yah know what I just realized? Jesus only made 12 disciples. we, as disciples, are supposed to “go into the world and make disciples” Mark 16:15, right? then why do we worry about mass-revivals? numbers? when Jesus was here on the earth, he made 12 disciples, and told them to make disciples, and it was meant to be a pattern was it not? then why do we worry about numbers? numbers are...
you hold my world in your hand. *
kso, Im 15.. but I feel so much older. people tell me that Im “older than I am” and “wiser than my age” etc. and I so feel it. Im sooo ready to grow up ! and I know that I will regret saying that (says those who ARE older than me), but seriously, my age is SO limiting ! cant get a job, cant drive, cant go where I want to go, cant travel, cant possibly know...
I hate myself. well.. hate is a strong word. I really dont like myself. its cause I care too much about what people think. I know I shouldnt.. but I doo. just little things I do and say.. people just dont take it the way I intended it to be taken. I feel so socially awkward lately. its as if I dont even know how to act around people anymore :S I wonder if I was always like that and am just...

Do you know the way you move Him?

In the secret place, where you chose to die? Do you know that you caught My eye? In the secret place, where you chose to die? Daughter, I am captivated by you, I see you, I see all that you...
a fight with discipleship.
well, its almost 3AM and Im still not in bed.. so I thought Id blog on the thing that in the last post said “Ill blog about that later”. ‘I have been looking at people in a new light. I see them as more than people. I see them as souls now. my heart absolutely breaks when I think about how many people who walk by me will never know the love of Christ.’ when I walk by...
compassion and awe.
do you ever get a feeling that you cant fully describe in words? I have two very strong feelings upon me daily that are like that. the first one is compassion.. this is the one that breaks my heart. thats a really important thing about myself. Im an extremely compassionate person. God gave me a HUGE heart. and since I accepted Christ its just gotten bigger. lately more than ever, Ive been feeling...
God is Crazy About YOU.
If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. If He had a wallet, Your photo would be in it. He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning. Whenever you want to talk, He’ll listen. He could live anywhere in the universe, and He chose your heart. And the Christmas gift He sent you in Bethlehem? Not to mention that Friday at Calvary. Face it friend, He’s...
