Encouragement: Florida teen wows judges on X Factor

Dear Readers

I've had this link in my email for it while now. Recently, the X Factor TV show has returned to NBC for an all-new season; as always, the show is in search of new talent in four categories, including boys, girls as well as the group. Judge Demi Lovato is in charge of mentoring the girls this year. Rion Paige is one special girl, not only because of her voice, but her inspirational my story. You see, she was born with curved hands because of the way her joints are and is virtually blind out of one eye. But she refuses to let that stop her from following their dreams. So far,Rion has survived the four chair challenge; she will definitely be one to watch out for in the future..

Sarah Young's "Jesus Calling"

Hello Everyone~

In my previous post, I explained the tireless journey that it took me to get a job. At first, I did my best to thank God for the opportunity on a daily basis; over time, it's newness wore off and a routine was put into its place.. I am happy to say that didn't last long!

Eventually, I recognized the error of my ways and wanted to find a way of reconnecting with God.. Jesus was, after all, though one responsible for granting the the blessing in the first place.. I had nothing to do with it.

As Christians, we have a tendency to become too involved in the affairs of this world and forget where our citizenship really lies. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying we shouldn't care about people. We should; God calls us to be "a light" in the midst of the darkness. Sarah Young's "Jesus Calling" is one of the audible books I've downloaded in an effort to restore and repair my spiritual relationship with Jesus. Each day, it gives me a reminder of how I am important in my Father's eyes.

I have always been His Child covered by Jesus and his Ultimate Sacrifice on the cross. But my relationship with him will always be a work in progress

That is, until he comes again and completes his final work in me!

A Note from the Career Girl

Dear Readers,

A little over three months have gone by since my last post; I'm happy to report that during that time, I've become gainfully employed. This isn't to say the process has been easy- as I've found it difficult to adjust to early morning schedules and long work days. Still, I wouldn't change a thing. Not only for the chance of a paycheck, but because I am making a difference with this stuff. I am producing on a daily basis...

Nothing could have prepared me for this stress that working could bring, though. In the beginning, I felt unstoppable- ready and willing to take on whatever task I've been given. Over time, things shifted. If I'm being honest, I think it's because I lost touch with WHO had blessed me with the job in the first place.

That being said, my advice is: Don't take for granted the opportunities that may come your way. Better yet, don't forget about the person who sent them.. Jesus cares about you!. He is deeply invested in your life as long as you allow it
