Be contented. Be cheerful. Do not have a murmuring spirit. But give thanks for all the blessings in your life so that God can bless you more. Have a humble spirit, so that God can exalt you. Do not seek earthly things that will perish but seek the true treasures that will last and give fulfillment
and the Lord will answer you in your times of need. Seek the Lord on your knees and pray. Worship Him in truth and in spirit.

Always Light
By: Taylor M.

Beauty is the sun
Shedding light,
Upon the shadows of the night.
Bringing joy it showed
Finding it can fail,
But God has blessed us,
By giving us the light of the sun,
And by night
The sun shall set.
The shadows moving in,
With moon over head,
A hint of light
In the shadows of the night.
With Gods secret message,
That only some can read,
In the faint moon glow
Its God showing,
He will never leave.

God Is just so amazing and I can't help but want to spread his glory to the whole world. He has done so much for me, and a lot of the time I forget to thank him for all of the good stuff that he does do. A lot of the time I just ask for this and ask that, I mean that's not bad but I (we) need to also thank him as well. God is absolutely AMAZING!!!

Joy that cant be contained

OK so for the past couple of weeks I've been really struggling with my relationship with JC and I've been pretty depressed. Yesterday was such an amazing day though and one of my friends called out to me for help. I could totally see God using me to help this friend of mine, and I felt so blessed and was in AW. God is just so amazing and on my way home from church last night I had a conversation with another friend who brought me home. I could also see God speaking through him to me, telling me what I needed to fix in my life. So after that I felt even more Aw struck. So I went to my room and just talked to God for an hour or so. It was so amazing I just sat there and started talking aloud all the stuff i was struggling with and talked to him about my friends who I love so dearly. I was so filled with his Glory and felt so restored that I couldn't contain my happiness! I asked God to show me that he was lessening to what I was saying and so I grabbed my bible and just opened it up. This was the first thing I read:

Psalm 3:3-4

3. But u r a shield around me, o Lord; u bestow glory on me and lift up my head. 4.To the Lord I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill.

Now this was just so amazing bc this is exactly what God has been trying telling me all along. God is just so amazing and I have decided that i will no longer live in my old ways but start a new path living full out for God. Bc without him I wouldn't be able to defeat Satan's Evil temptations in my every day life. I will no longer sit on the fence but in fact i will be as far away from the fence that I can be.

OK well that's what I've officially decided since yesterday and i am just so happy. oh and here is a poem that I wrote today:

Full and Filled

By: Taylor McDonald

Full and filled is my heart of love

Because God has loved me

And is so amazing.

He has touched my life

Through the pain of another

And helped me realize,

Ware I've laid.

So with my new heart

I take the stand

And I decide today

That God is my way.

I shall never sit upon the fence again

I will never do what I've once done before.

For that is now my past

And God has my future in his hands.

God your in control now

Not Satan or anyone else

But YOU,

And that's how its always going to stay,

Full and filled is my heart of love

Because God has taken me

And nourished me to health.
