Day- 11 Your Siblings

Brother 1
I have a lot of memories of it just being us two growing up in Missouri. The best memory is when it was Christmas (we were 7 and 8). We had had so many presents to open that I myself fell asleep. Though I am older than him, he calls me big little sister. My brother is taller than me but I am still the oldest. I love it when he picks me up every time he sees me after I come home from college vacation.

Brother 2
My second brother I get along well with. I think we are a lot of alike when it come to our personality. One thing I love about him is his eating habits. My brother loves to eat, he could eat more than 6 hot dogs for dinner. He loves to play video games (like all teen boys) with his friends.

Sister 1
I remember as a young girl going over her house to visit my little sister. My dad would take over her moms house for a day and I would play with her. When my family moved to NY, I lost contact with her for more the 12 years. I would always pray to God that I would be able to reconnect when my sister. In the year of 2008, is when on facebook my sister request to be my friend. After confirming that we were sisters, I am very thankful to know about my sister.

Sister 2
My little sister is twelve and loves to be with her friends. I know from my social work (study on adolescents), that girls her age rather be with her friends. She loves to play the Wii games and watch movies. As of right now her favorite TV show is The Game.

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.
