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.

WOW.........I am 20 years old and getting old LOLOLOL. I just want to thank God for letting me make it this far in life. I woke up this morning and spent time with the Lord just praying and seeking His face. I am truly thankful and honestly did not think I would make it this far. I feel so happy to know that I am 20 years old and I have the Lord is my Savior, there is no better feeling. He is always with me and loves me. I have life because of the Savior.
Please forgive me of all of my sins I have done Lord. Thank you for this day, you made me and before I was born you have chosen me. Thank you Lord for drawing me nearer to You and saving me.I ask that the years to come, that everything I do will glorify your Holy name. You are an awesome God and deserve all praise and worship. I love you Lord and thank you for everything. I pray that you will lead me and that I will always lean on You for everything Lord. I rest in you, because You are me comforter.

Mold me Father into the woman of God you want me to be and pray that I will love You with all my heart, that I will never compromise you for anything.

- 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 this idea from a couple of pages in the book "Raising Maidens of Virtue" by Stacy McDonald

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 leave
- I will always be lonely
- Got to have a guy
- I am worthless
- Life is better if I was dead
- Unable to overcome certain sins
- Being popular is everything
- Have to be loud to get attention from guys
- Tall and skinny is better then being short
Since 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 short, skinny, worthless, and a lonely person. I am happy to say that I don't feel like I am a worthless person because God came into my life and change me and help me with depression and later this week I will put up Part 2 of this post about the "truth" I have learn by seeking and reading the Lord Word.

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 will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted. -Matthew 23:12 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: “ God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble." -James 4:6
The proud heart is the thing that blinds us about our true spirtual condition, we start to think higly of ourselves. It is pride that will distance us from God.

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.
