Vacationing in Virginia 2017

152277c9-5050-40f3-b6da-ccfd92a0bffe

Hey everyone! So as I told you a couple of blogs ago, I am going to be writing a blog all about my trip to Virginia. Even though it isn’t over yet, I still wanna talk about it now.

So I have never visited Virginia before, and it is seriously blowing me away. It is so cozy and the houses are beautiful. There are so many horses and wooded areas. The weather is about twenty degrees warmer than Indiana, and that makes me really elated haha! I love it so much, and hopefully I can be back here in a couple of years for college.

While here, Sierra and I have done a ton of shopping, bowling, and laughing. We always have so much fun together, and I am so thankful that she brings me on all of her trips. I am also thankful for her family, because through it all, they have became my family too. We all have so many memories together, and my life wouldn’t be as great without them.

At night, we always start off with some dance parties. We then always bowl because why not? I also made some money off of stupid bets, which is pretty great haha! To end the nights we all gather for a movie. It is so great to be able to relax and spend time with friends and family.

Sierra is such a great friend, and we have the best of times whenever we are with each other. She is the only person who has consistently stayed in my life ever since the sixth grade. She’s been there for me whenever I’m having problems with switching schools, making friends, or when I need any advice at all. Most friends will only be in our lives for a few years- time will change things and life will change as well- but there are certain people in life that will never leave. Hold onto them and never let go.

I know this blog is super lighthearted, but I just wanted to share with y’all about my trip! I hope your Christmas break is going as well as mine- Cami

Combating Insecurities

We all know what insecurities are way too well. Weather it’s looking in the mirror and seeing yourself as too fat or too ugly, making a friend delete a picture because you look bad, or wearing a ton of makeup to cover up our pimples, we all have them! Insecurities can totally dictate our lives if we aren’t careful, and they will consume our thoughts more and more everyday.

I struggle so much with insecurities guys! I’m sure everyone else has their insecurities, too. I struggle with thinking my thighs are too big, my ribs are too wide, and my nose is just weird. I know that when people look at me, they probably don’t even notice these things. Everyone just seems to get in their heads about everything, and it honestly makes me so sad.

Remember that no matter what makeup you put on, or how much weight you lose, you will never be content with yourself until you learn to accept and love yourself just the way that you are. The only way to be truly happy with yourself is to work from the inside out. You have to make sure you have the right mindset first, and then everything else will fall into place.

Another thing that really hits me is that when you are looking at yourself and hating what you see or hating your imperfections, you are hating God’s creation. We are made in His image. He made us exactly how we are supposed to be to properly serve our purposes in this World, and that should make us feel pretty content.

Now, here’s a little disclaimer- loving yourself doesn’t mean you are laying on the couch every single day, eating chips, and watching SpongeBob! Loving yourself means that you work out, eat healthy, and take care of your body because you want it to be healthy. As you all probably know, health will always be one of the most important things to me!

Health is about balance. It’s eating clean one day and then going out to a nice dinner with your family. It’s waking up early and exercising on Monday, and then sleeping in late on Tuesday because your body is tired. Just because we are trying to achieve that healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean we can’t occasionally indulge in the simple pleasures life has to offer!

In my life, insecurities sometimes totally take over. When I’m feeling sad or insecure, I’ve found that prayer is what helps me the most. Flattery or compliments are nice sometimes, but the security that God brings is a much more comforting thing than compliments from another person. If you have insecurities, it’s okay! Remember that no one is perfect, and everyone else has them too. 1 Samuel 16:17 tells us this :

But the Lord said to Samuel, ” Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outer appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”  

This verse comforts me so deeply, and I hope it will comfort you too! Lets all work on the beauty from the inside!! – Cami

Wait… clothes can be an idol?

Good morning!! This post is going to be geared towards the wonderful ladies who read my blogs! So, probably from eighth grade to the end of freshman year, I had a huge problem with idolizing clothes! I would always buy new clothes all of  the time. It was seriously the only thing I would ever spend my money on, which is totally crazy. I was obsessed with picking out my outfits the night before school, and I would seriously spend more time on deciding an outfit than I would on my schoolwork, which is not good!

I feel like there has to be some other girls out there who struggle with this, so I wanted to make this blog. I think for girls it is really hard to get out of the trap of materialism. For me, I just wanted to fit in and make myself seem like I was better than everyone. This really showed how insecure I was!

