dealing with stress and

Well, it appears I've cut off the other part. I'm not sure about you, but I'm going to be honest: lately, i've been going through extreme stress and anxiety. It happens like this. God blesses me! I've done something good! God's allowed it to become FAR more wonderful than I could dream of. As you… Continue reading dealing with stress and

It Sounds Like It Was Written By A Man

It seems like every time I’m debating with an atheist about the Bible, Leviticus is always brought up. I understand the struggle. I remember going through Leviticus one day and reading this: “If two men are fighting, and the wife of one steps in to rescue her husband from the one striking him, and she… Continue reading It Sounds Like It Was Written By A Man

There is a girl who lives down the street and even though I have no reason to to love her, I do. I can't help loving her, even though I've no reason to love her. And it's the kind of love where you want to run and lift them up and spin around with them:… Continue reading strong

The Wind Rises: Dreams

Watching a good Ghibli movie is like getting hit by a train. Watching The Wind Rises is like falling into a sad and very beautiful dream. The Wind Rises is a semi-autobiographical movie about Jiro Hiroshiki, an engineer who made airplanes--specifically, the airplanes used to bomb Pearl Harbor and begin Japan's chapter in World War Two. The most… Continue reading The Wind Rises: Dreams

becoming human.

I built this article on one idea: Life isn't what we see, but also what we don't see. This morning I've been researching New York's third trimester abortion law. I looked at the bill. I could not believe my eyes. ""Person" refers to the victim of homicide who has been born and is alive." You mean… Continue reading becoming human.

Things.

we might  get snow tomorrow and we're happy about that. See that? Happy. Okay so here the definition of happy is going to be "pleasant feelings or associations" with an event or thing, like snow. and i mean i have nothing against feeling happy about stuff. Feelings are nice. Note that you can also feel angry, sad, surprised… Continue reading Things.

does anyone else have this problem?

I sat down at my desk planning to write and schedule three blog articles! Yay! I also wanted to do a lesson of math today (wow, ambitious) and write for thirty minutes, and--! Maybe it's because I'm sick, but I'm having this issue. As soon as I sit down on, my attention is fractured into… Continue reading does anyone else have this problem?

E-D-I-T-I-N-G

Your fingers hover over the keyboard. You know what you should do, but you can’t bring yourself to do it. Ah, yes: Editing. The dreaded word. Don’t feel bad: it’s true for every author. No one’s thoughts and ideas appear on paper the exact way we imagine.     Especially in environments (your ENG II… Continue reading E-D-I-T-I-N-G

Inward Hips, Inward Heart

I’ve been doing a lot of stretching and flexibility practice these past few weeks, thanks to Alivia D'Andrea and her inspirational tutorials. Anyway, me being the nerdy theology geek I am, I began to notice a similarity between stretching one’s body and stretching one’s heart. Like this. A big part of flexibility is pushing past… Continue reading Inward Hips, Inward Heart

God’s Plan (for real, though)

A few days ago, I came home from a trip. My dad told me, “Charles Krauthammer died today. Maybe you’ve heard of this too. Now, do I know him personally? No. Do I agree with all his politics? Do you? Perhaps not. But that’s not what I’m talking about here. To me, having heard his… Continue reading God’s Plan (for real, though)

1 Corinthians 2–Notes

1 Corinthians chapter 2 does something big: It explains and encourages. Here is the encouragement: “And I was with you in weakness and fear and much trembling, and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the spirit and of power that your faith might not rest… Continue reading 1 Corinthians 2–Notes

Raven King Review/Conclusion

And at last! We reach the end! The Raven King is very interesting. Plus, PLOT TWIST. Spoilers ahead! Proceed with caution. The Good: I'm reeling. I still can't decide whether the plot twist to do with Glendower is good or bad. SPOILERS: I suppose if Glendower was still alive, it would have made for an… Continue reading Raven King Review/Conclusion

Haha, it's the Blue Review. But I promise it's not sad. What is sad, however, is my appalling absences. I really need to deal with this! But hopefully I'll be able to start posting more regularly.

Your Name, Not Mine, Be Glorified

...I'm plagued with thoughts of comparison, of guilt, of that voice inside us all telling us we're not good enough. And the hardest part to accept is that that voice is right.

Guard Your Heart

I'm doing a study of the Proverbs and among the prominent “listening” theme, is a verse that stood out to me: Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. I made a connection with another verse (recognize this one?) “Out of the heart the mouth speaks.” This tells me… Continue reading Guard Your Heart

Waiting on Love

The number one thing that I see so many people—every person, really—desire above all else is love. Deep within us, we know we're not meant to be alone. Deep within us, we desire the love and affirmation of a person—sometimes any person. Ever wonder (annoyed) why almost all pop songs are about love? That's because… Continue reading Waiting on Love

Contentment

I once saw a book titled “The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment”. I have never read the book, but the title stayed in my mind whenever I thought of the word contentment. Why? Because it tells us two things about contentment. The first thing is that contentment is “rare”. The second thing is that contentment… Continue reading Contentment

Kindness

In my article “Why I’m Not a Feminist in the 21st Century”, one of the main reasons I don’t support feminism is because feminism supports a message of selfishness and pride. What’s the opposite? Kindness. Kindness forces us to look out for other people rather than ourselves. Kindness broadens our perspectives on life. If you’re… Continue reading Kindness

Why I am NOT a feminist in the 21st century

Scrolling down my reader, one article popped out to me: Why I am a feminist in the 21st century. Interestingly, my biggest problem with feminism is that it's the 21st century. If it wasn't the 21st century, I might be a feminist. Back then, there was really injustice. And now, there is still injustice. But… Continue reading Why I am NOT a feminist in the 21st century

It seems like every time I pray for a "strong Christian" friend, it's never answered. And I've started to wonder: why? Why has God never granted this wish? Here's what I've realized. I think that I have to stop asking for "strong Christian" friends because God places the people in our lives that he does… Continue reading People
