  1. Thanks for the comments, At this time, I am just praying God's will! I only want to be friends right now, and I am praying God's will in my life! His will comes first!
  2. A few names that I would like for my children are ( which I would like alot of children according to God's will) Girls 1.Colleen Grace ( Colleen is after one of the greatest role models that God put into my life. She was my former pastor's wife, and she taught me so many things, and she passed away in 06, and I would like to name my first girl after her, and grace is for because it took God's grace, and she went through many health problems, and my dad has many health problems, so I really would like the name Colleen Grace. 2. Hope ( Still debating on middle name) Boys 1. I always dreamed of my first boy being named after the man I marry... 2. Jason Matthew I really want to seach out names... I like names that are old, and also names that have a meaning! In Christ, Sadie. Phil.4:13
  3. Guidance From God's Hand By: Sadie Katharine _______ Verse 1 So many times I want to question why? There are so many things I can?t understand. But, As time passes by, I have learned to leave it in God?s hand. Chorus The hand of God is all I need, The grace that gets me through each day. The life that was shed, so I can be free, The hand that guides me in every way. The strength that He gives to me, He is there when I am need a friend. When you are discouraged, there will always be, Guidance from God?s hand. Verse 2 When trials come that you face, It seems like all you have done is tried. Just remember God?s hand of grace, The hand that never passes you by. Chorus The hand of God is all I need, The grace that gets me through each day. The life that was shed, so I can be free, The hand that guides me in every way. The strength that He gives to me, He is there when I am need a friend. When you are discouraged, there will always be, Guidance from God?s hand. I Just wrote this a cuople of mintues ago. I was thinking about how many times we stray away from God, and yet each day we have guidance from His hand. I know I have failed Him so many times in my own life, and yet He is always there with His hand! Love in Christ, Sadie. Phil.4;13
  4. Well I have a tune to it, however I have not put notes to it... In Christ, Sadie. Phil.4:13
  5. Well I did not have a job until I was 18 years, old, and I am nineteen now Turning 20 in May. I was in school, and I did alot of things with my church, so I chose not to get a job during school, and focused more on church and things. Since I have had a job, I have bought all of my needs like shampoo, make up, clothes, all of my own needs. First and foremost comes tithes out of the paycheck... And then my missions... Just a quick, thought, I think it is good to teach missions at an early age. Even if it is just one penny. I remember when I was little I did not have nothing to give, so I would give a penny each month. I think it is imperative to teach children about missions giving as well And then my needs, and put the rest up in saving. And having a few wants here and there. And helping out with groceries too. I would say as your teenager gets older 16,17,18 it would be good for them to start getting some independence and start paying for some of thier clothes and things. As well as saving. I think it is never too early to save. Because looking back when I first got a job, yeah I did waste some of my paychecks but that could have been towards a car, or some things. Also for me I learned my own lesson. What helps me I look at my paycheck, and look how much I have made for the whole year, and look how much is in my baking account. In Christ, Sadie Phil.4:13
  6. I just wrote this, it is not like a song song, but I just put a tune to it... I Like It The Old Fashioned Way By: Sadie Katharine ______ Verse 1 This world has nothing to offer me, Just a life of pain each day. Its filled sinful misery, That?s why I like the Old Fashioned way. Chorus I like it the Old Fashioned way, The old fashioned music and modesty I like it every day, Old Fashioned I will always be. And though this world may be against your stand, We have our Old King James Word each day, So just lift up your hands, And say I like it the Old Fashioned Way. Verse 2 and 3 The Old Fashion preaching, And shouting too. When the devils a creepin, You can always know what to do. Get in the Old Fashion Book, And start to read, If you take a look, You will believe. Chorus I like it the Old Fashioned way, The old fashioned music and modesty I like it every day, Old Fashioned I will always be. And though this world may be against your stand, We have our Old King James Word each day, So just lift up your hands, And say I like it the Old Fashioned Way.
