So this is a post I wrote months ago for a collab but life came up. So now finally this post has come to life!
Dating has become both such a big thing but also such an insignificant thing in the culture today. Let me explain. The world is obsessed with who is dating who, who likes who, who broke up with who and so forth. But dating in the world is also really casual with no commitment.
Singleness is also seen as a curse and as a depressing time.
But that’s what the world says.
What does God say?
(by the way, I am in no way a theologian so if my theology is wrong or something please let me know!

We all have those times in life where it feels like God isn’t near anymore.
And then the trial hits.
And it hits you hard.
But you can’t feel God anywhere. You feel alone and this trial seems too big to face alone.
But there’s one thing that’s so easy to forget.

Life can be stressful at times. It can feel like you were okay a minute ago and now everything is falling apart. We can know in our heads that God has it under control but it doesn’t often feel that way.
But there is something about music.
Something that brings the truth from our head to our heart.
So here are 10 songs to remind you that God has it under control. That he loves you. This too shall pass.

Something I’ve seen a lot in myself and in the culture around me is that our focus is wrong,
We see Jesus and our relationship with him as a tap of water. We go to Jesus when we’re thirsty but once we feel good and we’re okay, we leave to do whatever we want. We like the bible when it makes us feel good. (But only some parts of the Bible). We go to church so we can feel inspired.
The thing is being Christian isn’t about that.

So it has been a little while! It is now July and I turned 17! (Which is crazy…I’m so old guys)
Anyways, onto the post!
Lately, I’ve realized that I haven’t been putting my worth and identity in Jesus. For a while I didn’t understand why I was always feeling so down, so defeated and feeling like I was a failure.

So it’s been a little while since I’ve posted. And I’m afraid it’s going to be a little longer. Life has just been very busy especially in the month of June. I’m going to be taking an official hiatus until July to hopefully get my life under control and take some time to reflect and get ready for summer.
Love you guys!
You’ve probably seen the books, the blog posts, the podcast, and the pastor talk about being a good steward. A steward of our money, our stuff, our relationships. Nothing we have is actually ours. It’s a gift that God gave us.
But what about time?
Time. It’s something that we all have but once it’s gone it never comes back.
Time is a precious gift that God gives us. We only have one life. The date today, June 4th,2018, 3:45pm (that’s the time I’m writing this at), is only happening now and it will never come back.

Whew, back at it again with the extremely long blog titles.
So I kinda disappeared from the blogosphere again. Life has been insane. I went to a youth conference which was one of the best weekends of my life. (I might be blogging about it…or maybe a vlog??? What do you guys think?)
Anyways…onto the actual post!

Life isn’t easy. In fact most of the time it’s hard. It can bring you down and make you feel like there is no way out.
But as Christian, while this life is important, it’s not the end goal.
We live for one reason.
