a message on injustice

a message on injustice

i saw no better time than now to restart my blog and speak on a matter of great importance. i want to be mindful of my privilege and realize that my words should hold no weight over the words of POCโ€™s, but i also want to spread my message and my faith on this matter. for centuries, race and Christianity have been negatively intertwined. years ago, men and women of faith treated certain human lives like animals, solely because of…

seeking the truth

seeking the truth

lately i’ve been feeling pretty down on myself. i don’t know if my mindset has to do with my senior year: the realizations that i’m leaving my friends & family super soon, or if it’s simply just me being negative. thoughts of not feeling valued, appreciated, or loved fill my head practically daily now. it sucks, and i’ve had trouble staying positive about anything. after talking to a lot of my good friends, however, i’ve realized that i’m not alone…

signs from God

signs from God

have you ever asked for a sign from God, and you wouldn’t recognize His sign if it hit you in the face? yah, me too. all the time. if you relate to this, you have a pretty terrible habit that you need to break: picking and choosing signs that you ask for. you’re definitely not alone in this. i can’t tell you how many times i’ve sat down and prayed “Lord, give me a sign for ____.” Then, the second…

dry seasons in faith

do you ever feel like your faith is lacking? like you haven’t had a true conversation with God in a while? like no matter how much you go to church or pray, your faith never seems stronger? i call these times, “dry seasons.” they’re a lot more common in the Christian faith than you would think. i’ve been going through a dry season recently. prayer after prayer, blog after blog, sermon after sermon, small group after small group: nothing changes….

expectations vs. reality

expectations vs. reality

hey everyone! it’s been a while. i have to say, not blogging for 4 weeks has really put a dent in my prayer life! but i’m back now & ready to share God’s love and word. speaking of prayer, let’s talk about that today! have you ever seen those expectations versus reality posts on instagram or youtube? they’re kinda funny right? they normally show someone posing “perfectly” in one picture, and then showing someone completely blow it in the next….

some good news

some good news

hi friends! welcome to my love for the lord. i’m going to share a story the sermon i heard a few days ago. the news has not been good the past few weeks. every day there’s something that makes something else worse. sometimes it’s starts to feel like there’s no good news anymore. this past week i worked at my church’s VBS as a volunteer. each day had a theme and a bible story, and on Thursday our theme was…

music = prayer

music = prayer

hey y’all ๐Ÿ™‚ welcome to my love for the lord! this week’s post is pretty untraditional… but i felt like it needed to be shared!! my favorite way to pray & praise God is to listen to worship music. worship music is super therapeutic, especially when i’m feeling angry or sad. it also makes me feel safe. when i get in the car in the morning i usually turn on some peaceful christian music to keep me calm. it’s super…
