Like a Sunflower

Hello everyone!
My name is Victoria Adams, and I am a college student in Louisiana. I'm currently 19 years old, and this is my first blog ever, but I am super excited to get started with it!

I go to Nicholls State University, and I am studying Pre-Med Biology. Among the many things I love, here are a few: Jesus, traveling, music, painting, writing, FLOWERS, exploring, hiking, reading, spending time with Jesus, JESUS (again), friends, family, the sky, the stars, the moon, God's creations, being weird, singing horribly, dancing with two-left feet, spring time, and God!!!

WHY AM I WRITING THIS?
I have been having this blog on my heart for a while now. I asked God to show me my purpose, and I got word over me of starting a blog. It made sense to me because I've always been into writing and grammar. I also kept getting ideas for things I wanted to share with other Christians, but I wasn't sure how I was going to do it, but God gave me an answer!

This blog is going to be about things I have learned in my walk with Jesus! I feel like it can be helpful to other Christians, and possibly even random people who stumble across my blog. :)
I hope that my readers will feel free to comment on my posts to either improve my blog, share their own thoughts and experiences, or just to freely express themselves! It's all about sharing and trying to reach out to the rest of the world!

WHY DID I NAME IT BLESSED & BELOVED?
This was what came to my mind as perfect...I am absolutely BLESSED, and God has been teaching me that I am His beloved.

WHEN WILL I POST?
I have two jobs, am a full-time college student, and am very involved with my church so please bear with me through this. I may post more than once a week, I may post every few months...it will just be when I find the time!

LIKE A SUNFLOWER?
Now, while I was searching for a picture to use as the background to my blog, I found some pictures of sunflowers that were facing away from the camera. Each and every one facing the same direction. And it reminded me how I learned a long time ago that sunflowers ALWAYS grow to face the sun. This made me think, "Man, I want to be like a sunflower"... always GROWING to face the SON, Jesus Christ. I want to always face the light, and I think that this should be every Christian's goal. So, be a like a sunflower and follow the son! And this is my way of following the son, listening to His word over my life and creating this blog... GROWING in my faith with God.

I hope y'all will enjoy my blog, and have a blessed day!!!!
