i guess im gonna start this again.

i just love blogging. its insane, really.

anyways, the girls group went really well tonight. it ended up being me, christine and kelsey. we were talking a lot about some of the cattiness that can go on in the church. for example, some people are annoyed at the fact that we are starting a smallgroup. i guess because weve only been in true life for 6 months means that we cant initiate change? i dont really understand it, but it honestly does kind of hurt my feelings to know that my “sisters” are not very supportive. i didnt expect anything different though. this is the type of thing i want to change. the cattiness, the judgementalness. its so annoying and seems almost instinctual. it doesnt have to be this way. and frankly, i dont answer to those people. I know im doing what Im supposed to be doing… and no one is going to stop me. Christine feels the same way. Anyway, we are looking in to do habitat for humanity, and volunteering at “A Woman’s Place”.  Im so excited to get out there and just. love people. 

Im excited for the possibility of getting this job. It seems almost too perfect. Exactly what I want to do. Its amazing how my life seems to be coming together. Its amazing to look at myself a few months ago, look where my head was. where my heart was. i was ready and willing to give up. But God spoke to me through this passage & that kept me going.

    “ O you afflicted one,
      Tossed with tempest, and not comforted,
      Behold, I will lay your stones with colorful gems,
      And lay your foundations with sapphires. 
      I will make your pinnacles of rubies,
      Your gates of crystal,
      And all your walls of precious stones. 
      All your children shall be taught by the LORD,
      And great shall be the peace of your children. 
      In righteousness you shall be established;
      You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear;
      And from terror, for it shall not come near you. 
      Indeed they shall surely assemble, but not because of Me.
      Whoever assembles against you shall fall for your sake. 
      “ Behold, I have created the blacksmith
      Who blows the coals in the fire,
      Who brings forth an instrument for his work;
      And I have created the spoiler to destroy. 
       No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
      And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
      You shall condemn.
      This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,
      And their righteousness is from Me,”
      Says the LORD.

                            -Isaiah 54:11
