This Is The Day

From the barista who told me not to worry about paying for my bagel because my smile made her day;

to the research assignment I got great feedback from in class;

to the way my roommates and I have been bonding on whole new levels;

to the fantastic message delivered through a guest speaker at youth group;

to the moments Jesus Himself alone just brought a smile to my face;

to the 12am candy run and essay-cramming party with my roomies;

to the compliment I got in my renewed energy levels and “healthier looking legs;”

to the late-night conversation I got to have with my beautiful friend from church Semara and her brother about the way their friend loves;

to the kindness of a woman I spoke to on the phone about an order I’d placed;

to the good news that Johnny’s feeling better from a sickness;

to my time in the Word this morning where my attention was brought to things in Exodus that I’ve never noticed before…

I might have dwelled today on the things that seemed big or harrowing or frustrating– but every day is new in the Lord, and every day is one that He has made. Lord, may I rejoice in the good and the seemingly bad, may I look to You in all things and love selflessly in all things, learning from Your example and Your Spirit. Amen.

Welcome! Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to own a blog, and I created this one to inspire others and help myself. I am a passionate twenty something-year old woman with a love of cooking, tap dancing, and meeting new people-- and of course, primarily an intention to die to my human self and seek God with my whole being. I will eat anything with peanut butter and love spontaneity. I aim to live life in submission to what Christ has for me. I'm currently studying Christian Theology and English at Wilfrid Laurier University in Ontario, Canada.
