5 Things I Didn’t Know About Support Raising

You have to build a relationship first. People are more likely to give if they know you and your passion for what you’re doing. People will donate if they don’t know you, but they’re more likely to if you have “history”. It is all in God’s timing. You can plan and scheme all you want,…

on my mind

I took a break from blogging yesterday because I felt like I was just writing down stupid stuff that came in my head, and while I was taking a break yesterday, God just gave me so much to talk about so get ready!

all day every day

Every time I turn around, I see Jesus. Isn’t that crazy? Like even when I’m doing something I probably shouldn’t do, He’s ALWAYS there. Today, I was on twitter instead of doing my quiet time and this girl dmed me and said she was praying for me to raise all the support I needed. And…

sleep

Something I’ve been learning recently is about preparing for my future self. Getting things ready for myself so that when a fast-paced situation comes, I’ll thrive. I’m in a fast-paced season, so whenever I have down time I’m learning to spend that time planning ahead instead of “relaxing”. While it’s good to relax, I can…

don’t run

This story begins a few months ago when *I thought* God told me something about what he had for me in the future (not YWAM-related). It was something so crazy, that I told God he was going to have to drag me “kicking and screaming” into it (my EXACT words, via my journal) because I…

who you gonna call?

I feel like I write all my posts about what God is teaching me, and unfortunately, it’s not all butterflies and roses. God is teaching me recently about who I rely on. Who do I call or text first when something happens? I’ve always struggled with putting other people before God but this weekend/yesterday has…

best mood

This morning I’m in the best mood ever. I wish I would have gotten up earlier, but I was up late last night. I’m trying to make some lifestyle changes so that I’m already in the routine of things when I need to start doing it. Like, I want to be in the routine of…

what I wish I knew 4 years ago

pick your friends based on who you are, don’t base yourself on who you picked to be friends with. grades matter. it may feel like the end of the world if the cute boy doesn’t text back, but it’s really not. being alone is FUN! people will like you for the REAL YOU. it’s okay…

quitting

Literally every day I tell God I’m quitting. I tell him I’m quitting with what he wants me to do. I’m quitting living life the way he wants me too. I’m quitting doing “the right thing”. Every day I say “I quit”. And every time without fail, God tells me that it’s okay. It’s okay…

God talks

Despite it being a hot, Texas summer, it is SO cold indoors!! I literally can’t go anywhere without regretting not bringing a jacket or sweatpants. Starbucks, Hardin-Simmons library, every where I go. It’s colder than Antarctica. Okay probably not, but it is COLD! Yesterday I had a good talk with God. As yall know I’ve…

rollercoaster

I don’t even know where to start today.. so much has happened in the past 24 hours. Let’s go back to 24 hours ago. I went to my aunt and uncle’s house to practice my “missionary speech” for when I sit down and ask people to join my team. That was so great, but when…

psalm 1 tree

Good morning yall! I wasn’t able to sleep real well last night so I’ve been up for awhile. The last 7 months of my life, when I pray I’ve been getting pictures of a flower or people have told me they’ve gotten pictures of flowers, or they send me verses with flower references.. needless to…
