I’m in love with the movie, The Greatest Showman. Anyone who knows me knows this! I sing at least one song a day, randomly, belting out the lyrics while I do my mundane tasks and chores. I’ll even listen to the whole album over…and over…again.
In this post, I will give a brief summary of what each song means if it was a Christian song.
I saw Spiderman: Far From Home recently and let me tell you? AMAZING! It was so good. In the movie, Peter Parker has his “peter tingle” (at least that’s what Aunt May calls it) that helps him know when danger is nearby. It’s really just his spidey senses.
When Peter started trusting his “peter tingle”, he was able to conquer the obstacles in front of him. And that had me thinking: Peter’s spidey senses are really just his sixth sense. If Peter can use his sixth sense, what about us?
Life can be hard sometimes. For most people, when difficulty comes their way, they tend to stray from God. They can’t seem to feel His presence and they feel hopeless like their hard times will never end.
Here’s the thing though, just because you’re going through rough times, doesn’t mean you can’t thrive. You were created to thrive under ALL circumstances.
What is thriving, you ask?
Thursday’s food for thought: Let’s redefine how we view success. Success is not a number of likes you get or followers you gain or subscribers you have. It’s about obeying God and doing what you believe He told you to do. So reader, why do you post on social media? We need to evaluate […]
In a world that lives off of authenticity, it’s difficult to uncover what you see someone portraying on social media is real or not.
The majority of us want to be authentic on social media.
We also want to be true to ourselves and express ourselves freely.
But do you truly know who you are?
I don’t mean just personality wise.
I saw the movie, The Sun Is Also A Star and it was pretty good. The concept from the movie of how love works when it’s meant to be was a good interpretation.
Unsurprisingly, as always from films I watch, I found a lesson I could apply to my life and I want to share it with you.
I was eating spicy fried rice and afterwards, I got really bad heartburn that wouldn’t go away.
Being dramatic, I placed my hand on my chest to feel my heart racing and that had me thinking:
What am I feeding my heart? Whatever I eat, those nutrients are being absorbed into my bloodstream and that blood is passing through my heart.
So what am I feeding my heart?
Do you repeat the same mistakes? Try to do better. Think better. But then still fail and it’s the same cycle all over again? I know I’ve been there.
I want to be a better person for the Lord, but then I fail and trip over the same mistakes over..and over…again.
How are you succeeding at being who you are? Are you bathing in God’s grace and mercy and who He created you to be? Or are you bathing in guilt, shame, and worry?
Here are five signs you are failing your inner self by not being who you are:
All I want to do is lay around all day. On my off days from work, all I want to do is sleep, watch youtube videos, and catch up on my TV shows. What I should be doing is taking care of my responsibilities, chores, and start writing that book I’ve been procrastinating. Time and […]
You’ve been hungry all day.
So you order your favorite pizza with your favorite toppings?
And the best part? Your pizza was free.
What happens when you eat that first hot slice of cheesy pizza?
Your taste buds salivate, your eyes close in pure bliss, and you make that “mmm” sound, right? You feel that temporary feeling of peace like everything is right in the world.
Isn’t that type of peace what we all want on a day-to-day basis?
Society has it set where finding your calling and purpose is the top priority to living a successful life. As a Christian, some people feel if they don’t fulfill their “purpose” or “calling” for the Lord, then they’ve failed God.
I’ve been there.
After spending time with the Lord, I realized there is one more thing the Lord finds most important above our calling or purpose.
