I am one of those people that loves a good action movie. The war movies (The Green Berets, The Longest Day), spy movies (James Bond), old westerns (El Dorado, Rio Lobo, The Searchers, Horse Soldiers), fantasy movies even (Star Wars), mysteries (Alfred Hitchcock). I love a good thrill. I love old black and white movies. Movies with Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, John Wayne, etc. The most recent movies I have seen in the theater: Dark Knight - an amazing psychological thriller (in my humble opinion), Traitor - a pretty cool movie. I enjoyed it, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 - it was surprisingly good. I won't ever watch it again tho, Bolt - the best darn animated movie I have seen in a LONG time. It was SO cute and funny, Twilight - totally wasn't expecting this movie tobe good. Surprise! I LOVED it. I am what they would call a movie person. I like most movies, but there are very few movies that I love -the ones that I could watch day after day and they never grow old. Only over the past 2 or 3 years however have I become the biggest fan of chick flicks. I've always liked them, obviously, BUT they were always those cheesy love stories like Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Princess Diaries, Ella Enchanted, etc. Don't get me wrong those are cute movies. I'm 19 now... so not my favorites anymore. I love "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," "The Notebook" - the epic love story. =P But there is no movie like "Pride and Prejudice." WHOA DUDE. =) That movie makes me feel something... something that no other movie can make me feel. It is my favorite movie of any genre. Something about Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. Depsite their faults, their false judgments of each other, they fall in love. Perfectly and unconditionaly fall in love. =) There... now you know my favorite movie. The book is quite amazing too. In fact, I think I just might begin reading it again.

Peace yo. =)

The Jealousy and Love of My God

My Lord is jealous for His people. He is enthralled with their beauty. Each creation with it's own beauty. His view is not distorted like yours and mine is. He sees each of us as a mother sees her newborn baby after giving birth. All gross and icky out of the womb... that mother only sees her beautiful child and is enthralled with his/her beauty. He wants us... no my God is not selfish. He is selfless. How then can He be jealous for me? He is my Father, my Master. I belong to Him already. He only wants what is His to being with. Yet, I run so far away from Him. “How often I wanted to gather your[Jerusalem's] children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing!" - Matthew 23:37b(NKJV). Oh, how I have forsaken my Lord. He calls and calls to me, but I am too content with the apathetic life I lead. I'm too afraid to return to Him, for I know He will do great things in my life. Joshua felt the same way apparently. In Joshua 1, God, time after time, tells Joshua "I will be with you, I will not leave you nor forsake you." (Joshua 1:5, 9) He tells him over and over again to "Be strong and of good courage" (Joshua 1:6, 9). In verse 7 God says,"Be strong and very courageous." Despite your fears, your flaws, your sins... Your God will NEVER leave you NOR forsake you. Ever. It really is that simple. It's His promise to you and I. To all generations. His love floods our lives everyday, but we're too busy to even notice it. Sad, huh? All that and He still loves us. "The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” - Zephaniah 3:17(NKJV).

For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God. - Exodus 20:5
For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God. - Deuteronomy 4:24

We turn away from Him and create our own idols. Placing God second, third, fourth, fifth on our list. Instead of taking away His love while we chase after other lovers, He never leaves us nor forsakes us. As in the story of Hosea, God commanded Hosea to to take a wife, but not just any woman was to be his wife. God told Hosea to take Gomer, a harlot, to be his wife. So he obeyed the command of the Lord. "For [Gomer] said, 'I will go after my lovers...' " And she did. She cheated on Hosea time and time again. Later... "I will go and return to my first husband, for then it was better for me than now.' " 

I find the Bible to be a whole love story. and not for the obvious reasons that are running through your head right now. Throughout the entire Old Testament all I ever see are the Israelites praising God for deliverance and then a split second later grumbling and complaining and cursing God to back to rejoicing over His mercy. God continually blessed His chosen people and they STILL rebelled. They STILL complained against Him! After all He did for them, they just were never satisfied. It was all temporary. When they crossed the Red Sea (escaping from Egypt), they praised God! Then when they arrived in the desert with no food or water (completely forgetting how powerful there God was! He had just parted the GIGANTIC Red Sea), they immediately begin to grumble and say how they would be better off in bondage instead of starving to death in the desert! Oh how quickly we forget the Lord's Providence! 

