More of You less of me.

"But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abunantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me." - 1 Corinthians 15:10.

-Lord, I pray that your light will shine through me so that Your name would be glorified in a way that is not of me. I pray that I daily decrease and that You would increase. Oh Lord be my everything... give me such a greater view of You, that I may love You more because You first loved me.

Up North.

This weekend God Blessed me so much with another opportunity to go and visit my best friend Mikey! Some of you know the whole situation and all... but anyways he has been gone for over 11 months now. The great news is that he gets to come home in 49 days! Seems like it was yesterday when I was excited for him to be coming home in 6 months... Now its a little over a month and a half. I am ecstatic! Over the last few months I have seen God work on his heart so much, just the way he sees things differently now. How he wants to change his ways, and realizes that he needs to ask God for the strength. Seeing how he wants to live his life Glorifying God in everything he does. So amazing! I am so Blessed to have him back in my life. Having a friend to pray with and for, and knowing he is constantly praying for me. Someone to do devotions with, growing together in God's word. Just to have a friendship in which God is the foundation and we are glorying Him through all we encounter together. Helping to make life easier through those rough times. Having that accountability partner, constantly lifting each other up. Every time we are together we are laughing and just having so much fun! I Praise God for Mike, it is good to have someone like him in my life and also such a tremendous Blessing to me.

Here are a couple of pictures from our trip :)

"Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends” –John 15:13.

We stopped at Avila Farm and they had the cutest pumpkin patch there!

This last picture I took is so sweet.. Looking at how beautiful the sky was that day, really makes me marvel at how amazing God is, and all the beauty in His creation!

"And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good."- Genesis 1:31

On Saturday my family threw a surprise party for my grandparents for their 60th wedding anniversary. Praise God for 60 years of marriage, these days that is totally unheard of... God has definitely Blessed my grandparents marriage. Really makes me think of 1 Corinthians 13.

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. 1Cr 13:1

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.1Cr 13:2

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing. 1Cr 13:3
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 1Cr 13:4

does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 1Cr 13:5

does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 1Cr 13:6

bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 1Cr 13:7

Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether 
there is knowledge, it will vanish away. 1Cr 13:8

For we know in part and we prophesy in part. 1Cr 13:9

But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away. 1Cr 13:10

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 1Cr 13:11

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. 1Cr 13:12

And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1Cr 13:13 

1 Corinthians 13

Amazing Summer.

I think it is safe to say this summer was by far the best one in a while. I did a lot of really fun things and God really Blessed me tremendously. First he opened my eyes to how big he really is, such an indescribable feeling. Secondly, he blessed me with some truly sincere and great friendships which are founded upon Christ. Some of those amazing friends he Blessed me with this summer are:
Bethany- You are so awesome always there to encourage me with everything we talk about!
Tita- You are always praying for me when times are rough!
Blythe- You are always up for listening to what the latest in life, and I am definitely one that needs someone like that!
Jordan - You always are sincerely happy to see me which is such a blessing!

Thank You all for making a difference in my life, for always having so much fun together, for showing Christ's love to me constantly, and for always putting that much needed smile on my face. I praise God for you guys, love you all!

Some of the exciting fun things this summer consisted of:
Palm Springs

So many Union Line shows I can't even count! So fun!

Angel Games

Hang outs at the Feltens
East Coast trip with the Feltens

Visiting my Best friend whom I love and miss tremendously!

The Beginning..

So I have decided that it is time for new beginnings. I am tired of living for myself, and trying to do everything with my own strength. I will fail every time. It is time to start living to the Glory and Honor of Christ, through Him I can obtain strength and conquer anything that is put in my path. For the first time ever I feel like I am completely satisfied in Christ. I long to live a Christ centered life that I would be in this world not of this world... That people would see Christ in me and I would be a light to others. We are called to be set apart to be used for His Glory and we are divinely His. I am going to trust in the Lord with all I encounter in life, taking courage in Christ... For I am saved through grace alone through Christ Jesus. Living everyday to become a woman after God's own heart.

"I knew you before I formed you in your mothers womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you to be a prophet to the nations." - Jeremiah 1:5
