Never fails....

     God never(ever) fails to show me just what I need, when I need it.
Tonight he showed me this verse, and boy did I need it!

      Psalm 119:25-32, "I am laid low in the dust; preserve my life according to your word. I recounted my ways and you answered me; teach me your decrees. Let me understand the teaching of your precepts; then I will meditate on your wonders. My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word. Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me through your law. I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws. I hold fast to your statutes, O LORD; do not let me be put to shame. I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free" 
  This passage hit me hard. It pretty much speaks for itself. And I think it's a prayer we should all be praying for our own lives.

"I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free." Wow.

It's True

Truck Story

This is a song I wrote about...2 or 3 years ago I think.
Based of Taylor Swift's "Love Story" ;)
enjoy! :D

Truck Story

I was so green when I first met you,
I rub my eyes,
and the flashback starts,
I recycled,
In the summer air I recycled.

See the world.
See the paper. We re-use.
See I make my way through the crowd,
Say re-use! Little did I know.

That I was so naive. I was wasting my life,
And my parents said stay away from environment,
And i was crying, without a savings,
begging you, please, save the trees I said.

Forever I would recycle, until that day,
I was waiting for the world to melt before me,
I'd save the trees and I'd save the hot bees,
It's a green story, feel the breeze.

So I put on a jacket, cuz then I saw,
The world ain't gunna melt before my eyes,
So get your cash,
And we'll go buy a big diesel truck.

Cuz I was so naive, I was wasting my life,
And my parents said stay away from environment,
But you were everything to me,
I was begging you, please save the trees I said.

Forever we would recycle. Until that day,
I was waiting, for the world to melt away,
I'd said save the trees and I'd said save the hot bees,
It's a green story, it comes like fleas.

Oh diesel save me, they're tryin' to tell me what to buy,
This love is difficult, but it's real,
DOn't be afraid, no smart car for me. Oh no.
It's a truck story, diesel how you flow.
Oh oh

I got tired og going green,
floudnering in a world that was alaskan bound,
my faith in you ain't fading,
when I drive you on the outskirts of town, and I said,

Diesel truck save me. I've been feeling so alone.
I kept waiting for a smart car, that didn't run.
It was in my head. I didn't know what to think.
You came around and saved me. What joy you bring.

And I need you diesel truck.
I'll never have to be alone.
I need you and that's all I really know.
I pulled out some cash, so now I can buy you.
IT's a truck story, diesel just say yes.

oh oh
oh oh
Cuz i was so green what I first saw you...

Accepting God's Plan

     Some things are hard to accept sometimes.
     For me one of the biggest things has been changing Churches and not being able to see my old friends.
The people at my new Church are great and most of them have been an awesome encouragement for me in my walk with the Lord. But it's not the same as being with those who I grew up with. And when I hear about all these events they go to together...a lot of times it hurts and I feel very lonely.
     But God has been showing me lately that he has a plan for me. That if I don't get to go somewhere, it's HIS plan. HIS will. He doesn't want me to go on that missions trip, or that seminar or that campout with all my old friends. So what do I have to complain about?
Do I want to go against God's will? Certainly not! So I've learned to be content with WHATEVER his plan is for me. And it isn't easy, at all.
     Jeremiah 29:11,For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
     I am truly happy. I am truly content to follow God with joy in whatever his plan is for me. :)
     So in whatever situation I am in. I will REJOICE! I will PRAISE God!
     1 Thessalonians 5:16-18,  "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." It doesn't say "Rejoice when you feel like it" or "give thanks when it's going well" it says ALWAYS. In EVERYTHING.

     This is a music video I made awhile kinda goes along with this. :)

Some posts are hard to write...

This is one of those. Hard because it's sad, and it's true.
You may have seen my post I made about the suicide. (You can see it here) But I wanted to make another post, with some more details on what happened.

     Some things come as a shock. And when you reach those moments you don't know quite what to do. Eight days ago Rachel came into my room and by the look on her face I knew something was seriously wrong. She asked me if I could handle some really bad news. Then she told me she had just gotten off the phone with out Aunt and that Sarah, the girl we work with each year selling plants at my Aunt's house, had likely committed suicide.
     I felt like someone had punched me. Hard.
     Rachel went on to say that she had been missed for over 3 hours and there was evidence on her computer that she was planning to kill herself.
     One moment life can seem just fine. The next you can feel like your whole world just crashed in on you.
     I was awake most the night, praying and hoping.
     The next day brought the news no one wanted to hear; They found her and she had killed herself.
     For the next few days nothing seemed to matter to me. I just kept thinking about Sarah.
     Hadn't it just been a month ago I had worked with her? Never would I have guessed that was was going to commit suicide.
     She wasn't saved, nor is any of her family.
     It hurt when I heard it happen. It still hurts.In the blink of an eye your whole life can change.
     Some things come as a shock.
     Some things come as a blow.
     And some, change your life forever.
