What if...

Too many times people have the "what if" disease. Why do we wonder what could be if other things had happened. "What if I would have dated that person..." STOP. What good do "what ifs" do? God placed you where you are for a REASON. He knows the best plans for you, and whether you do everything that is in His will or not, He will make sure that you are taken care of. God also placed our eyes in the front of our body, not the back...there's a reason for that, it's because we are supposed to look to the future, not dwell on the past. Even though things change, and not everything goes as planned..there is no reason to look back and wish things were different or even wonder why they are the way they are. Just go with the flow. Ease up, people. You have one life to live...why is everyone so insistent on ruining it by thinking of things that happened in the past? This has been on my mind over the past few days, I had to get it out somewhere..and where better than here? I hope this opens people's minds...and I also hope this doesn't offend anyone.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." --Jeremiah 29:11

That verse may be one of the most used verses of all time, but I found it very fitting.

Fast Times at Arkansas Tech

I just knew I would be the worst at remembering to write on my blog. With that said, my mind is totally wrapped around a few things this past week. 1. Valentine's Day/Anniversary with Sean 2. Weight Loss 3. College. I like to think I'm a really sweet girlfriend and I am gonna do something so sweet for Sean(He's also the best boyfriend ever). I've lost 7 pounds thus far and I do not plan on stopping anytime soon. College....well, it's college. Booooo. This week has been good. I'm so blessed to have the people I have in my life & a God that never fails me. I really don't have too much to say this time. (weird, right?) Anyways, I'll leave you with some scripture.

"Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves." --Romans 12:10
