If sinners entice you, turn your back on the.
For he who finds me finds life
Commit ur actions to the Lord
My child be wise, keep your heart on the right path and do not talk to drunkards
Don't gaze at wine for in the end it bites like a poisonous snake

The Godly will trip seven times but they will get up again

My grace is sufficient for you.

I don't understand why I try to live such a Godly life if in the end I get the same result as one who lives immersed in the world. I sin no matter how hard I try so y not just add a few more if He forgives me anyways? He tells us to follow his rules but forgives us when we don't? I just feel like I've worked so hard when it turns out I don't have to. GAAAHHHHH I just don't get it. It may be my pride speaking but it's not fair that people who party every night can get the same gift as me. So why not just join them? That way I could have the best of both worlds

up and down but mostly up

I woke up this morning with a smile on my face knowing that it was going to be an amazing day. It did not disappoint. Hit the gym; eventho Im already so jacked I have to stay in top shape, sledding with BJ, Camden and Lauren!!!, shopped w mommy, and hung with school people for the first time in months. Today was soooooo good :) It had an unfortunate ending but aint nothing finna bring me down. So my flight to florida got canceled for tomorrow so now we dont get out till Saturday :( but now I get to go snowboarding tomorrow!!

mmmm sugar

I find myself praying for the same thing all the time. each time I pray it sounds better and better. Does that mean I'm doing it right and that He will hear and answer? NO. Paul tells us that we only need to pray for something once because our God hears all and will answer all our prayers in his time. It also doesn't help if it sounds nice or not. God hears the cries of our hearts not what comes from our mouths. Sugar coated prayers r nice but are they from the heart? My prayer tonight is that God will mend the broken, give life to the weary and peace to those carrying their own burdens.

Hey dad I lost you

This mountain is tall and my strides are short
This is knew, I've never known the sort

Is there a top because the bottom is near
Where am I walking? You disappeared

My eyes are closed, am I forwards or back
Why can't I win and what do I lack

I dream of this prize to beautiful to speak
you seem so far and out of reach

You come in love but rarely do
Lets walk together, I'm here for you

Temptation to quite is creeping in
Why can't I give up? No matter what you win

blogging mood

It's humbling to think that my very best isn't good enough. I was listening to Hillsong last night and I was convicted. The song said "And at your cross I lay my burdens and at your feet where your love covers all I've done and now I walk with you Lord" I feel like I've let other things push God out of my thoughts. Then another song talked about all creation returning to him. Then I read in Crazy Love today, that said we should be obsessed with Him thinking about Him all the time. So I took a walk in the gorgeous snowfall. It was awesome to forget about my worries and walk with Him. God come and fill this heart and my my body be a temple for you.

Thursday, December 23, 2010

Sometimes I wonder and sometimes I know...I think

I really need to lay my burdens down at His cross and just walk with him.

I miss who I am.

The stillness with a splash of Hillsong is the best medicine.

So I keep praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May He give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do. Then the name of the Lord our God will be honored because of the way you live. -2 Thess 1:11-12

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

You know, I've missed out of a huge part of high school going to TC and living in my house. I feel like I haven't learned the life lessons I need for college. I'm just really up tight and there is no doubt I get that from my mom.

Matthew 22

So I'm reading threw Matthew with a couple of guys and we r supposed to be on chapter 22. How hard is one chapter a day? Apparently too hard because I'm only on 17 haha I guess I have some reading to do :) Oh God how much does it take for us to be loved, for us to be saved. oh we all are birds stuck inside our cage, covered up with grace and we hide our sins behind our face.

Thursday, December 16, 2010


Usually the week before Christmas break goes super slow for me but this time I think it's safe to say that it has been the best week of school all year. Nothing like playing finger Hockey with Chawncy everyday and winning the badminton championship in gym class hahaha life is good. Just about everything is going my way. oh and RK is tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday, December 11, 2010

Just like the movies

After just about every movie my dad says "Good movie, the good guy wins and the guy gets the girl" I wish my life was like a movie. That'd be fab