This year, I really don’t care at all how I look, like at all haha! School is for learning, not for looking like you’re ready to go to a wedding! I think my style has also changed a lot into more of a minimalistic style. I really only like to wear denim, black, gray, white, and the occasional maroon! Having this type of style means I don’t really have a lot of different options when it comes to outfits. This just makes it easier for me to get ready in the morning, which is a huge plus.

Here’s the problem I’m facing now, I have an entire closet full of clothes that I don’t wear! So, I’m thinking about donating basically all of my clothes that I don’t wear or only wear once a year. I know that there are so many people even just in Warsaw that could use some more clothes!

Having idols like being obsessed with clothes makes you feel like you are never good enough. It made me feel like I had to uphold a certain image to be acceptable to other people. The more clothes I had, the more insecure I felt. I just was never satisfied! I always wanted more and more, because it’s in our human nature to be selfish in that way.

I think this showed a immaturity in my faith because it demonstrated that God wasn’t enough for me! I’m so thankful that God opened my eyes to my issue with clothes, and I hope that y’all can learn to have God as your only idol!! God should be the only thing that we truly focus on because we aren’t made for this world, we are made for Him and His glory. Instead of focusing on Worldy things, lets all try to think of ways that we can glorify Him in all that we do!

Also, I’m not trying to say that we should never care about how we look, because it is important to be somewhat presentable sometimes. I’m just saying don’t obsess over it because no one else cares as much as you think they do honestly. There’s also nothing wrong with dressing cute most of the time, you just have to find the perfect balance! Maybe sometime I’ll even do a post including a cute outfit for every day of the week! Have a great day everyone, God bless ~ Cami

The Beauty in Ambition

In life, we often see people who have suchhhh a boring life. They don’t seem to have any real goals or dreams. They simply wake up, go to the job they really don’t like, and then they go home.

This typical and routine lifestyle is one that I am totally, 100% afraid of! Some people ask me why I would be afraid of this, and I can sorta see why. I mean, living a secure and routine life can be very comfortable and easy. BUT I don’t want to live a comfortable and easy life. I want to live a life where I accomplish all of my goals and where I take every risk I possibly can.

In life, I really want to be able to inspire and help others! That’s why I started this blog in the first place… to be heard! I love writing, and it will serve me well in life. I can only pray that my blog will continue to blossom and reach people who I could never reach in real life. Today, I was checking out my stats and realized that my blog has reached over 2,000 different people! Now, 2,000 doesn’t really seem like a big number until you think of it as more than just a number. I like to think of it as me speaking to a crowd of 2,000 different and unique souls. That seriously just blows me away!! So thank you to everyone who has continued to read and support my blog ever since my first one in April!

When I was making my 2018 goals list a couple of weeks ago, I wrote that I wanted to have 5,000 views on my blog by next December… however, considering the net growth that has happened just this month, I think I’m going to go for a extreme number… 20,000 to be exact! I’m for sure going to try my best to continue to put out good content for you all at least three times a week!

So, time for some other goals of mine…

~ I’ve been trying to write a book the past month… and I want to finish it and MAYBE get it published… that’s a big stretch but I am going to be grinding super hard to reach this goal!

~ This year is going to be the year of dedication to fitness for me, this will involve beginning bodybuilding, training for a MARATHON, and trying to become more confident in myself!

~ Another goal is to grow on my social media platforms, simply because that would be awesome. Lets be honest I think everyone wants to get more followers haha!

~ I want to be more adventurous this year. I wanna explore new places and do some new crazy stuff! This year will be all about being spontaneous and doing things that scare me to death.

~ The final goal is of course, to grow with God. I want Him to be my number one motivator for all of this, and all my achievements go to Him because He’s the one who has placed all of this crazy ambition in my heart haha!

So here I am, speaking all of these things into existence. Here we go everyone, lets do this! I hope you all make some crazy goals like me, and then make them happen! If you believe in yourself, you can truly accomplish the wildest of dreams.

I don’t know about all of you reading this, but I feel like I have a big, crazy, and exciting life ahead of me, and I can’t even comprehend what it is holding. Hopefully I’ll be able to do some missions for a while, go to college, write some books, and just inspire others! In life I’ve made it a priority to try and better myself everyday. Some times I fail, but in the long run, it is helping me so much!

Go accomplish all of your dreams and goals starting right now, I believe in you! Who cares if everyone thinks your crazy? The crazy people are the ones who leave an awesome mark in this World!

