Wow, the Lord is continuing to put me in my place. I think I constantly need to be reminded that I am just a mere person, and God is GOD! We sang Holy Fire on Thursday and Sunday, I love that song. But again, I didn't really pay attention the lyrics until yesterday during Sunday school. That song had me on my knees.

I was trying to figure out why God was putting ME through situations that weren't making MY life easier. But God completely came through and I have never been so content and satisfied in Him then I am right now. How does He work like that?

"Holy Fire, burn away, my desire for anything that is not of You, but is of me, I want more of You and less of me."

God keeps continuing to show me that it needs to be all about Him and not me and not other people. :)

God is faithful. About the best thing to remember. Man, going through tough times with someone is probably one of the hardest things for me to do. So not only did we talk about loving our enemies in my inklings class, but ALSO talked about loving each other as Christians in youth group on Thursday. That night God showed me versus about living in harmony, and loving others, and not getting back or anything. :) God is so faithful. I love the way He works. although sometimes it's hard. :]

Faith. . .

Decided from my last post, that one I'm lacking right now is faith. It's so hard sometimes to just have faith in the Lord and trust Him when you just wanna get things done right away. But why should it be so hard? He ALWAYS comes through, maybe not the way I wanted Him to, but His work is amazing and perfect. I was reading my Bible tonight and came across a very good verse.

Hebrews 11:6
"And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for whoever would draw near to God, must believe that He exsists, and that He rewards those who SEEK Him."

I don't know, I guess I just like it because He will reward us when we seek Him. So I have to be looking for Him and following Him in order to find out what is going on. Ya know? I don't know, I just think it's awesome. =]

Don't you love that the Bible has every answer we can possibly need?

Writing my thoughs. . .

So lately I've been thinking a couple of things. I didn't really realize until last night at youth group how amazing God's grace really is. I mean, I sit here, wishing that this person would change, or wishing that I could to this place, etc. Instead of spending time with my amazing Savior who DESIRES to spend time with me and have a relationship with me. And yet, He is still waiting with open arms for me, He forgives me over and over again. I pray to stop doing something, and the next day I'll do it again. Because He loves us so much and is desiring a relationship with us, He's willing to forgive us over and over again even though we fail Him. Man that's intense.

And another thing, totally convicted. Who am I to tell God what to do? Lately I've just been not understanding at all what God is doing. I'm trying too hard to change the hearts of others, and while I can help, the Lord's timing is perfect and He knows EXACTLY what He's doing. I guess it's just hard sometimes. Man, I've gotta stop trying to do things myself, and fix them myself because I'm so impatient with the Lord. It's all about prayer huh? Keep asking God, and He will bless us. Hmm, I love Jesus.

Sorry if that didn't make ANY sense whatsoever. =]

My heroes:]

I love these boys. My brothers and Rusty are pretty much the best there could possibly be. They are so stinking hilarious. Although they can be so annoying, quite disgusting, and sometimes really smelly, I couldn't be happier:] I was blessed with such an awesome family, thank you Jesus! =]

Sunday, August 3, 2008


Pretty much she is my laughing buddy:] Oh man, everytime we're together we just laugh and laugh and laugh. (: It's ridiculous. I love this girl so much, she's pretty much amazingly beautiful, and just so awesome. :) I have such a good time with her, watching scary movies, eating food, and cracking up at anything and everything. =] She's amazing. Love you Heather!

My "little sister"

I love Ainsley Marie, so stinking much. =] Hah, yeah she can be quite interesting sometimes, but I love that little face of hers. She's the bestest ever, and I'm so glad that I get to see her all the time. :) She has the best family in the entire world! No doubt about it. (:


HAHAHHAAH! Pretty much the funniest thing all week. Oh my gosh that hurt so bad, and that was only the first time I fell. But yeah, I just love spinning as fast as i possibly can then totally trying to run away, but instead of running away I fell really hard. =] I wish it was being videoed but that's alright. (:

Summer retreat '08

The retreat was pretty much awesome. Man, did I learn so much more about God and how important it is to live this life for Him. We had some good times, battle wounds, sunburns, a lot of laughter, and a LOT of eating(: The best part was probably when my lip swelled, I wish I took a pic with my digital. sorry. :( The view was gorgeous, I loved waking up to the sound of the ocean every morning. God's creation is amazing isn't it? =] But yeah it was a good time! I love being with my friends.

Jonas Brothers = love

So, me and Heather have decided that we love the Jonas Brothers. We're going to go to their house someday, yeah, we're creepers;) But this picture, is like perfect in itself because it's the Jonas Brothers PLUS Zac Efron!!! HELLO! Man, I love them so much. =] WHOO WEEE!!!!

Writing my thoughts:]

Well, tonight we had youth group and my dad was sharing the story to everyone about all of our moves. And it became really surreal to me hearing my dad talk about it. He said "walking out of our front door from our Texas house, all 7 of us had tears in our eyes" "we moped and walked around sad for at least 2 weeks" And that is TOTALLY true, but now, look where we are, look where I am. God is soooooo big, he has changed me and my entire families lives, with faith and everything. I guess it always sucks to suffer, but it's so important to have joy during those suffering times. God is so big, and He knows what He's doing. Why am I questioning God's plan? It is PERFECT! Although moving away is the hardest thing that I can ever deal with, God is so comforting to me. Man, I think it's an important thing for us all to remember God's goodness!!!

Yep, I'm still learning. Mr. Pardues lesson this morning really got to me. When he said "For all we know the rapture could happen within the next 20 minutes, is the way your acting right now okay with you to be judged by God?" Why do we even waste our time with this world, and it's so called "pleasures" when we could be doing something so much better. He also said "If your going to give something up, fill it with something else that pleases God." For me, it's time to change. It's amazing to me how many times I can screw up and yet the Lord loves me just as much as He did before. We serve and are loved by such an awesome God. . . so what are we doing? I'm so thankful that I have a relationship with the GOD OF THE UNIVERSE and I love spending time with Him everyday. I encourage you all to start getting rid of those stupid temptations that Satan has hold on us, and start spending time with God, growing  close to Him. Let's be prepared for His coming! Now I can't wait to spend the rest of my life in peace, sitting with my Lord and Savior and worshiping Him everyday. =] I love Jesus. 

Best Friends. . .

I love her. There isn't much more to it than that. The weird picture where her hair is in my face is because I thought we were taking a regular picture but I guess she was fixing her hair and took the pic and smacked me in the face all at the same time. It was sooo funny. (: But yeah, it's just amazing, and I could not be more thankful for her. =] She's beautiful, inside and out. I love you Kel.

texas:) yahbabe

You gotta love Texas. The accents, and everything. I was so happy to go back home, hah, even though it's not home but whatever. It was so great to get away, and I love being with Breezers. We played 126 games of double speed and she beat me 76 times? hah. There was a storm the first night and it was AMAZING! Although their sixflags compared to ours is nothing, it was still a great time. :) I love it there. =] And all of my friends. (:

summer ohhh8

Well the summer has started off amazing!!! God has done so much just in the first few weeks, answering prayers, mending friendships, it's been great. I'm so stoked for the rest of the summer, and to watch my friends grow. =]

Prayer IS powerful

WOW! I guess the when people say "The power of prayer" they aren't kidding. It's crazy how God is working in so many of my friends lives. I'm so stoked for this summer to see my friends grow. It's amazing how we can pray and pray and pray and we don't see any change, but God is always working, whether I can see it or not. I'm so thankful that the God I serve is faithful, and His timing is perfect. The Lord continues to put me in awe everyday. :)
