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

Would you want other women wearing revealing clothes in front of your husband?

You belong to the King of kings and He says you're beautiful!

God says you are beautiful! It doesn't matter what anyone else says. I have never seen an ugly person in my entire life. All of you are gorgeous!

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.

Q&A {10}

q&a

If you could go anywhere in the world at any time period, where would you go?

Ooohhhh this is a hard one. I'd probably go to the Bible times when Jesus was on earth. Then also the Victorian Era. :)

If you could meet anyone that has ever lived, who would it be? 

Hmmm..... well obviously anyone in the Bible times, then I think it would be so cool to meet Queen Victoria.

Why shouldn't a guy shave his entire head, when the Bible says his head should be uncovered?

Ok well, the Bible does say that the man's head should be uncovered. I talked to my pastor about this and he said that a man's head should be uncovered on places he shouldn't have his hair be covering. In an example a man shouldn't have his hair be down on his shoulders. I hope this makes sense. :)

Whats your favorite sport?

Probably volleyball!

This Is The Real Me {6}



I'm scared of the future.

I'm sure everyone has been scared of the future at some point of their lives. I'm super scared of the future. What am I going to do after highschool? What college am I going to go to? What should I major in? Will I make new friends? Will I get married? I'm scared of all of these things. As teens, we are constantly being pressured to make decisions about our future. Sometimes you won't know what you want to be when you grow up until you actually do something and realize this is what you love doing. I realized I have a choice to make I can freak out and worry about the unknown future or I can put my future into the hands of someone who knows what my future will bring. God knows what our future will hold and if we just trust him with our future it will work out good. Yes, we may have struggles, but trusting God is the best that we can do!

If you ever want to talk I'm here. You can always send me a comment with your email address (I won't publish it) and I'll try to contact you. :)

What Is Easter Really About?

What is Easter really about? Is it about the Easter bunny bringing candy to children all over the world before they wake up in the morning? Is it about all of the family reunions that occur on this day? Is it about getting that day off of work? Sadly today this are some of the reasons that the world thinks that Easter is really about. Easter isn't about all the candy that you get. It isn't about bunnies at all. The real reason for Easter is that Jesus died on the cross for every single person that lived and will ever lived.

And he rose on Easter Sunday. He didn't stay in the grave. He was victorious and won the battle! So this Easter weekend remember what the real reason we celebrate Easter. Have a wonderful and safe Easter, everyone!

How are you celebrating Easter this year?

A Lot Of Peoblems

Gossiping about others can hurt them in the long run. And people will try to do it about you too.

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Romans 8:31-32

We don't have to fear anything, God will always take care of us!

Amen:-)

We all should have a personal relationship with God.


We should stop thinking about the negativity in our lives and think about the postitivity.
