I Did It!!

    I am officially graduated from high school! June 12, 2016. I have completed 12 years of homeschooling with my mom and wonderful siblings. I wouldn't trade it for anything! It's been a long journey with lots of twists and turns, dips and ruts, mountains and valleys. It has been difficult at times, but, as always, it was worth it. I'm not positive of God's plan for my life, but I know it will be good. It will be a plan of good and not evil, a plan to prosper and not to harm me, for a hope and future. He is good, and He is good to me.

   I want to encourage you all to press onwards. "I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." Phil 3:14. He is your ultimate goal. No matter what you are doing, have done, or will do, you can still honor Him with your life. No act of obedience is too small or large, no challenge too simple or extravagant. Everyone must take the next step no matter the difficulty. If you fall, get up, and move on. Always keep moving toward the call of Christ Jesus.


    My next step is a summer internship with my youth camp. I won't be here until nearly August. So in the meantime, may God bless you all and keep you in His loving arms.
Love,
Emily

Enjoy!

I saw the four points in this candle and immediately saw the message. Here is the improved version.

A New Look At This Beautiful Life

By now you have probably noticed the new look to my blog. 
I have to say that I really like it. 
My little sister, Amy, asked if she could redesign my blog. 
So, while Mom and I went to figure what I have to finish up for high school (ahhhh!), she redesigned to her heart's content! Well done, Sissy!
While we were out, I told my mom that even though I only have about a month and a half left, graduation is not coming as a shocking change.
 I like big dramatic events to be, well, big and dramatic... like me. :) 
So when things simply dwindle off and eventually end, it's not as exciting. Not as significant. 
Yet every change in our life is significant. How do we handle them without going crazy? 
Simply go with it. 
The truth is, you cannot control everything in your life now, and you never will. You will never get to the day that you have everything under control. 
So just breath! Look around, and ask God to open your eyes to the beautiful life He has blessed you with. 
And if you can't see the beauty of your life, believe in the beauty of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. Ask Him into your heart, and He will show you the beauty of your life.
You are never forsaken or abandoned. 
You are never forgotten.
You are forever treasured and loved for who you are.
No matter the ugly that you have seen or done, God still has a beautiful plan for you.
God bless and be with you!
Emily