I wish you all a Merry Christmas! Have a great time celebrating with your families! Remember to surround yourself with people who motivate and encourage you always! Love you all 🙂 xoxo- Cams

🎄Some Of The Best Things About The Holidays🎄

Hey guys! So this whole week I’ve been trying to think of something to blog about, and I’ve totally ran out of ideas!! So I’m gonna try to get some content out tonight ( this morning basically ) and share with you some of the best part about the holidays!

1- Catching up on sleep

After a long semester, it feels so great to just take a step back, breath, and realize that you don’t have any homework or studying to do! Last night I seriously opened up my binder and then realized I had no reason to hahaha! I think that sometimes sleep is soooo underestimated, and it plays a huge role in our health. So make sure to take some extra time to get in all those naps you’ve missed out on the past five months!

2- Yummy food

Honestly during holiday season, I totally throw out my diet and I don’t feel bad about it at all. I wanna be happy on the holidays, and it wouldn’t make me very happy to be eating a salad while everyone else is having cookies and other delicious treats. If you’re eating a little bit crazy like me right now, my advice is to just keep up your water intake and drink about a gallon a day! This will help your system flush out and stay someone detoxed!

3- Giving

One of my favorite parts about Christmas is giving gifts! ( or cards because I’m a sixteen year old without a job ) I love making cute cards for people! The other day at work, some of the fourth graders I work with all made me Christmas cards and it made my heart so happy! Often times, cards mean more than any material gift you could give! And hey, it’s free😉😂 I love giving gifts, it’s just a great way to thank the important people in your life for being so amazing! It also makes me feel so good on the inside, and I hope you feel the same.

4- Family time

Today I got to spend the day with my family at a nice lunch out and a play. It was so much fun to just go out to eat and laugh with them! We also got some ice cream so I was extra happy about that since I’m an ice cream fanatic! Usually during the school year we all get busy with schoolwork, sports, and our social lives, so we don’t get to see our families hardly at all! Make sure to spend the holidays laughing and having fun with them a little extra than usual! You’ll always remember great moments with your family!

I hope y’all have a very Merry Christmas! And hey always remember that God is the reason for the season 😉 blessings and prayers always- Cami

Study Tips!

Hey everyone! So this week, I’m pretty swamped with exams, but I’m still gonna write a couple blogs for y’all! I’m having a really great week, and I hope you’re all having a good week so far too! On the 26th, I’ll be headed down to Virginia with my friend Sierra, so I’ll make a blog about my trip!

Anyways, back to exams. Exams used to stress me out a ton! Like to the point where I was in tears for the whole exam week. Now though, I don’t stress about them at all! ( well except my math one because math is my enemy hahaha ) So I figured that I could give y’all some tips on how to not be stressed for exam week!

1- Don’t procrastinate

This is probably the number one way to prevent yourself from stressing out! When you don’t procrastinate, you feel well prepared for your exams and you actually know the material. When you procrastinate, you often don’t pick up important details and usually don’t score as high! I remember I used to not study until the morning of the exam, and my grades on them were probably 5 points lower than they would’ve been if I had actually studied the day or two before!

2- Set up a good study environment

Sometimes I’ll be scrolling through Instagram or Pinterest, and I’ll see a desk or notebook that is soooo aesthetically pleasing that I just want to study! Try setting up a neat, clean, and cozy space where you can study! I also would recommend lighting a candle or having a cup of coffee or tea next to you so you feel automatically more relaxed! Sometimes people listen to music, but listening to music really makes me unfocused when I’m studying! If you like some sort of noise while you study, try listening to a study ASMR, which you can find on YouTube!

3- Take breaks!

I used to study like an hour at a time, and after an hour, my brain was totally fried! Instead of sitting down and cramming for hours at a time, try taking about a fifteen minute break every hour! That way, your brain will be able to relax and reset for your next study session. Take your fifteen minutes off to get on your phone, read a book, or talk to someone! You could also get a snack or go for a run! Whatever will help you get re-energized!

So, those are my few tips! I’ll be praying that everyone will have a great week before Christmas and that y’all will do well on your exams and stay motivated! 🙂

He is Good

 

Sometimes God breaks us apart so he can make us new. New, beautiful and pure. He is a merciful God. He forgives the deepest and darkest of sins. He transforms us into his disciples, willing to bow down at His altar.

