Personal Update: Agent SL

“This is Agent Snow Leopard, do you copy?”

“KKKKkkkkk!! Over!”

Fellow agents of the Jesus: I have donated and cleaned out a vast majority of my room. I have a few boxes of books that were my grandmother’s, in which I had struggled parting ways with, that are officially ready to be dropped off at the living center she resided in before her death. Many pieces of furniture and clothes have been removed from my house. The less I have, the fuller I feel. This is only our temporary home! And I will spend my future traveling, so material thing need to lose their value in my life!

Secondly, I have failed at praying 4 psalms each in the morning, afternoon and evening. BUT. I will try again.

Then there was of course the 12 hour prayer. I am planning this event for a few weeks from now since my schedule is full of camping trips and Hawaii, to see my brother who is serving in the army. I miss my brother so much. I have however done a 2 hour prayer last week and I am so excited to crank it to 12.

Alas, Texas is getting closer and my training for becoming a full time missionary is quickly transforming into a reality. I am so nervous and excited! I will however miss my friends. I actually wrote 30 letters and mailed them to people who have had such an enormous effect on my life up to this point. There’s some words of affirmation flying around! Haha Get filled up by God and release it into the world around you!

Man, my leg and abs are sore from working out. I want to be in top condition so my body won’t slow me down in my days of serving. I have been spending lots of time outside and out of the air conditioning because I know I need to get used to no coolant eventually.

All for His glory.

Love you all! Be blessed!

Dry Cappuccino

God has placed you into every part of your life for a reason! Minister to those around you. Make yourself vulnerable and share your story. Tell someone today what God has done in your life. My life isn’t about me, just as yours has nothing to do with you. Love those around you! Everyone is hurting and has a past that needs the healing power of Christ. Pray for God to open Your eyes to that suffering! Quit praying for His blessings on YOUR life and start praying for Him to make you a blessing in someone else’s life! Philippians 2:3-5 says, “don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.” Choose to reflect on Gods love everyday! I constantly get wrapped up in my own life. I drink coffee, sit in air conditioning, sleep on a very nice bed, eat warm filling meals; my life is so comfortable. We weren’t called to live comfortably! When we are comfortable we get selfish and lazy, thinking of our desires and needs, and forgetting about the rest of the world. Maybe we have too much. Maybe we need to just give away a little. And a little more. And a little more. And more still! I think we’d be surprised at how much we can ‘survive’ with. How much less can we have and still be thriving? If you confess with your mouth that God is all you need, would you be willing to prove it? And if you claim to be a follower of Jesus, who fed the poor, healed the sick, clothed the needy and cast out demons, would you be willing to live like Him like you you say you do? Because I don’t think Jesus only attended church, listened to 91.3 and had good Christian friends. Who would He have helped if He kept to Himself, concerned with only His salvation? Brothers and sisters this is a matter of life and death! Can we stop treating it so lightly? Love someone today. Just do something so full of genuine love that the world points to Jesus, knowing His hand was in it.

Seek God First

Too often we spend all of our time seeking God for answers to our problems when what we should be doing is just seeking God.

Tremble

@Baffers28: My tender heart is Yours alone, I come trembling at the thrown. A sinner guilty; tear stained face, standing only thanks to Grace.

Joyce Meyer conference, ya dig??

So if you haven’t heard the Joyce Meyer conference is a Resurrection Life Church in Grandville, MI all week! Friday 10am and 7pm; Saturday 10am! I was there last night and loved it. Absolutely wonderful. Fo serious. And for some reason there was bananas everywhere for sale. Which excited me.

Panting For God

http://bible.us/97/PSA42.1.MSG A white-tailed deer drinks from the creek; I want to drink God, deep draughts of God. I’m thirsty for God-alive. I wonder, “Will I ever make it— arrive and drink in God’s presence?” I’m on a diet of tears— tears for breakfast, tears for supper. All day long people knock at my door, Pestering, “Where is this God of yours?”

“Abba, cleanse me of anything that breaks Your heart! Empty my head of my own selfish, confused, and perverse thoughts and fill it with Your promises, words of affirmation and encouragement! Thank you for loving me! Fill me Holy Spirit! And forgive me for all my sinful habits, and heal me from them, Jesus. Amen!”

“Abba, cleanse …

If you have never heard of Patricia King I highly suggest that you start watching some of her teachings. She has such a fierce heart for God and is very much prophetic!

Black Coffee

I haven’t been using much electronics in the past week or so. Sorry for the lack of updates! I have been spending a lot of quality time with my family, boating, fishing, reading and cooking, along with seeking God’s heart to new extremes. AND I GOT ACCEPTED INTO CFNI (Christ For the Nations Institute)!!

Since my note of acceptance God has placed three things on my heart. 1. To donate everything in my bedroom that will not fit in my 5 pc suitcase kit that will be going to Dallas, TX with me. Including my Grandma’s old books, which will be difficult for me, and a good deal of clothes and shoes.. I’m a girl. What can I say? &2. After reading through “Living A Year Like Jesus” by Ed Dobson, I will begin praying 4 Psalms in the morning, afternoon and evening, every single day. Along with reading through the Gospel every month. How can I be a Jesus follower and not know every detail of the gospel? I need to start “canning up peaches!” A Marilyn Hickey phrase meaning that when you read the bible, do devotions, go to church, etc, you are storing up information so you can “open up the jar” at anytime and share what you’ve learned at God’s perfect timing! &3. Become an ultimate prayer warrior. I am taking my prayer life to a new extreme. I have been challenged to a “12 Hours of Prayer” in which one simply prays for 12 hours straight, fasting, meditating, reading God’s word and praying.

I am so excited to grow closer to God during these 3 months before I leave for college!

I encourage others to join me in these challenges as well!Image
