Back!

Sorry I've  been gone for a while with Easter and everything! Tomorrow My youth pastor is leaving the church to work at another one with his soon to be wife, they wanted to start fresh :'( We are having a huge going away/wedding shower party tomorrow. It's hard to trust God sometimes when the ones you love the most seem to be leaving. That's why it's important to keep our Eyes on Christ so that when others leave or slowly fade out of our life we have one Person/Savior that is always there. I will probably never get used to or understand why people leave when we seem to need them most, or become really close to them, but that is why I'm human and God is God :) He has a perfect plan :)

Abortion :(

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said:

‘Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even 1 year old and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together.

So the doctor said: ‘Ok and what do you want me to do?’

She said: ‘I want you to end my pregnancy, and I’m counting on your help with this.’

The doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the lady: ‘I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you too.’

She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued: ‘You see, in order for you not to have to take care 2 babies at the same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill one of them, it doesn’t matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.

The lady was horrified and said: ‘No doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!

‘I agree’, the doctor replied. ‘But you seemed to be OK with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.’

The doctor smiled, realizing that he had made his point.

He convinced the mom that there is no difference in killing a child that’s already been born and one that’s still in the womb.

The crime is the same!

If you agree, please SHARE. Together we can help save precious lives!

“Love says I sacrifice myself for the good of the other person. Abortion says I sacrifice the other person for the good of myself…”

Jesus sacrificed Himself for the good of sinners! That’s perfect love!

No eye has seen...

"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him" 1 Corinthians 2:9 I was listening to the Mortal Coil I and II on AIO  Adventures in Odyssey (that's the link) and that verse came up and I was thought the most amazing thing that I can think of is NOTHING compared what heaven is like.

Chapel

We had a school-wide chapel today for Easter and it was AMAZING! The Elementary, middle and Secondary schools were all in one place to worship Jesus and remember what He did for us! Having so many christians congregating in one place for the same goal just floored me when I thought how great Heaven must be (with no speakers right over my head :p) It's hard to explain unless you've been in the same situation. Easter is 4 days away!

Good friday!

Good friday is coming up! To me it's always a somewhat happy day because I know that Jesus didn't stay dead and that He rose three days later. I can't imagine what it was like for all those early followers when they heard He was dead and buried. Jesus told them He would rise again but it must have been hard to keep that in mind when told the news. Also I couldn't imagine their faces when He rose again. In a way it seems easier for us now, the story isn't over by any means but we now have a Savior that has saved us and we can trust we will make it through each day.

Who Says?

I ADORE the song Who says! Each time I hear it I think of how God looks at us and with Him all things are possible.We are princes and princess, sons and daughters of the King of Kings! To Him we are perfect just the way we are, out flaws and all.   When we are with Him we never have to worry if our hair looks right or whether our teeth are brushed. It isn't important, He looks at the heart, all that matters is that we are spending time with Him and listening for His voice. As humans its hard to ignore other people's looks, but to God we are all precious. We should treat each other just as we would a queen or king. I don't know if this made ANY scene at ALL but I hope you enjoyed it :)

Here is the link to the song

Idolatry

I got tickets to Selena Gomez's concert today!!! YAYAYAY! It's amazing how easily something can become first in your life instead of God. You idolize them or it, it's stepping out on the promise you made to God (aka Covenant). It's like Adultery, you stop looking to the one who gives you strength, and who you promised to be with forever then pay attention and lean on others who can't do anything but make your life worse. Well that's all that I have to say for today :p

more randomness :p

writer's block really sucks! I just can't think of anything really good to say :p I'm watching Back To The Future 3, it's so tensely annoying! :p It's a good thing our lives aren't movies otherwise we would all have had heart attack by age 12 :p Tomorrow is Sunday! I can't wait to talk to everyone and learn more about God :) It's amazing how I can be so stressed and have so much going on, but when I walk into the doors everything feels so calm and it's like you gain support to help you through the week. It shows just how important being with other believers can be. Instead of leaving more depressed then you were before you can be encouraged instead!

Prayer

I was just remembering my stay in the hospital. Many times it would stress me out so badly! Then I would go to my room, close the door and pray. Such a peace came over me that I cant explain. God came and comforted me in those hard times. He was In front of me, guiding the way. Behind me, pushing me on. Beside me talking to me like a friend. And above me watching over me every step of the way. Without Him I would not be who I am today.

REALLY RANDOM!

I love school! Isn't that an odd thing to say? :p Not the work but the sense of community and having so many role model teachers. I defiantly don't go to a perfect school by any means, there are all the normal problems but most of the time they are handled in a godly way. There is a reason the bible says to walk with the wise, it really does make a difference. It may seem odd but a lot of the time I hang out with the teachers, they have insight to so many things and many of them will listen when I blabber endlessly and a lot of the time we will inspire each other :p It helps me get through the day and to not go crazy lol Wow, boy can I talk!

Cake :)

I just finished making a yummy coffee cake. It looks really good! I first tried making another resipie and forgot to add something and It was a complete bomb! Our lives are the same way. Everyone we meet, everything we do (no matter how insignificant it seems at the time) shapes who we are for the better or worse. God has everything planed, every meeting, every trial EVERYTHING! So when we think "This can't have a purpose" We just have to follow God knowing that He knows best =D

hmm....

Honestly, I don't have much to write about except that school has started again :p boo! I know it is important and I see how but still... WHY!!!! :p Hmm... i guess that's the same with trials, we may not know the end result and they can even seem pointless at times but the truth is, they are building us into who God wants us to be. It sorta reminds me of one of my fav songs by Miley Cyrus called the Climb. We may lose faith or sometimes we feel like were losing to our problems but God holds us up :)

Here's the link to the song if you want it :)
