I don’t always believe God allows good things to happen to me. When I get an opportunity or start to pursue what I think is God’s will in my life, I feel like all the doors shut and I chalk it up to building experience. Earlier this year, I started to pursue a three month […]
Sometimes I wonder what you think about when you worship. I’m serious. Every so often on Sundays or at any other church gathering, I’ll take a glance around the room to look at all the people singing together, and although its always touching to see people sing about God, I wonder how many of you […]
In church we hear a lot of “if/then” statements. And the bible is full of them. God makes promises with us that are conditional, not to add a burden to our lives, but to cultivate growth in our hearts and to make us more like the Jesus. For example: If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask […]
I am a very awkward person and often make people uncomfortable when they are around me. This I know. All my life I have noticed that when people first meet me they are either super easy to talk to and we mesh well, or, the more popular reaction, they exchange a weird glance, awkward laugh, and shuffle to get […]
Here you are ladies and gents. The rough recording of None But Jesus straight from the recording studio…aka my room. Sophie Singing?!?!?!
We are all deceived if we think our lives have everything to do with us and nothing to do with Christ.
This is for the Christians. You. Me. We as a people.Or maybe I should say the American Christians because this issue seems to be strictly bound by our borders.It has been far too long since we’ve gotten a solid rebuke or a slap on the hand cause we as a people have decided its not “P.C.”We try […]
Tomorrow my friend is getting married. Weddings are the type of events that God uses to let me know that love is real. A midst all the stress, planning for months on end, the little squabbles and big fights, somehow, on that day, a bride and a groom stand before each other, recite vows, and declare a covenant of […]
Hi, my name is Sophia and I’m a people-pleaser. I have been for 21 years and have finally gotten up the nerve to confront it. I’m the person who likes to be liked. I’m the one pastors warn you about when getting advice. I’m characterized by pride, self-deception, the tendency to become over-involved in the lives […]
(a collab by Amanda Grace and Sophia Dolcine) I heard of this man named JesusThey say that he died on a treeking of the Jews, a savior to allSounds a little elusive to me. I passed by a man amid a large crowdPaul, they said was his nameHe spoke of things I just couldn’t believeBefore […]
Morning comes and I wake to a new day Never dreary eyes watch my every move Angels stand guard And I go I go on as if you aren’t there Routines constrict my need for you and I lose all focus But a gentle nudge reminds me That the Lord of all creation protects my […]
My fingers itch. Every time I get near a computer or a paper and pen I think of something else to write, something else to release. I’m always itching to write. I can’t explain how freeing it is for me to write my thoughts into words. Yesterday, while driving home from school so many thoughts were […]
My life is awesome. I’m a college student living rent free in a beautiful town. I have a great job, great pay with awesome hours, and a boss that is super chill. I’m super close to my siblings; we always find something to laugh about…every 5 mins. I have great friends and a cool group […]
truth! lol done and done Who’s idea was this?
A year. Its been a year since I’ve started blogging. A year has passed, four seasons have come and gone. God has put me through so much this year. A lot of good things, like this blog, have happened in the last 12 months and a couple really crappy things too. I just want to […]
The Old Testament is filled with stories of triumph and victory; David and Goliath, Daniel the Lions den, Jonah, Moses. All of these great stories are where the people of God are victorious in the midst of impossible odds. But as the New Testament turns another story is revealed. Since the death of Jesus a […]
