    To the Christian Girl Who is Waiting for Healing

    Hello lovely one! My goal is to revive this blog, and I wanted to give you all an update on something important in my life: My health journey.  The subject of healing was often the kryptonite of my faith. I’ve often wondered, why does God heal some people in this life, while letting others suffer? Why does He answer the prayers of certain saints and not others?  My Journey I decided to follow Jesus at the age of seventeen–not really understanding what it meant. That’s also the time my health took a downturn, both mentally and physically.  Throughout the years, God delivered me from depression, panic attacks, hair pulling, and…

    Shining Through the Darkness

    A light will always shine brightest in the darkness.  I find it amazing how one small candle or night light can illuminate an entire room. I tend to wander around my apartment at night without my glasses, and that often leads to missed steps and stubbed toes.  However, a little light from my phone’s screen changes everything. Suddenly I see what’s right in front of me. I know exactly how far the edge of my bed is or if there’s a cat toy on the floor.  I see things as they really are. I see the truth.  That’s what happens when the light of the Gospel shines on our hearts.…

    How a Season of Growth Can Transform Your Faith

    It was one of the most vivid dreams I have ever had. And believe me, I dream of some crazy stuff. I rolled the ankle of my jeans up to reveal tiny green stems with leaves sprouting from my legs. Yes, lovely reader, I was Groot (any Guardians of the Galaxy fans out there?). I was seriously freaked out by this dream, and paranoid that I really would become some sort of plant woman. This was only a few months ago, but I had forgotten about it until spring came with its budding trees. For me, this dream represents growth. Growing is never easy, and something that all of us…

    What Godly Confidence Really Looks Like

    Nothing can squelch self-confidence like having health issues. Having physical limitations and not being like everyone else is hard. And it’s something I’ve struggled with for the last six years. Although God has done tremendous healing in me and blessed me with excellent healthcare, there are still moments of struggle. One thing I choose not to do is drive. I have POTS and vertigo, which make driving uncomfortable. I have some visual sensory issues and great anxiety with driving, and this has affected my confidence in significant ways. Not only is not being able to drive inconvenient, but it’s also a little embarrassing when you’re almost 24 years old and…
