INTRODUCING: Wow Nice! Productions

Long story short: I’m currently taking time off from school for a multitude of reasons–and God is helping me use this time to further discover His plans for me.  I will be focusing a lot on photography and being happy 🙂  But, I’m still living in my college town, surrounded by my friends…who are all students.  So, while they do homework, I don’t.

On a recent occasion, my friends invited me to the library to join them as they did homework.  Ummm, let me think–I wouldn’t go to the library if I had homework, so I said….”no.”  But seeing my boredom, my beautiful friend (and Twin) told me that my assignment was to write a song about her.  So I did.  And I posted it on Facebook…for all the world to see.  Surprised, they dared me to do another…this time I had to rap for another friend.  And again, I delivered.

Moral of the story: Don’t think I won’t 🙂  And, as a result, another friend of mine told me to put them on YouTube.  Being the shy, timid girl that I am (but of course that all goes away after you get to know me!), I brushed the idea off quietly.  However, this friend knows all about YouTube and has watched enough on it to know that I should upload them.  I don’t want to boast, but she essentially told me that I have what it takes.  Again, I’m not so sure.  I guess the only way to find out is to try.  So…

Presenting, for the first time: Wow Nice! Productions

So please, go watch…leave a comment if you’d like 🙂

Here’s to my new endeavor and another week–Happy Monday!

Failing is…okay?

Failing is never fun, at least from my experience.  Recently, I failed; I made a mistake that I’ve made far too many times before…a lesson that you’d think I’d have learned by now.  But apparently not.

As the feeling of failure set in, very slowly, I began to beat myself up for allowing myself to fail.  I almost hated myself.  How many times can one person make the same mistake over and over again?!?

But in that moment, God spoke to my heart:

“Have you not realized that you live in an imperfect world?  I don’t expect you to be perfect…in fact, you will never ‘be’ perfect because IN MY EYES, YOU ALREADY ARE.  NOTHING you can/will do will ever change my opinion of you, my perfect daughter.  I have planned every moment of your life, including the mistakes you have/will make—that’s right, you WILL make more.

Mistakes are an important ingredient in your life because from them you will learn right from wrong.  So, please do not be upset at the mistakes you have made.  Learn from them—become empowered to change!  Every day I give you is a new opportunity to be the person that I have created you to be—you don’t have to do anything special, just be yourself.  Accept the mistakes you have made for they too are a part of you and what makes you special.

You can conquer your mistakes by learning from them.  Although it may seem difficult at first, know that I am always by your side and will never leave you to fend for yourself.  So the next time you feel a tug between you and the world, seek me—PRAY!  I will always be here to listen to you and help you.

So…apparently failing is okay?

It can be so hard to understand.  But yes, failing is okay.  I have since forgiven myself of my mistake and have found my spirit to be happier than ever knowing that I can over come it!

God has an amazing ability to bring JOY into our life, if we let Him!!!  So LET HIM!  Don’t ‘try’ to stop Him by hanging onto guilt…because we all know that He will find away around our petty walls we build.

What has God been telling YOU lately?  Maybe you should take a moment to listen…because, He’s always there…in your heart ❤

God is in the small stuff

Ever had a bad day at work?  Yeah…I had two in a row last week.  It was the worst.  Everything seemed to irritate me and I just wasn’t myself.  I brought the negativity home with me and had even vented it out on my friend…but that still didn’t help my frustration.

However, my perspective changed when I drove home from work later that week.  In an almost audible tone God reminded me that I am not perfect.  I live in a fallen world.  I will not always be patient.  I will never be satisfied here.

Having a bad day is going to happen…but should I let it hurt my spirit?  No.  These bad days are here to remind us of what lies ahead…a perfect eternity.  Think about it, if I was always patient and happy and satisfied here on earth, what would I have to look forward to?  Nothing.  Heaven wouldn’t seem like the paradise it was created to be.  Why…my time on earth should be a crappy time!

I have a tattoo on my wrist, ‘2 Corinthians 4:16-18‘ :

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

We are all wasting away, day by day.  Some days, we waste away more than others…last week I was speed wasting.  But, at the same time…I was being renewed (and I didn’t even know it!)!  God was giving me those bad days as a way to make me draw closer to Him and depend on Him more.  He was helping me renew my spirit.

The best part?  The next day I had the best day at work.  Ever.  I honestly couldn’t think of one bad thing about my day.  It was amazing.  God is so good.

So the next time you have a bad day don’t pour out your negativity on those around you…who’s it going to benefit?  Only the devil.  God is always in the small stuff…even the bad.
