Those Days

I loved it when there were times I could be alone with God for hours and never get tried. I loved that as the day went on I would jot a list of things I wanted to talk to God about. I loved the quiet moments in life and the times I would meditate on the Lord and His Word. My desire is to never let my life get so full that I never had a chance when I could just be alone with God. There are times when I do let the fullness of this life get all of my focus and form then on my life is out of control. I feel like there is no order in my life (when those busy days come). I am afraid that I will let months go by, get so wrap around the world that I will lose the importance of life. My Savior is the most important thing and I need to put Him first before all things. I’m not saying that other things are not important, I just saying that God comes first in the morning and then the other stuff. I want to get everything in order but I feel so out of order that I just don’t know how the get things back on the right track. I need prayer that I will be diligent in everything and that I won’t get so wrap up in the world. I want to be close to God, I don’t want to ever feel spiritual dry. In those tough days I want to get closer to God; to lean on Him.

We all have days when we let the fullness of life distract us. Pray in the car, while you're washing dishes, etc. And take advantage of the moments when you can spend time with God uninterrupted. As a mom of 5, I know exactly what you mean. Time alone is a rarity for me, but I just do the best I can.

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.