  7. My Child, Just Be Still By: Sadie Katharine _________ Verse 1 So many times I?ve questioned of things I did not understand, Prayer after prayed I have prayed, But I must remember I am guided by God?s hand Though sometimes I struggle, I must be still let Him show me the way. Chorus He said my child just be still, Just rest in my arms today, I will show you my perfect will, My child, Just be still and pray. Verse 2 and Verse 3 Sometimes I am weak and the way seems long, Tears flow down my face, But to my eternal King I belong, He reaches out His hands of grace, At times it may seem like the way is dim, Sadness you may feel. But we must remember we can only make it through Him, He reaches out his arms, and sais child come to me and be still. Chorus He said my child just be still, Just rest in my arms today, I will show you my will, My child, Just be still and pray Tag. My child, Just be still and pray -------------------------------------------------------------
  8. A while back ago I did a post on Why Not Waiting? Well waiting is definately worth it. God has been working in my life, and I thank Him for it. About a month ago, this guy that I had known previously, that I had met two years earlier which he lives about an hour and a half away. I knew him because I went up to Bro. Tony Hutsons youth meeting in Tennessee with his church youth group. Well to get on with my story, he got my phone number and called me, and He came down on New Years Eve with his family and we stayed up until like 4 in the morning, and then they left. And then the next weekend he and his family came down to my church, and this past weekend, me and my friend ( his mom's friend too) drove up to thier house, he invited me to His dad's birthday party. Well we are talking, and not courting/dating yet, but we know we like eachother, we are just taking it slow! But I thank God for sending him in my life. We have the same convictions and beliefs and we both have the desire to be in the ministry. He is called to preach. In fact the first time he called me we talked on the phone for 3 hours, and he asked me my convictions, and beliefs. And right now I am praying God's will and seeking God's will on what He wants me to do for Him, as well I am praying about Michael, and His will, not mine! May His Will Be Done Love in Christb , Sadie. Phil.4:13
  9. I kind of dont' know where to start. I know I posted on the church forum, and God has given me a wonderful church to go to and has blessed it so much! Last night my pastor resigned my church but in God's will! He has been offered an assitant pastor at another church as well as a full tiem job with it. We have known and have prayed about this for quite a while, and for a couple of weeks my pastor was workign at both churches. I thank God for giving me a pastor who is dedicated and very sensitive to the Holy Spirit. I also understand that we all need to be in God's perfect will. I Pray that God's will be done, and I know that God will provide us with the man of God he has for us. And though it hurts to see my pastor and pastor's wife go, I pray that God's will be done in thier lives and love and support them. They have been such influential people in my lives!!! I have known them for about four years, and they really helped me through out my teenage years. I can name so many things where God has used them in my life. And my pastor's wife has taugt me so many things about being a pastor's wife. She has been a big role model of mine! And God places different people in our lives for a reason, but I just pray that God will have His will and His way! I wrote the two poems that I recently posted thinking about my pastor and my pastor's wife and our church. Our little disciples program sings a song called God has a bigger plan going on then what these little bitty eyes can see. And that is so true, He knows each step we take before we take it. He is there to guide us, and though sometimes we may not always understand, He has a bigger plan than we can ever imagine for ourselves. Just to keep trusting Him and staying faithful, and He will supply our every need, He will mend our broken heart, He will give us strength through the day. My life verse is Phil. 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. And that is so true! I just really would like yall to pray God's will be done through our church, and through all! Thank yall!! Love in Christ, Sadie. Phil.4:13 Offline
  10. Crucifixion Day By: Sadie Katharine _______ The blood ran down his face, The crown of Thorns placed upon His head, Giving all of His merciful grace That He would die and let me live instead. The tears, strife, and pain All that He went through. The crowd mocked His Holy name For He was King of the Jews. It was on Crucifixion Day That led me to the Cross of Calvary The One and Only way Our Saviour who hung on an Old Rugged Tree. My soul was set free, By our Lord, the only way. Washing my wretched sins by the Cross of Calvary I am only here, all because of Crucifixion Day The torment as He hung to die His beaten body worn and bruised. The laughter heard of the crowd passing by, No one cared, that He was wrongly accused. His precious body hanging on the cross, As His life began to drift away. Dying to save all of the lost, For it was all on Crucifixion Day It was on Crucifixion Day That led me to the Cross of Calvary The One and Only way Our Saviour who hung on an Old Rugged Tree. My soul was set free, By our Lord, the only way. Washing my wretched sins by the Cross of Calvary I am only here, all because of Crucifixion Day. Love in Christ, Sadie. Phil.4:13
