Update on my mission trip!

July 10, 2008 at 8:51 pm (Blessed, Friends, Life, Trusting)

Only six days till I leave. I am so excited. It has come so fast. I will be gone eight days doing the will of God. I can’t wait to see what God is going to do there. I pray our team becomes even closer than we already are and falls even more in love with Jesus.

One of the things I was really worried about was getting all my money. I would pray that I would get money every week until I leave and that I would NOT have to use my money that I was saving to go to beauty school. Last week, I was going over to a friend’s house. When I was walking in I was praying and asking God to let someone gave me $l00 dollars. A friend was going to go on the trip but couldn’t and gave me a little of they money she had got. I was so blessed. I couldn’t believe it. God answer my prayer so fast. God is so faithful.

I think it can be so hard for me to be patient and just wait. Not that I was thinking that God wouldn’t provide but I was getting worried. God just wanted me to trust him.

Every week since I sent out my support letter, I have got one or two checks a week. Two weeks ago I still needed $450. That’s still a lot to me. I thought and had a big feeling I wasn’t going to get it. We had a BBQ at the church to raise money and didn’t think I would get very much with that either.

Yesterday, they told each of us the amount of money that we still needed. All I need is $85 dollars! Wow thats not much at all.

God does speak to me!

June 7, 2008 at 10:45 pm (Blessed, Friends, God, Life, Trusting)

I was worshiping at youth group a couple nights ago. God really spoke to me that night about something that happened at the girl’s retreat. He was reminding me of what he told me up there.

At the girl’s retreat we had a time when we had to ask God certain questions that were in the book, then we had to share what God told us after ten or fifteen minutes. One of the the questions was:

” What does God think is unique about you?”

God clearly showed me something right then. I my eyes filled with tears because I would NEVER have thought that was unique about me. I actually thought the total opposite. I didn’t want to share it with the whole group. So everyone went around telling what God had said to them. The group got really deep. I was the last person to talk. In the time I was waiting, I was trying to say God will you please change it? I l don’t want to share it with the whole group, But God said “No”. God loves this about me. It finally got around to me. It was really hard to say it, but here it goes.

I have a learning disability. I hate talking about it. I feel some people won’t like me because of it. I never feel very smart when it comes to school stuff, I actually feel really dumb. I feel I am not as “cool” as everyone else. It makes me sad. Sometimes I used to feel that I wouldn’t find the right guy because of this. But God said, “This is how I made you. I love this about you. This makes you different from the world. The guy I have in mind for you will understand.” All I could think is Wow!

To bring it back to the worship night, God really spoke to me and reminded me about things he thinks are awesome that I didn’t think were awesome. God is incredible. God made me the way that I am and I guess that will never change. It is important to remember to treasure what God tells you to. God made me who I am and I know who I am. I guess the learning disability is a gift and not a curse.

School…

May 5, 2008 at 4:09 am (Friends, Life, Morning)

School is almost over. Only 12 days left! Oh yeah, only 12 days left of being in high school for this year but next year will be a piece of cake. I only will have TWO classes. I am not worrying about next year at all. Next year will be the easiest year EVER.  

 I am so done with high school.  I am a A+ student. I am always working on school. I have spring fever so bad that it is really hard to focus and care at all right now. I am ready to be an adult. I don’t want to go to college. I could, but I don’t want to. God did not create my brain for school. Not at all.  

I am ready to be on with my life. I am ready to get married and take care of a husband, have kids, be a homemaker. And cook lots of yummy things. That is my deep passion. People think that I am crazy, but I don’t really care. Its the passion that God has given me and I don’t think that it will change. That is who I am.

Sorry!

May 2, 2008 at 2:02 am (Friends, Life) ()

First of all I want Josh Brage and Mark Thomas to know that I went and changed what they lectured me about. I guess I messed up 😦 I feel super bad! I hope you will forgive me Josh. I will never do it again.   

