Thank you, and please, be the first to get this challenge going!

Live It Out

Whether you live in Germany, Tennesee, or France, I would say that all of us want to live a life of abundance.  Hopefully, when we are dead, we will be remembered at our funeral as a person that made a difference in others lives.  Then again, nothing but our right-standing with God will matter when we die! 
But how can you 'live it out', as I'm going to call it, to your fullest?  How can you live your life and not regret it?
"But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter."

Romans 7:6

There's our answer!  The Bible tells us that when we turn from our sin and turn to Jesus for salvation, and Him ONLY, not our works, but only Him, then you have been delivered from sin in which you in chains to, and now you are in the newness of the Spirit!  Your a new being, a new person in Christ, and only then...ONLY then, can you live a life to its fullest! 

Oh!  The joy that comes to all those that die to their sin and cling to the cross of Jesus Christ! 


Live it out.

Thank you readers for reading my blog!  I appreciate everyone who comes and spends their time here.  I encourage you to always keep looking for The Truth, and not be satisfied until you find it in Jesus. 

Sincerely,
Samantha

God Bless America*land that I love*stand beside her*and guide her*through the night with the light from above*

The time is coming when you will be asked the question, "Are you voting?"  And more importantly, "Who are you voting for?" 

God bless America...that's what most of us want, isn't it?  But God is also just, and He will only bless a country that is seeking to follow Him.  I'm not saying vote for so and so and not so and so...I'm simply encouraging you to seek history, and seek God's Word, and obey His voice.
It will take courage.  But courage is worth it.  It might be painful.  But pain is worth it.
Don't shrink into the average pitfall...be couragrous and stand up for THE TRUTH. 
"In God we trust."

Is that written on your life?

Tears, Sisters and Hope


Have you ever been so connected with a certain group of friends that you don't realize how much you love them, till they have to go away?
The last show of The Velveteen Rabbit was on Saturday, July 28th.  We have three shows, one on Friday night, one Saturday matinee, and one that evening.  Usually, you can tell that the girls are giving even more than usual on that last show...the one that everyone knows will be the last time for them to shine, the last time that all these girls are together and dancing the touching and heartfelt story of a girl that loves a little stuffed rabbit...and because of that love...the rabbit becomes real.
I have come to know these girls at the ballet program as like my sisters...so many of us have known each other for over half our lives or nearly all our lives...and it brings tears to our eyes to watch eight of the older girls this year graduate.  Once you turn 18, you have to graduate.
The sun was setting on this chapter, this period, of our lives.  The heroines of the King, the beautiful dancers that played the main characters...they are done, they are through, and it breaks hearts.
But it is also the dawning of a new time, a new era.  Now, the younger girls that feel as if they should never have the chance to move up and shine to their best ability, their chance to become a main character, those doubts begin to fade as they realize that they, we, are the next generation of heroines.  We can shine for Him, too...we should never lower ourselves, thinking that because a girl may be a better dancer than us, then we are lowly and unimportant.  We are all important, we are all equal.  And because of this unseen bonding that has been molded over all these years...we are sisters.  Sisters in Christ.
There were so many tears and embraces that will always be engraved into my memory on that amazing, Saturday night.  I cried till no more tears would come, and no more sorrow could be pressed out.
The tears will eventually dry, and the bond that has been created between us all will never be broken simply because they are moving on to a better and exciting chapter in their lives.
The examples of the upright, of those that are following Jesus with their hearts and lives, that gives me hope.
It gives us hope.


The dawning of a new generation of heroines...this is only the beginning of the end.

At the Theatre. Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

We're finally at the theatre!  These are all from the first day at the theatre rehearsal...



















It's amazing what can happen when you give Jesus your heart as you dance, and don't hold anything back.  I have finally come to understand why I struggled with my joy as I danced...I tried to give it my ALL, but most of the time, I wasn't clear on who I was giving my ALL.  Before The Velveteen Rabbit ballet show, I was struggling so much with my faith and worrying about what other people thought of me while I danced, instead of only dancing for The One, God.  Then, my Dad told me something like: "Have you ever thought of 'Audience of One'?"  I hadn't thought of it that way really, but my Dad began that wondering inside my heart of only dancing for "Audience of One".  Then, this girl that's a little older than me, a girl that I admire truly because every time she dances I see a joy that illuminates from her face and shines forth; I asked her what helps her to dance for God so beautifully, and she answered, "Audience of One."  

By chance?  I know better.  I finally realized that this entire time I had been jealous of the older dancers because I saw in them something that I didn't have...and it was joy.  Joy that only is borne through a heart that dances for the "Audience of One."  God opened my eyes to my selfishness, and He brought me the greatest joy I've ever had through this show.  There has been other shows before this one, but this one...
was my absolute BEST.  

Audience of One.
