Praying for my family

I'm reading this book called "Praying for you family: An Enternal Legacy" by Sammy Tippit. The reason I got this book becuase I was and still is worried about my mother, brothers and sisters salvation. I could not stop worrying. My soul was very trouble and I could not stop it. I wanted God to save my family and for them to become Ambassadors for Christ. I wanted them to see how sinful they are and run to Christ. This book is such an encouragement, it tell the story of Tippit great grandmother and what a praying woman she was!!! I loved her and I don't even know her. But she prayed for her family for their salvation. It took many years but the prayer request came true. She was faithful in praying for her family. Tippit told another true story of a woman for her son, who had a son that did not care for God but after more than 30 years he was saved. I was like, WOW amazing!!! I felt like if I continue to pray for my family salvation they can get saved. This made to continue to pray for them and have faith in my God. I really don't know when He will answer my prayer but I still want to pray. This book is full of lessons that I have learned about:

The Meeting Place

Praying for Your Family

Praying for Yor Children

Praying with a Forgiven Heart

Tearing Down Strong Holds

Desperate Praying

Leaving a Legacy

I really like this book it has encourage to to continue to pray when things seem to be getting worst. I know that I will have faith in my Savior, He is faithful. I don't know what he will answer but I will contine to pray.

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.
