God Is There

The other day, I read an article about Mother Teresa. It included a quote from her, writing of her struggle with depression: The loneliness of the heart that wants love is unbearable. – Where is my faith? – Even deep down, right in, there is nothing but emptiness & darkness…. I am told God loves…

Romans 10:14 Essay | How Shall They Hear?

I wrote this essay last week as a school assignment. We had to choose a Bible verse and write what it meant to us and what commentators said about it. I hope it is a blessing to you! Romans 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how…

Love at Christmas

During the Christmas season, love is emphasized, whether you are a Christian or not. In Christmas specials, movies, music, books, and activities, love is often the focus. However, during this season, people (myself included) often get too busy and stressed to truly love those around them. This is my commandment, That ye love one another,…

Happy Thanksgiving

​Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with…

Bring Joy

I’ve noticed that when someone around me is unhappy, it’s so easy to let that person’s attitude bring me down. That doesn’t end well, because if everyone gets upset, everyone ends up irritating one another. Then, just because one person was in a bad mood, suddenly all those around that person are in a bad…

Just Wait

One thing I’ve realized about myself lately is that I am impatient with God. I was listening to a message about Moses, and I had forgotten about part of his story – he waited eighty years before God called him to save his people from the Egyptians. If you don’t remember, Moses was an Israelite…

Lazarus Sat with Him

If you didn’t see my first post in the short series about this story, go check it out! Lazarus is the next person I’m going to write about from this biblical scene. Then Jesus six days before the passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead. There they…

Pray with Me

God gave me someone unexpected to share Jesus’ love with. A fellow (non-Christian) blogger contacted me after I left a comment on one of his posts. He said he had been struggling with suicidal thoughts and was curious about God. We have been in contact for a few months, and he has been asking good…

And Martha Served

This morning, I read the story of Mary anointing Jesus with her precious spikenard. It inspired me to do a deeper dive into what some of the people in the story were experiencing. I’ll try to cover everyone mentioned in the passage over my next few posts. First of all, the only gospel that even…

Prayers Are Answered

This morning in my driver’s ed class, I was studying with one of my friends. We were quizzing each other on homework questions, and we began to tell stories about car accidents we had been in. I told him about an accident I had been in (my mom wrote a post about it on her blog, My Way…