Thursday, December 9, 2010


I hate texting
Sugar is the best thing in the world
I don't go anywhere or do anything without music playing
I am constantly thinking about snowboarding
idky the middle school chose John 10:10
Im so old! 19 in feb
Christmas is gunna be really different without my brothers home
School is my absolute least favorite place on earth
I really wish i could sleep in but i naturally wake up before 830
I love when I'm home alone
I have another blog nobody knows about
I feel like I havent been fully happy for a really long time
I'm really thinking of becoming a pastor or a yg leader
I'm really really bad at reading and typing
I rarely stress out so i dont understand people that wont shut up about their problems
I dont get much hw so i have a lot of time to think which can be a good or bad thing

Saturday, December 4, 2010


So yeah I feel convicted. I felt like God was telling me to love. So I read 1 Corinthians 13. The thing that stuck out to me was that Love keeps no records of wrongs. Something that's hard for me is to forgive. And on a lighter note, I say I hate a lot of things and I'm sure most if not all of you can list off at least 5 things I don't like. God is calling me to love. If I have the whole world at my finger tips but do not love, I'm nothing. I like when God tells me I'm wrong for some reason.

Friday, December 3, 2010

I totally understand why some people don't believe in a loving God but this God I serve has made himself so real in my life I can't help but love him back. Sometimes I hear Him threw music or the Bible or my friends or...ect. The point is that God is always there if you look for Him.

Saturday, November 27, 2010

idk a good title

I'm sure you all know that I'm not a huge fan of old people. Chances are that I'm going to become one of those said old people. This is not good. But I bring this up for another reason. I watched "the bucket list" and some dude said, I never wanted to grow up and ask "what if". So I started wondering what I could do with my life today to live a more full life that I'll be happy with when I look back on it. I really didn't come up with anything haha but it did make me remember that a full life is a life found in Jesus. If I have not LOVE, I am nothing.

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

yeah idk

I've got a weird feeling but I don't know what it means. Is something not right? Also, today really stunk so far because of various reasons. Maye I'll do some reading to change things around because I feel funny right now.

Sunday, November 21, 2010

Here's ur second chance to listen to this guy if i didnt before. I felt like writing something but couldnt think of anything good so yeah.

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

wow overload

I just looked threw all my pictures on facebook. Recommendation: don't do that while playing a really soothing Christiany song. But wow, I'm overwhelmed. Everything from all the people that have come and gone to all the places I've been. I can see God in every one of those pictures. I am so proud of what God has done in and threw me that the tears are inevitable. GOD YOU ARE SO GOOOOOD!!!!!!! Your hands have shaped me into who I am now! I am a child of God! And you know he says to me? "I was always there and always will be. You are mine and I love you."

Have you ever prayed for ur future spouse?

God I know everyone had baggage but please, please God, keep her pure.

Saturday, November 13, 2010

I'm really proud of myself. High School soccer was so much fun and I've been blessed with an awesome brotherhood the past 4 years. One question I think we all ask ourselves is "Will I be remembered?" For once I feel like people will :) Take a gander at the gray right side of the screen and sheck out some TC stats

Friday, November 5, 2010


So a lot of family and family friends are coming into town because we are hosting some party for my bro Kyle and his new wife. My mom is of course is in clean up mode and dragged me into it. I'm not aloud to leave the house unless it's to run an errand for her. I had a day off of school today and I spent it locked in my house doing chores. So yeah, today sucked.

Thursday, November 4, 2010

Just some things I feel like God is putting on my heart

Come because my arms are open

Be proud of who I am and don't keep it to yourself

If you follow me what could go wrong?

Just because you don't need them doesn't mean they don't need you

Relient K

I find that they tend to fix any bad mood you may find yourself in :)

Sunday, October 31, 2010

If I can't you can't either. Sounds fair to me.

It's a little different situation for me but ok I won't

:) I love you

Hhaa you too

Definition: A concept even a little girl understands.

Paraphrased: Think for once because it's about time you grow up.

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

My buddy is homeless

Something has been on my mind a lot lately and I don't really know why. Maybe God is pushing me closer. Maybe God is pushing me away. I never really know.

Sunday, October 24, 2010

Still dont get it

So I was and still am wondering why God wanted me on the Fall Sabath because I'd rather still be playing soccer. However, there is no doubting that God was there. SOOOO cool. Props to Denny for actually being supper cool too :)

Monday, October 18, 2010


So I have a big predicament. I have been waiting to go the the Fall Sabbath for the longest time! It may be my favorite trip. Well I was scheduled to take the ACT that Saturday so I was just gunna head up late. Well, I have a soccer game tmrw and if we win hen I'll have another one on Saturday at 4!!! so then Fall Sab would be out the window. I wanna win the game and continue to state but I want to go the Sabbath so freaking bad! Huh I hate this.

