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.

3 Days In Counting!

Hello my lovely readers!

So my official last week at home is coming to an end.. I cant believe how fast time has been flying these last couple weeks.. Its kind of crazy to think that I've been home since October 29th and It doesn't feel like its been that long, I mean its Almost been 3 months! Pretty crazy if you ask me!

Well God is still GOOD and keeping me pretty calm about leaving to NH in a few days. I was starting to freak out a little bit the other night but then I remembered what God has been telling me.. "Taylor I have a plan for you! You are not going alone, I am going with you." Its really comforting to know that I am not going alone and that God does have a plan and if you just trust Him He will provide when the time is right!

Today I got to talk to a girl named Taylor who went to His Mansion last year and graduated in the Spring. It was so comforting to here first hand testimony about this place and how much she loved it there! God is so great and He has completely transformed her life! I can't wait to be free from my pain and be better able to allow God to transform me! Taylor had so many encouraging words to share and advice to give and even put it out there, that I could call here any time if i have any more questions on what to expect or what to bring and such. It was such a blessing to have the opportunity to speak with her! I know this will be a very hard year but the reward in the end is going to be so worth it!

3 days left and still so much to do! Its coming so fast and to think back in October I was ready to leave and go somewhere then! I never thought I would be able to make it till January, and here I am sitting in amazement on how fast time as flown! Funny how life happens to us like that!

I know it'll be hard at first but I look forward to the challenge God is placing before me! I love me a challenge!!

Please be in prayer for me over the next year! I am not allowed to have my computer but you never know if there will be an opportunity some time for me to get on and blog! I guess you just have to wait and check back every now and then to see if I've updated!

With LOTS of love,
Taylor

P.s Ill post my testimony on here some time Sunday hopefully! If not then, for sure before I leave!

I never thoughts I would ever be able to post my testimony on here, but you know what? I am no longer afraid! I trust God completely and I truly want to change and be healed! I want my story to be used to change lives! If that means no more secrets, that by golly NO MORE SECRETS!!! I am DONE living a lie! Its about times I speak the truth and let God use me! With that being said, keep your eyes out for my next blog either Sunday or Monday!

Peace!
