Well for those of you who know me and my family, you know that my brother and I live at home and soon Brigitta will be moving back in.
Then I have my other sister, Jasmine, who lives with her husband and daughter in North Carolina.
I ask that you please pray for the family. This week has been really rough on all of us for various reasons.
We are looking forward to Thanksgiving, at our grandmothers house in Chattanooga, where we can just be together and help, and encourage each other. It will truly be a time of giving thanks to the Lord for us, as things have been hard lately, we are so grateful that we have each other to turn to.
But inspite of all the storms in our lives, we still prasie God. I'm so thankful to have parents who cling to the Word and they have taught us to do the same.
God is not slack concerning His promises! We don't understand why some things are happening, but even if we did, we are to "trust the Lord with all are our hearts, and lean not unto our own understanding." The God that saved our souls, is the same God that can fix our problems.

My friends, I encourage you, if you have any problem... Let God have the preeminence.
As for our family, this is another chapter in our story (which God has already written).
No matter what happens in your life, let your story be one that is full of praise to the Lord.
Sometimes I don't know how to pray, and all I can say is, "Bless the Lord, O my soul. Bless His Holy name!" Not because it's easy, but because He is worthy.
Even when it's hard.... Praise Him on purpose. He is who He is, no matter where we are.

My name is Lenea, I'm 18. I am new at this whole blogging thing. It's is fun so far.
I decided to start one with the goal of encouraging others in their walk with the Lord.
He has always been there for me and given strength in hard times, and I just want to give back. Not because of anyhting say or do is good, but because He is worthy.
