It's so beautiful.

We have been having good church lately! I'm thankful that God knows what we need, right when we need it.

Last week Jen sent me a picture from service two Sunday's ago.
She said, "Look, wasn't service just amazing last night".

And as I was looking at this picture, of people praying in the altar. Those people were just reaching out and responding to what God was doing.

I thought, wow.

It's so beautiful! Just seeing God working and touching people. Seeing people just hungry for God and just wanting Him do something in their life. Does something to my heart.

God has a divine purpose for every service. He has something for each and everyone one of us. We can get what we need out of every service. All we have to do is let God have his way, and reach for what He has for us!

What's really important.

I don't even know what to say.........Ummm, Sorry? Lol

I know, I know. It's been forever! I just haven't had the time to blog.
Aww my poor neglected blog... Shame Trin, shame!

But I have something big to tell y'all. Okay, well I just went on a phone fast. I know it's crazy! Especially for me, I did it for a whole week.  It was so hard! I got through it though. Oh my word! I even started to use myself in the third person. Haha I was just losing it. 
But I'm glad I did it! I'm back to normal now. Lol.

You're probably wondering why I did it. Huh? Well there are multiple reasons why I did it. The main one was that it was wasting a lot of my time. I could have been doing more important things.
 I was always going to sleep too late texting/talking. I would be super tired in the morning, that at school I couldn't focus on my work. And It's especially hard to focus when your staring at a screen for hours with silence just reading. When someone was talking to me at home, I would just tune them out. I would not even notice they were talking to me. I was just on it too much. I wasn't doing anything wrong, it's just that my eyes were always glued to that screen!

(Someone told me "Trin just stop having friends like me, it's easier that way"). Haha I thought about that, but I just couldn't Lol.

So, it was hard to come to conclusions, but I realized that I needed a break. Something in me was stirring about what was most important. I realized that the phone wasn't that important. The eternal things are most important.

I don't know, but I just feel that a lot of young people are getting too distracted on the phone. I'm not saying it's bad to use, but when you are using it 24/7 there needs to be a break. When all your time is being occupied on that little device, and you're not doing anything for God. There's problem. This has just been on my heart.
How much I limit God with my own mind. We need vision, and we'll get that through prayer.

I don't want to be to busy or too distracted for God's work and His kingdom. All this technology, the gadgets, and the fast paced society. Are they limiting us, distracting us? Even calling the shots for us? I don't want to be swept away in the currents of the world. I do wonder though, what would happen if some young men would put down the video games for a bit and reach out to God? What would happen if some young ladies stopped what they were doing and called upon the Lord out of a sincere hunger and desire for more of Him?

I really feel that us young people can have an amazing Apostolic revival if we would just put the phone aside for a bit and reach out to God. If we could just stop being so busy and so distracted and seek God on a deeper level. I feel like something would break, the spirit of God would fall in a way we've never seen. For a 16 year old, I've heard stories and looked back at things that happened in the Bible. God hasn't changed! He still has that same power and his miraculous presence is still out there. But if we are becoming too distracted, and we don't put God first. I feel like we will never get to that place.

The things of God are the most important. If the phone is becoming a problem in your life. Cut it off. Sometimes we tend to hold on to things and we think they are good, but what little do we know is that it can slowly kill us spiritually. We have a business to take care of, the things of God. I don't want to be too distracted that I take my focus off Him. I don't want to get side tracked. I want more! Jesus, help us to keep you the main priority in our life and in our hearts.

Matthew 6:33

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

On Course youth Confrence

On Course 2017 was just bomb! I went expecting and God moved. There was such a deep move of God in the services. The preaching, singing, and fellowship was so right and so wonderful! This conference was a real blessing. I needed it. Lots of laughs and just good clean fun! I really haven't laughed that hard in a while. Or stayed up that late. I'm so thankful for good saints of God. I'm thankful for the hearts that were stirred, lives that were changed, and for God's presence that filled the place. God is so good! :)

I'll put up pictures soon. I don't have the time right now!

Think on these things...

If you're having some thought trouble today, remember to think on the right things!

"Finally, Brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."
Philippians 4:8

Right around the corner!

Hey y'all!

There has been so much going on lately! With school assignments and church. I've been so busy! Plus everything is going by so fast. It's already March and On Course is just around the corner!

Time fly's!

I just wanted to say that I am really excited for On Course!
I am really looking forward to this conference. And no, not just because of the fellowship. (Of course, I'm excited to see all my friends! I miss them so much!) It's just the things God has done at this Conference that's making me excited.

Both the good, clean fellowship and powerful moves of God are things you can always count on there. If you have been to this conference you know you leave feeling so refreshed, renewed, and full of faith. Miracles have happened and people have got what they needed at this conference. I'm so thankful for this. It truly is a life changing conference.

Last year God did some mighty things! My sister a week or two before On Course sprang her foot and had to wear a boot for 6 weeks. It was defiantly a change and struggle for her to walk in. The last night of On Course God moved and she was healed! (Praise God!)
Another Sister from our church has had a bad back pain for years. She was faithful to the house of God and has been prayed for many times, but has returned to her pew feeling the same way. The last night of the conference she was healed! God is good! There has been other stories where God has done wonderful things! A lot of us have left renewed and changed.

You know, a lot of us young people take these conferences for granite. We complain that there's not enough, that we need more. It's kind of funny. But these conferences that we want so much more of,  back then they did not use to have a lot of these. They didn't have good conservative conferences that would put you in place. These good people of God do a lot. These conferences aren't free, they cost! I'm thankful for people who have the vision to put something like this together.

I'm going to On Course with expectations. God is going to do a work!  

I'm just so thankful that when I go to a conference and start looking around at all the good saints of God, it makes me feel so encouraged! I am not alone! We have such a big family! And when we all get in one mind and one accord, anything can happen. I just want to be apart of what God's going to do!

Trin out! (JK haha! That just sounded funny) Lol

God's presence

This song has just been on my mind lately.

In the presence of Jehovah

God Almighty, prince of peace.

Troubles vanish, hearts are mended.

In the presence of the King.

It's so true. There's just something about God's presence that makes you feel new. If you haven't had a good day today or if your problems just seemed to get in the way of everything. I encourage you, to get in the presence of God. God's presence is so strong. It really can fix anything. I don't know why, but that part in the song really just gets to me.

 "Troubles vanish, hearts are mended. In the presence of the King."

God just let's all your troubles disappear! All the things you've been tangled up in, He can loosen it.  God's presence does miraculous things. He can put back together broken homes, mend broken hearts, and turn sorrow to joy! If more people could just realized how powerful it is their lives would be so much better. Because It's just that feeling. After I've had a long day, and just felt tired and worn out.  I stepped into the presence of God, and chains broke and my heart felt free again.   I'm so thankful for that feeling.

It just puts joy in my heart to know that God is always there. That if we feel down or depressed that we can go to Him in prayer and he gives us just what we need. You know, the world doesn't have that. They don't have someone they can call on when they're in need or in trouble. I'm so thankful that we have that. That when there's no one else,  Jesus will be there!
