Life Is Too Short, No Matter How Long You Live

Psalm 39:4 reigns true.

Life Is Too Short, No Matter How Long You Live
Marleigh Moran

Last night, I was reading through Psalm 39. Psalm 39:4 reads, "Show me, Lord, my life's end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is." From this verse, I simply learned life is too short.

Life is too short no matter how long you live.

It's too short to not tell that person that you love them.

It's too short to not eat that extra scoop of ice cream.

It's too short to not travel the world.

It's too short to not check things off of your bucket list.

Lately, I have been challenging myself to love the life that I live. Every aspect. God gave each of us one life. It is too short to worry about silly things or to complain about unimportant things.

Everyone should find time to step back and really see what is prioritized in your life. If you are chasing after something that is worldly or not in God's will for your life, then changes need to be made.

Trust me, I am not calling anyone out or longing to make people feel bad about themselves. I am just expressing what is going on in my heart. I've recently had to change some things in my life because I know that they weren't giving glory to God.

God has a purpose for each person: to make Heaven crowded.

You only have one life. It's obviously up to you how you spend it. I challenge you to see if you are truly where God wants you to be. If you aren't, then changes might have to be made.

That can be hard, I know, but God is a great listener who is understanding and loving. Trust in Him.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