  11. A Touch of God's Grace By: Sadie Katharine ______ The invitation song began to play, As tears streamed down her face. She wondered if her broken heart could be healed that day Just for a little touch of God?s grace. Her life had been in a raging sea. Tossed too and fro, She cried out Lord, here my plea To Calvary you did go. A touch of God?s grace, That?s all that I need. Coming before Him with praise Bowing down at His feet. A touch of His hand, Abounding in mine, Coming to the Great I Am, Forever to be thine. Just a touch of His mercy, Guiding us along life?s race. He is all we need and there will always be. A touch of God?s grace. Love in Christ, Sadie. Phil.4:13

  16. This post is kind of going to be long. I just want to give God all the glory and praise through all the sufferings. My dad has many health problems and lives in pain each and every day of his life. He started to really get sick when I was in middle school, and over the years it has gotten worse. Due to sickness, he had to stop working in 2002, and as I went through my last year of middle school, and early years of high school, I would often question why did he have to be sick? I did not understand, and to this day I will never understand what he goes through each day. There are many Wednesdays and Sundays my daddy can't make it to church due to his health, but each and every time he misses, he is there praying through it all. My daddy is a prayer warrior. He prays and praises God through each suffering moment that he goes through. Through all the tears, smiles, sun, and rain. Sometimes I find myself again not understanding why he goes through so much, and then I just stop and say thank you Lord for giving me a daddy who has taught me the right things, and has been a spiritual leader in our home, and a daddy here on this earth. So many kids, teenagers grow up with such wicked lifestyles and such broken homes, and God had grace on me! I was raised in a Christian home, not only a Christian house, but a Christian home. I have seen God use my dad so many times through his sickness, and my dad has been a blessing to so many people, including me, and I can just see God using and getting the glory! And I just want to thank God for all the sufferings that we go through. Praise Him through the good and bad! God is good, However God is God! There is nothing to little and nothing that he cannot handle! So each and every time a tribulation or trial comes along, I just want to stop and say Thank You Lord, instead of looking on what comes along, saying Thank You Lord just for being there! Love in Christ, Sadie. Phil.4:13
  17. Calling on His Name By: Sadie Katharine Vs. 1 A little house and a few pennies is all she had to own, Just trying to make it day by day. The wealth of this world, she never known, Oh but she knew how to pray. Chorus I don?t have silver, and I don?t have gold, I don?t have all the riches or fame. I don?t have much money, oh but how I have Jesus and His hand to hold I can always call on His name! Verse 2 Trusting Jesus with all that she had, Giving her last bit of pennies away He feels her with contentment and makes her heart glad His love is there each day. Chorus I don?t have silver, and I don?t have gold, I don?t have all the riches or fame. I don?t have much money, oh but how I have Jesus and His hand to hold I can always call on His name! Verse 3 She said I don?t have much to offer here, I don?t have all the wealth of this earth. Everything that have I have is from my Lord so near, For He gave me a salvation birth Chorus I don?t have silver, and I don?t have gold, I don?t have all the riches or fame. I don?t have much money, oh but how I have Jesus and His hand to hold I can always call on His name! Tag? I have Jesus and I can always call on His name. I just wrote that song. I may not have all the wealth of this world, but I have my Jesus!! Love in Christ, Sadie. Phil.4:13

Tag Wherever I am, there you are. ------------ I wrote this a couple of minutes ago.. and He is always there!!!!! Love in Christ, Sadie. Phil.4:13
