Remember This Verse In Times Of Confusion: An Attempted "Rhyming" Addition

Here is what the Lord has taught me about always trusting him in times of confusion and pain.

Remember This Verse In Times Of Confusion: An Attempted "Rhyming" Addition

My eyes hurt and my heart aches.

No matter what I do, I am somehow always restless and always awake.

I do not know what to do anymore to stop my emotions that rage. How do I know what pain feels like for someone my age?

Fifteen to eighteen so blind and so confused. Somehow, His hidden company was always my muse.

Sometimes I feel as though I am being dramatic, and then I become ashamed. I think to myself, if I only had another shot, I wish I had another quarter left in this game.

Take this experience and use it to learn and grow they say...but how can I learn and grow from something that makes me feel pain in my heart almost everyday?

Sometimes change is great, but this kind of change is the type of change that society wants me to inevitably hate.

I do not hate this change anymore, I truly believe it was for the best. Now that it is over, I have a few things that I want to confess...


Fifteen to eighteen was when I truly felt as though I had lost all connection with my one and only divine. I now know that He bought me this heart-breaking change to simply get me back in line.

Getting back in line was not an easy task. Every single day I would constantly look to they sky and ask:

"What can I do for you to allow me to bring back my happiness of the past?"

I honestly thought that He was ignoring me, but I kept hearing a voice that told me "this too shall pass."

The feelings of confusion, sadness and pain have almost all passed away from my heart. I finally feel content with where I am in life, and I thank God everyday for what feels like a fresh start.

For the longest time I never understood why God was doing the things that He did.

However, now I understand. God took something away from me, because He never wants our connection and relationship to grow less or end.

God had a greater plan for me, even with a hard to swallow pill. Nonetheless, now I will always remember that John 13:7 states:

Jesus replied, "You do not know what I am doing now but someday you will."

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
