His Steadfast Love Endures Forever

My all time favorite verse from the Bible and why exactly you all should read it and adopt this way of loving others because we are so undeserving of this love, but it will forever be freely given to us.

His Steadfast Love Endures Forever

Psalms 136 is all about God's love for us and how it is steadfast. Now, when i first read that I didn't quite understand the word steadfast. I mean I knew what going steady was like back in the day dating, but I didn't understand what steadfast meant. So, I luckily pulled out my phone and typed in my google search "steadfast."

The meaning of steadfast is this: resolutely or dutifully firm and unwavering.

Now let's put that into our verses and see what God is telling us through this new definition.

God says in every. single. verse. of the entire passage this phrase "for His steadfast love endures forever."

GUYS. are you seeing what I'm seeing? God tells us that His love, His freaking love will never falter, it'll never waver, it'll forever be there for you and me. God will forever love us no matter what we do or say because His love for us is firm and unwavering. This is so amazing.

How could we ever deserve this? How could us sinners face God and ask for His love even when we make mistakes and fall short of His expectations. I'll tell you how we are able to receive this type of love. It's all because of our great earthly messenger: Jesus. When Jesus took the burden of all our sins on the cross and died an awful death He was only thinking about us. Before He died He literally said that God should not punish those hurting Him because they did not know of what they were doing.

Guys. we don't deserve His grace and we surely don't deserve His forgiveness or love. However, God is wanting to give us more than just this. God wants to give us all the beautiful things that this world has to offer. He wants to save us from ourselves because the love He has for us is never going to falter. That is so unbelievable. I truly think that I'll never be able to wrap my brain around that concept.

People, this is why this passage has spoken so many volumes to me. My greatest fear in life is never finding someone that can truly love me as I am but jokes on me cause I've had this person my entire life. I was just not in touch with my faith and I didn't have deep roots or an open relationship with Jesus. My heart did not know of His true glory and joy that He brings into every life He touches, but once I did, I couldn't get enough.

I want you all to love people just as God loves us. He wants you all to love your neighbor as you love yourself and as He loves you. Take His lessons on steadfast love and apply them to your own lives. Become the person in your life with a strong and unwavering love for everyone. I know that I strive each day to do this and even though I fall short I have faith and know that God is using me and nurturing this love for others as a way to spread His word.

God is so good. So, please adopt this way of love and come and enjoy His goodness with me!

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.

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.
