Good News!

BG 1

News we can’t escape it!
You turn on your radio and hear about the latest Nicki Minaj scandal!
You turn on your TV and there’s been a shooting.
Talking to people “have you heard about #TheDress” (By the way im #teamblackandblue)
You check out YouTube and on the front page is a video of a plane crash.
But I feel as though lately there’s been a lot of bad news going around.
No need to worry because I have some wonderful news to start off your week!

Are you ready?

Well here it goes….

2000+ years ago an innocent man died for me and your sins.
He was hanged on cross and was shamed so that me and you can be forgiven for the sins that we’ve committed.
JESUS DIED TO SET US FREE!
Isn’t that great, awesome and wonderful news?

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

So go ahead, Invite him into your life!

Music.

Blog Post 15.02.15 (1)

I use to love secular music especially rap music!
I remember staying up late listening to whatever song was popular at the time. I would have my headphones on while going somewhere, the music would be turn up to the max and it felt like I was in the music video lol. Music was my escape, when something was wrong music would help me and I would feel a lot better

When I came to Christ all that changed…I saw the kind music i was listening to for what it really was filth! it was at times demonic and it was just bad music. It took about two years for me to stop listening to secular music. Now if I listening to secular songs I feel really disgusting and bad. It’s crazy how God changed my life.

A few months ago I discovered Christian rap, pop and more… I was actually really shocked I never knew there was such thing. Its good music that has good message and the best of all the focus is on Jesus!
Here are some of my favorite artists….

God Is Good!

BlogPost 11.02.15

I would go as far as saying last week was one the worst weeks of my life.
The reason behind the unpleasantness of week was the fact that I backslid.
The week was filled with temptation and sin. I went back to things that I did before Christ. I was confused, sacred and depressed. Throughout the days all I wanted to do was cry. I was bullying myself for giving into temptation and not considering that I can’t conquer sins without God. 

One of the worst parts was when I went to church on Wednesday and the pastor asked me if I was ok and I lied and said yes even though I was screaming and crying for help on the inside. I went to the rest room in church and started to cry and asking myself why. My life hadn’t been this upside since before I got saved. I wasn’t reading his words and I wasn’t praying either.

Then Thursday came and I just couldn’t keep on going. I prayed to God and this sense of peace came over me and I remembered God is mercifully and if I am willing to confess he is willing to forgive (1 John 1:9). He doesn’t want to see me or you suffering. He wants us to put it all in his hands and come back Home to him. 

God is good!

My Hero!

BlogPost 06.02.13

This post is of an essay I had to write for English class. We were given a title and had to write around it. I received an A- on the essay.

My Hero

My hero is not a celebrity. He is not currently on earth and he is not a family member either. Some would say my hero is the greatest and most influential person of all time. Some hate and despise my hero. My hero changed the world while he was on earth. If we could count his followers through Instagram the numbers would always be going up and down and up and down.

He is not superman. He is not batman. He does save people yet some kill his people.
People are ashamed to admit that they love and have a relationship with him.
To the typical teen he is boring. To grownups he is sometimes seen as why the world has all these wars and problems.

Questions commonly asked about him are…Where was he in all my pain? Why doesn’t he just give world peace? And why are people starving if he is real? The fact is he is always here. We are just too caught up in ourselves to hear him.
My hero is Jesus Christ.
I don’t care what people say about me or him because he has changed my life in ways I can’t explain.
To you it might seem like a fairy-tale but to me his love will never fail!

Thanks for reading. God bless

Well Done

image

Today was a busy day and so I didn’t have time to write a proper post but I still wanted to write. I want to talk about a song i heard today while in praise and worship.
I believe the song’s name is well done sadly I couldn’t find the lyrics to put on here so I’ll just explain.

The song talks about making it into heaven, Jesus Coming back and God saying well done to the people who made it. One of the lines is “in the twinkle of an eye I’ll be gone” The song  really opened my eyes and it was powerful. It was the strength I needed to carry on! What the song taught me is to live for God and this life is nothing compared to eternal life. So make a decision Christ or the world.

So first of all thank you God and secondly thank you to the person who chose to do something for God and write that song!
That’s all I got for today.
Take care God bless.

A family friend recently passed away. My mother was the closest one to him.They had first met while my mother was caring for his friend. After his friend’s death he asked my mother to come work for him. He and his friend were both in their old age

He was a kind and was a pleasant person to be around. As far as I know he died unsaved although my mother would tell him about Christ and share her testimonies with him.Unfortunately he kept tradition and went on with what he grew up on (Idol worship) but I don’t want this to be a pity or shaming party.

He was such a great and loving person. He wasn’t like any other elderly person I knew. He wasn’t someone who thought down on teens, he was different. It was like he was a young boy with manners trapped in an old man’s body. In sickness he would try to push all the attention away and he was just as down to earth as if he were well. I can also remember some Sundays after church we would go down and visit him. We would have tea and biscuits while me and my sister sat on his massage chair.
He treated my mother like a daughter and he really helped her and our family through troubles. I thank God we had a person like him in our lives. It is hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that he isn’t here anymore. May the lord bless him.

If you have lost someone recently I want to tell you that God is there for you and he will help you through this difficult time just as he did with my family. Yes it is a hard time but give it all to God.

Matthew 5:4

Blessed are those who mourn,for they will be comforted.

God bless

Maybe.

Maybe

Maybe you’re at the point of breaking or maybe you have already given up.
Maybe you’re starting miss your old life or maybe you’re doubting God.
Well let me stop you there and to say “Have Faith in God”


Faith 
Noun \ˈfāth\
:A strong belief or trust in someone or something.


Maybe today was a bad day and you were hoping for sunshine but all that came was black clouds and heavy rain.
Have Faith in God!
There is hope in Christ and there are better days ahead! When you start trusting and walking according to his will your life will change!
So don’t give up now… Have faith in God!
Here are some Bible verses to keep you going.

Matthew 19:26
“But Jesus looked at them and said to them, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’”

Philippians 4:6-7
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank Him for His answers. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ.

Psalms 40:1-3
I waited patiently for God to help me; then He listened and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out from the bog and the mire, and set my feet on a hard, firm path and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, of praises to our God. Now many will hear of the glorious things He did for me, and stand in awe before the Lord, and put their trust in Him.

Finding Time For God.

Capture

It seems that the more time I have, the less time I spend with God.
When I do have the time I spend that time on Instagram or editing pictures for Instagram and I just want to say that I don’t think Instagram is bad as long as it’s used in the right way.

In this day and age there are so many things to do and with that comes so many things to distract us from God. Finding time for God can be hard especially if you live a very busy life.
I would imagine Jesus also had a busy life but even he took time to pray. When you do get a free spot on your schedule instead of spending that precious time watching TV,playing video games or going onto social media use that time to pray and give glory to God because he is worth it!  It’s like if you preach the Gospel and don’t have a relationship with Jesus. What you preach has no power.

To be honest I haven’t been putting this to practice myself and so for the rest of the month and for the rest of year I will be trying my best to spend more time with Jesus. I hope you join me.
Thanks for reading! God bless.
