I walked out of my last class this morning and was pleasantly surprised by what I found outside...I walked out of the building and it was pouring down rain! While everyone else stayed inside and under the covering outside the building, I fearlessly and happily walked out into it. They all seemed to be thinking that they're too good to get wet :P but in my opinion, any type of rain in South Texas is a miracle sent straight from God! Although I was getting soaked, I was thanking Him as I walked along. I love the rain, it's so beautiful. Take the time to thank God for the small things that people tend to take for granted from day to day.
Lord, I come thirsty and hungry for more of You.
I want to drink from the cup of Your hand
to receive Your loving kindness
amazing love of Your work You did upon the cross
and in Your glorious resurrection.
My sins are erased from my mind
and I am healed by the stripes upon Your back,
Jesus. I receive Your love
and forgiveness that’s empowered
by Your holy Spirit that I walk in Your light
and in Your power, totally consumed by You
from the inside of my heart and soul
to the very outside of my being.
For nothing in this world can harm me.
I am Yours.
Nothing comes to me that hasn’t passed through You,
o God. Your love surrounds me
and stirs up the flame within to praise
and glorify You all my days. Jesus,
You are the ONETHING I AM pursuing
from now on everything and everyone else becomes after You.
I seek You first
and every other piece will fall
into place for the glory and honor and praise of You.

January 2009 - Actually I would have to say back in November but I will just start here. My Dad was killed on Jan.21,2009... exactly one week before I turned 18. Due to somebody's ignorance to drink and drive. I fell apart completely. I was beyond mad at God, I didn't understand How he could love someone and provide the desires of their heart and yet take away the one thing they had ever wanted in life! I just couldn't put the pieces together. My relationship with Christ went from AMAZING! to Crap real quick!
