Stay Tuned

Why do we run inside when it's raining? Not when it's storming, but when it's simply raining a little? Today has been what most people would call "gloomy." It's been raining since noon and when I say raining, I mean raining.  But I love it. I have always enjoyed walking in the rain. During the summer…

Day Thirteen

Love God and love others. Two of the basic necessities of being a christian. I classify them as necessities but they aren't just necessities, they are requirements. But what if you struggle with one of these? What if you struggle with both? There have been moments in my life where I have struggled with one…

Day Twelve

I have found myself in a place of deep thought. I am deeper in thought than the average day. Prior to being immersed in thought, I was in a state of denial about the way I am living. Living in a city surrounded by oblivious people can be hard. To live outside of this world…

Day Eleven

I'm sitting here, in the cafeteria of my college wondering something. Do I enjoy being alone or does it bother me? For almost every single meal I have had, I’ve been practicing solitude. What's been happening for the past couple of weeks is, I have been choosing to sit by myself in the Cafeteria and…

Day Ten

I MADE IT! I made it to day ten!! Never thought I'd see it, wow. Would have never thought I'd be doing a thirty day prayer challenge at 20-something years old but that's exactly what I'm doing and boy it has taught me a lot. Weird how life works. Anyways, todays challenge seemed fitting to…

Day Nine

"I am with you always, to the very end of the age." I don't know how else to explain it but this verse keeps coming back into my life. I have stated it before but I believe everything happens for a reason and that there are no coincidences with God. Yesterday, day eight, I was…

Day Eight

I went to the gym to bike. I've been trying to strengthen my legs as much as possible for the marathon in October. I haven't started running yet because I have a bad ankle but biking helps. I decided to bike for thirty minutes, I usually do twenty. My shoes are broken in but kept…

Day Seven

Silence.   "Feeling low, feeling high, feeling down, why isn't this enough?" Words from a song that I happen to enjoy. The band is The Head and the Heart. If you're looking for new music, I recommend them. today the practice was to be silent. My challenge was to be silent. Verbally glorifying God whenever you speak.…

Day Six

Today's challenge: Expectations. I loved this challenge. It helped me in many different ways. The idea was to analyze the expectations that occur inside your heart. Not only did I analyze my expectations but I thought about when things don't go as expected. I can so quickly turn to belly aching and complaining. The author…

Day Five

Today's challenge proved to be a real challenge. Spiritual warfare... Honestly, I didn't want to write this post. That's why it's a day off. Day five hurt my heart so much. It started out so simple, so easy, I felt okay. I was thinking about the concept of spiritual warfare and I was reflecting back…
