Breakaway On Kyle Field

This cold Tuesday night was only the beginning.

Breakaway On Kyle Field
Breakaway Ministries

I always feel blessed to be a part of this amazing university. But last night, I was shown exactly how lucky I am through one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Breakaway Ministries at Texas A&M took place on Kyle Field. The biggest stadium in the SEC was not just home of the fightin’ Texas Aggies, but also home to thousands of students gathered together to lift up Jesus’ name, to shout his praises, and to come together to worship our King. The excitement and authentic love was palpable; it was as if you could literally feel each one of our voices joining together. As we all packed together in the 40-degree wind, huddled under blankets and scarves, my entire body was covered in goosebumps. And they had absolutely nothing to do with the weather.

Texas A&M is an incredible university for many reasons, and last night, it was even more clear that one of the biggest reasons is the miracle that is Breakaway. I say miracle because there are few things that will bring this many young people together, and the idea that we were all there to worship is absolutely amazing. Tuesday nights at 9 p.m., hoards of students gather together for the sole purpose of glorifying Him. Last night, as I watched the seats begin to fill up, the most noticeable thing about all of the attendees was the diversity. The students poured in, and I stood there, awed. It seemed that there were peers from almost every organization, every walk of life, every race and background; we were all here. Together.

The music started and the shouts of the excited crowd were visibly lifted towards the sky with each breath hitting the freezing air. As the family of followers stood together, some with arms lifted, some on their knees, and most with eyes closed, shouting out our thanks and love, one thing became abundantly clear. There is a movement happening here. There is a stirring amongst the students of Texas A&M. Let today be the start of something even more; no longer will our love for Christ be a subtle wind rustling through the trees, but a tsunami of passion for anyone and everyone to see. Let us all join together, not just Tuesday nights, but every day. Let us walk together, hand in hand, heart to heart; let us journey together in our walks towards God. There are no limits to a campus who not only allows something like Breakaway, but who will support it (and each other) wholeheartedly.

There was no rain last night. But the presence of God over this campus was poured out for every witness to see and to feel. The flood of love and forgiveness, and the thunder of His joy were the perfect, most beautiful storm. Let this be the storm that never ceases. Let this be just the beginning.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
