Starting doing beading in @1995 after getting alcohol poisoning while out partying with friends. It is a talent that God gave me to keep me from trying to kill myself (literally through binge drinking and then driving while drunk) From broken to Reborn, from lost to Found, God gave me this talent to make jewelry and I didn't realize how relevant it was to my life until I was listening to the radio praising God and this song came on (of course I forgot the name and such) but it talked about taking the old and making it new again. God did that with me as I do that with my jewelry! I love taking old broken pieces and recreating something new and exciting. If the necklace doesn't have earrings with it, I can make some to go with it. Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of death. vs 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. It only through Jesus can we be truly changed, He alone has all power to deliver us from the bondage of sin and give us new life.

Hide your pride!
When you see or hear the words- humble, and humility, what comes to mind? Do you find your human free will clashing with your heart/soul that you gave to God? The answer is more than likely YES. Our free will and human worldly side seeks to be number 1, more important than our neighbor, better than all the rest. BUT when we are changed by God and SEEK Him first, HUMBLING ourselves to HIM, it sparks a war within.
Why do we think we have to be more than our neighbors instead of lifting up our neighbor? Celebrating someone else's achievements often casts a shadow of fear and failure on our own lives that we wish we could HIDE away from everyone.
I pray that God comes alive in your life and removes all your anxiety. Move into HIS light and become HUMBLE to HIM as well as others.
Love you all!
