I was born in Missouri , as a little girl I always wanted to be a Christian. I remember when I was very young, about 5 years old when I read the little children bible and I just loved to read that book. My dad died when I was eight years old and that is when I started to talk to God almost every night before I went to sleep, asking him to tell my dad that I LOVE HIM and that I want to be a Christian. I don't know how I knew how to pray or why I wanted to speak to God, I mean there were very few people around me who were truly following God. I love going to church and hearing about the lord Jesus Christ and God. I guess I wanted to fit in or wanted someone to love me for who I was. Then at the age of 12 I move to New York. I always wanted to move to New York. Then I started to go to my aunt church and I really like the church. I believe it was around Christmas time when I accepted Christ into my life. I was really happy about that day. To me I felt different, I saw things in a whole different way.I woke up every morning to read the bible and to talk to my Father God. I'm not going lie there were times where I got off track with God. I kept falling and getting back up. But now I want to stay close to God , having a close relationship. And it's hard cause I don't have people around me who are truly following God . I ask God can you pleases send me some Christian friends. I need people around me who are really standing firm for God. There are times where I wonder If I'm suppose be a christian because I am struggling everyday and it hurts.

Godly Women From the Past (Gladys Aylward Part 2)

Quotes from Gladys Aylward
"I wasn't God's first choice for what I've done for China…I don't know who it was…It must have been a man…a well-educated man. I don't know what happened. Perhaps he died. Perhaps he wasn't willing…and God looked down…and saw Gladys Aylward…And God said - "Well, she's willing."
“If God has called you to China or any other place and you are sure in your own heart, let nothing deter you….Remember, it is God who has called you and it is the same as when He
called Moses or Samuel.”

"My heart is full of praise that one so insignificant, uneducated, and ordinary in every way could be used to His glory for the blessing of His people in poor persecuted China."

Malawi Mission Trip 2016

Its been two weeks since I have been back in America after being in Africa. I was able to go on a mission trip to Malawi. Since being back, I am still speechless. I can't find the words to explain my experience of being in Africa. The land is beautiful. The people are beautiful. The food is amazing. Some of the things I can take away from being in Malawi:

1) To be grateful. There were days that we went without running water (could not take showers). I thought to myself that the Malawi people go through this all the time and I still see them praising God. 2) To Pray, Worship and Rejoice always. I need to make up my mind daily to not let the world fill me up. I saw people walking for hours to get to church and while in church service praising God. I need to daily sit at the Lords feet and be with Him praying.  3) I can live without social media. During the trip we did not have much internet and we were okay. Since being home, I have found myself sitting in silence and meditating on …

Journal Entry #14 - Free me up, from the Fear of Rejection

Abba I pray for peace in my heart and mind. I no longer want to believe in the lies that I am worthless, ugly, and slow. I need (want) you to remind me of who I am in you. When I look at my past I see a girl that has been hurt. A girl that was lonely and invisible. Show me Your love for me. Show me that I belong to you

The pain from being rejected still haunts me. My mind is filled with memories of being rejected. There were many times I was called ugly, monkey, slow, made fun of because of my weight and height, I notice that sometimes I would isolate myself from others because I was afraid of being rejected by my peers. What others thought of me, consumed me. I placed more value on what others have said and thought about me then what God says about me, as his child. The Lord has shown me His love and everyday I am learning to lay down the fear of rejection.
