“Be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead.” 1 Peter 1:6. I will be honest with you all. I am scared to grow up. Scared to leave for college, scared to move away from my parents, scared because the future is so uncertian. And I am sure you are all scared of many of the same things. But you know what? We should strive to be truly glad.

What do I mean? I mean we should be glad for our struggles, and glad for what life is giving us, because we are alive! We have been given the gift of life by our God, and He has allowed us to live this crazy life! The rest of the verse sasy that there is “wonderful joy ahead.” How cool is that? Even in the midst of our busy, hectic, bad newssometimes scary lives, God reminds us that there is joy ahead! Be glad for your struggles, because they are leading you to a life filled with joy! When I get worried about college and the future, I just think of the blessings that are ahead of me and how God has a plan. He has a plan to bring you and me wonderful joy! Be glad! Psalm 112:7 says “She does not fear bad news; she confidently trusts the Lord to take care of her.”

So, don’t fear bad news or the bad times, be confident that God has it under control and that he will take care of you, no matter where you are in life.

There is wonderful joy ahead!

As thought by our grandparents, social media is the “route to all evil”.  Our generation is constantly on our phones or iPads, checking twitter and Facebook, and editing pictures for Instagram.  Although social media may be taking over the world, it isn’t all bad!

Social media is a great way to express yourself through photographs, thoughts, and ideas.  Some use it as an outlet to post their passion for photography or wise words!  It’s also a great way to Chelsea Crockett- social media proskeep in touch with people and raise awareness for multiple events/causes.  Facebook and Twitter have started becoming more and more inspirational.  Uplifting quotes from popular accounts and celebrities have been hitting the Twitter timeline more frequently and stories that give you faith in humanity again have started popping up all over Facebook timelines.

On the downside, social media has its negatives.  It has taken over the lives of teens all over the world.  It has also become a place to complain and vent about their lives or other people through Facebook statuses.  Unfortunately, it has also been a target for cyberbullying.  Making fun of how someone looks in their pictures has become a nationwide trend causing many teens physical and emotional harm.  If you’re going to use social media, use it to uplift, inspire, and show off your creativity.  Prove to the world who YOU are in a positive light!

Love,

Chelsea
