My name is Summer.

(That I know for sure… I also know that:)

I am twenty-two years old.

I love sunsets, spicy food and the color green.

My hobbies include writing (poems, blog posts, practising handlettering, etc.), baking, photography… I enjoy road trips and traveling… but, my absolute favorite thing to do is make memories with my family.

I can answer these questions fairly easy with a good amount of certainty. But, you know what I don’t know? … A. LOT.

There is an infinite amount of questions I have yet to even THINK of…

But, there are some that I have, and you can find my attempt at processing them here in the archives of my blog.

That’s what this is all about… that’s what I’m all about. Going through life trying to figure out just exactly who God created me to be, how He calls me to live and why?

But, it turns out I’m not the only one with these questions…

In fact, just about everyone I have ever met is unsure of something or working on something or struggling with something or, or, or… and so, I decided to take my thoughts, my findings, my trials and errors and record them here for your viewing.

Why would I do such a thing?

Well, I am glad you asked, let me tell you: I have decided to do this in hopes of encouraging you or offering some form of confirmation in your own battle. (In Jesus’ Name.)

When I first started this blog I was so pumped and ready to go. I thought I had all the answers. I was full of pride and itching to share everything I thought I knew with everyone across the face of the earth…

Let me tell you, trying to know all of the answers is EXHAUSTING. So, I had a talk with myself:

I said, “Self, just be yourself. God will do the rest.”

Dear friend (you know a lot about me now, I feel like we’re friends) I sure hope you decide to stick around and join me on this journey… if not, and you happen to just be passing through, I want to send you with a prayer that I hope what ever you may have just read, or what ever you may read, that our Heavenly Father has written through me, has touched your heart in some way.

I also would like to end with the only statement that has remained true over the course of all time and the same across the face of existence and that is this: The One True God of the Universe our Heavenly Father loves us so much that He sent His Only begotten Son to die on the cross for our sins. (John 3: 16) We are wretched sinners but unfailing love, amazing grace, undeserved mercy and unrestricted forgiveness await us in His arms… All we have to do is turn our lives over to Him. Invite Him into our hearts. Truly repent. Turn from evil. And follow Him.

…It won’t always be easy.

…But, it will always be worth it.

Are you with me?

“that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10: 9

*I recently did a “30 Days of Gratitude Challenge” by the amazing Jennifer Dukes Lee and you can find that here!

Statement of Faith:

I believe that there is one true GOD. I believe that HE alone created the Heavens and the Earth. I believe that HE sent HIS only begotten Son to die on the cross for my, our, sins… His Name is Jesus Christ and He is my Lord and Savior. I believe in the Holy Spirit. I believe they are one in the same. I believe in the truth of His Word – the Holy Bible. I believe that it is fact; that it is history not merely “stories.” I take what He has to tell me very seriously and very literal. I know that I am a sinner but I believe that through the blood of my Savior Jesus Christ, by the amazing grace of my Heavenly Father I am forgiven, I have been redeemed and saved. I know I will struggle and stumble and fall… but, I know that my GOD is greater than my mistakes and that He will be with me, He will help me up, He will love me through it all. I believe that every day is another chance to do better. I believe every day is an opportunity to serve Him and bring glory to His Name. I believe that is why we are here. Lastly, I believe that the invitation to everlasting life with Him on High is for everyone.

“For there is no partiality with God.” Romans 2: 11

Thank you Jesus… praise Your Holy Name.

    Wow!!! 😯
    So refreshing, authentic, bold and eloquently written.
    We each have come to that crossroads where we find that the “answers” we thought we knew we merely guesses and conclusions we drew to try to understand this thing called life.
    I sorta think that is what meeting our Heavenly Father will be like, all things we thought we “knew” will be clearly revealed and we’ll be fantastically astounded.
    (1 Corinthians 13:12)
    Now we see but as in a cloudy mirror, …
    I look forward to more posts (blogs) from you, thanks for being so transparent thats so brave and courageous of you!
    You did mention traveling on road trips which piqued my curiosity, have you been some cool places?
    Also the thought of warm baked goods touched my sweet tooth, … 🦷 what’s something you enjoy baking?

      Praise God! Thankful for His mercies, new every morning and an opportunity to better love, know and walk with Him and His children. Thank you for the encouraging words. God is so gracious and He is my courage… any of that you see in these words is truly Him! I loved visiting the ark! I have a post about it…
