This week we will allow tweens and teens to speak out about whatever is on their minds.
As a child, my parents taught me to trust God with my life because he cares for me and loves me immensely. In my own experience and discovery of God, I have learned that God rarely performs miracles the same way each time I have needed one. Even with my knowledge of his sovereignty, I often find myself wishing that God would create a miracle for me like he did a day, a month, or a year ago.
Lately, I have been going through a very difficult season in my life. This particular issue has been bothering me my entire life. I have been praying, believing God, confessing scriptures, and worshiping. Usually, by now, doing all these things would have brought resolve. This time, the issue persists but I hear God’s still voice telling me to keep going and that he has already delivered me. So, I have a choice to make. Will I believe the situation that seems to persist or will I simply trust. In my heart, I trust God, but I daily find myself fighting against negative thoughts and effects of this situation.
My choice is to wait for God………..or continue to allow him to wait on me which, I am sure is a more accurate depiction in this case. Will God deliver me? I know he will. Can I trust his timing? I must!
Trust in general is difficult; especially when I have to trust human beings. To me, trust in God should be simple, seeing that he has a flawless track record of being trustworthy. I guess there are times when you have to make the decision to trust in spite of how you feel, and for me, this is one of those times.

When I was a kid I spent time cooking with my Mom and Dad. It was a great time for bonding and it allowed me the opportunity to learn to cook the foods that I enjoy without having to rely on anyone else.
In today’s fast food society, it is even more important that you learn to cook. Knowing how to cook will be helpful in college, when you move out on your own, and when you start families of your own. If you want to understand and control your diet, it is a good idea to learn how to cook and prepare your own meals. Also, do not be afraid to experiment with spices and seasonings.
Also, for those of you who enjoy science, cooking can help you to understand chemistry. Chemistry and cooking are alike in that you learn quickly which foods, spices, fruits and vegetables can and cannot be paired together and why. Some foods are alkaline and some foods are acidic. Understanding food and learning to blend foods and spices can be fun and educational. Cooking is fun and has scientific appeal that everyone can enjoy.
Ask an adult to allow you to help them cook. If you are a young person who knows how to cook, leave a comment about who taught you how to cook. Also, tell me if you think that it’s important to know how to cook.
Remember, I love you and I am praying for you.
According to the American Dental Association, toothbrushes should be replaced every three to four months or when the bristles are damaged. It may also be a good idea to replace your toothbrush if you have been sick with the flu.
How often do you replace your toothbrush? Why or why not?
