All you need is Love.

GUYS GUYS GUYS GUYS GUYS GUYS! ok now that I have your attention, IM GOING BACK TO HAITI! God is so faithful and oh so good! Ever since I left haiti, ever since that plane in Port-au-Prince took me back to America, I prayed SO hard, for God to allow me to be a part of His marvelous works in Haiti. There was no answer for a long time, there was so much uncertainty, going back to Haiti seemed nothing but a dream. However, I continued praying.

There was a time where I had to re-evaluate my heart, why Haiti? why do I want to go? Is it because I simply missed the kids? I didn't think that was a good enough reason. I am not a teacher, a nurse, a sunday school teacher...etc..none of those. I didn't have much to offer...or so I thought. I prayed. I wanted to go with a purpose, I wanted to go to glorify God. God in His amazing grace revealed to me that all I have to offer is LOVE. I didni't have to be good at something, nor be something, I just need to be God's instrument, I just need to LOVE. Love the people of Haiti.

Later on as I continued to pray, God again, revealed to me, that I need to show love not just to the people of Haiti, but here. Even though we American's have everything we can possibly imagine, we lack the most amazing thing and that is JESUS. At work, at school, at home, at the grocery store-SHOW LOVE. Always!

In January I pursued the dream of mine...I contact Child Hope, and after a few minor details...I AM GOING BACK TO HAITI! now I'm just wishing my life away. I absolutely can't wait to see what God does, and I can't wait to be God's insturment.

Also, one more exciting news. Who am I go with? MY BEST FRIEND. how cool is that? We are always together, we went to haiti together last year, and God put us together again. I am looking forward to spending 2 weeks with my best friend and seeing how the Lord will deepen our friendship. <3

I would appreciate your prayers!

Much LOVE and GRACE =)

I'm not proverbs thirty one

Have you ever read Proverbs 31? 

It describes a woman who is intimidating to me, yet I aspire to be. If you ever have time, read the chapter, if not, I'll break it down for you. In this chapter King Lemuel meaning "devoted to God" wrote a passage that was almost a perfect description of his mother, some say he was inspired by her wisdom. His mother, Bathsheba made her wisdom very evident when she was basically telling her son "not to fall into the trap of immorality, chasing after women will sap a king's strength. (Proverbs 31:3) I can only draw my own assumptions that Lemuel was inspired by that saying and wrote up a whole chapter based on what a woman of virtue should look like. I won't quote the chapter in this blog, although I must have read it three or four times tonight, and had it basically memorized at some point in high school, however I'll attempt to simplify with my such minuscule concoction of words.  

So, what is a Proverbs 31 woman?

It's real

Depression- the word is either used too much or not enough. 

Upon hearing that someone may be depressed, some just look the other way as if it's not real, as if it's a trend or not as bad as the guy next door. Some may treat it with medication, therapy, and may even suggest medidation. 

I heard a statistic from 2013, that 437 children die from cancer, that is one too many, and 4,600 individuals ages 10-24 will take their own lives. I am one hundred percent positive the numbers have increased since, sadly. So. Are we judging too quickly when some one may be depressed? Are we shrugging it off as if it's not a thing. Let me tell you something...

Unless you have mentally experienced the battles a depressed person fights- you have no say. Unless you have felt your own heart beat fasten it's pace because your lungs are trying to grasp for air due to heavy tear flow that became silent- you can not point fingers. Unless you felt the utter darkness that surrounds the mind and the …

what is seen is temporary

the phrase I have tattooed on my forearm states "this too shall pass..." 

lately I'm realizing that the phrase holds multiple meanings. this. what is "this" is it eluding to? here's my faulty conclusion...

this. any state of emotion, life situations, adversities, joys, sadness, pains, tragedies...this will pass. so that leads to this- whatever joys we experience, they will soon pass, what ever pains we experience, they will also pass, the most painful "this too shall pass" includes the connections we make, the relationships we spend our time building, the people...they pass. They pass right out of our lives. You can look at someone and physically see them, all the while realizing the person they were before has "passed", the essence of their being was taken along with their "passing." 

"this too shall pass." 


As contradicting as it is, the permanent tattoo on my forearm indicates how temporary things are in this life. 

Upo…
