I will still write on this blog, I promise! But it probably won't have anything particularly fresh until summer.

Soo in the meantime, if you are bored or feeling like a lurk, check out my Tumblr. It's still kicking on a daily basis :)

reminder to self:

God is great and He loves you.
He also loves the world. He wants you to spread His love.
He wants you to grow and push you to become a better, more godly woman.
He wants you to put HIM first, above the boy, above materialistic things, above your career.
He wants you to spend time with Him and for you to shut up so He can speak to you.
He wants you to love your friends, family and enemies.
He wants you to be humble.
And He will let you know what He wants you to learn.

So... breathe. Just be. Just live. Search for Him in the every day and you will find Him.
Don't stress.
In the end a lot of it won't matter anyway.

Love you.

At the beginning of 2010 I sat down and envisioned what I wanted my next year at Biola to be like:

I wanted a job where I had consistent hours so I could plan my life easier. I wanted to work at the front desk of some place and be a receptionist so I could just sit and help people without having to bruise my fingers or deal with money/small children all the time (unlike my old job).

I wanted to be an officer in PRSSA because it looks fabulous on my resume and be more involved with the journalism department. I also wanted an internship in the entertainment industry. I would have loved one with a well-known company but I would take whatever I could get.

I wanted to live in a room where it was sunny and I actually had phone service.

I wanted to be ten pounds lighter.

I wanted a big group of friends I could go out and do stuff with and just have a blast without partying or doing anything like that. Just be ourselves, hang out and be comfortable with each other. A family.

I wanted to know God better and understand what He wanted for me in life and how I should be serving Him best.

I wanted to not be hurting anymore and just finally moving on.

And through God's goodness and love I actually got all of those things. Somehow. I have my front desk job with a wonderful boss and it's not easy sometimes but I like it anyway. I am very involved in PRSSA and can't wait for next year with it. I am interning with Warner Bros. Records with a wonderful department who have shown me more grace and patience than I deserve. I love my room and my floor. I am ten pounds lighter. I have my family of friends who I love to death. And I'm learning more from and about God every day and it's awesome. And I've moved on to the point where I don't feel the need to talk about it. It's just part of the past.

But here's the funny thing... I have the life I wanted. But now that I've reached this point it's time to keep pushing for more. Keep listening to God and trying to obey Him. God is dynamic. He doesn't let us sit in our lives doing whatever. He tests us and grows us and it's awesome.

I feel I'm on the brink of that. I don't know whats going to happen and I'm pretty scared but I have a feeling something is going to change and it's going to test me and it's going to turn everything upside down again.

But while I'm sitting here on this plateau and enjoying life, I want to breathe and remember God is great in the good times and in the bad times. Breathe...

And then start running towards whatever opportunities come my way.

processing

Apparently tonight's session of Missions Conference was mind blowing. But I didn't go to that, though now I wish I had.

But something happened tonight, and I feel so light, free and yet so confused. It's kind of insane. And I need to just hash it all out, process it with words. This isn't meant to be a blog. It's simply a place for me to write. So here goes...

I feel confused and tangled in doubt. Ensnared in distractions. I keep reaching out, looking up, grabbing onto the light, crying out to God. PLEASE show me your will, SHOW ME YOU ARE HERE. HELP ME FATHER GOD AND PLEASE SPEAK TO ME.

And what happens, as I utter these words, is a chaos of things. My friends laughing in their carefree way in one direction, the cute boy I met yesterday in another. My money and work troubles are ever present, the homework due, the body I hate, the food I crave, the things I lack, fear of the future, darkness, strain, jealousy, false pride, anger, hurt, confusion wells up in me. I don't feel God's presence. I feel doubt in my relationship with Him and in my own life. I feel broken. Desperate. Needy. Frustrated. Lost. I need help.

These are my thoughts. Over and over. I sing the words to the songs and hope I mean them since I don't feel it within my soul. I hear the words of truth and pray I'll remember them the next time a trial surfaces.

