Day 2- Your first Love

My first love would be Jesus Christ. I know for some people that concept might be hard to understand but it is Him. I was never a girl that was boy crazy or had a lot of boys wanting to "be" with me. I guess as a young girl I use to worry about it a lot and wonder why guys did not like me. I think it was because I was not aggressive toward boys. I use to hate that about myself and it use to be a struggle with me because everyday I wished I was someone else.

But now I am mature and I see things a lot different than I use to. I have to say the day I receive Christ Jesus into my heart is when I found love. I no longer foolishly looking for love and wanting attention from guys. My first love is Jesus.

What I love about Him:
Sacrifice His life for me and willing He did it.
Love me when I don't deserve it
That He first love me
He sustains me
He strengthens me
Protects me
He cares for me
He is my helper

This is such a beautiful post Asia; there is nothing like knowing there is no one that can love us like Jesus. Praise God for all that he is doing in your life. Jesus is the best love any one can ask or hope for; Jesus is also carzy about you Asia:)

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.
