Don’t make me blush, anon. Thank you. xoxo
I MADE IT! I’m so thankful to God for instilling in me a passion for cinema. And I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for my amazing friends and family. Thank you for encouraging and supporting me the past three years (even when I wanted to drop out during my second semester lol). Shout out to the late Roger Ebert who showed me that film is to be loved and looked at with great care and an open mind. Woo! Class of 2014! #cinema #film #graduation #columbiacollege #chicagotheatre #chicago #afterlight
I was sifting through the Psalms and gravitated towards chapter 29. It is a great reminder of God’s extreme power. I find that we underestimate God based on what we see in our own lives. We are quick to blame God for His distance and lack of answering prayers. In all honesty, I believe it is our own selves that are due the blame. We constantly allow the enemy to distract us with things that cloud our focus on God. And while we have a sinful, selfish nature, it’s important to trust that God is who He says. We can’t allow ourselves to fall for deceit that diminishes the God of the universe. Let me tell you something: God moves mountains. God answers prayers. God heals. He is mighty and strong. Believe today that God can work in your life. Seek Him with all of your heart. Commit to Him today and you will see great things happen. Come close to God and He will come close to you. #jesus #god #bible #scripture #psalms #afterlight
"By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge it’s rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures." Proverbs 24:3-4 • Oh these verses are filled with such truth. Upon reading this, I started to visualize my spiritual home. Christ laid down as the solid foundation, as the core of it all, so that my home could stand firm through all types of storms and trials. I started to envision all types of scriptural truths embedded in my home, making it stronger as I’ve come to know God more and more. Dear friends, God wants us to know Him. Intimately. He doesn’t want to be an acquaintance. He isn’t that distant, condemning being that people label Him as. He is so much more than that… And as we continue to spend time with Him and His people, we come to know Him more and our homes will keep filling with treasures of truths. God treasures us, you see. He sees us as a treasure in His home. He just wants us to know Him and to love Him, too. What does your spiritual home look like? #scripture #bible #proverbs #jesus #socality
these roses have been wedged into the pages of Hosea for over 300 days. their age reminds me of the countless truths God has taught me from this radical, uncomfortable, scandalous love story. It’s utterly ludicrous, yet I’m compelled, captivated, by this kind of relentless love.