Monday, October 11, 2010

mmm soccer

What can I say, I love to win. But as good as it was to finish our regular season with 3 wins, God did not go un-noticed. Also, I've gone threw 2 pairs of cleats in less than 2 months. Soccer 2000 sucks but at least they replace them.

Saturday, October 9, 2010

I'm calling your bluff

It's amazing that God can prove himself over and over again and we can miss everything he is telling us. This past week I really stuggled with prayer. I have had the same prayer for the past 4 years and have not seen God show any interest in listening. I refused to believe that he listened and much less cared. I asked him "God if you hear my prayers show me that you are still there". He showed me once, I didn't listen. He showed me twice, I didn't listen. He showed me 3 times, I listened. I now see that God really does hear me. I just think 4 years is too long to have to wait. But God is good and trust that he is there.

Saturday, October 2, 2010


I hate tonight. I feel sick to my stomach and I can't bear to know the truth but refuse to listen to more lies. The dark closes in but I trust that dawn will come again. God break me down so that I can arise once more.

Thursday, September 23, 2010

2 things

1. I got my 12th goal which means that I'm the leading scorer in Timothy Christian history. I'm out of my mind happy about this but now I can't let it get to my head which could be very easy.

2. I hate girls because they make zero sense! I am not the only one that notices these things. They really can't make up their minds about anything I feel. Can I girl please explain what you are thinking? Or do you not even know what you're thinking?

Tuesday, September 21, 2010


A woman called into klove one day and told a story about how she lost her husband and 2sons in the period of 1 year. She was asking God to help her get threw her hard time when he answered her. "Sara, I already got you threw. Now praise me because my grace is sufficient enough." I thought it was a good reminder that when we think we are having a bad day, God is still in control and we need to praise him for who he is.

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

Lies to cover themselves

I don't care what you do, I just want to know who you are. None of your stories ever match up.

Thursday, September 2, 2010


I read a whole chapter about promises last night during my devos. It was good because it got me thinking. I have friends in the past and in the present that have made a promise and messed it up somehow. It got me frustrated but then I realized I'm a member of the same club. I've made promises to both God and to my friends. I've kept many of them but have failed on a couple accounts. We should never promise anything that we can't do because even though it may mean nothing to us at the time, it could mean the world to who we are promising it too. Promise to keep your promises. Oh, and I'm going to Texas : )

4 and 0

So TC's soccer team is off to a good start destroying anyone and everyone that takes the field. Its awesome because we have worked so hard to get here and no one is going to stop us. But as for me, I'm cursed with injuries and haven't scored as much as I would have like thus far. I'm going for the TC record and it's only 10 goals away. I know I'll get it but I wanted like 6 so far and I only have 2. I just need to remember that soccer is not who I am, it's just what I do.

Saturday, August 21, 2010

My Boyz

So on our soccer team we have 2 players that a lot of people pick on. I actually like them but for some reason they just take all the crap people spit at them. If someone told me to do 10 push-ups I'd respond by laughing and making sure they regret saying it. The hard part isn't sticking up for these guys that's easy. The hard part is making sure they don't get picked on behind their backs too. High schoolers are stupid.

Monday, August 9, 2010

If only i could find the words to say to let u know how much u touched my life

So this summer has been awesome. I got a lot done but still had tons of time to be a regular teen. This coming year should be interesting tho. Freshman year was always fun because it was new. Sophomore year was cool because that was a big year of growth for me and my Savior. Junior year was always interesting because I finally grew up and learned how to be part of this world as a Christian. How to handle good and bad news and stuff. I really grew up last year. I've always known what my struggles were going to be before the year started. This year is different. I have no clue as to what God is going to throw my way. I always know exactly where I'm headed so I've never been in this position before. I don't like not knowing what doors are open and which are closed. I just feel like I've learned all that high school has to offer me. I usually have a lot of drive to aim toward tasks ahead of me but I'm running low because I feel like there is nothing left to accomplish.

So in short, I figure God has a big plan for me this year, I just can't see it and that bothers me.

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

I miss you

We have grown so far apart but she is still the one person I would litarally do anything for.

