Have you every wondered why God made you a certain way. Why he allows certain things to happen in your life . I have . For those of you who may not know I have Dyslexia and I have really been struggling over the past few days. I had just finished an assignment and I felt really good about myself but when I went to type it out on the computer I noticed that I had written it all backwards. When I saw that I got really frustrated I felt like I should have been able to catch that mistake . My Dyslexia is not life threatening but it is frustrating . And for many many years I have felt stupid and second best. But when I asked God about why he made me have Dyslexia He just said Rachel I want to use it as a ministry. A way that you will be able to communicate to others . I don't know how God is going to do it but I am trusting that he has allowed me to be Dyslexic for a reason .And if that reason is good enough for God than it is good enough for me. So I am going to thank God for allowing me to be Dyslexic and trust that he has a great plan for me .
When I was younger People use to make fun of me because I was different because I would read slow and spell everything wrong. And I use to feel like God had made a mistake when he made me. But Now I know that my God makes no mistakes I know that he created me to have Dyslexia and that it is all part of who I am and it is a big part of who I will be . I could chose to give up I could chose to let it beat me . But my God shall supply all my needs and he will always be their for me when I need him .

So little time

Tick ,tock, tick ,tock , seconds turn into hours and hours into days . Time is one thing we all wish we could stop . My Dad always says that he is going to wind back the clock so that I could always stay little . But one that is for sure about time is that one day we will run out. I just found out yesterday that a friend's brother died in a car crash . So young ,but he is out of time . I was thinking about it and all that is left behind is his memories and the consequences of what he did in his life. So how am I going to be remembered ? How will people see me when I die? I want to to say that I was a great witness ,that everything I did pointed back to the saviour, that I made mistakes but I did not let them controll my life ,that I had a deep love for people and that I had lived my life to it's fullest potential. We are in a race .A race aginst time .The Bible says ,
"Teach us to number our days that we may apply our hears unto wisdom .Psalms 90:12"
So how will I spend my time today? Who will I influence? Today I will be making memories memories that will last through the years but what type of memories will I make ,and what impressions will I leave behind.
