Life Update + Things I've Learned

Hi friends!

     I am soooo behind here.  I apologize to the 2.5 people who check my blog daily!  I'll be honest, I have no good excuse for not writing in the last two weeks.  No worries, my ramblings have officially returned!

     Here's a quick life update for ya!  I'm currently in my last semester of college which is....FREAKY (to say the least).  My roommates have been super into making smoothies lately!  Specifically smoothies that include kale!  My precious Momma recently sent (aka bought) me a pair of cowboy boots, unannounced.  Isn't she just a doll?!  I'm still not certain what I'm doing with my life...but who is, ya know?



Moving onto some Jesus...

     I'm currently reading a Beth Moore book called "Praying God's Word".  It's been great so far.  She basically writes for a few pages and then gives about 15-20 pages of just scripture laden prayer.  It's been awesome to learn what it actually looks like to pray scripture and then be able to live it out in my own prayer life.  I love praying scripture because I am confident what I'm praying is what God promised me in His Word.  Here are some things I've highlighted lately.

"As we pray the Word of God acknowledging His limitless strength and transcendent dominion, Truth will begin to eclipse the lies." 
"Why does God allow us to spend so much of life in the heat of the battle?  Because He Never meant for us to sip His Spirit like a proper cup of tea.  He meant for us to hold our sweating heads over the fountain and lap up His life with unquenchable thirst." 
"You are defined by the love and acceptance of the Creator and Sustainer of the universe." 
"Now if we are children, then we are heirs--heirs of Yours and coheirs with Christ, if indeed we share in His sufferings in order that we may also share in His glory.  Help me to really embrace the truth that any present sufferings I encounter are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in me." (Based in Romans 8:16-18)
   
     If you're interested here is a link to buy the book on Amazon!  Or you can find it in your local Christian bookstore.

Happy Friday, friends!

  1. Last semester of college is SO EXCITING and SO SCARY!!! Congrats on reaching this point, it's not always easy! I hope you figure out what you want to do in life…but if it makes you feel any better, I'm in my last year of my 20s and I just now feel like I'm figuring it out :) Oh, and what a sweet mom!
