Welcome to "God Sends Me Hearts!" This blog was inspired because of a game I play with God, and is meant to influence its readers to explore the depths of God's love in their own lives.
Over the past few years, I have seen hearts in random places. Some are simple, while others are quite miraculous. Seeing hearts encourages my heart greatly and is a way, I believe, that God reveals his love to me and reminds me he is with me. I see hearts in various forms from food to nature with them appearing in a lot of random places! They just happen to show up at the most opportune times and when I need God's reminder the most.
Some time this past summer (2013), there was an amazing sermon at the St. Louis region of my church on Jesus' redeeming love. I saw a cross for the first time.
Thus, my game with God expanded from hearts to crosses as well! For someone who is quite a perfectionist, worries at times and can be a little too hard on myself, seeing crosses is a reminder that I am redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. Because of Jesus' love and death on the cross, God sees me "as if I never sinned." It is good to be reminded that although I shouldn't continue in my sin, that sin does not reign over me any longer. (Romans 6:1-4, Romans 8:1-3)
A little bit about me:
I have a B.A. in Nonfiction Creative Writing from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Last year, I graduated with my MSJ from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. While there, my concentration was health and science/multimedia reporting. Yes, I am not only a lover of God and hearts, but anything health/science and fitness related. I come from a personal training background and have personally benefited from alternative/integrative medicine in my own life. I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I love to cook, try new foods at restaurants and write about anything food related!
I am excited to share my stories as well as the stories of others and how God personally meets us where we are, and reveals the depth of his love through life's ups and downs.
