God working on me again!

Well here we go again as you all know I posted awhile back about LaShanna being in a pageant and winning. Than Sister Lori sent me the sweetest comments with scripture. Well I read the scripture and being as hard headed as a mull. I decides I could teach LaShanna our Fathers way and still participate in the ways of the world. Well that is a laugh. I entered her in the state pageant and off to Butte Mt we went with high hopes and God watching. Let me tell you first off the reason I was doing this was the prize money for LaShanna in the future for school or a home or what ever she may need (I should have prayed about that stuff and left it up to God ) I really did believe that I could still teach her good sportsmanship and how to be giving, loving, humble you know all the things we want to teach our little girls so they grow up to love God and be good wife's, mothers etc. Well God had a lesson for me. I will not go into weather she won or not because that is not important. What I will go into is that we entered a world of fake and evil and unhappy people, we entered the world in a big way and I was scared to see how many Mommy's treated there little girls badly and to see how mean they were to them and to see little girls exploited for there beauty and made to feel that they had no worth was more than I bargained for. So I began to pray and God showed me that you can not walk in both places. You have to stay close to him and away from the world. God showed me once again why it is so important to seek the company of your brethren and to attend church and to pray and seek him in all we need big or small. God tried to show me this when he sent Sister Lori to my post last time and she gave me the scripture I needed but I was not faithful and did not head his word. I am so glad he loves me enough to keep teaching me and loves me so much he sends me wonderful Sisters to learn from I feel very blessed to be in the faith and to have the Bible to follow so I know how to live my life. Our Lord is so sweet and loving. So I am here to tell you I wont be doing that again. I have at last learned this lesson. There are so manymore to learn I am glad I have my family in God to learn from and with..............................................

Hi Sis, your life is evidence that God is in you...to be able to hear the still small voice of God in your heart is a treasure beyond compare. How else would we ever be able to be made perfect and meet His face in peace? Love you and yours...

Thats so neat, its comforting when we feel Gods trying to teach us and when we realize His lesson! We just got to remember what we felt and thank God for his Spirit you know?

As Brother Travis says thats one more lesson to pick up and put in your backpack! ( I think thats what he said! Oh well ) Keep filling it up! It really does make us grow and be stronger for the Road ahead.

Thats awesome Im so glad I read that, Ive been thinking about similair things! Well Not entering myself in a beauty pagent but hey you never know! ;) hahah Love you and Miss you Sister Char!!

That's a great post!! I'm so glad that not only was God so merciful to you that he took the time to teach you but you also were willing to hear Him. That's the key, never stop learning.
