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.

Growing Up

Hello all, sorry its been so long.
The first semester of college is complete and I am once again home united with my lovely friends and family to celebrate one of my favorite holidays in the year (Christmas!) =)
One thing i've learned wile being away at school is how important family really is. Wile living at home I took advantage of having a family, and thought mine was so horrible. Going to college has helped me come to the realization that I should be grateful to have a family. There are some people who don't even have a family to go home to on the holidays and would do anything in the world to take my place.. I was so selfish and didn't understand how important these people were to me. Since I realized this I've been trying to connect bridges, hoping to make our relationship stronger. It's time to fix things before it's to late...
Sometimes in life it takes stepping out of our comfort zones to realize what needs to change in our lives. In my case I needed to go away to college to realize how bad my relationship was with my family to be able to fix it.

I am so grateful for what God has done in my life this past semester even though my relationship with him hasn't been all that great. He has used many people to reveal his love and mercy on me through all the good and bad times wile living in a new place the last 4 months. God isn't done using and shaping me to become the person he wants me to be and I just know that this next semester I'll grow and mature more then I have thus far. I have great friends at my school now and with there help we will grow in the Lord along with our friendship as we take on each and every day of the new year.

Prayer Request..
My relationship with the Lord has been pretty bad the last few months, since i went away to school... I really want to go grow in Him more and find my calling.. I kind of feel like he is trying to lead me some ware but I'm not to clear as to ware He is leading me. This next semester I'll have 11 classes and I know it'll be even harder to find time for God in my everyday life.... Please pray that I'll be able to manage my time properly, and that I'll keep my eyes open to ware God is calling me to go. Thank you!

God Bless!
