Life is CRAZY!!!

I have so much to do and no matter how hard i work i feel like i never accomplish anything. I'm always tired and just want a nap!
(For example...tonight i was SO excited b/ci thought i would be in bed by 9:30...10:00 at least...but it is now 12:00am and I still have to study for a latin quiz. All of this was b/c of my stupid computer and b/c i can't understand computers and i am trying to format, finish writing, and print this crazy paper due tomorrow that I have been working on ALL WEEK!)

I could really use your prayers. I don't want to lose sight of what's really important and not prioritize well. I don't want to forget about the things that really know?

Please Pray.

thank you!

Crazy Days...Exciting Days

"Behold, God is my helper; the Lord is the upholder of my life." Psalm 54:4

Learning to balance and enjoy life at the same time...while relying on the promises of God.

We had a really neat sermon last sunday on Isaiah 55 and how God's desire is not only to save us but to save and satisfy us. It was really neat...and super encouraging.

Sad Day


It might be because I feel yucky, have a headache, and have to write two papers that i feel so...hhmmm, sad :( But i miss them so much! and I miss my house, and my room, and my mom's FOOD!!!

Arise, My Soul, Arise

1. Arise, my soul, arise,
shake off your guilty fears;
The bleeding sacrifice,
in my behalf appears;
Before the throne my Surety stands,
Before the throne my Surety stands,
My name is written on His hands.

Chorus: Arise (arise), arise (arise), arise
Arise, my soul, arise.
Arise (arise), arise (arise), arise
Arise, my soul, arise.
Shake off your guilty fears and rise

2. He ever lives above,
for me to intercede;
His all redeeming love,
His precious blood, to plead;
His blood atoned for every race,
His blood atoned for every race,
And sprinkles now the throne of grace.

3. Five bleeding wounds He bears;
received on Calvary;
They pour effectual prayers;
they strongly plead for me:
"Forgive him, O forgive," they cry,
"Forgive him, O forgive," they cry,
"Nor let that ransomed sinner die!"

4. The Father hears Him pray,
His dear anointed One;
He cannot turn away
the presence of His Son;
The Spirit answers to the blood,
The Spirit answers to the blood
And tells me I am born of God.

5. My God is reconciled;
His pardoning voice I hear;
He owns me for His child;
I can no longer fear
With confidence I now draw nigh,
With confidence I now draw nigh,
And "Father, Abba, Father," cry.
