A Quick Update :)

Wow, I’ve been away from my blog for almost 10 days! I’ve been so busy, and I will continue to be busy! Lets see tomorrow: study for Macroeconomics, go out to lunch with Debbie?, Work, Clean my room? Tuesday: Go babysit GabbiJo (Luke’s lil sis), study Macro again, work.
May not seem like much, but hehe feels like a LOT to me. Especially becuase I want to work really HARD on Macroeconomics so that I can take that CLEP on Thursday.
But thats not really wanted to post for. I wrote my CollegePlus! Coach, Jessica, about what has been going on with Mrs. Ewing, and this is what I wrote to her:

Mrs. Ewing had sent me a message using myspace this summer about something I was going through, and this is what she said: “The very fact that it’s melting you into nothing is key. God knows your weakness…that’s why He’s right there near it lol. It’s not about pass-fail, it’s about some wonder He would like to show you. Rest, girl!!!!!! – RELAX -into His heart and look for what He wants to show you – it will be worth it. “ Somehow, I take comfort in this quote, for just as what I was going through was causing me to feel completely incapable, this trial that she is going through IS keeping her completely incapable. But yet, I hold on to the hope that God is showing her a depth of Himself that she has never seen before. When I think about it in that light, I almost envy the revelation of His power that she must be receiving, yet I am slowly realizing that His power does not come all at once. His power has to come first in the small things.

Small things. Lord, show me Your power in the small things! Teach me about Yourself.


About Melanie

My Being Purpose Statement: As a part of Christ's Bride and as one of His precious treasures whom He redeemed with His precious blood, I purpose in my heart to love and adore Him with all of my heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:37). I want to be beautiful in the sight of my Saviour, Jesus Christ. I will therefore pursue holiness (1 Peter 1:16) that I might worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness (1 Chronicles 16:29, Psalms 96:9) and go and proclaim His love, sacrifice and salvation to others who have not heard that I may have the beautiful feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things (Isaiah 52:7, Romans 10:15). My Life Purpose Statement: I desire to serve my Redeemer and Savior Jesus Christ throughout my entire life by ministering to girls and women. I pray that I will be able to bring many girls and women to the Cross of Christ that they may find salvation from a loving and gracious Savior. It is my heart’s desire to encourage girls and women who know the Savior to deepen their relationship with Him and to fall more and more in love with Him. I also want to serve women by assisting them in their everyday lives whether I am rolling up my sleeves to work alongside them or am connecting them with people, ministries, and or resources that will be helpful and beneficial to them. By God’s grace and power, through His Spirit, and for His glory will I endeavor to fulfill this purpose
