Spiritual Emphasis Week

One thing that I can honesty say that I love about the college I go to, is that I love Spiritual Emphasis week, so far my college has brought some really good guest speakers. This time they brought a husband, father of eight children, pastor, professor and an entrepreneur. He is also a founder and pastor of the Hub University church in Florida.

Day 1: Son/Daughter of God (Identity in Christ)
Day 2: Sanctification
Day 3: Purity

I learn so much this week and I am so happy that the Pastor Rivera came to talk to us. It is so important for us Christians to know who we are in Christ and that we can trust God. For me it can be so hard to let go and let God do what he will. It's so hard to trust, but its God, he will never hurt me and I see that now. I always hear him say "trust me, I want hurt you" but I don't listen. But I changing my ways and I am going to trust God with everything (my hope, dreams, desires, fears, secrets, pains etc.). Since I am saved I don't have to continue in my old ways, I must turn from my sin and choose God. I’m not a slave to my sin. It is God who sanctifies us, as it says in 1 Thess. 5:23-24, "Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it." It is a process that we as Christians go through. I love the analogy of holding on to the "fake peals" which is that we hold to our old ways but God want to give us something better and that is Him. So true because I know I can be so afraid to let something’s go but I must trust God that everything will be okay. I learn something the 1st is that we must leave our life of sin, 2nd we must cleft on to God and the things of God, and 3rd is receive from what God want to do.

This week has cause to reflect on a lot of things going on in me and around me. I am ready to trust God with everything and know that He is God and he know what's best for me. My God is faithful and I want him to take control over my life and lead me.

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.
