Reeses and I - The Waiting Game

Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!
                                                                                                                                       Psalm 27:13

I always prayed to God about getting a puppy. I never gave up even after a few years had passed by, I just kept thanking Him in advance. Then one day we got a call that this young lady was selling Chihuahuas. So my mom and I went to her house and picked out our puppy, we even named him. We couldn't bring him home yet, because he had not been weaned from his mother. We had to wait a few weeks to bring our new puppy home.
The lady called us a week after we had been there and said that we could get our puppy. My mom and I knew that it was too early to bring him home and she only wanted the money. So my mom told her we wouldn't be getting the puppy, it was just too early to bring home.
I was so close to getting a puppy, but I didn't get upset. I just started thanking God for a puppy for our family. A couple more years past and one day when my mom was at work one of her co-workers was talking about a woman she knew that was giving away mix breed puppies. My mom’s friend was disappointed that she had not gotten one. My mom was like “I wish you told me about them”. The co-worker called the woman to see if there were any puppies left and there was one still there. Two days later my mom and her friend went to pick up the puppy at the woman’s house. I got my new mix breed (Beagle & Chihuahua mix) and I named him Reeses. He has light and dark brown fur like a Reeses butter cup. The main message I’m sharing here is never give up on your prayers. After you pray start thanking God and have patience. I know it won’t be easy but just trust God and you will get your prayers answered.
I still thank God for blessing me with Reeses, I never stop thanking Him. We should always be thankful for our blessings, even before we actually get them!

This blog post has been festering lately.  I have lots to say, but don't know how to say it.  Mainly, I want to say it with grace and conviction.  I worry that I won't do that properly, but I feel like this needs to be shared.

I don't support teen dating because I was a teen dater.
I wish it …


I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.
Psalm 139: 14

Self-Confident: believe in oneself or one's own abilities
In one's own powers, judgment, etc.

In everything we do, we should have confidence in ourselves. God builds us up to love ourselves and to know that everything we do He gave us the gift to do it. Don’t allow anyone to put you down and say things like, you will never accomplish anything in life. Or you are just wasting your time. Nobody is going to see any good in that. In spite of what people say about you, you need to know you can do anything you set your mind to do. Have confidence in yourself and knock down all the negative things that come your way.

Hold your head up high and allow people to see what God sees in you. Don’t walk in fear wondering about where life will take you in the future. Live for today and God will help you with the rest. Treat yourself right and own your lif…
