From the palms of California to the pines of Georgia

I wanna start this off by saying  HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Elias! :) You've given me a tall order to fill, but I'll do my best. I hope your day is the best! Don't eat to much cake! ;) Lol! Jk

Wondering why Elias is telling himself Happy Birthday? He ain't! :D Yes I said "ain't!" He's handed the reins to me for a day. As this is my first attempt at writing a blog I'm not sure how well it turns out.

As the title states, I'm from Georgia (pronounced Jorju :D) so I'm gonna answer a few questions from some folks in Cali. Btw, I went to PCC with my youth group and we all that it hilarious that most ppl would start singin "Georgia On My Mind" when they past us. It was awesome! Anyway, on to the questions...

  1. Is Ga all grass? Lol! No, that's Florida. We have huge trees that are 12' tall or taller!
  2. Is Conyers (my hometown) more city or country? Hm...that's a good one. I'd have to say it's probably equal parts of both. Although you don't really see farms unless you're on the outskirts of Conyers. There is a few in the heart of the city, but not many.
  3. What kind of animals do you see most? Lol! We'd be here all night if I put down all of them. Not that I could if I wanted to. We mostly see squirrels, raccoons, deer, birds, chipmunks which are hilarious to watch, and a whole bunch more that are of the dangerous variety.

Well, that's about it so I hope y'all enjoyed my rambling and I hope I met your expectations, Elias. :)
Oh, I do have one more thing I wanna give to you to think about and that's this. I have proof that the Apostle Paul was a southerner! :D Don't believe me? Well, here it is!

Romans 1:8
First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world.

Need more proof?

I Thessalonians 1:2
We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers.

Well, there ya have it! All the proof you need! Lol!

Y'all have a wonderful and blessed day!

Young and in a Rush! (First Things First)

Good Morning!!!!!!!!!!

This has been a short week, hmm wonder why? lol Hope everyone had a great Fourth. I know I did. Hey Jennifer, I would watch fireworks from my roof too, but there aren't any fireworks close by. lol :(

I kinda felt like reminding the younger folks this morning, myself included, about the big picture.

So as young people, we have so many questions we want answered now. All of us want to be at that "Arrived" state of being. Career, married, Home-Owner, etc. Some of us even worry about it (If were honest). Just a heads up, things don't always go according to plan. Some of us think we have it all planned out. Life really is quite the journey. Goals are great and keep at them but leave room for error and don't be overly hard on yourself. Sometimes were referred to as the "me" generation. However, if your living for God, your not all about yourself. We should have a mentality of that of a servant. Letting go of OUR will and earnestly seeking GOD'S will. Ultimately TRUSTING in him.





WHAT WILL I EAT?!! (My main concern ;) )

All these questions swirling around, always on our mind. Here it is....

Matthew 16:33 "But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

First things first! So what's first in our lives? The things of God. Don't put it last or somewhere in the middle, and expect the same result. This is a promise. "God is not a man that he may lie." Numbers 23:19 His promises are yes and amen.

Isaiah 55:11"So shall my word be that goes forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it."

Give your life to God and allow him to place you on the potter's wheel. Mold you into HIS vessel. The thought of being God's vessel, should just about motivate anyone. Were not laying up treasures here on Earth but in Heaven. Everything else(Insert questions and concerns) WILL fall into place.  "Lord I give myself away".

First things first :)

Have a good day
