My Life Theme Verse:
"How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word. With my whole heart I have sought You; Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments! Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You. Blessed are You, O LORD! Teach me Your statutes."
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
I know it may seem unusual and against pop culture, but I am totally sold out for Jesus Christ. This means that the entire desire of my heart is to please my heavenly Father in every way. I believe in the uncompromised, compassionate gospel of Jesus Christ and that our lives on this earth have a divine purpose. The life that I have in Jesus is one that has guaranteed a life of success. I can honestly say that I have never used drugs, drunken alcohol, and was able to live a pure life as a virgin until marriage. All of which was not possible without the convictions and guidance of my Savior.
I gave my life to Christ at an awesome youth conference called Ã¢Acquire The FireÃ¢ when I was 15 years old and was forever changed. I did not grow up in church and my parents are divorced. Therefore, religion was never forced down my throat nor was it an expectation of those who had substantial influence in my adolescent life. In fact, statistically, I wasnÃ¢t supposed to make it successfully. It was a face-to-face encounter with God himself that lead to my decision to serve Him.
I do, however, admit that it is not an easy journey. In fact, I have experienced the greatest pain from people who do not understand my standards in life (even from persons closest to me). Adult peer pressure exists just as much as adolescent peer pressure.
Nevertheless, I am a woman of virtue and integrity. I say what I believe and believe what I say. My greatest "pet-peeve" is someone who lies and thrives on a false image of themselves. So, I am not pretentious and strive to not be a hypocrite in any way. When I do make mistakes, I admit them and apologize even at the risk of being extremely embarrassed (right is right and wrong is wrong).
As a principled woman, you will never see promiscuous photos, vulgar status updates and inappropriate language on my FaceBook page. That is not who I am. I believe certain things are for my husband's eyes only.
I sincerely have a heart for others and care so much for people. I forgive easily and love hard. This is my greatest strength and is sometimes my greatest weakness. When the wrong person realizes this fact, they tend to abuse it; and I have been hurt because of it. But, I do have a quiet strength and am not a weak minded person. Many people say I am wise for my age and have an "old soul."
I am extremely independent and am not afraid of doing what is right, even if it is not popular and even if I loose material things and relationships in the process. At the end of the day, I know that it is impossible to do good and fail. The good guy always wins in the journey of life and I have so much more life to live and so many more people to help.
