#StickWithIt When God Is Speaking and You Feel Like Quitting

Boy oh boy. I knew this study was going to be a challenge in its content, not necessarily in its requirements and now I have hit that point. Here I am in chapter 5 and I haven't even touched chapter 6 yet though again, like week after week this study is speaking to everything going on in my life. I had no idea which topic to write on this week, but then it kinda just fell in my lap after what I went through this week. Chapter 5 spoke about naysayers. I am all too familiar with them. I recently came across some this week. I am such a person who just wants to be loved and ACCEPTED. I hate REJECTION. Especially from people I call friends and people I love who say they love me.

Our Dreams>God's Will

For my regular followers, I am participating in an online Bible/book study with a weekly blog hop for Proverbs 31 Ministries. The book that is touching over 22,000 women from 120 countries is "What Happens When Women Say Yes to God" by Lysa TerKeurst. If you'd like to join and participate with me you can click this link When Women Say Yes to God. Blog Hop . Below is an assignment post. :) I kept it nice and short since there are so many to read! I feel I am being abit redundant by picking the same blog subject twice in a row, but my life is following a theme and with me still being young and not having as much experience as other ladies in this study, this is what I felt like writing to. I hope to add a little humor into a difficult day the one who reads this may be having. Humor is one of my communication languages. =D So here we go! You can have your whole life planned out. Who you will marry:     What your wedding will be like: what your li

#YES TO GOD- When God says, "LET GO!"

For my regular followers, I had participated in an online Bible/book study with a weekly blog hop for Proverbs 31 Ministries. The book that is touching over 22,000 women from 120 countries is "What Happens When Women Say Yes to God" by Lysa TerKeurst. Below is an assignment post. :) I kept it nice and short since there are so many to read! I'm sure many of us can relate to "losing" something in our lives. Whether it be a favorite hobby, a relationship, a favorite job or car. The possibilities are endless.  I chose this topic because of its very title. When this study came in my email I felt that "tug" in my heart to sign up for this one. I ordered the book, downloaded it on my ipad, and took a deep breath as the first few emails leading up to it poured in. Ironically, as I was waiting for it to start, God was already aligning me to say YES to Him.  Six months ago, as of this coming Friday, a relationship entered my life. One that I was
