University next year, hopefully, and to be honest, It looks scary, but I know God will look after me!
I think as soon as I go, I’ll buy a new bible, as mine is a bit full and in need of some repair! :S A bible that is falling apart tends to belong to someone that isn’t, but I am sure that may change with the stresses of uni life that I have yet to live through!
I just saw a post that said “Humans are born alone, live alone and die alone”
I saw this and instantly thought, what a load of rubbish!
Actually, this is it..
I was born into a world of many different people, some I don’t get a long with and some I do. I am blessed to have a wonderful family around me, and best of all, I have God with me too!!
I do not live alone. I live with my family, I know it may have meant in a metaphorical sense, but to be honest, I don’t live alone in that way either. I live with Jesus in my heart - With him manifesting in my heart and in my life, I can never live alone, I am surrounded by loving friends and family, and the church is my second family… I do not live alone, in fact I am the opposite, I live in partnership with everyone else in this world, so I can tell them the amazing news of God, his love and his sacrifice! And..
I may physically die alone, but it won’t be fully alone, because we are told to die to ourselves daily (and, you know, I’ve already died before anyway) but I am not going to die alone, for I have Jesus in my life, which basically means that when I do, inevitably die, I will be able to live forever with God in heaven. To live is Christ, to die is gain. When I do die, I won’t be scared because actually, it means I have done all God had planned for me to do for him, before I GET TO MEET HIM! FACE TO FACE!!!
In conclusion, we are not born alone, we do not live alone and we do not die alone - because we can never be alone when we have God.
My curfew was lightning bugs. My parents didn't call my cell, they yelled my name. I played outside with friends, not online. If I didn't eat what mom cooked, then I didn't eat. Sanitizer didn't exist, but you could get your mouth washed out with soap. I road a bike without a helmet. Getting dirty was ok, and neighbors cared as much as your parents did. Re-blog if you drank from a garden hose and survived.
At the moment I am home alone and, when I am home alone, I just do what any normal person would do…
I procrastinate by trying to watch t.v. without the inflicting urge to get up every 5 minutes to get something to eat, tidy, organise, be bored and listen to music while sifting through files and posts on the internet.
Well, I am a little odd, and I don’t know if it’s just me who does this, but, I experiment with make up just to see what things look like, and to see if I can even get my face to look as orange as some of the girls from my college… I can never seem to succeed…
I never understood why you would want to wear so much make up! I am not saying wearing that much make up makes you ugly, no one is ugly. I am imply saying that it is not necessary at all! Not one bit.
So yes, as I was messing around with the makeup, I did my face up, with orange eye liner and blue eye shadow with orange lips… I took a look in the mirror and thought “Hey, you don’t look too bad with make up on, although you do look slightly silly…” As I began to take the makeup off again, I looked in the mirror and realised something…
I am beautiful…
Not in a boastful way, or in a vain way. but I noticed that with no make up, my skin is more radient and youthful than it could ever look with make up on. I have many flaws, and no, I am not suggesting I am perfect.
But just that satisfaction in knowing that I am who I am because that is how I was made. God made me to be this way. Not to conform to the words view of beauty because that makes me of this world. I don’t want to be noticed for my beauty or the way I look, I want to be known for my modesty, the way I conduct myself and for who I really am as a person - not as a label. I am God’s daughter, not a product of society.
I am not, in away saying that make up is bad, I wear it on occasion, but please never feel like you HAVE to wear it. If you’re more comfortable wearing it, that’s okay, but just remember, God loves what is inside so much more than what any one of this world may feel for the outside
Was incredible, I was on the worship band this morning. I didn’t really want to be on it this week, not just because I was ill, but also because I just thought this week I would rather be in the congregation, and be absolutely free to worship with no restrictions…
But the thing is,
From the front, not only are you leading everyone in the room in worship, but you can also see the individual ways that God is touching different people through out the morning…
It’s so amazing
This morning you can definitely tell that the holy spirit was moving, there was testimoney after testimony given over the entire morning, and people where in tears and some were laughing.
There ain’t no party like a Holy Ghost party, cause a Holy Ghost party don’t stop.
There is nothing like a Sunday spent with my family in Christ, worshipping our God!
Hello, My name is Leah Alexandra Sheffield and I am 17 years old. I live in England and I love Jesus. I want to tell you a little story…
This is not for sympathy, or any form of attention, this is to help you…
When I was a couple of months old. I died. I know that seems odd to many, if not most of you, but its true. (reading this you probably think it sounds like one of those chain letter/posts but it’s not)
I suffered from a medical condition which was a combination of Meningococcal and Meningitis which caused me to become incredibly ill, and grow so violently through my body that at one point I die for a short period of time before the doctors managed to resuscitate me and bring me back round.
I was never really too grateful for my life until I was told about what happened all those years ago. I realised that there was a greater meaning to what was happening, and that I am alive now for a reason. We are ALL alive for that same reason.
It has taken me a lot of time to try a figure out why I am still alive, why I wasn’t left dead, and why I was chosen to be saved from the grips of death.
I realised that I must have been brought back for a reason, but what reason was that? What higher power or force is controlling my life?
That’s when I met Jesus.
In the bible it says ‘ For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’
I remember reading this for the first time and realising, that was it.
God loves me so much and has such a great plan set out for my life that he would have to pull me back to life again in order to fulfill it!
I have a long way to go, but the journey started when I realised I am alive for a reason, and I am to use this life that God has given me so graciously, to do what I need to do for his kingdom.
SO, I urge you all… Push into building your relationship with God, so that you may work with the plans he has for you, and don’t take it upon yourself to do what you want to do. God has made you and created you for so much more than you could ever imagine,
It may not be that obvious to you now, about where your future is headed, but he knows you, and he won’t lead you astray.
Don’t try and run from things he has for you, because he would not present you with such a challenge unless he knew you were ready.
No matter where you go in life, it’s all part of God’s plan for you - he wants you to be safe and living with his love in your heart. Hey! If he can bring little ol’ me back to do some of his work, he can turn it all around for you - Just trust in him and he will lead the way..
Are trying to find My dad’s dad… He never knew him, not even his name, date or place of birth, but one of his half sisters is believed to know where he is, what his name is and such, so we have been searching all evening on websites, building family trees to try and find him.
I want to find him - This could be a long struggle.
Yes! they are back, and YES!!!! they are CLEARR!!!
Nothing, Nadah, Zippoo, Nout, Nil, Nah, Nope!
Everything is fine with my blood! which is great, it still doesn’t rule out the idea of brain scans though, so I may still have to have them as there is still something wrong, just not necessarily with my blood etc.
Finding myself curled up on the bathroom floor in pain has just shown me something I never realised.
I love being me, because God made me to be like this.
I may not be healthy in a physical sense, or in a biological sense right now, but God is working in me to get better. He will make me better. I trust he can help me and heal me of what ever is going on…
I get my results back from my blood tests on Wednesday, and I should be getting referral to the neurobiologist soon as well, but I know that no matter what happens, God has his hand over my life, and I would much rather go through this learning a lot of his love, and his just nature as well as his healing power and grace, than be someone else.
There is nothing like the feeling of God's path coming together before your very eyes in one day.
My open day at Coventry University was possible the best day I have had in a while!
My mother and I spent from 8am this morning-6:15pm together going to, from and around the university and checking out my course and accommodation, and I just feel like it is the place God wants me to be. I am so happy!!
That I am listening to Disney music right now, and my absolute favourite ever, as it has always been, has to be ‘I’ll make a man out of you’ from Mulan, closely followed by Gaston’s song from beauty and the beast.
