So many times I feel so unlovable. I feel so unworthy of everything I have. To think that someone (God) loved me so much, in spite of my sins, in spite of the fact that I would turn away from him for a time; he loved me (and you) so much that He sent His one and only Son to be beaten, mocked, embarrassed and nailed to a cross to save me. To save all of us! He even loves those who openly denounce God and those who worship Satan. God loves them anyway. No matter what we’ve done or where we have been, He Loves Us!
Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven”. –Luke 7:48 NIV
To see where He brought me from….well….WOW! He took everything I was, and made me everything I am!
Oh Holy God, I love you so much! I cannot even imagine how it felt to see your son go through all the torture he endured to save a lost world. It breaks my heart to remember the times I’ve gone astray knowing what I know and being taught what I have all my life. Lord, I never want to go there again. I am here Lord to give you my all! I’m here Lord to worship you with my whole heart. You are so wonderful to me God. Help me Lord, to be a light, to lead others to you God. I want to be that light in this dark world. Thank you God; for your precious Holy Spirit who is my Comforter. I love to bask in your presence and to feel you breathing on me. Help me to always be sensitive to your leading.

I just want to say that I love the Lord. I'm so thankful for all He has done for me and my family! He has always been with me and I know will always be there. I'm thankful for a Christian family.
I'm thankful for all of you that have been sending me notes and comments. I really appreciate your thoughts and prayers. Please know that I am praying for all of you as well.

Sometimes we need to take a step back and hush up so that the Lord can be heard. That's exactly what I have been doing over the past month or so. I have not logged on to facebook, email, or blogger in over a month, and let me tell you, I have really been blessed by withdrawing myself and spending more quiet time in prayer and meditation.
To all of you who have posted comments of love, concern, and support, THANK YOU! I love each and everyone of you. Thank you for your prayers. The Lord is working, and I'm growing.

Okay...I'm going to be completely and totally honest. I'm struggling. I'm struggling spiritually and emotionally.
Why is it so hard for us to admit to others when we struggle? Isn't that why we have Christian friends?? So that when we are at our low points in life and we just need a little help we have someone we can talk to and pray with?!?!
I know the answer for me. Its a simple five letter word. Pride. Okay April....get a grip....you know what the bible says....you know what you have to do. Why does it seem so difficult?!?!
I just want Jesus. That's all I want. Jesus to wrap His arms around me and wipe my tears and lift me up. HELLO!!!... I have to LET him. I can WANT all day long but until I actually surrender myself and LET Him have HIS way I'll be stuck in a rut, all by myself.
I was watching a video clip of Joyce Meyer today and something she said really stuck out to me and I'd like to share it.:
Many times we pray for God to perform a miracle. A miracle of healing, financial relief, family and friend troubles, etc. etc. Most often, God will not perform this great miracle. He wants us to take His hand and walk through the valley with Him and let Him teach us and show us things we would never learn if we were just given instant relief.
This definitely got my attention. It changed my attitude and my way of thinking. I want to learn something through all of this Lord. Show me. I'm ready to follow you through this valley.

Sometimes things happen, situations change, or we are made to go in a different direction. We wonder, “Why God?”. It seems like things are going great! There are improvements being made, new things introduced, and you feel like you are on the right track. Yet, one small thing; A phone call, an E-mail, etc. changes EVERYTHING (or so it seems).
Doubt creeps in. We start evaluating everything and everyone, including ourselves. We ask “What have I done wrong?” More often than not, the answer is “nothing”. There is just a new path to be taken. IT WILL BE OKAY! You are still God’s child. He still loves you. He is still going to use you. He’s not finished with you.
It’s in these times we should focus on getting closer to Jesus. Check our priorities. Pray more, fast more, dig into the Word more. And WORSHIP more.
I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Genesis 9:13 NIV
For every storm, there will be a rainbow. You may not always see it…but its there.

Your love amazes me. Your love amazes me.
It’s more than I could ever conceive
Your love amazes me.
It’s higher than the mountains
And it’s deeper than the ocean
It’s farther than the East is from the West
That’s Your love for me
Your love amazes me. Your love amazes me
It’s more than I could ever conceive
Your love amazes me.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 1 John 4:9
