Dedication to my Grandfather

My brother Michael sent me a beautiful video that was put together by him of our Grandaddy. He passed away back in September of 2015, that is when I really cut back on my writing also.

This video shows just a fragment of the service he did for the Lord. Giving Bibles to churches and all over Bulgaria. Risking his life while working for the Lord so others could know about Jesus. We need to have that dedication, that motivation to drop everything and put Him first!

Thank you again Michael for the beautiful video!

CHANGE IS GOOD!

For the last few months I have been slightly distracted from my writing.  There has been a lot going on as you all can see, especially since the Election.  It is quite interesting to see how America is reacting to how the election results came out.  Personally I feel that how America as a whole is overreacting, it is really sad to be honest.

It’s okay to voice your opinions, to express yourself, and share your emotions.  But the physical violence and hatred that is sweeping through the nation should not be tolerated.  When did violence become a means to freedom of Speech.

God allowed Trump to be President.  We are all pons to God’s will and should remember that.  So the election didn’t turn out the way some wanted it too, but think of this, God has a plan that needs to be unfolded.  He will use Trump like he used all the other leaders we have had for our country.

The world is watching us, the greatest country around, we embarrassing ourselves.  You can either be a leader or a follower.  Which are you?  Well me, I hope to be a leader.  Let’s break this cycle and grow up.  You can’t get your way everyday.  Not going to happen.  This is life, and as I said there is no way you can always get your way.

The best advice I can give everyone is to Trust the Lord, Pray daily for our leaders and country, and Know that God is in control ALWAYS so don’t fret.

 

Change


Recently I have been troubled by our country’s leaders actions.  We need God back in our country!  Without God we are nothing, He is the foundation that our founding fathers founded this country upon.

When did freedom of speech become freedom of acts-like over zealous rioting (put nicely).  Yes we have the freedom to voice our opinion but to act on aggression and hatred should not be tolerated.

We are civil adults… Not children!  Show initiative and leadership, be an example.  Our children are watching our every move and hearing our every word.  Always remember there is always a better way to handle a situation that doesn’t involve vulgarity and violence!

Pray for our country daily!!  ❤️

God You are My Rock

This year has been a challenging one, almost too complicated to understand.  To be honest as I have faced the trials that this year has brought me I have learned that without God there is no foundation.  God has been my rock and has kept me a float as I was going through all the crazy chaos.  Now that I look upon the events that have gone on I now have peace of the end result.  No matter what you are facing always remember God is there to guide and encourage you along the way.

Yep…been a while since I truly gave an update of what has been going on.  Well it seems like a lot lol!  Summer has been truly keeping me on my toes and is going full fledged out crazy.  Hopefully when school starts the chaos will die down a bit, at least from the unplanned crazy standpoint that is.  We are currently in the middle of buying a house which I have to say definitely is exciting but SUPER stressful!

I am hoping in about a day or two we will be able to finish everything up and finally move forward with the house :).  That is the goal though, depends on the underwriter and their mood.  Starting this new chapter is definitely exciting and welcome due to all the rough patches this year has brought me.

This year has really brought a lot of pain, but through it all I have grown stronger.  Through everything I have faced this year I have learned that nothing is Greater than God.  No problem I have faced, dealt with, or will deal with is bigger than God.  That is what has kept me pushing through the pain and the rough patches.  🙂

Always remember that no matter what you are going through God is always there.  He is always there to pick you up when you fall, wipe away the tears when you cry, and lift you up when you are down.  For so long I pushed God away because I got lost in everything around me that I forgot how dependent I truly was in need of HIM.  We forget as humans that we are so small and that GOD is so BIG.  Always remember no matter what you are facing God is always there waiting for you!

I just thought I should share this because in a way I feel like many can relate even if they don’t admit to it.

God is so Great!


Patience is a hard trait to follow through on, especially when you are eager!  Recently I have been struggling with the ability to be patient.  As my health declines and the grief from my beloved grandfather takes a toll on me my ability to be patient has been tested.  

I am trying to rebuild myself one piece at a time.  Sometimes that’s all you can do!  As God tries us we tend to shut down and sulk.  But God is in control no matter what circumstance you may be facing!  Thank goodness!! God is my rock and foundation and without him I would fall to pieces!!!  God is so Great!!!!! 😊

Moving Forward!

Recently I have been trying to take a step back and re-evaluate the plan God has in store for me.  Ever since I lost my grandfather I have been faced with many hurdles that has changed my perspective of many things.  Sometimes we get too comfortable and once our world is shaken or even broken by a catastrophic event in your life it can be nearly impossible to pick up all the pieces.  I lost myself in grief and ever since then my life has been tumbling into a spiral vortex until today.  Today I realized why my Grandfather sang  “Blessed Assurance” and the true meaning of this hymn.  My life is not my own, I forgot the meaning of being a servant unto the Lord.  I have been selfish and have pushed God away because I was hurt, in pain, and yes even angry.  I didn’t know how to cope and I built up a resistance while trying to fix myself.  Today I realized as I listened to that song on Pandora that I am wrong and that there is no way for me to fix myself but to lean on the Lord and His Grace.  God is with you no matter how bad the storm is in your life!   All you have to do is reach out to Him.
