Can I have just a few minutes of your time? ~GOD

God wants a little bit of our time so He can share with us His love and His words. Tonight in discipleship class we talked about being diligent and disciplined. There are four steps in completing a course of action: desire, decision, determination and discipline. Consider a person who desires to meet with God before going to work. he realizes that in order to do so he must get up early so he decides to get up at 6:30am. The next day he oversleeps because his desire and his decision by themselves could not get him out of bed. He then determines to use an alarm clock to help him get up. But the real test comes when the alarm goes off. Discipline must come into focus. He must shut off the alarm clock and choose not to go back to sleep. Good habits can be developed as a result of consistent discipline. Consistency requires trust in the strength God gives. It involves heart, thought and effort on a daily basis. Jesus Christ gave all His love and all His time to die on the cross for us; we owe it to Him to give Him our time and our love. Make no excuses on why you can't spend time with God in any situation. God doesn't give you excuses and He is always there for you. Why can't you be there for him? Don't let it be too late.

How does your garden grow?

See to it that no one misses the Grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. ~ Hebrews 12:15

Does your garden look beautiful with vibrant colored flowers or is it over grown with weeds? Tending to a garden can be hard work. Tending to a Christian life can be hard work as well. Just like a garden can become overrun by weeds so can the life of a Christian. In our walk it is very important to watch what and who comes into our garden because just like a weed it will come in and suffocate what we have planted and soon our garden will start to die. Just like with our journey with God. If we are not careful the devil can send forth his demons (weeds) to lurk around what we have established. We all know that what took you years to build can be destroyed over night. Be careful who you call friends because they reflect who you are! We also need to remember we can't mingle and mix two different lives together and expect God to be ok with it. If we are for God we need to act like it. When we don't we are allowing "weeds" to invade our "garden". Weeds suffucate and drain the soil of important nutrients and prevent beautiful things to grow. As in life if we allow one "weed" to come into our life it can multiply into more and soon enough your spiritual life is dying by taking us away from God. As we tend to our garden we need to sow seeds. A great verse to read is Matthew 13:3-9
3And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 4And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: 5Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: 6And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.7And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: 8But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.9Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
God wants us to be a successful seed; to grow in His glory. Let's look in our garden and clear out the weeds that prevent us from being what God wants us to be.

Why do I hold on?

Why do I hold on when I feel like there is no hope and no point...because God asked me to. The pain we feel doesn't compare to the joy that's coming. God has a perfect plan for all of us and He knows how the ending is. When I feel like giving up God gives me a little push and whispers "Hold on....the joy is coming!" God has faith in us and we need to have faith in Him because every promise He promises us- He keeps! He will never let us down. So when God tells you to hold on...Hold on..He has something good in store for you!

Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine. ~Song of Solomon 1:2

When the world walks out.....God is always there!

I have learned the more I am not into the world I see things differently. The world can be cold and cruel and it's sad to say it's not going to get better. The world has nothing for me but God has everything for me. When I needed the world...the world was no where to be found. Every time when the walls came crumbling down- the people I thought were my friends turned their backs but God has always been there with open arms. God, I thank you for being here for me. I know I stumble but You are always there to help me. Thank you, God!!!

" not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.... Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good." Romans 12:2,9

"If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you." John 15:19-20

"I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world." John 17:14-18

I have learned the more I am not into world I see things differently. The world can be cold and cruel and it's sad to say it's not going to get better. The world

Have you ever loved somebody....

Have you ever loved someone that took your breath away...someone who even the thought of them made you smile? I miss everything....I loved you then, I love you now, and I will always love you!

