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…

never alone

never alone

“If God hadn’t been there for me, I never would have made it. The minute I said, “I’m slipping, I’m falling,” your love, God, took hold and held me fast. When I was upset and beside myself, you calmed me down and cheered me up.” ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭94:17-19 MSG have you ever felt that no matter how much you pray, God doesn’t listen? that the more and more you pray, the worse things get? maybe it just feels like God is…

“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and…

filling our hearts with love

i’m currently working on a project about a topic i love. i’m speaking to middle school girls about body image & how to love themselves. speaking about the topic comes naturally to me. i’ve always tried to encourage my friends to love themselves, so talking to younger girls seems super exciting. however, as i’m praying and researching- i’m realizing that i’m a total hypocrite. i beat myself up emotionally every day over something i say, a grade i make, or…

in genesis chapters 21 and 22 we learned the story of Abraham and Isaac. if you haven’t read it lately, let me give you the gist: God gave Abraham and his wife, Sarah, a child when they were super old and not normally able to bear children. they named the child Isaac as God told them to. Abraham loved his son so much. he was so joyful. well, fast forward a few years later when Isaac was a young teen….

“by his wounds we are healed.” Isiah 53:5 hey loves! welcome back to My Love For The Lord. in honor of Easter week, i’ve decided to post 2 blogs. one today, Good Friday, and one on Easter itself. surely i’m not the only one who has trouble understanding why the day we recognize Christ’s death, is called “good.” i mean, christ died a terrible & brutal death on this day, i can’t imagine seeing this day as anything except sad!…

taking advantage of forgiveness

taking advantage of forgiveness

Let’s talk about forgiveness. This topic has been on my heart for a while now, and as i was flipping through my bible trying to find a topic to blog about, i came across the perfect verse. Ephesians 1:7       As Christians i feel like we rely HEAVILY upon forgiveness. our mindset is predictable, when we commit a sin, we send a quick prayer up to God to say sorry, then we go about our day and don’t…

drifting from fear

drifting from fear

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6           Hey lovelies! Welcome back to my blog! This week I’m talking about fear. Now, this blog isn’t focused on worldly fears. I’m not talking about fears of spiders, snakes, wild animals, or whatever y’all are afraid of. Instead I’m focused on the fears of loneliness, failure, and death. loneliness  I don’t know…

relentless pursuit

relentless pursuit

For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:5 On this week’s blog I will write about what I’ve learned this past month instead of focusing solely on scripture. Woooow. This month has been tough. I’ve sent a bunch of angry prayers up to God lately. Sure, some parts have been amazing! I’ve blogged A LOT, and I couldn’t be happier about that. I’ve learned so much by interpreting scripture. I’ve also attended my church more and more…
