Potty Problems

What A Roll of Toilet Paper Taught Me About God!

Potty Problems

Happy Monday!

I have a brief story of motivation for you guys,

While in the bathroom at church on Sunday (sorry if this is “TMI” lol) I saw the toilet-paper was turned backwards on the holder which absolutely irritates my last nerve. As I flipped up the holder to turn the toilet paper the right way God spoke to me…

He stated…

“You see how easily you fixed that small problem, how easy it was for you to ‘turn it around’? This is what I do with your problems, this is how easy it is for me to fix your situations. I do not have to question or struggle to figure out anything, I AM the solution. My word states ‘And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?’ (Matthew 6:30). And just like that toliet-paper roll whenever you are going in the wrong direction, I will turn you around to the correct path.”

And as always, it hit me…

Sometimes in our walk with Christ, we only seek “surface level saving” we only allow God to graze the surface of our problems or better yet our lives! Allowing HIM to only remove the weed at the surface but not dig deep enough to destroy the root of the problem. Seeking HIM only when we run out of options instead of making HIM priority, numero uno. Failing to realize that the solution already lies in front of us, and it is HIM.

I say all of this to say, whatever you are fighting yourself with this week, this month, this year etc. Allow God to flip your problems just as easily and as quick as I flipped that toilet-paper roll. Allow HIM to do all of your dirty work and always allow HIM to be your supply.

This is easier said than done, I. KNOW. THIS. All I am asking you to do is say yes. One simple yes to God can change your life in ways you never knew were possible. Allow HIM to be the Father HE is desiring to be in your life, and as the loving Father HE is, HE will continue to guide you along the way.

I dare you to meditate on this scripture this week,

Romans 12:2

“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”

Begin, to allow God to change you piece by piece, bit by bit. Seek HIS will for your life and begin to KNOW that HE is your God. And when you KNOW that you are HIS child you will realize there will never be anything that you have to stress over again.

You are covered. You are healed and honey, you are saved.

I love you guys so much!!

If you would like to submit any prayer requests, ask any questions, etc, I am readily available to you! Contact me at dianiellison@gmail.com

Enjoy your already amazing week!

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.
