Choose

Joshua 24:15 – “Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. But as for me and my house we will serve the Lord” Why do we always seem to forget the first part of this verse? I always see home decor with “as for me and my house we will serve the Lord” but […]

Be All The Things

I really don’t need to write anymore. This sums it all. Why do we feel the need to fit into a mold, a category, a box? In high-school it was labels and cliques. For adulthood its careers and hobbies. It’s cut and dry when it should be jagged and damp. Damp is fun, with out […]

Conquer Yourself

Sometimes you can’t write. Write anyways. Sometimes you’re scared to fail. Try anyways. You’re afraid you won’t be heard. Speak anyways. You can’t move? Move the mountains anyway. You can’t work as effectively as the next guy? Freaking do it anyways. Do what you tell yourself you can’t. Put it down. Pick it up. Let […]
