A Wonderful Week

I had the opportunity to go visit my sisters in Christ this past Friday, in Maryland. I had a great time and I am grateful my sister invited me and brought my ticket. I went to their church for a Proverbs class and I just loved it. The pastor wife went through some chapters in Proverbs. What really stood out to me was the fear of the Lord, I feel sometimes as though I don't fear God because I seem to keep turning back to my sin. But I have been on my knees praying that I will have godly fear of the Lord. I really love the Book of Proverbs it has so much to say as to what we Christians should and should not be doing. Then later on that night I went to a single fellowship and was really great. We went through the book of James and we also watch a movie with Joshua Harris about being single. After the movie the women had really great conversations about being single. The next day, which was Sunday I had a great time in the church and the pastor gave a great message. I really can't stop thinking about his mention of false doctrines that are taught in some churches. For me I have been in one of those churches and I have left the church. I'm seeking God's face about that decision and I still wondering what I am going to do. I miss being in a church. I am been praying that God will guide me in me in finding a church that is sound, that is Christ center, and the has a loving atmosphere.

On Monday, I went to Washington DC to have a tour and it was really fun. I saw the State Capitol and other cool places. My sisters in Christ and I went to a Museum and it was such an exciting experience to see art and many famous black people. A picture that I will never forget is the one were Martin Luther King Jr. was in his caste and his younger daughter look at him with a big expression of I can't believe that is my dad.

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.
