Hey everybody, I know it's been a verrry long time, but I have been very busy and forgot all about my little blog. :(

I just attended the TeenPact Washington state class and it was my second time going.( For those of you who have never gone, you are really missing out.) I learned a ton this week and one of the things that really struck deep was getting rid of the idols in your life. I tend to make idols out of a lot of things. And lately my most recent idols were pictures of artists and superstars plastered everywhere in my closet. It was almost like my little sanctuary. I would just go in there and gaze at them, and wish I could be like them and wish I could meet them. My bible was forgotten and I didn't really want to talk to God. I felt really convicted one night when the guest directer Steve Crum talked about getting rid of the idols in your life for the night devotion. I realized that I had been putting things that won't last before an eternal God. I also realized that if I wanted to grow closer to God and be more like him I had to get rid of those pictures and spend the time I would have spent looking at them with him. He deserved way more time than no time at all or a couple minutes here and there throughout the week. He needed my focus to be on him throughout the entire day. When I got back, I threw away the pictures in my closet and instead  put up inspiring quotes that I had taken while I was at TeenPact. I have felt so free, and have enjoyed spending at least 45 minutes of my day reading his word and he feels so close to me now.  And it's not like I am finding time to read his word but not really enjoying it and it's kind of blah. Everyday I want to spend time with him. My favorite part of my day is reading his word and praising him. He is so faithful and he never gives up on any of us. Let me tell you. getting rid of the idols in my life was totally worth it. So I have a challenge for you. Find out what the idols in your life are. Get rid of them. And see where God takes you. A friend of mine shared this verse with me and it is so true. It has become one of my favorite passages. 

"If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are of above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you  also will appear with him in glory."

I am going to miss Jimmy Brazell . Although I only knew him a short while, he is one who is going to be remembered forever. He truly lived life to the fullest and glorified God in all he did. He inspired a lot of people including me and never stopped encouraging.

Rapunzel: We made it.
Flynn Rider: Her hair glows!
Rapunzel: We're alive. We're alive!
Flynn: I didn't see that coming.
Rapunzel: Eugene.
Flynn: The hair actually glows.
Rapunzel: Eugene.
Flynn: Why does her hair glow!
Rapunzel: Eugene!
Flynn: [almost in hysteria] What?
Rapunzel: It doesn't *just* glow.
Flynn: Why is he smiling at me?

love this

“I’m looking for a book… something that can help me deal with what might be an awkward situation. Something funny might be nice, but not necessarily big, ‘ha, ha, ha,’ ‘laugh, laugh, laugh’ funny, and certainly not make-fun-of-other-people funny but rather something human-funny. And, uh, if it could uh, sneak up on you, surprise you, and at the same time make you think that what you thought wasn’t only right, in a wrong kind of way, but when you’re wrong, there’s a certain rightness in your wrongness… Well, what I mean is, more importantly, I’m looking to be swept up! And at the same time, not.”

—Marie from Dan in real life

Beautiful King,
has anybody seen
Your glory unfold?
You walk up to me
with sparks in Your eyes,
You brighten my world

And You'll always be my only One.
You're the only God I'll ever love

Every word that you say
wields the beauty of angels.
Every smile is arrayed
with a joy like wedding bells.
It's my heart you hold.
Of your mystery I sing.
I will stand and behold
my Beautiful King

Love of my soul,
with power untold,
who is like you?
Lamb that was slain,
my God, You reign
in victory and truth.

And I'll follow You all my days.
And I'll give to You every single thing.
I hand everything over...

Every word that You say
wields the beauty of angels.
Every smile is arrayed
with a joy like wedding bells.
It's my heart You hold.
Of your mystery i sing.
I will stand and behold
my Beautiful King.

And time flies by.
We're not standing alone.
Every word that You say,
Father, let it be known.
I fall so fast
without You by my side.
Let Your beauty be seen
