I was in the 6th grade and i gave my life over to Jesus. It was a scary time because i was afraid to tell my parents that I am now a Christian. Actually, it wasn’t until college when I was finally able to tell them about my faith in Christ. I cannot tell you the exact time and day that i was saved. I can tell you what was the first verse that i ever memorized. Back then (and today) this was a verse that spoke to me. It was everything that i was looking for all nicely wrapped up in just a few words. It was a reminded that with Jesus ANYTHING is possible. It spoke to the inner child in me. A child seeking something from his father. Recently, my daughter asked me what was my favorite bible verse. With that question, Matthew 7:7 and how it held my faith together at such a young age was brought back into the family.
What’s your favorite bible verse?

I remember the excitement in my daughters (grade 4K) voice as she was telling me about a song they had performed while attending Vacation Bible School at Northside Christian Church in Macon, GA. The song was called “Days of Elijah” by Robin Mark. The song she learned was accompanied by simple choreography. I can recall thanking God under my breath in that moment for showing himself to my daughter. I also made a mental note of the song becuase I knew a day would come when that song would come back into our lives and put a smile on my daughters face as she gets older.
Four years later my daughter has gotten so big. She has adjusted well to the move to Guam and is still seeking out our lord. She is also beginning to learn about our US government and how the consitution is the law of the land. I want my daughter to love this great country of ours and still honor our God. I am motivated by this passage
“And Jesus said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” And they were amazed at Him.” Mark 12:17
I was looking for something that ties in love for our country and love for our God. After watching this Video, I am confident that i found the perfect video to show my daughter. I can’t wait for her to watch this tomorrow. Watch the video. It will definitely lift your spirit.

I have been living on Guam for a little more than a year and it has finally grown on me. For the past year all I have been doing to complaining about what Guam doesnt have. I complain about the things i cannot do here when in fact i should be focusing on what i can be doing. I love Georgia (still cannot wait to get back) but there is no way i can experience all this back there. As i was laying in the crystal clear water (7 hour), I finally am enjoying Guam for what it is. With the clock ticking on our time to head back to Georgia, I found out my love for this island just in the nick of time. Its time to look at Guam with a new pair of lenses and enjoy paradise. Its amazing how God can place you in such a beautiful place and yet you do not see it. FYI, The sunsets on Guam is evidence that God can make the most beautiful scenery!
