and somehow, we find acceptance

rejection is an acceptance. an acceptance into who you were meant to be. an invitation to step into the embodiment of the space you were created to fill. an ushering in of something beautiful. I promise you this: you can leverage pain into passion. you can leverage loneliness into love. you can leverage rejection into acceptance,Continue reading “and somehow, we find acceptance”

what economics and opportunity costs taught me about Jesus

I’m in my second semester of economics at FSU. Micro and Macro have been two of my favorite courses so far. One of the biggest concepts hammered into my head is the term ‘opportunity cost.’ My professor makes it a point to always make sure the definition is clear. “The opportunity cost is the valueContinue reading “what economics and opportunity costs taught me about Jesus”

passion 2017.

  Passion was incredible. I’ve never experienced anything like it. There’s a lot that I don’t want to forget from those few days. & so I’m writing them here so I can always go back and  read them over and over.

Retreat

how Jesus offers more than your lesser loves

We’re all running around in circles chasing these silly little pursuits and I can imagine God just shaking His head and laughing a little. Laughing at how slow it takes us to learn. Chuckling a little at our stubborn hearts that think they know best. He knows our hearts are so prone to wander intoContinue reading “how Jesus offers more than your lesser loves”

you don’t have to know it all

Sometimes we carry burdens that were never intended for us to carry. We carry the weight of trying to figure out why God has us where He does. We shoulder burdens of wonder. Wondering where we’ll be tomorrow, or why we’re here today. This is for all of us who ever wondered why, and whoContinue reading “you don’t have to know it all”

a word to the broken

Dear broken heart; broken by the words someone said. Broken by someone’s opinion. Broken because someone who was close isn’t close anymore. Broken because that loved one who in your mind had 50 years left to live– broken cause they’re gone. Broken because turning on the news today can break you down like that. Broken forContinue reading “a word to the broken”
