Happy Valentines Day!!!

ABBA, I love You so much. You are my love and there is no greater love than Yours. Thank You for everything. I pray that I will fall deeply in love with You everyday.


What a wonderful prayer! I found your blog when I was trying to google the verse from Phil. that you posted on Feb 1st--how wonderful to stumble upon a fellow sister's blog site! Reading your blog reminds me of my college days (it wasn't that long ago--only 4 years ago but it feels like forever!) and how often I prayed that God would fill me completely and that I would desire nothing else. I remember memorizing Ps 42 and making it my prayer..."As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God." ...Wondering if God would ever have me marry (or was I called to be celibate?!) I prayed that I would be satisfied in him alone no matter where he led me. I look back and wonder what I would have said if someone would have told me that in only 4 short years I'd be married with 3 children! (yep--that's basically one kid a year!) God is so good and I am so glad He didn't answer so many of my prayers because He knew my heart better than I knew my own! "Thy will be done..." what a powerful prayer!
I know this is such a long comment but I have to also say I LOVE your pictures of campus! The one you have on top could be a Thomas Kinkade painting! And your header verse is one that my 3 yr. old and I recently memorized with Hermie's Scripture memory songs! I also love way of the master, what a great tool, and I loved your link to the modest clothing website--I didn't even know there was anything like that now a days! it is so hard to find clothes that are modest--thanks for that link! May God bless you so abundantly and we both be used by Him to bring Him glory!
In Christ, Pauline

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.
