Going on Vacation

I am going on vacation, to South Carolina and I can't wait. I am really excited about seeing my family and going to visit some museums. I hope the weather will be nice because I need some sun in my life right now. The weather in NY has be rainy and though I LOVE me rain, I also need some sun. I hope my visit in S.C. will be pleasant, I just can't wait to see my family.


I wont be posting for a while because the next weeks will be busy and I need to keep my focus of these scholarships essays. I have a lot of essays that will be due and I just want to get them out the way and put my hard work in each essay. I pray that the Lord will help me and provide the money for my school tuition. I know that He is in control, I am just leaning on Him and trusting Him. God is Faithful and my Provider.

Biblical Women From the Past

I am doing a research/project of women of God I hope to emulate, a woman that is a good role model; someone I can look up to. I know many girls who look up to women that are not godly, that are flirtatious, and women who don't glorify God with their life. As a young woman I want to glorify God with my life, I want to set an example and not be a follower of this world. The list below shows what I will be blogging over time.


Write a biography about each women
Write a poem about each women
Write quotes from these women
Find Scriptures that demonstrate godly and spiritual traits

I am excited about doing this research/project, I will be taking my time because I want to get my information right about the women that I come across . I hope that the Lord will show me what He want to show me and teach me. How wonderful it will be to get to know the godly women from the past. I want to get to know them, want to know they done with their life, how they handle situations, etc.
Just a note: I got th…

OH MY GOODNESS

I had to write a post on these delicious and sweet plumcot fruit. I heard my mother talking to her mom about these luscious fruit and they way she describe them I knew I had to get one of my own. So the next day while I was at work, I got me a plumcot, rinse the fruit off, paid 85 cents and ate me some plumcot. And I must say WOW this fruit was SOOOOOOOO SWEET, I was like, how could a small fruit be SO GOOD? I thank God for that fruit it is so good.

Bible Verse

This verse stood out to me:


The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever. Is. 32:17


Lies That I Have Been Told and Believed Part 1

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 leaveI will always be lonely Got to have a guyI am worthlessLife is better if I was deadUnable to overcome certain sinsBeing popular is everythingHave to be loud to get attention from guysTall and skinny is better then being shortSince 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 shor…

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's day to all the dad's out there. I am thankful that you take care of your family and being the provider and leader of the house.

BIBLE VERSE

I struggling with fear, and there are times I become so afraid at night I can't go to sleep. I am afraid to to die, afraid to get on air planes (which I must say I use to love air planes), afraid to be alone, anywhere. I am afraid of getting older and getting into trouble I can't get out of. I am afraid of what's to come, but I came across the bible verse Isaiah 12:2


Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation."
This Scripture has help me to realize that the Lord is my strength. So happy I can talk to the Lord about whatever is going on with me. It might not be tomorrow that my fear will go away but I know if I stay in the Lord's face I will be deliver. I will trust and not be afraid.

Writing Letters

Everyone now a days send emails and letter writing is hardly heard of. People use to always write letters but now with the telephones and Internet, it is less likely that anyone will find a letter from a loved one in their mail. It is so easy to write an email and send it off but when someone take their time out to write a letter it says(well to me) something different. In in a letter a person takes their time to write all their thoughts in a letter. With a letter people are most likely to put that letter in a special place and save it. People can always come back to that letter and read the words of someone that love them. I love to write letters to people with encouraging words. I have wrote my uncle in jail just to let him know who is God and that I am thinking about him and praying for him. I have also wrote many other people in my family and they have appreciate the letter. With a letter you can put all the love you have for someone down.

Pride

I was asked in a book I am reading How does pride manifest itself? How does God veiw it? What are the consequences of having a proud heart? I did my research in the Bible and found out:

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 wi…

Raising Maidens of Virtue

I first heard about this book on a website called visionforum.com and I was very curious as to what this book is about. I read the book and now that I am finish I am happy I read this book. It has taught me a lot about femininity. This book has encourage me to put aside the things of this world and take on to becoming a godly woman. I really hope that mothers and daughters read this book together because it talks to biblical womanhood.

Prayer

Dear Abba

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.
