And Suddenly I'm Not Afraid Anymore

I just have faith.

And Suddenly I'm Not Afraid Anymore
The Imaginative Conservative

You see I always knew God had a plan. I knew that he had a plan for me before I was even born. I was always excited to see what was in store for me, to listen to God and see what magnificent plans there were for my life. My advice for others was always "I know it's hard to understand but trust God, he has a plan and he will lead you."
And I learned first hand that it is hard. When you go through your own personal battles it's easy to get lost in the world and not lost in the word. It can be hard to understand that there's a reason and a purpose that you go through certain things and that he will lead you to bigger and better things. I wouldn't say that I doubted God, but I was confused. It was hard.
However, now I'm hearing God. I'm here to say there really is a reason and a purpose for you. If you can't believe that now at least hear what I'm saying. God has a plan for you. One you couldn't even imagine, one that is so incredible and made specially for you. You're strong enough to get through what you're going through. There will be storms in your life but it's during those times that you look to God and can be calmed. With God by your side you can begin to understand and hear what He's calling you to. Read the word, pray to God, and strengthen your faith in the times when you can't strengthen yourself. God is always with you. Turn to him, not just in your troubles, but everyday. Our God is great and wants to lead you, it's up to you to choose to follow him. I did, and I’m not afraid anymore, I’m confident in my God and I promise it'll be a great journey when you are too.

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.
