I have no more tears.
I look to God and I find my strength there
I am not afraid
I am not worried
I have Jesus
What do you have?
The world will not always be here
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes
He will wipe away your tears
He will restore you and put hope in you
He will make you a new
I have no more tears.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.
The Little Things:
- Sunny days
- Reading by a window
- Spending time with family
- See my grandparents smile (a lot)
- Looking at old pictures of friends
- Writing down prayers
- Playing with my dog
- Eating Swedish Fish with siblings
- Having friends that encourage me in the Lord
- Being able to get into deep conversations
- Saying goodnight to my parents
- Talking to a friend that lives 1,698 miles away(sad but sweet that I can talk to her)
- Seeing my parents reading the Word together
- Looking back at prayers that were answered
- Writing letters
- Twinkle lights
- Playing my guitar
We tend to push off the little things away and focus on the big things. But when was the last time you took a step back and look at all the little things. Also, God does not always move in big ways.
I have learned to love the little things. Have you?
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.
This month has been wonderful, hard, beautiful, sad, but yet all together a blessing. Yes, all in one month.
My \the normal long school weeks that full long months. Then on the 24th I had my birthday. I also invited 10 girls over that Saturday. Take note I do not like big parties. But it turned out to be really awesome. I was mostly playing games and eating pizza, ice cream, and cookies. Lost of laughs and giggles.
I was given so much I mean sooooooo much. I felt so privileged. We are all so privileged. 80% of the world’s population lives on $10 a day! That wouldn’t even get you a house or food for a day. And there are people worse of. About 3 billion live with only $2.50 a day! But most importantly 66.49% of the world clams not to be a christian. Which means 33.51% clams to be christians but that does not mean that all of them are saved. (wow that was a lot of math stuff). So I decided to make a donation to Samaritan’s Purse. I had my doubts at first on donating money and not being able to see it put to use. But God put me at peace and let me to donate. No. I am not sponsored. I am writing this out of my heart and my heart alone. So with that being said. Would you donate?? There are many things that you can donate. You can pick where your money is going or you can give where it is most needed. I chose to donate a Bible. You can donate here.
But do remember that money is not all that matters. Prayer is very very important. Praying for our brothers and sisters serving or those who are not saved. Prayer is fighting satan and building the church. So pray. Pray for everything.
I am sick now but otherwise my week and month has gone great. There has been hardships but God is good and He is the one that helps me over them.
Love Y’all and thanks for reading,
Will you donate?
What did or are going to do for your birthday this year?
I cry when I think of people
I cry when I think of the lost
I cry when I can not pray for those who live no longer,
There are so many that turn their faces away from the Light
They see only the world
They are too scared to think about what will happen to them if they die
So they ignore it
I cry for those who push away Christ.
I cry because they will never know the true glory of Christ
I cry because they were so unwelcoming to Him
This may be a little dramatic. But I do have a hurt for those who are dead and they rejected Christ.
Though we can not go back and it was their decision it still hurts.
Who do you cry for?

Q&A time! I have been wanting to do one for and bit. And now that it is a new year. I thought that it would be a good time for it.
It will be set up by person. You send me an email or comment your questions then I will answer you person by person. I will gather up all the questions and write answers, when I get enough people questioning me. I am so excited to see what you come up with! I would love to hear from you!
If you have any question on this than you can email me or comment and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
It will be a new year tomorrow! Wow! So much has happened this year and so much has not. I wanted to share this verse with you. It has been very incouraging to me.
2 Corinthians 5:17
So then, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; what is old has passed away – look, what is new has come!
New is coming! New can be hard to face. It is hard to move on from old. But Christ is now. He is with you. Do not be afraid. How do you look at the new year? With worry or peace? I am in peace because I know that Jesus is with me.
I am also so excited to see what Jesus is going to be doing in 2018. He has done so much in 2017. I have grown so much. Thank you Jesus!
What are you looking forward to in the next year?
Christ is where we stand. He is our foundation.
So when I started my blog I never would have thought that I would have 12 followers so soon! No really, that seem as though it was a lot of followers. But does that really matter? Yes, in a way of those are the people that I am writing to. Those are my followers. Also when I stepped back and really looked at what God had already done. I was amazed. He has done so much in so little time. Thank you God!
So with that thought I was thinking what is the foundation of my blog. Is it to get people to notice me? No. Is it to just right? No. It is for Christ. Christ is my foundation. You may ask why? We in the Bible it says that:
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”
Christ is the rock. He is strong. He is where our focus and purpose should be.
For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
So I thank God for leading me and being my rock. He is the one that I lean on when I can’t do anything. With Him I can. I find my strength, peace, hope, joy, truth, and rock.
Standing on my strong rock,
What has God been doing in your life? When was the last time that you stepped back and thank God? I encourage you to do it right now. 🙂
