Having options…. is nice. Deciding that even though you have those options available, you want to hold out for something more suited to you…. is nice. The fact that you finally value yourself enough so that settling is no longer an option….is nice.
Things I’ve lost down the bathroom sink drain: 1 Lia Sophia ring 2 toothpaste caps 1 bobby pin
There’s a peace I’ve come to know. Though my heart and flesh may fail, there’s an anchor for my soul. I can say, “It is well”. Jesus has overcome and the grave is overwhelmed. The victory is won. He is risen from the dead. And I will rise when He calls my name. No more sorrow, no more pain. I will rise on eagle’s wings before my God, fall on my knees and rise. I will rise (I Will...
If I’m not pointing people to Jesus then I’m wasting my life.– Aaron Gillespie (via savedbymercyandgrace)
This was copied from Mike Donehey’s blog: http://Mikedonehey.tumblr.com “They exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator…” -Romans 1:25 I grew up thinking Jesus wanted to ruin my good time. No seriously… Everything I wanted to do, it seemed like Jesus was always telling me I couldn’t. My friends would get drunk and party;...
theprobablestars: I came across these 8 dating principles for girls who want to honor God in their relationships. Regardless of your views on dating/courting, I found them to be good reminders to look at things through God’s perspective . Also, one principle includes a “don’t stalk. It’s creepy.” Which I thought was important (; Love this article!

“I confessed _______ to _______ and it was the worst decision I have ever made!” Was it really the worst decision you’ve ever made? Or do you just feel that way because of the way someone reacted? I think that whenever you come out with a truth, it’s ALWAYS a good decision. The bible says the truth shall set us free. Do yourself a favor and stop hiding and pretending....
But people say, “Oh, I just want to follow my heart.” Don’t. Guard your heart.– Mark Driscoll (via hellomoon)
The Old Rugged Cross
Oh, that old rugged cross so despised by the world Has a wondrous attraction for me For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above To bear it to dark Calvary So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross Til my trophies at last I lay down I will cling to the old rugged cross And exchange it some day for a crown

I sang a song all by myself at church last night. That was a big step for me. I’m glad I decided to take my heels off because otherwise I might have shaken right out of them. I was so incredibly nervous. A little background: Music has always been a big part of my life. My grandmother played piano and organ for her church. She was also paid to play for the evening crowd at fine dining...
So I’ll stop searching for the answers I’ll stop praying for an escape And I’ll trust You, God with where I am And believe that You will have Your way #HaveYourWay #BrittNicole

corycopeland: I hold a grudge like you wouldn’t believe. Like, I’m still upset about something that happened in 2nd grade and I’m almost twenty-seven. It’s a small part of me that I don’t particularly like, but it’s always been there, resting in my heart. And even though I’ve tried my hardest to correct it,… I dig this. Word. It’s me.
Dad: You know, Vic, I think I’m going to set you up with this guy. He’s the brother/cousin/friend/step-neighbor-in-law* of a guy I work with. He’s great! He’s a couple years older than you; around 30, I think. Never been married. He works with computers. He’s kind of a loner. Me: Really, Dad? Haven’t we been down that road before? *exact quote unknown
Chris Farley, Eli & Jesus
There is an old Saturday Night Live skit featuring Chris Farley where he plays “Matt Foley” the unlikely motivational speaker; hired by the worried parents of a teenage boy and girl. Matt warns the youngsters to get their life together and on track, otherwise they will end up like him “…livin’ in a van down by the river”. This skit came to mind this morning...

Have Your Way - Britt Nicole
“So I’ll stop searching for the answers I’ll stop praying for an escape And I’ll trust You God with where I am And believe that You will have Your way Just have Your way Just have Your way” I get discontented easily. I am too quick to focus on the things I DO NOT have instead of the things that I do have. Recently, I was having a rough night. I hit shuffle on my...

the colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky are also on the faces of people going by I see friends shaking hands saying ‘how do you do’ they’re really sayin’ I love you And I think to myself… What A Wonderful World
When you get in the car and your favorite song just started playing… When your friends call or text “just to say hey”…. When you deeply appreciate every blessing God has given… That’s the kind of day I’m having today. :)
You’re the music of my heart The melody within my soul The song that holds me in the dark The fire that warms me when I’m cold You’re the symphony that calms my fears The lyric that I long to hear The masterpiece, the work of art Complete before I start The music of my heart
Update/Prayer Request for Baby Jack (vlog)
Every experience offers a life lesson IF you take the time to learn it. And no, it’s not that “People are jerks.” …let’s look a little deeper. ;)
I got baptized tonight! I know what you’re thinking…”Victory, you are JUST NOW getting baptized?!” Yes. Yes, I am. Dad seemed to think I got baptized when I was a kid, but if I did, I don’t remember it. I got saved when I was 8 years old and it seems like I would have…but I just don’t remember. Now that I am an adult and have made the permanent...
