Philippians 4:13

This verse is commonly misused. It does not mean that because we believe, we can succeed in all of our endeavors. It is true that we can accomplish great things through Jesus, but that is not what Philippians 4:13 means. It means that, through Christ, we can be content in all things– through trials, pain, illness, long nights, family dysfunction, abuse, neglect– because we can take comfort and find our hope in the fact that He alone is enough. We are loved by a perfect Father who sees all our brokenness yet delights in calling us His own! Now, that’s a reason to smile… 🙂

To Mask Or Not To Mask?

Screen Shot 2017-04-03 at 1.16.11 PM

Just a casual “allergic to life” selfie. I had to wear my Vogmask today because the landscapers were spraying the campus grass with pesticides and the painters were finishing the walls in Dabney. I really should wear my mask more, (especially because it really does help in preventing anaphylaxis), but my pride often gets in the way. Maybe I’ll invest in some cuter ones in the future, we’ll see…but for now, off to chem lab.. 🙂
