Be contented. Be cheerful. Do not have a murmuring spirit. But give thanks for all the blessings in your life so that God can bless you more. Have a humble spirit, so that God can exalt you. Do not seek earthly things that will perish but seek the true treasures that will last and give fulfillment
and the Lord will answer you in your times of need. Seek the Lord on your knees and pray. Worship Him in truth and in spirit.

Sometimes things have to change...

Ok so yesterday I was at my friends house after church and my sister asked me if I could share my testimony later that night before our hockey game. Scared I said "maybe" un sure as to if I could do it or not. So I planned what to say in my head and talked to God for a wile about it. I new that there would only be one way I could share my testimony; and that was if God could give me the words to say.
So there I stand in the middle of the room, scared, knowing that all these people are going to hear of the many struggles I've been through, seeing every eye fixed on me, I shut my eyes and began to share the testimony of my faith and the storms I've had to overcome to get to the point of which I'm at now; acting as if God was my only audience and that no one else was in the room.
God got me through this testimony and although it was hard I knew that God could use my words so that maybe someone could be set free from the pain they feel inside.
I want you to know that its okay to hurt, its okay to cry, its okay to admit that your having a hard time. The world has raised us to think that the way we feel on the inside is something to fear, but its not... God gave us feelings so that one day we could help someone with the same struggles as us.... Their are so many hurting people living behind the seance, putting on masks acting like everything is peachy but when in actuality they are hurting so much because they are so afraid of what the world would say if they expressed there true feeling. In return so many live are lost in the fall of the night because no one ever told them that they understood the hurt they felt, no one had a chance to say you can make it! their is HOPE!!!
Its time to stand and fight!!! We need to open up and let the world know that our generation is going to make a difference. It's time to put our trust in God and know that He will protect us through every battle we face. I am a servant of God and I I'm going to war!!! I am no longer afraid of what the world thinks of me, and I'll stand strong knowing that God is my rock and He is by my side every step of the way!!
I hope that whoever took the time to read this post takes my words to heart and is by my side ready to make a difference in this messed up world. I hope that you never forget that all things are possible when your on God's team.
=) May God bless you in everything you do for Him and His glory. =)
