I pray that as you read this your eyes are opened. That you will understand why you should move on or even why someone else is moving away from you. That you cherish every relationship you have for what it is and and what it isn’t. Learn to embrace all of God’s promises for your life. Seasons change, and its true, that you just may have to leave the past in the past. God loves you more than you could ever imagine. Know that.
There comes a time in our lives, maybe multiple times, where we will have to move away from what is not working for us. We have to learn to leave the past in the past.As Christians we are set apartClick To Tweet
I wanted to write this because it is important that we realize, as Christians, that we are SET APART. We don’t have to follow everyone else. Better yet God doesn’t want us to be like everyone else. This can be especially hard when you are in college. You want to be connected with the rest of your campus. But God calls for us to be a light on our campuses. He wants for us to spread His love to all people. We wont do it perfectly, God knows that. We’re sinners. He will be there to pick us up when we fall.
Over the past nine months, the length of time I’ve had my blog, I have changed soo much. I have grown a lot closer to God and my relationship with Him has deepened more than I could have ever imagined. So, I wanted to share a journal entry that I made not to long ago.
So here goes:
stand for what you believe inClick To Tweet
I’m not going to apologize even though it was my initial thought. You found me at a time of self exploration. Now that time is gone and I have found myself. I am more in tune with myself than I ever have been before. I have also come out of this past season closer to God than I ever have been before.
So let me say this. My spiritual journey is my own and not for your understanding. You cant understand where God is taking me; that is for me and God.
Im writing this to say that what we have just may not last forever. And honestly, I’m okay with that. God is going to take me places that I have never EVER imagined.
So its up to you whether you want to journey with me — or not. I can’t make you change your life.— It’s up to you, whether or not you want to go on a similar journey as me. God wants to use you for His work in the kingdom. All you have to do is answer yes or no.
Know this too. Whether you say yes or no in your own journey… I am going to keep moving in my own. Because I have said yes.
All this to say. Stand for what you believe in.
I believe that God is going to use me in ways that I can’t imagine. While people I know may think that going out to a party is still fun. I’d rather sit and blog. Or learn more about the amazing bloggers I’ve gotten to collab with and just talk with in general. *y’all I’m crying as I write this*
I can’t be that “typical college student.” I don’t want to be the typical college student. I want for God to be the center of my life. I want my life to be a reflection of Him. I want for people to see Jesus in me. I want for His love, mercy, grace to be the forerunner of my life
I believe that God doesn’t let any more than what we can handle interfere in our lives. Then He says “come back to me.”no one else can believe for youClick To Tweet
You have to believe. No one else can believe for you. You have to accept what God has for your life. It’s not going to be easy at all. Because if it were easy then any one could do anything.
This is when you have to decide. When you agree to follow God and let Him lead you, don’t regret what you did in the past. Your past propels you into your future. Your past will also help you, help others.
So now that I’ve got that all out. I’m in a period of waiting. Honestly though I’ve been waiting for a while. By a while, I mean a couple years. I’m not trying to whine about my life. I love my life and I cherish every moment. I am simply waiting for those people that truly understand what its like to have a creative heart. For now, I will continue to be a joyful as I have been.
In this very moment I am super thankful for these two girls. They may not realize it, but I am truly thankful for their creativity and genuineness. They are both extremely beautiful humans and I’m so happy to have met them

Lastly I want to refer everyone to Amanda’s post on Periods of Waiting.
Its soo good! She calls it how it is and talks bout how we can let the devil take away God’s plans for our lives, if we’re not paying attention. We let him interfere, instead of God. Definitely give it a read!!
13 although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. 14 And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. 1 Timothy 1:13-14 New King James Version (NKJV)
