worrying and trust quote

“Worrying doesn’t change anything but trusting in God changes everything.” – Unknown

“When I am afraid, I put my trust in You.” – Psalm 56:3

Trust is one of the most important things in a relationship. It’s the same for our relationship with God. We have to learn to trust Him and His plans for our lives. That’s my challenge for you this week. :)

What It Means To Me

This song is a fun upbeat reminder that nothing is impossible with God and involves trust in God on our part. He can do so much more through us than we think; He can still do what is impossible to us.

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
 – Matthew 19:26

What It Means To Me

This song was a song that we used to sing a lot at church. It was especially meaningful to me because it explained how God has worked in my life, both physically and spiritually. God led me to a safe family into which I could be adopted and He led me to His Son through whom I can be adopted into His Kingdom. This song speaks to both sides and that’s why I love it. :)

Today’s Theme: Future

future_quote

“You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens.” – Unknown –

proverbs_19-21_he-is-in-control

“Many are the plans in a man’s heart but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” – Proverbs 19:21

As graduation crawls closer, people are always asking me what my plans are for the future. And the truth is, I don’t know and I don’t want to think about it. The future is a very scary thing for me, filled with uncertainty and unknowns. But as a Christian, I have to remind myself that I’m not in control; God is. So really, the future shouldn’t be that scary because God is already there. And that is a very calming thought.

Real Neat Blog Award

Hey, everybody! I was nominated for another award; this time it was the Real Neat Blog Award. I’m giving a huge thank you to Ashley from Quintessential Habits for nominating me for this award! I had a lot of fun with it and I’m sure she did too. Check out her blog here and her version of the award here. :)

rules

The ‘rules’ of the Real Neat Blog Award are: (feel free not to act upon them if you don’t have time; or don’t accept awards; etc.):

  1. Put the award logo on your blog.
  2. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  3. Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.
  4. Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.
  5. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)

Questions and Answers

  1. What is your perfect ice cream sundae? – This is probably the most interesting question that I’ve ever been asked but my perfect ice cream sundae would include sprinkles, warm cookie bits, and vanilla ice cream.
  2. Who has been the most influential person in your life? – I know this sounds cliche but, the most influential person in my life is God. He has been the One who shaped me into the person I am today! When I became a Christian, my life took an 180-degree turn. God love and mercy has influenced me to be a more loving, hard-working person.
  3. Where do you go to relax? Or what do you do? – When I need to relax, I normally go to my room to write or read. Sometimes, I’ll light a candle (I love the Hello Beautiful Bath & Body Works 3-wick candle) or play some great music (here are my recent favorite songs). The lighting in my room is beautiful in the mornings! It’s relaxing just looking at how the light shines in my room.
  4. Would you rather it be really hot, or really cold? – I would rather be really cold than to be really hot. Just think about it; if you’re cold you can always put on scarfs, fuzzy socks, and hats, but if you’re hot, you can’t put on anything to cool you down.
  5. When was the last time it snowed? – It snowed last Friday! It was SO pretty!
  6. What was the last movie you saw? – The last movie I saw was the 2007 version of Nancy Drew. I remember watching this movie when I was younger. I liked it then, and I still like it now! 
  7. Where would you go on a dream vacation? – I would love to go to London, England for a couple of weeks! There are so many places to visit there and in England in general.

Mind. Blown. 

mindblown

I’m sitting here by the beach, wind blowing in my hair, sun sparkling on the ocean, dolphins swimming through the water. It’s so beautiful. I feel my sunburn and think about how powerful the sun is even from so far away. A dolphin jumps through the air and I think about how beautifully made she is. I see the water in front of me extending far beyond the horizon and I think about how big God is. Everywhere I look, there is evidence of how amazing God is. It all just blows my mind.  Continue reading
