That I May Know Him

And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. ~ 1 John 5:20 (KJV)

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:29

I love my mami and my brother

Hi mom (and Rev. if you're reading this, and whoever else reads this! HI Y'ALL)

I have a lot to tell you, but I'll wait till you come back. Most of it is giving thanks to God. Even though I'm having a long and somewhat difficult week, I feel God's hand in my life. It's so wonderful to be in constant communication with Him all day long. I just give Him a shout and He comes through. I'm praying for the Lord to help my unbelief, and He is. I can taste His goodness now and I can't stop talking about Him.

I went to church with Virginia tonight and I treated her to supper afterwards. Long stroy, but she finally broke up with Mike (last week) and God caught her right back. Sonia put her in touch with Gab's brother, who also went through and engagement breakup and they seem to be hitting off, at least on a friendly (and e-mail) basis for now. I'm real happy for her! That is an answered prayer. Mike actually seems happy, it's odd. I'm sure he's hurting, just not letting it show....

Church was really from 7 to 8, since preachers class started. All the women felt so unwanted afterwards, lol, as we left to church for the men to start the class. Seems like alllll the men of our church are taking the course!!!

I have to go pray now and go to sleep too. I'm praying for you mom, that God is giving you plenty of witnessing oppurtinites and that He'll bring you back safely. Rev., you're always in my prayers too, I cannot wait to see you and hug you in person. Actually, I cannot wait to HUG both of you!!!!! I'll just hug myself for now, but that's kinda odd!? I'll just wait till I see you both.

There's more to say, but it's easier in person, also cuz I'm kinda sleepy. Please keep me in prayer. I cannot wait to finish this week...I still need to prepare my lesson for Awana and I'm also teaching children's church this sunday. Please pray that I give good lessons. I'm also looking forward to go tract passing on saturday. After the metro, I'm thinking of going downtown to by me something in a new bible case...and maybe a nice skirt...I look good in nice skirts...ok, here I go again, blablabla...

Well, meet you guys in dreamland!!! Bye for now. I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!

Week in Review

I had a good, though very long week. Work has been so crazy busy, that by thursday I had lost my mind. At lunch time, I stepped out to Tim Hortons to get a sandwich and a coffee. My office manager, Joanne, asked me to get her something too, but she also wanted a soup. When I got to Tims, I called her to ask which kind of soup she wanted, and 2 minutes later, I'm getting her a sandwich (the wrong one) an FORGOT about the soup. But for some reason, I got her a donut!!!! Luckily, she knows me well, and has a really good sense of humour.

Friday was just as bad. I have this thing now in the morning that as I'm having breakfast I watch the news. And what was on the news? Another mining accident in West Virginia, but it took me about 10 minutes to figure out that it was ANOTHER incident. I was really confused when I saw the governor giving a breifing. I was thinking, "didn't this happen 2 weeks ago, what day are we." Then in the evening, we have AWANA at church every friday night at 7. People start arriving around 6:30, but since I go straight from work I get there at 6:15. I'm the one with the key, but I hate opening the church cuz of the alarm....with my luck, I know I'll set it off!!! So I usually wait for Dan (u know, Dan & Donna and their two girls, Ashley and Amanda), since he's always the first to arrive. But last night he was late, and by 6:45 there was nobody! So I called Dan in a panic and utter confusion on his cell asking him what day we were!!! Turns out he was on his way in....he made fun of me all night

You can see why I took today (saturday) as a sabbatical. I didn't go tract passing...and I'm not sure if anyone went. But I hate not going, for whatever day felt very empty. I love saturday tract passing, it's the highlight of my week...I already can't wait for next saturday.

Mom left yesterday and will be back on the 30th. Please pray for traveling mercies and opportunities to witness during her travel.

That's it for me,

God Bless,

What a merciful Saviour

As I already mentioned, I am very thankful that during this vacation I got to spend time in prayer and in Bible reading.

I now realize how the devil can keep us so busy that we forget to spend some quality time with the Lord. It's not just about lack of time, it's about fatigue. Between juggling work, and even servicing in the church, I feel so drained by the time I get home. I will, however, accept much responsibility for that.

My prayer for 2006 till all the days of my life, is that the Lord will cast down all my personal idols (i.e. internet, television, phone, etc.), and anything that takes precious time away from my God. Nothing should come in between my Lord and I. In 2005, I made Jesus as an "acquantance" instead of my Heavenly Father with whom I commune on day to day basis. That's not showing love to someone whom you claim you love very much. I thank Him for being a merciful Lord, and for forgiving me of my sins over and over again.

Jesus Christ is coming soon. I have wasted quite a few days of my youth on lousy earthly goods, instead of investing in Heavenly and eternal goods. I fear the judgment seat of Christ because I know I have not done my best for Jesus. I know you can't lose your salvation, for we are saved by grace, but we can lose our rewards.

The reason why I am sharing all this with you is because I want to thank God for making me aware of all my flaws, and for perfecting me. I received a blood donation when I accepted Christ as my Saviour, but I still needed a heart transplant. I thank Him for His heart. It's funny, and shameful actually, how we ought to be His servants, yet He serves us greater and much better than we deserve. What a wonderful and merciful God!

Praise be to God in the Highest,

God Bless

You did it

O victory in Jesus. You did it. Now we can share thoughts on the internet. Whenever I can't reach you by phone, cell, or face to face, you know where I will post my messaged. lol

I finally fixed up my blog

I really wanted to take advantage of the "holidays" to catch up on so much. Like sleeping...I got plenty of beauty sleep, and seriously, I look 3 years younger. I also did plenty of Bible reading, which truly purifies your soul and nourrishes your hunger and thirst for the Lord.

I also got addicted to blogging!!!!!!!
