I May See Road Blocks, But God See's Opportunities.
Stocksnap

Sometimes we hit a dead end. We run into a sign that tells us to turn around, to take the detour ahead or merge because the lanes about to end. These signs and actions are difficult to accept. In fact, I often wish I could plow right through them. I wish I could blink and traffic would be clear, with an open road in sight. But, life doesn't work like that. We don't always get everything we want, because it's NOT always what we truly need.

I think God works this way. Sometimes we want to rush ahead, we want to get that internship, the "perfect" job, that "perfect" relationship or opportunity placed before us. We want smooth sailing ahead. With nothing in our path to stop us. But, more often than not, God has other plans. He knows what you need. He knows your deepest desires and hopes, your wants and your needs. He takes into consideration everything and everyone around you, and sometimes this means that God throws up the 'roadblock' ahead sign.

You see, He places these roadblocks in our lives to challenge us and change us. He takes you down a detour, he asks you to merge into another lane because He sees opportunities that we our to blind to see. He knows who we are to our very cores and He see's roadblocks as opportunities for us to further grow in Him. He see's our lives and our desires, but more importantly, He is able to see our needs.

So, the next time you hit a roadblock, don't look for an opportunity to plow ahead. But rather, sit in this new adventure. Take the detour and you might just experience something remarkable. Follow Gods plan and you might just be given an opportunity that you never thought possible.

Rest in the now and move ahead. But, don't be afraid of the roadblocks when they occur, because sometimes the roadblocks we see as inconveniences, are Gods greatest opportunities.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

7675

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