Wednesday, July 14, 2010


So I'm kinda exited for the DR!I love being with my church biddies cus I hardly ever get to see them. But I'm deathly terrified by Brazilian Wondering Spiders, commonly known as Banana Spiders. They are huge, poisons and honestly I plane hate spiders. But on the bright side, oh gosh, there is no bright side. I'm dead.

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

Psalm 23

God renews our strength. He is never far away. He protects and comforts. His goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life. WOW. This is the God we serve. All I can say is OUR GOD IS GOOD

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Im feeling nautical

The Lord is my Anchor for He holds me tight. The Lord is my Sail for He moves me. The Lord is my Compass for He guides me. He is my Captain.

Monday, June 28, 2010

Don't dish it if you can't take it, and God knows you can't take it.

Thursday, June 24, 2010


so whats on my mind? Well,...

trying to keep my friends
being a good example while still having fun
TC soccer
my grandpa just died
and i cant get a little comment a person made out of my head

But I don't handle problems like most people do. Things don't really bother me. I guess I've found that I have gotten less emotional while getting older. Which, may I add, is quite different than maturity. idk, i have more but i cant think of it at the moment.

Saturday, June 12, 2010

All for a reason

Why do I worry? Why should I ever worry when I know that I'm in the palm of my makers hands? Why is it that I always feel hurt or angry when something doesn't go my way? Once again, I'm in my makers hands! Everything that happens to me is because of Jesus! So this is a reminder, don't get angry about stupid little things that this world throws at you. Our maker is molding and shaping you into a masterpiece. All we can do is stay on the ride and go where ever he takes us. Don't be afraid when our Father is holding you in his arms. TRUST that he will lead you and keep you safe. So stop your sulking because everything is for a reason. Be happy for once dang it!

My love note to: Summer

Oh summer how much do I love thee--that's all I got.

So...Roca is coming up and I'm supper pumped :) idk if Mike is gunna make it and it's too bad that Mel can't go but that's alright. I love the freshmen coming in and that's all imma need.
So yeah summer is good already and it's only half a week in for me. Last summer sucked bc I only had 3 people that I hung with. Thanks mike, cam and Nealio :) but this summer is gunna be different. I have like 3 whole different groups this time around. The Lord had blessed me with extremely loving people all around.

Saturday, June 5, 2010

Thoughts in my head

I wonder what it would be like if we switched shoes for a day. My guess is that it'd make me thankful. Even tho no one goes to lunch with me : ( haha.
I feel like Chicago is calling. How about it Mike?
Seems like I'm looking for a reason, roaming threw the night to find my place in the world.
I never was called to be normal...

A random interest

So this is random but, have you ever wondered why house addresses make absolutely no sense? I mean, my house is 700 and my next door neighbors are like 633 or something, and, there's like 20 houses tops on my street! haha makes no sense but it kinda makes me smile

oh and also, Ashley and I broke up and surprisingly I'm 99% ok! :) why you ask? well...
"seek his will in all you do and he will show you which path to take." It's only one chapter in my story, but a special one nevertheless.

Our God- Chris Tomlin

Sample, buy, listen, live. Our God is a pretty good guy. I've been really confused about a lot of things lately and I felt like He hasn't been listening when I cry out to him. I still kinda feel like that really. But if there is one thing that I know it's that my God is with me. Maybe I just need to listen more...because it seems like the only person I can trust is Him.

Monday, May 31, 2010

I never ment to Judge but only to Guide

I guess my life really isn't perfect!!!!! This makes me happy. I have problems just like everyone else :) ha it's funny, alcohol and drugs have destroyed my life and I haven't touched either of them. And you know what, I'm so deeply thankful for everyone who has shaped me into who I am today. -This is the life My God has blessed me with. And it truly is a blessing.

Proverbs 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord your God with all your heart, and do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

Oh Lake Geniva

I feel like I can fill up the page but no words come out

Thursday, May 20, 2010

Father God fall down on me. May your love surround me everywhere I go. Place that fire in my heart that will never be extinguished. Lord polish me into a mirror that reflects your compassion. May my words be your words, my thoughts your thoughts. May I find refuge under your wings and joy in your name. Lord remind me day after day to put down my worries and pick up your cross. GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST

Tuesday, May 18, 2010


totally hot-kinda repulsive
facial hair-none
smells good-smells bad
The list goes on but the commandment stays the same. Choose LOVE. No matter who it is, choose love. You never know what will happen.

