No Church to Call My Own

It has been almost eight months since I have left my church and it has been a hard time not having a church to call my own. I left the church because of the false doctrine and I felt lead by the Lord to no longer to attend and tell them why I left. I did not want to believe that I was in a church that was not sound and I did not want to leave. I wrote them a letter (explaining what the Lord has been showing me and telling me what I should do) and they have not talked to me since. I know that I should follow what the Lord is telling me even if it means that people will not like what the Lord tells me to do. To this day I watch out for what pastors and people might say about the Bible, rather it is sound or not, I don’t want to be sway into believing what someone might say about the Word of God. It is so easy to be lead into false doctrine. I have been praying that the Lord will lead me to the church He has for me. I can’t wait for that day because I really want to me in a community of believers to fellowship with them. I want to be in a sound church. I have visited some churches and have found myself wanting what they have. Most of the churches have ministries, close, friendly church members, Christ center messages and their teaching is sound doctrine. I hope and pray that I will find that some day.

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.
