   You know there are so many ways God can speak to you! Through pain, happiness, power, worship… SO many ways! And he can bring people to you in such unique ways! For example, I have such wonderful teachers! They are so wise and know their stuff (about God) Like Mrs. Williams last year was there through everything! I remember the day I told her I didn’t have any more health issues she hugged me so tight and told me to run! I was smiling ear to ear of course! That whole class that day she kept smiling at me! I can remember some days I would come in a be really tired and she would make sure I was ok like 50509394839 times! What a sweet lady she is!
   Through her teaching and her great heart I met one of the most amazing girls ever, Katherine Williams! Such an amazing person! So wise and so faithful! I love her so much! I am so not sure how I would be able to make it without my friends like her! God is crazy sometimes on how he gives us people but most of the time it is the best thing that could ever happen!
   This year I have a wonderful Geography teacher who just connects with me! What a wise woman she is! Her daughter is a missionary in Africa and is doing great things for God! Her mothers wisdom helped build her! God provides everything you need… Some days I am just so down then when I go to that class and I am able to talk to her and just tell her about what is going on, I feel better. God gives you people so you can just talk to them! He never has let me go without friends. Even when I thought I was alone I had so many people standing beside me… My savior would be one of them.
   All I am trying to say is that no matter how God puts people into your life, they’re there for a reason and they are going to love you all the way to the end if God has given them to you. Love all the amazing people in my life. Thank you Jesus!

    For all things great come from a great God who sent his son to die for you and erase all of your sins. They are not invisible, they have not just left for a moment to give you a rest… THEY ARE GONE! Vanished into the fire. The pain may still be there from the mistakes but they are only ashes! Let them blow in away in the wind.
   If you think about it sin is a good thing. It teaches you things that you may have never learned through perfection. You may stand with a group of people but in the end you will be alone because if those people aren’t faithful to God what makes you think that they would be faithful to you? If they have never experienced a faithful relationship it is almost positive that they wont change or that they cant be there for you… For me it is I learn by experience! I have to live it all out before I actually understand why it is wrong or something I shouldn’t do.
   Remember when you were little and you would go to McDonalds and they would give you a toy in your happy meal? My mom never let me have mine until I finished eating… Well, lets  say that you really want that toy so you open it up anyway.. Your mom takes it away and you end up with no toy at all! It totally stinks but you understand that you need to obey and listen to your mom… You probably wont open your toy before you eat again will you? You need to do the right thing. But when you make mistakes they make you stronger!
    Strength is something you need to survive! This life gets hard and yes God is going to pull you through but you need to learn to use your own strengths God have given you. He will place pain upon your tray and you will have to rely on him to send you the strength you need!

Who is your provider?
Do you place all of your faith in him?
Do you fully trust him!?
YOU NEED TO! Put everything you are in him!
The God of the universe!

A Love unchangable!

God loves you so much and it is very important that you know that! He doesn't make bad things happen to you but he allows them to. He wants you to search for him and find him! He wants you to see how strong he is compared to your small strengths! He wants you to gain in knowledge of him and how he LOVES you. Throughout life the only thing that should matter is his love and your love for him. It just makes me tingle inside to know that I am loved no matter what! Tears even begin to pour down my face! His love carries me so far and so light! <3 Lord you are all I need.

A verse I'd love to share.

 From Psalms: But you, LORD, are a shield around me,
   my glory, the One who lifts my head high.
4 I call out to the LORD,
   and he answers me from his holy mountain.

Tonight, I attended church with some new friends that I met on facebook. They go to my school but they are older so we had not actually met... But anyways, they are super sweet girls and I already feel like I am apart of a family there. The worship was amazing and so open which is what I need so bad in my life right now... I hold everything in thinking that people will judge me because I raise my hands and get into the music... At this place, everyone looks the same: happy, open and worshiping! I have never been to a more spirit filled place in my whole life. You can feel God in the room and his love surrounding each person as they seek him! Our God always supplies us with what we need when we need it. He doesn't always give us what we want which makes us grow stronger in patience, obedience, and our FAITH! If our God loves us, sinners, so much that he can send his only son to die for us, we need to honor him with our life, bodies and our actions. Your body is a temple of the Lord and your faith is how you share that with other people. BE BOLD! Be confident!

"All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved." Matthew 10:22

Africa: No Go!

So, it is official. I will not be going to Africa this year. I do believe that God is only preparing me for what is to come and teach me obedience. Through this I have learned that I need to obey my parents and God will bless me once I do that... I'm not going to just stop my missionary acts...I might go to New York! New York is in a great need for God's love and a savior. New York is one of the most populated places in the world... I guarantee that there is at least one family of every race on this planet living in New York City!
   So now I ask for prayer that God will allow this trip to happen. What a great experience it will be to see New York and teaching the word of God to millions of people! I will never stop blogging about my missions.... <3 I love how God is using me!

Keeping the Faith!

This morning me and my dad got in a fight about my trip... I can't seem to convince him of what God is trying to do in my life. I think he is more nervous than anything. I am his only child and he is just afraid of me being gone for so long. I know that nothing will happen to me because I have God right beside me! If it wasn't for God I wouldn't have even considered going on this mission trip. I know that this is what God wants me to do with my life. There is no doubt in my aching little heart! I can still remember the moment i decided that this is what I wanted to do with my life. God easily slipped in and said "Ok! This is the path you will take!"
    I pray that Jesus, my savior, you will soften the heart of my father. Show him what God has showed me. Show him how this is what I need to do. Please! In your name Amen!
