Hi my friends!

This is going to be quick today, as I got to get off in just a minute. But, I wanted to check in and see how everyone's week went? I realize it's only been about 4 days since the last post though. What ways can we be praying for you?

I feel just about the same as I did last time I posted. Over all, I feel like it went pretty well, but there were still some struggles with using my time wisely. I'm starting to get frustrated with myself since I keep haven't the same 'update' in this area every week. I'm always doing 'ok', but I don't want it to be that way. It's a sin I want to kill, but I don't want to take the steps to kill it. So please pray that I can really change this bad habit with God's help over the coming weeks...and that next time, there really will be a change!

Hopefully I'll see all of you tonight :-)

AHHH...I'm sorry!

AHHH...I'm sorry! Please forgive me. I was sick part of this past week and it just threw me off. And, it totally slipped my mind.

Anyhow, how was your week last week? What were your struggles? Or actually, how did you feel strengthened by Christ? Where you dependent on Him and His strength?

This past week I have felt really encouraged....for a few reasons. A month or two ago, our family started doing a weekly 'Bible study' and that has been awesome. Besides church, it's the highlight of my week. It is almost like a 'mid-week refresher'. Because of that and the accountability that comes along with that, I feel like I've been much more encouraged in all of my struggles. Anyhow, I have been much more diligent with my Bible reading. I will not allow myself to go to bed each night until I have read my Bible and had some time with the I feel like I am really growing in my walk with the Lord there. Also, I can't really say how I've been with school because our family had the flu most of the week, so we didn't really have a 'normal school week'. But, I think in some cases I was wise with my time and others maybe not so much....

Have an awesome week. Stay strong,

Hey everyone!

To mix it up this week, I would like each of you to tell me(and the rest of us) how we can be praying for you this coming week. I of course am always praying for you all, but it might help if you told us how exactly we can be praying. Also, try to tell me/us how you've felt encouraged this week and if anything has particularly encouraged you as well.

I would like continued prayer for my time management. God has really helps me overcome a lot of stuff this week with managing my time. But I could still grow a lot there. I have been greatly encouraged by reading my Bible daily. It's really neat how much it can bless me every day and that really motivates me to spend more time reading and praying.

Also, thank you few who have been faithful to post/comment on here despite your busy lives. I really want to encourage some of you others to post or even just comment sometime. Jesus instructs us to encourage one another and I think this is a great outlet to do so. Even something as small as posting a verse to share can really bless someone =)

1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

Love you all! See you tomorrow!

Hi my friends!

How did you week go? I feel like this question is getting cliche, but there really is no other way to ask it without addressing you personally. Oh, maybe I'll do that!

Alright, so Mee, I will start with you. How have you done with your time management? Do you feel like you've made good use of it? And have you been leaning on God to help give you the strength you need?

Mark, I haven't heard from you in a few weeks. I'm assuming you're quite busy with work and school. How have done with reading your Bible everyday? How do you feel like you've done in growing in your walk with the Lord? Have you been investing in your friends like you would like to?

Melly. Do you feel like you're still deepening your walk with the Lord? How have you done this week with your time management? Have you been wise with God's time? Have you been working towards more Biblical fellowship with your friends and Christ-centered discussion?

Cara...I don't believe that you ever defined a particular resolution or goal for this year. But you have been faithful to post! Are there any particular things that I can be praying about for you? Or do you have any thing you'd like to share about how your week has been?

I believe that's all of you that have been posting. Also, I'm continuing to pray for you, Chelsey and everyone else getting ready to go to Rekindle! And Melly, still praying for your dad's job situation! Any other general prayer requests?

Oh, I almost forgot to let you all know how my week has been. I've been faithful to spend time reading my Bible daily, which I believe has greatly encouraged me this week. Time management wise, this is still a struggle for me. I have had a very busy week, so I've had trouble getting all my school done. But, yes, I still have not always been wise with my time, unfortunately. =/

Love each of you. Stay strong!

Another Prayer Request

Hey all,

I just wanted to ask if you all could pray for my dad to get a job really soon. We are on a very tight budget, but thanks be to God we are not in debt.
My dad has a job that looks like it's going to open up, so just pray that it will go through and that he'll get hired within the next couple weeks.
Thank you in advance. We know God will provide because He always has.
"Fear the Lord, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing. The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing." Psalm 34:9-10
And Luke 12:22-32.

In Christ,

Prayer Request

Hey all, sorry I have not been faithful to post has been crazy lately and I've been struggling with the past few weeks with being patient through a tough circumstance and having faith that God will work it all out in His timing.

But thats not my prayer request (although feel free to pray for that too :P) my prayer request is for Rekindle. 95 (give or take) college students are leaving Sunday at 12:30 from the church for a week in Laguna Beach Florida. We'll be diving into the Gospel all week and you can just pray for a safe trip, a great time, new friendships, a greater love and passion for God and that we'll each be able to meet with God while we're down there.

Thanks guys!!!!!
