Played this game before….

Have you ever found yourself in a life situation that seems to simply be a repeat of a previous one? I like to think of these events as failed tests; ones in which I keep repeating because I didn’t get it right the first time ten times.

In my walk with Christ, I am learning that each and every time I face a situation in life, be it a difficult decision of what food to eat or what man to date, I have complete control over what decision I make. You have control of what you do, and you don’t have to make the same mistakes you made in the past. Know this: you can consciously decide to make a better choice this time, and stand firm on that decision. You control the situation; it’s not the other way around.

I am a 32 year old teacher in Georgia, originally from Ohio (Go Buckeyes!). I am also a singer and I recently taught myself how to play guitar. For fun, I enjoy reading and lots of Netflix binges, which is my American right! I have also been known to cycle, run half marathons, and do just about whatever I set my mind to. A charming shepherd-mix dog named Kingsley lives with me and keeps me laughing at his antics at every turn. I am learning how to love the life I live with each passing day. Sometimes it's easy...other times, I write about it.
