God Loves YOU

God Loves YOU

This song has been not only on my mind but on my heart for several weeks. Can anyone really hear my heart that is crying for help? My cry is deep down, just waiting to burst out.

Satan attacks and attacks day in and day out.

But when this happens of why I feel so far away for God and from everyone else this comes to mind when I am finally starting to feel peace.

I believe in the sun even when it’s not shining
I believe in love even when I don’t feel it
And I believe in God even when He is silent
And I, ….
No dark can consume Light
No death greater than this life
We are not forgotten
Hope is found when we say
Even when He is silent

This incredible song is by a group called BarlowGirls, and it is so true. As it is stated in Deuteronomy 31:6 it says, “…never will I leave you or forsake you”.

So, if you are like me, feeling like no one can hear you, wanting to feel so close to the Lord and others, have hope because He is always there with you! Keep seeking His face, don’t ever stop. And, after a while, you will notice that everyone was there all along.

Here is a poem to show hope and encouragement.

One night I dreamed a dream.
As I was walking along the beach with my Lord.
Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand,
One belonging to me and one to my Lord.

After the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that at many times along the path of my life,
especially at the very lowest and saddest times,
there was only one set of footprints.

This really troubled me, so I asked the Lord about it.
“Lord, you said once I decided to follow you,
You’d walk with me all the way.
But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.”

He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you
Never, ever, during your trials and testings.
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.”


What Does Love Look Like?

What Does Love Look Like?

Arms Wide Open by Misty Edwards

“What does love look like?” is the question I’ve been
“What does love look like?”
“What does love look like?” is the question I’ve been
Asking of You

I once believed that love was romance, just a chance
I even thought that love was for the lucky and the
I once believed that love was a momentary bliss
But love is more than this
All You ever wanted was my attention
All You ever wanted was love from me
All You ever wanted was my affections, to sit here at
Your feet

Then I sat down, a little frustrated and confused
If all of life comes down to love
Then love has to be more than sentiment
More than selfishness and selfish gain

And then I saw Him there, hanging on a tree, looking at
I saw Him there, hanging on a tree, looking at me
He was looking at me, looking at Him, staring through
I could not escape those beautiful eyes
And I began to weep and weep

He had arms wide open, a heart exposed

Arms wide open; He was bleeding, bleeding

Love’s definition, love’s definition was looking at me
Looking at Him, hanging on a tree
I began to weep and weep and weep and weep

This is how I know what love is, this is how I know
What love is

And as I sat there weeping, crying
Those beautiful eyes, full of desire and love

He said to me, “You shall love Me, You shall love Me
You shall love Me, You shall love Me”

With arms wide open, a heart exposed
With arms wide open, bleeding, sometimes bleeding

If anybody’s looking for love in all the wrong places
If you’ve been searching for love, come to Me, come to
Take up your cross, deny yourself
Forget your father’s house and run, run with Me
You were made for abandonment, wholeheartedness
You were made for someone greater, someone bigger, so
Follow Me
And You’ll come alive when you learn to die

Where Has My Summer Gone?

Hello fellow bloggers. I have not been on for quite sometime, I have been pretty busy with work. Not that anyone really cares or really truly reads my blog. But, I just felt the need to throw that in there. 

As many are writing, fall semester is just around the corner, and I cannot believe it. Where has my summer gone?

Many upon many will be asking that. Some more than others. There are many out there, getting all ready for the big move in day. It is very exciting and nerve wrecking all at the same time. But, make it the time of your life. Now, that does not mean you have to drink or go to parties to have fun. Make life long friends, have memories, laugh, cry, but most importantly, learn. Now, that would seem like a duh kind of question, but many do not learn from their professors, their mentors, friends or even fellow classmates. This is a time to learn, to find out who we are or who we want to be. It is a time to grow, to make mistakes, to succeed, to laugh, to cry, to sleep (or what is of it), and to love.

College is a place where if you didn’t have the best high school experience to change that and have a clean plate for college. Be who you were made to be. Be the person maybe you want to be, a few changes here and there won’t hurt.

Now, my thoughts are just spilled into this web-post. I am sorry for my bad grammar and for thoughts that have just been thrown out there. It will get better, as it is only my second year in college, I hope to become more of a writer and reader. I love both, but it is a challenge at times to do either. Here’s to learning, laughing, making mistakes, and loving this year. Make the most of every moment.

Until next time. 

Heading to the beach in 3 days!

In three days, my sister and I will venture off to the beach! I am very excited! While I am down there, I would like to blog. I have not blogged yet about my time in Thailand. So, that will be on my, to do list! I am sorry for not having anything, for those who are following me. I will and want to get back into writing a blog and several about my time to Thailand. Image

Cannot wait until I have time to write about my time in Thailand and the beach. Have a wonderful day everyone!

My Love for K-POP


Two friends of mine, Sarah and Marisa introduced me to Korean music just as I was flying to Thailand. While on the airplane, I had many, many hours available to be able to listen to this genere of music. And I must say, I became pretty hooked to it ever since then. I have no clue to as what they are saying, but the vocals and instruments are beautiful. I hope to one day to visit South Korea, but it is whatever is in the mind of God’s and not of my own.

This video is from a Korean band titled, 2AM, there music is much softer, it is very beautiful, hope you all enjoy!

Heading to Thailand Soon!

In just a few short days, I along with ten others will be traveling to Thailand. As I said in my recent post, we will be working in an orphanage(s), traveling to a village, helping out at a university with college students, doing a women’s ministry, and doing a prayer walk around the city. I have never left American soil, so I am beyond excited to walk on Thailand soil!

During these past few weeks our leader, Dr. Ed would ask each of us, “Use one word to describe how you are feeling about the trip.” One of the very first word to go was, “excited” so the rest of us would quickly think of a word and say, “pumped, thrilled, nervous, blessed, etc…” You had to shout out a word before someone would take it or else you would have to think really hard to find a word to describe how you were feeling. Now, if I would ask myself how I am feeling about the trip I would say, shocked, but in a good way. I cannot believe that my first semester as a freshman is just about over and I am traveling the whole way around the world in just a few short days. To be honest, it felt like it would never come! The only thing standing in my way are two papers and two finals then I am DONE my first semester of college! Back to why I chose the word, shocked. A few months ago, around November when I threw the idea out to my parents they were a little hesitated. My parents have been a little hesitated since I threw the idea out to them when I was in the sixth grade. Ever since I was in the sixth grade, I have felt called to over seas ministry. Do I know where. No. I have no idea! But, I enjoy it that way, at times, because it will be very exciting to see how God will open up doors, or close them. God has opened up an incredible opportunity to be able to travel to Thailand with an awesome group of people. I still cannot believe that I have such a great opportunity to be able to go across the globe and to share the gospel with those who need it. I am also speechless that all of our money came in, ALL PRAISE AND GLORY TO GOD. God is so good. That is all I have to say about that, because I am still in awe about it.

Please continue to be praying for my team as we prepare ourselves and as we all are finishing up our school work. I cannot believe that in a week from now, my journey will begin. My journey of a lifetime to a beautiful country with beautiful people.