I want everyone else who reads my blog to know that this last weekend I hung out with Josh and I should have specifically mentioned Josh by name instead of saying that I hung out with a friend.  

I learned so much from Mark Thomas in just the few minutes that I spent with him today. His intense stare made me feel awkward at first but then I realized that I should not be intimidated by him.

Well you guys, I hope that I fullfilled your wishes in this post.

Girls Retreat

April 13, 2008 at 5:39 am (Friends)

Worship was amazing! Sean Brage lead worship for us girls. Worship is my favorite thing to do. Sean did one of my favorites too. It was “ Oh, how he loves us.” I really got to just seek God and get on my knees. There was lots of crying. Girls were praying for other girls. It was awesome. Thank you so much Sean for leading us into the presence of God.

Friday night after worship they picked five girls who they wanted to give encouragement to and let them know that they are truly loved. After a girl was picked, she would go up and set on a bench and anyone could come and bless them or tell them how much they mean to them. I was one of those girls. I had five people come and talk to me. I cried so much. It meant to so much to me that they would do something like this. Then they gave me a necklace. I absolutely love it and will wear it all the time.

Rap groups were amazing. My leaders were Bri and Chrissie. I loved all the girls in my group. We really got to open up with each other. The last rap group we had everyone prayed for each other. At the end our leaders gave us presents. They gave us a CD, a box of candy and a journal. Bri asked if I liked her purse and I said “Yes,I love it!” and she just gave it to me. I didn’t ask, she just gave it to me. I am so blessed. Oh Boy was I Happy. I had really been wanting a purse like this one too, but they cost a lot of money.

The castle was BEAUTIFUL. We went to Glen Erie in Colorado Springs. A lot of the girls got to roam around in it during free time. We would try and find places people have never been. We went and found a place where we could get on the top of it. Oh ya, thats what I really wanted to do. We got to the top after climbing up lots of ladders to get to it. After looking around and having fun up there we had to get down because we had places to be.

A little later, we wanted Hosh to come and take pictures of us up there. So I ran to get Hosh because we had so little time. I got back and we went up there and got lots of pictures. I don’t know if they look good but hey. I was the first one to get down and some guy that worked there came and talked with me and asked me to get down and not go up there again. Lol so I thought that was the end of it. Oh I was wrong. While I was walking to where I had to be, he came up to me and lectured me on how they didn’t want people climbing the castle. He told me to tell everyone in my group NOT to get up there again. I said alright I will tell them and walked off. Even though they DON’T have any signs saying DON’T CLIMB THE CASTLE. Oh, I didn’t get upset because it’s their fault for not putting any signs up in the first place.

I have never been to such on AWESEOME retreat. Holly is an amazing girl. She is the best youth pastors wife ever.

Here are some pictures! 🙂 🙂 🙂

The SPA

April 4, 2008 at 5:33 am (Friends)

OH MY GOSH! OH MY GOSH!

Today was a blast. You don’t even know.

I had a great time! We got there a little early. Holly had a good time parking far away, then she started walking to the wrong place. It was pretty funny. Then they gave us bath robes to put on. We got to talk for like an hour before everything happened. I told her everything that was going on in my world. I really got to open up to her. I am super glad that God put her in my life. The lady that was doing my massage would not stop talking. I was hoping that she would stop and I could just rest and not think. That didn’t happen. Oh well it was still good. Then I got to get my pedicure. Oh, that was so nice. I got to sit in a big comfy chair that was very comfortable while my legs and feet got massaged and my toenails got painted. It was beautiful. I got to spend all the$200 dollars in the gift certificate that I won at Ladies Night. I got to get lotion, hair stuff and lip gloss. We snacked on the pretzels they had. When I got in the car I was starving and so was Holly. We really wanted Chipotle, but we didn’t think that we would get back in time, so I thought I was going to starve. Lol We got back at 9:45 so we went and ate together.

To sum it all up – It was a great day and I had a blast!

Tomorrow is going to be a long day. So I need sleep!
