He used my son to comfort me.

Last week was a hard week for us.  I have had a couple of bad weeks in the past few months, but last week was possibly the hardest week.  I found myself, one evening sitting on my bed talking with God.  I said to Him, "God, whenever anyone needs someone to talk to, or is upset; I am there for them.  When someone needs advice; I am there.  When someone needs encouragement; I am there.  When someone needs prayer; I am there... but what happens when I am the one who needs advice, encouragement, and prayer.  Who will be there for me?"  I felt like that clown that made all the sad people laugh, but when the clown was sad no one was there to make him laugh.  

I was just sitting there in silence staring at the blank wall, when all the of the sudden I felt these small little arms wrap around me, and a sweet little voice that said "It's Otay, mama"  Yes that was enough to make me cry like a baby.  I'm not sure if Benjamin understood why I was crying, but he just held on to me until I finally calmed down. 

I understood that God was telling me, that I could go to Him, that He would be there for me whenever I need Him.  He used my son to comfort me, and to let me know that He is with me, and I was reminded of God's promise in ISAIAH 41:10...
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
    Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
    I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.

You know what, I'm ok now.  God knew what I needed.  He's amazing! 
I thank Benji for allowing himself to be used by God. 
 I know this little guy will a great man of God.

I have to admit, He may know something.

Would I ever take fashion advice from my husband?  no.  pft* what does he know.

Then the day came where I put something on, thinking that I was wearing something totally awesome, and he "kindly" (not so kindly)  suggested I not wear it like that... and after much hesitation, I obey.  So, all is well, until we leave.  I then start to doubt my decision, but it's too late, and no turning back. Oh well, I can blame him. It so happens I get many compliments that day. hmm.  Strange how that worked out, eh?

I guess he may know a little.

My booster shot

Hello there,

I have a little testimony to tell.  I should actually have said this in church this weekend but due to unforeseen circumstances (no one ever knows when a child will get sick), I wasn't able to go.  Well when we moved to this area, I thought that it would be easy-peasy to find a job, considering my work experience from the states.

Well my job search began, and the Lord knows that I took job
searching super serious.  Had a couple of interviews, that in my mind I nailed, yet still nothing.  I even went to a couple of job agencies, and still nothing.  I got to the point where I was willing to work anywhere.  No one called me, nothing, absolutely nothing.

I finally got a call from a little part time job, which I thank the Lord for.  It's not my ideal job but it's been good to me this far.  Any day I request with time for church events, they give me off.  Which is great b/c church takes priority over this job.

this experience has really encouraged me to take to another step toward my future. I know that it is my fault for not having continued my education after high-school but  it's not to late to do so.  I applied to college about 3 months ago, and I hadn't heard back. I waited patiently but after a while i started to feel like maybe I wasn't good enough.  The devil tried to discouraged me with feelings of worthlessness.  I will be honest, I battled with this, and it wasn't until I completely confessed to God in prayer, exactly how I felt that I began to feel better.

About to two weeks ago, I got my acceptance letter. finally. I will be starting in September. Only God knows the amount of things that ran through my mind during the waiting process. I fell like I have just received a booster shot of patience and trust in God, from God himself.  He's pretty awesome.

Anyway, that's what I wanted to share. Now, I'm off to a conference to worship the Lord!


 

When I bored, I take selfies, and then I go through them and delete them all. 
I kept these and decided that I needed to do something with them.
