The Hope Series: Day Two: That's What Faith Can Do

Pinned Image


After listening to Olga's testimony vlog over at her blog, Our Extraordinary Life, I felt the need to write my second blog post in "The Hope Series."  Olga had SO much hope and faith that she would have a baby boy, that she ended up becoming pregnant with one after overcoming all of the odds.  Her story is such an inspiration and will fill you with so much hope if you happen to be going through the same situation of trying for a certain gender of baby or if you happen to be going through ANY difficult situation.  This song popped in my head after listening to her vlog.  Olga had a dream, prayed for it, believed, never gave up hope, and as a result, saw miracles happen right before her eyes.  Please watch her video found here and be filled with HOPE.

What Faith Can Do

Kutless
Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes
And make a new beginning

Anyone can feel the ache
You think it's more than you can take
But you're stronger
Stronger than you know

Don't you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

I've seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn't ever end
Even when the sky is falling
I've seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That's what faith can do

It doesn't matter what you've heard
Impossible is not a word
It's just a reason
For someone not to try

Everybody's scared to death
When they decide to take that step
Out on the water
It'll be alright

Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

I've seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn't ever end
Even when the sky is falling
I've seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That's what faith can do
Overcome the odds
You don't have a chance
(That's what faith can do)
When the world says you can't
It'll tell you that you can

I've seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn't ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I've seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That's what faith can do
That's what faith can do

Even if you fall sometimes
You will have the strength to rise

Liebster Blog Award Part 3

The sweet Jessica from Letting Go, Letting God gave me my third Liebster Blog Award. Since I already participated, I'm going to simply answer the questions that she gave me. Thanks, Jessica!

1. If you could learn to do anything, what would it be ?
I have been recently wanting to learn how to crochet.  I want to start out with crocheting a blanket!

2. What is your dream job ?
I am currently student teaching to become an elementary teacher...but if I were to choose something else, I would want to own a bakery or shop of my own selling organic and natural products.  I would also love a job that works with animals. 

3. What is your best or idea of a perfect date ?
The perfect date in my eyes is really low key.  I love to go out to dinner, get dessert, and then rent a movie.

4. Describe yourself in 3 words. Why do these words define you ?
Loving, shy, and creative.  I try to care for all people.  I am an introvert.  I like to use my creativity when teaching dance, baking, and doing crafts and projects. 

5. What do you miss most about being a child ?
I miss everything about being a child, but most of all, I miss the care-free, full of faith attitude that one has as a child.  The faith in Santa Clause.  The strong faith in God (which seems to weaken as you grow older).  And the faith that your parents will always protect you.

6. When was the last time you were nervous ?
Oh gosh.  I am nervous all the time.  I am a very anxious person.   

7. What chore do you despise ?
I despise putting clothes away.  I always have a heap of clean clothes staring at me at all times until the heap gets so tall, that I am forced to put them away. 

8. If you could meet anyone living or dead who would it be ?
Definitely Jesus.

9. Morning or night person
I like really early morning (6-8) and evening (6-11).  I don't really like mid morning and late night.  Weird.

10. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be ?
Hmm...probably by the ocean.  South or North Carolina would be perfect.

11. Why are you a blogger ?
I want to encourage others through my posts!
