Listening to preaching

So yesterday afternoon I was on my church's website and I listened to a message entitled "The path the devil can't see" and it brought tears to my eyes.
My pastor talked about finding a secret place. A place where we get alone with God, where it's just you and Him under His shadow. When you find that place no one can bother you, hurt you, or get to you. The devil can't distract you in that place. In that place you get what you need. God is a refuge, It's where we get answers. Where God can heal, mend, and change someone. And it just touched me and I found a place to pray.
(Click here to hear the message)

So I just want to encourage y'all to listen to preaching throughout the week! It's good and it helps to keep your mind on the things of God. It will encourage you, strengthen you, and draw you closer to Him.

Quick question!

Do these Crepes look good?
Because somebody who is like not even human told us they look disgusting.

Delicious #1

Heaven #2

Mmhhhhh #3

 So if you think they look gross, honestly they're really good!

This is how you make it:
First you get flour.

Then you do this.
(Okay for some reason the pic wouldn't crop. Lol)

And then you get a cup of it.

And pour it on the pan.

And then you let it cook and Wal-la! 

You got it?
Just kidding, hahaha. This is the actual recipe.

It tasted like a healthy/non healthy, dessert breakfast, pastry. Lol 
It's so simple and easy to make. Y'all have to try it!

Revival

The words to this song I recently learned, has been on my heart.


Revival is when
We take the time to pray.

Revival is when
We’re willing to obey.

Revival is when
We purify our minds.

And tear down the idols in our lives.

Father, can you hear our desperate cry?
There is a longing, only you can satisfy.

Revival, yes Revival.

Revival, comes from You. ♥

WCC pics

So this post is just going to be pictures from West Coast that I never posted. Lol I have a problem with doing things late, if you didn't notice. Haha



West Coast this year was the best! It's always been one of my favorite Conferences. There's nothing like the powerful preaching, anointed singing, and great fellowship that's always there. God touched many hungry hearts. He strengthened and encouraged a lot of us. I'm so glad I was apart of it!


 "The waterfall."

Half of "The waterfall."

A 30 degree angle of "The waterfall."

 First night, Cheesecake Factory.

I missed Catalyn so much! We had a blast catching up on things!

(Skipping ahead)

Me: Aww guys! Let's take our traditional picture!
Issac: Okay. (Takes a pic of me)
Me: No! I mean like all of us!
Issac: Yeah I know. (Takes another pic of me)

I'm like, No Issac! Oh my word!


 Well I ended up getting the picture. Haha

Here's Faith, I love this girl!


We haven't seen each other in a long time. So let's just say there was a lot of goofiness, embarrassment, and ummm, an accident behind the waterfall. Ahaha

Our friendship triangle!

Okay I'm just going to point it out...

I only have one shoe on. Lol


Us girls, and the "The waterfall!" Haha

Me and Harmy!
By the way, which filter looks better?


So we went to this disgusting Boba place after we ate and this was just our expressions. Lol

Okay I don't know why this picture got really big. Lol


Us girls.

Abby, my other blonde. Haha

Literally this night, was the most silliest, goofiest, funniest, and craziest time at Wcc. I think I really embarrassed myself. Haha

 Okay It was like 3 in the morning and I don't know what happened. We forgot how to take pictures or something?

"Ouch, my neck!"

 From left to right: Catalyn, Chloe, Abby, Me, and Harmony.

Us safely walking in the middle of the street! Haha


Awww.
And yes I only had one shoe on again. Lol

This proposal was literally the cutest!!



Funny story: Paul, Abby, and I were walking to the youth thing and Sahata's brother walked passed us and said something to Paul. And I wanted to congratulate him and stuff so I was like "Yeah, congrats! That was really good!" (Like all passionate and stuff)
And Him and Paul looked at me like "what did I just say?" And then I realized that wasn't Sahata.. that was his brother. Haha you had to be there!


Setting: Driving to Denny"s
Time: 3: something A.M
Sight: Dark
Smell: Car freshener
Sound: Hysterical laughs
Feel: Itchy

Most Apostolic cars at this exact time and day.

