It has definitely been a while since I wrote a blog. I have recently (yesterday) begun a Tumblr! It has been interesting. I cannot resist the urge to forward a pic and text to it but I have been doing this with my Twitter for a WHILE now. a long while.. God has been working in my life.. I have been extremely depressed the past few weeks (with good reason). I just need some serious prayers guys. I have been praying like crazy the past few weeks as well..... I am watching Hawaii Five-O right now and thinking about a video I just watched...


This I have always known, but until I saw this video (with clips from other horrible videos) I didnt really KNOW.. Please pray for our brothers and sisters in India.

God bless!

I am stayin strong in my walk with CHrist guys, but i REALLY need your prayers. There is some stuff goin on in my life right now that is literally driving me crazy. i'm depressed and tired (the latter from work), but i did get my schedule changed to part time while i'm gettin my CNA license and my CPR/AED certification. after i do this i'm goin on to paramedic school. :) then it will all be uphill from there. i am constantly praying for my fiance and for his life and school and a bit for me as well. i just need to make sure that this is what God wants me to do in my life. I know i'm supposed to be medical, i just don't know what.. either a trama (ER) nurse or a paramedic. i think the action is what i'm in for no matter what i do. Ugh! i'm so sore. believe it or not when i tell you guys this.. working out DOES make you happier. i am so depressed and have little energy, but yesterday i put that energy to good use and worked out my abs and arms and i went to a 45 minute jog/walk with my guy friend and i felt a little bit happier through the rest of my day AND i got the best night sleep i have had in a while. I have to go get ready for my day (i woke up late) and meet my dad at his work in a few. I also am gonna go say hi to my fiance at his work. God bless y'all. :)

Pray for Friends and Enemies

I realize I have not written lately. My week is horrible. The last two days and the first are the worst sleep wise. I work Friday from 3 to 12 at night. Wake up Saturday at 5 to go to class at 7:30 (my school is about an hour away) and get out of class at 1:30 or 2 to have just enough time to come home, eat, and get ready for work 4 to 12 at night... then I wake up for church on Sunday at 8 or 9, and have the best time at then work 3 to 12.. Lol it's such a pain going to school full time and working full time. :) But I'll get where I wanna be and where I feel God is calling me soon!

I have been reading Psalms like crazy and finding verses about God's glory for church tomorrow night. I have been searching for almost a week and have found quite a few. I relate it this way. I received the word Glorious. This is an adjective for something given glory, which is a form and a synonym of praise and adoration. So I am searching for verses of praise and lifting up God's name in thanksgiving and adoration.

So far I have seven verses for this and three possible verses to use. :)

Today I am reading Psalm 41 which is the last psalm of Book One. I have three different versions I am looking at right now. These are of course the three I have noticed to be the most viewed versions. Also, the most differing. I personally read the New Living Translation, and am also using (today) the New International Version and the King James Version.

Here it is for those of you who do not have a Bible:

(New Living Translation)

1 Oh, the joys of those who are kind to the poor!
      The Lord rescues them when they are in trouble.
2 The Lord protects them
      and keeps them alive.
   He gives them prosperity in the land
      and rescues them from their enemies.
3 The Lord nurses them when they are sick
      and restores them to health.
4 “O Lord,” I prayed, “have mercy on me.
      Heal me, for I have sinned against you.”
5 But my enemies say nothing but evil about me.
      “How soon will he die and be forgotten?” they ask.
6 They visit me as if they were my friends,
      but all the while they gather gossip,
      and when they leave, they spread it everywhere.
7 All who hate me whisper about me,
      imagining the worst.
8 “He has some fatal disease,” they say.
      “He will never get out of that bed!”
9 Even my best friend, the one I trusted completely,
      the one who shared my food, has turned against me.
10 Lord, have mercy on me.
      Make me well again, so I can pay them back!
11 I know you are pleased with me,
      for you have not let my enemies triumph over me.
12 You have preserved my life because I am innocent;
      you have brought me into your presence forever.
13  Praise the Lord, the God of Israel,
      who lives from everlasting to everlasting.
   Amen and amen!

This psalm is without a doubt beautiful. This is something not many take refuge in. God is there, a friend when you are in need, a healer, someone you can confide in even when your friends all turn their backs on you. V. 1-4 tells us exactly what I am saying. God blesses you beyond measure and blesses you   if you are kind to the poor (both poor in money and poor in spirit, even poor in health). He blesses us in spiritual prosperity, guaranteed. (Sorry, I am a sales representative, using words like "guarantee" come natural now.) He has our backs and takes good care of us.

V. 4-6 kind of make me want to be angry, but this is the way of the world now, the way of Satan. People offer help but it is with empty sympathy. They say to your face, "it will all get better soon" and then go to their other friends and tell them "they have no chance". What's worse, they do it so blatantly that the person they are talking about hears just as soon what is being said about them. Read v. 7-9. This simply reiterates what I am saying. This passage makes me remember more than ever to pray for me friends and enemies. Even my frienemies (combo).

Not only to pray for them and their actions, but also pray that God might show them through me what is right so I can definitely triumph over the evil that may seep into their lives. If they see me for what I am through Christ, what else is there? That is all I want anyone to see, Christ in me, living in me, through me, and me living for Him.

