Let The Light Shine

Month: June 2014

God Sharing with Me?!

WOW…Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness.(Gen. 1:3-4) There really aren’t words to describe the awesomeness that I was able to experience last night. God took me […]

Out of the Pit

Do you ever wake up feeling like you are being attacked from all sides? Like you just can’t win no matter what you try to do? Well that is exactly how I have felt the last 2 days. I have felt Satan coming at me […]

The new Journey God has me on

A couple of days ago I brought it to the attention of my friend J- that I was THINKING about starting a YouTube Channel to sort of go with my new blog. This is something that I have been thinking about for a long time, but only shared it one other time with a friend almost in passing. I honestly thought “What the heck would I put out on the internet like that? I would love to but I just don’t have anything to say really.” Well God had other plans. I am really glad He put this on my heart all those months ago so, at least for me, it wouldn’t seem too strange.

The conversation was really simple, I asked her to pray for me, she said she would and THEN asked what about (I love how people do that…“Yes I will, what about exactly?”) So I told her that I was thinking about starting a channel up and the reason why. The reason why is this: I feel that God has called me stand and proclaim His name as loudly as I can, for about the last 10 years or so I felt it was through TV/Movies/the Theater and I still think that will happen but for now I think that I should be doing it on a smaller scale so that God can move me up. As I was saying all this to her she simply asked me “Why aren’t you starting now?” I was scared…at that moment we prayed about it and I felt this weight kind of lift off my shoulders…why was I waiting? God calls us to go and do…So what did I do? I threw my legs over the side of the boat…Now if I sink or walk all depends on if I keep my eyes on Christ or not and I understand that. But I am feeling amazing right now. He is going to use this in some awesome way, even if it only reaches ONE PERSON, that is one more person for the Kingdom!!

Join me on this crazy journey that God has me on and see where He is going to go with this!!!

“If You Want To Walk On Water, You’ve Got To Get Out Of The Boat” One of the many books I am reading right now…

Over the past few weeks of being down here in Mesa I have been reading a book with my friend J-, called If You Want To Walk On Water, You’ve Got To Get Out Of The Boat, by John Ortberg. Each week she and I […]

Money, Money, Money

I realized something, that praying over your finances is not a bad thing, it is a great thing but what really needs to be prayed about is your heart towards your finances. Over the past few years I have come to know the reality of […]

Let’s Start

From the beginning is the best place to start I would have to say. I came to know Christ when I was a little girl. I grew up with a mom who went to Catholic church and a dad who didn’t really know God. When I was 12 my parents decided to split up and that was around the time my dad actually started going to church (I know…it didn’t work). When I was 13 it was official, the divorce happened just like it did in so many families around the country.

I started to go to church with my dad and brother at the time and really started to come to know God, or at least I thought I did. I received The Lord and was baptized into a non-denominational church and started saying I was a Christian. As the years went on that was harder and harder. At 15 my dad was remarried and at 16 I moved in with my mom and step-dad in New Jersey. I wanted to go to church but didn’t want to go to a Catholic church and my step-dads family were Baptist, I didn’t really fit in there that much either. I did find a church eventually and really felt it was right.

At 18 after graduating I sort of fell away from the church, I knew who God was, I wasn’t going to fully throw all that away but I wanted to live my life the way I wanted and honestly didn’t have someone there pushing me in the church door direction. Between 18 and about 20 I allowed my life to spin out of control (more on that at a later time) and it was scary. Just before I turned 20 I found myself back at God’s feet and knew that was were I was supposed to be. I rededicated my life to Him and that was when things started falling into place.

When I was 21 I joined the Air Force and moved to Minot, ND…(So exciting I know, at the time there were only about 24,000 people in that town). I met my now husband and have been on a growing path ever since. Have I taken the right road, the God road every time? NO WAY, but what I have learned is many important lessons along the way and that is what this Blog is all about, the lessons that I have learned both in the past and the ones that I am learning right now. I am excited to see what God has for me in the future…It is going to be a wild ride but since He is the one controlling this I know it is right!!
