I need $1,110 by May 8th.... I have about $400... I havent been able to work in two weeks because of my foot surgery that i had and i went to work last night, killed myself.. totally shouldnt have gone. Got away with about two hundred dollars and it was stolen from my house today...

I hate this but im in need.... i never wanted to write this..

Missions trips are my calling.. i love doing it and i just need to go out there and preach Gods message. I have been on two other trips and i want so despratly to go again. All of my time and effort has been going into getting money for this but im not getting any!

Subject:Rick Warren's vision statement for the Purpose Driven movement
Time:09:48 pm
The Purpose Driven Movement Vision
(The Angel Stadium Declaration - April 17, 2005)
By Rick Warren

Today I am stepping across the line. I'm tired of waffling and I'm finished with wavering, I've made my choice, the verdict is in, and my decision is irrevocable. I'm going God's way. There's no turning back now!

I will live the rest of my life serving God's purposes with God's people on God's planet for God's glory. I will use my life to celebrate his presence, cultivate his character, participate in his family, demonstrate his love, and communicate his word.

Since my past has been forgiven, and I have a purpose for living, and a home awaiting in heaven, I refuse to waste any more time or energy on shallow living, petty thinking, trivial talking, thoughtless doing, useless regretting, hurtful resenting, or faithless worrying. Instead I will magnify God, grow to maturity, serve in ministry, and fulfill my mission in the membership of his family.

Because this life is preparation for the next, I will value worship over wealth, "we" over "me," character over comfort, service over status, and people over possessions, position, and pleasures. I know what matters most and I'll give it all I've got. I'll do the best I can with what I have for Jesus Christ today.

I won't be captivated by culture, manipulated by critics, motivated by praise, frustrated by problems, debilitated by temptation, or intimidated by the devil. I'll keep running my race with my eyes on the goal, not the sidelines or those running by me. When times get tough, and I get tired, I won't back up, back off, back down, back out or backslide. I'll just keep moving forward by God's grace. I'm Spirit-led, purpose-driven and mission-focused so I cannot be bought, I will not be compromised, and I shall not quit until I finish the race.

I'm a trophy of God's amazing grace so I will be gracious to everyone, grateful for everyday, and generous with everything that God entrusts to me.

To my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I say: However, Whenever, Wherever, and Whatever you ask me to do, my answer in advance is yes! Wherever you lead and whatever the cost, I'm ready. Anytime. Anywhere. Anyway. Whatever it takes Lord; Whatever it takes! I want to be used by you in such a way, that on that final day I'll hear you say, "Well done, thou good and faithful one. Come on in, and let the eternal party begin!"

You stare at the line that has been drawn on the floor you then look behind you to see what is yours. Across this line is what you desire, so close to it but thoughts of consequences cloud over. Have you not thought of where your heart wants to be? If there is a way you shall find it. Do not let lines control your dreams just one small act could change the whole scene.

Be true to your talents, you are more than just a dreamer.

Subject:Her
Time:05:28 am
You can see her smile from 50 yards away, and you can smell her hair cities away. Your memory never stops when thinking about her existence, for this is how you know her so well.

Inside your heart you've studied her life to understand it better, and inside your mind you've built images that will last forever. She truly is something and this you've confessed, this you've taken to heart because she's the half that comforts you.

Her eyes like spring and her heart as the flowers that grow in such a beautiful season. Her whole body and soul created unique, this is the woman you shall love; "I thank you God".

Take her into your heart forever, so you may fulfil each other.

It's better to not know a face, you surely get to know ones heart better that way.

I believe many don't give full time to understand ones true heart, but if looks are to be judged, then I believe I know why so many have bad relationships.

Do we focus more on looks or more on heart? Then why do so many worry about looks?

We need to think not of ourselves but as a unity of people. If love is a great foundation, why aren't we using it to our fullest ability? Do you use it to your fullest abilities?

Maybe we should reflect on that before we judge ones face against their heart.

Subject:Uphill
Time:11:26 pm
I had a dream one night. It was vivid, I could taste my thoughts and emotions.
My dream was a hill with millions of people climbing it, as if there was no other way to go but up. Those that even lost their step still fought to get back up that hill. I saw this and was so amazed, but I didn't even know where they were going.

I went up to a man that was right at the bottom. I asked him where he was going. I remember the look in his eye, sad yet egger to climb that hill. He told me he was going to die. I was shocked and asked him what he was dying of. He replied back to me, "I don't know, but I will know when I make it to the top." I asked him to just go the other way and not climb the hill, to save himself from whatever he was talking about. He told me, "in this life you climb" ...amazed by his comment, I stepped back and watched him. I woke up.

Patience obtains all things.

As one is to love another, yet they lose each other, will patience not let them find love again? If you have patience will you not see the problem? Will it not come to you with time as you heal? Or is it truly the end for someone that has lost love? Is it officially over?
I believe if you have patience you give yourself the benefit of the doubt, and you wait and mature through even the worst pain. Like the man who was climbing the hill, why was he so close to the bottom, yet wanted to still climb? Did he have the patience to believe in himself, even if he rather just let the hill consume him? Did he find a value that was indestructible within him?

Everyone has the power to succeed over any struggle, but it's up to them to do so. It took me years of patience to even start understanding my pain, had I been climbing as well? Even if it felt like I was at the bottom? ...I think so, I think that journey uphill is to somewhere even non-believers will give the benefit of the doubt. I've survived many slips upon this hill, and I cannot do magic nor miracles, but I've made it this far for a reason. Keep an open mind, and of course an open heart as you climb through your struggles.

God's heart is truly like the ocean, He always has room for more fish.

Grab a mirror and look it straight, see that person who is you, and focus on how far you've come; how you're still standing even if low has you down. Look yourself in the eyes, where your heart can see you, and realize your true value.

Some feel they are worthless, and cannot afford any compliments. If this is how they feel, this is how they will live, be sure to look within that mirror and see someone who truly has done the best to their abilities. People are truly worth that much; we are the Children of God.

Don't give up, build up ... right to the top because you can!