He will slay us, He will ruin every Worldly thing in this life that we love. He does this to direct us. He preaches to us to take comfort in Him and to turn to Him when times are hard. It’s easy to get upset or angry at God and shut him out. It’s simply in our human nature. The past few weeks I’ve really been doing that, and I’ve had to humble myself and ask for forgiveness. I am glad that God reveals our eyes to our own sins. That He continues to soften our hardened hearts as we grow in our faith. I am so thankful that God has broken me, because now He can use me for His glory and put me back together again.

This year has been very hard for me and everything has 100% fallen apart more than I expected it. I’m done trying to be the girl who pretends she has it all together. None of us will ever have it all together. Though I have been so hurt, God is so good, and that is something I can always rejoice in.

He has a plan for me that I cannot even begin to comprehend. All I can do is humble myself and follow His path. Trusting in His Will is hard, but we as Christians need to yield in Him no matter what crazy things are happening in our life. Every heartbreak I have had this year has drawn me closer and closer to Him.

I realized that I used to pretend that my life was perfect. That I had it all together. Perfect friendships, perfect diet, perfect looks, and a perfect faith. But our faith in God is not about us at all, and I think that’s where I went wrong. Our faith is for first of all God of course, but I feel like we often forget that our faith in Jesus is for others to see the light and rejoice in it. We as Christians should never try to put on an image of perfection, because only God is perfect. We have all made mistakes, so don’t try to pretend you are better than anyone else! We are all the same in God’s eyes!!

I’m not a perfect Christian or person by any means, but I’m gonna post this because I want everyone to know that if they have an issue or need advice, I’ll be here! I really want to be here for people because I know how terrible it feels to not have anyone to turn to. My goal is to make my social media a platform of support and faith, and I think my blog can do that! So yeah feel free to message me or DM me if anyone wants to talk about anything! Jesus, clothes, food, I don’t care! I’ll be praying that this blog can change someone’s heart or open someone’s eyes to His goodness!!! Have a great weekend everyone!!!

How to Listen to God

” How do you hear what God is trying to say to you? “

So, this was a question that one of my friends asked me and I’m going to try my best to answer it! Although I am answering this question the best I can, remember that I am young and I don’t know everything about Christianity or how to be a perfect Christian! Because I make mistakes and mess up sometimes too!

Anyways, so back to the question. To truly listen to God, you must walk on His path. The closer you follow God, the better you’ll be able to listen. A verse that backs up the point I made is John 10:27-28, which states:

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.

So, this verse is basically saying that if you follow God, you will hear His voice. He knows us, and we follow him wholeheartedly. He gives us eternal life, and we will never die. No one will ever take us from Him.

Another way you can listen to God is with prayer. Praying is one of the most important parts of being a Christian. When you pray, The Holy Spirit will fill you and you can feel its presence. So if you want to hear from God, make sure to pray all of the time! Seriously pray any chance you get. If you’re sitting in class, thank God for the chance to get to go to school! Whenever you are laughing or having a good time, thank God for making life so great. Jeremiah 33:3 tells us:

Call to me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known. 

So basically, pray to God and he will reveal His glory to us! The final way you can hear God would be to really get into the Word. The Bible is our guideline on how to live our lives. So, try to read your Bible as much as you can and learn more about God!

I know this blog is short, but I hope it helped you! Remember to keep your ears open and walk closely on God’s path and let him speak to you! Have a great day everyone!!

 

 

 

 

My Top 5 Beauty Tips

Hey guys! So I just wanna share some beauty and health tips with y’all today! They are mostly all natural and super easy to follow!

1- Drinking enough water

Drinking enough water has literally been my main health goal for the past 6 months. Drinking water gives your skin a beautiful natural and flawless glow, aids in digestion, and helps your brain think a little better. Drinking water also helps you lose weight in a healthy and natural way! I recommend carrying a big bottle of water with you all day long and drinking at least 2 liters a day! I noticed my best results when I was drinking about a gallon a day. Also don’t worry about having to use the bathroom a lot! It will be super annoying the first few days, but eventually your bladder will get used to consuming so much water and you won’t have to go as frequently!

2- Healthy hair

My hair has always been pretty thin, which is fine because that’s the way God made me! However, for a long time I wasn’t taking good care of my hair at all! I was putting heat on it everyday and not treating it at all! If you can, totally cut out putting heat on your hair except for special occasions! I only put heat on my hair probably once a month now, and my hair is a lot healthier and thicker because of it! I used to have longer hair, but it was really damaged and wasn’t growing well. If this is the case for you, I recommend just cutting it because no one wants super thin and dead hair! Try using coconut oil in your hair as well! Everyday before I shower, I distribute it throughout all my hair and leave it in for about 15 minutes! It will make your hair grow a lot faster and be super shiny and healthy! Coconut oil also helps you eyebrows and eyelashes too!

