Today’s Theme: Trust
“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. :)

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

Today’s Theme: Peace
“Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where this is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.” – Unknown
“God is not a God of disorder but of peace” – 1 Corinthians 14:33a
This week, I saw God give me peace. Normally when I have big tests or events, I get really nervous and anxious. On Saturday, I went to take my SAT. Before the test began, I asked God to give me “peace that surpasses all understanding”. I didn’t realize until afterward that I was completely calm the entire time I was taking the test. My peace comes from God and because of that, I will praise HIM.
Hey, everyone! How has your 2017 been so far? This year, I wanted to start something new on my blog: Motivation Mondays. Twice a month (on a Monday) I will post a motivational post to cheer you on and to encourage you to keep going. It will include a quote, a Bible verse, and sometimes a little blurb from me on the topic. I’m sure you all will enjoy it!
*Note: Every picture in every Motivation Monday post is from Pinterest. The pictures are not mine.*

Today’s Theme: Progress
A little progress each day adds up to big results.
