Thoughts on Thursday

*Disclaimer:  “Thoughts on Thursday” will not be a weekly thing, but since it is Thursday, and since I have a few thoughts, well…it just flowed nicely. 🙂

Thursday, July 30th, 2015

Today I truly realized how busy life can be.  Whatever busy means to you, of course.  To me busy means being away from home all day every day which is what this past week has been like.  But I also thought that even in the times when you are busy, so busy to even think so it seems, you are never to busy to talk to God, to help someone, to smile, to text your best friend a simple silly message, to use your manners, to stand up for what you believe in, or to try to enjoy your time being busy even when you don’t want to be.

The moon is almost 100% full tonight and it’s bright light is filling up my room!  I love the moon and the stars.  They are beautiful.

There are more thoughts I have, but tomorrow is a busy day, and I don’t want to think about the time, but living by time, in time, you think about time a lot.  Time.  Sometimes I wish time didn’t matter.  The good and most important thing is is that it doesn’t matter to God, the creator of all.

Thank you, Lord!

Have a wonderful weekend, and goodbye July! ❤

Creation Science Museum

My brothers, Joshua and Ben, and myself went to an Answers in Genesis conference, the Answers Mega Conference 2015, in Kentucky in June and it was wonderful!  It was a last minute thing for me; I wasn’t planning on going at first, but I am so glad and thankful that I was able to go.

Ken Ham and Answers in Genesis is an amazing organization.  What I enjoy most about them is how they share the truth.  The point blank truth, which is SO important!  I want to write a small post about each session we went to.  There were 4-6 different sessions each day and we were there for the whole conference which was four days, so we heard a LOT of stuff and definitely left with plenty to think about and so much to reflect upon.  For today I want to share some pictures from the beautiful Creation Science Museum in Kentucky and mainly the lovely garden they have there.  Enjoy!

Beautiful garden!  When we went last year it was raining outside and the garden wasn’t in bloom.  Look at it now though!

The AMAZING universe and the comparisons of God vs. Man’s word (God’s is right by the way, sorry).

This part of the museum is scary, but true.  I don’t like to walk through this part.

An inside look at an interpretation of what the ark “looks” like.

Miniature ark!  It’s so cute!  I am SO excited about the life sized ark Answers in Genesis is building (we got to go to the ark site; pics soon!)!

This is the real fossil of the Allosaurus (I hope I spelled that right).  It is a family member of the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

It was a great trip, and again, I’m thankful I could go.  I love the truth!  It makes so much sense and there is such an assurance in it and a peace in the truth.

Yesterday I had a wonderful talk with my sister, Skylar, who is still in Korea (The Miller’s are home for the summer.  PLEASE forgive me if I didn’t mention that on my blog!), and we talked for a long time and she mentioned Philippians 4:6-8 and then after we talked I saw, read, or heard that verse 3 more times, so I have taken that as a hint or a clue or a sign that God wants me to realize that truth of Philippians 4:6-8 and dwell on it.

“6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”  Philippians 4:6-8

Thank you for stopping by whether it was the first time or you are a revisiting visitor, I don’t know?!  Have a blessed day and enjoy the beauty around you even when there is darkness in this world and things don’t always go a okay.  Much love.

Independence (and rambling thoughts…)

Hello Blog!  How are you???  I say that as if my blog can speak.  Silly me.

Well, it has been a while since I’ve been on a nice blogging schedule and I have missed it so much.  My time lately has not been used well and I’ve been thinking much more then living and I can only say that it’s much better to live then to sit and ponder away!  I’ve let my thoughts wonder here and there and I have not kept my focus on God, but that is my goal.  I want more then anything to live each day acknowledging the Lord, my Creator and Savior because He deserves it 101%!  In my heart there is deep love for Him, but my life and actions haven’t shown that; or at least I don’t feel like they have.

No, nothing is wrong, I’m not doing anything “bad”, I just am in one of those extremely stuck places where you just don’t know what to believe or what to trust or where to go!  But I’ve realized that I need to believe the Bible and it’s truths, trust in Christ and Christ alone, and follow God through this life that He has given me; through this new life in Jesus Christ!  I need to realize everyday that I am made new.  The old has passed away; behold the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17).

So, that’s where I’ve been; stuck in my head! 🙂  I’ve taken so many pictures to post and have ad so many ideas for my blog and never did anything with them.  I hate that, but instead of thinking of all the things I didn’t do, I’m going to start by just doing it.  Just Do It.  I know Nike uses that as their motto, but it’s very true and I’ve kind of used that for my quote this year along with various anchor bible verses!  Just do it, Jenny!  Don’t be afraid!

Now I’m talking to myself.

It is July 4th, 2015.  I am very happy that I grew up in America which is a beautiful country in this world that God gave us back in 1620 to live in freedom and peace, and although today you never know what could happen in this country, or the world, I am still happy to have grown up in America.  God Bless America is a statement I say sincerely with all my heart.

There is something else I have figured out about myself.  I am having a hard time comprehending this.  If you are in Christ, meaning you asked Jesus to save you from your sins, you are not of this world.  This is something I know and have always known, but never really realized I guess.  Am I making sense (this post might be a rambler!)??  No matter what happens in this world, no matter who you love or the people and things you care about in this world, we are promised eternity in God our Creator in Heaven to one day be apart of the new heavens and the new earth.  That is what boggles my mind and kind of scares me only because I don’t have a good understanding about it.  God is in control of this world, but he gave us freedom and a choice therefore things happen, people make bad decisions and life is crazy sometimes.  Anyway.  Just another thought I’ve had!

So many things go on in this world and I’ve been wasting my energy, care, concern and time on “What’s going to happen next?”!!  Yes, God’s creation is amazing; jaw dropping.  It is a blessing to live in His amazing world, but this is not our eternity.  This is not what I need to dwell on and focus on every day.  Mainly I’m writing this for myself to look at and read and realize!  So, if you don’t finish reading this that’s ok!  If you do, I hope it was worth it to you and I appreciate it.

There are so many little things in this life that I desire to learn, do, experience, etc.  I get scared thinking “God isn’t going to allow me to do these things!”  but I forget that even though in this life certain things are dear to me, my purpose is not only to learn and experience things in this life.  I believe every Christian is meant to share the truth with people, Salvation and the bible with people so that more and more of God’s creation can spend eternity in heaven.

With all these thoughts let out, and plenty more to share, I will end here for today.  I am going to post more.  I really like posting pictures and I’ve been discouraged from that because our internet is really slow and I can never load them so that’s one other reason I haven’t been posting, not that it matters. 🙂

Thank you for sticking around or for stopping by today!  God bless you, and Lord please lead me and guide me and give my mind peace from all of these thoughts, in Jesus name!  Bless us today as we celebrate our independence from England and show us your glory every single day.  I love you and pray these things in Jesus name.  Amen.