And that's about it.

You know how it ends, we come back tired and exhausted at 5 in the morning. Regretting why we went, but for some reason stay up, knowing we have to get up early. Typical Apostolics. Lol

And that is another reason I love WCC!

Less of me

So I just want to share something that's been on my mind. We had youth Friday night and my Pastor taught a lesson that just stuck to me. I'm not going to retell everything he said, but the focus was mainly on others. He said, we're so focus on ourselves and we don't realize it. We're focused on what we want to do in life. Our wants, our needs, our plans, our Jobs, our career, our spouse, etc. That we don't realize the condition of others. There are people and children who don't get a lot of love or attention. There are people living in a way worst situation and who may be hungry for God. There are sick people that need prayer, backsliders that are lonely and confused, new converts that need some time and attention. But if we're always so focused on our lives and what we are doing, we won't be sensitive enough to have God use us to help meet the needs of others. If we can just get our eyes off ourselves and focus on Jesus it would make a difference not only for us, but for others. When we get our eyes on Jesus He leads us to focus on others.

Just like that song, "Less of me and more of you is what I need." Less of us and more of Jesus is really what we need and Jesus is focused on the needs of human beings and is not willing that any should perish. If we could just get that, God can really use us. Because all some people need is time and attention. We can win people to God by showing that we care for them. That's really what people are looking for nowadays.

Philippians 2: 4 - Look not every man on his own things, but every man on the things of others.

I just want my prayer to be Jesus, help me not to focus on myself, but help me to focus on the things of others!

Happy New Years!

The words to this song have been on my mind:


To God, be the glory.

To God, be the glory.

To God, be the glory.

For the things He has done.


If you think about it, the last line really just puts the song all together. Give God glory for what He's done. I'm really thankful for the things I've seen God do this year. God's done great things!

God's answered prayers, He met needs. More people have been baptized this year. There's been growth in me and in the church. I've seen God bring new people and bring back old people and change them. People have drawn closer to God. A hunger and desire was evident in hearts of people. God has mended broken hearts, He's put broken homes back together, and He's changed peoples lives.
Just looking back in the year, God's done mighty things! We really have a lot to be thankful for. To God be the glory!

Merry 38th day after Christmas

Okay so here's my super duper extra late to the max Christmas post!
These are pictures we took on Christmas Eve, behind a tree. Lol

Sasha and Me, representing the real deal. Haha


Yeah, I know that the straw is supposed to go in my mouth. Lol We just wanted a better view of or drinks!

And I know what you're thinking, why did they take their pictures with Starbucks? Because we just really like Starbucks okay! (wipes a tear)

Haha I look like that face you make when you really want your friends drink, but it's hers. So you're just going to have to deal with it.

 "Want to have a Gulping contest? Sure!"
Said the dumb bubble heads from Oakley. Lol

Annnnnnnd,
I lost it!
Tip: Never try to have a gulping contest with a Frap.
Even if you think you got this, you really don't.
So save yourself the trouble and embarrassment!

Lol Now as you can see, the pics that were already shown have stories behind them. But the ones I'm about to show you really have no stories behind them and are just plain simple pictures. That are just boring to caption.

Like this,
 Cute picture.

 Sideways picture.

 Cool picture.

 Silly picture.

 Are we done yet picture.

Our backs, picture.

And a black and white picture.



But then we have pictures like this..
Where it's evident that there is a story behind it. And it's just more funny to caption. So if you're a faithful blog reader, you'll remember that last year I did a post just like this one.

Sasha had dislocated her knee, and was on crutches for 6 weeks. So we made a video where we're praying that she would be healed. (I don't know what was wrong with us) Lol

Well we decided to re-act it! Haha


And well it started to escalate. Lol

Then we realized how silly we probably looked and that we were in public.

 So we decided to look serious.

But then Sasha got blue.

 So we turned out backs and ended it like that.

Then we knocked out, and that's how it really ended. Lol

Thank you for reading. Goodnight. Merry Christmas! Sorry for the random ending.
