Hello everyone! I hope you're having a fantastic day! This is random but something that normally makes me feel rejuvenated and re-inspired is listening to a good inspirational podcast. One of my absolute favorites that I listen to on Spotify is the 'Whoa That's Good Podcast', which is hosted by literally my life role model and inspiration, Sadie Robertson. I won't get into her whole story right now but here's her team's website. The episode I was listening to was about finding happiness in everything, and something that she said really stuck out to me. Sadie said that instead of being a 'glass half-full' or 'glass half-empty' kind of person, remember that Jesus is a full glass. I don't remember her exact wording but it really stuck out to me because how true is that! Jesus is our source of true joy, and you can literally find Him in everything, good or bad. :)
This school year I want to truly show Jesus's love to others, whether that's through big or small things. For the first time since 6th grade I will be going to a non-catholic school and I normally don't get into my faith a lot on here, but I really feel like God is calling me to share more about my faith and I have this unique platform to be able to share my thoughts on.
Honestly, I feel like the start of the school year always brings on these weird 'season of waiting' vibes and you can't tell whether you should be excited or nervous. This quote that I saw on Pinterest really inspired me and I hope it inspires you too!
"How foolish we have been to think we could map out our futures more perfectly than the one who arranged the stars in the sky. He raised the forest and hung the sun and gave us music and oceans and laughter. He made them all from dust, from scattered atoms so tiny we cannot fathom them at all. We cannot make sense of it. But he takes all the tangled, tattered threads of our stories, whirling furiously in opposite, random directions, and knits them together, resolves them. A masterpiece from the mess. He is the weaver, the writer, the artist, the mapper, the creator, the lover.
He is the Father.
He is God."
I feel like that quote really just sums up the complete control that God has over our lives. What a great God!
Okay, wow, that went really deep there but I hope you enjoyed and that that somehow inspired you in some way. I hope you have a great rest of your day! xD
