My second day of adult school was worse than yesterday and today was Algebra. Even though the entire class period it's just classwork that the teacher gives us to do, it was so boring. Just having that feeling to work and work and work is so repetitive and becomes unexciting. Nothing is difficult about the class, the only thing is that it is time consuming since the class is 3 hrs and ten minutes long. But the benefit of having the class is that once I finish all the classwork, I can do my homework and finish it early there so that when I come home I won't have anything to do. Today we completed a diagnostic test which was to discover where we are currently on our math skills. I did very poorly to tell the truth. I got 16 out of 50. But nevertheless that is unimportant because it's in a temporary sense and has temporary value and will never make it on Judgement Day. So right after the diagnostic test I completed a packet and worksheet ( I still have to finish the worksheet tonight), and then we take a quiz/test. We didn't take that today because we haven't reviewed anything, since today was out first day. But other than that nothing else. Please, please, please pray that the Lord will give me strength to persevere through this entire adult school program along with my Literature class. "I can do everything through Him who gives me strength." Philippians 4:13 Amen.

Today was the first day of adult school. It honestly wasn't bad. I had the same teacher I had last quarter. And his humor is fantastic! Makes the class much more fun and with lots of excitement. All we do in class is take a test from the online work that we do and then we leave. Very easy. And the work is all online on his website. We basically have three books that we read online individually for each week which are short or long stories, and then we complete the study guide after we read the story and submit it after answering the questions. And that's it! Simplicity. Tomorrow is Algebra 1 and the class is from 3:40-6:50. All I do in that class is just work, work, work. Hopefully not the whole time period. But I can make it through with God's strength. "It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect." 2 Samuel 22:33 Amen.

Well today I decided to give it a second shot at Wal-Mart after I failed the first time I was there. I knew that God would lead to the right people if I continued to be faithful and that's exactly what happened. I went in to see who the Lord had put there for me to talk to. As I came through the entrance I noticed a Blimpie restaurant on my left. I walked in and noticed a guy who was just sitting by himself and I approached him and said "hey how you doing sir. Can you help me out I'm working on a project?" He just said "don't bother me and I responded "have a great day" and walked away. That guy didn't want to talk with me and I knew that I got rejected instantly. Then I noticed an elderly woman near me and I walked up to her and asked her the question "if you died tonight are you 100% assured you would go to Heaven?" She said yes and then I said to her how she knew that to be true. Then she said "because I believe in God" I was happy and then I said God Bless you and walked away. I walked around to see who the Lord had put in my path and when I entered the movie section of the store I noticed a girl who looked like a teenager standing looking at some books. I approached her and asked "excuse me can you help me out I'm working on a project?" She asked me what kind and I said "well I am asking people the question if you died tonight are you 100% assured you would go to Heaven?" She said "no" and I asked her how she knew that to be true and she replied "I don't know." Then I shared with her about Heaven and how it's a place of no more pain, suffering, or tears and how great it is. Then I shared with her the gift of Jesus Blood shed on the Cross for her sins and that it's a gift that she can accept. Her name is Natalia and I said to her "the only reason I share this with you is because I care about your soul and where you are going when you die. And I hope that means something to you." She smiled and then at the end of the conversation she told me she had to leave. She said to me "it was nice talking to you" then she left. Next I was walking down the aisle when I noticed a man by himself that looked philipino. I approached him and said "hey how you doing sir" he said "good" I asked "can you help me out, I'm working on a project?" I don't remember what he said. But I asked him the question if you died tonight are you 100% assured you would go to Heaven? He said I don't know. I noticed him wearing a Cross necklace the usual ones Catholics wear and asked him "why do you wear that necklace? He said because it looks good. Then I said "did you know someone died on that Cross for you 2,000 years ago?" He said "no". I said "do you know who Jesus is?" He said yes. (That's a surprise, if he knew Jesus then how could he not know His significant death on the Cross for the worlds sins? Very interesting.) Then I shared with him what the Blood of Jesus Christ can do for him then I gave him a tract and left. That's my story of what happened twice at Wal-Mart again. Jesus is full of second chances. Praise Him for His unfailing faithfulness!!! Amen!
Today has been one of the worst days of witnessing ever. When I was at Wal-Mart for black Friday I did not witness to one single person, NOT ONE. This has probably been one of my worst trips with no purpose ever. I even prayed to the Lord to use me and yet when I was in Wal-Mart I didn't do it once. I believe it was because God was simply doing His part which was using me and I was supposed to do mine by initiating the action instead of just waiting for some miracle to happen. I never blame anything on the Lord ever. This was all my fault. Jesus was doing His part and I wasn't doing mine. As simple as that. I know I can do better. When I am at adult school, I am just going to go all out and tell people about Jesus. I know I have mentioned this book numerous times but mark cahill's fantastic book one thing you can't do in Heaven has inspired me to tell a whole lot of Jesus without fear. And I do encourage you guys to pray for me to be a bolder witnesser for the Lord. I just need to do my part. That's all. I feel so ashamed of myself now. I know I am be a better JesusFreak than that. So please pray for me to be bolder. I would appreciate that soo much!!! God bless you! -JesusSaves224

A thank you prayer written by me to Jesus:
Dear Lord Jesus. Thank you for the wonderful food you have put on my plate today. You are wonderful and just simply beyond words. But most importantly above all else thank you for dying for me when I did not deserve it and for granting me the gift of eternal life. You are my Savior. I also thank you Lord for giving me the right mindset and and for giving me the focus to save souls and to tell people about your love. I also thank you for the breath that I have today and that you have still kept me breathing here on Earth to tell more and more people about what you did for them. And I want to thank you Lord for keeping me in the faith. I want to finish this fight Lord and want to finish it strong and for you alone Lord. Nothing else matters except my love for you and you using me to show it to people to draw them to you. Thank you, thank you, thank you Jesus. I love you soo much!!! <333333 In your beautiful name I pray. Amen.

