Just a Thought...

Hello Everybody!
I just wanted thank ya'll for the comments below, they were very encouraging!
I also wanted to make clear that, I don't think all girls go to Bible College to get a man...
I didn't want to make anyone upset, I have friends at Bible College...they want a degree in something special, or they want a certain career,or they feel the Lord has led them there... My desire is to Marry a Godly Man and have a family...I don't want a career...or a certain degree in anything. So I feel no need to go to Bible College, I am still learning. I am trying to learn different homemaking skills, I am trying to learn new things in piano, to be a better teacher....I'm even trying to pick the guitar back up...
What I'm trying to say is, I'm not against women gaining wisdom...
We should always be learning new things!
I didn't get any negative comments or anything, I just wanted to make sure ya'll understood!
Anyway, again I do appreciate all the comments,
I've been praying and the Lord has been blessing me,
I've just been trying to encourage myself in the Lord!
Here are some verses I read last night that encouraged me, I love reading through the book of Psalms, I always read a chapter there before I read my daily Bible just always has something to encourage me!

Psalms 17:1,2,3,

Hear the right, O Lord, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips.

Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal.

Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing;I am purposed that my mouth shall not trangress.

Psalms 17:5,6,7,8

Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not.

I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, Oh God:incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.

Shew thy marvellous loving-kindness, Oh thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up againest them.

Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings.

Psalms 37:3,4,5

Trust in the Lord,and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

Delight thyself also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Is This God's Best??????

This year has been quite a year.
I have experienced things that have been very hard, one that I really had no idea how it came to pass. I've been praying alot, and thinking about this...

This year a young man asked to court me, it was a very hard thing in my life.
My heart was really somewhere else...
It was really hard for me when a very nice young man asked to court me, I was really very sad...He was a friend and a good christian guy, he even had the respect and honor of going to my daddy, But I couldn't understand why he wanted to go into a courtship with me.
This kinda situation requires alot of prayer, when you have to determine God's best..from the Devil's best. The devil's best may not be a wicked unsaved person, it's just not God's best.

The Devil wants to send someone or something to distract you from God's will...
When you know in your heart that this is not the one...why go into a relationship, I did have other people give me advice during this time, But the best advice is to follow God... and your God given authority and help, your parents! Sometimes they can see things that you could be blinded in, or maybe they know how to handle certain things. I would never go into a courtship without their approval!
I did cry because I didn't want to do something wrong and
I didn't know how this guy could have fallen for me.
I'm praying that the Lord will help me...
I read a book awhile back, about a Divine the book, the girl prayed for the Lord to send her the one man that He specifically made for her...that like Rebekah and Isaac the Lord would bring both of them together and they would both know that only God could have done this.
That's what I'm praying for, me and Jennifer were talking the other day about this...being 18 and 23 we talk about this alot. When we talk we often say something about Bible college...Because that's what girls go to Bible college around here for, they'll tell you that...because if you want to marry a good Godly man where do you find him...Bible college!!!
I'm praying for my man...But I want to know that God gave me that man, sure it would be alot easier to go off have fun...and grab me a senior on the way out! But I believe the Lord will send that man that he made for me, I believe that it's the Lord's will for me to get married and have a family...that is my desire, if the Lord changes that... then I'll obey him.
Please pray for me...
Please pray that I am making the right decision concerning courtship...and pray that the Man that God has given me will cross my path, if he has not already!
~I want God's Best~

Living Joyfully in the Lord's 1 Year Anniversary

Yes it's true Sunday, will be 1 year since my first post on this blog!
Me and my sister had a blog together before this some of you might remember it, we were Vessels Unto Honor...We had that blog for awhile and then we decided to split off and have two separate blogs...and that's where my blog came into the picture!
Psalms 5:11 had become my life verse so I decided to name my blog after it. I wanted to try to be joyful in everything I did! So I wanted to encourage everyone to do the same!
I hope my blog has been an encouragement and I hope it has pointed other's to Christ, and lifted up Christ in every post!
For my Blog Anniversary I'm giving away a CD... it sounds really good! It's from Faith Music Missions so you know you can trust their music! I'll draw the name of the winner on Monday, if you would like to enter twice, just post about it on your blog with a link to mine!
Have a wonderful day!

Psalms 46:1,2,&3

God is our Refuge and Strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore will not we fear,
though the earth be removed,
though the mountains be cast into the mist of the sea;
Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled,
though the the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.