And despite all these short comings, God forgave them. Every time. He never left them or forsook them. He loved them and showed compassion and mercy. All throughout the OT!! Every time I open up my Bible, I see some subtitle over a chapter saying "The Renewal of Israel" and "A Call to Repentance." Over and over again. He never leaves them. Now that is true love. 

"Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; For love is as strong as death, Jealousy as cruel as the grave..." - Song of Solomon 8:6

"Many waters cannot quench love, nor can the floods drown it." - Song of Solomon 8:7

"I am my beloved's and his desire is toward me." - Song of Solomon 7:10

My God is jealous for my love. I break His heart every time I replace Him. His jealousy is righteous. I am His.

Am I Insane?!

Am I insane for taking such pride in the work of others? ha. I know! It's crazy! I don't even really know him. To be apart of this and to know that he is too... whether our paths cross or not(and they have)... to know we are on the same side. I am encouraged by his faith. I am so proud of the way he holds himself. Putting Christ first... not caring what everyone else says. Standing strong... I go around bragging about him. Like I can claim what he does as my own. So, am I insane? I don't know. Maybe if I was going around acting like he was my best friend or something. Acting like he does the things he does because of me. then that might be a problem. But I don't think being proud OF him is wrong. It's like a mother with her kids. Yes I can't believe I just said i was like his mother. That's awkward. you get the point. He really makes me smile. :) I pray the Lord lets our paths cross again. I want to hear MORE of his testimony. *sigh* I really can't describe the way it makes me feel. It's like my soul is beaming from within. :) God is good. All glory goes to Him. and I have this feeling of smiling on the inside. :) It's quite divine. peace yo. <3

Find out what it means to me.

RESPECT: due regard for the feelings, wishes, rights, or traditions of others. emphasis on the
*regard for the feelings of others* not just regard, but *due* regard.

take a lesson. you want my respect? then respect me. it's a mutual thing. period.

My feelings matter. I don't care what you say. THEY DO. You disrespect me? Ok. You do that. Just don't get mad at me, if I "forget" to respect YOUR feelings. Oops. 

I'm sick of being treated like I don't matter. I do. PERIOD. 

Stop walking all over me. Not happening anymore. It's NOT happening EVER again. The End.

"Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne and myself have founded great empires, but on what did those creations of our genius rest? Upon force. But Jesus founded his on love. This very day millions would die for him. I have inspired multitudes with enthusiastic devotion: they would die for me. But to do it, I had to be present with the electric influence of my looks, my words, my voice. When I saw men and spoke to them I lit up the flame of devotion in their hearts. But Jesus Christ by some mysterious influence, even through the lapse of eighteen centuries, so draws the hearts of men towards him that thousands at a word would rush through fire and flood for him, not counting their lives dear to themselves." - Napoleon


Life is bigger than we can imagine. Joy-filled. Laughter. Silliness. Love. ♥ Beautiful. =) Blessed. Life is a blessing. It is a gift. God could take your breath at any moment. He alone holds the key. I wouldn't want anyone else to hold that key. I will dance. I will sing. I will laugh. I will smile, until my last breath. All that I've been through in the past few months, and I can say that my life is incredible. Who flippin cares about all this drama? I'm saving it for my llama! whoo. lol I learned a long time ago, it's just me and God. Me and Him. And I'm perfectly fine with that. He's all I need. No family, no friends. JUST me and Jesus. And then one day...I will find my Mister. ♥ Mhm. He's gonna be everything that I'm not and I'm gonna be everything that he's not. So that we will complete each other. We won't be perfect, but we'll be *perfect* for each other. I can't wait to meet him. =D

God's Will

What is Your will for me Lord? Should I stay? or Should I move on? It's all up to You. Entirely up to You. My heart is broken before You. My soul is screaming to get out. It does not like this world or the ways of this world. It does not like being caged inside this body. It wants to fly. It wants to soar. It wants to do the will of the One who created it! What is it that hinders me from doing Your will? Is it me? Is it others? Is it my attitude? Do I still have something to learn before I can move forward? Father, teach me Your ways so I can always walk in your truths. Give me Your eyes, Jesus. Please. I used to hate it that I was so sensitive to Your Spirit. Now I miss it. Give me Your heart, Jesus. I want the things that make You cry, make me cry! I want to be broken before You all of my days. I do not want to be a hypocrite! Give me YOU, so that I can fade away completely. I want to do Your will. Always and forever. Show me Your will. 

