Take this entry more like a reflection than a life lesson. Haha, I say "life lesson" as if I am knowledgeable and worthy of giving advice. Being brave enough to schedule a dentist appointment does not suddenly make you wise enough to give "adult advice", Kira! Gaahhhh! Where was I? Oh yeah! Take this post … Continue reading Remarkable beauty through my singleness.
I strongly hesitate as I type this. The awkward and uncalled for guilt and shame tells me not to share this. Here's the thing, 2020 was shockingly an amazing year for me. Now I write knowing that 2020 was horrendous, discouraging, excruciating, and unbearable to most. I write this acknowledging the pain, heartbreak, and despair … Continue reading 2020 might’ve been the best year so far.
Or in other words, here is a portion of my testimony and my mission. I created my blog in 2017 and I do not know why it has taken so long to write something like this. The more I contemplate the timing of this post, the more grateful I am that I waited this long. … Continue reading Where my heart, soul, and mind lie: who I am and what I am trying to do.
I firmly believe the nerdiest nerdy thing a Jesus-loving nerd could say is I love seeing the biblical narrative play out in everything. Movies, TV shows, books, and anything you think is far from the bible is not nearly as far as you think. Doctor Strange, Frankenstein, Les Misérables, Harry Potter are a few forms … Continue reading “You will never be satisfied.”
That's my Sunday. That's been my Sunday for the last three to four weeks now, but that all depends on when I decide to actually make this post public. It has not always landed on a Sunday but I try to fast for sixteen hours, one of the days of the week. I usually stop … Continue reading 16 Hours Without Food
"13 When all has been heard, the conclusion of the matter is this: fear God and keep his commands, because this is for all humanity. 14 For God will bring every act to judgment, including every hidden thing, whether good or evil." Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 Now, I know I started with a Bible verse, but my friend who does … Continue reading Following Commandments Have Never Been Easy.
Maybe this is mostly because I am enamored with logic, truth and reason. Maybe this is because I have been accused of being emotionless. Maybe it's the combination but I thoroughly dislike the "you do you" or "do what makes you happy" movement. Movement...is that what you would call it? Lifestyle, maybe? Regardless, I absolutely … Continue reading “Do What Makes You hAPpY”
Is that too long of a title? I don't know, probably, but you did click on it so it must have caught your eye enough to some regard. Anyway, in the midst of the quarantine, I worked at one of the Amazon warehouses for a little less than three months and if any of your … Continue reading I Spent the Summer Working at an Amazon Warehouse
"In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did whatever seemed right to him." Judges 21:25 Spoiler alert, that is the last line from the book of Judges. Skeptical friends, you want to read a disturbing book of the Bible. Read the book of Judges. I hear this question thrown around a lot. … Continue reading Everyone Does What’s Right in Their Own Eyes.
That is the question I've been thinking about for about a week now. Am I truly and wholeheartedly in love with Jesus? My skeptical friend, please don't stop reading now. I promise you it's not this weird and worldly idea of "in love", it's similar to the way you love a parent but like that … Continue reading Am I Madly in Love with Jesus?
