I Believe…

Just as Jesus Christ has died for me and my sins, I would do the same, well I would do similar: die in His name…

I was just thinking today, as I prayed to God, “Wow, you know I could never repay my debts to God. I sin every day and it hurts me to think that Jesus went through everything He did because I’m a sinner; I’m a mess up. What do I do to deserve His forgiveness and redemption?” Then another question hit me: “What if someone came after me and said ‘Renounce the name of God.'” And it was life or death? Well, my friends, I’d die in the name of Jesus Christ.  I have faith in my Lord that He will provide for me and take care of me, though. I have faith that I may never have to face that situation.

I fear God, but not man. Now, it’d be a fib to say that I wouldn’t shake in my boots if someone was coming at me, I’d surely be scared. But, I’d be even more scared if come Judgement Day, Jesus denied me in front of His Father, denied me the Kingdom of Heaven, just because I feared man and denied Him. I want nothing more than to be in Heaven.  I know there’s so much more to life than just my earthly and worldly body life. I love Him. I follow Him. I’m a sinner and I’ll be a sinner until the Last Days, but I know He will forgive me.

I pray for myself for guidance and strength and I pray for everyone else that they may open their eyes and hearts. Walk by faith, not by what you see. Trust in Him, that He will provide and take care of you. He loves you unconditionally.  You may go through trials and tribulations, but that’s exactly what they are: trials. God wants to make you and your faith in Him stronger. No one knows why He lets bad things happen to innocent people, but that’s my explanation. I will forever just have faith in Him that He knows what He’s doing and trust in the Lord.

*Thank you, God, for all that I have and all that I will have. I trust you will provide and get me through any obstacle that may come my way. Help make me a better person each and every day and make good decisions. If I may fall from You, help me get up. Give me strength and give me guidance to make tough decisions. Let others see Your light who may not know You. Thank you. In Your name, Amen.*

Folks, give your heart to God today. Or if you already know Him, take some time out of your day to thank Him for everything He’s done for you. Just thank Him for letting you wake up today, for tomorrow is never a guarantee.

I love you all,

I Really Need To Start Blogging More…

Hey, all! So, a lot has happened since my last post on June 9th. It’s a little more than a month later and life has improved heaps. That internship I got for myself just to keep myself busy for the summer, turned into a job! Whatttttt?!?! That’s crazy! And I love it so much! I am now a Therapeutic Aide at Cedarbrook Nursing Home! Bye, bye red shirts and khaki pants; no more slaving away at the wonderful world of retail hell at Target! I also got my boyfriend an internship where I now work, so we’ll be working together now.

He also visited me three times in July and now there are only 4 weeks left of the summer before we move into our apartment. Now, don’t get too excited, we didn’t get a legit apartment yet, this is just a school housing apartment. I am still in need of lots of prayers that we can find one after this school year and get approved. God, I know you’re always looking out for me, so please, I pray that you’ll help me, help us, find one. And, keep me going strong these last 4 weeks! Thank You, for all You do. ❤

Prayers are always greatly appreciated!

Keep smiling. Until next time,

Well, hello there!

Hey, all. It’s been way too long since I’ve last blogged. My apologies. Not that anyone really cares or reads this. Anyway, my senior year of college is now over and I am on another joyous summer break 😛 I loathe summertime. There used to be a time where I longed for the summer– to share my time off with my family,  relax, be away from people at school. Well, that has all changed. Since last year, meeting my boyfriend, I hate summer. He is my family now. My family is torn apart this summer anyway. My little sister moved out and my parents hate each other. I got myself a kitten to keep myself busy so I don’t end up with a terrible depression spell, like last summer 😦 I also am working all I can at my job at Target as well as got myself an internship so that I will hardly have a moment of free time. I’m a bit depressed already, but not nearly as bad as last year. Is that because my boyfriend and I are in a more secured part of our relationship, being together for over a year now? Or should it be harder to be apart? I have no idea. All I know is that this is our last summer of being apart because we will be getting an apartment together next summer. Fingers crossed. I do not know what the qualifications per each building are, but I could use all the prayers I could get that we get into at least one that we apply for!

God has been so gracious to me the last couple of months in helping me get the big things in my life that I’ve been praying for. He’s helped me gain motivation and determination in myself as well as strength to achieve my weight loss goals, which I have been praying for for some time now. I got a scholarship that I prayed so much for. I got more hours at Target so I can save up money for this apartment. I got better grades in school this year. I gained more confidence in myself. I got an internship after searching for one for some time and almost giving up hope. I prayed my whole life to find that one special person and I have now. Most recently I’ve been praying to get approved for a credit card so that one step towards getting an apartment would be completed and it happened. Now all I need is for the apartment to be approved when we apply next year. Please, please, please whoever reads this, pray for me. I cannot do another summer without my boyfriend. It is absolutely heartbreaking. He is my rock and the best person in my life. He is the only person who makes me feel wonderful all the time. We really want to start our lives together and start our own mini-family. God, please let this all work out. I have endless faith in You ❤

And, thank you all who read this who are willing to pray for us. It means so much to me.

There are 68 days left until school starts again… I also pray they go by quickly! I need my babycakes! Teehee.
