My God Answers Prayers

It's May. The start of summer. I'm freshly out of college. Now off to the "real world"  in search of my ideal job as an elementary school teacher. My only job at the moment: get a job!

I am content in this season and know that my time will come when He knows I'm ready. Right now I'm just focused on surviving in the "real world"! However, I do get equally excited when my friends announce that they are getting married or about to have a baby. Almost as if I'm living vicariously through them.

Why I Go To Church

For those who say, "I don't go to Church anymore because I didn't like the last one I went to for whatever reason" or "I don't go to church because it's full of hypocrites, etc." When you go to a restaurant and you don't like the food or service there, do you just stop eating altogether?

Mean What You Say & Say What You Mean

This has been on my heart for some time now, with all of the social media out there. It really bothers me when people ask for certain things from others before making sure that they themselves are together. What do I mean by this?
