My new unusual blog...

Well guys, I have some news =) I am starting a NEW blog! YAY! So  this blog is going to be about this fictional character i made up. Her name is Molly Freshman and it's about her life as a President's daughter! And it is set in the future! I won't be posting on it on a regular basis like I do on this blog just for you know, but I will try to keep up with it as best as I can!

 I would just really love if you went over there, check it out, and tell me how you like it =)

Truth be told...

These are some things that I got off my Pinterest account! Hope you like them =D

IS THIS TRUE?  as you know, I kind of have a "thing" with those mystery suckers. 
Well... I would have never guessed that! I always wondered what flavor they where...

 !!! 
So true and sad

No joke, My exact thoughts. 
Yes... I need to go on Pinterest a LOT less...

 That might not be big enough 
=)

 There's a disconnect somewhere between my head and my hand 
Yes...

Pretty much... 

 TRY IT REALLY FAST..I thought it was a trick at first. 
IT REALLY DOES! I did this like a thousand times the other day =P

  
I JUST LOVE THIS SO MUCH!

   
hahaha...yes

O.O 
That would be sooooo cool

 So true 
bahahahaha...yep! I hate Walmart

oh yes. 
haha! YES!

Using your talents...

God given talents should be used to glorify him. 
God made you for a reason. He gave you your talents and gifts for a reason.
What are you doing with the talents God has given you?

  I often feel like I am useless... I feel like I am not doing anything BIG for God in my life... I feel like I have nothing to offer him...but I am wrong! I have myself to offer! God made me and you for a reason. None of us were put here on earth to do NOTHING. Everything we do, everything we say is for a purpose. Nothing is without PURPOSE. God can use just ordinary things to work into his BIG plans. We just need to offer ourselves. Give him what we can- our talents. All of us have a talent, we all have something unique about us that God purposely gave to us.
   Not one person is the same, we are all DIFFERENT. We all have different weaknesses and we all have different strengths. But the question is- what are you doing for God today? Are you using your gifts for God, or are you using them for wrong, or are you just not using them at all?
   God gave you your gift for a reason. Your gift might be singing, or playing the piano, or writing, or art, or.... the list goes on and on. We need to use our gifts to bring GLORY to God. He needs to be our purpose in life.
   Use your gifts for God! I know that for me personally it seems as if I am too young or too small to make a difference for God in my LIFE. But I can make a difference. I can make a difference just by letting God WORK through me. Are you giving your gifts and talents to God? Are you giving him everything?

Last night my family and I watched this awesome movie =) You all should really watch it sometime! It really was good and it had to do with a lot about what I was just talking about!

 It really had a great message =D

I AM BACK!

I just arrived back to the U.S.A. yesterday evening! Many of you know that I was away on a Mission's trip to Guatemala! And I just have to say; it was an amazing trip! I've literally been crying like all day because I miss it so much! I got to meet so many people and I had an amazing time. It was just so hard to have to leave all of our team members and also the sweet, kind people who lived in Guatemala! Now I know you are probably wanting to see pictures but I unfortunately can't post any until tomorrow or later tonight! So just for you know I'll have a TON OF PICTURES COMING YOUR WAY! Just keep posted for updates =D




Guatemala Mission's trip statistics
28,000 portions of scripture pasted out
Over 100 visitors to the special services
Over 50 people saved!

Isn't God wonderful? =D Praise God for all of those people who received Christ as their savior! Many of them had never even heard about God dying on the cross for their sins! We are so blessed to be in a country where we can hear about God every day and be able to serve him! 


 
This was one pic I was able to get! It is of some Guatemalan kids on the street who we had given John & Romans to! Aren't they so precious?

Just a few updates...

I Would just like to say that I am so excited about my upcoming missions trip to Guatemala!! I am so excited!! It's in only one week and a half =D I can hardly bare my excitement! I'm counting down the days. I would like to ask that all of you please start praying for my trip, that people might be saved, and that we can get out as many bibles as possible! Also please pray that we have a safe trip =)


I also was going to post something that has been on my mind lately. As a blogger I've noticed that many bloggers are very concerned about how many followers they have, etc. I've even seen people who stopped blogging because they didn't feel like they had enough followers. My mom has pointed out something this week that has come to my attention- It doesn't matter how many followers you have, or how many comments that you get on your posts. What really matters is that you are writing things to please the Lord NOT people. And I realized something- It doesn't matter how many followers you have; as long as your following the right person- GOD. If you have 10 followers or 1,000 followers it doesn't matter! Having a lot of followers doesn't mean your an amazing person just like having a small amount of followers doesn't mean you are an unimportant person! Because let me tell you this- In the Old days and even now God doesn't have a lot of followers, most of the world follow after things of this world and not God. In fact God had 12 followers; the twelve disciples. Does that mean that Jesus was not important cause he didn't have a lot of followers? ABSOLUTELY NOT! God doesn't need to have a lot of followers to be an amazing person. He all ready is an amazing person. And just for example the Pope has a lot of followers; but what does it matter because the pope isn't ANYTHING compared to God. In fact he is teaching a wrong religion and leading many people away from the Lord. 
  I have realized that recently since I've gotten a lot more followers I've began to care more about my blog; I want my posts to please my followers, and I want them to comment. And then when they don't comment I get discouraged. This is wrong of me because I should not care about how much others enjoy my posts but I should care about how much God likes my posts!
 I just thought that I would share with you all about what's on my mind =) Hope you all have a great week end!

What do you care about in blogging? Having tons of followers; or following God by writing posts pleasing to him?

Words of Wisdom #2

OK, time to do another word of wisdom link-up =D I hope that some of you enter this time! 
but anyway this is what you do is...
1)Choose a picture of a quote that inspires you; either on Pinterest, Google, or just make up one yourself.
2) Take that quote, post it on your blog & then do a post about what that quote means to you in your life.
  3) Take the above photo and put it on your blog post with a link back to this post.

Have fun =)


 Be careful with your words 

Words

The above quote is so true and powerful. Words have the power to do more damage then almost any other thing! Words hurt, and they are hard to heal. Many people use their words as a weapon but we need to use our words as healing. We should ALWAYS speak kindly. We need to watch our words; we need to think before we speak. Because what we say can not be taken back.The words you say can either build up or break down. What comes out of your mouth? Do you say kind encouraging words, or are you impatient, cruel, and mean? I know that I personaly struggle with ' thinking before I speak" I am usually a loud mouth and I have trouble keeping my mouth closed. 
   The things I regret most in my life is probably the words that I have said to my friends, & family. When I get angry I tend to say things I don't mean. I am trying to work on " thinking before I speak" and I am also trying to be more of an encouragement to the people around me. 
   Have you ever been hurt by someone's harsh words? I know that you probably have; I think that everyone has at one time been hurt by someone's words. But the true question is- How did you deal with it? Did you get angry and say something mean back? did you hold bitterness against that person? When we are hurt by someone's elses words we should never hold bitterness towars them. The right way to deal with it would be by going up to that person and tell them that they hurt you. Many times peaople do not know when they have insulted or affended others.
  I am going to try this week to be kinder in my words to the people around me. Because words mean a lot; they can be used as a tool for kindness, or for a weapon of cruelty. Be wise with your words. Encourage others; sometimes a tiny bit of kindness can go a long way!


~ Words can be used for HEALING; but they can also be used to HURT. decide what you are going to use your words for ~
