Near Tragedy

It’s strange to consider the proximity of the scariest things to our lives—the smallest decisions that lead to the greatest consequences or the most uncontrolled things that so decide to grace our lives with their hovering and overpowering, fear-filling tendencies. We are strangely close to car accidents, addiction, cancer, natural disasters—horrors virtually uncontrollable by anyone. […]

In the Hands of Trust

I would really love if someone could explain, in an incredibly simple way, why it is so hard to trust God when I have seen His faithfulness over and over again. He is Healer. He is Father. He is Love. He is Peace. He is Good. He is Trust. I always find it funny when […]

So Here We Are

It’s been too long! I’m sorry I’ve been MIA for a while! This semester is going wildly, and busy seems to be my word of the month (or rather the year)! I plan to start posting at least twice a month (hopefully much, much more than that, but we’ll set our standards at something I […]

I Love Acting

I love acting. In fact, it’s one of my favorite things. I’m very good at it. I love writing façades for people to take on, and I love taking them on myself. It’s really quite fun. But you know where it becomes not fun? I’m sure you see where this is going—in my actual life. […]

Homesick

Today, I was sitting in my favorite coffee shop, and I felt a pang in my heart – an indescribable longing I hadn’t really experienced before. I have seen people excited for the Kingdom to come, and I have read about Paul’s passion to be in the arms of Jesus, but never had I experienced […]

Where You Find Your Worth

I often find myself wondering what I’m really worth. The world tells us all that being confident in ourselves, being content in who we were created to be, is ridiculous – that we should always be striving to look better, be more agreeable, and fit the norm. And it doesn’t matter that we’re told to […]

Battling Rejection

I think nearly everything we struggle with, specifically in relationships, but honestly just in general, can be boiled down to this one fear: rejection. What do you think of when you read that word? A person, a situation, a fear? Whatever it is, it’s painful because rejection is the greatest slap in the face anyone […]
