Current Obsessions

So I have two new obsessions right now. I don't usually obsess but I'm not gonna lie I love these two things right now.

First one a new all 90s radio station 105.7 Crush FM. It's from back home so I've been listening online. I love how fun the 90s music was but most of all I love how nostalgic it is for me. I can be taken back to a place or time instantly. Mostly good memories, some bad. Mostly I love it because it takes me back to being a kid and a more carefree time, dancing in my room and dreaming of being older....really I haven't changed that much because that still happens! ;)

Check it out....

Second....Zumba!!! I bought the Zumba DVDs that you see on paid programing sometimes.
They are the best! I love the music and how fun they are. I actually want to work out. I danced for about ten years and I miss it a lot so this is so up my alley. I can feel it working too, which is always nice. Totally recommend it especially if you are sick of the same old treadmill. So far no huge weight loss but my body usually takes a while, so I'll try to keep you updated.

A straight path

So many people ask Christians how they really know that there even is a God or that He cares about us the way Christians portray He does. I've thought of this a lot, especially in times of doubt....Yes even Christians doubt sometimes and that's okay people. But it's faith that brings me back to the my original beliefs that there is indeed a God and He loves us so much that he intercedes in our lives all the time. Today was one of those kinds of days. The kind of day that you just knew that you would need God and then he showed up in the most amazing way. No, He didn't speak directly to me or come to see me at my apartment.

I was driving into work in an ice storm. We had a couple of inches of snow and then freezing rain on top of that. I was praying for a good portion of the trip as I slowly drove in. Then when I turned off the highway onto the back roads, the part I was scared the most of, all of a sudden two big trucks come out of no where and pass me. It was a plow and a salt truck! Did I also mention on the radio someone was talking about facing your fears?!? It just felt so appropriate. No, Jesus wasn't driving the plow. But for that moment I felt so loved and cared for like those trucks were sent just for me. Maybe they were and maybe they weren't, but it sure felt like one of those Wow God moments. Those moments you just know He's there and not only is He there but he loves you so much and He'll always "make your paths straight" or clear!