3- Skincare

So for the longest time, I struggled sooooo bad with acne. Like it seriously was awful. I wasn’t washing my face with the right products, and I was using cheap makeup! Right now, my skin isn’t perfect but it’s definitely getting there! For my skin, I just use a bar of ivory soap and a washcloth every morning and every night. That’s it! I never go to bed with any makeup on, and I try really hard to get my face super clean! I personally think that the less products you use on your skin, the better off your skin will be! When I have breakouts I use a little bit of coconut oil on my problem areas, but if you have oily or combination skin, this might not work for you because the coconut oil can make the oil your skin produces worse.

4- Workouts

Working out is a huge part of achieving that healthy lifestyle. I work out every night, even if it’s just 100 crunches and 100 squats. I’ll give you guys my average daily workout routine right below because a lot of people have asked me what I do!

⁃ 100 wide stance squats

⁃ 100 crunches

⁃ 3 minute plank

⁃ 30 donkey kicks ( each side )

⁃ 50 push ups

⁃ 100 jumping jacks

⁃ 50 hip dips

⁃ 25 jump squats

So I know this isn’t a lot, but I think it’s a good workout for keeping you at the same level you’re at and helps you stay in shape! Usually I’ll try to do cardio and stuff, but honestly I hate running in the cold haha! I’d recommend doing at least a mile a day if you’re trying to lose weight! I’ll be changing my workouts soon, because I want to start lifting, so I’ll let you guys know any updates!!

5- Eating Habits

I’d have to say that this is the most important thing for your body other than drinking water. Eating habits effect your beauty and health more than anything else. Honestly, I’ve been eating really bad lately because it’s holiday season and I’ve for sure been seeing negative effects on my body. I’m gonna be bouncing back into things though so I can feel confident in my body again!

For your eating habits, if you’re truly trying to be healthy, I’d recommend cutting out dairy, gluten, and red meats! These things all have super negative effects on your body. I’ve bounced around with veganism a lot the past year, and honestly it’s super hard. However, if you wanna lose weight I’d say try it for 5-7 days. You’ll seriously drop like ten pounds haha. I’m probably going to be going vegan up until Christmas and doing a couple days of water fasting so my body can get all cleansed out!! I can help anyone out if they need any diet or nutrition tips, just ask!

Alright, there are all of my tips! I hope you guys have a great day💓 love you all and thanks for reading!

Keep Fighting

So guys I’m gonna be honest, this whole school year has literally been so hard for me. I’ve totally lost myself the past five months, and I don’t know what to do about it. I saw a quote yesterday that said, “ There comes a point where you no longer care if there’s a light at the end of the tunnel or not. You’re just sick of the tunnel.” This quote REALLY hit home yesterday, and I realized that I’ve just been walking through life with my head down trying to get past the bad. The problem with this is that if you always have your head down, you aren’t looking up to see the good in the world.

I know that on this blog I always try to be so cheerful and happy, because I really want to encourage people in a super positive way. However, sometimes true encouragement isn’t happy or positive. Sometimes it’s just making light out of an issue and trying to make sense of it.

I don’t really know who I am anymore, and honestly, that’s okay. I feel trapped sort of. I don’t know how to get out of the rut that I’m in. I want to go live life to the fullest, but I don’t know how to do that. I want to go do awesome and unique things with my life, but I’m not exactly sure what those things are.

So if you’re feeling like how I do right now, I want to encourage you to not give up the fight. Keep fighting to find yourself, and try to find good in life. Over the next couple of weeks, I’m really gonna focus on trying to find out what I wanna do with my life for the second semester of school. I need to take some time to just pray that God will show me what to do. I encourage you to do the same.

I’ve also stopped caring about pretty much everything, which is NOT good. So I’m gonna try to start caring again about things like friendships, working hard, and being happy. Life isn’t always easy, and it’s really hard for me to get past this mountain that has been placed before me this year. I think it will make me stronger though in the future. God has a future for me, He has a future for all of us. It may not be what we want, but He is ALWAYS good. I’m trying to rest in that.

I’m really thankful that I have found such a passion for writing, and I can’t wait to use it to share God’s glory! Please pray for me as I make some decisions the next few weeks… they would be greatly appreciated!

