He's Already in Your Tomorrow

This is one of my favorite songs, it encourages me so much...To Know that God knows what My tomorrow holds, and He is going to be there with me whatever I'm going to face. So we shouldn't be afraid to face our future or be afraid to do great things for the Lord.

My favorite verse of this song is the second one...Because sometimes Where I am in my life, I dread the future and cling to the present. Sometimes with people discouraging me, my dreams get pushed away and smashed down...and at times I give up on them. But that shouldn't be, I want to do great things for the Lord, I never want to give up on my dreams...
Often you struggle looking ahead,
Dreading tomorrow, it seems.
Embracing the present, forgetting the past,
Giving up on your dreams
You're standing between, your faith and your fear
Yet no matter the conflict the future is clear.

My Future is so clear...I'll continue to serve the Lord, do His will, walk through each door He opens in my life...until He closes them...and He'll be right there beside me. Because...

He's already in your tomorrow;
He's walking one step ahead. Whether its joy or its sorrow,
He'll do just what He said.
He'll never leave you lonely,
In the land of the great unknown.
He's already in your tomorrow;
Don't be afraid to keep pressing on

So Don't let anyone ever discourage you from doing something great for God! Don't let your Faith turn into Fear....Like the devil will try and do, he'll send little things to discourage you..through your closest friends, If God gives you a desire...or a dream...sometimes even your Christian friends wont understand, and dont want you to do something great for Him, But keep pressing on. Listen to God, not them.

Well I guess that's all I have to say~ Have a Good night Ya'll!

A Matter of Prayer

Hello Everyone,
Just wanted to ask everyone to please be praying for me... I have really been searching my heart about something that I felt God laid upon it a long time ago. I have been praying and seeking God's will in this situation. I ask that you would pray that God would show me His will, and continue to lead me in the direction I'm going if it's His will.

I have been praying for a while about this, and I just want to be sure that it is God's desire for my life...and not just my own Heart's desire. It really seems like God is moving in my life, and my prayers are finally being answered, But I need ya'll's prayers...

That the Lord will show me what His will is, what He wants me to do... in the next couple months...I'm really praying for this and I hope and pray that God will answer my prayers soon, and that if my desires do not match His will...then please pray God will change them and show me another direction to take.
Thanks for your prayers, I'm really trying to knock on Heaven's door with this matter...I pray the Lord will hear my prayer and have mercy on me...and answer them soon!

Across the Miles...There's Someone Praying for You

All around this world I've traveled
Through it all I've come to find
The ties that bind can come unraveled
I've had to face some lonely times
But when I'm tired and feeling low
Oh what a comfort it is to know

Across the miles there's someone praying for me
Across the miles there's someone on their knees
Lifting my name to the Lord above
In joy and pain I can feel the love
And see you smile
Across the miles

Life can be so complicated
Walking through it on your own
When kindred hearts are separated
It gives love a chance to grow
And even though I'm so far away
Oh I'm reminded every day

Across the miles there's someone praying for me
Across the miles there's someone on their knees
Lifting my name to the Lord above
In joy and pain I can feel the love
And see you smile
Across the miles

Little Children Coming unto Him

But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

Today I had the joy of showing the plan of Salvation to two little ones. I know that someone else could have spoken more eloquently and explained it better, But I told them how God could save them, how simple it really was...and Praise the Lord, both Emily and Juan received Jesus Christ as their personal Savior!!!!!! God is so Good, and Salvation is so simple...that all it takes is the Faith of a child to receive it! I am so happy, that God could use me...though I am nothing...use me to help someone else know how they can go to heaven. Thank you Lord for saving souls today!!!!!!!

Random Picture Post.

Hey Ya'll...well this has been a day.
Me and Jennifer were off to meet Granny for lunch, when we got a phone call..that someone broke in at her house and stole her flat screen tv!!!( that's right my granny has a huge flat screen was very cool to watch facing the giants on) Anyway back to the point, they did it in broad daylight, and broke the glass in her door...So you just never know...thank the Lord granny wasn't there when it happened. Me and Jennifer will be staying with her tonight.