This past week I lost a very loving friend named Ruth. She was the sweetest person you could ever talk to. She added me as a friend on facebook and we began to talk and become friends. I think God had a hand in that!! Everyday in my inbox was an email of encouraging words and advice. She enjoyed helping people. I have caught myself already looking for emails that I know are not there. I miss her so much! It's hard to become friends with someone and then lose them. She told me in an email that when God gives you a gift- cherish it because that is the greatest gift you can ever get. I cherish her words and will always remember our conversations. She also told me to always tell the people you love that you love them because one day you won't be able to. Ruth was a wonderful friend and I know that she is in heaven looking down. Ruth, you will always be in my heart and thank you for all your wise words! Thank you for all your help and all the faith you had! Lord, I thank you for putting her in my life! Rest in peace Ruth aka GrannyB! I love you dear friend!!

In memory of Ruth Brasington
Angels in the room

She’s close to death , but she is not afraid
Angels waiting for the order, to carry her away
They’re gathered around her bed side
She’s the only one who sees
She will draw her final breath , and away with them she’ll leave

Angels in the room , she’s run her final race
They come to carry her to heaven
there to see her savior’s face
Angels in the room, to take her to a great reward
No need for sadness or gloom, there are angels in the room

He’s not long for this world, there’s a better one to come
He’s think’in about that great reunion , with the father and the son
His family by his bedside, he says children can’t you see
Angels standing all around us, it’s time for me to leave

Angels in the room, he’s run his final race
They come to carry him to heaven
There to see his savior’s face
Angels in the room, to take him to his great reward
No need for sadness or gloom, there are angels in the room

When it comes a time for leaven
And you see the fights are long
You won’t have to worry friend
You won’t be alone

Angels in the room, when you run your final race
They will carry you to heaven
There to see your savior’s face
Ooh.. Angels in the room, to take you to your great reward
No need for sadness or gloom, they’ll be angels in the room
No need for sadness or gloom, there are angels in the room

Walk this way....

He who walks with the wise grows wise, but the companion of fools suffer harm ~ Proverbs 13:20.

Never underestimate the power of bad influence. Influence can be invisible but powerful. It can grab hold, take you under and drown you in misery. When God lights the path; the devil will do his best to put stumbling blocks along the way to trip you up. He will make his bad look more enticing than the good of God. The devil is very tricky and can cause you to be blind that is when we fall into the trap. We have to be careful of who and what we associate with. At first, it may look good and we think " Once won't hurt" Once can be the too many. Be careful with the company you keep. I always love to sit and talk with older people. They are wise and they have experience and not to mention give some good advice! I have listened to advice of younger people and I have found myself in a world of mess and sometimes I feel more doubtful than I did. We should listen to the wise because a lot of them have traveled the road we are on now!

Where will you go child?

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. ~John 10:27

Isn't it so wonderful to know when we leave this earth we have a beautiful eternal home to go to! I sometimes sit and think how it is going to feel when God looks at me and says "Well done, Jennifer!" There is not a day that goes by that I do not thank God for all the things He has done for me and I never regret a moment that I follow Him. My life with Jesus Christ has brought on a new perspective on things. I look at things a lot differently. I forgive easier than I did. I love deeper. I cherish and thank God for every moment that I am alive! Even though my heart gets broken sometimes and some days end with rain I trust God and know He will take care of me. No matter how bad the world gets...I will still follow Jesus Christ!

I am who I am....

But by the grace of God I am what I am ~ 1 Corinthians 15:10

Mirror, Mirror, on the wall......Look into a mirror and say I am unique..I am rare..I am a child of God and I am what I am because of His grace! Being a Christian isn't an easy thing to be. So many worldly pressures in our face everyday. Even, at 32 years old, I still have worldly pressures knocking at my door. The world wants us to be something other than what God wants us to be. The world expects so much out of us but if you really look at it; it's things that will wear us down and sometimes can cause destruction. We can get caught up into materialistic things and as we dig deeper to find satisfaction it eats away at us and before we know we are so distant from God that we don't put Him first anymore. If we read God's words daily and pray daily and build a strong bond with Him the world cannot touch us. God wants us to be ourselves; He wants you to be legendary you! The cross is before us and the world is behind us. The world has nothing for us but God has a beautiful eternal life waiting for us...all you have to do is say Yes, Lord, Yes I open my heart, my soul, my mind to You, Lord!!!