Beautiful Soul

Its fairly ironic that I'm only told I'm beautiful when I'm wearing make-up. I thought we were all made in the image of God. How come I'm only beautiful to you when I'm beautiful to the world? I should be beautiful to you all the time, cuz I am fearfully and wonderfully made. And I was made without the make-up.

God created me with a beautiful soul.

Is There Life Out There?!

Alrighty, so I think this is pretty interesting. I've been meaning to write this for a while now, just never got around to it. When I was little I remember asking my mom if there could possibly be a whole 'nother universe out there that had a Solar System and an Earth, etc. What if there were people and they were just like us and they had the Bible. Would it be the same Bible as ours? I guess I meant like a parallel universe type deal. If there was another system like ours, what about the Bible Characters? Did Moses live another life? Cuz In my thinking if they had a Bible it would have to be exactly like ours. So, I've painted a picture. I'm hoping you understand? 

Well, a few weeks ago, at one of the Leadership Meetings Pastor Mark came and spoke to us [Oh my goodness, I could have sat there ALL night long and listened to him. What an incredible man of God! If that's anything what it will be like sitting at the feet of Jesus having Him teach, I can NOT wait to get to heaven! =]. And he talked to us about the end times. So, for the sake of this one topic I will try to stick to only the things that apply to my point. lol

Is there life on other planets? Well, if there is it's not intelligent life, like humans. The earth is positioned so perfectly that any closer to or any further from the sun and we would burn up or freeze. It's incredible when you think about it. 

Pastor Mark read this verse and this is what answered my question about "a parallel universe."

"For Christ suffered once for sins..." 1 Peter 3:18

I found this verse as well:

"For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all..." - Romans 6:10

If there was life "out there" Christ would have to die for them. These verses state that He only died once. I find that quite interesting. It makes me feel even smaller and more minute. 

The End. =)

[I need to get this off my chest]

**Ambiguous terms are used so as not to give away the identity of said persons. (i.e. they, them, their...)**

I will always be getting in trouble til the day I die. I'm very candid and I speak my mind. I am compassionate despite my rather blunt words. Those who know me, know that I would give anyone the the last dollar in my wallet. I will always go the extra mile for you. I don't care how many times you've screwed me over, with the grace of God I will forgive you. I refuse to lower myself to your standards. I may speak in anger, but somehow no matter what I say God will use it for His glory.

I talked to my best friend about this the other night. I've become terrified to be completely honest with anyone because of all the people in my past who: came into my life, screwed me over, then left. All the people who I used to trust with everything inside of me. I laugh now. I was so blind.

A best friend, or so I thought, said to me once, "We won't be friends in college." I was so completely shocked they told this to me. I said, "How do you know that?" Their reply, "Because we just won't be." Our friendship went downhill from that day forward. And now we are both in college and despite my efforts to stay in touch we aren't "friends" anymore. I wonder why? DUH!

Many friends of mine have begun dating and all of a sudden they can't have a social life anymore. Friends who you could always talk to, but now they aren't available anymore. I can tell you right now. You ain't dating me, if you make me throw my friends to the curb. I think some people just might be a little unstable emotionally. Yeah...

Oh, and then when they break up with their b/f or g/f (whichever it may be) they all of a sudden come running back to Kelly for some company. They start calling and texting me all the time wanting to hang out cuz they're lonely now.

Oh but wait! They found someone else! Bye bye Kelly! "This time I really I am in love." "I've never known anyone like this before in my life!" Two months later... *ringg* *ringg* "Kelly? I miss you, we need to hang sometime soon." Yadda, yadda, yadda. So on and so on.

