I am a Christian


When I say that "I am a Christian" I am not shouting that "I am clean living" I am whispering I was lost but now I'm found and forgiven.

When I say that "I am a Christian" I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ as my guide.

When I say that "I am a Christian" I'm not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I am weak and need his strength to carry on.

When I say that "I am a Christian" I'm not bragging of success. I am admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say that "I am a Christian" I am not clamming to be perfect. My flaws are too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say that "I am a Christian" I still feel pain. I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon his name.

When I say that "I am a Christian" I'm not holier than thou. I'm just a simple sinner who received God's grace somehow!"

My Special Friend


The last post I published was about friendship. I truly believe friendship is a wonderful gift from God, that we should all love, and cherish.  But I also believe that friends come and go in different seasons in our lives. That is a sad thing, having to lose a friend you loved so dearly. We don't know exactly why God brings friends into our lives and then takes them out. His word says though in Romans 8:28 "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose." But I know one friend who will never leave me, never gossip, never want to bring any harm, and will always love me. That special friend, is Jesus Christ. His word says that If we put our faith in him, he will never leave us. Joshua 1:9 "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” The Lord will always be loving, always be forgiving, always be kind, always be loyal, and will always be trustworthy. I am so thankful and grateful for the Lord and his love he has for me.

What Is a Friend?


A friend is someone who is concerned with
                   everything you do.
 A friend is someone to call upon during good
                      and bad times.
A friend is someone who understands
                    whatever you do.
A friend is someone who tell you the truth
                       about yourself.
A friend is someone who knows what you are
                       going through.
A friend is someone who does not compete
                          with you.
A friend is someone who is genuinely happy
              for you when things go well.
A friend is someone who tries to cheer you up
               when things don't go well.
A friend is an extension of yourself without
              which you are not complete.
            Thank you for being my friend.

Friends are truly a blessing in my life. Without my friends I don't know what I'd do. They bring me joy, laughter, and happiness. I know that if I ever needed anything they would be there for me whether it is during good or bad times. The poem up above covers what true friendship is all about. Here is another quote I absolutely love. "A friend is someone who knows all about you, but loves you anyway." I strive to be a loyal, and honest friend. Because with out honesty, and loyalty there is no foundation for a friendship .A friendship cannot be built on lies and gossiping. its about being there for each other, speaking kindly of one another, but most of all... LOVE. Remember to be thankful for your friend that the Lord has placed in your life. <3

Random Bible Verses to Remember


Right now I have been quoting scripture in my mind when I need it the most in certain situations.
I thought I'd share with you some of the verses I've been reminding myself. And who knows I might write a bible study on each bible verse! Ha-ha.

~ Matthew 6:34 "Do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of it's own."

~Psalm 121:7-8 "The LORD will keep you from all harm he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore."

~Psalm 121:2 "My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth."

~Proverbs 31:10 "A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies."

Feel like Giving Up?


Do you ever feel like giving up? Your so upset or down about something and you don't know how to fix the problem? Ever feel too stressed about something that suddenly you don't care about the ending you just want it to be over? I know I have been down that road many times. Giving up, and quitting is not very rewarding. I find myself being more upset and unsatisfied with myself when I quit, rather than finishing and accomplishing something. Whether its with school, work, chores, sports, instruments, or with friends and family. James 1:4 "Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." Always wanting to take the easy road instead of working hard at something because your afraid to try! So today I want to encourage you all to not quit...to keep going and giving it your all. And remember that in the end you will feel so much better knowing that all your hard work paid off. Rather than feeling discontent and full of regret.

Homemade Pizza


Is there anything better than homemade pizza? Well, then i have the perfect recipe for you! It's super easy, and absolutely delicious. Have fun, and be creative.

Water 1-1/2 cup
Olive Oil 1-1/2 Tbsp
Sugar 1-1/2 Tbsp
Salt 1-1/2 tsp
Bread Flour 3-3/4 cups
Active Dry Yeast 1-1/2 tsp
For the sauce we used basil tomato, but you can use any kind you want.
The cheese we used was cheddar, and Parmesan...(:

Pre heat the oven to 400. Pour all these ingredients in order inside your bread machine. This will take two hours to complete the dough. Next take it out and cut it into four equal pieces. Then let it cool in the fridge. Later take out piece, and start rolling the dough. Once you have a big enough size spread olive oil over the dough, along with the sauce and cheese. Place it in the oven for 11-15 minutes.
