Back To School, Now What?

If you’re me, then you’re excited about going back to school because it’s your Senior Year and there’s so much you’re looking forward to.

However, I think it’s necessary to set some goals for ourselves because before we know it, the year will be over.

  1. God First.

Yes, I know this is a cliche, “Instagram bio” statement but it reigns true and must actually be lived out instead of saying it because it sounds like the right thing to do. Once you get in the rhythm of class work, actual work, and community/campus involvement it can be easy to lose sight of where all your time is going. Last year, this Continue reading “Back To School, Now What?”

Three Tips to Ensure Quality Time with God in School/College

I know I’m not the only one who tends to get “busy” with small yet tedious tasks that my alone time with God begins to decrease little by little.

In my previous post, I briefly mentioned the direction that God was taking me in terms of my education and because of that my brain just like super-focused on things like sending this email, attending this meeting, submitting this assignment, etc…

Small right? Yet, those things were taking up a lot of my time. How? The time that I had was being filled up with those tasks and before I knew it, my day was pretty much gone and it was on to the next day. This is what I like to call, Auto-pilot mode.

Instead of planning and taking control of my time, my time was pretty much controlling me. I was going with the flow and not really being purposeful about where my time was going. As a result, my quality time with God decreased and my fire and hunger for Him wasn’t growing.  This is why I want to briefly talk about a few things that are essential to make sure you are spending necessary time with God.  Continue reading “Three Tips to Ensure Quality Time with God in School/College”

Life Update: My plans for writing and sharing my journey :)

Hey ya’ll!

So I have not posted any blogs in a while because for the past few weeks God has been leading me to focus on progressing in my academics and fulfilling my responsibilities at my school. In order to be consistent in my writing, I would have had to plan accordingly but ya girl has not done so. Also, I want my writing to be Spirit led and not write just to write.

I don’t want to just be a writer or a blogger. I want my writing and my words to come from God and to be an instrument that He uses to touch the hearts of His people to encounter Him.

Now, I feel stirred to post more content as I’m led by the Lord. It was one of my goals at the beginning of 2018 and I’m so happy that God is still keeping this dream alive lol!

I’m also here to serve you all as my audience, so if there’s anything in particular that you would love to know or read about please feel free to shoot me a DM or post a comment. I’d love to hear about it and God-willing address it 🙂

With love,

Gabby

The Beauty of Singleness

There was a time in my life when I just could not stand being single. Actually, I was in two very unique positions. I didn’t want to be single and I was doing everything I could to be in a relationship with an ex. Once God healed me from the ties from that relationship, I still didn’t want to be single. However, I couldn’t do anything about it because I knew that I wasn’t going to be settling for just any available guy and I knew that God wanted me to be single even if I couldn’t stand it. Maybe you can relate?

Chi Alpha Southeast SALT Conference 2017 – My Experience

This past weekend I had the privilege of attending a Salt conference with my Chi Alpha family in Knoxville, Tennessee. There’s just something about a gathering of believers worshiping one God, and hearing His word being spoken in a way that resonates with everyone in the room. I arrived one way and I am leaving refreshed, revived, and ready.
