I honestly don't really like lessons in life because it usually means that I have messed up pretty bad, or I'm getting prepared to do something WAY outside of my comfort zone. I've learned a few lessons so far this year, and it's only the last day of January. Anyway, one of the toughest lessons I have ahd to learn is to follow God and not your heart.  Lessons are meant to teach us. When we are beeing taught somethingin school, we are required and expected to learn it, and not make the same mistakes over and over again. Same with life lessons. Like for me, I am now expected not to follow myheart, but to follow God. He's teaching me these things, and he wants me to do well, and to do things right. Let God teach you and guide you because you aren't supposed to live life on your own without any help or correction. He created you so that in your life he can be glorified through you. That's why he corrects you and teaches you. He does it for His glory.

(Now I have shared one of the lessons I have learned, and if you want to tell me what you have been learning too, you can leave a comment :D)


My heart

Heart, oh heart, why did you have to fall so hard?
When I followed you, you broke
You left this broken girl to fix you
I followed you thinking you knew the way
You knew what I wanted, and I wanted more love
You didn't point me to the Cross,
It's not your nature
So you threw opportunities, hopes and thoughts at me,
Trying to solves my problem.
I chose you above God,
Such foolishness I am ashamed of.
I listened to you, my heart, and ignored the One pleading,
"This is not right, you'll hurt yourself choose me! Choose me!"
But I didn't listen, I chose you, my heart
And now, I'm here, crying out to God,
Hold me, and heal me.
I'm sorry that I left you, I said I didn't need you.
I chose "love" over Love.

Living Life to the Fullest

I realized, after a while... 3 or so years... that I have not been living out my life to meet God's standards. I have also realized that in order to live my life out to the fullest, I need God's help.
  • What does it mean to live life you the fullest?
Living life to the fullest means to fulfill God's purpose for your live. He has planned out your life, to the last breath that you will take. He knows EVERYTHING that you will do, and nothing is a surprise to him. So, he has also given purpose to your life. Not everyone's life purpose is the same, but God plans you to do things that will glorify him and further His kingdom.

  • Your purpose doesn't have to be super extraordinary
People are called to do different things. You may be called to be a mom or dad without a crazy special profession. In fact, the people who are just parents with a normal job could be the most world changing people because if they are the parents that God intended them to be, they will raise children who could be world changers or who will follow God and live by the example of their parents.

  • If you don't seek God, you won't find worth pursuing
What I am saying is that you NEED to ask God what your calling is. You will have so many regrets later if you follow your "heart" or your instincts. You need to follow and listen to God's heart. You will not live your life according to God's purpose unless you are in tune to His heart. Unless you seek Him, you will be empty. Your dreams, aspirations, and hopes may not be what God has in store. Seek Him first!

My sister said, "One of your thinly-figured friends is self-conscious about her weight, and one of the most gorgeous of your friends is self-conscious about her face. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?!? They are blind with brain-washing/suction/octopus things on their head, which keep them from seeing and understanding what everyone else can see."

You see, they are beautiful... not only on the inside but on the outside. They see themselves as ugly compared to a lot of other girls. But they are, compared to some other girls even more beautiful because they have Jesus in them.

This is for you girls-
You are BEAUTIFUL! Period. End of subject.
You don't see what God sees, you don't see what I see, you don't see what others see. You can only see what you see. I struggle too with feeling ugly, but you know what? This truth still stands that
WE ARE BEAUTIFUL... No matter what ANYONE says. We have a beautiful light that many refuse. We know that we were created in God's image, and in his likeness, and if anyone knows God, they know He is beautiful.

Stop denying the truth!


Stop wishing yourselves away!

Because the reality is that you are beautiful, and you are loved, and you are treasured, and God made you exactly the way He did for a REASON! You are like no other girl on the face of this planet, and that is because God specifically designed you to be His and to be like him. It's your choice to believe, it is your choice to listen and to change your mind on your appearance. But, your choice doesn't change the fact that you are gorgeous.

I was lost 
My heart was uncleansed, unable to be restored
My soul was hardened, for I was born a sinner
Turning one way, only to turn back
to sin, death, and pain.
I was found, but like a sheep,
I wandered away
I left He who could love me
I left He who could save me
I left He who gave it all
But He searched for me,
though he knew where I was
He longed for me,
though I was in reach
He died for me, though my sins were many.

The world is lost
it needs the Savior
it turns to other things
Sin, corruption, and death
The world has turned
From the One who Saves,
Restores, and loves
He is calling them, they ignore him
They walk into death,
though they do not know it.
He reaches for them, but they push away
God to them is a restriction, a story
They do not know that he died and defeated death
for them.
They are blind. They are lost
They don't know Him
But He has overcome the world.

Rough Days

So you know those days where you are exhausted, you have a headache and only one thing went right for you??? Well, today was one of those days. And I am hoping that it will turn around for the better and get bearable, but as of now, I want to just sleep and not leave my room.
I will be possibly taking a nap, later, but for now, I will read my Bible. :) It's the best cure for this case because it helps to turn a bad day into a better day. I think that what makes a true Christian happy is reading the Bible and spending time with God. It makes their day go better and fills them up with good things :) So, I am going to read my Bible, and then I might take a nap :)
