There Is Hope For You And Me!

Lately I've been going through a lot and so many times it has looked like there is no hope for me at all. I've questioned everything that I have ever known, and I really didn't know if there was ever an end to all of this. I heard this song on the radio and it really spoke to me. We need to turn to God in our struggles, because when we follow Him, there will be hope. Without Him guiding us, we really have no hope in life. But we have someone to look toward.

Girl Talk Series

Now I did start doing this post series on my beauty and fashion blog, but since I deleted it I thought I'd start it on this blog. This girl talk series is going to be where you can ask advice on certain topics or if you just want to know more about something. Since practically all of my followers are girls, I am willing to do anything you would like to read about. If you want to read about boys, acne, periods, confidence, or anything of that sort, please comment down below! Also if you have any specific advice questions I will love to help you. You will also remain anonymous if that's your wish. I'm super excited to be starting this series and I hope y'all are too!

My Story

They can't go hang out with their friends because they freak out about it too much. Its hard for them to go into an unknown setting because they may have a huge panic attacks. Panic attacks are almost on a daily basis. And when they do get super bad it feels like they are going to die. So many people deal with anxiety and worry so often. Me included.

I haven't had anxiety my entire life. It started just a few years ago. I would freak out about every little thing. I just thought that I was super dramatic and nothing was really wrong. Then one day my heart started skipping beats and hurting super bad. I wouldn't be able to breath for ten seconds because my heart was doing crazy things. I went to the doctor about it and they did blood tests and everything came up normal. They decided to put a heart monitor on me to see if anything was wrong. Nothing was wrong either. I was super scared because I didn't know what was wrong with me and if I was going to die. My doctor talked to me about my problem and said that I had some kind of anxiety disorder. I didn't really care much about it. Then when I went to a church camp this past summer, it got super bad. I started not being able to breath and my legs and arms went numb. I couldn't move. I started going into unconsciousness. I thought for sure I was going to die. I remember just praying that God would help me since I was all alone and I couldn't do anything to help myself. After my panic attack was gone I was okay. Now today I freak out about the simplest things and am never just at peace. I've had people tell me that I'm just seeking attention and that I don't really have a problem. Little do they know what I go through. Now I am not telling you this story for sympathy. I want to let you know that if it wasn't for God I would be way worse off in my anxiety. Its hard to trust God in things that we can't control, I know! But we have to be willing to give him our entire lives and let Him take over. We can't control the things that go on anyways, so why worry about it? I know this is super hard to do, because I'm still struggling with it. But I think if we all work together we can over come our anxiety!

What to Post.....

As I am getting older I have realized I'm going through different things and I react differently to the situations I am in. Three years ago when I started my blog I was 14. I didn't have to face the stuff that I have to face now. So as I grow older my blog will also grow with me. I most likely won't post like I posted years ago. I just wanted to give you all a heads up so when I do post different kind of things it won't come as a complete shock. (now don't worry I still will be posting encouraging and Godly posts to help y'all)

I'm baaaackkk!

Okay so I know you all are probably think that I fell off the face of the planet. Its been like over 4 months since I last posted. Well I took a break over the summer and just never came back after school started. I am definitely going to try to get back into the swing of things with blogging. Just please bare with me. I've been going through a lot of stuff, and just haven't felt up to posting and being super positive. But anyways I'm going to put everything past me and try to get back into blogging. I've really missed talking and interacting with all of you! :)

Let It Go!

I'm sure most of you have seen Disney's Frozen movie. I loved the movie to death, but that is beside the point. A song that really inspired me in the movie was Let It Go! It may not be a "christian song" but it has so much truth packed into it.

As humans we want to be in control of everything. We hate it when things don't go the way as we have planned it. Hardships come our way and we hold on to everything that people have said or done to us. I know from personal experience that it is very hard to let things go.

We need to let everything that has hurt us go, and place it in God's hands. When we let go and let God, He will work in our lives like we won't believe. This is something that I'm definitely struggling with too, so if you struggle with this you are not alone.

Let Go and Let God
Let Go and Let God!
As in Frozen, Elsa had to let go and realize who she was. Everyone in her town hated her, but she had to let go and be herself. Just as Elsa we need to let go of the things that are holding us down.

Its More Than A Fashion Statement

Modesty is more than a fashion statement, its a lifestyle.

Being modest is hard work, I think we can all agree to that. Today at stores there are hardly any clothes that are fashionable and modest. I've seen so many girls chose to dress all cute and fashionable, and not dress modestly. Now I am not saying that if you dress modestly you can't dress cute. NO WAY! You learn to improvise your clothing. 

I think us as girls have to have a different mindset when we dress modestly. It is so easy to complain and get depressed because we can't wear a cute dress. We have think that we are doing guys a favor by dressing modestly.

❤️

Something that has stuck in my mind for such a long time is something that a lady in my church said once. She said that would you want to be wearing that in front of your best friends future husband and cause their marriage to fall apart because of what you wore? When she said that, it definitely made me think more about what I want to wear.

So many girls now dress immodestly because they want attention from guys. Do you really want a guy to "like" you because of what kind of outfit you are wearing and if its hugging certain areas? No. You want a guy who will love you for your personality and for the true you. Guys who only like girls who don't wear modest clothes aren't going to be the right guy who will always stick by you, and be a future husband.

The way you dress also shows what is on the inside. When you see a girl dressing modestly and walking confidently, you can think to yourself that she is a girl who is pure on the inside and is confident with herself. If you see a girl wearing immodest clothes it shows that she lacks the self-confidence and self-worth of herself.
modest is hottest

What Is Prayer Really?



Many people have put a specific definition on prayer. They think that prayer is when you ask God for things. Which yes, prayer is part of that, but there is SO much more included in prayer.

Praying is your way to communicate with God. When you pray it shouldn't just be asking him for things. You can treat him as you would treat your best friend. Just talk. You can tell him about your day, tell him about what you are feeling. He is always there with you. 

Also another thing many people forget about prayer, is to just stop and listen. Don't talk all the time. Sometimes just sit in the presence of God and listen. God will speak to you. Most likely it won't be audibly heard, but you will be able to feel him near to you. 

Praying is such an important part in your relationship with God. Without prayer, you aren't able to get to know him. Its just like if you never talked to your best friend. Would you know his/her likes? Their dislikes? No, you wouldn't. 

When you pray God can reveal things to you. This will also be the time when you will be able to figure out what God's calling is on your life.
