14: Why I blog?

Todays Prompt:  When did you start blogging and why?





I started to blog in the year 2005. I remember being in my High School library when I made the decision to blog. There was a lot of things going on in that time. I was dealing with depression, loneliness and being teased. I was a "new" Christian and starting to know God by going to church, praying  and reading the Bible. Over the years my reasons for blogging have changed. At first, I just wanted a place to write out my thoughts and write about God and prayers.  I want my blog to be about God, life, prayers and journaling. I have grown a lot since my first blog post and in a way I think, blogging has shown my journey and growth in Christ Jesus. I hope this blog will be a place people are shown the love of God and can be encourage to keep following Christ.

13: Your current relationship status.

Today's Prompt: Your current relationship status. If dating/married, give us a glimpse of your story! If single, share about this special season.

Single Girl....


I can remember time and time, people asking me "why are you single?" or "do you have a boyfriend?" That question use to bother me but it does not now. I have accepted that I am single and I probably will be single for awhile. Being single is good and a blessing.

I found this time of singleness a blessing and a time I should use wisely. I have been using this time to involve myself in church and life group. Right now I am learning to be content where I am in my life. I am learning to live one day at a time, instead of trying to speed up time or always wondering what someone is doing. 

I wrote this quote in my journal on 4.19.2014. 

I do solemnly resolve to embrace my current season of life and will maximize my time in it. I will resist the urge to hurry through or circumvent any portion of my journey but will live with a spirit of contentment. 

 The Resolution for Women By Priscilla Shirer


This quote describe where I am in my singleness. I would love to be in the ministry of marriage but I am content. I just want to daily seek God and get closer to him. I will continue to pray for the opportunity and privilege to be in ministry of marriage, but I am happy to be single.

9: My Personality

Today's Prompt: Let's talk personality types. Introverted? Extroverted? Unsure-troverted? ;) If you know your Myers-Briggs type, tell us about it! If not, you can take this similar test and share your results.




I am a INTROVERT. I remember when I was younger, I though there was something wrong with my personality. I come from family (close and distant) who have strong personalities and are loud. There is nothing wrong with be loud but that was not me. I have come to love "me," I don't need to be more louder and have a strong personality. 

Every once in a while I need to RECHARGE. I need my alone time. Being around people all the time is draining. 

I love to LISTEN. So if I don't say anything, I am just listening, observing and thinking before I speak. I like to have some meaning with my words. 

I prefer to be in a SMALL groups. I don't like big crowds of people. I love to go out and have fun with people every once in awhile. 

I am NOT ANTISOCIAL. I just like to talk when I have something important to say. I am a Social Worker. I have to talk to people all day, introduce myself and get to know the people I will be working with. 

I prefer to be HOME with TEA and a MOVIE. I like outside but I love the comfort of my room or my home. 

My Other Personality Traits: 

Diligent. EASY Going. Reserved. CAUTIOUS. determine. Compassionate. Organized. HELPFUL. modest. Adaptable. OBSERVANT. creative. sensitive. Funny- at times. Intuitive. Suspicious-of people. Friendly.
