This past week I watched the movie called, Do You Believe? I took notes during the movie because several things stood out to me. Here are some quotes I took from the movie:
"The cross is blood-stained, painful. It loves and forgives and demands. But what does it demand? We profess it to this dark world. And if you believe, then the question is what are you going to do about it?"
-Malachi, played by Delroy Lindo
I, myself, have been struggling with this question. I accepted Christ into my heart when I was a young girl, so I do believe in God. My problem lately is that I'm having trouble Believing God. This is a segue into the book I"m reading titled Believing God by Beth Moore. How can I be the witness that God wants me to be when I'm struggling with my own belief system? What am I going to do about it? I'm believing God. He will put the people into my path that I can share Him with, and He will give me the words I need that they especially need t…
I've recently started reading a book called "Heaven" by Randy Alcorn. I'm not very far into it, but it has been rather insightful. I've come to the point of keeping a notebook close by to write down any quotes that make me think, and changes the way I see things about my spiritual walk. It's a good thing for me, though.

My family got an answer to a prayer last night! First, a bit of history: When my sister, Amee, was younger she had two children, a boy and a girl. She had been…
I've been so tired lately. Tired of the death that's been surrounding me, and my family. Tired of working non-stop only to be faced with the reality of death when I have any spare time. I've been writing a bunch of poetry only to keep me sane. If I stop, I'm afraid of what will happen in my brain. Will I snap? I feel like I'm tettering on the edge of an abyss, and if I'm not careful it's down I go.
I know God is with me even now, and for that I'm very grateful. Without him, I don't know how strong I would be. He is my strength, comfort, and reason for living. I'm just having a lot of "Footprints" moments in my life right now.
Footprints in the Sand
One night I had a dream. I was walking along the beach with the Lord, and across the skies flashed scenes from my life. In each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand. One was mine, and one was the Lord's. When the last scene of my life appeared before me, I looked back at…
