I pray this in Your name.

A Prayer For The World Today

Dear Lord,

I thank You and I praise You for the life that I live. I know that without You, I would not be where I am. I thank you for giving me the opportunity to live this life for You, giving me the chance to show and teach others about You and Your love.

Lord, I pray that You help guide others to live through You. I know that the world we live in, it is hard to find common ground. I pray that we find it through You. I pray that no matter what we have going on, no matter where we stand, that we all can come together and praise You. For You are the reason that we are all here.

Lord, I pray that this world finds love. Not society's version of love, but Your one, true love. I pray that this world can love like You, love through You. Lord, You love us all, no matter where we come from, where we are, or where we are headed. You created us in Your Divine image, and I praise You for that. I pray that we, as humans, can recognize Your love and love as You do.

Lord, I pray for forgiveness. Often, we as humans do not let things go. We want forgiveness from others, but do not want to forgive others. Lord, help us see that forgiveness is a two-way street. Help us understand that it is in Your will for us to forgive each other. Your One and Only Son, Jesus Christ, came to this earth to take away, or forgive, every human in existence of their sins. Lord, help us live like Him. Lord, I pray that we learn to forgive.

Lord, I pray that You help us find peace. I know that peace is through You, and You only. Just as it says in John 14:27, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid." Lord, let us be open to receive Your peace. Not as the world gives, but as You give.

Lord, I pray that as we move forward within our lives, not only individually, but together, we come to You more, we live through You. All things are doing through you, Christ Jesus.

I pray these things in Your name, Amen.

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.
