I wrote a couple days for FBC Tifton's Advent Devo and wanted to share the devo on here. Here's what I wrote for 11/30! Monday, November 30 Romans 1:16-17 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes.” The word “gospel” means [...]
I posted this on my personal Facebook a couple days ago, but I felt like I wanted to include this on my blog as well. I also had some more to add as I felt like I couldn't cover exactly everything I feel on a Facebook post without it being thousands of words long.
This is not the condensed version. And I want to preface this with the fact that I do not have all the right words to say. I am a 23-year-old white woman who has a whole lot to learn when it comes to racism and my privilege. But I want to voice my feelings and my concern and so this is it.

Today's blog is a little different, a little shorter. I'm taking Bob Goff's Writing Course, and I wrote this after we were given our first assignment. So here it is: I looked over at my dog, Cosby, 65 pounds of fur and love, and I knew what was coming next. It always starts out as [...]

In this moment when it feels like so much has been stripped from us, maybe we can take this time to prune what is around us with a purpose to get a better glimpse of Jesus.
Would I be scared if I could see the whole picture now? I journaled those words a couple months ago, thinking about what the future could look like. Would I want to know the details or is it really the Lord's protection and provision that I do not know what lies ahead? This was long before COVID-19, so these words have taken on a new meaning.
