Love that gives LIFE

“Finally,  brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things. ” Philippians 4:8

In the past couple months, I was feeling this emptiness. I had no idea if this was the cause of my grandmother passing away in December, or maybe it was just the fact that I’m 26 years old, and still  feel like I have no idea where my life is going. I couldn’t seem to figure it out, whatever it was. All I knew was that each day, even though I covered it up with a smile in public, I was never truly happy. Not even my recent trip to the beach could give me fufillment. I mean, though I loved having that relaxing time with my family, something was missing, but what? I read devotionals every day, I constantly prayed and asked the Lord to fill me, but all I kept hearing constantly were these words in my head:

“Ashley, you’re not good enough.”

“Ashley, you’re never going to get your life together.”

“Ashley, you’ll never be good enough to become everything God wants you to be, and you’ll never be able to become His disciple.”

Even words as horrible as these:

 

“Ashley, you’re a burden, and you’re just hurting your family.”

 

Words that I knew weren’t coming from Jesus, but from the devil himself who seeks to destroy people. Then, one day, I was so thirsty for my Lord, and I knew He was the only way I could fill this emptiness, so I put on some praise music while I was working. Guess what? My prayer was answered. I felt this overwhelming happiness and love. The devil and the emptiness I had been feeling for so long had fled. It was like God was saying, “My dear Ashley, all you needed to do was let go of the world, and come to Me.” I recently read a quote from a sister in Christ that I believe to be so true: “God has created us in such a wonderful way that what we feed our minds on and meditate on becomes a part of our spirit.” My dear friends, supporters of this blog, and anyone reading this: Maybe you’re feeling the same emptiness I was. Well, I’m going to tell you right now that you could go to the ends of the earth searching for all kinds of motivation, and things of this earth to fill you temporarily, but nothing is going to make you happy like God does. I encourage you: Seek Him. God says to your empty soul: “My child, come to Me.”  John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not PERISh, but have ETERNAl LIFE.

 

In Christ’s Love,

Ashley N. Moulin

One Year for Friends On Wheelz

Hey guys, it’s Ash & Eb. Sorry it’s been awhile. We just wanted to do a blog in honor of our blogs one year anniversary and Cerebral Palsy Awareness month. 

There are many different types of CP and everyone has different experiences. Most able bodied people would think that having CP was a bad thing. but it’s not a bad thing for either of us.  We have lived our lives to the fullest. We’ve gone skiing, surfing, and to college. We’ve never let anything stop us from achieving our goals in life. In a way we see having CP as a gift because we wouldn’t have had the experiences we have without it. We became friends because of it and we wouldn’t change a thing. Like we said for each one of us with CP every experience is different. Some are more severe than others. We’re all still beautiful people that God put on this Earth for a reason. We believe by telling  our stories that we are helping others. We encourage others to do the same. By speaking out we are making a difference. It doesn’t matter if you have a disabity or not. You have a story to tell.

We just wanted to thank you so much for your support over this last year. We hope you continue the journey with us because we enjoy we enjoy writing for you and encouraging you. We couldn’t have made it this far without you.💕

Xo, Eb & Ash
