The other night i had a cazy dream. I accidently bumped into a very tall man and he got extremely upset. I apologized but he didnt take it to well, so he reached behind the counter where we were standing and grabbed a gun, I turned and walked into the room where the youth and college and career were eating and told them to get down, for a few minutes i was ducked down then decided to give up. I then stood up and before i could say anything he started shooting. I turned and starting screaming as loud as i could IN THE NAME OF JESUS! The only thing i felt was air hitting me when bullets should have been. I woke up lying on my back with my knees pulled to my chest and my body was really tense. As i began to get ready for work i was just thinking about why i had this silly dream, then a scripture came to mind, "The name of the Lord is a strong tower the riteous run into and they are safe." The more i thought about all of this the more i realized how God is always by my side no matter what. When I need him at any given moment but I cant feel him, I dont worry hes there. When im in prayer and I feel like nothings getting past the ceiling, I know hes there. I am assured that anytime i call on the name of Jesus he'll be right there at that very moment. This scripture keeps running through my mind and the dream is constantly replaying, i think of it as Gods way of saying do not be afraid Im here, just trust me. God is my strong tower and i trust him with all my heart, hes never failed me yet. I think all of you could agree. How many times has God stepped in but you thought he wasnt there? How many times have you prayed and not felt his presence but the next day he answered that prayer? We are a blessed people!!!!

I know its been a while since ive last posted but i had a few minor things i had to take care of. Well NYC was awesome as usual. Thursday night was my night. I remember thinking that i was really tired and didnt really want to give my all, so God with his since of humor decided to change my mind for me lol. The preacher preached, the singers sang and Jesus blessed. Ive let a few things come in the way of my God and I,and some of the choices i made we're just stupid. For a while i stopped reading my Bible and praying so i know that if i would have stayed on my knees certain things wouldnt have happened. So after Thursday night my feelings were changed, God didnt speak to me directly but he did use a few people to get to me. I was touched in a way that i havent been familiar with, its hard to explain so all i can say is it was amazing. Since that night i have been keeping up with my readin and prayer. Ive been looking at everything differently, im beginning to se the big picture. Besides that the trip was so much fun and i cant wait to go on the next one.......

I know its been a while since my last post but i do have to say that i didnt get caught by the blog police...LOL.....As you all know i just graduated not to long ago and what a relief. Things got a little crazy with the family being in and all but i think ill be able to get back on track. Umm.....i guess for starters i want to thank you all again for all your prayers and support, it helped tremendously. This year was my year and i claimed it in 2006. I was so excited when i won my first soul and of course i cant wait for another. It was a year of the usual ups and downs but once again here i am still thanking God for all the good times and bad times. God has been so good to me!!!!Young people i know that summer is here and you have this time to have fun but also to prepare yourself for the next school year. I know its hard and sometimes it feels like you absolutely cannot go any further but you'll make. You all have heard my story about all 13 years i attended Petrolia and i m telling you that you are all very lucky and blessed to have other young people from the church helping you make a difference. Go expecting God to use you, in whatever way, hold on a little while longer and your going to be ok. Ok, enough about school, i hope you all enjoy your summer and im looking forward to new things in the remainder of this year.I love you all!!!!!!!

Bro.Andrew mentioned something about ashes, and how they mean absolutely nothing, all they do is fill up a fire place. Then he said that God can take those ashes and make them into something beautiful.God can take a life full of darkness and pain, a life that one may think is not worth living for, and make it ino something so beautiful. He can take away the pain and fill you with joy, take away the darkness and bring forth light, and take a way the worl and give you himself. There are so many people in this ctity who feel like their life is pointless and alls they are here for is to fill an empty space. God wants to use each one of us to reach these very people so he can make their lilves beautiful, o he can take awy their hurts and pains and give them rest. I n my school, young people, there are several who everyday tell me that their life is nothing and they wish they were never born and so on, their lives are hurting and its my job to tell them of a God who will make them beautiful and take all that away. Its your job too. when you go to school and you hear someone talk about how much they hate their lives, at that very second is when they become desperate for a change, they become vulnerable and want to hear what you have to say because they know you and what you do every Sunday and Wednesday, they know that you know how to reach God. Be persistant if one turns you down, dont give up their lives are important, they are ashes needing to be made beautiful!!!!!!!!

We all know how big our God is, and every time we speak his name, hes always going to show up right in the middle of the storm. We all know that when a situation, trial, or tribulation comes along, the first thing we do is go straight to our knees, because we serve a God who is bigger than that situation. Well for the past month or so, give or take, ive been on my knees in prayer for a couple of girls i work with. Yes, some of you have met them and i think they felt welcome when they came to the church. Thank you for being so kind and accepting to them. Anyways, we all have our rough times in life and we all need someone to pray for us or when we are at church we just need some one to pray with us, it always seems to help. I have a favor for all of you who are reading this. All i would like for you guys to do is pray. There are a couple of situations that are desperately needing to be taken care of, and i know that if we all pull together, God will intervene in this certain situation. These girls need our prayers more than you and i both know. They are souls and they deserve to feel what we get to feel when we are in the presence of God. I love both of them with all my heart and want to see them further their lives in the kingdom of God. Im speaking to myself when i say this but we all need to get a little desperate for souls, God has been filling people with his spirit and im ready to see him move in these lives, its a cry of desperation. I hope you all will pray and seek God with me, for these girls!!!!!!!

