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.

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

Talking To God

Hey y’all! It’s pretty late in the day when I’m writing this, but I just started a new job and I kinda forgot that today was Saturday and that I have to post… oops! But here I am with a new post!

At my job, I have a lot of time to myself. I have to get up early in the morning though, around 4:30 to 5:00, but much closer to 5:00. I’ve never been an early riser. Mornings aren’t my thing, so this has been an adjustment. However, I’m discovering that it doesn’t have to be a bad thing.

At first I thought I would have no time in the morning to do my devotionals, now that I’m working all morning. But I’ve found the opposite to be true. Continue reading

7 Things God Says Not To Do

7 Things God Says Not To Do

Hey y’all! I’m posting this early because I’m excited about it and I couldn’t wait till Saturday to post it! Haha πŸ™‚

I was trying to figure out what kind of post to write for this week and I was reading through Proverbs and just kinda stumbled onto this verse! It’s Proverbs 6:16-19, it reads:

“These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto Him..” and it goes on to list those seven things. I felt drawn to this passage and I wanted to write about it since God laid it on my heart! πŸ™‚

So let’s just get into it! Continue reading

Just Be Yourself

Just Be Yourself

I hate calling this a “self love” post, cause that sounds so mushy. Let’s call a motivational post. It’s a confidence post! πŸ˜‰

I grew up in a relatively large family. My twin brother and I were the youngest of 8 kids. My older siblings, not all of them, but most of them, went through college and two of them now are very well established in their careers. There was always this indescribable pressure to live up to what they’d achieved.

But I’m just now learning that I don’t have to.

It’s great that they have all that stuff, that works for them.

But college, tedious levels of studying, a high-pressure job like an engineer and all that; it’s just not for me.
