Welcome 2011

This is all new to me I have never blogged before. This year will be a year of a lot of firsts for me and should be very Blessed in all of my endeavors. I am a recently devoted Christian. I have found my conviction and my freedom with the love of Jesus Christ and the grace of God. For many years I have wondered in the darkness and never thought twice about all of the heartache that I had inflicted on my family and on myself. God has found me, cleansed me, and is working in me daily. Maybe through my journey someone else will find there way. This new year brings with it a renewed energy to push forward and do more. I am going this Saturday to help with a Food drive with a sister church and feel that it will be a blessing for all not just those receiving but for those of us that will be giving of our time. To be able to touch the lives of so many in the community is so amazing. I want to be able to touch lives daily.....I have been talking with my pastor and he explains and teaches me about my God more and more I thirst and hunger for more of him everyday. His words as I read the Bible put fire into belly as some would say but it warms me and inspires me. I cannot imagine how I have made it through my life with out God be foremost and number one. I can truly say that I may have existed for the last 29 years but today I am ALIVE!!!!!!!!! Amen praise God. 
This is January the 3, 2011 and many people have been making the same old resolutions but not me. This year I am living for God and I want to be closer to him and learn all that I can and do His work so that I can live the BLESSED life, not the good life or the high life but truly being Blessed. God says in John 16:33 "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye will have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." and in  Phillippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." So as for me I will have God leading my life and lighting my path so that i may dwell in his house for eternity. So I welcome this new year of my new life to learn and grow... I pray that each person who is struggling or has struggles through 2010 will find peace in the new year. 
Just a lil prayer for everyone.....
