Romans 12:17

"Repay no one for evil" Romans 12:17,



This verse hit me this morning because I am dealing with a person who is treating me wrong and I to be honest, I want to treat them the same way. But quickly, I repented for evening thinking that. It is hard sometimes, to just stand there and let people treat me wrong. I am learning that I will have to work with people who will be very disrespectful. In turn, I need to show them the love of Christ. I can be a witness to those who treat me or someone I know wrong, by showing the Christ love.


1 Peter 3:8,9
Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous;not returning evil for evil or reviling for reviling,


1 Thessalonians 5:15
See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.

My wife told me there was another Asia on 20sb so I had to check out the blog. Very inspirational and encouraging. It is hard to show that Christ love, but if we continue to dig into the Word, like you're doing, we can keep growing. Be blessed. Peace.

Thanks for checking out my blog and the comment. It is funny when I meet someone else name Asia, I meet many asia's before.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Good for you for not reacting out in your flesh. I know it's soooo hard to do. Keep on meditating on Gods Word. That's the only way to keep walking in the Spirit!!

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.
