My Life Journal...
Hello Loves<3 My life is a journey; a journey that is lead by God only. He is my shepherd. He guides my ways & knows what is ahead of me. He is my best friend that keeps me on track & will not lead me astray. He is my Father. In His arms I will be safe. He picks me up when I am down; & whispers in my ear that everything is going to be ok. He directs me back to the right path when I wander astray. I want to remain in His arms forever. In His everlasting love is where I will stay. I am reminded of his great love every day when I step out the door into His beautifully created world. The Lord is my EVERYTHING and I live my life for Him.
My life journal is a place where I have the freedom to express my thoughts, feelings, & emotions through words, pictures, & music… it is a place to let my mind go free of stories of me as a daughter, a sister, a friend, a student, a disciple, an artist, & a daydreamer.
I’m just an 18 year old girl who has big dreams in this big world. I have the same struggles as any normal human does & can be quite emotional at times, but I always try my best to put my focus right back on God & continue to gain my faith in Him. I know that in the midst of our struggles, He is there ready to hold us up. He is sooo FAITHFUL & even through the worst of the storms & pains, we experience His REALNESS, His POWER, His GRACE, & His LOVE even MORE.
This is my story. This is my personal journal that goes with me through my days in life. Enjoy(:

"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen." #Ephesians 4:29
“When God says no, it can be heartbreaking, suffocating and something that will cause you to examine your entire life. But it is also for a greater good, a good that has not been seen by our eyes, a good that has not been touched by our hands, a good that will ultimately bring glory to Christ and a good that will ultimately bring about restoration to ourselves. For now, it’s okay to mourn and cry out; Christ understands the pain of rejection more than anyone in all of existence.”
– T.B. LaBerge // Jesus, His Grace and the Gospel (via tblaberge)
“It really is true to say, “I cannot live a holy life,” but you can decide to let Jesus Christ make you holy. “You cannot serve the Lord…” (Joshua 24:19) —but you can place yourself in the proper position where God’s almighty power will flow through you. Is your relationship with God sufficient for you to expect Him to exhibit His wonderful life in you? … The more weak and feeble you are, the better. The person who is still relying and trusting in anything within himself is the last person to even come close to saying, “I will serve the Lord.””
– My Utmost for His Highest // Oswald Chambers (via laurenarlene)
“Why am I so desperate to have you in my arms? Why does my heart race with just the thought of you? Have these emotions found their way to a place that I did not know of? Stay, answer these questions with me, for I could use the company; and you are rather lovely tonight.”
– T.B. LaBerge // Unwritten Letters to You (via tblaberge)
When we lose sight of Christ; purity, love, salvation, redemption, obedience, and everything that Christianity tells us to do, will seem impossible. But when we keep our focus on Christ and what He wants? It becomes as natural as breathing.
We can never dictate the commands of God; we can only serve obediently to His gentle and most beautiful call.
