Spending Time with God

I have been spending time with God and I never knew that spending time with my Father could be so exciting. In spending time with him, I tell the Lord everything and I mean everything. I love that I can be honest about situations going on in my life and to know that it is okay to cry, be happy, and tell God all my secrets. I know it might sound crazy to tell God something that HE already knows about but to me, I think it is so cool to know that I can have a relationship with God and be honest with him. I tell him the truth about how I feel about things and I tell him all my worries and joys. I want to continue to have that kind of relationship with the Lord. I really want to get closer to HIM. I have found myself asking Him to never leave me because I CANNOT live without Him. I want to be an ambassador for Christ and to be sold out for him. I sometimes say that I want to be crazy for Him more than the girls that are crazy for Usher or maybe even Bow Wow. I was looking at Isaiah 54:5 For your Maker is your husband— the LORD Almighty is his name— the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth. And I was like wow I want God to be my spiritual husband; my everything. I don't know if I will every get marry but right now I want God to be the head in my life. I talk to God about if I ever get married and I thought well if God's will I will get marry. So I figure right know I want want to live for Christ. I want Him to use me while I am young till the day I die. I don't want to wait till I'm 30 or 40 beccause I am not promise that I will even make to age 22. I want God now not down the road.

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.