But nothing changes. I feel dead inside. No, not dead. Smothered. Can't breathe. Can't think. Only dark. Only pressure. Only the crushing force of self. No God. No light. No truth. No air.

Help. Me. God.

I struggle with those feelings even now as I write this.

But truth was revealed to me tonight.

I dont have to do it alone.

I don't have to be in control.

"Put Me first. Then go forth into your day."
"Love those around you. Take the time to nourish those relationships."
"Fight. I will help. Destroy the doubt. Let me show you."

Those are the things I thought tonight. And I don't know if that was God's voice or my own. But those are the things I gathered.

I prayed tonight with two beautiful women, my sisters. The ones who live down the hall. The one I've been best friends with since last year. The other recently met, and soon to be roommate.

And we prayed. We prayed for a long time. We cried, too. Loneliness. We all struggle with it in various forms. We have darkness. And it just presses down and down and we are so frustrated and done with it.

But we have God. We cried out to Him and prayed for His strength, His direction, His glory be magnified through what we go through.

By the end we all felt a burden lifted. We're still going to struggle. But we needed that release. Literally crying out to God. He hears. He answers.

Our group as a whole has felt this need to change. To be more than we are. To uplift each other as brothers and sisters in Christ. We may fail but we're going to try. It's a call. We are called. We need to answer with our everything.

That's what it means to be in fellowship. It's more than the laughter, the fro yo runs, the gym sessions, the dancing, the movies etc. We need to go deeper in our lives, in our relationship with God, and encourage one another.

Again it's hard to process everything, it's hard to process it all.

I barely know where to start.

And yet I know it's the start of something new. A revival? Maybe.

Fresh start. New thoughts. New priorities. I should say, priority, and that is God. Listening to Him. Living life as He wants it lived out.

It is SO terrifying.

But it's the only way to live.

Still processing...

I have to be up in 4.5 hours. So sleep is a must. I just need to write this out and figure it all tomorrow.

But whatever happens.

Put God first. Then go forth into the day.

This wasn't meant to be a blog entry. It's not meant to be anything. Just my jumbled, tired thoughts clumsily thrown out there.
We'll hash it out tomorrow.

Good night.

He Is Here

Today was kind of legit.

On the outside it was just a normal day: class, chapel, work, gym, homework.

On the spiritual side it was beyond awesome.

It started with morning devotions. I read John 15:1-5, the verses about being the branches and clinging to God like a vine. "Abide in Me" Scripture says. Now, the word ABIDE has been showing up everywhere lately--chapels, classes, Scripture--so I decided today would be the day I paid attention and looked up the word on dictionary.com

There are several definitions but the ones that were most applicable were to remain, to dwell in, to continue in a certain relationship/attitude, to endure.

God says to ABIDE IN HIM. To remain in, dwell in, continue serving, to endure... in Him. To abide in Him. And while I was meditating on that, I found it really hard to accept it. Yes, I want to abide in Him and listen to His words but sometimes I just don't want to listen to it all. I get tired of it. And it sucks. But I just need to keep pressing on and believing in God's love. We'll get there.

So that was the morning. Then I went to chapel. By the end there was no doubt the Holy Spirit was there. We are on the brink of Missions Conference, something that really impacted me last year. The theme this year is ABLAZE. The goal is to start a fire in our souls for what God is on fire for, and to find ways to move forth in His spirit. Yeah. Pretty awesome.

Two girls shared their stories of how they had to cast down idols [something God showed me I need to do last year], and then how listening to the Holy Spirit and His promptings from day to day can bless others and yourself. It hit home. It just did. I always get those promptings... to talk to this person, to pray for that person etc. But a lot of times I don't listen. I just tell myself to stop thinking about it, I have other things I really need to get done.

But I mean, if those promptings... if some of them are from the Holy Spirit, I really need to listen up. The Father is going to carry out His will without me or not. He doesn't need me. But if I can be a part of it, and let the Holy Spirit work through me, that's just an awesome experience. That's serving God. Glorifying Him through His own works. Wow.

And then there's the whole issue of idols. It's getting better but there are some things that get in the way of my relationship with God. But that's for another entry...

