Faith


                          Faith

I do not have all the answers, but I do know that no matter what you will always have your faith and trust in God. No matter what life brings your way remember God already has the victory! No one can take your faith away from you. Hebrews 11:1 says "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen". Also 2 Corinthians 5:7 says "for we walk by faith, not by sight". Remember those verses throughout your day, throughout your life. Without faith it is impossible to believe in God. Faith is what helps us believe and trust in what we can't see. Even though truly we can see God everywhere, for he is the Creator of the earth we live on. I will leave you with this verse, which sums up why Faith is so important. Ephesians 2:8 says that: "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God".

Dear Trey, (and others like you)

A letter from a caring fan:

Dear Trey, (and others like you)

I see your struggle. I might can’t relate to it, what you feel or what you are going through, but I hear what you are saying. So does God. He loves you more than you can fathom, but he does not condone your sin. For that matter he does not condone any sin what so ever. He is a just and righteous God.

I’m saying this out of love and concern for not only you, but all the other people out there like you. Struggling with the same thing.

Some may say that just saying you are gay but not acting on it is not a sin, that it is okay. Which is not true. If you have embraced it and accepted it to become who you think you should be then it is already is a sin. Once you accept it you have acted on it.

I know you and others say that the teaching of the church is hurtful. The teachings that the church teaches is the truth, the holy word of God. The truth does hurt and it does offend, especially if you are living in sin. If you read Romans 1:24-32, you will see that the lifestyle you and others have chosen to embrace is not of God. Which leads to false teachers, the ones telling you that what you are doing is okay. That God is okay with it and you are not in the wrong. 2 Timothy 4:3-4 says: “For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear. They will reject the truth and chase a myth.”

My next issue is saying that you’re a “gay Christian”, those words do not fit together. You are either one or the other. It all comes down to this simple truth: Christians are supposed to be Christ like. Nothing about homosexuality is Christ like, therefore you can not be a “gay Christian”.

All of you have fallen into this trap of being deceived by the enemy’s lies. I’m not sure how it came to happen, but it did. He has whispered these lies of attractions for the same sex in your ears and put these sinful thoughts in your heads, until you finally caved and gave in. Romans 1:25 tells us this: “They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshipped and served things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen”.  So accepting this lie of being gay and saying it is who you are, you have traded Gods truth for a lie and you are now serving yourself and your selfish desires.

Yes we all sin. Yes no sin is greater than another. The difference with homosexuality is you have embraced it and made it who you are. You are not ashamed of it. You are not repentant for it. Therefore you openly live in your sin everyday. God does forgive, but only if you are willing to let go of your sins.

This world is changing, but God never changes. His word never changes. It will not change to accommodate your lifestyle. Hebrews 13:8 says: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” and Malachi 3:6 says: I am the Lord and I do not change. That is why your descendants of Jacob are not already destroyed”.

I want to end this letter with this:
2 Corinthians 5:20
“ So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”. 

I plead Come back to God!

It has been a long time....

Wow! It's been a long time since I have posted anything. I've been super busy with my new role of being a Mother. I have to say it has been so amazing and tiring at the same time.I understand now what it really means to be exhausted, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world! I love my little man to the moon and back...and back again!

I just can't believe it has been 6 months!!!  He is 6 months old!!! This is crazy! He has been with us half a year! It's true what they say about time flying by, because it seems like we just brought him home from the hospital.

And now here he is rolling over and pushing up, eating baby food, and probably fixing to get a tooth or two. I mean how does this happen? Time, it's a crazy thing. I have realized now just how precious and dear time really is. So just a note to everyone out there, never forget the time you have is so very precious. Spend it wisely, because its gone before you know it.

Counting down the days!

So it has been a long time since I've wrote a post, but here is goes. I'm 39 weeks and still going. Playing the waiting game now, we are so ready for our little guy to come!
 Everything has been going really good and I'm so thankful for that. Found out that our little man has some hair, eek! So excited! So I guess the next post, which may be a little while will be of our little one. Can't wait to meet him!


Here's a pic of my 36 week bump.



















38 week bump!

25 Weeks!

I know it has been a long time since I have done a post. We are Having a  BOY!!! I'm so excited!

 So here I am at 25 weeks!
This was a 24 weeks pic but not much has changed yet.

Since my last post everything has been going great, no sickness or anything. The only thing I have faced is being tired a lot and that I can deal with. Oh and one thing I have decided to do is Cloth Diapers! I'm super excited about that too! I know some people probably wonder how I can be so excited about such a thing, but I am. Plus all the money it will end up saving us in the long run. Yeah The good Cloth Diapers are not cheap but they are worth it, because they should last us through at least 2 if not 3 kids! At first I was so against Cloth Diapers, but then I did a lot of research and found out how truly easy it will be so I was sold! Once our little guy gets here and I've had time to adjust I may try to do some Cloth Diaper posts. Well that's all for now. Until next time! God Bless

15 weeks!


 

I'm so amazed at how my belly is growing! I'm still kind of in shock that I am actually pregnant. Its pretty awesome knowing that there is a little person growing inside of me. Seeing the ultrasounds and watching them move around, its funny seeing it but not being able to feel it yet. I'm so ready to feel my baby move! I know some people may think that's weird or crazy, but I am. I can't wait! I am all about looking at baby stuff now. Every time I walk in a place I want to go look at the baby stuff! Can't help it, I'm just so excited! Having a baby is something that I have wanted for a long long time and now that that time is finally here I'm so amazed! It is true about God's timing, it is perfect! 


Psalm 139:13-16
(ESV Version)
For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.

 I love this shirt, I think it is so cute!