Hmmmm next weird thing that happened today, Me and Jennifer went in to Mcd's to grab a bite to eat, because I had piano lessons this afternoon...and while we there, these really weird people were sitting close to us. Not sure what one of them know ''a guy or a girl''...anyway so we are about to leave and the ''it'' came up to Jennifer and asked her did she go to some Middle School? was weird...anyway I was at the drink fountain and a man was beside me getting him a refill too. I asked Jennifer when she came up, what ''it'' wanted( still not knowing what ''it'' was), she told me...the man beside me listening on...and I said very quietly...''well all I want to know is it a dude or a girl?" which the man replied...''that's what I was thinking too!"...and Jennifer said well it went in the Ladie's restroom....''and so the man said well let's hope it's a girl!"...

anyway I was just kinda about to burst laughing, because I didn't even know anyone heard me...but I'm glad I wasn't the only one thinking that.
So that's been my day so far, plus most of my piano students have canceled....and I was really looking forward to the money( I just spent it on some new shoes...shhhh)So here I am typing you all my funny stories of today...while my sister listens to the good part of ''You Raise Me Up'' by the Celtic Women on my cell phone. Lol:)
Here's some Random help brighten your day:)

Ahhhhhhh! This one scares me!!!!! This is Justin, Sarah's friend....with me and Jenn in the a b-ball times :)

Me and Megan on the Beach....oh how I miss my beach!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think I've put this on here yet....Me and Baby Stephen....

Jennifer, on her first day of Kindergarten...and look I'm a little baby...awwww!!!

Here Am I

Last night we were blessed to have Bro. Brenson and Joanna Jennings, missionaries to Niger, Africa. It was really such a blessing to have this couple in our church and in our home.
It was such an encouraging service last night, he preached a very convicting and uplifting could really tell he had a heart for where he was going, and he was willing to go anywhere for the cause of Christ.
Please do pray for them as they head off to the mission field soon.

I also enjoyed hearing how him and his wife knew it was God's will for them to go to this specific place. As Christian's that should be one of our greatest desires to know God's will for our lives. That is one of my desires, to do whatever He wants me to do, to go wherever God wants me to go, to always be in the center of God's will. Like the Preacher said last night, that is the best and the safest place to be, wherever you are..if you are in God's will, then you are in His hands, and No man can pluck you out!
So I asked myself last night, would you be willing to go anywhere God told you go?
And this song came to my mind...

So many lost and dying in this world today
Have you heard their crying
Or do you turn away
The harvest now is plenteous
But the laborers are few.
God needs some willing vessels to be used.

Here am I
I will go
I will reach the lost untold
I will give the Lord control
I will tell them of the crimson flow.

Is it too late for caring
Does Jesus really save
Are we truly praying
For the blind to find their way
Little children are falling into
A burning Hell
Will anyone heed the calling to go and tell?

For my Saviour died
On that old rugged cross
He thought of me when
He counted the cost
How can I say that I love Him
If I don't reply?

Here am I
I will go
I will reach the lost untold
I will give the Lord control
I will tell them of the crimson flow.

Written By; Stephen Snider

So Lord, Here am I...I will serve you here until you call me somewhere else, I pray I will always be in your will. I pray that my will, will never get in the way...As it so often tries.I pray that Your mighty hand of blessings will be on my life, and my familie's lives. We don't deserve you Lord, we don't deserve Salvation, we are so unworthy of everything you have ever done, we complain about the little things, and forget to praise You and thank you for being so good...But yet You keep blessing us.
I'll never understand, how a God so great...could love a sinner so horrible as me.
But I am so glad He does...I love my Lord Jesus Christ, and I praise His Holy Name, and I surrender my life to Him!!!!!!

I'm Back after a short Break:)

Hey Ya'll, Like I said I'm back...I took a little break from the computer...kinda fasting from a couple of things, praying for a friend this week. So that's where I've been.
I'm not sure how much I'll be on here this week, again trying not to spend that much time on the computer. But here's a couple of things coming up and going on in my life...

We had a really good Sunday, this past weekend. Two little boys that came a a couple weeks ago, came again on Sunday....An older man that was recently saved came again on Sunday, too!!!!
The Lord has really been blessing!!!!

We went to another Revival last night, the preacher asked me and my family to sing...everyone's favorite song ''I have been blessed'' that song just covers everything...and it's definitely a shouting song. lol:) I love going to revivals and campmeetings...and I love singing that song!!! and of course we had to copy it for a couple of people before we left.

