It’s back to school season, and I’m not sure how I feel about that yet (ask me in 3 weeks), but I hope you are excited, especially if you’re just starting out in college. I wish you a great semester and year ahead. I hope you are ready to take on this new adventure and to experience life like never before. In the midst of excitement and nervousness, it’s quite easy to forget a few important things you need for school no matter how basic, but don’t worry, I’m here to remind you of them.
Here are 5 things you shouldn’t be forgetting this school year: Continue reading “Back To School Reminder || Things you should have ready for school”
I’m sorry for neglecting my style posts for the longest time, it’s mostly because I assumed that you enjoyed my ‘deep’ posts more. I also don’t think I’m the most stylish person, when compared to fashion bloggers who you can probably learn more from, but I received a comment this week requesting more style posts, and who am I to ignore. That was my cue to bring back style posts, and here’s the first one after several months. Hope you like it!

I know I know, the title of this post sounds all fancy and official, and I have my friend, Sophia to thank for that. She suggested that I write this, and it surprised me that I never thought to write about prayer before. I probably thought I had something similar up since prayer is so dear to my heart, but I guess I was wandering in dreamland. You might have noticed that every religion has elements of prayer in it. That’s because if you believe in God or something greater than yourself, you understand the need to put your hope and trust in the entity ruling over you and the whole world, an entity that knows and controls everything from past to the future.
Prayer stems from accepting that you need to worship/ reverence God, and make your requests known to him. It is casting your burdens at his feet and letting him take care of them. You pray because you are fighting battles against demons and principalities that you cannot see. Prayer time is a time to bask in the glory of your maker, and allow your heart experience his mightiness. Prayer opens doors, moves mountains, breaks chains, soothes your soul and allows you to feel God’s presence constantly.
Think about it this way, God Almighty has given unworthy you unconditional access to approach his throne of grace and mercy, and you ought to take full advantage of the privilege. Here’s a simple definition of prayer by Dr. Ralph Martin that I love; “Prayer is at root simply paying attention to God.” It is humbling yourself, accepting that it is not about you or your situation, but it’s instead all about God and his glory. This is what we are created for anyways, to glorify God!
Now that you understand why you need to pray, let’s get into the practicals of making prayer a lifestyle: Continue reading “The Underestimated Power of Prayer”
How time does fly. It’s been a full month of not writing or putting up any post, and this wasn’t my intent. Let me tell you, I had such huge blog plans for summer 2017. I was going to put up posts almost daily, and be annoyingly consistent. I’m so happy for you guys that this didn’t happen. I was very excited, but you know how life is, you can only plan for the future but you never know how it’ll go. God had a lot of unexpected plans for me. For example, I thought I would have plenty free time during the summer than I did during school but this wasn’t the case. I don’t know how it happened, but summer felt busier than the past semesters. Busy in the greatest way possible. Busy learning, growing, exploring and relaxing. Since I wasn’t prepared for the workload, I slacked with keeping up. But now, I’ve gotten into a steady rhythm of things (just when summer is about to end, yay me), and I’m back! Continue reading “Funny story of how I started blogging”
