Celebrations!

The last month of my life has been the most unpredictable, busy, amazing and fun I've had in a while! I had an amazing birthday that I celebrated with special friends and cannot believe that I am already 23. I spent Christmas with my family and after the Christmas concert at my church, I spent time with friends hanging out in Portland. New Year's was spent with my church youth in prayer, worship and fun- after which I had an after party at my place. I have so enjoyed being able to spend so much time with friends this past month and am kind of sad that they have to go back to school and I have to spend more time at work. On the other hand I am ready for life to quiet down a little bit. One of my New Year's Resolutions has been to build routine into my life so that I can be more productive. While I was in school many things were chaotic and unpredictable- now that I have more stability in my life I want to work on creating good habits and sticking to them. The last chapter of Screwtape Letters that I read talked about how God created us to enjoy change, but also added permanence in proportion so that the two would balance out and we can enjoy both. I feel that perhaps I have been discontent with the fact that the next chapter of my life is to be filled with more permanence than change and realized that it actually might be wrong for me to be attached to change so much. God gives us different amounts of each during different times of my life and I think that now I am just moving into another chapter where I have to adjust to having less crazy changes and more stability- both of which are reasons to be content and happy about. I hope you all had an amazing holiday season and will go into this year with resolutions that will make you more like Christ. Happy 2016!

The Prosperity Gospel Driven Life

Any serious Christian who has thoroughly read their Bible will easily tell you that the Prosperity Gospel is complete heresy- I agree. I have grown up myself often laughing at some of the stuff Joel Osteen and others alike preach, justifying their lavish lifestyles and preaching to thousands that if they believe in God they will be rich and healthy. They tell people to speak things into existence and believe wholeheartedly that anything that is even a slight hardship could never be God's will for their life. We often make jokes and poke fun at the Prosperity Gospel and thats its completely the opposite of what the Bible actually says and what all of the apostles and martyrs went through. But recently I started to notice in my own thinking that even though I fully agree that the Prosperity Gospel is heresy, I still pursue it in my daily life. My basic definition of the Prosperity Gospel is "putting your hope in anything earthly that God didn't promise." I have been no…
