Unsure



                 So, right now, I'm kind of unsure of the direction of this blog. I'm unsure of what it should be about, what I want it to be about, how I want to do it, if I want to change it up. I'm not sure. I'll try and update you as soon as I can, but that may not be as soon as you hope. 

Love,
Kelsey :)

Bleah Briann

              This is Bleah. Bleah Briann actually. I've mentioned her a few times before in previous posts, but she deserves a full post.

              Let me start by saying, Bleah Briann runs a blog called Lovely. It's one of my favorite blogs and has been for a long time. She's actually one of my blogging inspirations. She's got a fantastic blog.

             Awhile back Bleah stopped blogging, for whatever reason, and I was, needless to say, extremely sad. But, she's back!! I'm so happy to see her posts coming up on my dashboard again.

            Bleah is a writer, an artist, a truly wonderful blogger. So go check her out!!! (Please)

It's time for some honesty

                                                            (My apologies for the computer screen in my lenses)


                  I think the time has come that I be completely honest with everyone. Completely honest.
 
                  I've said numerous times over the past few years that I forgot about this little blog and I know how awful of an author I am. I've apologized over and over and over and never really told the truth.  Because the truth is, I never forget about this blog of mine. It's something I think about quite often, actually.

                 My problem with blogging, or lack thereof, is that I can't seem to put the words I want to say into a post that makes sense. I feel like I have so much to say, but can never find the right words to use. And I guess it's partially those insecurities all of us blogging gals have where we think that our posts will never be good enough. Or that they'll just seem like a jumbled up mess of nonsense. Or even that nobody cares. I guess that's why I've made a decision.

              I'm no longer going to blog for me.

              For the past four and a half years I've blogged with the intention of getting something out of it. That something? I have no idea what it is. Maybe it's to feel like a few people like me or a few people actually want to read what I have to say. But it can't be about that anymore. It can't be for me anymore. It's got to be for Him.

            I don't know exactly what that means. It could mean a change in the way I blog, or it could mean a whole blog redo. I don't know for sure. But I'd love it if you'd stick around to see where this new blogging journey will take me.

 Love,
Kelsey :)

Sometimes...

 
 
                                              (New glasses! I've never had them before).

  •              Sometimes... I wonder if life will ever stop going by so fast. As each year passes, the next seems to go by faster and faster.
  • Sometimes... I wish I were a social butterfly and could talk to people. Then again, sometimes I wish I didn't talk as much as I do.
  • Sometimes... I want to scream. Scream so loud that my throat hurts, just because the world frustrates me.
  • Sometimes... I wish I didn't have so much when someone else in this world doesn't.
  • Sometimes... I wonder why God cares so much. Wonder why he bothered saving me. There are seven billion other people in this world. Why would he care about little old me? Then, I remember, because it's Him. Because we don't always understand Him, but He always understands us.
  • Sometime... I think about wearing matching socks just because maybe then I'd seem more normal. Or something like that. Then I don't because that's just not who I am.
  • Sometimes... I think I'm not cut out for this whole blogging thing. Because there are bloggers who are better writers than I am, or better at keeping up with their blog than I am.
  • Sometimes... I wish I could just be a regular teenager. Then I remember I'm not regular. I'm not normal. I don't do everything the same as everyone else does. And I think I'm okay with that.
  • Sometimes... I have nothing to post about and want to post, but can't because I have no inspiration. If that makes any sense at all.
                                               Love,
                                               Kelsey :)

He's bigger than we could ever imagine

           


 
 
So, I know I haven't posted since February 18th. There have been computer issues,
a lack of inspiration on my part, etc. But, I'm back. I'm excited to be back because I have quite a few great ideas for some upcoming posts.
 
So recently, in January, some church friends invited us to come to their home group/
Bible study on Friday nights. We've been going for a little over a month now and I'm really enjoying it. We're about to start a study on the book of Romans.
 
But today, I want to talk about what happened this past Friday. Some people weren't
able to be at home group, so we put off starting Romans for a week. Instead, we watched some Louie Giglio videos. Now, I had never heard of this guy. We watched his Indescribable video from when he was on tour with Chris Tomlin. It was amazing! He really showed a lot of amazing pictures of stars, galaxies, and just space in general. It was so cool.
 
In the Indescribable video, he really talked a lot about how God is way bigger than
we think, or can even imagine! It really had me thinking. The first thought that came to mind though, was, if God's so big, then why don't we believe he can do the impossible? Why can't we believe that he's bigger than any of us? Now, some of these images and statistics Louie Giglio shared really made me feel tiny in this world of such hugeness. Which makes it all the more amazing to think that God loves us and cares about each of us individually. Us tiny little specks on this tiny little earth.
 
I feel like I really struggle with trying to trust God in the hard times. Because,
I guess I just feel like he either has bigger problems to deal with or the situation I'm in is hopeless. But is it really ever hopeless? Really? I don't think so.
 
Love,
Kelsey :)
