There's A Time For Everything, Thankfully, We Don't Have To Figure It Out On Our Own

The Lord knows best.

There's A Time For Everything, Thankfully, We Don't Have To Figure It Out On Our Own
Courtney Rae Johnson

If there's one thing I've learned over the past few weeks, it's that there is a time for everything. There are going to be times that you want to just scream at the top of your lungs. There are going to be times that you laugh so hard you can't catch your breath. There are going to be times when your heart feels like it's been ripped out, and torn into a million pieces. There are going to be times that you cry, a lot. There are even going to be times that you don't feel anything, but those times are rare and almost impossible to pinpoint.

I've felt all of these things over the past few weeks. I've been so angry that I just needed a pillow to scream into. I've gone out with my girls and laughed til I forgot about all of the bad in life. I've felt torn apart, and I've cried my eyes out - all while begging for an answer from God as to WHY these things just kept happening over and over.

The more I ask for an answer, the more I realize that this is just life.

These feelings are human, these emotions need to be let out, these struggles are of this world - not of the Lord.

God isn't putting these struggles into our life just to watch us squirm. He's giving us these struggles so that we can become stronger in our faith. He gives these struggles to us so that we can ask Him for help - so that we realize just how much we need Him in our lives, every moment of every day.

There are beautiful and wonderful things in store for every one of us. He has a plan, He knows us thoroughly and completely. He knows what is best for us, even when we don't.

Thankfully, we don't have to figure it all out on our own. We are incredibly blessed to be loved by an incredible God who is here to walk us through every day of our life - regardless of what we deserve.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
