A Message To The Ones Who Get Left Behind

Do you ever face the problem of people coming into your life and leaving before they even had the chance to see you?

Yea, me too.

We constantly come in contact with people who go just as quickly as they came and honestly, it sucks.

It hurts because they stay long enough for you to start opening up and then it's almost like they see who you are and get away as quick as they can. And that is the issue. They only see a little piece of who you are and not the whole thing. They sit and urge you to be yourself, but as soon as you are- you aren't enough.

I get it, the whole world isn't going to be your biggest support, but from where you're sitting now it seems like no one in the world supports you. You see joy in its purest form and it's taken from you.

You see people who love you, and then - just like that - they disappear.

I do have this to tell you, though. In the midst of all of the pain and frustration of them leaving you, you're one step closer to the people or person who won't. Sure, it may take a whole lifetime of heartaches, lonely nights, and long cries, but won't it be sweet when those nights crying aren't alone?

Won't it be so joyous when all that pain you thought would never go away eventually does?

In the book of Joshua, it is written "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."

You see, while you feel so alone right now you truly aren't. While you are spending your night wondering when someone will care enough to see you fully and stay just a little while longer, God is with you and longing for you to be with him.

As your heart is aching for someone to see you, God is wondering when you will see what he did for you.

As you sit and wait for something great, God is saying he is greater. Greater than your pain. Greater than your doubt. He is just greater and we need that.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
