Beginnings

walllike.com

I have tried to have so many new beginnings that I've confused myself.

Jesus, I'm confused.
Jesus, I am tired.
I can't get the strength up to do what I know I need to.

Jesus, I need You to make me new again, like you did a year ago.

It's our first year together. 
I'm declaring it fourteen minutes before it's official.

You knew how to make me clay in Your hands when my heart was stiff and uncompliant, and You know how to fix my heart when it doesn't know what it needs because You are God.

I am Yours, theoretically, but I want to know what it is to become wholly Yours.

Lord, I want to start this journey with You. I don't know what the ideal beginning is, but I want to be real. I want to be Yours.

I want this to be realer and clearer than any picture I could paint or any story I could write. I want to be completely Yours and feel the way Adam and Eve did with You- to be totally comfortable walking nude in the crisp spring morning. 

I want everything You want to give me.

Please.

College Rules: the new rules for school

This book helped change the way I saw academics, and changed my grades for the better. 

As a second-year student who read this going into freshman year, this book has become a manual for me. It's the first and only college advice book I read as I started college. 

Knowing the book was written by two experienced professors and researchers who've spoken and taught hundreds of students made me feel confident that the advice in this book was legit, and "in the know" advice only professors would have. I enjoyed reading it, as it really felt like I was having a conversation with the authors. It in no way felt like I was being "talked at". So grateful that Jesus sent this book--out of all the college preparedness books out there--for me. 

In my two years of college, I have made Dean's List every semester, partly due to the advice on how to study found in this book. I keep it permanently on my bookshelf as a reference in case I need a little refresher on how to ha…

The Importance of Having a Vision Board

Life gets hard.

That's no secret, and sometimes even a message by Joel Osteen won't get you up out of your dump. I don't know about you, but I find when the 'storms' have stopped for awhile, God's giving me time to restock my spirit before the storm starts again. Just like it says in Psalm 91- "You're my refuge. I trust in you and I'm safe!" For me to really feel strong and secure in my faith in Jesus (that He will deliver my from the traps of the enemy), I have to pull out ALL the stops. This time, I'm highlighting the imperative importance of having a vision board right in front of you.







google.images.com Above are examples of vision boards. The reason I don't say 'dream' is because Jesus is your Dream, not whatever earthly things placed on the board. I say 'vision', because these inspire you to keep going, while also planting a seed of belief inside that the images you see WILL come to pass.

{Christian Book Review}: The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn

The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn is a book focused on lost and found, adventure, and romance.

Tamsen Littlejohn finds herself in a desperate position as her stepfather and suitor team up to find her...and her only resort is to head into the deep unknown with Jesse Bird, a white man raised Native American.
Tamsen, born into a life of privilege and honor, finds herself challenged in new ways: not only abandoning her charmed life, but also getting comfortable around this skillful, strong man who seems to have no problem taking care of her. This forced alliance slowly turns into a love Tamsen never could've imagined for herself. But can Tamsen and Jesse forge a new life together in hiding? Will God help them through?

Benton answers these questions perfectly.

I enjoyed this book immensely. Benton has a way of anticipating the reader, and making every scene interesting without it seeming tediously long. This novel is 378 pages, and surprisingly very thick, which kept me entertained duri…
