I cant wait to begin the rest of my life, to get out of high school and stop learning about a bunch of bull shit i don’t care about. I want to move to LA and become a MUA and live my dream. Even though i’m scared shitless to live on my own and grow up and leave my family behind, I just want it to happen. I want to wake up at ten in the morning laying next to my boyfriend in our studio apartment in LA. Wear all black and heels to school with purple lipstick and do what I love. I want to go out to the club and bar and have no rules and be out as late as I want. I can’t wait to be able to sleep in the same bed as my boyfriend with out getting yelled at. I can’t wait to grow up but i’m also terified for the next chapter of my life. Paying my own bills, not having my mom down the hall or my friends across town. That’s scary but I can’t wait. Bring on the heels and purple lipstick!
“I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who abides in Me while I abide in him produces much fruit…” (John 15:5)
Did you know that God wants you to live in Him? He wants to be your source of life. He wants you to abide in Him and rely on Him for everything. He wants to be your source for strength, provision, hope and joy. Like the air you breathe, He wants you to rely on Him for your very existence.
Abiding in God begins by meditating on Him, His Word and His goodness. You stop and think about Him when you go to sleep at night. You think about Him when you first wake up. You think about His promises all throughout the day and continually fellowship with Him in prayer. You make Him your number one priority and stay connected with other believers at church. Notice what this verse says will happen when you abide in Him - you will produce much fruit! When you are connected to God, everything you set your hand to will be fruitful and blessed. Just like a branch thrives when it is connected to the vine, you’re going to thrive and be prosperous when you are connected to Almighty God.
Depend on Him today and make Him your number one priority. Abide in Him and let Him pour out His abundant favor and blessing on you all the days of your life.
I’ve never felt so blessed before for everything I have been given. Thanks to my boyfriend and his family and also a close friend I have become more in touch with god. I know I’m not the perfect church kid and I’m not attempting to be. But I don’t see anything wrong with going to god with my troubles and worshiping him when I feel thankful. As I began to pray more and more and feel the happiness spread like wild fire around me, I can’t be more thankful. I have so much love and happiness in my life and I am learning to get rid of those who don’t treat me well. So happy to be in touch with god and can’t wait to keep building this relationship.