HYC was awesome once again. Thursday night Jesse and Leslie were lets just say i little tipsy..... ok ok totally drunk in the spirit....Lol, Friday night Bro Sergent spoke about faith, how you should go to school and work or wherever having faith that God will do a work in those that surround you. To me its like we cant get away from this subject. Faith is a very important aspect to living for God, without it we dont have a hope. God is doing a work in this church, he has set this youth group on fire, we are no longer in a drought. God has sent healing rain and sooner or later we will be seeing that wave of souls that Bro Creekmore spoke about when he was here for revival. Its our time now! How great is your faith??????????

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, im so excited for HYC i cant hardly control myself......Lol! Well im expecting great things to happen and i know that something in the youth group is going to ignite!!!! Young people we know how to come back on fire, especially when we are praying till, what was it, midnight??? Anyways, I dont know about all of you but i want to be completely sold out for Jesus!!!! I feel like this year we are going to see a whole lot more healings and miracles take place. Im ready to hear the doctors tell Sis Barbara and Sis Shahan that their bodies are free of cancer!!!!! Healing rain IS falling down!!!!! Like i said, im expecting great things to happen at HYC. Im also extremely excited for Sunday , alot of visitors will be there and they will be filling the presence of God, lets see how many get the Holy Ghost or are Baptized in Jesus name!!!! Im ready to see what happens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well TGIF! im so excited, i woke up this morning, thanked God for this new rainy day and thought hmmmmm life is great!Tonight as you all know is 7.25 Powernight.My friend Keri is coming and shes trying to bring her friend also,God is good. It seems like after one thing happens a domino effect starts to take place. You bring one preson for a certain amout of time and pretty soon you dont have to ask "hey do you wanna come with me on this certain day?" No, they ask you "can i come with you?" Its a great feeling!!! Anyways this domino effect that im talking about is Souls!!! Bring one and they bring one, then they bring one, and so on! Whats even better is the Two bird one stone thingy, i asked a friend if shed come tonight and she said "sure", well the next time i talk to her she says "do you mind if this person comes with me?" My automatic response was O YEAH!!!! She looked at me funny and we went our ways and shes been asking questions since then.I hear the sound of the abundance of rain. Somethings goin on here and its definitely not the devil thats letting this all happen. God is our Rock, we have a hope!!! Theres coming a day when we get see our Lord, and O what a day thats gonna be!!!!!! This is just a little bit of what God has been doing for me since the end of January and im loving him more and more every day!!!!

I dont know about all of you but my cup is full and overflowing!!! I can say that ive felt Gods presence strongly, until Sunday night that is, now i cant describe it. God asked me a question Sunday, he simply said" Do you think that its not possible" then he said "Worship me, give me everything and ill show you that it is.'' I dont know how all you feel but after that i felt like God literally drained me. We have been challenged, are we going to accept the challenge or sit back and see what happens????? I feel God pushing this church, and i know for sure he is raising the bar, he wants us to go further than what we usually go, he wants us to go beyond the breaking point. I feel revival, its to the point where its like rain, before it rains you can always smell it, and you notice the atmosphere gets a little humid, and the wind picks up a little. Well in our sense, revial is on its way we can feel and see a little bit of it, but its not exactly here and our atmosphere of praise each time we are in church is gettin a little stronger, then the next service its even more stronger which is like the wind in a storm when it reaches its severe stages. God is preparing us for "rain,"I always think of that song Healing Rain, its a very true song and i know that im ready to see Revival in our church, i love hearing about revival happening in other churches, its great, but im ready to see an outpour in ours!!!! I ve accepted the challenge, will you????
I never thought id have a blog.......ever, but Bro. Andrew is right, never say never!!!! On second thought it does give me something to do when im not cleanin, workin, or when im just bored, so im sure ill get used to it. I just hope that i dont get put on the bloggers at rest list.....Lol!!! I am trying to get a slide show of friends and family up, im sure itll take a little while.....for me anyways, im not used to all this computer stuff, i think of it as simply being computer challenged. Anyways i hope you all enjoy it!!!!!
I have a burden for these girls i work with, none of which attend church. Well two of them are coming friday night and im so excited!!! I wrote a couple pages of things that have been on my mind since Wednesday. God has spoken to our church, he said "a healthy mother gives birth to a healthy child," to us that would be, a healthy church gives birth to healthy, born again souls. those that come in and sell themselves out for God, souls that wont give up or leave when a situation rises against them, and souls that will be determined to win others to God!!!! We have a responsibility, that is to live for God and let him use us to reach the lost! We dont have time to wait for people to come to us, we must go to the city!!! Young people i know that at school its hard but i promise you that if you just hang on a little while longer, God will provide. Ive been there, but the little things that someone says or starts is worth absolutely nothing and in the long run means nothing. Dont worry about what people say or think of you, worry about what God thinks of you. We are children of the Almighty God, hes on our side. If God before us, my only question is, Who can be against us???????