Back to the forgiveness thing. I honestly have forgiven them. Sadly, I don't have the ability to forgive AND forget like God can. Here's my theory: God's love is unconditional, right? Well, all the times we screw Him over and He still loves us and remembers our past no more! Know what I think? If we could actually forget the wrongdoings people have done to us, we would be able to love so purely! It's hard for me to sit here and tell you I love these people! I don't think I could tell it to them to their face. I'm just being honest. If I had no remembrance of what they did to me, I would be able to truly love them like Jesus does. Sometimes, I think that would be an awesome thing to do (to forget). BUT then I realize that all the times you screwed me over, I learned a lesson. And every time I see you I remember what happened and what I learned from it. And I have to ask God to help me keep my mouth shut so I don't say something I will regret.

That doesn't make it any easier. Not one bit. Am I still hurt? Yes. Is there bitterness, none. I got rid of that mess. Bitterness is like a cancer: deadly.

Because of these friendships or I guess I should say "friendships," I am even more hesitant to allow myself to fall for a guy. And there are a few guys that I could date right now. But no one will ever know, because I am not going to get hurt again. I have to guard my heart, because others won't. I need someone who will protect my heart. Not take some of it away.

I'm too scared to take a chance. Do I blame that on them? Yes. But mostly I blame it on me. I shouldn't be so scared, but I am.

Despite my rather tough exterior and attitude, I am such a broken spirit and your lack of character actually is a good thing for me. It keeps me at the feet of Jesus. For that I thank God for your distrustful ways. See, bad can be used for good.

So to all you who screwed me over and laughed while you were doing it, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the faith you put into our friendships. It's such a wonderful feeling to know that your friends love you that much. So, once again. Thank you!

Why in the world...

do people want Palin to run for President in 2012? WHY? I see no logic. None whatsoever. I personally think Huckabee would make a tremendously better President than Palin. And I don't want Palin to be Huckabee's VP either. Don't get me wrong. I like Palin. I think she's hilarious. BUT I don't think that she is experienced enough. Just like I think Obama isn't experienced enough. Apparently, the American people don't care about experience. I do. That is why if Palin is on the ticket in 2012, I won't vote for her. The End.

Ezekiel 36:16-38

Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying:
“Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their own ways and deeds; to Me their way was like the uncleanness of a woman in her customary impurity.
Therefore I poured out My fury on them for the blood they had shed on the land, and for their idols with which they had defiled it.
So I scattered them among the nations, and they were dispersed throughout the countries; I judged them according to their ways and their deeds.
When they came to the nations, wherever they went, they profaned My holy name—when they said of them, ‘These are the people of the LORD, and yet they have gone out of His land.’
But I had concern for My holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations wherever they went.
“Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “I do not do this for your sake, O house of Israel, but for My holy name’s sake, which you have profaned among the nations wherever you went.
And I will sanctify My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in their midst; and the nations shall know that I am the LORD,” says the Lord GOD, “when I am hallowed in you before their eyes.
For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land.
Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.
Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God.
I will deliver you from all your uncleannesses. I will call for the grain and multiply it, and bring no famine upon you.
And I will multiply the fruit of your trees and the increase of your fields, so that you need never again bear the reproach of famine among the nations.
Then you will remember your evil ways and your deeds that were not good; and you will loathe yourselves in your own sight, for your iniquities and your abominations.
Not for your sake do I do this,” says the Lord GOD, “let it be known to you. Be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel!”
‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “On the day that I cleanse you from all your iniquities, I will also enable you to dwell in the cities, and the ruins shall be rebuilt.
The desolate land shall be tilled instead of lying desolate in the sight of all who pass by.
So they will say, ‘This land that was desolate has become like the garden of Eden; and the wasted, desolate, and ruined cities are now fortified and inhabited.’
Then the nations which are left all around you shall know that I, the LORD, have rebuilt the ruined places and planted what was desolate. I, the LORD, have spoken it, and I will do it.”
‘Thus says the Lord GOD: “I will also let the house of Israel inquire of Me to do this for them: I will increase their men like a flock.
Like a flock offered as holy sacrifices, like the flock at Jerusalem on its feast days, so shall the ruined cities be filled with flocks of men. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.”’”

Sounds like even though our nation and the church are going through some difficult times, if we stay strong and don't waver in our faith and in our strength God will restore our country. =)

I wish...

