Believe It!

I’ve been thinking about some stuff lately…like, how cool would it have been when to be around when Jesus was here on earth?  Think about it; being there when he was preaching the Sermon on the Mount, watching the miracles in person, and see the living God do his thing.  It would have been crazy seeing and experiencing all of that!  I would have been a set believer then…how could you doubt?

But, we live in the modern world. There is war, differences in religions, and the thought that we must be P.C. all the time.  We don’t have that guy that came to live with us, teach us, and mentor us.  But, we have the Word and the fact that Jesus is still living within us.  How cool is that?!  He can be our best friend, our love, everything.

John 20:29 says, “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”  I think this is such an important verse to know.  It’s right after Jesus rises from the grave, and Thomas won’t believe until he sees and places his hands on the marks from the nails.  Jesus is really encouraging when it comes to the people who still believe he was raised, even though they haven’t seen him.

I love this! It’s like, Jesus knew there would be doubters and skeptics in the world.  Jesus was taking us into account.  I love that Jesus was so cool and down-to-earth about everything.  Jesus was an actually man…he was human; the thing is that he resisted sin.  He was like no other human EVER.  Jesus was so cool…I can’t get over that! I absolutely love it.

Keep on staying in faith, and even if you doubt know that Jesus loves you. I’ll keep that in mind, too. Feel free to leave opinions, questions, anything. I’ll respond!

Love,

Paige

ImageAhh, Saturday…you are one of my favorite days of the week.  No school, no plans, no anything important. You are a chill, down-to-earth, beautiful, sun-filled day. Sincerely, The Entire World.

Okay, there’s my love letter to Saturday. I’m sitting in a Starbucks, feeling like a hipster, drinking a tall white chocolate mocha Frappuccino. I’m hanging out with some super cool people, discussing some of our opinions and beliefs. It’s so nice to get out of my little college town to go to the closest college town that has a Starbucks!

I’ve been really behind with my writing, school work, everything. I’m trying to find a job, trying to get through the next three weeks of school and still being involved with everything. It’s been a busy week!

I just want to leave you with some encouragement! School is almost out! Summer is coming! Make the most of it!!!!!

I love you all, and I pray for you all the time. Keep on keepin’ on, and I’ll do the same.

Love,

Paige

Easter: Not All About Bunnies

Happy Easter, everyone!

I know I’ve been loading you up with video after video, but I had Blogger’s Block (trust me, it’s a real thing!).

This week has been a really cool experience for me.  Since it’s been the week leading up to Easter, the Christian organization I’m involved in has really pumped it up.  On Tuesday we read through the entire gospel of John.  That was such a cool experience for me because I had never just sat down and read through the story of Jesus.  We all read it out loud, one chapter at a time, as a community.  I heard things that I had never really realized.

Thursday we did something a little, well a lot, different from the normal church service.  We had a Jewish Seder, which is an order of celebrations…a meal.  We had different herbs, greens, breads, and juices to eat in a certain order.  There was different kinds of music, speaking, prayers…it was such a cool experience.

On Friday, a lot of us got together to have a meal with each other.  It was sort of to symbolize the Last Supper.  We then watched “The Passion” together.  I had never seen it before.  It was so good to see, especially right before Easter.  It was so real; I couldn’t stand to watch some of it.  It really wrapped this week up nicely.

I can’t wait until Sunday when we celebrate together with all of our churches everywhere.

Love,

Paige
