A Journal Entry- 3 years ago

Jan. 10 , 2012

Dear Lord,

I'm at my breaking point! I feel like a horrible person. Help me! Show me what to do next. I'm tired of being two-faced. I want YOU in my life! Help me! Please, Lord! Transform me! Please, I am pleading ,desperately pleading!

Romans 5;3 
"And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience."


At this point in my life, I can remember being a typical teenager. I was disrespectful to my parents, especially my Mom. I was a controlling person, and said many things I now regret. I now know that I am fortunate that GOD gave me a second chance to make things right. He gave me more grace....(see James 4:6) and I am now so thankful for that. As an 18 year old when I wrote this, I had just started a maturing process that God divinely directed. He made me into a much humbler, kinder individual. Believe me, I still have times when I am tempted to be that controlling person again. Everyday there are moments when I want to open my mouth and say something that is not Christlike nor necessary. I am grateful that God has given me more time on this earth to share HIS love and grace, and to point others to HIM. I don't know how much longer I have to live, only God knows that, and its in HIS hands.While I am alive, I will share HIS love & continue to allow HIM to change me.

Sunsets, Snow, Puppies & GRACE

    What do Sunsets, Snow, Puppies , and God's Grace have in common? In recent weeks , I have been overwhelmed by God's gifts to me in the form of these four things, among countless others.

On a Friday couple weeks back, I experienced this beautiful sunset on my journey home from work. It was so breathtakingly colorful & gorgeous that I felt compelled to stop and take a photo. I just had to capture that moment to save and to share. At the closure of a challenging day/week at work, God gave me this beautiful gift , right when I least deserved it.

Last Tuesday, another gift came in the form of SNOW!!!  

Psalms 51:7  "Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow." I've always welcomed snow as a cleansing on the earth. It brings at quiet, peaceful blanket over the ground. It was also this little guy's FIRST snow!! He had a marvelous time rolling , jumping, sliding, etc. on the cold, wet snow! To see one of God's creatures experience such joy can only bring a smile to the christian's face.

What an amazing hymn, Come Thou Fount! So many lines that are wonderful to be reminded of.    This is a signed 8 x 10 print of my original

This comes from one of my all-time favorite hymns : "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing". This song just about sums up my life right now.

Come, thou Fount of every blessing,
tune my heart to sing thy grace; 
call for songs of loudest praise;
streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it,  
mount of thy redeeming love.
Dear Lord,
Thank you for your everlasting, unchanging, marvelous grace! I'm so overwhelmed by your
mercy and love for me. I pray that I will be ever thankful for it, and always ready to 
share the good news with those I come in contact with. I love you , LORD!
Your Princess,

Best Moments of 2014

For me and my family, 2014 has been challenging. It's been full of troubles & trials, but was filled with many more blessings!! It seems that when God asks us to trust Him through a trial, He's just wanting us to hold on until the "sun comes out". He knows what plans He has for us (Jeremiah 29:11) and just wants us to trust him fully, unconditionally. I'm praying that 2015 will, for all of us, be a year of character growth and an even more amazing walk with our FATHER! Let's look back at some great moments of 2014 for ForeverGodsPrincess! 

It's been quite the amazing year filled with family, friends, and a whole lot of God's love & grace!! Here's to an even better 2015!

Jeremiah 29:11
" For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."

It's a Wonderful CHRISTmas!

lots of christmas printables! These are so pretty. There's 3 or 4 I want to print out for my home.

Luke 2:11-14(KJV)

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Merry Christmas!!