..I knew exactly how you felt. I want to get inside your head, so to speak. I want to know your dreams. I want to know what moves you. The things that make you passionate. That one picture that takes your breath away. I want to know the deepest desires of your heart. I want to know the song that makes you cry. I want to know what inspires you. Music? People? Words? Computers? I want to know everything about you. I want you to want to know everything about me. I want to tell you my deepest thoughts. I want to tell you what inspires me to greatness and to the things completely beyond the scope of my imagination. But I'm too scared to tell you because what if you just laugh? What if you don't care? What if you don't understand? How will you respond? No one ever wants to be serious these days. I've become a very serious person. Certain people bring out the real me though. I still don't share my deepest thoughts and desires with them. I want to share them with you though. I'm afraid you won't care. I wish I didn't feel this way... but I can't stop myself. I've tried and tried... I want to be your everything, but I'm too scared to let myself completely fall for a guy. I'm scared I'll get hurt. My heart has so many scars. I don't want another one. Please. I just want to be the one that takes your breath away.

Soul Over Mind

What is it that pulls us so deeply within? A force that is unnamed. A continuing effect for all eternity. A deep provoking thought? Something only the soul knows. The mind can’t comprehend it. A disconnect. Heart and mind are separated. The mind knows only knowledge and facts. The heart knows only love and faith. Battles emerge. Fight after fight. Whispers in the dark. Voices in the night won’t be silent. Confusion. Confusion. Is science the only truth man can know? Or is there something else? Is there really something deeper? Something bigger? Heart battles with mind. Mind battles with heart. Which one will prevail? Yesterday truth was black and white. Today it is grey. How can truth really be known? Heart speaks of wonder. Soul dreams of unimaginable dreams. Mind speaks of only facts -- knowledge written in books by men. But those dreams can’t be tamed. They won’t be silent. They soar above theories, hypotheses, and speculations. Facts that aren’t really facts. The soul knows. It knows the truth. The mind thinks it knows, but it’s perception of reality and truth has been distorted. What has warped the simple mind into submission of an idealistic view? How does something so absurd become something so accepted? What’s more, something accepted so blindly. An unrealistic impression that is taken mindlessly as truth. The soul screams within begging to be heard. Faith versus facts. Believing versus seeing. Is seeing really believing? Or does that just create another fact? Isn’t believing actually seeing? Isn’t faith the entrance to the soul? The doorway to seeing something that the mind couldn’t picture before? The mind can never picture anything greater than the soul. The mind is ruled by only factual evidence. Boring facts that reduce the body’s actions into nothing more than a robot. The soul is ruled by this inevitable longing for something greater. Something bigger. Something better. Beautiful dreams that reveal a plan and a purpose. Robotic movements are dead. A reason is life. Life is a plan. A plan is living. Instinct does not rule the body or the mind. Instinct does not exist when there is a soul. The soul gives a conscience. A conscience creates black and white again. The mind still creates grey. Truth is still distorted, but the soul reveals the truth. The truth that is true and pure. If life is a plan and a plan is living, then life is living and living is doing something greater than the mind can comprehend. The distorted truth of the mind is a feeble attempt to deceive the soul. But the soul cannot be deceived. For it knows the only truth. It was created only knowing the truth. That truth is within each and every soul on the planet. The belief that what the soul knows is true, even when the mind tries to pervert that truth.

Prayer and God's Blessings

I think this verse speaks for itself. When we submit to God's will, He will give us greatness in our country. When we forsake God and His righteousness, we won't be so blessed. I think it's silly to call ourselves a Christian Nation because we don't act like it at all. Join me in praying for our nation and God's will in each individual's life as well as our leaders. We need to get back to the basics. That means getting down our knees by our beds every night praying. =)

2 Chronicles 7:12-22
Then the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him: “I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. For now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually. As for you, if you walk before Me as your father David walked, and do according to all that I have commanded you, and if you keep My statutes and My judgments, then I will establish the throne of your kingdom, as I covenanted with David your father, saying, ‘You shall not fail to have a man as ruler in Israel.’ “But if you turn away and forsake My statutes and My commandments which I have set before you, and go and serve other gods, and worship them, then I will uproot them from My land which I have given them; and this house which I have sanctified for My name I will cast out of My sight, and will make it a proverb and a byword among all peoples. “And as for this house, which is exalted, everyone who passes by it will be astonished and say, ‘Why has the LORD done thus to this land and this house?’ Then they will answer, ‘Because they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and embraced other gods, and worshiped them and served them; therefore He has brought all this calamity on them.’”

