Passion: Let the Future Begin

Passion: Let the Future Begin was released to the public yesterday. The CD is a compilation of the songs from Passion 2013. I highly suggest buying the music. I've listened to the CD yesterday and today, and I am blown away by how moving it is. Maybe that's because I'm remembering the experience of Passion while listening to it, remembering being in the Georgia Dome with 60,000 college students lifting up the name of Jesus. However, I really believe that God will use the new Passion CD to stir people's hearts toward Him. Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels, Kristian Stanfill, and all the rest of the Passion artists have such a desire to glorify God with their music and their talents, and I can't help but worship along with them. God has certainly blessed them with the incredible ability to write songs and sing beautifully, and it's awesome to see these artists giving everything back to the Lord. Below are some of my favorite lyrics from different songs on the CD. Enjoy!

"Yours is the name above all names/You stand alone, I stand amazed/Jesus, only Jesus/Holy, King Almighty Lord, saints and angels all adore/I join with them and bow before/Jesus only Jesus"--Jesus Only Jesus

"Lord our God is ever faithful/never changing through the ages/from this darkness you relieve us/and forever we will say you're the Lord our God"--The Lord our God

"I know who goes before me/I know who stands behind me/The God of angel armies/Is always by my side/The one who reigns forever/He is a friend of mine/The God of angel armies/Is always by my side"--Whom Shall I Fear

"Wake up, open your eyes/no longer dead, you are alive"--Children of Light

"I cannot contain it this fire inside/I cannot contain let it shine/I cannot contain it, this light inside"--Burning Lights

Exciting news!!

It's been awhile since I've written a blog post. This semester has been busy--not only because of school stuff, but also because of exciting life things. About a month ago, the most amazing man got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! And of course, I said yes!

Honestly, there were times that I questioned if I would ever marry someone. Living with cystic fibrosis is hard. Choosing to be with someone with cystic fibrosis is almost crazy. Think about it; I am not a normal 23 year old. I have to plan and plan and plan to make sure I fit breathing treatments, exercise, and eating into my schedule. When I travel, I have to take a crazy amount of stuff with me--my Vest, nebulizers, compressor, pills, inhaled medication, puffers, and snacks. I have to make sure I sleep 8-9 hours a night because my body uses more energy than most, and I need sleep to fight infection. I have to have a course of IVs at least twice a year. It's hard to be spontaneous and adventurous because CF…

End of semester update

The past few weeks have been rough.

I got a cold about 3 weeks ago. No big deal, right? I hadn't gotten a cold in 10 months, which is basically a record for me. Surely my body could fight a cold off. Boy, was I wrong. After a week of fighting the cold, I started running a high fever and felt like a truck had run me over. I finally called the doctor for some reinforcements and started on an oral antibiotic and a course of steroids. Meanwhile, my school semester had just picked up, and I was down to the last 2 weeks of school. I had to finish a research paper, take 2 finals, write a final progress report for my practicum, and give really good, productive therapy. After 4 days on the antibiotic and steroids (Monday with one week of school left), I still was feeling crummy. I checked my oxygen and noticed that it was low--running at about 90-94%. I'm pretty positive the cold had turned into pneumonia. Even walking from my bedroom to my living room made me winded. It took me two-th…

A note to incoming college freshman

Recently, I was talking to a young woman who will be starting her freshman year of college in August. She didn't ask for my advice, but I gave it anyway. I tend to do that sometimes--blame my desire to help other people succeed as best as I can, I guess. Anyway, that got me thinking, what would I write if I were completely honest and vulnerable with incoming college freshman? What would I tell them that no one else seems to tell them? My freshman year was only 5 years ago, so my memories are still fresh. I came up with a list of things I found out to be true my freshman year. They may not all be true for you, but I hope and pray you gain some insight out of the lessons I learned.

1. Join a church and get plugged in to a small group. This should be your first order of business the minute you step on campus. Besides, you know, finding your dorm room and where all your classes are. Getting in a small group was literally the best thing I did freshman year. Not only did I start forming…
