so blessed...

I don't have much time to write at the moment, but i just wanted to say a few words. God is so good.

Seriously, this whole idol experience has been an incredible one. Maybe I didn't get as far as I would have hoped, but honestly, I don't have one complaint about it. I had the opportunity to be a part of my favorite television show, I've made some incredible friends, learned a TON about myself, and even gained a bit of confidence through it all!

It's funny how being told "you have no courage" actually causes that courage to rise up in you. I blogged about this revelation actually just after my trip to Hollywood (of course I wasn't able to talk about where I had just been, or what I was referring to... but if you want to read- it see my post from 11.21.08)

More than anything, I've learned how sometimes, it's stepping out in your fear that brings the most personal growth! Honestly, nothing compares to the nerves I felt throughout this whole process. American Idol was me stepping out in my fears... and looking back over my time there in Hollywood, I feel such a sense of peace and accomplishment. God is good.... and He ultimately is the one directing my path - whether is on Idol, or not! :)

That's all for now folks!

I thank Yah you have been spared from the glamour and cut-throat corruption of Hollywood world. I pray that now you will focus on things that really matter, taking eyes of temporary things that are passing away. It is NOT about image but about serving our wonderful Machiach Yeshua.

The Hebrew Word for Idol in the Strong's Concordance is as follows:

8251 shiqquwts shik-koots' or shiqquts {shik-koots'}; from 8262; disgusting, i.e. filthy; especially idolatrous or (concretely) an idol:-- abominable filth (idol, -ation), detestable (thing).

457 'eliyl el-eel' apparently from 408; good for nothing, by anal. vain or vanity; specifically an idol:--idol, no value, thing of nought.
