Happy New Year 2019 Here We Come

Hello, Everyone, And Happy New Year!!  What does New Years Eve mean to you believers? Why is there even such a thing? It's not all about the ball dropping or New Years Eve parties, or staying up till med night kissing your girlfriend or boyfriend, Or going out to some bar gettting drunk like a hourse. New Years Eve is much more then that. New Years Eve is a time to reflect on what has happend in the past year or what God has done in your life. Philippines 3:12-15  Not that I have already obtained this or am already prefect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me His own. Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own but His. Forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Let thoese of us who are manture think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, palns to prosper you and  not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. This year as I look back so many things happend to me, I was hurting, I was sad, I was sacred, I was in fear that something bad should happen to me. There were so many deaths in our family. My baby borthers Ezekiel, and Zechariah, died I didn't even get to meet them I was so sad and upset that God had to take them away, but you know what I know now that they are in a better place. My Aunt Erin, and great Uncle Jack Died, Now my Dad has been fighting cancer this past summer and is still fighting cancer. But you know what through all the awful times, through the pain, through the hurt and through the fear, God has been so faithful and just He is a just God and is always here for us when we need him most. I pray that this year is a better year for all of us.🙏 Good bye 2018! And Hello 2019! I am so ready for this year to be better by God's grace. Happy New Year once again.

Bible Journaling : how to get the most out of your Bible Study

Heyyy Guys!  I'm Janelle from  The Ramblings of a Bookworm and I'm supper excited to be able to have the chance to share some thought on here... but first let me tell you a little bit about myself! I blog about life. Books. And of that which I know of. I am a storyteller. Anne Shirley is a kindred spirit of mine. I read, perhaps too much, but that can't be helped. It's probably not super healthy, but hey, you make time for the things you love.. right? I live in Up State NY where its winter most of the year round (kidding... kind of)     love watermelon. I read books like there going out of style. I have a dream coffee shop on Pinterest. Family is goal. God is best. Friends are fantastic. i live in a state of summer. Shoes and I don't really get along. i write stories. history addict. i love exploring. some times my words are so random that no knows what I'm talking about. Also home schooled.  ANYWAYS enough about me. lets move on to the real subject.

Live Life Unedited.

Hey guys! :D For those of you who don't know me, I'm Faith and I blog over at Stories by Firefly and Chosen Vessels. I'm so excited to be joining this blog and these lovely young ladies. 

We edit things, don't we? Maybe you don't that much—or maybe you've just never thought of it this way before—but I realized recently that I edit a lot of things.

Books, stories, blog posts, emails, text messages, social media posts...and the list goes on.

And in a way that's good, really good. When we are angry, upset, or hurt, we should be careful what we say and take time to work through our feelings before we spout off something hurtful. (Ranting on social media is rarely a good idea. *wink*)

But what about any other time? What about when we retract something, click that backspace key and remove our personality?

Are we bettering the original? Improving ourselves and our life stories? Or are we telling ourselves it's not right, it's not good enough, it just doesn…

Don't Be Afraid to Stand Out

In our culture, there seems to be a lot of pressure to conform. You know, to fit in with everyone you're friends with, and only do what is 'culturally acceptable'.

I find that there's a lot of pressure (shall we call it peer pressure?), especially during the teen years. There's pressure to fit in - by getting into the cliques, by wearing "cool" clothes, and just by generally blending in with everyone around us.

We want to be liked by our peers, and there's nothing wrong with that.

But I'm here today to tell you: You don't have to conform. You don't have to be like everyone around you. You don't have to be the teenager who rebels, the guy who sleeps around, or the girl who goes to every single party. You don't have to be popular to be loved.

Because that's what the culture says is cool. That's what the world around us is doing.

You can rise above that. You can be so much more. Don't listen to what the world says about y…
