My favorite is "God With Us"
Who are we that You would be mindful of us what do You see that's worth looking our way we are free in ways that we never should be sweet release from the grip of these chains like hinges straining from the weight my heart no longer can keep from singing.
all that is within me cries for You alone be glorified Emmanuel God with us my heart sings a brand new song the debt is paid these chains are gone Emmanuel God with us.
Lord You know our hearts don't deserve Your glory still You show a love we cannot afford like hinges straining from the weight my heart no longer can keep from singing. [back to chorus]
Such a tiny offering compared to Calvary nevertheless way law it at your feet.

An interesting thing happen today in my New Testament class, we talk about 1Tim 2:16 (I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.) And MAN!!!, I must say you should have seen the faces of the girls and heard the response from them. They were surprise that the Bible would say that women cannot teach (pastor) in the church or even have authority over men. But I kind of knew that people in my class would respond the way they did because many of those ladies don't know the roles God has given us as women. So many people look at that verse and say "well that verse is old". But I differ with that comment. I know what God calls His women to be and in saying that I see NOTHING WRONG with me as a wife and mother (soon too be, God willing) staying home teaching my children and being a helper to my husband. I ABSOLUTELY love my role as a woman. What an honor!!!!
Here is the sunrise outside my window the morning (nothing like waking up early to spend time with the Lord and looking outside seeing a beautiful sunrise.

- I sought the LORD, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:4
- Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. In God (I will praise His word), In God I have put my trust; I will not fear. Psalm 56: 3, 4
I memorize these scriptures, prayed and trusted in the Lord. I thank God that I am no longer afraid of airplanes or death.

Date of Birth: December 2, 1848-January 13, 1915
Mary was born in Aberdeen but at the age of 11 years old her family move to Dundee looking for work. Mary mother was the one that made sure that she went to church and a worker at a mill.
Soon this young woman would develop a interest in Christianity and joining a local mission teaching the poor. She was a very courageous women and a story to prove this was when she dared a gang of boys to swing a metal close to her face. Mary did not move at all and the boys had to attend her Sunday school.
Mary is known by those who know her to have a soft voice and loving heart.
In the year of 1876, she applied to the Foreign Mission Broad of the United Presbyterian Church of Scotland. She was trained and the sent to Calabar. At this time Nigeria was in turmoil, slave trade and many disease was among the the missionaries. Mary herself suffer from the flu and malaria.
She lived among the people and that shock many missionaries. She learn to speak Efik fluently,
and Mary also adopted many children that were consider to be a cursed and many of these children had been scarified.
She cared for the people of Africa that she walk as long as she could to preach the gospel. And this woman would wake up early in the morning asking the Lord to use her in Africa
A moment to remember:
In the village of Ibaka there were some wives that went out to visit a man but was seen. They were in trouble and the chief said for this crime they should be get one hundred lashes with a whip. But Mary said that was too harsh and that people could die from 100 lashes. This woman was bold and said to these women that they should all be shamed and said wives should remain pure and that they betrayed the chiefs trust. She told them that the Word of God has mercy and that they should not go unpunished. Because God does not overlook sin or forbid punishment for sin. So she insisted that these women should get 10 lashes.Another moment to remember:
She met a man name Charles who wanted to marry her. But she said "I will marry you if it is God's will". They both had to check when the Mission board to see if they would agree to him work in the jungle with her. Charles ask "what if they say no, would you come back to Duke Town?" And Mary said no because her work for God in the jungle and told Charles "If God does not send you in the jungle with me, then you must do your work and I must do my work where we have been planted".

Lessons to to be learn
Susanna defintion of sin:
"You, O Lord, have called us to watch and pray. Therefore, whatever may be the sin against which we pray, make us careful to watch against it, and so have reason to expect that our prayers will be answered.