So we worshiped. And prayed. And felt the Holy Spirit saying, "These next three days will be phenomenal if you'll let me work in you."

Then I went to class. Where, wouldn't you know it, we are studying the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. Again, amazing stuff. Learning about the Spirit in relation to the Trinity. One of the final things we closed with was how the Holy Spirit provides us with specific gifts we use to do God's works. Again, the whole letting the Spirit move you and through you thing.

I still haven't really wrapped my mind around it yet, or my heart even. But I do know I felt the Holy Spirit speak to me today. God was saying it's time to break down the walls, break out of the comfort zone and let HIM take control. Let HIM do the planning, the working. I need to live and live ablaze for Him.

I need to listen to Him.

He. Is. Here.

He is everything, omnipresent, omniscient, eternal and everlasting. Glorified and holy. Invincible.

I humbly ask to partake in His will, and hopefully break down my pride, my fears, my doubts, my distractions, and simply abide in Him.

This week is going full speed ahead. Night!

cool

So, a couple days ago I was praying and this really cool vision popped into my head and I thought I would write it out.

I have a lot of things, and I care about a lot of things. I like my clothes, I like my car, I take full advantage of the parks, restaurants, Disneyland, concerts etc. that entertain me.

As I was praying I saw myself surrounded by a huge crowd of people, we were all walking and going about our lives. There were bright colors, and materialism abounded, it was just a crowded place.

But all of a sudden, it grew dim. The people faded into thin outlines of themselves and the rest of the world became a dull gray-ish blue. But it wasn't ugly. The physical features of the people had faded into nothing, but each person had a bright, warm gold heart radiating from himself.

These hearts burned like fire and emanated different qualities and patterns of flames from each person.

It reminded me of how I think God sees the world. How we, as Christians, should see the world.

Everything fades away. Nature, iphones, worries and cares, and even people. What really makes the world a substantial place to live, are the souls. Every person we pass has a story to tell, a special gift to share. It doesn't matter what they have or don't have, how annoying they are etc. Each person has a brilliant heart, a light that would burst forth if we took the time to notice.

Some lights are darker than others, and grow dim, but the point is, each person has it.

In my vision, these golden hearts remained intact within each person, but occasionally the hearts would touch each other and then streams of light, liquid gold flames and patterns would ignite.

That's what happens when friendships and relationships are formed. When we take the time to acknowledge someone, or help someone, we interact and something happens.

God tells us to love as He loved us. I can't really wrap my brain or heart around that concept and I do a pretty fantastic job of doing just the opposite of love. But this vision helped me to see how the world we live in is really nothing in the long run. It will all fade. In fact, it should be faded now. We should see the people, their hearts and their lives, as the real thing. We should see what God sees.

I want to try and actively do this. It's always hard to love the way Jesus does. But this vision really helps me to try :)

Thursday, February 24, 2011

Sitting alone in my dorm room after some serious noshing at Coldstone's with fellow PR peeps. Hearing sounds of The Eddy drifting through my windows. Attempting to do some homework before embarking on a Family Guy/Modern Family marathon. Feeling blessed by God.

This is Thursday night.

"And if our God is for us..."

School is in full swing. Working 20+ hours a week and having only 14 units is definitely a change of pace. More work, less school? woah! Sometimes it's discouraging but I know it's a great opportunity, even if it does leave me broke. There are times when I feel down; last week I just had this apathy and lethargy to life, didn't really care about anything which was scary. And this week I was kind of in a haze, working like a machine and still not caring. But God is good and He still speaks to me and helps me.

Today in my devotional I was reading Acts 8:25-32 which is weird because I had to read the same passage yesterday. Basically what the Scripture said was "For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us..." "But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience..." "For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us..." I was so encouraged, knowing that this present 'trial' is just for now, not even a long-standing one, and I should receive it in patience and with thanksgiving. Though I don't know what to pray for exactly [except tons of patience and perseverance], the Spirit knows.

