God's Word:  Trust in Him at all times you people.
Pour out your heart before Him.
God is a refuge for us
Psalm 62:8 
Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him.
The help of my countenance and my God.
Psalm 42: 11

Wait on the Lord; Be of  good courage,
and He shall strengthen your heart.
 Wait, I say, on the Lord
Psalm 27:14

Quotes:
The decision's you're making today will impact your tomorrows-
 Priscilla Shirer Idleness is but the devils home for temptation and for unprofitable, distracting musings.
 John Piper

Faith isn't the ability to believe long and far into the misty future.
It's simply taking God at His Word and taking the next step.

Sometimes, I'm alone in my thoughts.

Finally It Is Here!!!

My Master of Social Work Diploma from Temple University I started graduate school last year and I was excited. The program was advance standing and the courses were fit into one year and it was hard! There were many struggles, for example finding a job that did not conflict with my class or internship hours. My days consist of late night studying, going to professors for extra help and praying to God to help me do well in my classes. I worked hard and I am glad to be done. Glad to say I did well with my GPA too. Right now I am looking for a job and hoping to find volunteer opportunities working with Veterans or hospital settings. My days since I have graduated are tough but I am looking forward to what is next in life. Question: For those that graduated with a degree, was it hard to find employment? How did you handle the job search and the rejections?

Journal Entry # 9 -Life is Unknown.

Image
Abba, Good morning. I hear the birds this morning and they are beautiful. Your love is beautiful. I cannot believe how much You love us. I cannot help but think, time and time I have failed such a sinner saved by Your grace. I ask that You please make me new, wash me, free up my mind and heart of things that will not bring glory to Your name. I ask for grace in my life, that your lead my life and take control. I am young and I am clueless about the future. But You, God I rest in, my provider, and my strength. I love You so much.

2.28.09 I wrote this in college in NY and now I live in Philadelphia. There are struggles in my life now that I am going through. I have cried and felt frustrated but one thing I am sure about is my God. He is my strength and refuge. I don't know what is next in my life and when this storm in my life will be over but God is faithful no matter what I go through, it is good to know that God is still in control and His eyes are on me. 

Journal Entry # 8- My Valentines Day

Image
Abba...today is Valentines Day...I am not dating or married but one thing I know is that You are my love. Your love for me is unconditional, true and You never hurt me. Thank You for loving me. Some might be sad (on this day) because they don't have a boyfriend or girlfriend or even married. But I can say that I am happy. It is You who loves me. Thank You for loving me. As Your child, Your daughter, I want my love for You to be true, to fall deeply in love with You.

Bible Verse

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

Journal Entry #7

Image
Abba, it is because of You that I have life. I desire to the godly woman You called me to be. So whatever You have me to go through, things I need to know and learn, let it be. I surrender all to You and ask that You lead me always. Lead me to walk in Your ways and to forsake old self. I don't want to be like the world but like You. I want to live in obedience to Your Word, so teach me to do so...I want to grow closer to You, to be connected with You. You are all I have and I love You...Please be the head of my life.  1/9/09  

Journal Entry #6- Desires

Image
Abba, Thank You for everything. I know I am here because of You....so teach me to number my days, to walk in Your ways. To live this life for You...I pray to grow in patience, diligence and live in obedience to Your Word. As a young woman, I don't want to live in foolishness, to give into my flesh because the temptation is strong. I know You are my God and will always help me. I don't have the desires I use to have. My desires is You. To know You for myself, to have a relationship with You. I don't want to waste the time I have. Time goes by fast, before I  know it I will be 30 years old. Use me Abba, now as You can. I pray in Your name. Amen.

Abba, I ask that You would forgive me of every sin that I have done. Forgive me for my anger. It is something I do and I need Your grace......I am glad I struggle because if I did not there would be no need to get closer to You.

Happy 25th Birthday

Image
Wow, I can't believe today is my 25th Birthday. I am very thankful that I have made it this far. I never thought I would make it to age 18 let alone 25, but I did. I give thanks to my Love, who is my everything. Without my Abba I would not be anything. Thank You my Lord for saving me. Thank You for showing me who You are and what You can do. Thank You for loving me when no one else did. I love You. Pray that I would fall deeply in love with You everyday and to live a life that is completely surrendered to You. Take my life and do as You please. I am Yours.

Journal Entry #2

I love You so much. Let me fall deeply in love with You. When I don't feel like getting into Your Word, help me to read the Word. When I don't feel like doing anything help me to be a doer of the Word. I want my heart to always be for You.

Journal Entries #1

I have decided that I will put up weekly post on my journal entries. I started my first journal in 2008 and as of 2013 I have 8 journals. My journals are my prayers to God, thoughts about life and school. My journals are full of prayers, sadness, struggles, confessions, fears and joys. I hope that my entries will be a testament of who God is and how amazing He is. I know sometimes we forget who God is and how good He is.  I like to use these post to reflect on what God is has done and continues to do in my life. I hope these post are encouragements.

Week 1: Trust
Abba, Good morning. Thank you for waking me up this day.....I might not always understand but You are God, I can't expect you to do what I want you to do on my terms .....I pray that I will remember that You know much more than I. I trust You. I am putting my trust in a faithful God. Thank You Abba. Love You. I pray that I will always love, trust and surrender to You. Invade my life. Be the center of my life.
