My Birthday and thoughts

Hello everyone!

Today is my 19th birthday and I thought I would share with you all my thoughts on this new year that is coming!

I still can't believe where I am and where the Lord has put me! I never thought that I would be 19 years old and I never thought that I would have learned about the Lord and been used by the Lord as much as He has used me and I have learned about our amazing God! In such a short time as my life has been as many tell me I have seen the Lord work miracles. He saved me two years ago and it was a life changing experience. He asked me to totally change my life style and how I viewed things because I had become His child!

I have seen Him save many of my friends and other families by His grace and I have seen Him save my family over the years. Never have I been so joyful than I had ever been after I was saved by Jesus Christ!

I am so thankful for this new year of life and I am so thankful to know as I was reminded in church and by friends on Resurrection Sunday that Eternity starts now! Once we are saved we are living life for eternity! We need to be living our daily lives with eternal purpose, which is shown to us by the Lord. I have not figured out exactly what He wants me to be doing next year, but I have a calling as a daughter and as a sister and as a friend! I know that the Lord wants me to futher His kingdom by my example, although I fail at this so many times each day! :)

So ladies please don't get discouraged and remember that the Lord will give you joy and purpose by His Word and His people being an example to you. The Lord is amazing!

I also wanted to share with you all a new feature that I have added to my blog. I thought I would add on the side bar each week what I am studying for music. I intended for my blog to be mostly about music, but it has turned into a blog about just about everything that goes on in myself and my families lives. :) But there you can see what I am doing with my music studies for His glory. As the name of my blog says singing in His name! I love doing that and playing the piano for Him.
I will leave you with a verse that encouraged me today.
2 Corinthians 4:5-6 " For what we proclaim is not ourselves but Jesus Christ as Lord with ourselves as servants for Christs sake. For God who said," Let the light shine out of the darkness," has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ!"

I pray that we all will shine for Christ and not ourselves, having eternal purpose in all we do!

I pray you all have a marvelous day celebrating His resurrection and celebrating that the Lord is our God!
God bless!

Happy, happy birthday! What a blessing it is to read about the marvelous works of God in your life! May 19 be a very blessed year for you. It was a blessed year for me - I got married when I was 19, which was a life changing event in and of itself. May the Lord continue to use you as a sweet witness for Him! Your blog is such a blessing!

Awesome! Happy Birthday!
I hope your 19th year is your best one yet! ;)

Allison Elizabeth ♥

BTW, this is just an idea, but I would be very interested to read your testimony, should you decide to post about it. :)

Allison I have never actually thought about posting my testimony as this blog started out as a projects, music, and fashion/clothing blog. But now I feel I may post more about my walk with the Lord even more. I will pray about it and get back to you on that. As I have not given my testimony before I would love to! God bless Allison!

Sarah wow being married at only 19! I feel that I am not ready, having not learned or grown spiritually as much as I think I should to be married. But I know the Lord's timing is perfect! God bless you as well and your blog is an inspiration and blessing to me as well! I love reading about your life as a wife and mother for His glory! :)