  20. The Regret I will always have. I remember the time where I had everything I had ever hoped and dreamed of. Life was what you could call it as "perfect". I had a husband who gave me everything I could ever have imagined. I had more love for him than words could ever describe. Without him, I was incomplete. I married William when I was nineteen years old, knowing that we had different views of life. But, I had a love for him that was strong within me. I knew it was not going to be an easy road ahead. Willaim and I had one child together. Her name was Rose. We had a nice house, and an expensive car, and more money than I could dream of. The one thing that we did not have in common was religion. William was one of those so called ( Saved by the Blood) Christians who attended church reguraly and I did not believe in God or care anything about what anybody had to say about Him. During my teenage years, I was made to go to church, by my parents. They did not go, but wanted me to, which to me seemed like a a contradiction. I did, and there I met William. I had always hated church, and this God that they talk about. William and I started dating, and we later got married. Things changed after I got married. I no longer was made to go to church, and .I didn't. God was nothing more than just a made up story that had been passed on and on. William went to church faithfully, even though I would never attend. He would tell me of Christ, and how He came to the earth to die for our sins. Nothing that he said, made me change my mind. I did not care anything about God and this so called hell that they say is a burning pit where al the lost people go. The one thing that made me stay with William was the love I had for Him. He made me feel like I was so special. He gave me everything that I wanted. By the time we were in our mid thirites, William had given up. He finally gave up his so called "church life style." The day where I saw him get out of church and his religion was when it became perfect for me. I no longer had to hear about all this Christianity that he talked about. We could go out to clubs, and have parties. Life was perfect! We let Rose make her own decisions. She was sixteen when William stopped going to church. She had adopted my life style. She also believed that God was a fable. Rose was always the type to rebel. I guess she saw how I would talk about William and his religion. I would always tear down how William believed, and told Rose to never believe in God. She didn't believe in God either. For a while, it seemed like everything was going my way. My husband had finally stopped all this religion junk, and started to spend more time with me. We would party, and go dancing. Before, when he was in church, he would not go dancing with me, or out to clubs. I finally had persuaded him to go along with me. Our daughter had chosen our same life style, and it just seemed like we were living the good life. Then things for me, turned for the worse. By the time Rose was seventeen, William stopped going partying, and started to go to church again. He told me "that he got out of God's will, and he had sinned." Here was this church junk all over again! He told me "that he got things right with this so called "God of his." That night, I told him, "this so called God of his can show me that He is real. I told of him, if you think that this so called God is real "let him send us all to hell." The next day, all of us went out grocery shopping. There were some young men hollering on the street. They were saying " that Jesus Christ came to this earth and hung on an Old Rugged Tree and died so we could have eternal life. They said that we don't have to go this place called hell, but have eternal peace with our Saviour." I began to look at them and think "what a waste of time!" Rose then began to ask me " Momma, how do you know that hell is not real. What if it is, I don't want to go there!" I told her "that it was all a fable, but truthfully, I had my inward thoughts about if I was wrong. Rose then began to do something I had never seen her do before in a manner which she had done it in. She began to tremble and shake, and she would say " I don't want to go to hell." William began to speak and he said " Rose, I believe that you are under Holy Conviction. Hell is a a real place. God is real, and He died on a cross, to save us from our sins." Rose looked at me, and she said "momma, I don't want to disappoint you, so if you choose not to believe then, I won't either." A minute of silence came along, and then the next thing I knew we were upside down in our car with our gasoline leaking out of the car. I looked beside me, and William was dead. I had no thoughts at that moment. Rose was in the back seat pinned down to where she could not get out. I unbuckled my seat belt, and begin to try to help Rose. At that moment, a fire within the car started to occur. I tried to get Rose out, but I couldn't. The only thing I knew to do, was to get out, and yell for help. The fire was engulfing the car. I heard her scream out "Momma, Momma, I am going to hell. I feel the fire around me. It hurts so bad. Please help me Momma!" I tried to get over there but the fire was to big. Her last words that she screamed out were " Momma," HELL IS REAL, Momma, HELL IS REAL." At that moment, I knew my baby was dead, and in hell burning due to my thoughtless error ways. I got down on my knees and screamed, and begged God to save my baby girl. It was too late. She would forever burn for eternity. I then begin to yell out "God, Save me, Save Me. I am sorry for what I done. I don't' want to go to hell. Please God Save me!" I just began to scream and cry, and I relized at what I had done. I had sent my baby girl to hell. And there was nothing I could do to bring her