Passion Live Link

I sit here waiting for more from the passion live link. I know its over, but its only just began.  The message tonight was what i have been praying for, for a while now.  Today in society, Young people are supposed to be moved out, in college, have an apartment, know exactly what they are doing. I on the other hand do NOT know any of this. I still live at home, im 24 years old, havent stepped foot in college, and dont even know the first clue about what im wanting to do.  Louie was talking about how his mom had just passed away and the time they went to the auburn football game in the flooding rain. I Cant recall the verses that he was reading from the bible, (somebody help me here). I think it was in Isaiah, but it was talking about God still has a plan for you life even if you dont know anything. Even before you were born or thought of  God had you in mind and had a purpose for you. Its reassuring to know that God still loves me and still has a plan for me. He hasnt tried to leave and just let me come up with something on my own. Its God driven all the way and thats how its gonna be.  

I have written on my facebook today about my grandma. She is doing ok for now, but I think this is the straw that broke the camels back. She had a stroke that paralized her left arm and left leg. The brain has been damaged and probably wont be repaired. Maybe this is the start of my lifes purpose as what Louie was talking about when his dad died. My grandma has been thru so much in her life even before i was born. Not to just start naming things off but shes been thru so many cuts, bruises, falls, surgerys, and emotional situations.  Shes the strongest most God-given thing to me. I love her so much i just cant bare to loose her now.

In conclusion, let me remind you to pray for Grandma Askew. Also pray for me that I would know clear instructions on what i need to be doing.   

Thank you for your prayers and support thru this time in my life.

About praying.

After i asked Jesus into my heart, Ive recently in the last 5 years really wanting to start praying a lot.  All my life i've heard it said: read your bible and pray.  I used to not want to pray. I felt as though He wasn't there. But little did i know He was there and heard every single word i spoke. 

Our church is one place that needs prayer right now. A lot of personal things need prayer. Our Country needs prayer. Our Political leaders need prayer.  He loves us and wants to listen to us. Come to Him like a little child and talk to Our Father. We need to lean on the leader.

Pray without Ceasing.

The reason behind my name.

Ok. Since many of you are asking about the name i will tell you.  Nothing has purpose.  Its probably a testiment in itself.   It comes out of the Love chapter in the Bible.   Apart from Christ we are nothing, right?  But if Christ is Love, and we accept that forgiveness we have that Love inside of us.  1 Corinthians 13: verse 2 says, If i have the gift of prophecy and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if i have all faith so i can move mountains, but do Not have love, i am nothing.

   Your probably saying, where is she going with this? 

I used to not have this Love inside of me. I was nothing. But nothing became a purpose on that February day. God has given me a purpose on this earth to Love Him and His people.   Verse 13 of that chapter concludes: Now these that remain are 3,  faith hope and love. but the greatest of them is Love.

I have come a long way from the time i accepted the forgiveness that would forever change my life. I wouldn't consider myself a good example of who a follower of Christ should look like. I still sin daily. I do things that i'm not proud of. Some of the time i go with the wrong intentions. I dont want you to think that i'm crying out for you to have pity on me. Thats not what this is about.  Im a visual hands on learner. Sometimes i dont think twice before i make my move. But all in all, I would just say that life since way back on February 7th  has felt like eternity. Growing more and more in His Love.
