Lately I’ve been reflecting and diving into the things/ activities that I really enjoy. I am currently developing a deeper appreciation and fondness of pottery. I am getting back into climbing and bouldering after taking a short break. What I really love about these two activities is the beauty in each of them. There is […]Read More My First Love and My Best Love
Hello people. In these past weeks, I have been on what I like to call the “struggle bus”. And I am partly comforted to know that we are all on that bus from time to time… or all the time lol. Anyway, I feel like I am just being swamped my situations. My dad had […]Read More Transcending the Struggle Bus
The Lord has been faithful to me in such a fresh way this week. He has exposed me, all of my faults, expectations, and insufficiency. I feel so naked before Him. Being exposed is very uncomfortable. Knowing that someone can see all of you– skin, bones, scars, heart, shame, secrets, fantasies, thoughts, desires, fears, and […]Read More Faithfulness of The Lord
Let’s just start with one BIG exhale and an “Oh Lord Jesus!” haha. I enjoy Christ as the ultimate reality. Somewhere in the book of Romans it says, “for from Him and to Him and through Him are all things.” I have really experienced Jesus in this way recently. He is more.

This is why it is so difficult for people to actually feel they’re successful, because they’re not putting in work where it will last. Sure, […]Read More Success
“Every good and perfect gift is from above,” indeed! I cannot even begin to explain my experience of the Lord Jesus in these past weeks. Oh, how we’ve enjoyed each other! It blows my mind that the Most High sees it fit to begin making me into His bride at all, especially at such a […]Read More Making Me His
I love how God works. I adore Him and am deeply moved by His affections for me. In the past weeks the Lord has showed me wonderful things: HE is the author and perfecter of my faith, meaning that all the faith I have is evidence of the Father taking up residence in my spirit […]Read More The Affectionate Heart of God
In the past week, I have learned more about Jesus’ heart toward me than I have in my whole walk with him thus far. I have been praying the prayer, “Jesus, I believe, make my heart believe,” for a long time, wanting to truly feel His larger than life love for me. And in the […]Read More Finding Love in my mess