Jennifer's 24th Birthday is coming up on the 28th!!!!!! She is going to have a really good birthday, I mean how could she not...she'll have her sweetie there:) lol
She's counting down the days...till Jonathan comes~~

Be sure to wear green tomorrow!!!! Or you'll get pinched:) I have my St.Patrick's day shirt all ready!!!

Baby Stephen is doing just fine, he has changed so much in just the first week...I love him, it's so good to have a baby in the family it seems like forever since I've held a little baby~ I'm loving it!

Hmmmm what else has been going on....I guess that's it for now, if something wonderful happens this week I'll let you know...but until then remember...
God is Good....
All the time!!!!!!!

Living By Faith

On Monday, me and my family went to hear a Preacher in a local revival...the service was really a blessing to me.
The preacher preached on Faith, how we get faith, how faith is not faith is the substance of things hoped for...the evidence of things not seen. How God wants to do even greater things than we want to do in our lives...He wants to give us even better things than we ask for. God has so many things in our lives that He wants to give us, if we'd only ask.
All through my life I have tried to have Faith to move mountains, to see prayers answered, I've always tried to never doubt God. Do you know how hard that is? In this world, do you know how hard that really is? But you know it's not just this world that has discouraged me in having faith that God can do anything, He can answer my prayers...Sometimes it's been my Christian Friends...that think I'm crazy because I believe that God hears my prayers, and wants to give me good things Because He loves me. Because I go to Him, with my greatest needs, and my smallest wants...Because I believe God is going to answer my prayer if it's His will. They say well you shouldn't just ask for that certain thing...or you shouldn't believe that, because something might happen and you might get hurt.
I mean really? God wants us to ask for things, God wants us to trust Him... We are not afraid to ask our earthly father for the things our heart desires, we are not afraid he will hurt us..and we are not afraid that he will do something that is bad for us, Because we know he loves us. Do you not think our Heavenly Father would do even better? The Bible tells us that God loves it when we ask for things, God loves us and wants to give us good things! Why should we be afraid to ask...just like our earthly father, our heavenly Father knows best, and if you ask him for it...God will show you his will.
The older I get, the more I search God's word, the more faith I recieve...God is so good. The more I see how good He is, the more faith I recieve. You know sometimes it hurts when other people look down on me for trusting that God is going to take care of me, Because I'd love for them to say, ''I'm going to have faith about this, too..let me pray with you.'' But I guess I can't control that, wish I could....but sadly I can't. So when friends don't get you, when they don't agree with you, when they say your crazy...if you have scripture, then they are the ones that are crazy...God is a faithful friend.
Remember Faith is the substance of things ''hoped for'', the evidence of things'' not seen''...

God Wants to Hear You Sing

God Wants To Hear You Sing

Their chains were fastened tight
Down at the jail that night
Still Paul and Silas would not be dismayed
They said, “It’s time to lift our voice, sing praises to the Lord
Let’s prove that we will trust Him come what may”

God wants to hear you sing
When the waves are crashing ’round you
When the fiery darts surround you
When despair is all you see
God wants to hear your voice
When the wisest man has spoken
And says, “Your circumstance is as hopeless as can be”
That’s when God wants to hear you sing

He loves to hear our praise on our cheerful days
When the pleasant times outweigh the bad, by far
But when suffering comes along
And we still sing Him songs
That is when we bless the Father’s heart.

God wants to hear you sing
When the waves are crashing ’round you
When the fiery darts surround you
When despair is all you see
God wants to hear your voice
When the wisest man has spoken
And says, “Your circumstance is as hopeless as can be”
That’s when God wants to hear you sing"

Thinking about....

Have you ever done something and then totally regretted it... looked up some old friends and didn't like what you found...or have you ever thought back on a certain time and wondered if you had said something or done something it would have changed how everything turned out.
Or maybe you look back at certain friends and wonder what happened???
Maybe you wish you could just go back to those times, when everything seemed to be so simple...and your friends were just like you..... What happened????

I miss ya'll.... and if I could go back and say something.....or show you how much I cared about you again.... I'd do it!

Even though I can't go back.... and I don't know why we grew so far fast....

But I'm still praying for ya'll...and thinking about ya'll....and missing those times we had...
Hope God is blessing ya' He is me.
I hope that someday you'll come to realize that God loves you...and you'll start living for Him again.

Just for Fun!

Well I thought I'd do a fun post, just to lift your spirits! Here are some videos that really make us laugh...and some crazy pictures me, Katie and Bethany took yesterday.