Saturday, May 8, 2010


Putting my life and the way I live it in my Savior's hands
My life is not my own, I am the Lord's
I am His, He is mine
The Lord really does provide
My home is where my heart is, so off to Chicago.

Monday, April 19, 2010

And at ur cross I lay my burdens. At ur feet where ur love covers what I've done. Now I walk with you Lord.

Mat 7: 1-5

Does this mean that we cannot point out things that our brothers and sister can get better at?!
NO! We need to address each others problems in hopes that we repent and return to the Lord who loves us. We need to call each other out! That's why we are called the Church. Just understand that if your the one doing the calling out that you are a sinner too. I'm sure we all know what it feels like to be called out. It hurts. But don't turn on them. They are helping. Take it and grow. And when you see something in them, let them know in humility making sure your motives are pure. Never go to someone out of anger. Do it out of compassion so that we can all be saved. So that we can all be in true fellowship. DO IT IN LOVE (I love ethics class :) )

1 Corinthians 13

LOVE. It's a nice thing. It's not proud or boastful or rude. Instead it keeps no record of wrongs and is patient and is kind. Love never fails. If I have the faith to move mountains but have no love, I'm worthless. Thank You Father

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

So I watched that Chisel Skit by the Skit Guys again and it is by far one of my favs. What they say is so true. God doesn't make junk. So many times I have wrote in my journal that I am recommitting my life to God. Then, the next day I forget about it. Maybe it would be easier if someone tried to do it with me. Lets do this together guys. What does God need to chisel away to make you into the masterpiece you have underneath your fake exterior?

Friday, April 9, 2010

My god my god y have u forsaken me?

Our god is
a billboard

Our God is

Our God will never forsake you! Our god was never there in the beginning or and won't be there in the End. Our God is everlasting. Our god is never lasting. Our gods are pathetic but our God majestic.

Tuesday, April 6, 2010


Hasa! I've got it!!! One question I hear from a lot of Christians is this

"How Do I know it's God speaking and not just in my head?"

The answer? THE CHURCH

It's that simple. I'm not talking the building but our brothers and sisters in Christ. I was sitting in Ethics class today and well, my teacher is brilliant. The way we are supposed to figure out if it really is God is to check with others. Go to people and have them pray about it. If they get the same vibe you do and it will glorify God, go for it! But if they truly pray on it and don't see it, get a second opinion. What we see isn't always whats best. Ask your self this question...

Is this good for God?

Now I'm sure I kinda sucked up this whole thing but oh well. Hopefully you get my point!

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

I think I'm going to memorize

Here is the start of it/what I know so far. Can u guess what Psalm it is?

What joy for those
whose disobedience is forgiven,
whose sin is put out of sight.
Yes, what joy for those
whose record the Lord has cleared of guilt,
whose lives are lived in complete honesty.

Saturday, March 27, 2010

I hope you all had a good friday night like I did!

I'm kinda bummed out because one of may favorite people is leaving for the week so I won't see them. Oh well, I guess it makes the reunion that much sweeter. But no worries because it's finna be bro time with Tom and RC!!!!!!

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

He loves us, oh how he loves us

I love you guys. So much. Just being able to say that is a huge answer to prayer.


What will it be this time? A repeat of that? That's what it's looking like but Lord I don't want the past. Loneliness kills but loneliness heals. Which will it be? I already know how it feels. Once again or something new? Do miracles actually happen? This summer will be the playing field. Will we grow or will we flatten? I pray this doesn't happen...again. Being lonely sucks but it's nothing new. Our options are growth or separation. I leave it up to my Artist.

Monday, March 22, 2010


Why, O God, is my heart like stone?
Break it down and make me your own
What's happening? this isn't me
Chisel me into who I need to be
Soften my heart so that I can love
So compassion's what I fall on when push comes to shove
Fill my prayers with passion and my words with care
Everyone falls, it's only fair
Fill my pulse with strength and my veins with life
My seed is hatred and my crop is strife

Let's Recap

Florida was great except that I was sick the whole time. No cute girls either! haha We stayed at the Ritz and it was nice but awkward, my family just doesn't belong there. $21 Pina Coladas isn't our idea of a fun time. I enjoyed catching up with every one's blogs buy the way :) I guess I don't really have much to say except...Keep moving forward but don't forget to look back every so often. That's how we learn and see how God has worked. My emotions have been turned off a while ago and I lost the switch. I don't care even when I want to or know I should. What does it matter anyways? Nothing is going to change.

