Despite every part of me being absolutely terrified to do it, I finally did the thing….I followed a few people on WordPress. A lot of people would laugh at this, but it’s actually a really nerve wracking thing for me … Continue reading
“You have to write about what they want to talk about.” I’ve been doing a ton of SEO stuff on a website for work lately. So to get into the zone, I was listening to lectures about the newest improvements … Continue reading
Why Would you want to ruin your SEO? Because you don’t want to be found easily. Simple as that. I use my blog as a personal online journal that my boss or family can’t find. It’s personal therapy for me … Continue reading
Chicago is overwhelming enough for me. The sights, the sounds, and constant stream of voices and activity between people, technology, and landscape. It’s practically an artwork of it’s own, one that I have grown to love, but at a respectful … Continue reading
I’ve been struggling lately with this concept of Imago Dei. For those of you unfamiliar with the term it’s Latin for “In God’s Image” and is a concept all Christians are taught at usually a pretty young age, mainly because … Continue reading

I fail so much when it comes to my faith, and I continually find myself grateful that I have a God who redeems such failings, and yet in me is a pride that I struggle to let go: the pride of not forgiving myself.
I am so prone to this, and even in my actions of prayerfully confessing all of my sins to the God I claim to love know forgives if only I ask, I struggle so profoundly and deeply with this issue. I have assurance, and yet, I fail to see it. I have security and yet I choose not to feel it or experience it. It’s a foolish sin, I know. A foolish thing to claim freedom in faith, and in the same breath struggle to claim it at all. Yet, it’s so human.
So I ask for prayer for this, from whoever is willing to take a moment and do so on my behalf. Thank you.
What are my emotions worth if all they are,
is the result of my imperfect perception
possibly misinterpreting what I have heard?
We are clearly emotional beings,
because everyone has feelings.
Yet, I find myself grappling with this question,
because I find that so much in my life depends
on my emotions.
How can it be though?
When nearly all my emotions are through a lens of
imperfection, misinterpretation, and misinformation,
how is it that emotions
end up being the deciding factor for most things?
What good are they when they are more likely to be
misdirected, misunderstood, and misguided?
As if there isn’t enough pressure They demand poets come up with New ways to measure Each other like we’re Some kind of competition And that puts the poet In an awkward position Because last time I checked My feelings … Continue reading
