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.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
