Hypocrisy is a growing epidemic.

Hypocrisy is so prevalent in this generation. Everywhere I turn I see it, why is so hard for people to either be hot or cold? To believe or to not believe? To give a yes or a no? Why do we say one thing in a group of people but then say something completely different in another group of people?  Why can we not say what we mean and mean what we say?? People take on the title as a Christian, They love the lord, they go to church and when they are at church they are someone that is a stranger to themselves the other 6 days out of the week.  That makes me so sad. It has to feel like you don’t know who you are. I believe that when I found who I was and who God said I was that those things seem to vanish. I’m not saying I never deal with them because as a young adult in this world I am faced with it every single day whether it’s in the break room at work or at the grocery store.  This is my opinion but I believe that when there is an absence of purpose in someone’s life that’s where the difficulties come in. I read this quote today that really just summed it up. 

Purpose means knowing who we are in Christ and what He has done for us, then acting out our relationship and redemption by being obedient to God’s will. It is the pursuit of God so He becomes the driving force, inspiration, motivation, and reason for all we do in life.” 

What do you think we can do to help prevent our generation from missing their purpose in life? Or knowing who they are? Do you feel it’s achieved by people helping you along the way or 100% up to you?

15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”- Revelation 3:15-16

I love you

Have you ever had those moments when God really just showed up but it was the simplest way not a big boom or a ring of fire or a big loud voice just simple. Well tonight I had one of those moments and I really just neeeded it. I taught kids tonight at church and lets just say it was late and they were not wanting to llisten to me so I just sat down and let them run their little hearts out but deep down I just felt like a bad teacher and like the mean teacher who kept telling them to sit down. So I guess you could say I had a mini pitty party lol

I had this little 4 year old come up and tug on my hand and pull me down to her level. She grabbed my face with her hands and said "I love you" It was so simple. If we could only just allow him to speak to us in the simple ways. I pray I start doing that more!

My day so far...

Ok so this is how my day has gone. First I lock my keys in my car the sheriff has to come, we get it unlocked then my alarm wont shut off, I can not stop laughing. We finally get it off and for some reason instead of me getting in my drivers door to leave I climb over the passenger seat! On the way home a guy was on my side driving towards me on the road so i had no choice but to drive in the ditch! I was so scared so I was laughing the whole time!!! Then I had to go to the bank and get gas so Im waiting in line behind the cars at the gas station and this big truck with a round hay bail is backing into a spot he looks at me so... i look at him he rolls down his window so... I roll down mine. I thought he wanted to say something so as soon as I realize that he was just rolling down his window to see how far he could back up I quickly saved myself the humiliation and said "You're fine" I then quickly rolled my window back up and stared forward! haha

You're gonna make it

You may feel like your just starting over
Mistakes from your past that just want to hold ya
Down to the ground its all on your shoulder
You'll never make it now that's what they told ya
You start to figure out who really cares for ya
When no ones around no one is there for ya
When I was down and out and life was getting colder
Well I found that's when God showed up
Your trying to make it right they make it hard for ya
But God will take a life even if it's broke up
Give you strength to fight whatever's coming toward ya
And don't forget that I'm always praying for ya

It's not fair all the things that just had to happen
Some days you wake up and feel like you've been abandoned
Life didn't shape up in the way that you planned it
The life you live is not the one that you imagined
I know they laugh and pick on you
I know you've had a lot of junk that you gone through
But I know who would never ever wrong you
Never quit on you and help you get on thru
When you fell he was the one who caught you
With every single tear man see he saw you
He was right there every time he called you
And I'll be praying for you gonna get on through

You try to pray but feel too ashamed too
Cuz those around you they just wanna blame you
But don't listen now just to what they say dude
God loves you he never hates you
You can count on the fact that hes faithful
Always exactly on time always came thru
When your blind you feel you lost your way too
He'll guide you and help you to find your way through
He knows you he's the one that made you
In anything you go thru now he can save you
And help you and plus give you strength too
You're gonna make it man you're gonna be ok

My title today was "New Girl"

Today was my first full day at the salon. It was pretty good, everyone was nice and even though it was slow for me because I was training it was pretty good. Although, I hate the feeling of being the new girl. Im used to having my girls with me at school and being in that salon environment so today was a bit out of my comfort zone.....well maybe a lot out of my comfort zone  at first but as the day went on I just had to keep saying "You got this" And I met one of the guys at the salon that so reminded me of a friend of mine so it made me feel a lot more comfortable! So if any of you are ever in Ohio ya'll better come have a spa day with mwah!
