    Help a Dog!

    So I went back and forth in my mind deciding whether or not my blog would be an appropriate place to share this. Well, since my friend Cody is in desperate need, the Holy Spirit is tugging my heart, and this is my blog, why not! This is Cody, and he is one extraordinary young man. I often take a cab to college because I can’t drive (due to health issues). Anyway, Cody picks me up a lot, and I’ve gotten to know him quite well. Cody is in his twenties but works twelve hour shifts so he can take care of himself and his fourteen year old nephew--who he’s…

    Moments

    (Photo Credit) Sometimes in the moments Of a quietly darkened night, I wonder what there is to be  thankful for. All the hurt, the lies, and the fear of this world Make me doubt for anything more. But then  You find me– Ripening my soul with the sweetest touch. It’s the sunlight that comes through the dusty window, Or the feeling of the crisp winter air at my face. Because I know that every minute can be spent Wasted in my weary mind, Or they can be used to paint the world with Your vivid colors. Every laughter and cry Is a gift that must be cherished, Because they mean that life…

I’m sure all of you other college students (or graduates) can sympathize with me here. So how am I doing? Well, to be honest sometimes I really don’t feel like I know what I’m doing (economics I’m looking at you). It’s helpful that I am able to use notes on half of my exams though! Seriously though…four?? But I know God is with me giving me strength! We can do this everyone! I find prayer and caffeine to be the most effective techniques for studying.…

    How to Live By God's Spirit

    As Christians, there is a common scenario that is probably familiar to all of us: someone gets hurt or sick and we pray for them to be healed. However, that’s also when those feelings of doubt can come creeping in and we wonder, “what if they’re not healed?” This has troubled me for quite some time. I have witnessed healings and miracles, and I fully believe in the active presence of the Holy Spirit. However, just like everyone else, even I have doubts. I get frustrated when my prayers aren’t answered right away, and sometimes I can’t help but wonder if it was because I didn’t pray hard enough. Like I said…

    I Need Your Help!

    Happy Sunday fellow followers and readers! Normally I don’t post on Sundays, but this is important. My old friend from high school, Olivia, is fighting like a champion to recover form a serious blood infection. She is a twenty year old young lady, who is one of the sweetest people I know from school. Olivia has had over a liter of pus drained from her stomach, surgeries, and is on a breathing tube. She almost died, but is now on the road to recovery! On behalf of this daughter of God and her family, I am asking that you pray for her. Please pray for healing for her lungs, liver,…
