God's Word!

Psalm 121: 1-2 (KJV)

"I will lift up mine eyes unto the hill, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth."

I love the Psalms because it's so encouraging. I can be down in the dumps, but pick up my bible, flip through to Psamls and feel encouraged. My help definitley comes from Him! Family, friends and loved ones can be of great help, but when it comes to situations where I feel alone and depressed, I know who to go to!

Christmas Is In The Air!

Hey Ladies and Gents,

The Christmas season in here!

Christmas is exactly one week from now! Although studying for finals is dimming the bright Chirstmas lights, I know that once I finish my last final exam, I'll feel that cuddly Christmas cheer.

Out Of Control

Some people like a little mystery -- I Don't!

I hate it when I feel like my life is out of control. When things aren't going as planned and everything is in the unknown section!
I know that as a Christian, I'm not 'suppose' to feel this way (?), but I don't think that anyone, Christian or not, likes it when they don't know what's going to happen next.

When I was younger, I used to think that there was a point in life when everything will always be OK. Yeah, there would be moments of unhappiness, but then 99.9% of the time, things would be fantastic! Yeah, right!

I'm really in a down mood, and I know that the best thing to do in moments like these, is to pray.
So much easier said than done, when all I want to do is disappear for a couple months. *sigh*, but God is my strength. And times like these aren't here to stay!

When Did A Christmas Tree Become A "Holiday Tree"?

I opened my Internet browser to Yahoo's homepage and I saw the 'news' headline about Holiday trees.

I understand that everyone wants to be religiously 'open', but I don't understand calling a Christmas tree a Holiday tree. It is a Christmas tree! Why should people of other religions be offended by that??

I remember the days, now long gone, when It was alright for teachers to say "Merry Christmas" and it was alright to have the word "Christmas" in commercials.

If one's not a Christian and don't believe in/celebrate Christmas, then ignore it, don't try to get rid of it!

I never see the cross, which is a Christian symbol, in public places, but I have seen many Menorahs in public places. It seems just a little ridiculous to me.

Any thoughts?

Perfection? Not In This Lifetime!

Alright, so maybe it's me.

Maybe I'm thinking too much into this? Casting my shadow on others perhaps.

But, I still can't shake the thought that a lot of Christians are trying to put themselves across as being perfect.
It's one thing to shun sin and another to act as though we have nothing to do with it! People sin daily, otherwise there wouldn't be a reason to repent and pray for forgiveness. Someone, correct me if I'm wrong.

Whether ''big sin''(Adultery, fornication, murder) or ''small sin''(lying, hatred, malice), intentional or unintentional, it's a part of our lives. No human is perfect.

I believe that the church should be like a hospital, not where the sick feels unwelcome and out of place. I am in no way saying the church should welcome sinners who is in the church praising God and still wallowing in their sin outside the church. What I am saying is, it's ridiculous for someone who commits a sin and is in the church fixing their wrongs, to feel like something is ''wrong'' with them and that they shouldn't be in the church. That's outrageous!
And the 'funny' thing is, the ones feeling superior to the sinner are usually the ones pretending to be perfect.

Which worse though? Committing a sin and striving to get above it or committing a sin but yet acting as though we don't know what sin is??

Thank God It's Over!

I am finished with my paper!!!

This was my first eight-pager paper and I completed it, and handed it in on time. And you know what else...there's no way I could have done it with God! Honestly!

I felt really frustrated and overwhelmed at times, because I had other assignment besides the paper that was due at the same time or before!
I'm happy to have it now a part of my past. And I know how to handle big papers.

What can't our God do? He's beyond amazing!

-God Bless!
