Common Misconceptions

i was talking to my sister yesterday about how we have no kind of youth worship groups or cell thingys or whatever in our town. I told her how annoying it was when i just wanted to go to a place where i was invited to worship God, how i wanted to sing and praise Him. But she said that was one of the most common misconceptions that christians today have. She said that every time we talk about Jesus to our friends, every time we hum along to christian bands, everytime we pray and thank God, we are worshipping Him. It doesn't matter if ur in a church or on the loo, u can praise God wherever you are and in so many different ways.
I then went on to blabber about how i felt that going to these places of worship was when i met with God, but she reminded me of common misconception #2. We can meet with God anywhere and at any time. This was proved to me when i was sitting on the bus this morning, listening to mercyme, a brill xtian band n i just started crying. I couldn't stop, it was like somebody had turned two taps on and they just wouldnn't turn off again. The Holy Spirit was there with me, on the school bus of all places. It was blink.
have a good weekend my fluffy walrusses!!!

Trust.

It's amazing how many people put their trust in themselves and other people instead of God. People think they can sort out their own problems, that they don't need anybody elses help, they can battle on through on their own. I'm a culprit, i do that all the time!
I sometimes think "why would God wanna have all of my stupid problems and anxieties" and then i was thinkin about my physics prep and it hit me...my teacher had given me a challenging prep and i was stuck, the thing he wanted me to do then, was to go and ask him for help. Afterall, he set the prep and he understands it. In the same way, everytime we get stuck in life, and think we can deal with it ourselves, instead, we should turn to God, our teacher. I'm not saying it's easy for me to give it up to the Lord, its really hard and everday i have to remind myself to give Him my problems, afterall, He has set me challenges, He knows excactly what im going through and He wants me to ask for help.
We (I) should hand EVERYTHING over to the Lord and TRUST that He will sort it out. We (I) should give it up, stop the struggle by ourselves, the strain, the stress and pass it to our creater, our lover and our teacher. He's desperate to help, so why refuse Him?

how not to evangalise??!!

my best bud just sent me a text saying " threats won't make me a christian, the best example you give of christianity is kindness, not blackmail" oh how true. It will NEVER be possible to force someone towards jesus' love. But it is soo painful to see a really close friend carry on pushing jesus away, further and further. It is hard not to say things forcefully when people just will not listen!!!
Any prayer would be really appreciated, that i would say God's words, not my own.

where i belong...

I have a brilliant familly, which i thank God for everyday, but there was a time when i was really unhappy. I was being really bullied at school and i had like, absoloutely no friends. I would sit in the library and read magasines most breaks, or go n sit on the playing feilds, just to get away from the mean guys. i would come home to an ace familly and things would lighten up (don't get me wrong, my familly were all amazing throughout my tough times), but the true highlight of my day, the thing that kept me going through thick and thin....was my God time. Sitting in my room and talking to Jesus, just belonging in Him. He freed my from my pain and my tears, from my hurt. Each day he would reknew me, and give me strength to carry on, and beleive me, walking away from the saftey of my home and family every morning towards people who made my life hell was the hardest thing. Sometimes i just wanted to give up, but He kept me going, every time i felt alone and hurt at school he would hold me tight and envelope me in his love.
My words cannot express how amazing Jesus was (and still is) in my times of hardship. He's my rock and i'm SO glad that iv got him in my life.
My message to anyone that finds it hard to carry on, if you can't find reasons to get up in the morning, when your heart crys a sea of sadness, turn to Jesus, your King, turn to God your Father, and give EVERYTHING up. Let go of EVERYTHING that causes you pain, He will take your burdens, your fears, your tears and greif, and will give you strength you never knew you had, confidence you never knew existed.
Jesus was killed not only to take away our sin, but that so whoever beleives in Him will be free from pain and sadness.

"Come to me, all you who are
weary and burdened, and i will give
you rest. Take my yoke upon you
and learn from me, for I am gentle
and humble in heart, and you will find
rest for your souls. For my yoke is
easy and my burden is light."
Mathew 12v28-30
Open your heart to Jesus, falll back into His arms, and be embraced by His love. It's the only way..
God bless and lots of love

Adding to that........

"For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will"
Ephesians 1v4-5
hope this helps as well xx

Ouch!!

ok, so i was thinking today...God made the whole earth and every single thing on it. He chose to create us, His people, out of His love. So imagin how much his heartbreaks everytime we turn our backs on Him. Imagin how much he hurts for us when we trust ourselves instead of Him. ok so like 2 billion people (or something like that) on His earth are christians, imagin how much he pines for the other 4 BILLION to know His love. He gave His one and only son so that people could know Him through Jesus, and be saved through Him. God did this so that He could rescue His own children, and yet their are people who only know the word jesus as a swear word, they don't know love or forgiveness, and they certainly don't know God.
It's the least we could do show the people around us God's love, let alone the 4 billion that don't know bout it............
i'l leave you with that thought
god bless xxxx