Stresses From School

Honestly, school is one of my biggest idols in life. I say this so bluntly because after reading this, you would have to be quite the oblivious person to not realize this struggle of mine. I wanted to write this because I want to change my ways and I want to help others change as well.

It seems like all I do is stress and worry about my grades. I check them at least five times a day, and I’m obsessed with raising them or getting that GPA that colleges deem as ” acceptable “. The obsession with getting straight A’s has been consuming my life for the past two years, because I’ve never been able to obtain these ” perfect” grades.

For the past three years, I’ve always been a A and B student. I hate it. A’s and B’s scare me to death because most kids applying for colleges I’ll be wanting to get into have A’s and B’s. A’s and B’s seem to signify that you aren’t trying quite hard enough. Almost there, but the goal is always out of reach for me.

I’ve already planned the next three years of high school and my freshman year of college. I’ve selected my preferred schools, and three safety schools. I’m already doing things in life that will better my college application, and I’m preparing myself for the future.

Some might say that this is very responsible, and the ideal way to plan for the future. The American Dream. Success. Money. Teens all over the country are going through the same anxieties as me. But what does this all lead to?

Our society is making it seem like the only way you can be somebody is to be successful and make money. How often do we hear about missionaries reaching to lost tribes and making a difference? How often do we hear of those who stop human trafficking, or save children from death every single day? Instead, we are flooded with celebrities who have more money than entire poverty stricken towns could wish for. We have politicians and businessmen setting examples for all MILLINEALS. Power and greed are taking over our county, and this is showing greatly in the intent behind getting good grades and into acceptable colleges.

Honestly, the only reason I want good grades is because I want good money as an adult. A stable income, nice clothing, and a few nice vacations each year. I’ve realized that my intentions are so ill, and it’s time to change.

It’s MOST important to honor God in all that you do. And God calls us to not worry about worldly things like grades or colleges. We should all try our best in school, but we shouldn’t make an idol out of school. Don’t let school and homework and projects and exams consume your mind. Don’t stay up until three am studying for a test that won’t matter in two weeks. Don’t sit out of youth group or bible study to do school related things.

Most pastors don’t mention school when they are talking about idols. But I feel as if school is the biggest idol of all. Good things can become idols.

I’m coming to realize that in the whole scheme of life, things like grades do not truly matter. If something so simple as school is giving you worries in life, pray that God will renew your heart and that you will be open to his comfort. HE is our greatest comfort.

John 14:27

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

UPSIDE DOWN

I hope that y’all had a great week at school and work!

There’s a song I rediscovered called “ upside down “ by Jack Johnson. I actually remember it from Curious George, which I watched when I was probably about seven years old.

The song isn’t a Christian song, but sometimes we can apply secular music to Christian meanings and use them to glorify God!

Upside down is about a guy who wants to change his entire life, and achieve the things everyone says that he can’t do! He wants to do the impossible. It also says that the world keeps spinning, and no matter what you do, time will continue. He doesn’t wanna waste time, and he wants to live his life a little different than everyone else.

I think the guy in this song is awesome! I also think the song is very applicable to our walk as Christians. We should all try to live a life that’s different than everyone else’s. A life a little more exciting, a life a little more fun, and a life a little more meaningful.

I feel like usually, people wanna all walk down the same path. I’m not sure why this is. I know that everyone doesn’t have the same dream in life, so why do we all try to accomplish the same things? Who cares about what other people are doing, or what the “ norm “ is. Try to do what God is calling you to do, and follow your own dreams! Don’t be afraid to be different. If you wanna go do missions, do it! If you wanna live your life doing something different than what everyone else is doing, do it!

People are gonna critique you, or think that your crazy, but as long as your living a life that glorifies Jesus, who cares? People criticize, and often because they simply don’t get it! Don’t let small- minded people prevent you from living the life you are called to live.

This song is also talking about enjoying life. God wants us to enjoy our lives, and if you look around, he made so many things for our pleasure! He made yummy food, laughter, and beautiful sceneries. Our God is a God who wants us to enjoy his wonderful creations, and rejoice in them.

We shouldn’t try to live a comfortable life. We should live a life where we are constantly pushing ourselves to become better and more unique Christians. Anyways, everyone should go check out that song, and I hope you all have a relaxing weekend! 🤗

R O M A N S 12:2

Do not be conformed by the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that by testing you may discern what the will of God is- His good, pleasing, and perfect will.