INTRODUCTING . . . .
Born in January of 1669, was the youngest of 25 children to Rev. Dr. Samuel Annesley, a noted scholar, beloved clergyman, a mentor to young seminarians, renowned and respected preacher, and chaplain.
She met Samuel Wesley and married him at the age of 19 and became Mrs. Wesley. Togther they had 19 children.
Things for Susanna were not always good her house burn down twice and in one of the fires her son could have died but was rescue from the fire.Susanna had loss nine children while they were infants, and when Susanna dead only eight of children were still alive.
Her husband suffer from poor financial ability and he had been jail at least two times. Her husband left her and the children for a year because of a minor dispute.
A Quote to her absent husband:
“I am a woman, but I am also the mistress of a large family. And though the superior charge of the souls contained in it lies upon you, yet in your long absence I cannot but look upon every soul you leave under my charge as a talent committed to me under a trust. I am not a man nor a minister, yet as a mother and a mistress I felt I ought to do more than I had yet done. I resolved to begin with my own children; in which I observe, the following method: I take such a proportion of time as I can spare every night to discourse with each child apart. On Monday I talk with Molly, on Tuesday with Hetty, Wednesday with Nancy, Thursday with Jacky, Friday with Patty, Saturday with Charles.”
Mrs. Wesley was the one who educated her children and her homeschooling was as long as six hours. Susanna was a woman of God that regulated her house and establish order and priorities order to live a useful life. Her family woke up in the wee hours in the morning and for the hours to come the children were assigned to specific activities.
For each day of the week she set a time to spend time with each child of her own. During these hours she would get to them know them as an individual and wanted to teach them about the Lord and make sure they were growing in their faith.
When her husband was away in London, Mrs. Wesley started afternoon service that her and her children would sing pslams, and would either read short seromens from her husband or father.
Even when her children left the home, she wrote them letters of encourgement to follow Jesus Christ.
Susanna Wesley wrote meditations and scriptural commentaries for her own use. She wrote extended commentaries for instance on the Apostles Creed, the Lord's Prayer, the Ten Commandments. Alas many of these were lost in the rectory fire, but many survive."

I am reading "Lies Young Women Believe" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and Dannah Gresh with my sister in Christ. Though we are only on the 2nd chapter of this book, it is such a good book and an eye opener.
I can still remember all the lies I was told and lies that I believe. The list below are the lies I believe:
- I am ugly
- People always leave
- I will always be lonely
- Got to have a guy
- I am worthless
- Life is better if I was dead
- Unable to overcome certain sins
- Being popular is everything
- Have to be loud to get attention from guys
- Tall and skinny is better then being short
Since I was in kindergarten I was depressed until I reach the age of 16 years old. I honestly hated everyday I woke up because I knew I would deal with my useless self and that I would be put down by the way I look. I could not look at myself in the mirror and it seem everyday I would come home crying. Even at times, being at some of my family members would make me feel I was useless and ugly. All I could see was this short, skinny, worthless, and a lonely person. I am happy to say that I don't feel like I am a worthless person because God came into my life and change me and help me with depression and later this week I will put up Part 2 of this post about the "truth" I have learn by seeking and reading the Lord Word.

The wicked in his proud countenance does not seek God; God is in none of his thoughts. -Psalm 10:4 Oh, love the LORD, all you His saints! For the LORD preserves the faithful, And fully repays the proud person. -Psalm 31:23 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate. -Proverbs 8:13 When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the humble is wisdom. -Proverbs 11:2 Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. Proverbs 16:18 A man’s pride will bring him low, But the humble in spirit will retain honor. Proverbs 29:23 The pride of your heart has deceived you, You who dwell in the clefts of the rock, Whose habitation is high; Youwho say in your heart, ‘Who will bring me down to the ground? -Obadiah 1:3 And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted. -Matthew 23:12 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “ God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble." -James 4:6
The proud heart is the thing that blinds us about our true spirtual condition, we start to think higly of ourselves. It is pride that will distance us from God.

I pray that You will be my first love in my heart and that I will have an increased desire to read, obey Your Word and worship You. I pray that I will be set free from any bitterness, anger and worry. That my life will be characterized by love, forgiveness, and God-centered trust. Lord put in me a habit to turn to You first when I am faced with trials. Renew my mind and grow me into the woman of God, You want me to be.
