The Lord pursued me my whole life and I, naive and proud, played with the idea of committing myself to Him for years. It was not until 2014 that I truly broke before the Lord and came to accept Him as my Lord and Savior.
By His providence and merciful grace, I graduated the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in three years (I had seriously considered dropping out near the end of my freshman year after relapsing — I could no longer write with pen or keyboard due to shaking hands, let alone eat, sleep or think properly) with a degree in English and a minor in Communication.
Those were very dark and bleak days and although the trauma of it all still lingers, and I have no certainty that it is all in the past, my desire is to serve faithfully, live divinely dissatisfied and fight for His purpose and will. May everything I do and say be done with eternity in mind. May everything in this world fall so incredibly short and pale in comparison to the beauty of His covenant love and redemptive story.
I am by no means a professional writer. Whatever exists on this page is a glimpse of God’s faithfulness in my life and His undying love for my soul. As you read, please discern for yourself the text before you as I most certainly do not have all the answers or correct interpretations.
I pray these string of words may be used to glorify Him and my desire to type and create will only be sustained by His grace alone.
