Let your will be done.

An Open Prayer To God About The New Semester

Dear God,

I know that you are so mighty, and above all. I know to trust you with everything I have, and to love you with all my heart, mind, soul, and strength. I thank you for a blessing of furthering my education when I know it did not have to be done. I thank you for all of the doors you have opened, and doors you have closed. I thank you for a new year, and a new semester. I thank you for an amazing roommate and perfect loving parents. I thank you for a caring boyfriend and a great pool of new friends. I thank you for future security and guidance.

As this new semester brews in, I pray that everyone has a motivating and productive first week. I pray for organization and calm nerves. I pray for guidance for myself and others that I know, and for the students I will never meet. I pray for boosted GPAs, boosted self-esteems and boosted career opportunity. I pray for goals to be met, and successful lives.

I pray people become more open minded and accepting. I hope that your love floods the Earth. I hope that you bless each student abundantly. I pray for safety on campus, and for safety on a national scale. Your power should be shown to the world because we need you so much right now. I know not everyone believes in your power, but I pray that if they refuse it, they still know a love like yours. I know you still love them, and I will too.

I pray for the men and women who cannot see their family because they are overseas. I pray for students who worry about their parents, brother, sisters, cousins, and friends who are fighting while they are in school.

I pray that each person on this campus has an amazing semester, that they meet their academic goals, and that this semester is done at your will.

In your name we pray,

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media. I hope the author of this was kidding or using digital sarcasm, but I am still repulsed and shocked by the lack of appreciation throughout this article. I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
