Here With You

Today I feel inspired to share a song. I am absolutely head over heels with this song, and it’s been on my heart since the first time I heard it. Please enjoy the lyrics and the power behind those words. Also, can I just say that some people have anointed voices? The person who sang this song is one of those. When I first heard this song, I was writing an article at work and absentmindedly listening to the new Hillsong album. After about one minute when this song came on, I was so moved that I had to stop writing and pay rapt attention to the song. It’s such a comforting song. When God is with us, we have heaven within us. I will never be without God because He will never leave me. As much as I want to remain a captive in God’s love, I know that no matter how far I run, He will literally always chase me down and bring me back home! If that’s not mindblowing, then I don’t know …

…and who do you think you are?

Once upon a time, something happened. And I got upset. I got upset because I felt like I tried so hard and do all I could to serve God and to do His will (although I often fail terribly). So why, I thought, did all that happen to me? Why didn’t He warn me earlier, why did He watch me fall into the trap again? It was the same story of someone doing something, or I doing something, falling short, then feeling bad, getting upset, and finally asking “Oh Lord, why didn’t you warn me ahead of time? Why did you not also prevent me from this? Why do you not help me?” But that day, just as I was about to launch a big, annoying rant about how God is good to other people and bla bla bla, something in my heart told me to shut my mouth. A little detour. I find it very difficult sharing the struggles I face in my spiritual life, as I often fail in extremely embarrassing and shameful ways. But it always occurs to me that my mistake could be …

I Have an Infatuation!

The word of God is described using several metaphors. It is a double edged sword, it is fire and it is a hammer that can break a rock in pieces. The Bible admonishes us to keep the Word of God always on our lips, and to meditate upon it day and night. Since we cannot meditate on something we do not know, we are required to literally devour our Bibles– eat, chew, digest the word of God. Let it live and breathe in you and watch God do wonders in your life. Without further ado, here is some scripture that is currently rocking my world: Seest thou a man diligent in his work, he will stand before kings and not mean men. Proverbs 22:29 This proverb reminds us of the blessings of diligence. The Lord loves those who work hard to multiply the gifts and talents He has blessed them with. This is especially comforting to students as excellence in school work demands exceptional motivation. Hold fast friend! You will stand before kings, you will be the envy of nations, you will be …

He’s still God in the bad times!

I heard this song for the first time two days ago at Daughters of Zion– our Christian fellowship group on campus. The song spoke volumes to my heart, and I’m sharing since I’m on this encouragement roll right now! See here and here. God On the Mountain (Lynda Randle) Life is easy, when you’re up on the mountain And you’ve got peace of mind, like you’ve never known. But things change, when you’re down in the valley. Don’t lose faith, for you’re never alone. For the God on the mountain, is the God in the valley. When things go wrong, He’ll make them right. And the God of the good times is still God in the bad times. The God of the day is still God in the night. We talk of faith way up on the mountain. Talk comes so easy when life’s at its best. Now down in the valleys, of trials and temptations That’s where your faith, is really put to the test. For the God on the mountain is the God in the …

Three Things

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well. Fellow East Coast people, I hope the snow isn’t too depressing! For today, I would like to share three things that have been on my mind for a while- emotional pain, blogging, and 50 Shades of Grey. 1. Moriah– I started a blog when I turned 18 two years ago. Somewhere along the line, I became convicted that I wasn’t ready to blog, so I deleted the site. That’s how serious I have always intended to take a blog whenever I did start one. Barely a month into launching this new blog, I am already running out of ideas.
