Why You Should Have Faith In God

"We can't always see where the road leads, but God promises there's something better up ahead. We just have to trust Him." - Psalm 56:3

Why You Should Have Faith In God

I was asked to write a Part 2 to my article that has been No.1 in my community.


I don't want to write a Part 2 because I feel that I owe it to myself and Christ to produce a piece of work that I wholeheartedly mean.

So, this article is dedicated to Him.

My father. My protector. My creator.

The Man that has my heart. Through the good and bad times.

For He is always with me. Every step of the way. Even in my darkest moments. Without His guidance, I would be lost.

He gives me the strength and courage to keep on fighting. To never give up.

This year I have learned the importance of what it is to have faith. To have faith that everything happens for a reason. To have faith that He wouldn’t give me more than I could handle. To have faith that He has better plans in store for me. To have faith in Him.

A sister from my private Catholic school, once told me, "God lets bad things happen to good people to bring them closer to Him."

I remember being confused, thinking: Why? Isn't He afraid of pushing people away from Him? I don't understand His reasoning to hurt the people that love Him. The people He loves unconditionally.

Now from experience, I believe that she is right. While we might stray at some point in our lives, we will find our way back to Him. If we allow ourselves to be open to His love.

He wants the best for each and every one of us. He wants us to make it to Heaven so we can spend the rest of eternity with Him. He wants ALL of us.

We have to be willing to give Him that.

We have to close our eyes, take a leap, and have faith that He will be there to catch us.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
