As the days count down to Christmas, I have found that Christmas is becoming more materialistic and commericialized than anything. When you walk into a dept store you are greeted with "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas". Walking down aisles you see people so worried about if they are going to get what is on a Christmas list. What happened to Christmas, the time of the year when giving is better than receiving? What happened to celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ? Jesus Christ died for our sins; the world didn't die for us yet the world engulfs us and drains us from our faith and turns our focus away from God. When celebrating Christmas this year remember what Christmas is all about. It's more than about Santa..it's about God giving us His only son and His son dying for us. Do you think Walmart would die for you??? Hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed Christmas!! And don't forget to celebrate Jesus' birthday! <3

Jesus loves us no matter what we've done or who we are or where we been. He is always there with open arms and is never too far to reach for. As we hold our head down in shame; He will lift us up no matter what sin we have committed. Lord, thank you for loving a sinner like me. Thank you for lifting me up when those around me beat me down. Thank you, Lord for being my rock and my shelter. Thank you, Lord for loving me!

I have decided to make a dream of mine come true! I am taking flying lessons. It is amazing when you are 3,000 ft in the air and see God's creation for miles. I love it! No matter how some people will drag you, beat you down, and so forth...With God ALL things are possible!!!!

Sometimes when we plan our life it does't work out as we plan. When it doesn't work out we get frustrated to the point we want to give up. A few times this week I have felt this way and I'm sure others have also. After all the fuss, I realize GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL and ALWAYS WILL BE!!! I have come to the conclusion that God has a plan and I need to let God handle things. The road that God sets me on is the road I will travel and it will be a blessed journey!
“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” – Phil 4:19
‘Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Isaiah 41:10
He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be moved. Psalm 62:6
And let us not get tired of doing what is right, for after a while we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't get discouraged and give up. ~Galatians 6:9
So many times I think to myself "Why bother?" then I hear a little voice saying "Keep going!" There are days where I would like to give up and say I have failed and walk away but then I realize that after this world is gone there is a more beautiful place called Heaven waiting for me. When trials come your way and you feel like giving up always remember Who thought you were worth dying for. Never give up...because Jesus never gave up on you and He never will!! No matter how much the rain pours....keep your head up!!!
