How has God loved me?

“How as God loved me? God has loved me to the end of all my sinfulness, the end of all my self-will, all my selfishness, all my stiffneckedness, all my pride, all my self-interest; now He says – “love one another, as I have loved you.” I am to show to my fellow-men the same love that God showed to me. That is Christianity in practical working order.”

God is not looking for brilliant men

“God is not looking for brilliant men, is not depending upon eloquent men, is not shut up to the use of talented men in sending His Gospel out in the world. God is looking for the broken men who have judged themselves in the light of the Cross of Christ.

When He wants anything done, He takes up men who have come to the end of themselves, whose confidence is not in themselves, but in God.”

Life Inside Out

Look in the Mirror. What do you see?

Because of social media you probably described what you look like and not who you really are on the inside…

I struggle with this EVERY day! Just this morning I was texting my friend complaining about my appearance,”Man I need to lose weight, I need to do better with what I eat, I wish I had a faster metabolism” etc etc etc…. How sad that this is how so many of us see ourselves..

This train of thought is so toxic! But how do we break what we have been fed our entire lives! How do we guarantee that our children will not grow up looking in the mirror and be blinded by societies view of them instead of who they really are!?

“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord…

Dream as if you’ll live forever, Live as if you’ll die today

Originally posted on Ramblings of a College Introvert:

We’re responsive creatures, always yearning for some kind of carnal or spiritual fulfillment. So many of our conversations are dedicated to that one question: What makes us feel alive? For me it’s neither people nor adventures. It’s the shapes and colors that make up a city I love.

When I took a semester off in Cali, all I could think about was how much I missed NYC and how exciting it would be to blog about college life there. But four months after I returned to NYU I’ve only written four posts on my adventures here in the Big Apple. Ostensibly it’s because I just haven’t had the time. In reality it’s because I’ve kind of lost confidence in my writing. I don’t think I’ll ever be as good a writer as I would like to be, and I certainly don’t think I’m good enough to capture the sense of wonder I feel every time…

  1. FLU

Cough and colds easily spread even during the summer months as erratic weather bring sudden downpour from time to time.

AVOID IT! Get vaccinated against influenza before the flu season begins in June. Advise those who are feeling sick to stay home and to always cover their nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing.

  1. SORE EYES

Sore eyes or conjunctivitis, when mistreated, can lead to blindness. More than just eye irritation, it can easily be due to harmful bacteria or viruses that easily spread to other people.

AVOID IT! Consult a doctor for proper treatment and remember to always wash your hands before and after eating to prevent spread of infection.

  1. STOMACH AILMENTS

Vomiting and diarrhea follows after consumption of contaminated food or drinks. This summer, be cautious of street foods and  even those packed lunches prepared for out-of-town trips.

AVOID IT! Be cautious on picking food to eat…