back. Time had passed and I am now a speaker for schools with kids that have many choices in thier lives. Sometimes, I tell these young kids, " Don't make the same decisions I did. My ignorance sent my daughter to hell. I had to watch her suffer in pain, calling out my name, and there was nothing I could do. Her blood was on my hands. While God had forgiven me, I had to come to terms to forgive my self, which I am still battling today. Please don't tell God no." I often hear my daughter's cries, as the last words she screamed were " Hell is Real, Hell is real." I wrote that story a while back, and thought I would share it. It is fiction. I am so thankful that God saved me from a burning hell, and I have eternal life within me, and I am washed in His blood! Love in Christ, Sadie. Phil.4:13
  21. I am not married, but I have read two books on the Home. One is on the home by Bro. Stinnet Ballew which I greatly enjoyed that and it was a blessing! The other one I was read was on the home by Clarence Sexton and that was a blessing to me! I encourage all those to read!! Love in Christ, Sadie. Phil.4:13
  22. Will You Be The One By: Sadie Katharine _______ Who will go to a land of poverty? Who will go to share God?s word? Souls bound for a burning eternity, All those who have never heard. Will you be the one to tell of God?s love? Will you be the one to share His grace? Will you be the one to tell of His son above? To tell of His glory and Praise? Will you be the one surrendered unto His will? Telling of all that God has done. How he came to bleed and die on Golgotha?s Hill? Will you be the one? People dying each and every day, Lost souls going to a fiery grave. Not knowing that there is another way, Will you be the one to tell them that they can be saved? Will you be the one to tell of God?s love? Will you be the one to share His grace? Will you be the one to tell of His son above? To tell of His glory and Praise? Will you be the one surrendered unto His will? Telling of all that God has done. How he came to bleed and die on Golgotha?s Hill? Will you be the one? Hell, A Real Place By: Sadie Katharine _______ Dirty and lost as can be, I have had a rough life, Everyone has rejected me, Why should I go on and strive. All these years, living a life of pain, No body has attempted to knock on my door, I have been through all those fierce storms and heavy rains, It seemed like I was just hopeless, I did not have a reason to go on anymore. I was a lost sinner on my way to a fiery place Yet no one cared enough to share God's love They never passed by to share that God saved, and all His grace, Will I ever reach Heaven above? No one cared that I was lost and undone, They saw me as dirty and never reached out to me, They never told me that God sent down His only Begotten Son, Now I am living a life in hell for eternity. Forever more, to live a life of endless flames, To live in agony, and suffer every moment of the day, Why wouldn't any body tell me of God's love or even tell me His name. No body had a burden, and now I am forever burning, lost, and astray. Only if Someone had a burden to pray, Only if Someone had compassion and grace, I am forever burning in hell each agonizing moment of the day, Because no one took the time to share God's love, I am forever burning, and will never see God's Precious Face. --------------------- I wrote the first poem just now, and the second one a couple of months ago. I pray that God will allow me to be that one. Last night we had a special service at my church, and the Holy Spirit showed up, and God just really spoke to my heart. I pray that my brother will come to know Christ, and my sister and her family will come to Him, and I want to see my nephews and neices saved, and grow up in a Christian home. It breaks my heart to see my loved ones on thier way to a burning hell. Not only my loved ones, but thier are so many people who are lost and dying and going to hell, who will be in a life of neverendless pain. I pray that I will be that one to tell others about Christ. I pray that God will just work through me, and use my life. Hell is a real place, and if we won't share God's love, then who will? Will we be that one? Love in Christ, Sadie. Phil.4:13
  23. Thank yall for all of yalls advice on here! I greatly appreciate each and every response! I am so thankful that God is showing me things in my life! I thank yall for all the comments. Yall are all such a blessing and an encouragement to my heart! I pray that God will bless yall! [quote="DaveW"]Here in Perth we just finished a week of fellowship meetings, and the theme Verse was Philippians 3:10 That I may know Him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death; and the hosting Pastor asked all the speakers to Preach on that theme, from the Psalms. So I know where you are coming from. Some great messages and the focus seemed to be on worrying less about what we do, and concentrating more on our relationship with Him - getting to know God more deeply and letting that guide us into what He wants us to do, rather than doing lots of stuff and hoping He will bless our efforts. It is good to see the Lord working.

