You Matter

Every year here or on my other blog I reflect on my life and I write about the growth I have been through. This year I decided to do something different based on the ministry we are getting off the ground. I did my third official Vlog, where I am on camera speaking to you all. I was really nervous. I pray that me stepping out in faith really bless you all. I love you! You Matter! DOn’t forget that…

Here are the references she mentioned in the video.

đź“–Bible Verses:

âśž John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (New International Version)

âśž Hebrews 13:5-6 Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,” so that we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. “What will man do to me?” (New American Standard Version)

âśž John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (King James Version)

I have notice so many people are hungry now days. Not hungry by the lack of food, but emotionally, mentally, and physically.  People are searching for something that will fill where they are lacking.  But in things that won’t really help.  Such as: Sex, alcohol, gambling, false idols.

We as the human race are at the time of major changes personally and globally.  Change is hard and so many people are looking for something to cling to sustain them, especially, now around the holidays.

I noticed around Christmas I begin to think about the year past, all I didn’t accomplish, achieve, and am still lacking… I specifically seem to dwell on failures and what I don’t have yet in my life. For example, I should have a book done by now, I wish I had my boyfriend here to share the holidays with. As a result; I get more sensitive, cranky, and lonely….

But then Christmas Eve rolls around and I become extremely thankful for what I have, and all that has happened, and those in my life….   The holiday’s takes a toll on us: Families, friends, money, gifts you want to give and get, trying to prepare the perfect atmosphere for a few days…..  It can be very overwhelming…  One becomes desperate, anxious, hungry…..  It just has to be “PERFECT”.

This year more than other years I realize people seem more then desperate, they are starving for acknowledgment, closeness, success, achievement.. Yet most are going the wrong way. Instead of turning to God, they are running to what they think will fill the void, only to find it growing deeper…

I have also realized that Christmas is one month out  of the year, better yet  only for my family about 36 hours of festivities… Then next we bring in the New Year, and the cycle starts over….  Nothing really changes……

This year I am choosing to skip the pity party that seem to have already started and go straight to that thankful atmosphere. By doing so, I lose a lot of wasted time, and by choosing to be happy, I hope I can help others be happy around me…. But it starts with a choice. I have to choose to change. It is not going to be easy, but nothing really worth it is easy… I am not going to dig a hole and burrow in my emotions; instead I am asking God for hand up, and joy to replace the stress, grief, loneliness, and frustration….

I am filling up on God’s word, I am eating the preaching’s of the pastors I love and drinking in the scriptures my friends are sharing…  I am not close to becoming full yet, but I am also not starving anymore, not in the way I was before.  I wish I could feed everyone this way too. So that they will not be hungry anymore! I pray for all the lost sheep out there. The people who don’t know what they are looking for…

I want to be a good example of Christ and who He is, so that the hungry people around me can be fed…

I urge you to look to God to fill   your plate. Not the internet, not the tv, not shopping, nor in other people. What you’re looking for can only be found in one place…  In Christ! I do not know how to explain it however once you let Christ in your life changes and you no longer fill empty, if you truly let Him in… I still feel lonely, not in the same way…

Don’t wait till Christmas to unwrap this Gift. It’s yours now, waiting with your name on it. For God so loved YOU, He gave His only Begotten son, Jesus Christ, so that who so ever believes in Him, shall have everlasting life. ~ John 3:16

If you already have Him in your heart I suggest you reevaluate your relationship and do as I am and submerse yourself in His word! Give yourself the best Christmas of all, and remember the reason for the season. He is the greatest comfort!

God Bless you,

Merry Christmas~

Are You Lost?

are you lost? magnify


Have you ever had a day where you were searching for something and you were sure you knew where it was, but then you went there and what you were looking for was not found? So you keep searching…? I can’t tell you how many times I have been in that situation.. Isn’t it frustrating? However, once you forget about the thing you’re searching for, you find it nine times out of ten.

This not only applies to martial things but also to physical, emotional, and spiritual things as well. Here are some things I have searched for: a husband to feel needed and wanted; A purpose in life, to feel important, and to know where I am going; My keys, I am always misplacing them; and for a fiery passion towards God, my spiritual needs.

As a teen I went through a very rough break up, a lot of health situations (Heart surgeries, comas, strokes ect.) I became furious at God and I doubted his care for me. I started looking elsewhere into other things. But what I found was more pain, more anger, and everything I didn’t want. The same goes for looking for my purpose and other things, I felt less important, and less needed then I ever wanted to feel. I was doing everything except trusting in God to take care of me and my needs, emotionally, physically, financially, and mentally…

Thankfully before my third surgery I was shown how I had changed for the worst and I hated the new me. I was cruel, controlling, angry, and not the Amy I was. I had become someone else someone I despised. I went back to church not knowing what to do and I joined in the before service praise and worship prayer meeting. And during the worship I heard the song “Draw me Close To You” and I did. I asked for his forgiveness and I found peace. Such an intense peace I could not have comprehended it to request it. It changed my life.

So while I was looking for an escape I found things I didn’t want and when I finally gave up and let God. And I found something much better. I have lost many things sometimes it takes me days to find. I get panicky and frantic but then I remember I need to pray and soon after I find what I was looking for.

Don’t get caught up in the bad, even though at times it can be very overwhelming. Because with God anything is possible and he will open doors for you and give you the things or something much better. But He cannot until you give your problems up to him. Until you trust in him to take care of you, he can’t do anything. So set your pride aside and pull out your humility. Then you will see doors opening where you have never seen them before, your path will be clearer, and your heart will be lifted. It is not as easy as it sounds, it is a consistent battle, but well worth it. I can’t express how my life has changed. You just need to trust that God can do the same for you. As people say “Let go and Let God”.

That’s all for now,

God Bless you, Merry Christmas, Happy New year, and Thank you for reading.
