Update… Thing

Well… It’s been a while (insert facepalm emoji here). Sorry about that. But I’m back!!! 

What have I been up to? Honestly, not that much. I’ve been pretty lazy. However, I plan to start posting again and I’ve already got a post for next week! 

There are a few new things though!

Where to begin? Let’s start with the changes to my website. I adjusted a few tiny things (if you wanna consider the color scheme change “tiny”). I’ve also taken out some of the pages and added a new one! So what’s up with that? First, It was time for a change. Second, you’ll notice a new tab labeled “Podcast” It’ll bring you to a new page with some of our podcast’s info on it. Check it out for yourself! Also, I didn’t feel the need to keep the other pages since they are not visited often and don’t serve much of a purpose since I don’t talk about all those topics anymore. However, I left “Songs” and “Life Lessons”. Anything I post that doesn’t fit in those categories will simply stay put in “Posts”.

Yup! I started a podcast with my best friend, CoCo. She is amazing, guys. Literally… I don’t know what I’d do without her… probably explode. (Okay, that’s a little extreme cause God would see me through. But you get the point) Check out her blog, band, and our podcast! God is doing great things through all of those and we want to give glory to Him. We don’t do these things for views or likes but for the praise of our Lord!! Lets thank Him for what He has done!

So yeah! We started a podcast and CoCo and I have been having a lot of fun planning that. We wish we could go on for hours sometimes but we also like to keep our episodes around 20 minutes (Sometimes they go longer though XD)

What else? I’ve been plugging away at my online school. It’s been a little tough here and there but my teachers are really nice and supportive!

Oh!! I got a writing mentor for my fiction work. He’s actually my pastor which is sooooo cool! I’m so thankful for him and all the work he does. If you’re reading this Mr. Massey, I’m praying for you guys and our church! Thank you for guiding people to our Savior and for all the good things that you put your time into! 

I’ve also established a pretty steady habit of reading straight from the Holy Word of God every morning and evening. Let me say, it’s awesome guys. You NEED to read the Word every day! You need to hear from God! You can’t survive solely on podcasts and devotionals. You need to go to the source. And if you find it overwhelming, I’d suggest starting with a short book like Ephesians. Man! That one is soooo good. You could stay in that book for months without getting bored. There’s a lot to get out of it! I’d also recommend 2 Corinthians(which is longer but still good). I’ve been reading and re-reading chapters over and over and there’s always something new. Like Hebrews 4:12 states, 

“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.”(ESV)

It is “living and active”!! You can never stop learning and getting more out of the Word. It will meet you wherever you’re at. Keep your heart and mind open and ask God for guidance before reading. It refreshes the soul. It is like a cold glass of water on a hot summer day. Take the glass of Living Water. You won’t go thirsty again.

(Getting off topic now… heh) So, yeah! That’s pretty much what I’ve been up to! Christ has been keeping my family safe and healthy and I pray that you are all well too! 

I want to encourage you with one last thing before I go. I want to give you these verses because the world is crazy right now and it’s hard to tell what’s what.

“Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.” 1 John 4:1 (ESV)

“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.” Ephesians 6:11 (ESV)

Keep your eyes peeled. Stay in the Word. And most of all, pray. Pray for safety and discernment. Pray for peace and understanding. God has got your back, guys. All you have to do is repent of your sins, believe that Jesus died for them, and follow Him. That’s all.

(P.S. If you guys like podcasts or Youtube videos I highly, HIGHLY recommend this guy! Jack Hibbs is an awesome Evangelical preacher. Literally every time my dad puts on his videos, I come out of my room like I’m magnetized and can’t help but listen. It’s great!! Go check him out pleaseeee. He is preaching what we need these days. His Website, Youtube, Podcast)

Praying for you all!