I know many times in my own life I become busy and I find myself taking things for granite, and I just want to live everyday as if it were my last day. Give Him my last breath. I want to spend more time focusing on growing spiritually in my own life, and just spending more and more time with God! God has given me so many oppurtunities to go places and diff. youth meetings, and I thank Him for that, and I believe that He is preparing me for what He has ahead, and just to see what He has already done amazes me more and more each day. He saved my sinful wicked soul from hell, and He deserves all the Glory and praise! My life would be in shambles if it were not for the grace and the life He gave at Calvary! He is our Lord! [quote="John81"]Praise God for the work of the Holy Spirit in your life! Yield to the guidance of the Holy Spirit, spend as much time as you can in prayer and Bible reading/study. The Lord is faithful, if we draw close to Him, He will help us grow and learn. The more we submit to the Lordship of Christ in our lives, the more our old nature is cast down and our new man in Christ built up. Drawing closer to the Lord, submitting to His will is the first step in preparing yourself to be ready for the man the Lord has planned for you. We know if we truly seek His kingdom first, He will add the other things in our lives according to His perfect will. I'll pray for you[/quote] Thank you for your words of wisdom! They were a blessing and such an encouragement to my heart! Thank you for praying as well! When the Lord does send me someone in His timing, I want to be prepared, and that is what He is doing, so my main focus in on Christ our King! And then in His will, His way, the road lies ahead, and I am taking it one step at a time holding His hand! [quote="Timothy"]God does many wonderful things, but I believe with all my heart that He is active and that He seeks followers. The followers have needs--He must supply them! Matthew 6 25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Trusting in God is the key, but even if we are not perfect in our actions and behaviour, He still does some pretty wonderful things for us anyway. What a wonderful God we serve! Hi Sadie! Nice to read that piece of work there. I would like to say first of all, something like what John said, and he obviously is much wiser than I, that if we put God first in all things, He will certainly give us that which we [b]need[/b] (I would like to particularly emphasise that point). Having a desire to get married is not sinful. On the other hand, this can be just one of the [i]many things[/i] that can completely consume our thinking, and can get us away from the One that our thoughts should be focusing on. I don't know one honest person that is completely focused on Christ all the time! We all seem to have trouble with [i]something[/i], and it doesn't necessarily have to be sinful. Praise God for His mercy! Things seemed almost [i]completely out of hand[/i] for me when I was younger. (Not true.) God kept me away from all the [i]bad girls[/i] that this world seem to have a lot of. A few years rolled on, and then I finally decided that I wanted to love Christ more and serve Him with my whole heart. Of course, the "[i]whole heart[/i]" bit has been a problem ever since! The point is that after the decision (not promise) was made, I had to have [u]time[/u] to go out and serve. Without going into "what would have happened [i]if[/i]..." [i]I can say that the trip has been a blessing for me![/i] It took [b]time[/b] for me to learn many things that God had in store for me. God does many wonderful things, but I believe with all my heart that He is active and that He seeks followers. The followers have needs--He must supply them! [i]Matthew 6[/i] 25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on.

