My name is Amanda Hedrick. In the Fall of 2009, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior, and my life has never been the same since. I started attending a little in number, but mighty in faith church called Kokomo Christian Fellowship at that time, and a sweet French lady there would pull me aside over and over again and remind me:
“Don’t be a bad imitation of a rose. If God has you to be a poppy, be a poppy!”
Her words, dripping with love, sank into my heart; it is my prayer that I can live a purposeful life that finds and honors Jesus in everything…in wintertime walks and sizzling sunsets and dingy dishes. In the triumphs and trials that come from living in a sin-sick world. My prayer is that I will passionately love my Savior with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength, and that I will love my neighbor as myself. I hope that through my life Jesus will show how strong and good He is.
I hope you will be encouraged each time you visit my blog!
I leave you with this:
“My soul finds rest in God alone. My salvation comes from Him alone; He alone is my Rock and my Salvation. He is my Fortress. I will never be shaken.”
