Is God Calling You To A Purging Process This Time In Your Life?

It may be subtle or blunt but that doesn't change what He's calling you to do.

Is God Calling You To A Purging Process This Time In Your Life?

We all go through seasons in our lives that we aren't happy with who we are, what we are doing, or who we surround ourselves with. We find worldly things to make us more comfortable and forget the uneasiness we feel about our lives. It may be food, Netflix, Instagram, or anything we can hide our feelings in. We get so used to this numbing process that our natural inclination when uneasiness arises is to go to these things and ease this calling we label as bad. But, why do we label it so negatively? Why is it that when life isn't going the way we want it, when our friends don't agree with us, or that when we're pulled out of our comfort zones we see it as bad?

The voice inside of us calling us out of our comfort zones, making our daily lives feel a little less secure is seen as the enemy. We want control and we want to know where we're going. Change can be scary, but only if you give it power. Why can't we change our perspective and embrace change and the beauty of seasons in our lives. Nothing lasts forever except for God's love for us so why don't we cling to that? Why is it that the one constant in our lives is the one thing we reject the most and try to fill with temporary things?

Spend some time alone. Reflect on your life whether it's the last month, two years, or ten years. Invite God in and ask Him where He's calling you to go and what He's asking you to let go of. The restlessness inside of you is Him speaking to you. You can either run from it for the rest of your life and let it constantly catch up to you or you can turn it over and ask Jesus for peace and guidance. He will lead you, I promise. It's a matter of us willing to listen. As soon as we give Jesus our hearts and our ears, He will speak to us. But, don't be afraid to be uncomfortable and let go of things. With less weighing us down, the more free we are to live this life God intended for us.

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.

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.
