So...pray for me?

We are having a youth service tomorrow with the church in Mannheim. & I was asked to lead the song service. Can you believe that?! I'm a little nervous, actually very scared (lol) even though it won't be that many people. & I only had about a weeks notice. How does James (Wilder) do it? Geezzzzz. Not to mention I've never done anything like this before. It might not seem like a big deal to everyone else, but for a girl who only sings in the shower, & in church (as part of the congregation), it's pretty intimidating. So pray that tomorrow I won't make everyone's ears bleed.

Just keep praying, & believing...

Wow, so everyone wants to be teen parents these days!
It's almost like they're getting preggers on purpose...and a lot of them are. For whatever reason, I have no idea. Which means we need to pray for OUR generation now more than ever. It has become so twisted. There aren't enough young people that are on fire for God, too many of them let others tell them how to live their life, instead of STANDING UP FOR THEMSELVES. They use the excuse that "I chose this myself, I know what I'm doing." Well obviously not if you started going that way after hanging out with a certain crowd. It makes me sad that we as Christians are supposed to be influencing the world, not letting it influence us. Yea, it's hard because we live in it, but we are not OF it. To me, it is weakness if you let someone else pressure you into doing something you know you shouldn't. You should be a LEADER, not a follower. Your "friend" doesn't care about you at all. A real friend would never ask you to do something that will bring you down. There are so many people that I am praying hard for. Sometimes I don't want to, because their actions annoy me. But I know I have to. Not just for them to see the light, but for something to happen for them to see the light. A little bump in the right direction. & I'm not just talking about backsliders, I'm talking about young people within the church. They aren't serious enough. I'm not saying I'm perfect, Lord knows I need all the prayer I can get... & that's why I'm posting all of this. I know what I've been through, & I'm still going through...even now. But I don't mind the struggles. Without struggles, God can't work in us. In order for a miracle to happen, bad things must happen first. & God wants to bless us, but we don't believe we deserve it. & No one does, but yet there He is, BLESSING. We need to believe that He wants to bless us. & God cannot bless us beyond our ability to believe. Ohh Lord I can go on forever. Just be keeping me, & Germany in your prayers. God is doing marvelous things in our church, & I can't wait to see what He has in store!

Don't you just hate when you do something so sly...but you can't tell anyone?? That's how I'm feeling right now. I just did something very sneaky, so hopefully I won't have to wait that long before someone finds out. Okay, it's nothing bad...but it's not being expected, so it makes it even sly...er. Sorry if everyone is confused. I had to get this off my brain in SOME way.

Where Will You Turn?

You make one wrong decision that may change your life.

It's not the about decisions you've made, but what you do AFTER, & what you turn to. Are you going to turn to things of this world for a season of comfort, or are you going to get on your knees & turn to God?

It's funny how the devil can take something so small & put a microscope on it. It looks like the biggest log, when in reality, it's the smallest splinter. This week has been tough, & I was pretty discouraged. Then Bro. Wilkins preached last night & his message title was "Where Will You Turn?". David ordered that Joab be killed, & Joab ran for his life. He went into the house of God & grabbed the horns of the altar. I know that no matter what I do, I would rather die at the altar, than in the world.

Just an afterthought-
Don't you just love when something happens during the week that can get your spirit down, but when you go to church, the message is exactly what you need? I notice that whenever I miss church, something great happens. So next time you feel like missing church because you're tired after work, or don't "feel well", just know that you could be missing the very answer to your prayers. Church is 2 times a week, & for a couple hours at the most. How hard is it to just GO? Most of you already know this, but for me, it has been a learning experience.
