Hi all.  One fast announcement before I get into today’s blog, awhile back I seen Beckah Shae’s husband advertise this Christian website called gospel innovation, he was advertising it, because they were advertising Beckah Shae, so when I seen it I thought hmmm why not contact them for myself, to advertise my blog? so I did and 2 or 3 months later I get a letter back from them, not only agreeing to make a page on their site for me, but also agreeing to put a banner up on their other site pages and not only that but also, the guy tells me he owns a web design company and is willing to design a new banner for me, on my site!!! isn’t that awesome!!!! GOD is so good, Thank you Beckah Shae and her husband you two ROCK!!! LOL here is the page talking about me and THE-BOOK-OF-ROO, on their site .  I was pretty confused on what to write about today, so I went and started praying and crying out to GOD and during my time of prayer, GOD once again led me to Beckah Shae’s site.  When I first felt him telling me to go there, I thought oh LORD no!!! I love, love, LOVE Beckah Shae and her music, but if I keep bringing her up week after week people are going to start thinking I’m infatuated with her lol, but at the same time I knew what the LORD was laying on my heart and knew the words I needed to write were from him and not from my love for Beckah Shae.  So if anyone has a problem with me speaking of her music once again, take it up with GOD lol.  Sorry if that sounds rude, but like I have said over and over, I only write things I know the LORD is telling me to write, or things I and the LORD both feel, “together”  words that people need to hear.  So here I am getting ready to write about Beckah Shae once again, actually just to warn you, my next 2 blogs will be about things Ive learned from Beckah Shae’s music and her words of wisdom.  What I have learned about (from her) is how to forgive and how to be made pure (pure like GOLD).  You see in the past few years especially my early and late teens, I had a lot of people that had basically started showing me the real them and they hurt and disappointed me and I had started getting very discouraged and angry.  The worse part is most of the people that started making me feel this way were so called “church” people and I basically had, like I said before in my blogs, was giving up on church, because I felt all church people were fake and liars and all they did was discourage me and I felt I could not trust any of them, especially because some of these people were not only “church” people but also were family.  So here I am, I lost half my friends, some of my family and my church, so why would I trust people or church again right? wrong!! one of the most valuable things Ive learned this year is, life is not perfect even as a Christian, yes like I said before, if we try hard enough we can achieve perfection in CHRIST, but life and our own selves are not perfect only GOD is.  I had to learn and did learn with Beckah Shae and the LORDS help, that being angry is not solving anything, it is not teaching the person who did me wrong anything and it is not making me feel any better, so whats the point?  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my FAMILY and I mean no disrespect to any of them when I say this, but I have seen what being angry and holding on to stupid grudges can do to a person and to a family, trust me it is not worth it.  You know to forgive someone doesn’t mean your supporting the wrong they did to you, it means  your letting the past go, your wiping the slate clean, your releasing your self from the situation.  Let me ask you how many times do you think GOD has forgiving you? any of us for that matter?  Matthew 18:21-22 says.  Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.  I had to learn to let the past go to be free from everything, everyone doesn’t have to love me and not everyone will, its sad because we all should love one another, that’s what GOD wants of us, but that’s not going to happen, what I learned is. I cannot change other people only GOD can.  I had to learn to surrender to GODS will and stop worrying about my needs my desires, my wants, and just give in to GODS needs and wants.  You know I always loved GOLD just like any other girl in the world, but when I met Beckah Shae and learned what it truly meant and was about I now not only love it but am in love with it lol.  In her blog about GOLD she said this: In order for gold to be refined, it must be subjected to an intense fire. This fire is what purifies the gold, because it separates out all of the impurities in the gold, also known as the dross. As the dross is burned away, only the pure gold remains. The refiner knows when the gold is sufficiently purified when he can look into the nugget of gold and see his face in the reflection. This refining process is the only way gold is made. There are no alternatives, and no shortcuts. Just as the refiner knows his gold is ready when he can see his face in it, we’ll know that we’re becoming more like God when others can look at us when we’re going through trials and suffering and see His face.  Isn’t that good?? I thought it was at least hehehehe.  In the middle of writing this blog the LORD spoke to my heart and I feel he wanted me to share something with you all.  Did you know that when we go to church it is not about the people?? yes we are the body of CHRIST “the church”, but our purpose of going to church is to learn about CHRIST JESUS not to focus on other people.  I have been very guilty of this myself, the minute I see people saying or doing things I don’t like, my first instinct is to run on out but I and the rest of us need to stop that, because its not about the people.  Its about getting to know the LORD and what we can learn about him by being there.  Again we need to start putting his needs before ours. Job 23:10 says:  But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold. That’s how I want to be, when I am tested, when I am thrown in to that FIRE I WANT TO COME OUT GOLD BABY!!!! LOL.  So next time life disappoints you or someone upsets you don’t get discouraged, stay strong, believe in faith that GOD will see you through and that you will be made GOLD.  The minute I learned this about GOLD, it changed my life.  It really and truly did, I feel so much stronger now and ever since I started living in a more positive way positive things have been happening.  Like I said in my new years blog I know, I can feel, that great things are going to start happening this year not only for me, but for all of us, and I think the word of GOD is going to start spreading like wild fires.  Stay strong all don’t get discouraged keep on fighting keep pushing through that fire because you will come out GOLD one day.  I promise. I AND THE LORD LOVE YOU. SEE YOU ALL NEXT WEEK GOD BLESS 🙂