Is that not incredible?! No matter what bad things come our way if we just simply pray and humble ourselves before the Lord, He will HEAL OUR LAND. =) How encouraging is that? But first we gots to get HUMBLE. and we cannot keep forsaking God's laws.
God Bless.

Words from Mike Huckabee:

I am signed up to receive Huck*Pac emails.
This is what I got today:

I am very proud to have supported Senator McCain and the only regret is that more Americans didn't share my conviction that he would have made an outstanding President. I not only recognize, but respect that we are a nation in which the people choose and tonight they have chosen Senator Obama. He was not my choice, but he will be my President and I will pray for him to lead this great nation with God's help and grace. He will face serious challenges to lead our country and he will need all Americans to give him a chance. The campaign is over and now is the time for governing and leading. The Republican Party must not reassess where it is and where it is going. Our problem is not that our views aren't acceptable, it is that many in out party have abandoned the very principles that once drew Americans to trust us. Our party will be back with strength, but tonight we should all celebrate the historic nature of this election and put our country ahead of our party. As disappointed as I am that we have lost this election, I can't help but feel that many courageous leaders of the civil rights movement look down from heaven tonight with a smile that the day has come when a man is elected without regard to his color. I salute President-elect Obama for his discipline and tenacity that has given our country the opportunity to witness this significant event.

Politics is not an event but a process. We sometimes lose the events but it never gives us the right to stop being faithful to our principles that enlisted us in the process. We shall live to fight another day.
With deep gratitude,
Mike Huckabee

Uncertain Times?!

What is all this fuss about uncertain times? Why is everyone freaking out? You act like the world's going to hell. FYI: It was on it's way down there the day Adam and Eve sinned in the garden. So, what's new? Why are you acting like scared little mice? Uncertain times my foot!
These are the most certain times we have ever been in! We know exactly what is going to happen, just not necessarily 'when'. Barack Obama is the first black president of the United States of America.  I congratulate him. I then decide to stay jobless and mooch off of this new "share the wealth" system while serving in the new Black Market that will arise. Along with selling one-way tickets to Australia I will soon become a millionaire and move to Australia myself. I am pretty sure of that! haha! =p We know what Obama stands for. So why freak out and act like you have no idea what will happen? You know what will happen. It might not be pretty, but calm down! I have been informed (by my daddy) that everyone was freaking out when Clinton won the election. He told me that everyone thought it was the end of the world and it wasn't. ha. I was only like 3 so I have no clue. lol All I know is God is sovereign. He is in control. I am still going to buy a gun tho. So, if some liberal comes running into my home and tries to take away my rights, I can dare him to take one step closer. lol =p

Barack Obama 08

As much as everyone wants to freak out right now, that would be such a waste of our time. God is SO much bigger than some little President. I'm actually in the process of writing another one of those dumb papers for school. It is gonna be about how God used "devils from hell" as "messengers from heaven." God can use anyone. Anyhow. Anyway. Yes I was freaked out. Last night I couldn't sleep I was so worried. I was praying "In the Name of the Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. Devil LEAVE ME ALONE!" I finally fell asleep. Woke up this morning still a little nervous. Been worried all day. I kept praying, asking God to give me peace. "Help me trust You." My faith was wobbly all day today and last night. BUT God pulled through. Just like He always does. He caught me when I was falling. =) Falling into a pit of despair. But He saved me. God can use Obama. As hard as it is to believe. He really can. How do I know this? God is God. God is mighty to save. God is omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent. He can do anything He wants. Just be thanking God Hillary isn't our President. =) Obama is a blessing in disguise guys. However, I do not support him. Not one bit. His morals are not biblical. I'm not saying my morals are perfect, but I try my hardest to make sure they are based off of godly principles. Anwyho. Hope this is some encouragement to you guys. =) if anyone wants to debate I am ALL for it. I love talking about this stuff. 
love you!

