Jerimiah 29:11 is an amazing verse! It's so comforting to know that we are taken care of by God himself! He is in control not us! How comforting and relaxing!

Back in the Saddle.... Friends?

So it's been awhile since I've posted anything and I could kick myself for that. But now I am going to try and keep up on this. So what I have to talk about today is friends. God has been laying on my heart the importance of staying in the Word and knowing it, being "prepared in season and out of season"(2 Timothy 4:2). I have come to realize the big importance of "watering" myself in the word so to speak. This is what lead me to find some amazing truths that God wants us to know and believe. So truth for today is, God is faithful when we are not- 2 Timothy 2:13.
If a friend leaves you out to dry, just completely abandons you and you are left feeling alone in the world, what is it our tendency to do? Do unto him as he did unto us, right? Right. Well, it's just the opposite with Christ. You maybe thinking, "Well Christ isn't really my friend", or, "It's not the same". Well it is the same, and Christ is our friend, it says so in John 15:14, "You are my friends, if you do what I command." So remember that as I come to my next point.
When we, Christ's friends, leave him, forget him, and completely try to take him out of our lives. What is His tendency to do? Remain faithful. 2 Timothy 2:13a, "If we are faithless, he will remain faithful.." So why can't we do that with our friends when they are faithless to us? Christ tells us to be like him, so we are supposed to be faithful to those, even when they are faithless to us. In other words, we are to love even we are hated.
I am not saying this is easy. That there is magic words that make it possible for us to do this. I am not saying we can do this on our own. We Can't. We can't do anything without Christ, and he will help us if we ask him. If we are striving to be more like him, and realize that we can't do it on our own, he will help us. (Philp. 4:13).
So, to sum everything up. If a friend abandons us, we are still to remain faithful to them. This doesn't mean that you still have to try and make them be friends with you again, if you have already talked everything out and they still aren't responding, then leave it in God's hands. It means that you don't go bad mouthing them, making fun of them, or trying to hurt them in any shape or form. It means showing the love and forgiveness of Christ. Yes, you may feel they don't deserve it, but hey, neither did we. We, as believers, are sinners saved by grace. We are the most undeserving of them all, yet God loved us despite all of our flaws. How amazing is his love. To quote Kyle from Beastly," Can you imagine that love?". So lets go out today and love as Christ loves.

The Summer Sun.

The summer sun shines on your summer smile
The worries of the day do not show on your face
My heart beats fast as if it has run a mile
All the while your attitude shows the joy of His grace

Running and laughing with friends, on a bloody field
A connection slowly forming, sweet moments forming
This day has made much known, who knows what else it may wield
The past lurks, waiting to hurt, but I go on ignoring the warning

Down the sunken road we tramp
We have tower over green blankets deep and wide
My face alight like a brightly lit lamp
For to my joy you are happily by my side

The summer sun shines on your summer smile
Feelings are growing, secretly knowing
Hiding the truth from them, but just for awhile
His blessings showing, overflowing

"Do You Trust Me?"

So I haven't been on here forever, but with school starting and show choir practice I have been way busy. A lot things have been happening. Good and bad. Lately though it feels like more bad then good. Through it all though God has been right there with me. Last Wednesday I stayed home from church and went on a run. It started out as a regular run, but ended in so much more. I had my ipod in blaring, of course, to the song by Tenth Ave. North called Beloved. (Which I've mentioned in a past blog.) Before long I was crying, the lyrics spoke to me so much. Something God has been trying to teach me is to put my trust in Him and not in others or other things. I kept hearing Him ask me, "Do you trust me?" "Do you trust me?" I would run up a hill and feeling like I couldn't make it. He asked me, "Do you trust me to get you up this hill?" Not just a physical hill but different trials in my life. Once up the hill there would a just  a straight stretch of road and I was able to breathe again. He asked, "Do you trust me? Even though everything seems fine right now?" I, we, need to trust him at all times no matter what. I kept running, through another straight, boring stretch of road. It was getting dark and lighting bugs began lighting up. Little lights flickering here and there. Like little glimpses of happiness. Just like when God lets us see the good things that he wants us to want. Godly boyfriends\girlfriends, Godly friends, ect. These things might not last long, a day, a week , a year, even 27 years. We praise him for each minute, each second that He gives us of these precious moments. I ran down a hill, "Do you trust me?" Two deer past me, like friends that flit through our lives, and then either leave reluctantly or leave running because they don't like that we act different because of our own convictions. Or the friends that we have to leave because though we love them, they aren't good for us. At these times we don't look back on them sadly, wishing them back. We move on and look for what God wants us to have, not what we want. Finally, I looked back to see the North Star behind me. Always shining, always in the same spot, even if we don't always see it. Much like God, always ahead of us to guide us in the "night", and He is always watching over us; even if we don't feel like it.  He's always got our backs. So... "Do you trust Him?"

So wow! I've been doing this devotional, by Kelly Minter, on Ruth, and it's been amazing. I strongly recommend that you read it, and there's even a cd by Kelly Minter herself that goes with it. It's called Life, Lose, and Legacy, it has become one of my favorites. <3> Proverbs 19:21 (New International Version)

 21 Many are the plans in a man's heart, 
       but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.

So have you been seeing that rain boots are are coming back into style? At first I though, "Hmm not really my thing", but then I saw some of the designs and saw other people wearing them. They really are cute, and so fashionable! They also provide a nice dry place for your jeans and feet when it rains. :) So here's some info about where the style originated from. I'll do stuff like this periodically to keep you informed about the new fashions and their origins. So the rain boots started to come into style in 1817, but they were called the wellington and they were in mens fashions..... Haha to find out more go to Enjoy!