Be careful what you throw away...

Be careful what you throw away it might be the best thing you ever had. When something is good you want to keep it; you don't want to set it aside or throw it away cause someone else might grab it up and you won't have it ever again.....God wants us to have the best and if He gives you the cream of the crop and you decide you don't want it then it's your loss. When you sit back and think you wish you had may be too late..So cherish what you have.

Too good to be true...

Ever look at something and say "That is too good to be true." We all have! Sometimes it can be the case but when God sends it to you it's His will and it is His perfect will. Don't be afraid of a blessing God has sent you. When you pray for something and God answers your prayer- Embrace it and Praise God!!! When God places a blessing in your life cherish it and know it is a gift from God and it is good and it is true! With God all things are possible. God bless!

Let go and Let God

I posted this a while back and I thought about it and had to repost it again. We all need to realize that it is the Lord's battle and we need to give it all to Him. No matter what is going on in our lives He is in control and we need Him to help us through the thick and thin of life. God bless!

If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you and was never intended for your life, then you need to......


If you are holding on to past hurts and pains ......


If someone can't treat you right, love you back, and see your worth .....


If someone has angered you


If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge......


If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction......


If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents


If you have a bad attitude .......


If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better......


If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship.......


If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help themselves......


If you're feeling depressed and stressed


If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling yourself and God is saying "take your hands off of it," then you need to......


Let the past be the past. Forget the former things.


Get Right or Get Left. Think about it, and then


"The Battle is the Lord's!"


The last couple of weeks I have found myself praying even more. I have even been caught praying at work as my coworker thought I was asleep at my desk. Prayer is a deep, powerful intimate conversation between you and God and He always wants to hear what you have to say. If it's worth fighting for....then pray about it!
I am reading a book entitled "Praying God's Words by Beth Moore". I needed this book and God knew I needed it. For sometime it has been on my floor along with other stacks of books and today I picked it up and started to read it. Circumstances can make us break and fall apart but prayer can make us feel hope and give us some light.
Prayer is our lifeline to God. Pray without ceasing. ~1 Thessalonians 5:17. We should pray about everything. When someone has wronged us, broken our heart or if a someone needs a lifting or we are thinking about doing something- Pray. You can pray anytime..anywhere. The more you pray in places outside of church or home, the more naturally Christ will come to mind there. All settings are settings for prayer. It will seem much less like a separate, Godless world, and more of a whole in which the Spirit is afoot everywhere. Setting a schedule helps to create a habit or pattern of prayer, and turns the believer back to God throughout the day. It's not about how you do it or how many times a day you do it, it's about turning to God in the midst of what you do during the day, helping to keep the whole day in prayer. Prayer brings us closer to God and God always has time for us no matter what. Always remember...when you call on Jesus..ALL things are possible!

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours." Mark 11:24

For my price is far above rubies...

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. ~Proverbs 31:10

The world wants us to be what it wants us to be. I want to be the woman God wants me to be and nothing less. I do not need to conform to the world in order to fit in. As long as God is proud of me that is all that matters.

I have been beat down, kicked around and yet I still stand. What I cannot understand is why a man does not want a Godly woman? If I were a man I would rather be with a woman who praises the Lord instead of a woman that praises materialistic things. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. ~Proverbs 31:30. A Godly woman is a woman that needs to be cherished for a woman of God is a gift..a very rare gift.

Here comes the rain....

A raindrop is the bravest creation of God...It's not afraid to fall.