"I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you cause you to walk in My statutes." Ezekiel 36:26, 27a

"I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live." Ezekiel 37: 14a

"Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." 2 Corinthians 5:17

"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." James 4:8

Isn't it comforting to know that Christ will make us new again? Doesn't it just blow your mind that the God of the universe will draw near to you? To you!!!!! =)  God must first empty us of our sin, or whatever is getting in our way of our relationship with Him. When He empties us, He cleans us out and then He can fill us with HIM! =) I pray that God empties me of my thoughts and desires and fills them with HIS thoughts and desires. For Him to do that tho, I have to first draw near to Him. He won't just do this or that for me without my asking Him, (although He could and He will do that sometimes!!). He is always there ready and willing to take us back, but He gives us that choice. I pray that you choose to accept Him. I pray that you choose His will over yours. 

When you do, He gives you a new heart. Ezekiel 36:26 says He will give you a heart of flesh. This means a heart that will feel. He will give you His heart. A heart that sees the things that God sees. Like Brandon Heath's song "Give Me You Eyes". It says: "Give me Your eyes for just one second. Give me Your eyes so I can see everything that I keep missing. Give me Your love for humanity. Give me Your arms for the brokenhearted the ones that are far beyond my reach. Give me Your heart for the ones forgotten. Give me Your eyes so I can see." He will replace that cold, hard heart and make it flesh -- warm and sensitive to the ones around you. 

You think you're living now? Wait till you're living with Jesus! Now you're living! =) Don't let the things of your past get in the way of your future. Something I cannot do is forgive and forget, but God can. He has the ability to completely forgive and completely forget. So when we keep thinking about our past mistakes, we're holding ourselves back from what God has planned for us. Through Christ, God has made all things new! It's like your sins never happened! All God sees is His daughter/son. And He loves you. He made you to be His.

First Blog.

Since I have 66 notes on Facebook, I decided to leave Facebook notes in the past and move on to a Blogger! =) I will most likely copy and paste many of the notes I have written in the past(which I will so indicate when I post them). 
This was written on September 26, 2008


Why do we always keep going back to the things that hurt us? Why do we allow ourselves to suffer so much? It's an addiction, like tobacco or alcohol or drugs. We might know it's bad for us, but we just can't stop doing it. It's such a part of our lives that we can't stop.

But if you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten.

We want to change, but we don't ever do anything about it. We want to live our lives differently, but we're so stuck in that rut that we can't get out.

I know with me, I don't ever know how to guard my heart. So 99.9% of the time I get hurt, and I don't seem to ever know why. silly me.

Others, maybe it's being in a relationship. An abusive one. Not necessarily physically abusive, but emotionally, or verbally. Maybe you dad was like that to your mom, so even tho as much as you wanted to never be around that again, all the guys you date are just like that. I'ts like you can't escape it. So you accept it.

Or maybe, you keep giving and giving of yourself to your significant other. Maybe you do everything to make him/her happy. They do nothing in return. Ever. They don't abuse you in any way... they just don't love you back. So instead of fighting, you accept it.

Maybe... a lot of things...
and maybe instead of you fighting the system, you just hunker down and take each blow. you sit there and let the same ol' same ol' happen to you. Day after day... You accept it.

You choose to accept it.
I refuse to accept it.

I refused to be bullied and beaten and battered by people who I love. I refuse to be the devil's little toy, that he can use and abuse and toss into the wind. I refuse to let anyone make less of me than what I really am. Cuz in Jesus, I am complete. I am whole. I am pure. So I will not accept the fate of this world. I will not sit down and let the same things happen to me over and over again. Christ through me, using me will allow me to be the one CHANGE that this world needs. To see a light. A hope. A future, in the will of God...

So that there won't be anymore suffering or pain. All eyes will be fixed on Him, who bore that pain FOR you.

In Him is peace. In Him alone, is salvation. Never again, will I allow myself to fall into that rut. Never again... I refuse to be the devil's footstool. I am the Lord's. Are you?
