Wow...How time has flown

I am ending my first semester of College. I have one more week and I will be done! It is so hard to believe. I am so lucky to have family and friends who have had my back all through this semester. My oldest brother Scott and his wonderful wife Becky are the ones I am living with while I am going to college. I was talking with my mom earlier today and I told her how I am so glad I live close to family. I probably would not have been able to make it with out them. I love and thank my brother and sister in law so much for opening their home and letting me live with them while I am going through this new chapter in my life.

When I first started college a couple of months ago, I was a nervous wreck. I did not know what to expect. But while all that was going on in my mind, my life verse popped into my head; Phillipians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ who strenghens me." And that verse is so true. I was able to accomplish my first semester of college, because of Jesus Christ.

I have learned this semester; You can accomplish anything as long as you keep your eyes on Jesus!

Gods path for MY life

One thing that I have had to learn since moving away for college is, I cannot run my life on my own, God has to be the one in charge. God is a mighty god and he will bless you when you let him be the light in your life. When I moved here I needed a car. The day I moved to Arkansas on June 6, God led the Edwards family into my life. They are a loving family that go to the church that I am at now, Clearwater Missionary Baptist Church. They not only had a car for me but they gave it to me for free!! I was blown away. The only way something like that could have happened was if God was in it. And God was! That was just one sign that showed me that I was on the right path God has set for me. The summer was coming to an end and I realized with school approaching I needed a job. There were many places for me to look but I did not know where to start. So I told myself I would wait till the weekend was over and I would start looking the next week. That sunday God brought a wonderfuly lady into my life, to whom we are really good friends to this day. Her name is Mandy; that sunday she came up to me and ask if I was looking for a job, and if I was there was an opening at the job she worked at. It was a Chiropractors Office. She said it was a part time job and that they would be very flexible with my school schedule. I thought to myself you have got to be kidding me, I was just about to start job hunting and this lady just by chance came to me and asked me about if I was looking for a job. All I could think and say was, "Thank you Lord!" I now work at Chiropractic Care Clinic in Searcy, AR. My first day was July 15, 2009.

God has shown me that if I will just let him take control of my life, he will lead me in the right direction and will also let his blessing rain upon me.

"God will never leave me, nor forsake me" Hebrews 13:5