We all come to a point where we are afraid of something. I read this on some one's Facebook status and thought wow how brave is a raindrop; it's not afraid to fall. That raindrop is a creation from God and God has each raindrop in His hand like He has us in His hands. I sometimes find myself building up walls because of fear..fear of trusting, fear of getting hurt, fear of almost everything. All I have to do is turn it over to Jesus. Everything I go through He is there; it has already passed through His hands. Sometimes there is rain at the end of a perfect day but Jesus is always there no matter what. After thinking and praying I know I can be brave like a raindrop because God has me in His hands! I went through my Bible and highlighted these scriptures. Hope they help you as much as they help me! God bless!

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? ~Psalm 27:1

Fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
For I, the Lord your God,
hold your right hand;
it is I who say to you, “Fear not,
I am the one who helps you.” —Isaiah 41:10,13

Do not be afraid of sudden terror
or of the ruin of the wicked, when it comes,
for the Lord will be your confidence
and will keep your foot from being caught. —Proverbs 3:25-26

Yes I've lost my mind!

Yes I did it! I have thought about it numerous times and decided to go for it. Will be picking it up in Sumter tomorrow. Lord, give me strength! Will be learning pretty quick. Pray for me!!!

Stand in the rain

So stand in the rain, Stand your ground, Stand up when it's all crashing down, You stand through the pain, You won't drown and one day, whats lost can be found; You stand in the rain.

God is always there to help me up and push me forward. No matter how hard life is and no matter who hurts me along the way....I STAND!

Keep up the faith

We all go through hard times in life, sometimes it confuses us so much we can't see or think clear. We all know God is not the author of confusion the devil is. When the devil sees that we are happy and all is well he throws stumbling blocks in our path to try and make us fall. Each stumbling block he puts out- he makes it harder but with God's help and through prayer we can break those blocks down and defeat the devil. Here is a verse to remember.. "Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men~ Matthew 16:23. We need to pray each day and ask God to build a hedge of protection around us. The more happier we are and the more we walk with Jesus; the more the devil comes at us. Always remember when the devil comes knocking at your door always turn and say "Jesus, can you get that". Jesus is always glad to help and He is never far away! Keep your head up and never let up! Every storm you go through Jesus is there with you!

Who lead you?

One Sunday, me and Adrian were at church and during the sermon Pastor Jack asked "Who lead you to Christ?" I felt a nudge from Adrian and turned to see a smile on his face and heard a low whisper of "I love you". In March of this year, he was saved and opened his heart to Christ at our church Revival. As the service went on Pastor Jack said that we should thank the person that lead us to Christ. I am to thank the person who lead me. It happened in July of 2007. I know things didn't work out but this is one thing I thank you for from the bottom of my heart! I fought for some many years and if it were not for you I probably would still be lost. It took your situation/trial to help me and to lead me to Jesus Christ. I thank you so much! I know you come to this blog from time to time so I hope this post finds you and blesses you as you did leading me to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ several years ago. I pray that you are doing well and the Lord blesses everything you do. God bless!

Looking good!

Sorry ya'll! It's been a while since I wrote in my blog. So many doors are opening and I can't do anything but praise God! Everything is going as God wants it to! Amen! Will tell in later blogs! God bless you all!

Cowboy Church- Yeehaw!

Last week I went to Carolinas Cowboy Church for the 2nd time. It had been awhile but me, Zach, and Adrian went and had a wonderful time! Delicious food, great fellowship and of course a powerful message from God. It was revival night and we had Jeff Smith to come and preach after a week long revival at Pleasant Dale. It was awesome! In case some of you are wondering what Cowboy Church is's not your ordinary church service. If you arrive early you can ride horses til the service starts at 7 pm which is held in a barn like building. Yes it's country! And I love it! We had over 175 people attend Thursday night. You can wear your cowboy/cowgirl attire. This was Adrian's first time going and he loved it. That night they had an awesome gospel band play. They had a bluegrass sound which made it feel so "old timey". Jeff said there are more than 60 Cowboy churches over the United States and he has also had someone overseas and Canada to email him about starting one. God's message is spreading all over! Praise the Lord! This is so nice to have a way of spreading God's words with something people enjoy who are lost. God is good~ All the time! Hopefully I will have pics to share on a future post. If anyone is interested in learning more about Cowboy Church I have the site below. Enjoy and God bless you all!

