Stuck in The Desert

These past several weeks it seems as if I have been wandering in a desert wasteland. Lately I have not been able to spend quality time with God. You can call it a lack of discipline. It is one of those battles where God wants me to step out in faith and trust even if I am not hearing him as often, and at the same time the enemy is there as well trying to tug me in the other direction making me think that my own way is the way and causing me to be more dry. So since God is my water I am running short of it in this journey in the desert. I need to make a decision of who I am going to completely surrender to. I know I need to surrender to God but it seems difficult right now. Lord, I want to serve you and you alone, give me strength to fight the battles of my flesh and of the enemy, but most of all Lord give me discipline.

The Best Use of Life Is Love

Love should be your top priority primary objective, and greatest ambition. Love is not a good part of your life; it's the most important part. The Bible says, "Let love be your greatest aim." It's not enough to say, "One of the things I want in Life is to be loving," as if it's in your top ten list. Relationships must have priority in your life above everything else.Why? Life without love is really worthless

Happy Fourth

Happy fourth of July. Freedom and independence. These are things that we tend to take advantage of frequently. It was neat to be able to teach the youth about America's freedom and the freedom we receive from Christ today. Often we take advantage of Christ's freedom by continuing to sin. I am so grateful Christ gives the gift of life and I want to learn how to receive Jesus's gift daily. Looking forward to the events later this evening. Have a good one.

Good News

This just in, (I am done with summer school)! You would
not believe how hard trying to catch up when you are
behind is in a 4 week course. All I know is that so thank-
fully God's hand was right behind me pushing me through.
I learned that nothing is impossible without him, especially
when i think things are more than they are. The reason I
think this experience came about was due to my
prayer of wanting to be free from unwanted anxiety. And great-
fully God is beginning to break me from my lack
of trust in Him in the different areas of my life.
"If you guys were praying for me thanks"
Today is going to be a great day of relaxation and peace,
yay and no "school"!
Love you guys
