I haven't blogged in the longest time, but I felt the need to tonight. A lot has just been on my mind lately. But did you ever ask yourself, "Why me?" or "Why did this have to happen to me?!" Thats what i asked myself each day last year. What a year 2012 had brought me, so much good things has happened to me but some bad, but hey we all go through reough moments. I thought 2012 was going to be "my year" instead it wasn't what I thought it was going to be. Now since a new year started. I'm going to try to be a better person inside and out. I know last year I could of tried better on things that I failed at. I lost a lot through family and friends and I really regret not trying harder. This year there are so many great things coming towards my way. I'm finally graduating, (I can't believe it) only one more semester then I'm done! Not that long ago, I got accepted to HACC Lancaster which was my dream college I was hoping I would get accepted to. I'm going there to become a Cardiac Sonographer (you monor the heart, like an ultra sound). I'm so excited! Anyways, this song "Mountain of God" I probably listen to this a couple times a week. It just reminds me that God will always be there for you where ever you are in your life. If its bad or good. Don't worry where you are, God has a hold of you and he has an amazing plan for your life!
Every woman on this Earth has the same issue.....beauty. More than half of the woman on this Earth hate how they look. We always put ourselves down saying, "I'm ugly." But did you ever think of inner beauty too? God created you by His own hands to create you PERFECT. Each and every single woman out there is BEAUTIFUL inside & out. One night at my youth groups lock in, every girl in our group has a issue on how we look. We were asked to raise our hands to see who liked how they look, who raised their hands? no one. The next day, we were challenged to wear no make-up and to not fix our hair. Just look how we woke up. Some girls had a real issue with that but you know what everyone that was there that day thought all of us were beautiful just how we are, without any make-up. Yes, all of us wanted to hide our faces so no one could see us but later in the day we finally got the courage to say "WE ARE BEAUTIFUL!" God created each one of us beautiful, we just don't have outside beauty, inner beauty too! So I dare you to look in the mirror each morning right when you wake up and say "I AM BEAUTIFUL!" & see what a difference it can make!
The other day my parents and I spent the whole day together, which we need to do a lot more of. We spent the day up at Hershey and Mt. Gretna. Shopping and walking the trails. I treasured this day, I can tell my parents and I got closer and caught up. We really connected. One point in the day, I tried to talk to my dad on how I want to start over with everything in my religion and want to start fresh. My Dad seems like he wants to start a whole new begginning and everything. So I want him to start reading the bible with my Mom and I every night and start going to church more often as he used to. My Dad and I can now start this whole new journey with our christianity together!
"Show me Your ways, Lord, teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long." -Psalm 25:4-5
I want to get a fresh start with everything in my life, get my life better and most importantly get me closer to you LORD! I'm starting, serving, worshiping, all for you! In the past year, I recognized that I was changing, and really didn't care about my religion. I hung out with the wrong people and felt myself getting changed in the wrong way. But now I'm finally starting to change my ways and care more about life and most importantly JESUS CHRIST! But I believe in that I have a relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit lives within me. I have seen my life be turned upside down and instead of crumbling. God has strengthened me with his word. & it will keep getting better and better each day as i serve you!
