Press On!

I'm NOT perfect, but God didn't come for the righteous but rather the weak. I am weak and I need the Lord! I am not where I need to be, but THANK GOD I am not where I use to be! Growth in God is a SLOW process!! No one is going to be perfected over night, but we need to have a heart of compassion, love, and forgiveness because God forgave us first so that we can forgive others! WE ALL MESS UP, NOT JUST SOME OF US! WE ARE ALL HYPOCRITES AT ONE POINT IN TIME, BUT IT'S WHERE YOUR HEART IS, AND TO HAVE THE GOAL OF GAINING CHRIST IS KEY! So Keep On Keepin' On, and don't give up! Forgive yourself for your mistake and press on towards the goal!!! Don't let people stop you, and don't let YOURSELF stop you either!! God Speed!! :)

Trusting Jesus Is The Way!

Wow! I haven't written in a while... probably because I haven't have internet for 4 months and just got it back! God has been doing so much in my life right now. I am in the last year of college, and at the end of the year I am going to marry my best friend and the man that God wanted me to have!!! The wedding plans are going slow because it took a while for Matt and I to realize that we want our wedding to represent God and what He wants instead of what we want for ourselves! We want to glorify God!!! As we put our faith into God, everything just seems to fall into place and it makes us realize that we are on the right path, full of prayer and trust!!!

We are not guaranteed tomorrow, so I am learning to savor every moment of every day, and my attitude towards people and life has changed and is still changing! Slowly I am realizing that there are always going to be people who are against me and the things that I do, but lately my spirit is just telling me to follow my heart! When I quit listening to others and start listening to Christ, I get so much peace! I am excited to get involved in more bible studies and fellowship with the Christians at Texas State who led me to life over 4 years ago. I fell away for a while because I started to do what other people wanted me to do instead of following the true reality, which is Christ! I am set free by the Word of God! The Spirit and the Word are my guide! I know that this is going to be a wonderful semester because I am going to take God with me wherever I go; He is the only person who knows me best!

My mom gave me a book about finding my gift. We all have gifts, and to find it and have peace with it is so key for me! I am going to search for it... and who knows, maybe I am already doing part of it! I can't wait to continue this journey with God, and I know that it took my free-will to choose Him, and by His Grace I was saved!!! I LOVE MY LORD!!!

Hopefully I can write more about my experiences this year. I got a hair cut this morning, and I prayed to have a lady who knew what she was doing... well she has cut hair for 21 years and we got to talking... she was a Christian and we talked about God! I thank God for all of the honest people He puts in my life to show me that there is still justice in this world and how the Lord is going to bring it! I love life and I know God will provide... I just have to trust :)

God Speed!!!
