To Be Untrue To Who God Created You To Be

I have been sulking in the chair of self moderation while stretching my legs out for the footrest of approval. It’s an easy chair to sit on and the footrest begs for you to put your legs upon it but it’s not the seat we were ever meant to sit in. My favorite word of all time is celebrate. I…

The Boundaries of The Beholder

“The thing you are most afraid to write. Write that.” -advice to young writers I have been attempting to rid that quote from my head for about a month now with no luck granted. This topic is linked with fear in my heart solely because of the reaction and disengagement a convicted reader may have after the scrolling of this…

A Letter To Young Women | We Are Already Brides

I have written a fair amount of articles on dating, on marriage, on relationships between two human beings but the number is lessened when counting those I have written on the absence of it all. And I want to fix that because although I agree with all my past writings, I believe there are more than enough blogs on the internet…

Struggling With The Gospel

I find there is an immense amount of pressure, especially within the society of generation y, to have the gospel figured out in total. In other words there is a growing pressure to be able to comprehend the incomprehensible. It is strange that the sin motioning around in our hearts is so deep that we take something so pure and…

A Poem Called A Cup Half Way Full

You gave me the sunset, but I asked for the clouds. You gifted me a symphony of love, but I longed, a simple sound. You passed on to me the seas, but I wanted only a drop of rain. You delivered a resolution, but I felt as I needed, only a temporary cure of pain. You donated the galaxy to my soul,…

Rushing To The Cross

I have seen hundreds of articles on what you should say, wear and think during sorority recruitment. I am not writing this as a twenty-one year old who has viewed both sides of the week-long process. I am writing as an eighteen year old who is going through the first side of the exciting, draining, joyous, happening, week-long, “process.” I can’t…

The Gospel In A Nutshell

I forget it often. The whole thing, the entirety of the gospel, it escapes both my mind and heart as I live in a worthless rebellion. I whole heartedly believe this world would improve in areas of morality, peace and love if those who claimed the title as, “Christian,” read or even simply skimmed through the story of Jesus’ feet…

Five Lessons In Five Days

I learned these five lessons in the past five days. That’s all I have got for an introduction. Enjoy! “That’s not nothing.” -Brian Sorgenfrei Today I listened to another Mississippi State RUF sermon on my run which then transferred over into my car ride home. The topic was the reality of heaven, the truth that this world is not the end…

Remember Your Mission

Without disciplining ourselves through Christ in order to become near to Christ, we find ourselves far off from reality. To us, with no amazement of God or passion for fullness, we describe reality as what our eyes can see and what our hearts can feel. We feel inferior to all those surrounding us and that stands in our hearts as reality.…

We Are Missing It

I drove past a flag lowered at half-staff the other day and before I could ask myself the question of which occasion it was honoring, I interrupted myself to ask, which occasion could it not be honoring? It seems as if, in the last few months, when the sun rises, so does a new tragedy- a new headline, a new…

A Blog Post About God and Running And Other Stuff Too

I would say the way in which I eat and the level of my faithfulness are similar. They are similar because they are both far too fickle to have any promise linked to them. In my friend group I was voted, “Most likely to scarf down a bacon wrapped burger then call herself a vegan the next day.” That nomination…

A Poem Called The Dating Evaluation

Are they truly patient and kind or is your lie so constant, that you have chosen to view blind? Do they treat you as if you are chosen simply by them, or chosen by One far superior? Do they control you with their carelessness, begging that you play the role, inferior? Do they celebrate your mind and soul more than they do a feature? Do…

Having It All Together

There is something about a clean room or a well-organized desk. There is something about the aesthetic of visions like this, visions like this which make you feel as if you have your life completely together. And then quite often our visions of that organization transform into the thought of, “Okay, now I can be happy.” We are constantly living…
