"For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that One died for all, and therefore all died.  And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again."- 2 Corinthians 5:14-15

Welcome to Compelled!

Today, my thoughts and desires are so different than they were when I started this blog. Then, I wanted a cute little "corner in the universe" to post pictures, stories, and funny things happening in my life. Now, I want nothing more than to be so drenched in His love -- to the point that it controls me. I want to do nothing out of selfish ambition or vein conceit, but in humility consider others better than myself (>>). I want to give and give and give and give of myself until I truly know what it means to "give until it hurts." I want to live bent low.

Now don't worry, vintage goodness will still be blogged, along with other loves of mine. But it's about time my blog caught back up with my personality. 

So look around, bask in the prettiness! And make sure to tell Jhen Stark just how awesome she is at blog design. ohhh yeah.

Very simple design and very pretty. I understand though when it comes to the direction of your blog. When you feel led to have a blog that points towards Him first and then other things second, you just can't say no!

Hi Rylie! I'm a fairly new follower, but I'm loving the new look, and am so excited for your "new" blog!

Whoa! Saw this on my GoogleReader and was like, "What the heck?! What is this blog? I don't remember ever following Compelled." Hahaha

Love the new look and new concept! Way to take a risk!

i had no idea that this was your blog! ha ha. On my reader I thought maybe i had started following people half asleep or something. BUT i am so glad that I clicked on it and discovered your new and improved CHRIST CENTERED corner of the universe. Thriving in Grace was the name of my old blog and I felt driven to change it and I still wonder sometimes if the name I have is really the RIGHT name. I guess I will not know until God directs me to that perfect name. Glad JHEN was able to hook you up. So clean and classy!

Beautiful blog! My husband and I are realizing how we have been so selfish in our first several years of marriage, wanting it all, prideful. We are realizing what..pardon me...idiots we were! You described how I am longing to become more than just a believer, I want as you said to be drenched in His love!
Thank you,
I am your newest follower!
