My cousin Kari (The one to the left in the picture) is one of my bestest friends! We are one month apart and have been best friends since we were born! I love her so much! We are very silly together!!! As the picture above shows! We are probably how a lot of cousins are when together!  Hahaha She has a very charismatic, funny personality and I ..... well I'm very silly, weird, random and I laugh at anything! So put us together and you get dynamite!! Were usually the ones getting the weird looks from everyone!

Devotional by Ruth Bell Graham

     A couple months ago my mom bought a billy graham movie. Which I thought was just gonna be another documentary about billy graham's life. BUT It wasn't. It was an actual movie of billy's life. Well at at least the early years. It was really cool to be able to learn more about billy's life and to watch it in movie form! 
       His wife Ruth Bell Graham was a great woman of God! She wrote lotssss of books! My mom had gotten some of here books out of the library. One of the books she got out is letters from Ruth's attic. It's a devotional. So I wanted to share with you all one of the devotions!
                                              Day 1
                   Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, 
                   and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.- Hebrew 12:1

                                Traveling Light
   The Christian life is like climbing a mountain. For some people the climb is a gently sloping ascent; for other people the climb is like attacking the north face of the Eiger.
Christian Rossetti wrote:
         "Does the road wind uphill all the way?
          Yes, to the very end.
          Will the day's journey take the whole long day?
          From morn to night, my friend."

Whether our climb is easy or difficult, we need to be in shape spiritually and to travel light. To be in shape spiritually, we need spiritual nourishment and exercise. We need to spend less time reading about the bible and spend more time studying the bible. Then we need to apply what we learn-carefully and vigorously-to our lives, to live out daily  what we have taken in.
  To travel light, we need to lighten our loads. Some of us may need to trim off excess weight. Others of us have too many social involvements and too many meetings to attend. (remember the caution: "Beware of the barrenness of a busy life.")
    When the disciples were sent out two by two, they traveled light- "without purse, bag or sandals" (Luke 22:35, NIV).
     Times change, situations vary, and God's orders to his followers are individualized. But the need and the message continue the same-and the goal. It's up to us to be in shape and to travel light.

 Prayer for the day:
Father, please reveal the things that prevent me from fully obeying Your call. 
Thank You for guiding me as I drop these weights from my life.

Here are some pictures of Ruth. =) 

                                                      Billy Graham and Ruth Graham
                                                     Here's Ruth in her younger days.
                                                       This one was more recent.
                                              They were married 64 years the year Ruth died.
              I'd encourage you to watch the movie and also read some of her books!
               God's girl! =)

A song to share :)

     One of my favorite bands is Chris Tomlin!! Also recently I've started listing to Christy Nockels and I just LOVE her! Haha I also just have a heart for worship, I've realized! So when I found passion the band I fell in love with them!
                This song has been out for a year but I wanted to share it because I just REALLLLLLY like it! haha =) I hope you are blessed by it!
    Oh and here is a post that someone posted on this video that is on youtube. I thought it was encouraging!-
                People of GOD, Remember to Pray for the people around you who needed prayers. Pray also for those who have not trust in CHRIST so that one day they could trust in HIM for everyone is born to give Praises to God. Like what the song said," Like the rising sun that shines, From the darkness comes a light" that means that GOD would always be with you forever and ever. Even if u had passed on, GOD will never leave u behind for he loves you!

God bless and have a great day!
Your blogger friend Amber~God's girl!<3
