Which Wolf Will You Feed?

  Hi Everyone!

  If you've been following my blog, you can see that I changed it up just a little. I have lables at the top for categorized posts and have updated my profile. All things for the better. And that's how life is. I'm about to start a new season of life, and so are a lot of my friends. All things for the better. That's life. You are in one season for a time, but rarely forever. In every season of your life, there will be some good. Find the good and enhance it.

 There is an old Cherokee legend that says this: 
There is a great battle going on inside each of us between two wolves. One wolf is Evil. He is anger, jealousy, hate, sorrow, self-pity, arrogance, lies, superiority, etc. The second is Good. He is joy, peace, light, goodness, hope, love, grace, mercy, etc.
Which one will win?
The one you feed. 

  Think about it. You will be either taken by Evil, or by Good. Choose today. It can't wait. 
God Bless!

About Me

Hi, my name is Emily. I am 18 and I'm a Christian. I live with my mom and dad. I have three siblings; Matthew, Michael, and Amy. The mission of this blog is to prove that you can dress inexpensively and modestly in an attractive way. But more importantly, to share the gospel. I hope I encourage you as I write. So, join me as I go about being a Teen for the Lord.

Stepping Forward

Saturday is my 18th birthday. I am in my senior year of high school, and I don't know for sure what I want to do! I have lots of interests but I haven't had any "ah-ha" moments about my divine calling in life. 
Guess what!
  I'm not worried!
 I'm not freaking out about what I'm going to do next. But I was last semester. So what happened?
 I took a step forward.
When you are stuck in a rut, you have to take a step forward. 
For me, it was as simple as signing up for dual enrollment classes with our community college. It wasn't a huge step, but I finally felt like I was getting somewhere. I was making progress in a tangible way. 
That's what God taught me over the summer.
Take the next step. 
Don't spend your time worrying about the far, distant future. Tomorrow will worry about itself. Worrying about it will only get you stuck deeper in your rut. 
Take the next step, what ever that may be. 
It may be cooking dinner. Changing a diaper. Potty training. High school. College. 
All you are asked to do is take a step every day and depend on God to keep you in the right path. 
     If you feel stuck... 
Take a running step forward!
God Bless!
