What Disappointment Taught Me About Dreaming Big

I felt a twinge of jealousy crawling up my spine as I stared at the words on my computer screen. I couldn’t believe what I was reading. A friend of mine had just received her very first book contract. Why hadn’t I received a book contract? I just couldn’t figure out what I was missing. Was I not doing enough? Was it simply not the right time for me to be a published author? Would it ever be the right time? How many articles and blog posts did I have to write until it was the right time? And then I began to realize the truth of the matter.

Why Jesus is More Than the Light at the End of the Tunnel

The world says there is light at the end of the tunnel. It promises that happiness will come. It tries to offer help by saying, “Everything is going to be okay.” But how does the world know that? It cannot guarantee such a declaration. It has no idea what lies ahead for us. How dare it try to offer us such hopeless hope in our pain. However, Christianity is different.

Letting Go of My To-Do List Life

The to-do list is never ending. I feel you. There’s always more to do. As soon as you feel satisfied because you finished a big job, you realize there are six more “big jobs” to do. Isn’t every job a big job? Why can’t a task take five minutes instead of five hours? I don’t have the perfect solution to make your life less hectic, but I might have a reason why we’re so busy.

In the Meantime…Filling up Your Calendar

Recently I posted about how we need to let go of our calendar lives and wait on God’s timing to know what the future holds. However, there are some things you can do while you’re waiting for God to show you what’s next. Here’s a simple list of things a young adult can do to figure out what’s next...

Letting Go of My Calendar Life

I need a list of things in my life that are set in stone. And this dependence is a natural thing, but it’s not a good thing. The calendar is constantly changing. Events get cancelled and added.