The day I see the Lord's face will be a day of indescribable joy that simply can't be put in Words. What will it be like to see Him in His full Majesty and Glory? I can only imagine just like the song from mercy me. "I can only imagine, what it will be like, when I walk, by your side. I can only imagine, when that day comes, when your face, is before me. I can only imagine." The Beauty and Glory of the Lord Jesus Christ is just beyond all words. Nobody can know what it will be like to be in the presence of our Savior and God. When I see Jesus the first words I am going to say to Him are "I love you Jesus. Than you so much for dying for me. I don't deserve this place. But you gave yourself for me because you loved me and wanted me to be with you for all of eternity." I don't know if I will be saying it like that, but I know I will be in joyful tears when I see Him face to face. I can only imagine. Amen.

Ever made a promise that you regretted entirely? Something that you wish you would have never said? I have done that numerous times. And the one I just made recently was that I promised my dad last Sunday that I would go bowling with him next Sunday (which is today), unfortunately I broke that promise and when I asked my dad if me and my friend Brent can go to the Great Mall, he said no. All because I made a promise to him and destroyed it. I was tired this morning and didn't want to get up. And one thing I don't like doing is going bowling without taking a fresh clean shower. All I want to do is go and tell people about Jesus. And my dad thinks that preaching is by shouting it to people. HEC TO THE NO IT'S NOT!!! It's all about sharing the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ in love with people, not shoving it down their throats. My secondary plan for today would be to go to Golfland and meet my friend Ray that came from Nebraska and share Jesus with him and other people there while I am present. That was my plan. Now I got a text message from my dad telling me that I can't. Now I am stuck at home. But I have an even better plan. I can share Jesus on the internet with the click of a button! How cool is that! Now that it is raining outside, I can share Jesus in the comfort of my own room! Awesome!!! "I tell you the truth, wherever this gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her." Matthew 26:13 Amen. PTL!!!

Today was a great time at witnessing at Golfland. I met my friend Ray and we talked a while about various topics and then later on I met a guy named Craig. I saw him playing DDR which is really popular fast paced dancing genre video game and he was just sweating a ton! But afterwards later he rested on a bench and we talked and talked about things then I said "Craig, can I ask you an interesting question?" He said that I could ask him anything. Then I asked "when you die, what do you think is on the other side, what do you think is out there after we walk out of here?" He just was thinking and thinking and then we talked about it more and more. And then I walked him through the Ten Commandments, and he admitted the sins that he committed. But what surprised me was when I got to the sixth Commandment which was murder he admitted that he did kill someone! I asked who it was that he killed and he told me it was a robber that came into his house. He said he had a gun stored in his house and shot him in the chest then directly in the head. I was shocked when he told me that and I asked him if he was serious and he said yeah. Then I was sharing about Jesus miracles what He said and done then finally the Cross where His blood was spilled for our sins and as I was sharing all of this with him he told me that he was skeptical about all of it. And then I talked about repentance and he wanted more information so then he asked me "how do you repent?" Then I explained more and he understood. He was skeptical about the whole talk about Jesus, the Cross and everything else but I could see in his eyes that he wanted to change. But then after I had to get going so I said bye to Craig and left. God is faithful even when you don't realize it! Amen!!!

Today was just wonderful. I was spending some time with the Lord talking with Him and enjoying His presence at school and reading His Word at lunch and during my classes. And then after school I got into my car and my brother came along with our family friend Akshay (who is a non-believer). And we were waiting for my brother's friend Ivan (Catholic). But right when we were about to leave someone I knew from school asked me if he could get a ride from me. I told him that he could and that he can come in my car. So I drove him to his house, dropped him off and was on our way back to drop off my brother's friends, mark (my brother) would physically punch me in the back of the head while I am driving! That is an extremely dangerous thing to do. And he did it twice in the car. But instead of becoming mad and raising my temper I just gently answered. And while we were driving back home my brother hit me for giving a ride to this student at our school named David. And my brother and his friends say he is really rude and they started using swear words in the car after I dropped him off. But I was doing something kind, and wanted to give him a ride. And my brother would hit me for giving him a ride. And my brother told me that the reason he wanted to give me a ride was because he would be asking obvious questions that he already knew and would have me answer them just to make fun of me. But I whatever I do I do for Jesus and I live for Him alone. Every kind deed is not wasted no matter to what person it was. But I would be continually hi and abused for my brother for doing something kind. And the Word of God says in 1 Peter 3:14 "But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed." I am blessed because I am doing what is right and my brother doesn't like it just because he doesn't like the person I gave a ride to in my car. I love everyone and I love Jesus and I will do what is right in His eyes rather than other people. If I have to suffer my brother hitting and abusing me for the Kingdom of God, so be it. Amen.
