Growing Spiritually During College is Possible

I always here people say that you can't grow as a Christian while you're in college. "You can hold on to your faith and try not to lose it, but you can't progress and grow." That is so far from the truth. I've only been at school for about a week and a half and … Continue reading Growing Spiritually During College is Possible

Head to the Heart

This past Sunday I attended my first church service while in college. Two of my friends and I went to a contemporary service at Grace Athens. The service was really good. We opened with some songs. Then we listened to a message given by the head pastor and ended with two more songs and communion. … Continue reading Head to the Heart

He is The God Most High

I recently finished a fourteen day devotional about the different names of God. One of the days I learned about the name "Elyon" which means God Most High. Genesis 14:14 says "I will ascend above the high places of the clouds. I will make myself like El Elyon." The name El Elyon sets God apart … Continue reading He is The God Most High

The “God” Filter

Well hear it is guys! This is the last post of my series on filters. Over the last couple weeks I've told you all about the us filter, fight filter, and the wisdom filter. We're closing it off with the God filter. I hope y'all have enjoyed this series and I'd love to get some … Continue reading The “God” Filter

The “Wisdom” Filter

We have all made dumb decisions. Either we knew it was not going to turn out well or we just weren’t thinking. At the end of the day dumb decisions don’t really matter unless they involve things that matter. Smart people can still do dumb things, but wise people are less likely to do so. … Continue reading The “Wisdom” Filter

The “Fight” Filter

We all love comfort. There’s no avoiding it. The comfort zone is a great place. I wrote a post about it a couple months ago. The speaker at BigStuf told us “the best life is an easy life.” That is what society tells us, but trust me, this life won’t always be easy. The best … Continue reading The “Fight” Filter

The “Us” Filter

Why is “your group” your group? Continuing on last week’s post about filters this week I am going to share with you the idea of the “us” filter. Last week I gave you all an introduction to the filters we use in our everyday lives. We also have filters we use for the friends that … Continue reading The “Us” Filter

Filters: See Different, Be Different

This past week I attended a Christian youth camp at Panama City Beach called BigStuf. Our main theme for the week was “Filters.” Over the course of seven sessions two different speakers taught us about the different filters we use in our everyday lives. We all have filters that affect every aspect of our lives; … Continue reading Filters: See Different, Be Different

Love Goes On

I'm gong to stay on the theme of music this week by sharing the lyrics of one of my favorite praise and worship songs. "Love Goes On" by Hillsong Young & Free is an up beat contemporary song that celebrates God's never ceasing love. I love the line that says "love unfailing, never shaken, hope … Continue reading Love Goes On

Faith is a Journey

This life is not a battle. It is a journey. When I first began my walk in my faith I thought that it was a battle. I thought that I would have to fight and resist. Then I realized that I really didn't have to. After a couple of years it hit me that we … Continue reading Faith is a Journey
