Everyone always talks about how we’re made up of the mind, body, and spirit. And I knew that. But…sometimes one forgets the importance of spending time with God to your own spirit. The past couple of months I haven’t been hearing from God as much. Logically, of course, I realize that there are seasons where…… Continue reading Feeding The Spirit
Category: Matters of the Heart
Topics range from God, abstract, to personal matters.
Y’all probably know by now that I tend to struggle with perfectionism. With perfectionism, comes a viewpoint that makes grace incredibly hard to understand. I think as humans, grace is a hard concept in and of itself. Most situations we encounter in life are performance based and there is no grace if you mess up.…… Continue reading Grace Abounding
Do you see it?
This past semester, I dived back into Disney Channel. I had stopped watching it for a while, because frankly, the amount of disrespect that was being shown to parents, not to mention making them look stupid, was unappealing. I was pleasantly surprised to find that several of the shows were no longer treating parents in…… Continue reading Do you see it?
Several days ago, I was sitting in my bed at night and that ancient battle of whether or not to go with what my flesh was wanting, or what I knew my spirit needed commenced. I had not spent time with the Lord or read the Scriptures much that week, and realized I needed to,…… Continue reading Lover’s Ballad
The Purest Love

This year the judges are Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan, and of course, with Ryan Seacrest as the host. As I was watching the second night, the very last audition shown caught my attention – and maybe, not for the…… Continue reading The Purest Love

There was action, humor, and everything in between, but I’ll save my longer review for another post 😉 After I see a movie, I like…… Continue reading Behind the Scenes
To Fear Or Not To Fear…
Fear. That dratted emotion that can get us all wound up and in a messy pit. Wouldn’t it be great, if we never experienced fear again, never had to worry over anything? Lived in a world where anxiety was non-existent? I think that would be pretty amazing. Unfortunately, we do live in a fallen world, and…… Continue reading To Fear Or Not To Fear…
The lights flash overhead – flash flash flash. The crimson curtains fall in perfect line across the stage – swish swish swish. In the crowd, dozens upon dozens of angels stand transfixed – gaze adoringly focused on their Lord. No sound is made, and yet there is an uncanny sense of destiny and heroism about to be…… Continue reading Undercover Boss
Yesterday, I was walking back to my dorm. My backpack filled with binders and school supplies bounced against my spine, straps secured over my shoulders. The summer heat and classic southern humidity filled the atmosphere, making me hurry towards the air-conditioned building: Ridgecrest South. It loomed in the near distance – students exiting and entering…… Continue reading Faithful Butterflies
Good Guys V.S. Bad Guys
Alright y’all, so I’m not really sure where I’m going with this blog post 😉 I’ve had a couple of ideas and thoughts floating around in my head, and figured I might as well try to put them into a cohesive mix-up of words and phrases. Lord willing, this will come together as some sort…… Continue reading Good Guys V.S. Bad Guys