You need to listen to this song! I have no words to describe it. It's amazing

Anything You can do I can do Better

When I am blinded my anger or disappointment there are a few people the can comfort me. But nun of them can do it like Jesus can.

Who doesn't love gifts?

Take a Bible and place it on your lap.
Do you ever praise God?-take 100 pages
Do you ever get scared?-take 25 more
Do you ever get hurt or go through hard times?-add 100
Are you ever tempted?-25
Are you a sinner?-add 1900 more pages
It's written for you. this is proof. This book describes you, tells you what you need and exactly how to get it. It is the gift that humanity will never be good enough to deserve. But it's for you to receive.

Saturday, February 20, 2010


So I was in Chicago on Friday just hanging out with mike. We had some cool experiences and met some friendly faces. We met this one guys who's name was Isaiah. He was giving out Bible pamphlets of some sort. The Beth Moore Bible study that my mom and Megan are doing is going threw Isaiah as well. I think I'll read Isaiah. I read the summary last night. He was a prophet that no one really liked but he did his job because he knew that is what God had planned for him.

A List

1: I hate having to humble myself and doing what I need to do. So often I begin to think I'm better than others.-I surprisingly don't even feel any better about it.

2: I'm hurt. My hopes were lifted high just to get torn down...again.

3: I went on a run to run off all my anger. At the end I screamed "God!" at the top of my lungs. I then noticed Olivia Trilla walking her Dog. Can you say awkward?!

4: Valentines Day sucks.

5: This weekend was among the worst.

6: I'm forgiven and so are you...if you ask and Truly mean it.

Bits of what God is telling me

Oh God, you open doors and you close others. Guide my steps and lead me in the path of life!

Take your Faith as your Protection and my Word as your Sword!--Go into the world but do not become part of it. (not a verse)
I love this. Ephesians talks about to armor of God. Paul says our Faith is our shield meaning that when the world pushes us to our knees, out faith is what keeps us from falling. The Bible is our sword. When we are filled with Jesus we are called to memorize Scripture, go into the world and use what we learned to change it. The Bible is our sword to defeat the evil around us and our Faith is what keeps us from falling. A good combo.

Come and Follow Me

Do you love me? Do you want to be part of my kingdom and have a personal relationship with me?
Then follow the path I have set before you.
Honor your father and mother.
Encourage everyone you meet.
Converse with me.
Care for those that are hurting.
Don't lie or be a hypocrite.

Put down your double lives and pick up my cross. My burden is easy and my yoke is light.

Do you love me? Feed my sheep.

So I went to a dance and it was a grand old time. But something stuck out to me. Betsy was in awe of all the people she met. It was a good reminder of the beautiful community I have at Timothy. We both heard exactly 1 bad word, the dancing was PG rated for the most part, and all the people there are so nice and inviting! I am blessed to be part of a community with all of them. We are the body of Christ in motion. So thanks TC!

Psalm 96: 9-11

Is he deaf- the one who made your ears?
Is he blind-the one who formed your eyes?
He punishes the nations-won't he punish you?
He knows everything- doesn't he also know what you are doing?
The Lord knows the people's thoughts; he knows they are worthless!

Dang! I was surprised to find that in the Bible. Very true nevertheless.

I have been spending more time listening to what God has to say to me. Sometimes he says things and sometimes he doesn't. But one change this has lead to is a deeper knowledge of myself. I've learned a lot about myself by listening to the one who made me. I've learned that 1. I have high standards. That's not a bad thing, in fact, I'd say that's a good thing. It pushes me to be may best at everything I, athletics, ext. I also have high standards for my friends and more. 2. I have a really strong faith. However, it means nothing if I cannot use it to glorify my Lord. Faith without works is dead.

Why do you still love us?

We are only human. Yeah we're your creation and all but still. We make bad decisions, sin non-stop, and tear each other down. Maybe the question is HOW do you still love us? I'm not sure but I'm thankful that you do.

When is the last time you...

told someone that you were truly thankful for them (with no strings attached)? Sometimes the simplest heartfelt comment can go a long way.
