Friendship

No, I am not going to talk about the musical, “Anything Goes.” But whenever someone says the word “friendship,” I often think of this song because in high school I played in the pit orchestra for that musical, and it was a funny song that I enjoyed when playing in orchestra. But anyways, I am not here to talk about musicals, but about actual friendship. I have been so blessed by God to have the […]

Out Of Control

I feel like most people don’t like being told what to do. That is because people like to be in control of their life, and to be able to make choices. I am this way too. I usually feel uncomfortable when big decisions in my life are out of my control. I am even bad about not being in control of small things. For example, I like when plans are set in stone. I usually […]

Singleness

Singleness. If you asked most people, they probably would say that living a life of singleness isn’t their first plan for their life, and also and option that doesn’t seem to appealing. And that totally makes sense. Growing up, I always expected that someday, I would grow up, get married, and have a family. And that is not a bad thing. In fact, that is probably what is in store for many people’s lives, and […]

Struggling With Homosexuality

This is a topic that is very controversial. Most people have a position on the matter. It is also one of the only topics that whenever it is brought up, I tend to avoid contributing to the conversation. That is because I have a personal connection to this topic. I struggle with homosexual attraction, and I have for most of my life. Because of this, I am currently and plan to live a celibate life […]

Not Alone

While looking back recently, I am reminded of a song that got me though a lot of the tougher days over the past few years. That song is “Not Alone” by the band Red. I remember hearing it once on the radio and thinking it was a good song, and pulling out my phone to find out the name so I could look it up again later. When I got home I remember taking it […]

Looking Back

Looking back is always interesting, and especially now at this point in my life. It has been almost three and a half years since I graduated high school and started going to college. And in some ways, it feels like less time, and others it feels like so much longer. For example, when I hear music that I played in orchestra, a lot of it I remember super well and it seem like it was […]

White as Snow

For the last week or so, I have been thinking a lot about this song. It talks about the cleansing powers of Jesus in your life, even when you mess up, even when you don’t feel like you deserve forgiveness for the things you have done, and more. It is a weird concept, but I have found time and time again in my life where I find there truly is a difference between believing something […]
