Your peace which surpasses all understanding…

The craziness of the semester has come to a hilt for me. This week has been the very essence of scrambling around trying to get everything done, turned in, and checked off my list. However, despite the stress, God has been making his blessings yet again evident to me and is continuing to give me his peace. So thankful for what he allowed me to experience and be a part of this week. This last weekend there was a Nazarene youth conference called Breakaway here on campus. Nazarene youth groups from the Kansas City area joined together in College Church for a night of worship,[…]

Breathe….

I know life is crazy for me! Ups, downs, and every other possible direction! Sometimes, you just have to sit back and take in what God has to offer. When life gets busy and school gets psychotic, and everything becomes a blur, just remember to BREATHE. I mean look at the top picture, how does that not create awe? Everything is perfectly designed by God, in this picture and within us. Make time for Him and find Him in every facet of life! You just have to empty your hands so He can fill them. Even when you do this,[…]

Election Week

It feels like the longest week in the history of my life. The elephant on the blog is the presidential election this week. This was my first year to vote, and I feel like an adult officially! To remind us to vote, Professor Ford wore a Romney mask to class on Monday. He said he went to Wal-Mart for marked-down Halloween items. He wanted both a Romney and an Obama mask, but they sold out of Obama faces. He then suggested someone in a Stats class see if there is a correlation between masks sold on Halloween to which candidate[…]

God Loves Us All: Even the Discouraged

Discouragement: A loss of confidence or enthusiasm; despiritedness An attempt to prevent something by showing disapproval or creating difficulties; deterrent   Why do we deal with discouragement so much?  Why does there always have to be something in the way?  Why does life have to be so hard?  These are questions I hear people ask every day.  There’s so many things in life that discourage us, as humans, that we can’t seem to avoid: death, failure, loss of friends, an abrupt change in plans.  Why does it seem that after we just get out of a bad time, and we[…]

The one with the epiphany.

For the past week I have livin it up in Frankfurt. As soon as I got off the train I knew I was going to like it there. And I was right. I absolutely loved this week! I learned many things about myself and God revealed so much to me about personal areas of my life as well as my future plans-His plans. We worked with Chris Zimmerman. Some of you might/should remember him speaking there at MNU earlier this semester. Well I am just gonna let my little notes about this whole experience speak for themselves. Ready. Set. Go. *Our vision is Heaven on[…]

What’s Your Puzzle Piece?

Connecting with God. How do you define it? Some say quiet time, talking with others, finding Him in the word. These are ALL useful and creative puzzle pieces of discerning God’s voice, but some are more effective than others for different people. If you are more extroverted then quite time, though still necessary, is a  more evasive device and talking with others is more preferred. This would be likely reversed for introverts. However you spin it, these are all, I would say necessary, forms of worshiping God. This weekend I had the opportunity to travel with my fellow improvisational teammates […]

Cafe con Leche

This is my life!! Can I just tell you how many hours of sleep I’ve gotten this week? Maybe like 3 total every night. Some wise person once said that you can choose 2 of the following: Good grades, a social life, or sleep. Don’t get me wrong, sleeping is one of my favorite activities. It seems like I have intentions every night to be in bed by midnight. Rarely does this happen, and the nights that it does, I’m up thinking about all the things I need to do until 2 or 3 am. The point of this story[…]
