My attempt at poetry...

"I am swept away by your love for me. Every morning I wake up to see that Jesus you pour your love on me. Me, that is a wicked sinner. Me, that caused your suffering on the cross of Calvary. Me, that continually fails you Lord. Jesus, you died to see me FREE!!"

I love to read!

Ok I finally remembered the verses that the pastor preached on Sunday! Psalms 1:1-3 and I have no idea why that was so hard to remember!
I'm reading this really great book by John and Stasi Eldredge. It's called Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul and it is fabulous! I'm not through with it yet, but I don't want to put it down! It's so good and it's opening my eyes to the love of God in ways that I never thought possible! It's one of those books that I never want to end, it's just that good! I really recommend it!

I don't even know where to start today. God is doing a marvelous work in my life. There was a powerful message preached at church yesterday courtesy of Bro. Cory Bruce! Awesome pastor! Anyway, the message was primarily for fathers, but mothers can also learn from this. As I was listening to this message I was sitting there and God placed this deep longing in my heart to know Him more and to seek his way in this passage. Right now the exact passage that it was preached from slips my mind, but it was in Psalms. I thought, "Wow, I should really get this on DVD for when I have kids!" It was that great!

Anyway, I just wanted to say that because it really was awesome and I felt God move in my heart like he was physically walking around in there! That's an awesome feeling! I don't always feel Him that strongly, but when I do I truly cherish those moments! It's wonderful to know that such an awesome and great God would move in a pitiful sinner's heart...WOW!

I'm almost there...

So today is the day that I meet with my advisor. According to my calculations, I only have three more semesters until I can graduate from ULM! Yay me! I'm excited! Hopefully I calculated right :) So I'm going to need a lot of prayer because I'm going to map out the coming semesters and get all of my classes in order. I can do this...I know I can.

I told my mom about this wonderful tidbit this weekend and I think she was actually a little bit sad. I can't blame her. I'm a little bit scared about it myself. I'm also anxious and hopeful. I'm only three semesters away from the real real world and finding a real job. Whoa! I don't even know what I want to do yet. :(

I have given some serious consideration to getting a master's degree...maybe. I don't know yet. That might be good and then I won't have to jump straight into the real world. I'm really tired of school already though. So I don't know. Anyway, that's all I have right now. I'm sure God will let me know what to do.

Let's give it a whirl...

So this is new for me... I don't really know what to say or anything. I've been looking at the blogs of other people and decided that this can be a great learning tool in my walk with Christ.

I guess I could say a few things about myself first. I'm just a 20 year old girl/woman (not sure where I am yet!) going to school at ULM. I'm trying to set the best example that I can for my younger sister. That gets pretty hard sometimes. Oh and about my little sister, well I say little, she's 14 and one of the most gorgeous young ladies that I know, but anyway I love her so much! She's fun, loving, and she loves my Jesus so that's a big +!

If you couldn't already tell this is kind of hard for me. I'm gonna lay this out there and maybe if someone reads this they might give me some words of guidance. I've been struggling in my walk with God lately. This has been going on for about a year now. I was doing really good, well I thought I was anyway, and then one day everything just seemed to fall apart and it got easier and easier to just skip my Bible reading for the day and not pray as much. I'm trying so hard to get back into the routine of doing that everyday and it is super hard. The devil is a mean mean thing and he is trying his best to keep me super busy this summer so that I can't do the things that I should. I need prayer... big time!
