How to Thrive During Big Life Changes

Hello again, my fabulous reader. If you’re dedicated enough to this blog to have noticed that 1.5-month-long hiatus, it’s good to see you again! If not, there’s grace and you still have time to repent and start paying more attention to me.

Kidding.

Switching It Up (Again) + 83 Songs To Add To Your Worship Playlist

I’ll get the boring stuff out of the way first.

Lately I’ve been feeling the pressure to post twice a week…which started out as Not That Bad™ but became more and more like an obligation that I didn’t want anything to do with.

I basically started this blog as a form of worship. I had a desire to make it professional–which was meant to be a way to glorify God in and of itself, since I want everything I do for Him to be done with excellence–but with that came the push to treat it like a profession (read: job ((read read: chore))).

Why You Actually Do Deserve God’s Love

You’re probably a little skeptical right now–or a lot skeptical–and I don’t blame you. After all, this is the opposite of what we have been conditioned to believe. I certainly believed the exact opposite. That is, up until four days ago when I had the opportunity to discuss this very topic with some deep-thinking men and women from my church. I left that conversation with my world absolutely flipped upside down.

Aaaand you’re still skeptical. On to the first heading!

The Name God Calls Himself

I know there are creatures all around You
I know there are lightenings and thunderings
I know there’s a storm all around You
Holy, Holy, Holy

I see seven lamps of fire burning
I see a sea of glass mingled with fire burning
I see the Son of Man with eyes of fire burning
Burning, burning, burning

-“Storm All Around You” by Jon Thurlow

When was the last time you took time to reflect on the holiness of God?

As a society we have reduced God to a personal servant.

We want our best life now.

We want to fall into fortune if we’ll just re-post and type “amen.”

We want perfect peace and no problems.

Learning To See

Shut your mouth; open your eyes and ears. Take in what is there and give no thought to what might have been there or what is somewhere else. That can come later, if it must come at all.

~C.S. Lewis, Surprised By Joy

Lately God has been teaching me a lesson that is glaringly simple, yet something I had never before even considered: how to see.

The comforts and mundanity of every day life tricked me into simply looking instead.

What’s the difference?

How to Let Go of Stress

Do you ever feel like you can’t get away from your stress?

We live in a stress-saturated culture. We justify our stress. Everyone else is stressed out and busy, so why shouldn’t we be?

And life is hectic. It can seem like just when we’ve finished one big task on our to-do list, there’s another one.

The Patience of God

His disciples said, “Yes, now you are speaking plainly, not in any figure of speech! Now we know that You know all things, and do not need to have anyone question You; by this we know that You came from God.” Jesus answered them, “Do you now believe?”

-John 16:29-31

If this passage doesn’t epitomize the patience of Jesus, I don’t know what does.

New Vlog: 5 Ways to Share Your Faith

In honor of my finally getting my feet on the ground in Europe, I have made another vlog (my second ever!), this time on how to share your faith.

This vlog signifies the wrap-up of the “First Love” themed posts! God’s love is unimaginable, and a healthy relationship with Him will grow our love for Him and for people over time. That love often manifests itself in the form of sharing God with those around us.

I hope this video helps you share Jesus with someone today!

Without further ado…

Until next time,

Jenna

New Vlog: The Privilege of Singleness

Hey there!

Welcome to my first ever VLOG POST!! *Cue confetti machine* (Is there such a thing as a confetti machine?)

So, earlier today I decided to try making a vlog post rather than write a blog post because I wanted to save time. And, you know, vlogs take 0 time to make. You’ve just gotta shoot the thing and upload it, right?

Stop laughing at me. I didn’t know. Now I do.