"Praise the Lord, the God of Israel, who lives from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and amen!"

We should always keep God's praise and glory in our mind and on our lips. I am giving a goal to whoever is reading this. Today, just today, tell someone of your relationship with Christ. Whether it be a short sentence of maybe five words, do it. Even an "I'm so excited about church tomorrow (or whatever day you have church)", even simply reading your Bible in public (as I do a LOT). Someone may see you and ask what you are reading. This is the perfect time to share your faith. Pray before your day begins, before breakfast, before lunch, before dinner, before sleeping. Pray before you take that long drive for safety, for beautiful weather, for a safe trip back as well. It is so exhilarating to talk to God almost 24/7. Do it.

God bless you! Prayer request? Email me at livin4christ0129@yahoo.com!

Today I read Psalms 30 through 32 (three psalms). This is not what I want to focus on right now though. A few blogs in the past couple weeks I have mentioned how God is doing something crazy amazing in my life and others around me. I have felt Him telling me "something is coming" and "be ready" and as you have all noticed, I have begun reading my Bible way more and I feel like God is trying to get me to remember as much as I can. I feel like sooner than later the time is coming when I (we) won't be able to bring our Bibles outs as much anymore. It is coming sooner than we think. Something big is about to happen in this world.

I was kinda directed at  Revelation and the 7 seals today. None have happened just yet. Well, maybe the first, but I am pretty sure this one is only ABOUT to happen and has not happened just yet. Along with Neat coming and gonna hit Earth in 2010 according to NASA. (I am double checking this for facts for/against and will inform you soon about the truth behind it). This would be (HELLO!!) the second trumpet if it does indeed ring true.

On a different note, I am searching and praying that God lead me to verse of His glory. This is as you may have read in my previous blog, an assignment from church last night. I am about to go to bed and get some beautiful sleep :P I had a long day at work and studying both for my nursing class and for my spirit.

Good night and God bless!!

Glory and Praise

Great Escape was beautiful. I don't know what it is that God does when we worship with fellow believers in Christ, but He does SOMETHING that makes you unleash your form of worship. There is something there when your in a group that is not there when you worship on your own. Praise God for His majesty and beauty and grace. I read Psalms 26 and 27 today. I forgot to write of 25, but today, I am going to write about what I have been given at church (both mine and FB GE- First Baptist Great Escape for college students).

My church (Jubilee Christian Center) has a group that is for all youth ages 13 to 19. I am 19 until January, and one that hits, I will help out. Today we were told to write down everything God is to us. (For example, some things I wrote were: Friend, Protector, Forgiver, Peace, Hope, etc.) I wrote random ones from everyone on a big poster board that was taped up at the end. We read Psalm 67 and 96. Also, from this list (first come, first serve) we had to choose one that was placed up there. I chose Glorious. Now between today and next Wednesday, I need to be on the lookout for verses referring to Glorious God and His glory. Makes me happy!!

At GE we were talking about Joshua 24:15 and Who we choose to serve. I choose to serve the one true God. (big G) I choose Him over the little idols called gods (little g). The little gs don't necessarily even have to be false gods. This could be money, education, pay roll, boyfriend, girlfriend, ANYTHING! But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.

Glory to God in the highest, forever. Amen.

Psalms and Praise

Today I read from Psalms 24&25. I am only gonna focus on 24 right now. I will focus on 25 later when I get home from class. I loved 24 because it was a psalm of praise to our God. I mean, the first line says enough for me.

"The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it
The world and all it's people belong to Him" (v.1)

That alone is enough for me to worship the King of all kings. And you know, God is so much more than everything just belonging to Him. He takes CARE of everything as well! He gives us everything we need. When we are in trouble, He lifts us out. When we are scared, he comforts us. When we talk, He listens. And let me tell you, He listens better than any of your friends or family EVER will!

He doesn't just own everything we know...He made it too. (v.2)

David worships God and says that only those who seek Him have the right to worship Him. I don't know about you, but I seek Him daily. I have not gone a day without prayer and lately my prayers are continuous. (I can't believe this--but I have to tell you guys this..my little dog is snoring like my dad does :D) I digress.. David even goes on to say that only those who seek God are even able to worship in His presence. (v.3-6)

Make way for the Lord when you worship, open up your hearts in prayer, in song, in psalm. Open up your heart to Jesus who died for you. Open it up to God who sent his ONLY Son to die in your place for YOUR sin. Did you know Jesus was blameless? Sinless? Noone who crucified Him seemed to care.. Did you know that His death (when the rocks split) even brought some who crucified Him to follow Him? This is why it says:

"My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. So I live in this earthly body trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave His life for me." (Galatians 2:20)

Praise the Lord for what He has done in your life. He brought you into the world through your mother. This is why you should love God more than even your family and friends. He has been there for you since before the beginning of your life. He knew you even in your mother's womb before even your mother knew you were there! Go read Psalm 139. I will be there by December 22 this year. (I am a woman with a plan!) Also read (v.7-10 of Psalm 24).

Have a great day!! God bless you.
