Outlet = one hour of student lead worship in the multipurpose room (MPR) of the student memorial center (SMC...pronounced smack...not S.M.C)...this occurs every Monday night from 9-10pm

It is a great time to lay everything before God right at the beginning of the week...
This Monday the worship leader played a very familiar song, it made me think of home, it made me feel at home...

it went a little something like this:

we want to see your kingdom come
and light up the darkness here
make us your instruments of love to bless the world
fill us up so love will overflow
your kingdom come to earth
and light up the darkness here

(P.S. it's The Bridge Band)

Right Timing…

My rainbow moment (time when God reminds you he is there and he keeps his promises) of the week.

God amazes me.

Last week I was so drained.

I felt like a failure…

This is an unfamiliar feeling for me, but I truly thought I was failing at everything I put my hand to.

I walk around putting a lot of pressure on myself and it was finally too much to handle.

I went to church feeling beaten down and hopeless.

Then we entered into an amazing time of worship.

Every song hit me like a tons of bricks, I had been holding on to things that God just wanted me to lay at his feet.

As I stand in the back of the room, tears flooding down my face we sang:

(“The Stand” Hillsong)

You stood before creation
Eternity in Your hand
And you spoke the earth into motion
My soul now to stand

You stood before my failure
And carried the cross for my shame
My sin weighed upon your shoulders
My soul now to stand


(“Might to Save” Hillsong)

So take me as You find me
All my fears & failures
Fill my life again

I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender (I surrender)

It’s amazing how our Heavenly Father knows just when to reach down and give us a rainbow.

Simply Me

So here is my idea...
Before I want to share my thoughts, I want people to know me. So starting now and once a week, I'm going to share a fact about my life (until we are sort of up to speed).
My life through important events...
  • I as born, 21 years ago, into a family consisting of dad, mom, two older brothers [Micah & Isaac].
  • When I was 4, we moved from the mainline (where my parents had there woodworking shop) to Downingtown.
  • The second month of second grade, I moved back down to first grade. I have trouble reading. Talk about some cruel kids.
  • Next years were crazy kid, young teen years.
  • My junior year of high school is when I really started to develop my love for learning and a good challenge.
  • That same year a rough time hit my family, leaving our home and possessions left in ashes...[more to come of this story]
  • Summer before college I started dating Troy. An awesome man of God, I have known since childhood.
  • That fall, it was off to Millersville University to start my college career.
Next time I will start with College and go into more detail...

My Life

I’m a lot of things to a lot of different people…

I’m a daughter and a sister,

A niece and an aunt,

A girlfriend and a friend,

A treasurer and a dance leader,

A student, roommate, co-worker…

And above all else a daughter of the most high God.

Although I am different things to different people I try to be the same person wherever I go, and with whomever I’m with.

This is me, plain and simple…
