Dependence

A little while ago I spoke about something on my show and I wanted to share it here as well. I talked about a really hard time that I had in my life once, work was really hard, the people who I worked for never saw the effort I put in, actually funny story they somehow managed to accuse me of the opposite. My life at home was tough, everyone around me seemed to be going through their own battles. My finances were not the best, I managed to get all of my debt almost payed off completely and then of course stuff presented itself and I made the stupid decision of paying for it with debt ( that’s a story for another time ). If I could describe it even more I would say it was almost like a time in my life where everything seemed to be falling apart.

Now there is a lie that seems to be going around the church and around the body of Christ and that is the fact that God somehow causes these bad things to happen to us. I on the other hand believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that nothing but good ever comes from God. However, I do believe that God allows trials and tribulations in our lives so we have an opportunity to be strengthened for bigger battles down the road.

Then one day it hit me, one day maybe I would have a job where I would have the approval of man, maybe I would have an abundance of finances and maybe my friends and family would no longer be down and out. Would I still draw my strength from God or would I lean on my finances or what man says.You see it is easy to depend on God when you only have God, but how easy would it be to depend on God if you had wealth and success and everything you could ever want?

We all face tough times, and we will for the rest of our time here on earth, but never forget Proverbs 3:5-8 which says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and He will make straight your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord, and turn away from evil. It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.”

I guess it comes down to trust, God wants and has the best waiting for you. The question is, will you be willing to do what it takes, will you be willing to take the hits and keep moving forward, will you be willing to get up every single time you are knocked down to the ground to get His best?

My life has been full of ups, but it has also been full of downs. There have been times where life has felt so difficult and times where life felt like it could not get any better. But through the good and the bad I have learned and am continuing to learn that God is the only one I can put all of my trust in and the only one I can lean on.

Summer Vibes In February

Okay so I know that I probably think this every single year around this time, but I swear this time it is for real and I mean it…I can not wait for summer. I don’t know where the switch occurs from one second enjoying the beautiful snow falls to suddenly screaming like you are making the next big horror movie whenever you see the forecast and you see snow on the horizon. 

I am probably one of the weirdest young adults you will ever meet ( if you didn’t already figure that out from listening to my show ). I am actually looking forward to summer so much that it is making me think things like…”oh Terry you may not of liked it in the past but this year cutting grass will be fun”!
Am I desperate…not quite, I just want to exchange white for green!

The Magical Realm of The Life 100.3 Washrooms…

I don’t know if this happens to you at your place of employment, but the washrooms here at life are really bizarre. There is not a single place where more memories have been formed then here at the life 100.3 washrooms.

Now that you are disturbed, let me share a few stories:

So for everyone who doesn’t know the washrooms here at life are not located in our office space but out in the hallway, they are shared with all the other tenants in the building. For some reason sometimes the lights are randomly shut off in the middle of the night, including when I work so that can make for some interesting situations to say the least.

I remember coming back from an event and I went into the washroom with my cousin and it was pitch black so my cousin tried opening one of my stall doors. It turned out to be locked, so, he kept shaking the door and was like “why the heck is the door locked”. So I looked at him and was like “maybe because someone is in there” and then we heard someone cough… Oh my goodness both our faces turned red it was so awkward, I felt so bad for the poor guy just trying to use the washroom in the middle of the night.

But now for a recent story, Mr. Evan Duran went home after his shift ended at around 7. The night went on like usual, at about 10:20 at night I walk into the washroom and Evan was just standing there lol! It was pretty hilarious but really random, we just awkwardly looked at each other and parted ways. It was pretty great.

My goodness I just wrote a blog on washrooms… I thought the day would never come lol 🙂
