I'm Sponsoring a Child!

When my family and I went to a concert last month, Mercy Me was telling the audience about Compassion, an organization that lets people sponsor children from another country. My parents did one, as well as my brother and I! The Lord has blessed me with a job most of my life, so I thought it was time to give some back.

This is who Fatima is! :-) She is 8 years old and lives in Peru with her mom!

I would highly recommend that you go visit and see how you can help children who are in need of clothing, food or education.

Thanks for reading!!
God bless,

Enjoying life at it's fullest!

Something about me is that I love to be random! :-) I love to do anything random, weird, strange and peculiar.

I realized a couple years ago, that everyone lives life on earth only once. Putting eternity after you die aside, I figured out that if I only live life on earth once, why not live it to it's full potential!? So since then, I have tried to live life as "weird" and random as possible, do cool and fun things, and make people happy.

Those are just a couple examples of what I have been doing that I call "weird/random/fun/awesome" for a 16 year old...I plan to share more of my awkward and random moments with you all as time goes by! :D

The Lord...Full of Mercy

This is something I typed up the other day. One of my favorite chapters in the Bible is Psalm 51. It's the prayer of my life and it has meant to a lot to me over my faith.

"When I fall away from the Lord, He always seems to find me again. When I fail Him, He always finds a place in His abundant mercy to forgive me. When I cry, He lifts my head up. When I am ashamed, He comforts me. When I am happy, He laughs with me. And when I need someone to talk to, He is always there, to listen and to answer." -Josiah Blanchard

I thought I would just type out Psalm 51, not only so you could read it, but so that I could see this chapter on my blog as well.

Have mercy upon me, O God,
According to Your lovingkindess;
According to the multitude of Your tender mercies,
Blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
And cleanse me from my sin.
For I acknowledge my transgressions,
And my sin is always before me.
Against You, You only, have I sinned,
And done this evil in Your sight --
That You may be found just when You speak
And blameless when You judge.

Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
And in sin my mother conceived me.
Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,
And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Make me hear joy and gladness,
That the bones You have broken may rejoice.
Hide Your face from my sins,
And blot out all my iniquities.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from Your presence,
And do not take You Holy Spirit from em.

Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.
Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,
And sinner shall be converted to You.

Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,
The God of my salvation,
And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
O Lord, open my lips,
And my mouth shall show forth Your praise.
For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it;
You do not delight in burnt offering.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
A broken and contrite heart --
These, O God, You will not despise.

Do good in Your good pleasure to Zion;
Build the walls of Jerusalem.
Then You shall be please with the sacrifices of righteousness,
With burnt offering and whole burnt offering;
Then they shall offer bulls on Your altar.

Thanks for reading. Hopefully this chapter can also help you when you fell away from your Faith with Jesus, or are struggling to keep Him in your life.

God bless,