When I pray, I often find myself either quoting Scripture or grabbing relevant lyrics from worship songs. I don't think of specific ones, they just come to me as I have a need. This past week, I've been singing/praying: "You make all things, work together for my good..." and "if our God is for us, then who could ever stop us, who can stand against us?" Just reminding myself of His promise to His children I guess. Anyway, I was reading Acts, and sure enough, these verses came up: "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good" and "If God is for us, who can be against us?" I was seeking encouragement and strength from God and He sent it to me in the form of my devotion! I LOVE that. I feel so alone out at work, both in faith and just in self. I feel tired. Wah wah wah. And even though I have NO RIGHT to be complaining about... anything, really, God has reached out to me and loved me and patiently reminded me of His promises and has shown me direction as to how I should be handling the situation.

God is so good. I just love how He takes the time, as the creator of the universe and everything that's in it, to reach out and actually spend time teaching us about life and helping us personally get through it all.

Happy Thursday! We're almost to the weekend.

Here we go...

Spent a fantastic weekend moving back to school and spending time with family and friends alike! Topped off the last day of freedom with dinner at The Cheesecake Factory and a girls night in -- manicures, movie, the whole shebang :) Monday is my one day to sleep in and then it's time for classes, work, internships and whatever else. I'm kind of scared for this semester. Apprehension, fear of the unknown and all that. But God is good, I am strong in Him and that's all I need to survive.

"Sea sick,

I'm scared of the ocean

Stay close, we've come this far..."


Wednesday, January 26, 2011




Sometimes it's slow, sometimes it's fast. Sometimes its fun and simple, other times you don't know what the f*ck is going on. There will be times it will scare you, times you will laugh, times you are bored, but it's always more fun when someone is there beside you :)

Discovery of the Day

I love finding new artists/bands, listening to a single and promptly falling in love with them. Since I'm more of an indie rock/alternative kind of girl, a lot of the bands I like aren't too well known, especially by my hip-hop/pop influenced friends ;)

Anyway, while watching a Burberry ad campaign I heard a song on it and I looked it up. Enter The Feeling. They aren't new, they've been around for quite a few years but I just thought I'd share their sound :)



Monday, January 24, 2011

This entry doesn't really have a direction. There was no point, no inspiration, no thought. I just felt the need to write, so we will see where this path goes.

Words. Ideals. In the end they are just objects, things that are useless unless human actions bring them to life. You can have the highest ideals in the world, and write them in the most eloquent manner onto a piece of paper, but they aren't worth much unless we actually decide to go forth and make them come to life. If Walt Disney only sketched an amusement park, wrote a beautiful description of it and dreamed the masterpiece every day, it would have amounted to nothing but fluff had he not had the courage, ambition and luck to make Disneyland come to life. If Paul had only idealized being a bold Christian and wrote his letters to the church but never delivered them, never lived his own teachings, well we probably wouldn't be reading his works. All this to say, ideals are an excellent starting place, but they are only that. It is the foundation which we build upon. Ideals lead to reality [ideally... ha.] Words helps us to form our desires and dreams and our bodies take it from there.

While browsing through my Tumblr [aka the self-centered, completely unrealistic, teenage angst/naivete/foolish-ridden blogosphere that will ruin us all], I came across a question, one that sent me into quite a bit of thought:

"Would your 8-year-old self be proud of you now?"

It is not a new question, but when I sat back to think about it, I had to wonder.

The sad truth of the matter is I'm not sure, because I can barely remember myself at that age. So I guess the answer would be, no my 8-year-old self wouldn't be proud. No one is proud of being forgotten.

But in all seriousness, think of yourself as an 8-year-old kid... For me, I distinctly remember wanting to be an artist. And a singer. I wanted to sing on stage with my electric guitar and on the side I just wanted to paint, create and make things beautiful. I wanted to go to college and drive a pretty red convertible and still have my same best friend. I REALLY wanted a pass to Disneyland and to have cool clothes and long hair. I didn't really think about my faith; I just assumed I would still be going to church and probably helping with the kids. I wanted lots of people to like me and we could be friends. I wanted to meet my prince charming-type person maybe. I wanted to be confident and fun and not be afraid of rollercoasters. I wanted to be socially unawkward and have my OWN ROOM.