What a wonderful God we serve! :smile[/quote] Thank you, such a blessing out of God's word!! Trusting and having faith is the key. I have said this before, but I will say it again. Many times I in my own life pray and pray, and for a while I'll trust God, and then I begin to worry, and to so to speak take back my faith. We serve a faithful God!!!! He has a far better plan than I could ever imagine. My faith relies in Him. Yes, He is wonderful all the time!!!! He is wonderful every second of the day!! I thank Him for His mercy and His tender Grace that He bestows upon us!! I don't deserve any of it, and He has love for me like no other, and all from His saving grace, I have a home in Heaven! He is faithful!! God Bless all of yall!! Love in Christ, Sadie. Phil.4:13
  24. I am going to just pour my heart out and just say what is on my heart. This post might be a little long... Yesterday and Today I went a youth meeting and God tremendously blessed the meeting and the Holy Spirit showed up! His presence is so real, and His love is like no other. Today my pastor was the last one preaching today, and He was talking on being a clean vessel and empty vessel for Christ, and Let Him have you fully! As he preached tears flowed down my face, as I just want to be used by Him and for His glory! I want to be that clean vessel. One of my deepest desires is to be into full time ministry and for God to send me that right young man, and just serve God together. More importantly, as I was crying today, my heart longs to have a closer relationship with Him! He is my first love and will forever be. I want to serve Him with all of my heart, and be that vessel willing to serve and go anywhere for Him. I want to be a vessel that is willing to go to another country and share God's word! More importantly I want what His will is for my life. My former pastor's wife passed away last year. Her name was Sis. Colleen Rogers and she was a great influence and a great role model in my life. She was a prayer warrior, a spiritual woman, A lady of faith. I want to be just like her. She taught me and showed me so many things, and if oh if I could have just a little of what she had. She was a vessel who served God! I don't know exactly where I am going with all of this, but there are so many things I can say. I have been praying that God would send that right man along, and then I pray and cry and in my heart, I want a closer relationship with God more than I do a mate. He is my first love! I want to become closer to Him. I look at my own life, and realize that I need to become closer to Christ. I want to spend more time in the secret place, and more time reading and studying my Bible, I want to soak everything that God has shown and given me in. When God does send me that right man along, I want to be that one that will encourage him, and be his helpmeet, and get up in the morning and spend time with God in prayer, but for right now, I want a more relationship with Christ! And I am still praying and it is still in my heart to have a desire to get married but more importatly I want His will, He is my first love, and I don't want to loose insight of that. So I guess what I am trying to say is I pray that God will make me the vessel he wants me to be. I have my Saviour who gives me strength to go through the day. He gives me His love and His guiding hand day after day, and I want a more relationship with Him, He saved me on Jan. 2, 2007 and He is the master of my life! Love in Christ, Sadie. Phil.4:13
  25. Hi, I need start checking this more often! I didn't know there were new comments... I am praying for you and her and for God's will to be applied. I know that right now it may seem hard, and you or she may not understand but as I believe you are doing, just keep on Trusting God. His will and His way is far better than ours. There are so many things I do not understand and yet I have learned to give it all to God. And I am flesh and I worry and I have so many faults!! We say we give it to God at the alter, and yet we worry and worry and worry about it. It is like we are taking it back. And I am guilty of this, we all are! But if we just give it to God and leave it there, and say God you have it all, you have my life, and make me what you want me to be! I have people right now telling me that God is preparing me for the ministry, and what He has for me, and I believe He is. But just maybe God is preparing the both of you to be the husband/wife and servant yall need to be. I don't know the situation, but when it is God's time it will come. If it is God's will it will come. In the mean time don't give up praying. Keep on staying in the Word of God, and seeking His will and remaining faithful in your prayer life. Just serve God and put him first place and everything will fall into place! Job 22:27 Thou shalt make thy prayer known unto him , and he shall hear thee. Psalms 34:17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all thier troubles. Isaiah 58:9 Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer, thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. ----He is always there for yall are in my prayers!! Keep on Serving Christ!! Thanks, that was a blessing to hear! Everything will happen in God's timing! In His will, in His way!!!! God Bless yall!! Keep on putting Him first place!! Love in Christ, Sadie. Phil.4:13
