"Cast your cares on Him for He cares for you."1 Peter 5:7 Lately this line has been on repeat in my mind. As I think about the season I'm in, I'm frequently reminded that I don't have to have all the answers. I don't have to figure everything out today. I don't have to worry … Continue reading Growing in God: He Cares for You

Four times in the past week, He's reminded me of the same message. God's timing is PERFECT. I want to use this moment to share how He's been speaking this to me and share what's on my heart regarding the topic.

How often do we go through our every day lives and never even stop to thank Him for even the small things He's doing in those very moments? How … Continue reading When God Came Through
Lately, God has been pushing me to write more about what I'm currently in rather than waiting until I've overcome it to share the struggle - so here I am.

In my last post, Single, Celibate & Struggling (Part 1), I talked about many of the reasons why I've decided to wait until I'm married to have sex. While I am standing firm in my commitment, waiting is no less of a struggle. Even with all of the benefits that come with waiting, I can … Continue reading Single, Celibate & Struggling: The challenges of waiting (Part 2)
I thought I was going to write one long post about this, but as I began to type, I realized I had too much to say for one post - so this will be a 2 (or 3) part series.

"I am the True Vine and my Father is the gardener. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes, that it may bear more fruit." -John 15: 1-2 When I first read this passage, I remember wondering why would God want to prune … Continue reading Pruning Season: Cutting off everything that’s holding you back
