Another side to the beauty life offers...

Today's post is going to be something more personal and while you might first question why I would post it on my "beauty" blog, I feel like sharing this to the world because I think it is something that related to the beauty in life as well as the fact that I want someone to hold me accountable. Today, I went to a group gathering at my university with a Christian fellowship. I haven't gone to one of these in over a year, but I was definitely excited and happy to be there. I've been Christian ever since I was young because my mom brought my sister and me to church every Sunday, but then swimming and school seemed to just take up too much time and slowly we stopped going. Nonetheless, my faith has never wavered, but my life with God has certainly suffered and I realize that. As I've grown older, I've realized how much I miss having God be a integral part in my life and I want to want Him to be in my life. Like I want myself to want Him enough to actually change my life to make him a part of it. It's like you choose which friends you keep in contact with and I want to choose him, but it just always seems like I don't want it enough and I don't end up making time for him. I put other petty things before Him - school, my boyfriend, TV, club activities - all these petty things that can't compare to the time I should be spending with God.

So where does this bring me and what is the point of this post? Well, after going to today's fellowship, I've decided (and I want to be held accountable for this) that I'm really going to try this year to live a life with God. I want to take small steps like going to the Christian fellowship every Friday night, saying a prayer before every meal, going to church on Sundays, and sharing this all with my family. I want my family to be a part of this journey too and though it's hard that my father is not a believer, I definitely want to share God's message with them so that I can have their support as well as them having my support on this journey. I'm not trying to convert anyone or force my religion on anyone but I just want to share this part of my life that I'm excited to expand on and I wanted to share that with everyone. Living a life with God empowering you is something I can only think of right now and I hope to truly understand how amazing it is as I start to make time for God in my life. Life is beautiful but I think I will be able to see its true beauty with my eyes opened by God. Please wish me luck on this journey and I hope this different type of post didn't offend anyone. This is my own personal choice and religion and I am not telling you how to live your life. I am merely sharing my thoughts on this topic and if you agree or disagree, it is totally up to you :)

Live life in a way that makes you proud and you will have a fulfilling and satisfying life. xoxo.
