As Billboard’s youngest-ever Woman of the Year prepares to release her fifth album, 1989, she finds herself, as always, in the glare of a blinding spotlight of expectation – but if you think that scares her, you haven’t been paying attention. She calls 1989 her most sonically cohesive collection, and armed with first single, “Shake It Off,” she’s ready to blaze into the next phase of her still-young career, where she’ll continue to dance like no one’s watching, write like she stole our collective diary, and inevitably soar to ever-greater heights. All that’s left to wonder is how many more lives she’ll lift in the process.

I know now, Lord, why you utter no answer. You are yourself the answer. Before your face questions die away. What other answer would suffice?

That’s awesome! I am SO happy for you! If you have any questions about anything don’t hesitate to ask.

Also, I’d like to encourage you to start reading your Bible everyday. The book of John is a good place to start. It is located right after the book of Luke and right before the book of Acts.

Welcome to the family! :)

For the creation was subject to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.

Romans 8:20-21

As Christ followers we aren’t created to hold fast to faith until we reach the end of our lives and go home, we are called for so much more. Christ sacrifice wasn’t meant to only free our souls but our earthly lives as well. We are called to live freely in Christ so create, dance, work, sing, but do it all to the glory of God. Reject shame and embrace the freedom found in Christ.

I feel like I should blog all of my Jesus time tonight so y’all get really??

Late Night Thoughts: Why Swearing off Boys is kind of Genius.

31women:

So…. I have had my fair share of boys in life. Some whom I’ve even claimed to date (I’ve only been with one to be honest with you all). Everyone always says, “Boys will be boys.” Indeed that is true. Boys will be boys, so stop expecting them to be men or even gentlemen. 

As you get older, you start to realize that boys/guys are really immature as compared to their older counterparts. A boy at 18 is not the same at 25. The level of responsibility is drastically different, and the older version of himself feels entitled to a lot more than the younger version (duh).

…. which is why swearing of Boys (and only boys) isn’t such a bad idea. In fact, it’s kind of recommended. God urges us to wait on Him and his awesome plans for us. Check out: Psalm 27:14, Isaiah 40:13, 2 Peter 3:9, and many more . 

Boys are ephemeral. They like you until they don’t or until their hormones cool down or until another girl walks by. I will generalize and say that all boys are the same because those who do not act like boys are men, and men are not all the same.  

Stop chasing boys. They are like rabbits, forever hopping from place to place and once you catch them you realize they don’t want to stick around. (Lol, did I just compare boys to rabbits?) Instead I urge you to wait for men, especially gentlemen. These creatures do exist and trust me when I say they want to know you not because of your body, face, or any other superficial reason, but because they’re ready to see God work in their lives.

I remember all the Doctor Who fanfics I used to read where Rose often got badly stereotyped as a damsel in distress whom the Doctor had to swoop in and save and smooch but the way I remember Doctor Who 90% of their relationship was the Doctor just setting Rose loose on people who had done something to offend them and sitting back giggling in the corner as she shouted

My orientation is sunday and classes start monday and at my current school you have to order the books online. And I need to have the first chapter read for two of my classes but I don’t have either of those books yet. ugh.
