My Love

So I’ve been wanting to write a blog lately about someone who is very, very special to me. This person is my amazing and caring boyfriend, Bryce. Bryce has literally changed my life for the better and has turned my perspective on life upside down.

Bryce and I met on Labor Day weekend, during a church camping trip. We didn’t really even talk that much during the trip, but we were with a group of people and we had a blast at beaches, bonfires, and late night card games. On the last night of our camping trip, Bryce and I stargazed together. In fact, I saw my first shooting star with him. This is really cheesy, but after that shooting star I literally fell in love with him.

Over the next few weeks, me and Bryce started texting a lot and really got to know each other. We hung out at church and things like that, and let me tell ya, I was totally thrilled when he sat by ME during the Sunday morning services. I was smitten over this guy who I’d been going to church with for two whole years and I never even noticed him before! Crazy, right?

Anyways, I didn’t know Bryce that well, so I for sure proceeded the relationship with caution. I didn’t want my heart broken by a boy I had just met! Anyways, I decided that if Bryce really liked me, Bryce would chase after me like crazy. And surprisingly, he did! He never gave up and kept chasing after me until I finally let my guards down.

When I let them down, a relationship began to build up. This boy liked me so much that he even drove TWO hours to watch my volleyball sectional. I seriously began to totally fall for him.

So, that’s kinda where things began, and things between us have been growing so much. It would seriously take me so long to write everything that has happened between us the past three months, so there’s how it began.

Bryce has changed me. He has been my constant rock, my best friend, and love all in one. When everything else fell apart in life, Bryce was always there to comfort me. He makes me feel beautiful, he makes me feel worthy, and he makes me feel like everything I do is important.

Bryce tells me that he wants to love me like Jesus loves me. And though no one is perfect, I know that he is doing an amazing job so far.

And maybe that’s what love is. It’s two people falling together at a time totally unexpected. It’s two people who have broken pasts looking past the imperfections and seeing beauty in the brokenness. It’s waking up at 4 am just to tell the other person good morning, and going to bed at midnight because the other can’t sleep. It’s about growing up together, and supporting the other person no matter what.

Bryce and I have only known each other for three months, but I’ve never met anyone like him. We’ve never argued, he’s never made me cry, and he’s never made me feel like my ambitions or ideas are impossible. He makes me feel like I have wings and that I can fly through life.

So here’s my advice to you- wait for your Bryce. Wait for the boy who will send you packages in the mail just because, or tell you that he’s praying for you. I promise you he’s out there. Just let God bring him to you, and things will be so perfect that you’ll wonder why you ever thought there was anyone else for you. God will bring someone who is your support system and your best friend. Someone who you can laugh with, talk about God with, and cry with. Bryce truly brings out the best in me, and I can’t wait to see what our future holds.

I can’t wait for the many more Sunday mornings we will share together, or our coffee dates, or our talks with my mom. He brings me good books, he takes me to goodwill, and he comes over every single chance he gets. It’s truly the little things that mean the most. I hope you all have a great morning and remember to wait for the one God has meant to be in your life during a certain time ❤️🤗

His Will in the Works

It’s time for another blog!

This time, I wanna talk about truly following God’s will for our lives!

For about three months, I have been praying so hard that God will work in my life in a way that glorifies Him, not me. I prayed long and hard for His will to be done, no matter how much it hurt me. I knew that He had a greater plan and a greater purpose for me.

However, following God’s path isn’t always a walk in the park. Sometimes, God is gonna take you through a rainstorm just to get to some shelter. You just have to look UP. Don’t focus on worldly things. Who cares about what other people think about you? Push aside your human emotions and desires to focus on the one whom your soul LOVES.

Sometimes, living the life God made for you isn’t always easy, and just because it is the life you are living, doesn’t mean that it’s about you. Our lives are not about us at all. Our lives are made to share the gospel and the love of Jesus to everyone we can.

This month, I’ve been trying so hard to humble myself. To follow his path and give myself up to glorify Him. It has not been easy, and it’s never going to be easy. But when we someday enter the gates of Heaven, it will be so worth it to look into Jesus’s eyes and see Him smiling back at us.

Submitting to the Lord for me is creating a father- daughter relationship. It’s about finding the calm to your storm and throwing your hands up in the air asking God what in the world he wants you to do.

God IS working in my life. The closer I’ve begun to follow him, the more trials I have gone through. Let me tell y’all, life has been ROUGH. But my God has brought me some wonderful people and some wonderful things that really have helped me through this life so far! Even though things have been hard, I wouldn’t want them any other way. I’ll follow whatever God wants me to do!

Another thing I wanna talk about is our sins. For such a long time, I was held back by my sins. Sometimes, I still am. But we serve a God who has a boundless mercy and forgives us no matter what we did. Don’t let your sin keep you from growing in your faith, instead, repent and use it to become stronger. Don’t give up on your God or your faith. Don’t let other people tell you that you aren’t good enough to follow Him or share His word.

Sometimes, it is hard to see, but God brings hurt into our lives and breaks things that we think are so good and fun. He breaks them apart so he can open us to new opportunities in our lives, into things so great that we can’t even comprehend. When God does this, we don’t always know WHY. But we can rest in the fact that God’s plan is ALWAYS good. God has shown me this when I decided to go to my school only half day! I was just having a really rough year overall, and I decided I couldn’t do full day anymore. So, since I only went half day, I found some volunteer work that I can do in a much needed place! God used ME to fill a spot that people have been praying to be filled! I’m so thankful that I can help out in a place that needed it!

I know this blog was a little scattered ( as usual ) but I just wanted to encourage some of you tonight! Have an awesome week! 🤗
