Okay…so I’ve been feeling sad lately. And I want to explain something…if that’s what you want to call it…explaining..I think I’m partly doing it for myself rather than you. Here it goes though. *Takes a deep breath*
If you’re feeling sad…lonely. Hmmm…I’m really not sure how to start this post!! Here:
I haven’t been feeling so happy lately. I keep getting a constant reminder of some friends that moved thousands of miles away…some that I’m not sure if I’ll ever see again. I miss them a lot. But I know of the thing, the only thing, that can fill up that emptiness: God. Just God. Sure, friends can help you feel a little better, give you comfort..but God’s the ONLY one who can seal up that wound. It hurts…I know, but God will help you, he is NOT going to let it get the best of you. He loves you, and he’ll carry you through it…all the way!
So if you have that emptiness inside, and you’re longing, grasping for something…turn to God, and tell him. And he’ll take your burdens away. Go lay in your bed. It’s alright to cry when you need to. Read a book, pray, make a list of people to pray for, blog about how God is helping you, take a walk in the rain for petty sake! 😛 But don’t pout, don’t give up. Don’t let Satan get what he wants, don’t let anyone or anything stop you…just LOVE God with all your heart, and let him lead you…and heal you.
Yes…it will still hurt, there may still be a slight trace of a scar…but a scar doesn’t prove that God didn’t care about you, and/or put you in a tough spot, it doesn’t prove that you can’t go any further…it proves that You were hurt, but you made it through, and God helped you get through it…Move on, and let the past be taken away. Like when you’re running a race, and you go past the 20 foot mark…you don’t just stand by it, waiting to lose…or lurk around it, using it as an excuse to stop running the race, you leave it behind, and you keep going, no matter what. The past. Yes I just made that up. 😉
Now I KNOW that it’s hard…and it will most likely still hurt…some. But God will ALWAYS love you, and ALWAYS care about you. He MADE You! He gave you life! He LOVES you. He sent his ONLY begotten Son to DIE for YOU! On the cross! His Son, Jesus, paid for your sins, ALL of them, and DIED, for YOU, on that cross. He loved you, THAT much! Then after Jesus died, he rose again, three days later. He had defeated death. Now, you can ask God to come into your life, and heart. You can ask him to take over, and lead. He’ll ALWAYS be there for you…no matter what.
Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: and let such as love thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.
Okay…soo…thanks for reading this post…if you’ve gotten this far, without skimming..which is doubtful… XD then congrats! 😛 🙂 😉 Finally, I want to say, that if you’re a Christian now, or have been, then you need to give a good example to others. If someone says that they’re a Christian, but are bossy and mean, and nasty, then not only do they dishonor and disobey God, but they also are giving a bad example to non-Christians. For example, if someone saw a Christian doing that, then he/she would simply think, “Well, if that’s what a Christian is like, then I SURE don’t want to be one of them!” But if they meet a nice, compassionate, caring, loving person, who says they’re a Christian, then they’re going to sense something different, and want that! So be the latter, and be kind, and considerate with your words! 🙂 😀 I hope I didn’t dig TOO deep tonight…but I hope that you also enjoyed this post! 😉 I thought it would be a good one! 😉 I have 694 words, so I’d better stop once I get to…oh wait, I just got to 700! XD Okay, then I’ll just stop when I get about to 750! 😉 😛 One more thing:
I wanted to tell you about something I did the other night:
I was in bed, waiting for daddy…and being the book reader I am, I picked up my book…you might think ‘so what, she decided to read!’, but you need to know, that it was 11:20 ish!! YES, at NIGHT!!!! XD 😛 Sooo…I read, until… are you ready… 12:00!! XD Midnight! XD 😛 sooo….ya, now you know a tad bit more about me that you might have not known! Haha! 😉 BTW, sorry for posting twice in one day!
P.S. whoops! I’m at 821 words! XD Not just 750! So much for stopping at 750! 😛 Oh well…I’ll make it 850 words now! 😀
