She Needs Jesus

This one is for everyone; men, women, and myself. Last week I wrote about how Jesus is the most important quality in a man, and this week I tell you that it is also the most important quality in a woman. Men, look for a woman who has Jesus, and women, we need to seek… Continue reading She Needs Jesus

Create in Me a Clean Heart

Psalm 51. David's prayer for forgiveness after committing adultery with Bathsheba. David's no-no with Bathsheba is my favorite example to use for waiting until marriage, because this proves that sex isn't just sex. I cannot summarize and talk about the entire psalm because I'd be here all night, so I encourage you to go read… Continue reading Create in Me a Clean Heart

What Does Purity Even Mean?

I think purity can seem self-explanatory, but having a better understanding of what purity is and how to walk in the path of purity, we are better equipped to live the lifestyle.

Jehovah-Shalom

Has your heart ever been so heavy it feels like it’s just going to fall right out of your chest? Or your mind is so cluttered and it just might explode if something else is put there?

Plans of Hope and a Future

Tears

I’ve been holding in this cry and now I feel nauseous. It has to come out one way or another. I just don’t want to cry anymore. My tears at this point are redundant. They’re echos of the same pain, springing up from the same well. My heart is so heavy. All the time. Like… Continue reading Tears

We Mess Up, He Cleans Up

Do you ever feel like you've messed up one too many times and there's no bouncing back? Or maybe you messed up once, but the thing you did was so bad there is no way you can come back from it. Like, all credibility is gone and your good deeds mean nothing. You messed things… Continue reading We Mess Up, He Cleans Up

Mascara Stains

She has mascara stains on her pillow. Every day she runs into her room and hides her face in the pillow. She cries all the time and she hopes the pillow muffles the sound of her sobs. She doesn’t remember ever crying this much, but one day she found herself sitting on the floor on… Continue reading Mascara Stains
