Young Maiden's Daybook - April 5

April 5, 2010

Outside my window…

Dark, cold, & the sun is getting ready to start appearing Ü.

I am thinking…
"Had it not been for a place called Mount Calvary;
Had it not been for the old rugged cross;
Had it not been for a man called Jesus;
Then forever my soul would be lost."
I am SO glad that Jesus sacrificed His life for me
and that I have a secured place in Heaven!

I am thankful…
For the Lord's blessing of wonderful friends.
I'm really sad to be leaving them soon :-(.

I am wearing...
Chick-Fil-A uniform:
maroon collared shirt & black skirt.

I am reading…
The Holy Bible:Proverbs, Mark, 1 Corinthians;
The Apocrypha: Wisdom of Solomon
"Fascinating Truths" by James Knox
"The Lost Cause Series" by James Knox
"Do Hard Things" by Alex and Brett Harris

I am creating…

A book that I've been praying for 5 years about writing
(Falling In Love With Jesus).

One of my favorite things…
The Lord's blessing of growing up in a fantastic Christian family!
I will be ever so sad to leave them! :-(

For education this week…

Studying and preparing hard for the ACT test
(coming up THIS SATURDAY!!!!!! ahhhh!).

A keeper at home skill I am learning/using...
I think I'm going to try to eat a little healthier.

A spiritual lesson I'm learning...
Letting my light shine before men,
as my mom reminds me before I go to work.
I've had the opportunity to invite some coworkers
to church and have even been able to witness to one!

A godly character trait I plan to work on…
Staying in prayer and more Bible studying.

Scripture I am memorizing…
"Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men,
him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
But whosoever shall deny me before men,
him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth:
I came not to send peace, but a sword.
For I am come to set a man at variance against his father,
and the daughter against her mother,
and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me:
and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
He that findeth his life shall lose it:
and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it."
Matthew 10:32-39

I'm praying for…
The Lord's guidance through my life;
His strength (physically & spiritually) while I'm working;
For wisdom about this upcoming move;
For His provision for college;
Also praying that He sends more missionaries to
the much needed country of Greece and the rest of the world.

For the rest of the week…
Working full time at Chick-Fil-A (getting paid again this week!!);
packing up my things for the move;
making a list of things to get for college;
studying online/reading ACT & taking the test Saturday;

responding to some letters, comments, and email
spend extra time with my wonderful Savior;
and whatever else the Lord sees fit to send my way.

A picture I'm sharing...
The passover meal we ate as a family...

It was a delicious reminder of what Christ did for us.
I really enjoyed observing passover this year with the family!!

Have a great week!
