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.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
