|Who Am I||
This is such a good song!!!! Worn by Tenth Avenue North.
I don't really get this project- all it is is you make something you like to do (I'm doing a volleyball court) and you connect God into all the school areas and display the connections on the project. So why even make a volleyball court? Oh well... It's a good reminder for me, since we have to look back and see where we found God this year.
I DID IT :) I am now a full professing member of the church and can take communion!!! Excited :) I've been really close to God these past couple of days, so it was a perfect time for the service!
The service went great, it was pretty much dedicated to the 7 of us. We got to choose some songs and stuff. I was realllly freaking out, but I rocked reading my testimony.
Afterwards I shook like 10000 people's hands and ate cake.
My cousins came, who aren't Christians, and they said the sermon was really powerful. So I'm hoping God changes their heart!!!
So. My group of 7 met with the Elders and Deacons on Tuesday. We got to read our testimonies...I was really nervous, but everyone was smiley and wanted you to do good. I did just fine and dandy :) SOOOOOOO excited to make Profession of Faith on May 5!!!!!! It's coming up!!!
I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
Enough said :)
I have a Fitness Feat at school today. It's 2 miles, which is really hard for me, a sprinter... Last year I wrote Phil. 4:13 on my hand and looked at it whenever I needed encouragement.
For Profession of Faith, we have to write our testimony, or faith story. I have noooo idea where to start. General ideas-
~Jesus was something I knew, didn't REALLY care about it elem. school
~He became REAL during middle school trials
~I know I can lean on Him now. seriously.
~I'll talk about important people and events too.
Excited to write it, but also nervous. I'm really excited to hear the whole group read theirs (8 people).
Dying eggs, eating ham, being with family......EASTER. I know that I'll tear up on my Maundy Thursday survive, because it's amazing what Jesus did. Easter is a different story though. Instead of somberness :), we rejoice!!! I love seeing all the little girls in their Easter dresses and singing the hallelujah chorus. It's amazing what Jesus did for me, and I'm excited for Easter!!!!!!!!!
I'M DOING PROFESSION OF FAITH!!!!!! EXCITED!!!!!! I was really disappointed because my church got rid of the old way (Taking Root) and now my youth leader is in charge of it. He's amazing. I had one class last week and will have one on Thursday this week.
I can't really summarize the message of the whole class in a sentence but maybe this -> We are God's purpose, He sees us without sin (which I'm still not clear on) and He does stuff for our own good.
Hold Me Together by Royal Tailor...really good song. I usually like peppy/rockish songs, but this is nice and...mellow? The message is really good. I love it when I find Christian songs that I actually can listen to more than once :)
Because without you, holding my heart, I'm falling apart.
