This is a topic that most girls sit up talking about at a slumber party. We dream about our prince charming sweeping us off our feet. Telling us that we are captivating and that he will love and never leave us. This is a desire for every women in this world. Including me. When i think about this desire that i have i wonder why God created me with this feeling. I know that God created a man and a women to become one and love each other and be there for one another for as long as they live but there has to be more. This must be the heart of God. I mean He created us right? I believe this is God's desire for us. He longs for us to love and cherish Him and never want to leave Him as well. It even says that we were created in the likeness of Him. I don't know. Just thinking about it makes me sometimes get super excited to find my husband and have a family of my own that will be totally on fire for God, but yet there is a part of me that gets super nervous and i wonder if God even has someone out there for me. I wish i could just fast forward time, it seems like it would be so much easier. My heart just feels a little heavy right now. I feel super confused on where i am suppose to go. Where God wants me to go. But....i know that right now God has everything under control and my future in the palm of His hand, so I'm not going to worry.

Prince Jonathan

"Nothing can hinder the Lord from saving, whether by many or by few." - 1 Samuel 14:6

This is such an incredible verse. This explains the power and the confidence that He has in His children. God doesn't need our strength or wisdom. He just needs us to be instruments of Him. He wants to use us for His glory. The story of Prince Jonathan defeating the Philistines with just his armor bear and himself. An army of 100,000. That is ridiculous. But Jonathan has incredible trust in God. He said in verse 6, " Perhaps the Lord will act on our behalf." Wow, he was just going on a perhaps that God will save them and help them. But the thing with Jonathan, he was ready to serve God no matter the cost. He trusted God with his life. He was going through life with a mind set, i will die trying or don't try at all. Jonathan took a risk. A leap of faith. A risk means you don't know what is going to happen or how it is going to turn out but you trust God anyway. I mean when you look at it, Jonathan's risk was to defeat an army of 100,000 people. That is a pretty scary risk. But yet He had faith in God that He would fight on their behalf. That is the kind of faith that God is looking for in His children. Child-like faith that depend on their Father.
God is able to do impossible things. He doesn't need us to do miracles or amazing things. He wants to work through us, especially our weaknesses. So whatever your risk in life today is, trust God with it. He will act on your behalf if you have faith that He will. God will do amazing things through your weaknesses.( 1 Corin. 12) Just trust Him. That is my biggest thing in life right now. So this story really inspired me to trust God with the things that seem impossible right now. He is able!

Psalm 91

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom i trust."

Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers and under His wings you will find refuge, His faithfulness will be my shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror or night or the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilences that stalk in the darkness, nor the plagues that destroy at midday.

A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but they will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.

If you make the Most High your dwelling, even the Lord, who is my refuge then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
"Because he loves me." says the Lord, "I will rescue him; i will protect him, for he acknowledges My name. He will call upon me and i will answer him; i will be with him in trouble, i will deliver him and honor him.

With long life will i satisfy him ad show him my salvation.

This is my all time favorite chapter in the bible. It talks about the love of God that He has for His children that love Him. It is such a great reminder for me whenever i get worried about my future i can look at this promise that the Lord has for me and know that my Lord has everything under control. So i just wanted to share this and tell all of you that the Lord will protect and rescue those who love and follow Him. What a wonderful thing that the Creator of the world loves me enough to protect me and be there when i call on His name. He says that when i call, He will answer me. Maybe not on my time but on His perfect and wonderful timing. That is the greatest feeling ever.

Wow. I haven't been on this page for a while. So many things have happened and i have felt God so clearly again! I love being in the presence of my God. I have been out at Lake Geneva Bible Camp and there are so many incredible speakers that i have heard. I plan to write some of the things that i have learned from them here on this page. I hear all theses speakers and all of them are so on fire for their King and love people so much. I can see the compassion on their faces for the lost and the excitement to tell them about God. It is soo amazing to see that and experience the message about what God is telling them to share and what God is teaching them everyday. The one thing i love about camp is it is a refresher. Its a breath of fresh air and everyone there is sooo welcoming. I love being around people who are so in love with Jesus Christ. Its like one big happy family. I just cant even imagine what heaven will be like. I bet it will just blow my mind. Well, i know it will. One thing i have learned that is so true, God is always doing more then we think. God is sooo big and He is soo beyond our imagination, so His plans and thoughts are far greater then mine.

The Golden Jar of Manna

My day was pretty great. I went to work today and i worked with Rosie. She is such a sweet lady and is so fun to work with. My work has been going by really slow lately, so it was nice to work with someone that makes time go by a little bit faster.

I also went to the Family Camp night service with my mom and sister. It was super good and it got me more pumped for senior teen camp coming up. God moves in such powerful ways there and I'm so excited to see what He is going to do this year. The pastor talked on the ark of the covenant and how people are looking for it here on earth ( like Noah's ark) and some people say that they have found it, others say that they have it and are guarding a cave that they say it is in. Anyway, Pastor Denny said that he knows where it is at for sure. He explained to us that it is in us. We have the ark of the covenant inside of us. The presence of God is no longer in the ark but dwelling in us. He talks about it in Acts 2 on how the Lord came as a wind in the presence of these men and filled them with His presence. Then they were amazed and looked at each other and saw a flame above each one of them. Pastor Denny thinks that God right there said that you now have my Spirit with you.

Also, the ark of the covenant has three items in it:
1. A golden jar of manna
2. Aaron's staff that budded
3. Tables containing the commandment

So today he talked about how we carry the golden jar of manna with us since we have the ark of the covenant living inside of us. I guess the history behind the golden jar of manna is when the Israelites were in the desert, God provided manna for them to eat. So the Lord told them to place a golden jar of manna to be a testament that God provided for them in time of need and rescued them. It was a reminded that the Lord was there for them and provided. So we carry that jar of manna inside of us as a testimony that the Lord provided in our lives. If the Lord healed you, He can heal you again. If the Lord saved you from danger, He can save you from danger again. If the Lord comforted you in time of sadness, He will comfort you again. The Lord is the same, yesterday, today and forever. If He parted the Red Sea, He could part it again if He wanted to.
So when we need God in our time of need, show God your golden jar of manna and tell Him that He provided here so He could do it again. Its all on faith that He will bless you. And if it doesn't happen, then we need to have faith that He is doing the right thing for us. This is just what i learned today and was excited that i learned something new about God. That was my prayer for a while and the Lord answered it once again!

My Dear Friends

This has been on my heart for a while and i just want to write down some thoughts that i have on my dear friends. I love them all so much and i want them to know how important they are to me. So i will choose a friend each day (well try to) and write about them and the things that i have learned from them and why i love them so much.

So i would like to tell you about my friend Shanna. I went to St. Cloud today by myself for the first time and i brought her a long. She is such an amazing woman of God and has such a heart for people. She always makes people feel special and always wants everyone to be happy and comfortable. I look up to her so much for the standards that she has. I love her so much and i have known her all my life pretty much but have just started hanging out with her. I am so glad God has brought her into my life and always will be blessed from being her friend. Shanna also has amazing inside and outside beauty. Her beauty from the inside is so beautiful and it is how a woman of God should look like. Her heart is so pure and so sweet and that is something that i look up to so much. I know that God has incredible plan for that girl's life and i cant wait to see where God brings her.
