    About God:

    How do you describe the indescribable? If all the seas turned ink, all the plant to writing tools, and all the sky to parchment, it would not be enough to describe God's vastness. That's the God I serve.

    If you're interested in learning more about God, you can leave a message here, you could go to this site and leave a message or you can read on.



    God
  • God loves you (John 3:16).
  • God is holy and just. He punishes all evil and expels it from his presence (Romans 1:18).

    People
  • God, who created everything, made us for himself to find our purpose in fellowship with him (Colossians 1:16).
  • But we rebelled and turned away from God (Isaiah 53:6) The result is separation from God (Isaiah 59:2). The penalty is eternal death (Romans 6:23).

    Christ
  • God became human in the person of Jesus Christ to restore the broken fellowship (Colossians 1:19-20). Christ lived a perfect life (1 Peter 2:22).
  • Christ died as a substitute for us by paying the death penalty for our rebellion (Romans 5:8). He arose (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and is alive today to give us a new life of fellowship with God, now and forever (John 10:10).

    Response
  • I must repent for my rebellion (Matthew 4:17).
  • I must believe Christ died to provide forgiveness and a new life of fellowship with God (John 1:12)
  • I must receive Christ as my Savior and Lord with the intent to obey him. I do this in prayer by inviting him into my life (Revelation 3:20).
    Cost
  • There is no cost to your salvation comes to you freely (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • But it comes at a high cost to God (1 Peter 1:18-19).
  • Ultimately your response is a life of discipleship (Luke 9:23-24).

    Quick thought

    We all have goals so here's what we should do.

     We all need a PLAN OF ACTION!!!
    Let's make our dreams come true
     We have to BELIEVE IN OURSELVES!!!
    There's nothing we can't do
     Put your HEART IN IT!!!
    Even when you're in a dark failure pit
     Just THINK of what you WANT!!!
    somehow, someway, anywhere it'll hit
     Your DREAMS will come TRUE!!!
    There's nothing we can't do
     Plant a tree, paint a house
    Babysit, rasie a mouse
     TRY your HARDEST!!!
    You will succeed
     And your dreams will come true...
    there's nothing you can't do
     The glass is half empty
    the glass is half full
     sometimes your lonely
    or feeling at half hull
     put in your emotions
    your will and your drive
     soon you will see
    that you come alive
     dont give up hope
    when you feel like stopping
     dont pull the rope
    smile and start hopping
     make your friends laugh
    feel like you're happy
     even when your blue
    then you will see
     that your dreams will come true
    never give up your joy or your pride
     no one can love you, hug you, learn from you
    when you hide

    Please don't copy it as I wrote it. yay. Love y'all... remember to BE HAPPY! (Your dreams can come true... theres nothing we can't do)

     "In my distress I called to the LORD ,
    and he answered me.
    From the depths of the grave I called for help,
    and you listened to my cry."

    Meditation #4

       Wouldn't it be cool if when we woke up in the morning, we'd have the attitude of: I'm ready my Lord, what are we going to do today?

    Getting High

       Everyone has their own way of connecting with God. Some of the most common ways that people connect with God are: praying, singing, reflecting, church, reading your Bible, and writing about Him.

       Personally, I get the best spiritual high by writing and reflecting. But, everyone's way of connecting with God differs, it just depends on the person.


      If you'd like to share your way of connecting, feel welcome to.

    Meditation #3

    Luke 3:32

    If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' love those who love them.

    Do others know?

       Have you ever wondered if you're really a Christian? This question plagued me for years. I was told I was saved at age 5 ( though I didn't remember it ), but I never knew for certian that I was going to heaven.
       I was always haunted by these words, 'You know without a doubt when you are saved. If you cannot answer when asked if you are saved, it is like not being able to answer when asked if you are married.'
       Luckily, I've gone to a Bible camp every summer. I always came out of it changed for the better, but I never had an answer to my question.
       Finally, this last summer, my counselor said this, ( probably not even realizing how much I needed it ) 'Salvation is not a feeling. Satan can trick you into thinking that you are not saved.' I thought about this more and more, thinking that it does sound like a trick the Devil would play. It would keep a Christian in a constant doubt, and therefore more depressed ( not what God wants ).
      
       So how do you know wether other people are Christians? What is their lifestyle like? This is not always the best way to tell, though. ( i.e. they could be a new, struggling Christian, or going through a 'down' time ) Another way to tell is, does he/she let other people know that he/she is a Christian? ( though this also doesn't always work, many claim to be Christians that are not, for even demon worshippers wear crosses. )
       If you say that you are a Christian, but do not live like one, then you are not living for God. God does not want Christians who shove their light under a bowl so that no one can see their light ( What passage was that? ). John 3 reads:

    19This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God."
     
       And there I leave you.

    Are you a real?

     Are you a real Christian? Do you honestly belive and live in/through Christ?

     I go to a private, Catholic school. We pray three times a day, attend Mass on Thursdays, and have a religion class at least three times a week, and yet the kids arent real believers. They don't even lie and say they are... sadly, I don't know how much I live through Christ either. I believe in God and all that jazz, i just don't know how much i would sacrifice, how much I could sacrifice, and for that i feel really guilty.

     My friend was telling me about Buddhisum (sorry, i really dont know how to spell) and it sounded great. Nirvana and karma and all that... but when i really thought about it, I couldn't bring myself to turn away from MY God. It really got me thinking.

     If I turned to Buddha, would I be worshiping another God, or my God in a different form?

     Furthermore, are there different Heavens for different religions?

     All I know is that imagining myself turning to another God, whether it be MY God in a different form or a differnent god (even though there isnt one) made me want to just sob. I couldn't do that! I couldn't do that if I tried! Wouldn't that be like betrayal? I've worship, prayed, thought with MY God, that would be the ultimate of nastiness to just turn away from Him like that! It really upset me (as corny as it sounds) because I just got this image of a man (who oddly enough resembled the paintings of Jesus I've seen) giving me a look of utter disgust as if to say "How could you even think of turning away from me?!" And, I don't know how. I couldn't... I just couldn't. I've shared good times with MY God. I don't want another god, and furthermore... there isn't another god.

     But my evil little mind can't help but wonder...

     Please, someone tell me I'm not so wrong! Hasn't anyone else ever wondered something like this? Is thinking something like this as bad as I think it is or am i just overreacting? As non-evil as it may be... I just am in awe of my commitment. I didn't think I was that bound to Jesus.

    Truth or Comfort?

       I'd like response over this post. What do you believe in doing when you are offered this choice: Truth or Comfort?
       Do you tell a 'white lie', and unsure that you won't hurt anyone's feelings, or do you tell the truth as you believe it? Imagine you go to school, and a girl asks how you think of the way that they are dressed. She is wearing one of those shirts that makes you afraid to look at her. Do you tell her that her shirt disgusts you and run the risk of hurting her feelings, or do you say it looks great ( a lie ) and she will probably continue wearing such shirts.
       I won't give my opinion on this until I have some feed back. This is a hard issue, I know.
