Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.

– George Addair

I saw this quote recently and it’s become one of my favorite inspirations to remind myself of whenever I fall into worry or anxiety about my circumstances.

I’m writing a longer post about fear that I’ll put out later this week, but for now, just think about that statement. Really let it sink in. Then go and be victorious in everything you do the rest of the week.

It’s amazing what you can do when fear is no longer a factor.

Easter: The Culmination of the Greatest Life

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Last weekend my family got together with some friends for a group reading of the gospel of Mark. I had never done anything like that before, so it was a new and amazing experience. There’s something undeniably moving and enthralling about taking in the entire story of Jesus’ earthly life in one sitting, especially being involved in reading it and hearing it read out loud among other brothers and sisters in Christ.

It left me with a fresh perspective of the significance of Easter and put me in a positive and anticipatory mood for the upcoming Easter weekend and the Passion week we are currently in.

And it makes me wonder why we don’t give it a serious month or two to celebrate it like we do for Christmas, because Easter is so much grander in scope than any other holiday, even Christmas. Continue reading

Quote of the Week | The Greatest Quote Book

“For you are the fountain of life, the light by which we see.”

Psalm 36:9 (NLT)

I don’t normally post a quote from the Bible as my quote of the week, but you’ve got to admit, it’s pretty much the greatest quote book on the planet. Written by the Creator of the universe. So yeah, I’d say He’s probably worth listening to.

This is just some plain, pure truth from God.

He is the fountain of life, the light by which we live and understand. He’s the source of our everything. Without Him, we are nothing.

Quote of the Week | It’s Not What, But How

“Wherever God has put you, that is your vocation. It is not what we do, but how much love we put into it.”

~ Mother Teresa

Recently I’ve been struggling with knowing what it is God wants me to be and do. I haven’t been feeling particularly useful or that my daily life is ultimately worth while in the situation I am in currently.

8 Reasons Why Books are Better Than Movies

1. Because you can pick them up and take them with you anywhere.

Books are usually small and compact and can fit into a purse, bag, or even a pocket in some cases; movies are . . . well, much more complicated to transport, watch, and enjoy (though with hand-held devices and the rising movie streaming services, that might not be much of an issue anymore).

Quote of the Week | Too Much?

brain-ideas

Well, this last week has been pretty busy, with a lot of things distracting me from blogging, hence the lack of posts last week. I have a few longer posts in the works, but here’s some food for thought while you’re waiting, to help keep those brain gears from getting rusty.

You can never be overdressed or overeducated.

~ Oscar Wilde

I randomly saw this quote in a store recently, and I’m not sure if I agree with it or not.

My thinking is going something like this: Well, you probably shouldn’t go kayaking in an evening gown, am I right? And you know, too much learning does have the potential to fry the brain…at least that’s what I thought in college.

But maybe I’m not totally grasping his point. Or I could be overthinking it.

So, what do you think? I’d love to hear your opinion in the comments section.

A Look Into Why I Believe Following God is the Only Way

A couple weeks ago I posted a list that I made of God’s promises and truths about various issues, which has sort of led to this follow-up post.

While writing out that post, I started thinking, “What if there’s someone out there who isn’t even sure if they can trust God and His promises about life? I mean, what if they are reading about this list of scripture promises and they don’t even bother to check it out because they don’t care about, believe in, or trust the Person behind those words?”

So if that sort of describes you, then these are my thoughts for you.

This is a look into my perspective on God, why I believe in Him and His control over my life despite the hardships, confusion, uncertainties, and disappointments I’ve encountered. Continue reading

Valentine’s Day, Singleness, True Love, and a Little History

I know what you’re thinking, but I’m not planning on writing another one of those posts about Valentine’s Day and true love and being content as a single person. That would just be cliche upon cliche. Plenty of those kinds of inspirational articles exist already.

Not that it’s not a good topic to think about–I mean, it is important to be content as a single person even on Valentine’s Day when you’re dreaming about your true love and everything.

List of God's Promises on Various Issues - PDF Download

Hey everyone!

A few months ago, I wrote a post on how God loves and accepts you for who you are, and that because of that, we can love and accept ourselves no matter what lies the devil is throwing at us. I mentioned that I took the bulk of that post from the notes for my cabin devotions that I gave over the past summer. Continue reading
