I am one called and loved by the Savior of the World. I am called to be in this world, but not of it. I am called to be different. This is just a peek into this journey of life that God is bringing me through to shape me into who He has called me to be.
"For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds." 2 Corinthians 10:3-4
"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:2
The next time my fellow graduated friends see me, they won’t even recognize me.
This is a good thing. :)
I’d like to briefly share what I prefer to call a “God moment.” The funny thing is…I wasn’t even present for it.
My dad was out picking up groceries and felt led to go into one particular store he wasn’t planning on entering. He went inside, and as he was looking around he bumped into a woman. It just so happens that her son used to go to the same K-8 school that I attended, and my dad recognized her so they started chatting. He told her about my calling to be a missionary, and then received an unexpected reply. She remembered me and told him that her family would really like to help support me financially when I’m on the mission field.
I haven’t even started fundraising yet because I’m still waiting for approvals and processes to complete. When my dad told me about this I was so touched and reminded yet again of God’s faithfulness. He knew that I needed just a little bit of encouragement in this time of waiting…something to keep my hopes up.
I love God so much. I don’t deserve any of the grace and favor He has shown me.
have you ever loved a lyric so much that when you hear it feels like your heart is trying to burst out of your body
This is what makes me love music so much. It can be so deep and powerful.

When you’re in your 20’s, learning a new language doesn’t come too naturally. :P I wish I had grown up bilingual.
“Will you be satisfied with $600 a week?”
Is this real life??? $600 being a part-time nanny. Oh I really hope this works out! It’s either too good to be true or an amazing gift from God. I’m praying it is the latter!!!
Things are looking up!
What is happening? :P
My eyes hurt. lol
This is not a good thing.
