The Lord is faithful

As of yesterday, I am 18 years old! With every "happy birthday" I recieved, I chuckled a bit, knowing of the new found freedom and responsibilities I would be recieving. Not only did I become a year older, I also launched my own business as an Arbonne Indepentant Consultant!

The funny part about launching my own business, is that no one showed up! I was embrassed, looking at the consultant who had driven two hours, to sign me up, train me, and support me. However, the next 4 hours she spent at my house was amazing. As we began discussing why we chose to sell Arbonne products, I was able to share my faith in Jesus Christ, and how I wanted to live my life for His glory. The coolest thing happened, we connected on a spiritual level of understanding; She had the same desire!

Today, I went to my first eye doctors appointment with out my mom by my side. I was given our family insurance card, and sent on my way! I just recieved $40 in birthday money, and I placed it in my purse so that after my appointment, I could go shopping. However,I found out that I would need that $40 to pay for what my insurance did not cover after the appointment. 

At the beginning of this month, my best friend moved away. I have felt quite lonely, and the devil has tried to knock me down telling me lies such as I am to needy, annoying, boring, stupid, not good enough, a loser, etc. However, the Lord has been speaking to my heart, and my family has surrounded me in love and poured the wisdom of God into my mind. 

I know the Lord is faithful in the small things, and I have no doubts that I will find Him to be faithful in the big things that I have yet to see. I am an adult now, 18 years old. I want to live a life that is faithful to the Lord. 

Finally, brothers,pray for us, that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored,as happened among you, and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men. For not all have faith. But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. And we have confidence in the Lord about you, that you are doing and will do the things that we command.May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ. - Thessalonians 2:1-5 ESV

Mood: None, or other

Yesterday I was 70, but I remember vividly many of my activities at 18.  I wish you belatedly a very happy birthday and a wonderful year.  My advice is to keep doing the best you can--and repent those times (inevitable, I think) when you don't.  I remember starting out in Amway and Melaleuca, but thankfully I quickly learned that my skills and personality needed a fulltime job with a good supervisor to keep me motivated and focused.
