“failures”

Standard

Today is September 18, 2016. It’s a good day & I’m spending it alone in Innisfree – a fair trade and local coffee shop, which makes me love it even more.

Last night, I babysat for a new family, & the kids were adorable. Today, Kiersten told me that the family loved me and it was really good to hear. It also reminded me of how last semester when I “interviewed” for another family’s one day a week sitter, I left the “interview” thinking to myself “well, didn’t get that one lol”, (and i didn’t get it). But I also think back to last semester and realize, I would not have survived with the extra weekly commitment.

Freshman year, I remember walking out of my RA interview knowing I messed the interview up, but I think back and realize I wouldn’t have met Lindsey, my random roommate, who has become another sister to me andĀ helped me grow SO much.

I kept thinking back to even more “failures”. The reason I have this in quotations is because I realized that these failures weren’t really failures; they were life eventsĀ leading me towards a different path that was more fit for me, my purpose, and who I’m supposed to become. Failures are God’s way of leading you in the right direction. Praise, today is such a good day.

Him

Standard

It’s time to bring God back into the picture.

These mountains, this land. The computer you’re reading this off of, your family. Those best friends, your talents. The food on your table, the socks on your toes. The sun in the sky, the snow in the winter. The overpopulation of rabbits, the Starbucks you’re able to grab every morning. It’s all because of Him. We are on this planet only because of His creation, His plans, and His purpose.

Every day we fail to recognize that each day is a gift. And it’s because of Him that we even are given another day to live. We fail to realize that each day is another part of His plan. Each day is another day for us to fulfill His purpose. Each day is a chance for us to glorify Him.

“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” -2 Corinthians 5:20-21 (NIV)

Think about that.
