Happy Father's Day

To all the father's in the world. I want thank you all for taking care of your families; being a provider and protector. This day is sometimes is hard for me because I don't have my dad in my life since he passed away with prostate cancer when I was eight. I decide to post some memories I had with him:

1) I remember for Halloween him coming in my room to scare me...I thought it was so funny because I knew it was my dad
2) I remember him teaching me how to ride my pink bike....He was patient with me as he taught me
3) My dad had this white Cadillac and to me I thought it was the most beautiful car and it was so clean. I loved that he would take me places in his car.
4) I loved it when he would take me places like McDonald's
5) Though I don't remember, I saw a picture of him and I  dancing together at a wedding. I thought it was so cool to see that picture.

I can't lie I still miss my dad. But I do have an Heavenly Father, that I see as my ABBA. I remember when I was younger, I would pray that I would have a "father and daughter" relationship with Him. I my ABBA to protect me, to love me, to teach me.....I just want to continue my relationship with Him. I thank ABBA for being my Father and always
being with me. I love Him and thank Him for all things.

What a beautiful tribute to your father. I know that Father's Day can be very bittersweet for many people. But, yes, we do have our Heavenly Father, and He is everything and more than we could ever want!

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.
