Look To Him

  • Tonight I was sitting in my apartment all alone and I decided to start writing in my journal/ praying to God just about certain fears of this semester coming up. I was focusing more on the good things that will come of this year and praying specifically for our apartment and for all of our relationships. That we, (the three other girls + myself) would spur one another on to love the Lord. So as i’m sitting here and praying for that and new changes that are sneaking up on me, my roommate walks into my room. She sits across from me on the empty bed that my roommate hasn’t yet moved in, and all of a sudden our convo takes off. We talked about our fears and about what we want to work on, we talked about God and His work in our lives this summer. We encouraged and spoke truth and we both decided to hold each other/ the other girls accountable. Just like that my prayers were answered and God showed me without a doubt a little taste of what this semester is going to be about. My heart is so full and it is honestly the coolest feeling to know that He was listening and that He wants the best for me. I know it wasn’t an accident and Kirsten (my roommate) most definitely didn’t need to stay up and talk. She has a way early morning…but man was it worth it. Can’t wait for more nights like these and to keep remembering that He really is in control and he has good things planned for us. 

  • Lately i’ve been overwhelmed with a peace I haven’t felt in years. For the first time in a while I actually see the bigger picture and don’t let all the little details trip me up. I use to let everything affect me, and it would change my mood in seconds. But i’ve really found that The Lord is in charge of it all and He works for the good of those who love Him. So why should I worry about the forming relationship that could crash at any moment or about my apartment and what it will look like, or even getting that 4.0 i’ve been dreaming about. It’s been freeing, i’ve felt new and burden free, because I have been handing it all to Him.I encourage you to try it, because my dear friends it’s been incredible to sit in His hands and depend on Him. Try it out, you won’t be disappointed.

  • When life feels like it’s spinning out of control, is when you gotta reach high and look hard for God. That’s something He has been teaching me… That even when you feel like you are completely lost and have no idea what on earth you are doing you HAVE to cling to Him. There will be days you won’t do that, and those days will be the hardest but on the days you realize you need him, you’ll find peace. I can’t say i’ve achieved that in the past few weeks, but I know that’s where I want to be. In the Lords presence, with peace dwelling within me. 

    My prayer lately: 

    "Let it be Jesus, the first name that I call. Let it be Jesus, my song inside the storm. I’ll never need another, cause Jesus there’s no other." 

  • When temptations come (1 Cor 10:13)

    1. Temptations happen to everyone, don’t feel singled out.
    2. Others have resisted temptation, and so can YOU.
    3. Any temptation can be resisted because God will show you a way out.

    God will aide you and help you

    1. Recognize those people and situations that give you trouble.
    2. Run from anything you know is wrong. 
    3. Choose to do only what is right.
    4. Pray for God’s help.
    5. Seek friends who love God and can offer help when you are tempted.

    Running from a tempting situation is your first step on the way to victory.
