I wanna set the world on fire
God’s love is amazing to me.
The way he talks to you.
The way he answers your prayers.
The way he doesn’t answer them.
The way that he knows your journey before you ever do.
The way he puts it on your heart to help others. To show them compassion and love. To show them that someone is there for them in a world of darkness. When I first found out the shine project was coming to Dallas, when I realized that I was going to be able to help bring warmth to those that are cold. My heart was filled with love.
I’m just one person.
But I know I can help make a difference.
Maybe it will be a word of encouragement.
Maybe it will be a blanket draped over the sleeping man in the alley because he has no place to go.
Maybe it will only be a smile to a stranger.
Maybe it will be a hand to hold.
I think it’s amazing how God gives you the ability to make your dreams come true. To give you the courage to over come your fears.
To go forth with what your suppose to do.
Who your suppose to be.
God, you never fail to amaze me.
It breaks my heart to know there are people that can’t see the light.
To know that there are people suffering.
There are people hurting.
I want to reach out to them.
I know God has a purpose for everything, even If I don’t understand it.
I just have to trust him.
I have to do what I can.
I have to let go & let him take me on the journey.
I want him to use me.
(The song i’m quoting on the picture’s is Set the world on fire by britt nicole)
I have changed
Just listened to that slow steady thump. thump. thump.
Was it ever because you finally discovered who you were?
“There is no satisfaction that can compare with looking back across the years and finding you’ve grown in self-control, judgment, generosity, and unselfishness.” – Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Its an odd feeling to look back on old posts and read to current one’s. Watching the change occur in writing. It’s another thing to feel it in my heart, to feel it in my soul. This beautiful contentment of who you are.
“It is the individual who knows how little they know about themselves who stands the most reasonable chance of finding out something about themselves before they die.” – S. I. Hayakawa
I always lived life by everyone else’s rules. I acted how everyone expected me to. I did what everyone else wanted me to. I lived life, not knowing who I fully was, because of everything on the surface I was doing. Didn’t feel like me. A few months back I noticed the change start to occur. I was searching for answers more in my own heart, trying to discover who I really was.
“If you don’t get lost, there’s a chance you may never be found.” – Anonymous
Last night, I found out.
I found out when I listened to a song by Britt Nicole and felt the tears well up inside of me & slowly spill over. It was one of those songs that spoke directly to my heart. It’s amazing how God talks to you. I was sitting on the couch thinking, wondering really.. who I fully was. I was already beginning to discover it. But when I found that song, he told me.
“You will recognize your own path when you come upon it, because you will suddenly have all the energy and imagination you will ever need.” – Jerry Gillies
I have a sensitive soul.
I’m compassionate & utterly passionate.
When I love it’s with my entire heart.
My heart breaks easily.
I care so much for others.
I’m gentle & kind.
I’m amazingly strong & beautifully weak.
I have a hard time trusting & an even harder time forgetting.
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” – Carl Jung
I love life.
Everything about it. From the good to the bad.
From the triumphs to the struggles.
I love to laugh, out loud & quietly.
I will smile at a stranger hoping to brighten their day.
When I trust, it’s with everything I have.
“The only journey is the journey within.” – Rainer Maria Rilke
I believe in happily ever after.
I believe I can live my dreams.
I believe in taking chances.
I believe God is amazing.
I believe in helping others.
I believe that this life is meant to be lived.
“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” – Aristotle
God’s gift to me
Seeing is believing

Coffee anyone…or maybe hot chocolate?!
(I took this picture last nigh while drinking my yummy hot chocolate and relaxing)
Not even going to lie. I cheated. This is an old outfit from a WIWW post. But It’s one that makes my heart go pitter patter.
Red & white for Christmas..well of course that works!! Throw this on with some cute white boots! Oh yes…perfect outfit! =D
Those late night, unscheduled posts where you get a glimpse into my heart
It’s okay to ask for help, so why is it so hard?
that it’s ok to ask for help.
You are not here to do it all alone. That would be crazy! Do you know how to grow rice, spin yard or make electricity? No one does it all alone. That’s why people have each other. Relying on and supporting each other is what makes the world go round. Don’t be shy about asking for help.
Who Am I?