A promise is a promise!

No matter how things get and where we go we can always count on God's promise for He never breaks his promise!

What can be said about God's promises to us?

1. He has promised to supply every need we have. The Bible says: "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus". That's Phillipians 4:19. Now notice, God has obligated Himself only to the extent of our needs. That would include food, clothing, shelter, companionship, love, and salvation thru Jesus Christ. It would not include the multiplicity of luxuries that we have come to think of as needs.
2. God has promised that His grace is sufficient for us. (II Corinthians 12:9). in fact, He has made provision for our salvation by His grace through faith. Read Ephesians 2:8. It is through an obedient faith that we have access into the grace of God according to Romans 5:2.
3. God has promised that His children will not be overtaken with temptation. Instead, He assures us that a way of escape will be provided. This promise is recorded in I Corinthians 10:13. Jude wrote: "Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present your faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy" (Jude v 24). Darius, King of the Medes, said to Daniel, "Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee" (Daniel 6:16). He did deliver Daniel from the den of lions.
4. God has promised us victory over death. He first resurrected Jesus by way of assuring our resurrection. Peter said: "This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we are all witnesses" (Acts 2:32). Paul wrote to the Corinthians: "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures" (I Corinthians 15:3,4). Later on he adds: "but thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (I Corinthians 15:57).
5. God has promised that all things work together for good to those who love and serve Him faithfully (Romans 8:28). It may be difficult for us to see and understand how this is accomplished at times, but God has promised it, and He will deliver.
6. God has promised that those who believe in Jesus and are baptized for the forgiveness of sins will be saved. (Read Mark 16:16 and Acts 2:38).
7. God has promised His people eternal life (John 10:27,28). In closing, let me appeal to you to live so that the promises of God will be yours.

A walk to remember....

"My walk on the moon lasted three days and it was a great adventure, but my walk with God lasts forever." Charlie Duke

I came across this website that I want to share with everyone. Enjoy and God bless!

The documentary In the Shadow of the Moon includes the story of Charlie Duke, one of the Apollo 16 astronauts launched to the moon in 1972. While the command ship orbited the moon, Duke and another astronaut landed the lunar module Orion on the moon’s surface. After 3 days of running experiments and collecting lunar rocks, the Apollo 16 crew safely returned to earth.

Later, Charlie had a spiritual transformation. He said it began when his friend invited him to a Bible study. After the meeting, Charlie prayed to Christ, “I give You my life, and if You’re real come into my life.” He then experienced an indescribable peace. It was so profound that he began to share his story with others. Charlie told them, “My walk on the moon lasted 3 days and it was a great adventure, but my walk with God lasts forever.”

The Bible tells us of another man who walked with God. “Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him” (Gen. 5:24). His spiritual walk with God was so close that God took him directly into eternity (see Heb. 11:5).

We can learn a lesson from Charlie and Enoch. For believers, no matter where our journey leads, our walk with God will last for eternity! — Dennis Fisher

Let me walk with You, dear Savior,
Side by side and hand in hand;
Keep me clean and pure and faithful
Till I reach the heavenly land. —Hess

Keep eternity’s goal in sight by walking daily in God’s light.

Clean up and clean out!

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away~Ecclesiastes 3:6

We tend to pick up "clutter" along our journey in life and sometimes it can weigh us down to the point we can't move. We let anger take over us..jealously engulf us and so much more. I was thinking last night that everybody needs to let go and let God take control. Live life and not let life live us. Life is too short to be weighed down by the "clutter" we pick up along the way. Let it go...if you feel something or someone is weighing you's time to clean house. Maybe it's time for some early spring cleaning. below is a favorite for me and hopefully will be of good use to everyone who reads it. God bless!

