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.

The Daughter of a King

Sitting at my computer pretty much every minute of every day wasting my time on mindless things such as fb or youtube looking up the newest hits of the talented teens and young adults, who are trying to be found. But today my mind takes me to a different place, a different reality in a sense. I've been doing a lot of thinking lately... (no comment!) About God and his many wonders and me as one of his precious creations and what's his purpose for me a his daughter.. The daughter of the king! The daughter of the one who created everything, who told light it could shine. But what does God ask us as his creation to be, or become, how to act, how to live our lives accordingly. This year has been a huge test of my faith and these questions I have brought to the surface of my mind, thoughts I once thought of as a "why wasn't my time with them" kind of thoughts. But none the less there they were brought to my mind many times through out this past year. My faith has grown, my trust in God the father and his will for my life has left me feeling contempt at the moment. I still struggle with understanding what God wants of me... but maybe that is something i'll always struggle with, something we all will struggle with. But every day I am learning what true trust entails and how to give all of mine to God. I am afraid I may never fully understand the whole meaning of it but maybe i'll get closer rather then farther.:)

In His time

God has been speaking to me

The picture on the left is the sunrise on the way back to school. If you look really close on the left hand side the telephone pole looks like a cross. God was with us! This is just one example of Gods beauty!:)

The picture on the right is the sunset from the other day!

Everyday I can see his glory, his beauty, his unfailing love!

I went for a walk yesterday with 3 of my really close friends and I saw the most beautiful sunset ever! I kept telling my friends "Look at how beautiful the sky looks right now" and they didn't really care much about it.

God has been doing little things for me lately, things that make me really happy or brightens my day, like the sunset. God knows exactly what makes you happy and he squeezes it into each and every day. Some times we just forget to pay attention to it, sometimes we just get to busy and rush through the day. God has been showing me that you can never be to busy to pay attention to Him.

This semester I have been extremely busy, way more then I was last semester, but there is something different this time. I have been more content with myself and have seen God's presence in my everyday life, even on the busiest day.

I've been playing a lot of music lately. The cello, classical guitar, piano, singing and what I've come to terms with is that every time I do any of it I am worshipping the Lord through it all. Every second on every day I am praising my King!!

The Lord is So merciful and cares SO much for me, even when I don't feel like I deserve it. He is always there!:)

Going into this semester/new year I had this reassurance that it was going to be a great semester. Now that I'm living it, I can see clearly now! God’s gentle voice is speaking to me everyday and as I fallow, I know I'll do great things for his glory. Now what exactly? I have no idea, but that is in Gods hands, so i have nothing to worry about.

In His time,
