Following the Call Despite Change

Being broken is not something I enjoy. I have had a lot of change in my life in the past 4 months. I lost the comfort of a place I use to call my home away from home and I moved away from everything and everyone I knew to a small town in Missouri. I started a new job that was emotionally, physically and spiritually draining, and I was at the end of my tolerance for change. I went through the emotion of being mad at God, mad at myself, mad at others, and it got me nowhere. I let my emotions run rapid because I was broken, and I didn’t know what to do with it. I felt lost in a place with no support system or comfort of my own. I didn’t know who I was or what I was supposed to do. I felt called to leave and come Missouri, but I didn’t feel like I was following what God had intended. Which in turn caused me to think less of myself.

45 Things You Can Do When You Are Tempted

As humans, we are all inclined to sin because of our sinful nature. Different people have different temptations. For a lot of men, porn and sex are strong temptations. For an alcoholic seeking sobriety, drinking is a strong temptation. For somebody who has depression, the temptation to cut may be present. Temptations are most strong when one is tired, bored, or stressed out. There is a way to overcome the temptation. 1 Corinthians 10:13 says “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it” (NIV). The temptation will pass, but you have to find an alternative way to occupy your time.

The Call To Steward Creation

In this season of plastic free July, I am reminded of one of the first calls of Christianity: to take care of the planet. Now this may seem like a made-up idea that is used to push the agenda of the trend of being eco-friendly, but this is an actual issue for the Christian nation. In Genesis, God calls Adam and Eve to take care of the land and the animals that was provided for them.

Picture of Perfection

As a new writer for this blog, I contemplated what I wanted to write about. As most, if not all of you, don’t know who I am, the only decent thing is to introduce myself. I am a current senior at Grand Canyon University, graduating in April with a Bachelors in sociology and a minor in biblical studies. If you read my bio it has some general statements about me like I’m from San Diego, I have four siblings, and I love children. Those are all nice things but who is the real Sabrina? The things I struggles with or what experiences made me who I am today? What is my identity?
