Loose Control

Hi. Hello. Obrigado. Aloha.. I am just passing through. Actually I have been meaning to make a post for about six months now. Hahaha. Yeah it has taken me that long. I came back to the blog but I would get distracted when I tried to create a banner that did not resize to a puny pixelated image. I tried to find tutorials and download programs that should offer support before I got frustrated and realized that I spent over two hours and still no cigar. From there I would leave the blog and continue on to NetFlix; it has been a vicious cycle. Now I am in the stage of acceptance…my banner game may never be poppin’. Anyway, I need to hash some things out in writing. On here. For myself especially, and maybe you get to come along for the ride and unearth some things from your heart as well.

Waiting…

Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.

Psalm 27:14 has been my mantra for the past couple of days. I have recited it over and over in my heart. I hum it in my mind before I go to bed. I cling to each word in desperate need of encouragement in my current walk with God. Here is the dish:

So I graduated from University (woo!) about a month ago with a fancy degree I do not like at all nor see myself actually working in. It just sounds nice when people refer to me by the adjective of my degree. It is an ego boost and it makes me really wish I actually wanted to work in this field. But I can wish until Tinker Bell comes home…the truth is: I never want to work in this field. It was horrible enough getting a degree in it, but that is another story.

In Times of Uncertainty

Hello all!

Wow so many amazing life changes have happened. For one I am a new college graduate as of yesterday, May 17. So there is no doubt I am in a big transition point in my life. Yesterday college grad, today unemployed American, next week Bolivian tourist. My life definitely feels out of whack. But I am finding inspiration and encouragement in the word and in this Hillsong United song “Oceans.” Of course it is barely a new song and has received recognition among Christians and faith bloggers alike. But I have to say this live version on Relevant has renewed the song in my heart and provided much needed insight for this period of my life: calling upon God in this time and remembering most importantly that I am His and He is mine.

Enjoy!

Enni.

Be Honest…Be Real

Hi Guys.

During a quiet time I had this past week I read a scripture that shook me.

Galatians 6:7-9 (CEV): You cannot fool God, so don’t make a fool of yourself! You will harvest what you plant. If you follow your selfish desires you will harvest destruction, but if you follow the Spirit, you will harvest eternal life. Don’t get tired of helping others. You will be rewarded when the time is right, if you don’t give up.

Wow! This scripture rebuked every part of me that was struggling this week. I struggled with my love for others. I had none. I (to be honest) wanted to punch in the face almost everyone who looked at me funny. I was seething with anger mostly because I felt hurt and insecure from continuous rejection. As a Christian we are called to constantly do good. To constantly love others. But what about when you keep getting hurt by others? What are you to do then?
