A Prayer For My Future Self

In any sort of hardship, I hope you read this.

A Prayer For My Future Self

Dear Lord,

I thank you for the life that you have allowed me to live. I thank you for the people that you have put into my life and the experiences and lessons that I have endured.

Thank you for allowing me to grow with You and through You every single day, and I pray that I always surrender myself to You each and every day. May I always live my life according to You. May others always see Christ through me in everything I do.

I pray that I know You are always with me and allow for myself to always choose Your will and Your plan over whatever else comes before me. I pray that You allow me to see the plan You have laid out for my life, and I spend each day pursuing the person You want me to become.

I pray that I always trust You fully. I pray that I am able to pray and talk to You when I feel as if I am struggling, overwhelmed, or just feel like giving up. I pray that when hard times come, I do not question You or "why me", but rather, "what's the purpose" and "what's this supposed to teach me".

I pray that no matter where I am at with my path of life, I have people who love Christ surrounding me, helping me through whatever I need, and me doing the same for them. I pray that my connections with people are built through You and not worldly desires.

I pray that You use me each and every day to help bring a little bit of You into someone's life, no matter how small the action is or the little bit of conversation that I have with them. I pray that You use me to share Your Word and Your love.

I pray that You allow me to be the best mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend, and anything else that I become. I pray that I love unconditionally and forgive wholeheartedly every time. I pray that I do not hold things against people, and I pray that I never use people's pain or faults against them.

I pray that I always help my children, husband, grandkids, and others pursue their life with Christ. I pray that I am a Christian influence for them. I pray that together, we all grow closer to You and each other.

I pray that each day, no matter how hard, I take time and give it all to You. I pray that every single day, I bow my head in prayer to You and give thanks for the life that I am living.

I pray that no matter where I am at within my walk of life that I never become complacent with where I am or my relationship with You. May I always have the passion to pursue You further. May I never allow anything or anyone to disrupt my relationship with You.

I pray for guidance, love, and the ability to see good in every single day.

In Jesus' name, I pray.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
