Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful

candle1

I was aimlessly scrolling through Pinterest tonight looking at pretty pastel wallpapers with quotes on them and I suddenly got inspired to write a blog post.

The particular quote that I saw read something like, “I decided to be happy because it’s good for my health,” and it was just so simple. I just kinda sat there dumbfounded for a minute or two.

There are so many times that we make happiness out to be this big giant thing that we’re all striving for and it seems like this impossible journey to get to be happy. Continue reading

Are You Being Judged?

Are You Being Judged_

Hey guys! I’ve been gone for so long… I know. I feel horrible about it, really. But I’m back now. You won’t get rid of me that easy πŸ˜‰ haha

Anyway, a lot has happened while I’ve been away from the blogosphere. But what I really want to address now is kind of a touchy subject. It’s one that I’ve been dealing with a lot recently and I kinda wanted to just jump on here and vent about it and hope that maybe some of y’all can relate.

Have you ever been subjected to criticism and judgment, not by “enemies”, or anyone who’s not Christian, but by believers? By those who should love, accept, support, and encourage you? I certainly have, and it’s made me question certain things. Things that, as Christians, we are supposed to not only believe in but practice. Because really belief without practice is hypocrisy.

Setting Priorities

Can you believe that August is already here?! It’s crazy to me to think about it…

I’ve been thinking a lot about time management, about how I manage my time and what I do with the time that I have.

How To Pray

I started reading through Romans again a little while back, I wasn’t really searching for anything while I was reading, I was just kind of taking it in and trying to understand what I was reading.

As I picked up my Bible and started reading through it tonight, I came across this verse that stood out to me. It’s funny how that happens, isn’t it? One moment you’re just reading along just trying to understand what’s going on and then BAM. All of a sudden there’s a verse or two that just kind of stand out. It’s like it’s saying “Here I am! Read me!”

I love it when that happens!

Anyway… Continue reading

Learning From Job

Working Through Job

Here we are, on the 4th of July night, writing a blog post. Most people are probably out watching the fireworks and having bonfires and parties and all that.

I’m not personally a huge fan of fireworks because I know what they do to my poor doggy and I don’t like to see her scared. That being said though, Happy Independence Day! πŸ™‚

So instead of watching the fireworks, I am in my room in some comfy jammies with Zoey curled up on my bed, ears perked up, eyes wide open, watching me sit at my desk to write a blog post. Continue reading
