Leaving a Godly Legacy

God has bless with a mentor for my second year in college. This young woman name is Khambye and I am so thankful for her. She is a graduate of Nyack College Seminary and now that she is graduated, I will miss her when she moves back to California. This woman has pour into my life and I have learn so much from her. On our last meeting me and the other mentees made her a scrapbook and wrote her a letter. That night she gave us a song called "Legacy" by Nichole Nordeman the lyrics are below:

I don't mind if you've got something nice to say about me And I enjoy an accolade like the rest You could take my picture and hang it in a gallery Of all who's who and so-n-so's that used to be the best At such'n'such ... it wouldn't matter much
I won't lie, it feels alright to see your name in lights We all need an 'Atta boy' or 'Atta girl' But in the end I'd like to hang my hat on more besides The temporary trappings of this world
I want to leave a legacy How will they remember me? Did I choose to love? Did I point to You enough To make a mark on things? I want to leave an offering A child of mercy and grace whoblessed your name unapologetically And leave that kind of legacy
I don't have to look too far or too long awhile To make a lengthly list of all that I enjoy It's an accumulating trinket and a treasure pile Where moth and rust, thieves and such will soon enough destroy
Not well traveled, not well read, not well-to-do or well bred Just want to hear instead, "Well Done" good and faithful one...

I have been thinking about legacy lately and wondering what people will say about me when I am gone. I wonder if I will be known for being a godly woman or not. I was not surrounded by godly woman of God when I was younger. It was only a few years ago that godly woman were put in my life. I want to leave a godly legacy. I know it might seem strange for most people to hear or to know this but it is true. I want be known for showing love to all people, showing Christ like love. I have a desire to one day adopted children and grow them in a christian home. I did not grow up in a Christian home, but I am praying for the privilege to pour into the children the Lord will give me one day and children that I will be surrounded by in the work that I want to do. I want to be known as a young woman of God that is known for her love for Christ, obedience to Him and a prayin woman of God. A woman that was connected to Him and had a relationship with Him. I want to be easily recognize by the Lord when I see Him.

Hey Asia, I completely agree with you. It is very important to be an example to people like 1 Timothy 4:12 says-Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. (KJV) We need to live a life so that people are given a godly example.
God Bless You!!!

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.
