How Can We Comprehend?

Through Your death, death has lost.
Through Your blood, we are saved by the cross
How can I ever comprehend?
'Cause through Your pain, there was victory.
By a plan we could not see.
And now we wait for the time,
You will descend.
And now I wait for the day,
I will ascend.
"For He was pierced for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities. On Him, was the chastisement that brought us peace. And by His wounds we are healed."  Isaiah 53
Remember what Jesus for you, today and always.

5 Little Things I Can't Live Without

Why, hello. Before I say anything, I want to say a late public thank you to Allie at Sincerely Ally for making this amazing new blog design for me! Allie has great talent and it was so nice of her to put time into my blog. Be sure to check out her blog.

To keep me in check, I've decided to try to post every other Thursday since that I usually don't have to do much that day. Thanks so much for having patience and not un-following me.

Not much has changed since you last heard from me, so I won't go into another introduction. Instead, I'm going to talk about the little things I can't live without, which is an unusual list.

1. Library cards. Whoever came up with the idea of a library, I love you. You might know that I am still a committed bookworm, but I am also a broke bookworm. I don't have the money to buy all the books I want because, well, that would cost more money that my college fund. But the library is a place of endless possibilities. I can basically request any book I want from any library and they come usually within a week. Even new releases, though those tend to take longer. Right now, I am in the middle of reading a few high-anticipated new release without a dollar out of my pocket. How cool is that?

2. Spotify. For years, I relied on Youtube for most of my music, until I discovered Spotify. It took time, but I got over Taylor Swift taking her music out of it. Now we have it on computer so we don't have to shuffle it anymore. My need for Spotify is similar to my need for library cards. If I bought all the music I enjoyed, I'd be in debts by thousands.

3. Oreos. I adore this cookie, but we don't buy them often, so it's always the best treat. I was able to  buy a family pack in honor of Mid-Terms week and they helped me a lot. The double-stuffed are my favorite:)

4. Flash-drives. You know, the little thing you use to move your documents to different computers? If I didn't have those, my writing life would be destroyed, plus a lot of assignments would be overdue. I don't want the thing is with me and flashdrives, but every time I get a nice one, it breaks. Last Christmas, I got a sturdy one and I learned that you can name your flash-drives. Mine came from a brand called "Gorilla" so I named it George. George the Gorilla. I am so clever like that.

5. Pockets. I am not a purse person. I carry around books, not purses. Besides, I have no idea what how'd I'll fill it up anyway since I still don't wear makeup. So obviously, pockets come in handy for me, to keep library cards and flashdrives, ironically.

There you go! What are some little things you can't live without? Do you have a deep love for Oreos? As always, thank you for reading and stay tune for more!

I heard this song for the first time at a time I really needed to hear it. Lauren Daigle's music is simply wonderful and God-inspired.
When You don’t move the mountains I’m needing You to move
When You don’t part the waters I wish I could walk through
When You don’t give the answers as I cry out to You
I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You!
