I Am Nothing Without God

In all my goals, I'm nothing without God.

I Am Nothing Without God
Janiya Winchester

When I say 'dangerous' I refer to those people that do things with mind-blowing excellence. I mean those people that are so gifted and accomplish things in such a way that it makes you just wonder about them or you feel inspired by them. You can't quite put your finger on it. In my experience, I've learned most times these people inspire me so much because I see the God they love so much that they allow God to use them in what they're doing.

When I was younger I always wanted that. I wanted to be obedient and be used by God for his glory. He's done SOOO much for us beyond what we could afford on a maybe. He did it all on a maybe or if you would use your free will to be with Him or not. No greater love than that.

If I wanted to be technical about my walk with God I would say that I started taking my relationship with Him seriously about 8-9 years ago. So over these 8-9 years, I would say that I could do nice things and mirror the things that Christians do but I would run out if I didn't seek God. If I didn't seek Him and ask Him questions about who I am, why I'm here, why He did all of this for me, what did Jesus do and what does all this have to do with me then I wouldn't last.

Over these years I've been able to experience God exercising fruits of the spirit in me (love, peace, joy, humility and more). This taught me that I could never be as great in my way of loving others, giving to others, being patient with others, in my relationship to myself and others, and in anything I do as a career without God.

I really believe that because there's an indescribable, supernatural difference and experience. There's an overall Kingdom experience and mindset that you tap into when you serve Him.

There are connections, groups, opportunities, relationships, conversations and more that I've been blessed to tap into from serving God rather than mimicking Christianity. There's a difference.

I've noticed how the Kingdom experience and heart posture of servitude is on a much deeper level. It has allowed me to gain things that have changed my nature in how I love, give, treat others, do and pursue career work and school work.

In all our goals and accomplishments, we are nothing without God but we can be everything in God when we choose Him.

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.

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.

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.
