And we all, with unveiled face,
beholding the glory of the Lord
,are being transformed into the same
image from one degree of glory to another.
For this comes from the Lord
who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18
As some of you might know, I am a social work major in college (note my "about me" spot on my blog). I plan on working with children who are in elementary schools or even younger than that. I am learning this year even more than last year, that life is truly unexpected. Well, it seems that I will be going for my internship this summer. Just weeks ago, I planned on going for a summer camp job in either PA or CH, but things have changed. I have been looking at Social Services Organization and praying that everything will work out. The summer internship will be part of my college course, which means I will have to have money to pay for this class. Whatever happens, I am just praying and asking that everything will work out.
Heaven knows I've done wrong; mercy helped me see I've been living a lie. And while writing this song, thinking 'bout Your goodness I started to cry. Yes, oh oh oh grace; what would I do without grace (do without grace)
Hide behind a painted smile; you lash out and sing while you're spiritually down, yeah There's no need to sit in denial; He knows all about it and understands why (yes He does) Oh oh oh grace (oh grace oh grace); what would I do without grace Oh oh oh grace; where would I be, where would I be without grace
How can you love me still when I've done wrong (grace) And how can I make it through this angry storm (oh grace) Say oh oh oh grace; what would I do without Your grace Oh oh oh grace; where would I be without grace (where would I be without grace)
What can make me whole in my soul (grace grace) What can wash my sin (grace) Say grace; what would I do without Your grace (couldn't make it)
Tell you what lately I've learned; He picks me up whenever I…
Since Jaselin has been on this earth. She is still in the hospital but the doctors say that she is getting better. I am praying for my niece daily and thanking God for her. I can't believe that every day she is getting better. She is gaining weight, can no longer see her bones and veins as much. So far we can tell she has her mother's nose. I can't wait to see her again.
I have decided to change the title of my blog from Ambassador for Christ to A Lady in the Making. To be honest when I started this blog five years ago, I did not have a meaningful reason to title my blog, "Ambassador for Christ." But now, I am 21 years old and a lot has happen to me last semester in college and even this semester in college, a lot has happen. I believe that God has continued to show me many things in myself and still working on me. It has been brought to my attention that my childhood issues have not been fully worked out. All that I went through still hurts and I have been praying about these issues. I am asking God for His help and seeking help from others. I am praying that God would completely deliver me. So I title this blog, "A Lady in the Making," because of the changes I am going through right now as I write this.
Over a period of weeks I will make changes to my blog.
1 O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. 2 You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I’m far away. 3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home. You know everything I do. 4 You know what I am going to say even before I say it, Lord. 5 You go before me and follow me. You place your hand of blessing on my head. 6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too great for me to understand!
Wow, I am amazed by God and who He is. Today I just want to praise God for letting my niece come through on Saturday alive and well. She is only 1 pound and 5 ounces, but she is here. I pray that while in this hospital that her health will continue to get better. I can't explain the feeling I felt when I saw her. This little girl has everything she needs and she is still developing. I saw her while she was sleeping so peacefully. As if she had no idea what was going on. I saw her stomach raise, toes and leg move. All I could do was pray and be amazed at this little baby that is my niece. Continue to pray......
Today, I praise my God. I was told a week ago that my niece would be born early because my brother girlfriend had high blood pressure. Well, today the baby was born, premature. Everything seems to be okay and the baby will be in the hospital for two months on a close watch. I am just excited that they are both okay. The baby name is Jeslin and I thank God that she is okay. Soon I hope to put pictures up.
