Praising God is such an amazing, beautiful thing.

abbylira:

When you’re afraid, begin to exalt God. Remind yourself how much bigger He is than what you fear.

When you feel alone, exalt Him. Remind yourself that He is ever-present. Always near.

When you are sick, exalt Him. Remind yourself that He is a Healer. He heals. He answers. He is God. He is able. He is for you.

Avoiding cooking dinner and desperately wanting to go get a Dairy Queen blizzard in a waffle cone…


I got two new books to read, a free iced coffee and a free doughnut. The coffee I was expecting, the doughnut? Not so much. :) Small victory <3


How I feel about actually working on my second draft and getting responses to emails - winning!

If people knew your testimony, they would understand your PRAISE! People can argue with you about the bible all day or if God is even real, but NOBODY can argue about what God has done in your life! It’s personal!! God is up to something GOOD! Look for it!!

Freedom in Christ: Spring Break 2013

Every Spring Break, I go on tour with my Gospel Choir, the Elon University Gospel Choir. We are not just a choir, we are a family. This year was amazing! Service was very impacting. We saw the difference we made and it was very powerful to know that we could actually make a difference; even if it was just as small as feeding someone or cleaning up a garden or helping build a church. Service was very eye-opening. There are a lot of homeless people in the world, not just in Atlanta. We pass by them daily. Most of them just want something to eat and to be on their way. Some just want to talk. I want to help out the homeless while I finish out the rest of my education at school and wherever I go on to after graduation. There is still a lot of work to be done in the Lower Ninth Ward. Houses are still damaged from Hurricane Katrina. We learned a lot from Vincent, a man who works with Sustain the Nine. If you ever go to New Orleans, go work with Sustain the Nine! www.sustainthenine.org. While The Feed the Homeless Tour is still in Atlanta, go work with them! They are on Facebook. 

God is really amazing. He gave me a theme to live out and learn about during tour before Spring Break started: freedom. The theme reappeared in the churches we performed and in the Bible study we had. God gave me a poem about freedom and I got the opportunity to perform it. We already have the free will to live how we want. We have the freedom to live for Christ because He died for us. We are righteous because He submitted His life to God on Good Friday and rose on Easter Sunday. I’m learning to trust God more to enjoy this freedom in Christ. No more fear, no more worries. It’s exciting and terrifying. 

I’m going to have a fun post about Spring Break as well. I have to share the fun moments too!