So this is me now. Age 20. I still want to be a singer though I gave up on that dream before I hit high school. I still love the arts--theater, dance, music, paintings. Inspiration and the beauty others create are what moves me. Though I have not cultivated my own drawings and the like, I am content to work towards supporting those things.

I'm in college and when I was 17 I got my shiny red convertible, got tired of it by the end of a year and now have my nice but non-flashy car :) I still have my same best friend and gained a few more. I have a pass to Disneyland and have had one for the last 6 years. I don't know about having cool clothes but I like them and I do have long hair.

My faith has now become a big part of my life, I've started going to church again and I don't like kids.

I don't have lots of friends but the ones I do have are true and dear. I still have that people-complex where I need for people to like me or it stresses me out. Working on it. I still haven't met Prince Charming and when I do meet him I don't expect for him to be perfectly charming. I feel I am confident and I find life to be pretty fun. Rollercoasters are the best. I'm still socially awkward and I don't even have a room anymore, but whatever!

So I would have to say, that my 8-year-old self would look at me and say, "You made some stupid mistakes. And I don't get why you let yourself gain so much weight or why you didn't go to church for awhile. I also don't get why you did some of the things you've done or why you didn't get straight A's when you SO COULD HAVE. But you're getting there. You're trying again and that's what counts in the end. And you kept my best friend around and you also gave me a pass to Disneyland all these years. So thank you."

Although I am not the stellar, super woman I hoped I would be, I am somewhat living up to my ideals. I'm not perfect and life is not set to perfection and that is because it's impossible. But it is with relief that, after hearing that question, my childhood opinion of me as an adult is in good standing.

If ideals are worth anything they must then turn into actions.

I'm glad I was able to learn that.

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

fact about life:

If you want to achieve greatness, to see the best results possible, you need to be PATIENT. DILIGENT. STEADFAST.

You want to lose weight? Be prepared to spend at least six months in the gym, cutting down foods (gradually) and not noticing the change until a few weeks down the road. You want good grades? You work your butt off from start to finish. You want to play the piano? Dance well? Write well? Dress well? It takes practice, hard work, saving more than spending, not just for a couple weeks, but for a couple months, years, maybe even decades.

There is no quick and easy route. Life was made to be beautiful, but it was also made to be hard. It's challenges can be overcome, but only with patience and perseverance. It takes time because, as Calvin's dad would say, "it builds character." It also helps us to rely on God more than ourselves, and to see a bit of how He works.

I want to be become a better person. I want to be less selfish and focus on loving others as Christ did. I want to lose the weight and I want to get good grades. I want to deepen my relationship with God and others. But all of these things take TIME. I can start now, sure, but unless I keep going and fight hard, three months down the road, there won't be any good results. I have to keep pushing on, even when it seems like things aren't going so good.

So that's my prayer; to keep persevering, trusting in God, and not giving up, even when it gets hard. I hope I can make it to the end.

:)

January has been a whirlwind of work, old friends, the ocean, hollywood/burbank and family. Not a bad first three weeks of the year.

I've discovered quite a few new artists over the past few weeks (given my internship is all about music) but one I discovered on my own (well, via a good friend haha) is Bonnie Dune. No one knows who they are, they've only had one show, but they've got potential! Their sound isn't particularly new, but it's soothing. I've listened to this song at least twice every day:



Lately I've felt God pushing me forth into life and it's such an adrenaline rush. "Give everything you've got." Well I will try. I feel like a dam, with turbulent water and heavy rocks rolling and swelling behind me, and once I break, once I try my best, all of those things are going to come rushing out, towards a river of adventure. The swell will push me in a different direction, one I can't see. As soon as I feel settled in my life, something happens and BOOM here we go again! Well, so be it. I had this year planned out to a tee but now it's taking a different turn. I was content and happy with life and now we're going to ruffle my feathers.

