    God’s Stitches

    Do you ever look around and feel inadequate or unsure of your future? Do you compare yourself to others or question God’s plans for your life? Don’t worry lovely reader, you’re in good company. A few weeks ago these exact feelings were swirling around my brain. I was cleaning out my purse when I found the old crumpled up newsletter from my friend Michelle, who is a school teacher in Senegal. Her words were arrows to my heart, a message from God I wanted to share with you: We each represent one pixel of the greater purpose of God’s plan–which has always been and will always be about His glory and honor…

    The Lie of the Good Enough Christian

    Most of the time my Instagram feed is filled with posts about fashion and food (which are two things  I am very passionate about). However, there are posts that really make you stop and think wow, I really needed that. I wanted to share one of these posts from @cultureandgod with you today. Do you ever feel like God is unapproachable? Maybe you’ve repented of your sins and asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior. Now what? How do I become a good enough Christian?

    A Life Worth Noticing

    Have you ever laid out the on the grass, gazing at the stars as you try (and fail) to number them? Have you ever been struck by the glowing water colors of a sunrise or sunset? Have you ever stood at the shore of the ocean or a great lake and felt infinitely small? Imagine the God who created all of these things. The God who made the entire universe with His hands (Psalm 8:3)! And then there’s…us. I don’t know about you, but most of the time I feel like a pretty ordinary person. I go to college, babysit, write, and go to church. And yeah, that’s all awesome, but…

    Believe Again

    A Guest Post by Dainty M.  It’s absolutely exhausting and distressing to believe something will happen and it doesn’t. Or to believe someone wouldn’t do something and they do. When unpleasant things happen and disappointments lace our days, it’s really hard to believe in anything. Some people have stopped believing in love because their experience with it left them heartbroken. Some don’t believe in God because they felt disappointed by Him when bad things happened. I’ve trusted and believed something will happen this year but hey, the 8th month is about to roll around, when will it happen? I’ve drowned in despair and to be honest, believing again is much…
