Living by faith. Not just talking about it.

Having Faith is easy. Actually putting faith into action is a little more difficult.

I have dreamt since I was a little girl of working with animals. For some crazy reason never pursued it. I have now been presented with a huge opportunity to join a clinic in Springfield. Full, on the job training.I never thought I'd have such a great offer placed before me.

Looking back on my faith, 5+ years ago and how I didn't truly relying on God  has changed drastically. Now, by no means am I saying I have perfected my walk with God but I can honestly tell you that when I sat on my bed in tears knowing that "I couldn't" give my tithe because I thought I "don't think I can" make it until next payday but did it anyway, That He pulled through! Just in this past week He as amazed me with His wonderful works!

I am so stinking excited to start this new chapter in life! And thanking God for blessing my life.

If there is one thing I have learned most in my life is to never stop trusting, Never stop being faithful, and never stop giving God what's His.

Faith isn't the ability to believe long and far into the misty future.
     It's  simply taking God at His Word and taking the next step.

Our first embarkation

I love to travel. Seeing new things is so exciting. In March this year I started researching Cruise lines out of bordem. Than realized how cheap it really was. So, 7 months later here we are 3 days away from our very first embarkation. It doesn't even seem real at this point. We truly have all been blessed to be able to go on such an adventure that most people never will have the privilege to go on. In the last month I have seen God provide in so many ways for all four of us! I love the fact that I know without a doubt that I can rely on Him for everything!
For those left behind, please do not take our excitement as bragging or boosting. None of us never thought we'd be going on such a trip and this is all out of excitement and God blessing us beyond our belief.  We want you to share in our excitement with us!
The last thing I ask of all you readers is to keep us in your prayers. We are driving from Missouri to Miami, Florida......Close to a 24 hour trip one way! Most people think we are crazy, We can't wait to make memories!
Well, I've got packing to do and errands to run! Don't miss us to much! XO

enjoying my suspense novel

I've never been the type of person to fast forward to the end of the movie or read the last part of the book first. I enjoy the story and the journey it takes me on while getting to the best part, The Happy Ending.
Sometimes it feels as if my life is a series of suspense novels. You know the kind that leave you hanging at the end! In every book! In the mean time I will enjoy my suspense novel and pray for joy in life and for God to prepare me for the day he blows me away! :)

Becoming Fearless

I have lived a life in fear for the last 28 months. A couple months ago I start tossing some ideas around on how to get over the fear. I have avoided the obvious for some time now. But I've decided I am going to do it. I am going to skydive. It makes me excited and nervous and scared to death all at the same time. But I no longer want to let this fear of what happened consume my life and prevent me from doing what I have always wanted to do. I am going to face it straight on. I don't know when. But I am going to.

This is a short start to a blog but I plan to face several things and will continue to write on how it all goes!