If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you and was never intended for your life, then you need to......
If you are holding on to past hurts and pains ......
If someone can't treat you right, love you back, and see your worth .....
If someone has angered you
If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge......
If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction......
If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents
If you have a bad attitude .......
If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better......
If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship.......
If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help themselves......
If you're feeling depressed and stressed
If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling yourself and God is saying "take your hands off of it," then you need to......
Get Right or Get Left. Think about it, and then
The battle is the Lord's not yours! Pray and let it go....

Test Drive: Jesus take the wheel

Why me Lord!? Does that sound familiar? When things happen we always want to know why it happens to us. Is it a test from God? God's tests are different than the temptations and trials of the devil. God's test is whether we act on His Word, trusting Him. Learning and growth involves testing. Sometimes a test can be pretty frustrating; its then we turn to God to ask Him for help. We should grow stronger in faith as we pass each test. The test does not make us strong, but God's Word makes us strong as we use it to overcome the test.

Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. ~James 1:12

"These trials are only to test your faith, to show that it is strong and pure. It
is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold, and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold. So if your faith remains strong after being tried by fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world." ~1 Peter 1:7

SHINE! Make them wonder what you got!

All over the world people are being persecuted for being Christians and its sad that it even happens in our own back yard. Christians get made fun of, talked about, abused and so forth. Unfortunately, this problem will always go on but.... hate to say this but DADDY DON'T LIKE UGLY! What you say or do to us you will have to answer to God. Remember that! We are His children and He will take care of us because our name is written in the Book of Life and we have a place in Heaven. Talk about us...make fun of us, do whatever you think we go to extreme wait til Judgment Day and you face our Father. The Lord is my Light and my Salvation..whom shall I fear? We are passionate for what we believe in and we love God. You nor the devil will ever change that. I have lost many so called friends because I became a Christian but I have gained so many REAL TRUE friends! So I maybe I am EXTREME but I do it all for the glory of God! So Christians all over...Be Proud to stand up and say I am a Christian and I love God! Don't be afraid of the person God wants you to be. Be in the light for He is in the light. People can take what they want from you but they can't take away the love of God in your heart. Be proud, Stand up.. Shine! Be the the Light in this dark world. Don't be afraid! God's got your back! God loves you and wants you to be part of the Kingdom of Heaven. I pray for all those that are on the outside looking in. Give it to God and you can have it all, a eternal life in Heaven rather than an eternity in hell. What's your choice? God bless you!

New Year....New Beginnings

The spirit of the Lord God..has sent me to bring good proclaim the year of the Lord's favor. ~Isaiah 61:1-2

2009 is gone..welcome 2010! I look back at 2009 and I must say it had it's ups and downs but it ended beautifully! God has been good to me even through the trying times. I have grown a lot in this year and look forward to growing even more this year. I made new friends and reconnected with some old friends, even reconnected with an old flame after 13 years!
Things are going to be different this year. Me and my son will be on our own. With my grandfather needing more care my parents are moving in with him and we are staying at their house. So much to look forward to! I know God will be there every step of the way. So far the rekindled love is going great. It's amazing after 13 years the love is still strong. So memories and so many plans.
I have been filling out papers to go back to school to get my RN and I am officially registered! This has been in the works for a while now but finally I have made a move!
I look forward to growing more in the light of God this year. Lately, I have missed Sunday morning services because I am at the hospital. I know God understands but I feel like I am being slack. I haven't been doing my Bible study like I was and I feel its catching up to me. My boyfriend has been joining me and Zach on Sundays nights. I know he will be a great part in my life and especially my walk with God.
I use to make New Year Resolutions but we all know they don't work. We keep some while the others fall through the crack. I think it's so much better when you put it all in God's hands and let Him take care of it. So whatever you have; give it to Him. God will take care of everything! I hope everyone has a wonderful new year and may God pour His blessings out to you all!