But hey, God's in control of the current, I'm just along for the ride.

P.S. MLK Day was a wonderful day off of work, spent (like a true California girl would) down at the beach. As much as I want to leave the South Bay/Los Angeles area entirely, I LOVE living 15 minutes away from the beach. Living in La Mirada feels so... dry sometimes.

just need to let this out...

God is amazing.

Seriously.

He created this whole freaking universe, He knows EVERYTHING (quite literally), and He is not confined by space or time. He is. That's all that can really describe Him. Magnificent, glorious, omnipotent, and yes that's really scary.

And yet... He made us. He made this planet JUST for us. Out of all the billion stars, galaxies and planets out there, He took the time to create a place that is just suited to our needs. Venus is too gaseous, Mercury too close to the sun, Mars is too damn cold.
But Earth... is JUST close enough to the Sun to keep our blood from freezing up in our veins. Earth is JUST far enough away so that our blood won't boil.

And that's just where we live in the grand scheme of things. That's putting aside our very beings. Anyone who has studied even a smidgen of the human body can see that we are complicated (and I'm not talking about the emotional wrecks we make of ourselves here). Our cells, our millions of cells... our brains... the way we just learn things. Our innate sense of language. How every person, no matter the culture or background yearns for love. How God gave us the Earth, and then gave us the abilities to create things: homes, clothing, cars, the freaking iPhone. He let us discover the wonders of this world with the things we made.

It's kind of funny how man has made millions of things and how many of these things reflect God in His infinite glory. We created the microscope--we see how intricately God made us. Man created airplanes--we use them to fly around the world spreading the Gospel. Man created the printing press, ink, words, sentences... we communicate, encourage, and praise God with those things!

But seriously. God is this great huge really the only thing that matters kind of guy, and yet He made us, and then (despite our screwups), invites us to come into His home. He offers His love, protection, guidance and spiritual fulfillment. He took the TIME to do that for us. The whole reason we were made is to glorify Him, because He loves that.

Sometimes I get a little rebellious and think, "Yeah, God gets all the glory but I want to live my life for me too!" But then I realize, God kind of made the world. He's kind of the reason I exist, the reason I'm able to have these free thoughts, the reason I'm alive... Of COURSE my whole life should revolve around Him. He's my creator. My existence. God built in us (every single human being) a desire to worship. Something. Anything. But really, we are meant--destined--to worship HIM and show HIM Glory. And He, in turn, not because He has to but because He wanted to, gave us love, joy, peace, community with each other and with Himself.

That is what it means to be human, an image of God. To reflect His glory, to glorify God and to live lives completely devoted to Him. Wow. God's awesome. It's not like He just made us and then disposed of us into the world to live blindly. He created us, then provided us with GUIDANCE and an AWARENESS of His presence right away. He didn't just forget about us. That's crazy! This God who made this universe and exists above everything else STILL knows each and every person by NAME. He's everything. He knows me personally, and yet still makes the world go 'round.

That humbles me and blows me away.

I'm not perfect. I sin all. the. time. I'm selfish, I haven't had my devotions in ages, I didn't pay attention in church, I cussed out a guy who cut me off on the freeway, I'm still a little wild... it goes on and on and on.
My life does not always revolve around God. In fact, it rarely does. My life doesn't glorify God a LOT.

But He still loves me. I am still a part of His kingdom.

And I feel His love deep in my soul. I feel His calling for me. And that always brings me back to His ways.

I'm going to mess up, but man, I'm so glad that I have Jesus Christ as my center in this world, so that no matter how badly I screw it up, I can start over with Him.

(500) Days of Summer

Can I just say how much I adore this movie?
I first saw it on Valentine's Day 2010 and promptly grew infatuated.
I can't put a finger on WHY I like it so much. I can only say that the mix of fashion, dialogue, Joseph Gordon-Levitt/Zooey D and the soundtrack easily put me into a blissful state of entertainment.
Gotta love it.

All this to say, I've been listening to the soundtrack for the past week. Again.
Enjoy :)
