“Send us around the world with the news of your saving power and your eternal plan for all mankind” (Psalm 67:2, TLB).
It is with great excitement that I can say that I will be going to Croatia, by the grace of God, in a few hours! I honestly cannot believe that God has chosen me, of all people, to be part of what He is doing in this world! I am amazed and I am overwhelmed. I thank God for the desire He has given me to go into all the world! The joy that’s in my heart cannot be expressed with words but I thank God for it!
But this is my testimony:
This morning, I woke up earlier than I had expected and it dawned on me that it’s the 30th! Continue reading “Testimony Thursday: The Peace of God”
This is a poem I wrote in the Spring of 2013, which was the end of my junior year. I wrote this in one of my creative writing classes. At this point I had read about Jesus but hadn’t truly accepted him. I was living and striving in sin… I thought for sure that God would never want me talkless of loving me. Well, praise God for His grace and mercy upon my life!
The title of the poem is “Savior”
Disclaimer: I dabble with poetry; I’m no Shakespeare.
My savior once walked amongst us,
teaching us how to live:
patience, obedience, and love;
to spread truth,
to fight for justice,
to give our all
now and forevermore.
These are the rules he gave.
These are the lessons he taught.
My savior used to walk with me,
now I just walk alone.
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations… And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:18-20, NIV).
Going Across the World, with His Help
By the grace of God, I will be going to Croatia on July 30th, 2015. I am very excited because I get to be part of what God is doing in the world. Honestly, I had never heard of the country until I heard of the opportunity to go there on a service learning trip last year when I was on a discipleship training program in Burlington, VT, with the Navigators, a Christian organization. I was at first discouraged because fundraising was involved; I don’t particularly like fundraising. I dismissed the idea of even going, but God had a different plan.
Earlier this year, in March, I was reminded of the opportunity and I felt a pull in my heart to apply. Application cost $30 and I used pretty much all I had in my account to pay for it. I knew that whether or not I was accepted, the money was gone. I handed everything over to God in faith. Lo and behold, Continue reading “Testimony Thursday”
I can’t remember the actual date but what really started this whole blogging business is “Testimony Thursday”. I was just on instagram one day when the thought came to me, “Instead of #tbt, why not have testimonies?!” I thought it was an original idea… that was until I saw a page using the same phrase! I was a bit discouraged but I was happy because I knew that the idea came to me; I didn’t steal it from anyone haha.
Long story short, “God for everyday” came to my mind on Monday, actually, and I started thinking of creating a blog and/or website where I’ll be able to simply share the Gospel with the world!!!
I love Jesus! I love God! The gift of the Holy Spirit is amazing! The Bible is my best friend. I love the fact that Continue reading “He is the Reason for this Season”
