I have been feeling God is leading me toward some sort of leadership. If you know me that has never ever been something I do, have wanted to do. I am the outgoing when I know you, but shy when getting to know you, never stand in front of a group, be center of attention, kind of girl. But I just start thinking of things I would love to do to further His kingdom. I just never know where to start, how to do it, etc. One thing I would LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE to do is start a prayer group. I want to lead a group of people, in time of prayer for others, each other, themselves, etc. I truly believe in the power of prayer. But like I said I never know where to start, how to get something like that going. How would I get others interested in joining me in something like that.
I know if God has a will for me to be in some sort of leadership position, it will happen, he will teach me how to lead(or more so the Holy Spirit will use me to lead,) give me the courage to lead, and help me through all the other things that freak me out. I just need to pray, and keep learning, and desiring to have Gods will be my life.

So I got a new devotional 2 weeks ago, its awesome, best devotional I have ever t seen thus far :) love love love it. It is a 365 day devotional for students, mostly high school/college age. Anywho,it is by ignite your faith, and its called Set Your Faith on Fire. It is such a cool devotional, it has stories, bible verses, bible stories told in a fun way, challenges you to do something, asks you questions, and more. Every day is different. There are, I think 48 different topics/subjects that it goes on within the 365 days. Things from the Bible, to dating, to making choices, to who God is, etc. I have never been this excited about a devo before!!! I have been in it everyday since I got it. Along with reading it, I have gotten SOOOOO much better at daily reading my Bible. I have to spend time reading it, or my day does not feel complete. God has really been showing Himself and meeting me in my time with Him. I have been understand more out of the Bible then I ever have. I feel God teaching me, and allowing my faith, and spiritual journey grow more and more. It started out with God showing/teaching me about perseverance, then it has moved on to living and looking like a Christian. I can't even tell you how excited I am about this. I just hope and pray God will keep me strong in keeping up with my daily time with Him. Because its by the grace of God that I am learning and growing, and longing to spend time with Him.
