Even If He Doesn’t (Kenna Stubblefield)

There are many times in life where we will have difficult moments and face challenges. It is in these moments that we have to ask ourselves whether we will stand firm and continue to trust in the goodness of God. In Daniel 3, a command was given to the people by King Nebuchadnezzar to bow down and worship a golden statue every time a certain music was played. Anyone who did not obey his command, would be thrown into a…

God’s Plan > Our Choices (Dalton Sledge)

Frequently in life we may find ourselves lost and wondering why something happened the way it did or what should we be doing with our life. This can be very hard because often we look at the rest of the world and think that “oh so and so looks happy, I should try to live like them let me go out and party and get drunk and sleep with somebody I’m not married to”. However, god sees further and beyond…

Trusting God (Trayson Lawler)

            Sometimes in our busy lives, we feel the need carry all the weight of our burdens and struggles on our own shoulders. While this is a common theme among many (especially college students) there is a much easier and simpler way to go about our daily lives-by trusting in God. Most Christians when asked if they trust God would probably agree that they do trust God, however, a far better and more difficult question to answer could be, “How…

Blessed Be the Name of the Lord (Jon Stubblefield)

Blessed Be the Name of the Lord “Blessed be Your nameWhen the sun’s shining down on meWhen the world’s all as it should beBlessed be Your name. Blessed be Your nameOn the road marked with sufferingThough there’s pain in the offeringBlessed be Your name.” If these words sound familiar it is because they are from the second verse of one of my favorite church songs “Blessed Be Your Name”. This song has a really powerful meaning that has very practical…

Divine Direction (Phillip Kiskaden)

One of the biggest problems college students face is understanding their purpose. Young men and women are presented with multiple paths and options for their life which ultimately can lead them to feeling confused and without a sense of direction. This happened to me during my time in college, coming in I had no idea what my long term plan would be, I contemplated changing majors or careers multiple times and never came up with what it was I felt…

Identity in Christ (Trevor Polston)

Finding your identity in Christ can be complicated or not, if you’re lucky. For me it was an emotional roller coaster with awkward turns and dips! Coming to Christ felt like I was really in the twilight zone. God totally flipped my world upside down. For the first time in my life, I was surrounded by white people, and I had no idea why they were being so nice to me! In this short blog post, I am going to…

Relinquishing Control (Sydney Hawthorne)

Growing up, I have always had a hard time dealing with the changes that happened throughout my life, and I have always chalked it up to me being the oldest sibling and my parents’ divorce. I had to “grow up” at a very young age, and although I did it, it did not sit well with my issues of change. It took a long time for me to adjust to my parent’s not being together, marrying other people, and having…

What About Me, God? (Malia Sorce)

Being raised in a Christian household growing up, I would have to go to church and Sunday school every Sunday. The message would be the same every weekend… God loves me and sent Jesus to die for me, be nice to people, blah blah blah… Back then, I didn’t fully understand how the Christian faith worked, and I thought all it said was that God was gonna make my life happy with sunshine and rainbows and all that. As I…

Community (Jonathan Bunnell)

It takes a village to raise a child. We’ve all heard those words. We’ve all put ourselves in the shoes of the village raising the child. Have you ever taken a moment to think about it from the view of the child though? The kid never asks for the community to raise them, it just happens. We have no idea if the kid even wants to be a part of that community. For most of my life, I did not…

Pathways (Ben Jamison)

My first semester at WKU was tough, and that’s probably an understatement. I didn’t do much, I didn’t meet many people, and honestly I just didn’t have a lot of fun. This resulted in me coming to the conclusion that I needed to transfer. If you would have talked to me over winter break, I would have told you that without a doubt in my mind that I was leaving WKU and going to Grand Canyon University in Arizona. Then,…

Forgiven & Forgiving (Maila Sorce)

What does it mean to forgive yourself? First of all, what is forgiveness? Let me share a quote to help make things clear: “Forgiveness doesn’t mean you’re no longer hurt. Forgiveness doesn’t mean that you have to be friends with this person again, and forgiveness doesn’t mean you trust them. … Forgiveness is not a matter of feeling, it’s a decision.” -Father Mike Schmitz Father Mike Schmitz has a YouTube video on the channel Ascension Presents that could not explain…

Stress on Display (Anna Kate Hawkins)

During my senior year of high school, I had an amazing opportunity to work at the local museum in my hometown where I was the secretary and helped create and put together new displays. In the fall of that year, my boss came to me asking if I would attend their board meeting to discuss a new project for the museum. I was the youngest person in that room by at least forty years, and let me tell you… it…
