End of 2013

It’s hard to believe that this year is almost over. It’s New Year’s Eve 2013. I also know that I haven’t written on this blog as much as I would have liked. But school this year has kicked my butt. I hope to be better at posting in the new year at least twice a week. I have better luck posting on my book review blog. But one of my goals for 2014 is to keep a daily journal as well as a prayer and Bible study journal. So I have should have more thoughts to post. Here’s to a better 2014 and trusting the Lord.

Merry CHRISTmas

Merry CHRISTmas. May we remember and celebrate the  reason for the season. He was the King of Kings but he chose to come in the form of a little baby. He came to give us hope and His everlasting Peace.

My Testimony

I realize that I haven’t written my testimony as a blog post yet. If this blog is going to reflect by life and my Christian walk then I to share my testimony and how and when Jesus saved me. Jesus chose me first and after being drawn by the Holy Spirit I answered the call and asked Jesus to come into my heart and save me. To wash me in the blood to forgive my sins.
            As a Christian I am not perfect. I am still a work in progress. A Sinner saved by Grace. God’s amazing Grace through His Son’s blood. Jesus paid the price on the cross so that I wouldn’t have to.
            I didn’t grow up in a Christian home till this day (August 16, 2013) I am praying for my parents and my little sister’s salvation as well as my grandpas. What’s sad is the fact that both my parents have a head knowledge of Jesus but neither have a heart relationship with Him. My dad grew up in a Southern Baptist house with a praying daddy. My mom was raised Catholic until her father remarried.
            I am thankful for a praying grandma (mamaw) and a praying great grandma (granny). Who both prayed for me growing up and took me to Church and Sunday school every other Sunday. That’s how their small country Church services worked. The Pastor had two different Churches that he preached at. I am also thankful that my mom sent me to vacation Bible school every summer. Even though I didn’t realize it at the time that the seeds of the Gospel and Jesus that mamaw and granny had planted were watered.
            Then the time came for me to start middle school, and my mamaw’s  prayers for me changed(she later told me.)  She started praying that God would bring a Christian friend and her family into my life. And I didn’t know it at the time but that’s exactly what God did the first day of sixth grade. When I meet Amber. (It’s hard to believe 15 years later we are still best friends.) it was her and her mom (who become like a second mom to me) who invited me to their Church. It was through Amber that I got introduced to youth group.  Youth group was also were I meet Stephanie another friend that I’m still close to after all this time. Amber and Stephanie showed me what young Christian’s were like.
            God was using the Holy Spirit to draw me to Him all through middle school. It was in middle school that I understood something was missing. But it wouldn’t be till freshman year of high school and the events of 9/11 that I would answer the call and drawing of the Holy Spirit.
            On 9/11 I realized that life really is but a vapor and that we are not promised tomorrow. It was 9/12 the Wednesday  after 9/11 that I accepted to call of the Holy Spirit and asked Jesus to save this sinner. However it wasn’t until Maya 2002 that I finished yielding  and followed through with Baptism.
            Even now I am still learning to daily to give God complete control; I am still in the sanctification process, and I will be until God   calls me home. Even though Jesus never promised easy He did promise that He would never leave me nor forsake me. When I become a Christian I discovered what being a Christian could cost me. I ended up losing many of my so called friends. I also almost became an outcast in my high school. But however I gained so much more my sins forgiven and eternal life, and a relationship with Jesus. I also discovered who my brothers and sisters in Christ were, my true friends were the ones that would stand by me no matter what. I gained a Church family that are sometimes closer to me than my birth family.

Time Flies

It's hard to believe, but my little sis is almost a senior. Yesterday she got her class ring, and had her first formal. Her Junior Ring dance. She wanted simple elegance with her hair and her dress which she got. The name I gave her style was 30's glam, cause to me that's what it was.  I'll post pictures as soon as they come back.

It seems like yesterday she was starting kindergarten, and now she is one year away from graduating high school. Where did the time go. She has grown into a wonderful young lady and I can not wait to see what the future holds.

Why I chose the Bible Verses for 2013 that I did

One of the Bible Verses that was a verse for the year for 2012 is making its way into 2013; 2 Peter 3:18 because just like last year I want to continue to grow in my relationship with Christ. I may even make it a life verse as well. I am using Psalms 119:105 because I want God’s word to lead me and light my path. Proverbs 31:30 was chosen because I want to be a woman after God’s own heart. I am also choosing Lamentations 3:24 I want to learn to wait on God’s timing more than I am now. God’s timing is always best and perfect. Way better than my timing could be. God only wants what’s best for His children me included.
