Can't Do It Alone

I never really realized how hard it is to try to do things on your own! Often in life I try so hard to solve my own problems and issues the way I think they should be solved, but I forget I am ignoring someone vital! My heart and mind are stubborn, I want to do everything on my own and asking help is my last resort! I have come to understand I am nothing without God, I can do nothing without Him by my side! Spending your whole life trying to fix things on your own is not the answer, seek GOD!!! The Lord states in Jeremiah 29:11,"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." This is proof that He has the ultimate plan, call to Him and He will answer. It does not matter what you have done! Whether you have or are using drugs, or if you have lost your purity, it does not matter your sin God accepts everyone and answers all who call! In conclusion God will ease your pain all you have to do is ask Him!

Speak Out

We all must act now and not later! Act to save people, act to multiply the christian population. I find myself often throughout my day complaining and being bitter over things, but it has dawned on me "why be bitter and angry?" No one truly knows when their time is up on this earth, we must live for today and spread the gospel so those around us can have a better tomorrow! Recently in my life I lost my main thing I lived for and that was playing football, now it is gone! I thought I would have it forever giving all my time and efforts to better myself in the sport not giving a care for anyone but myself! In the blink of an eye it was taken away leaving me with a sense of helplessness! Lesson to be learned do not focus on the things of these world but focus on what you can do for the betterment of God's kingdom! Fight and never stop fighting until your soul meets the heavens, no matter what hardship you go through use it for good and bring blessings to those around! A life should be well spent, LIVE IT FOR GOD!!! by: Nathaniel Hall

Nothing Satisfies but God

I have found that in life it is hard to find satisfaction. No matter what you have accomplished you still can not seem to find joy or happiness. I constantly realize that with everything that goes on in my life joy almost always seems to leak out. I am not saying that I lack happiness or am in a state of depression but that  all the good things in life are only temporary. I come to the realization that there is one thing that remains constant and brings instant joy into your heart and that is Christ. People go to youth group at church just to see friends and not expecting to experience any spiritual moment. Then the music sounds, God and His angels enter the room through the songs giving you an overwhelming feeling. At this moment joy is existent God is in you and life's pain just fades away. I give the analogy of worship not to say that it is the only source of joy but i bring it up as a supporting factor that through God joy is constant in your life. This world has nothing for us, nothing to satisfy our sinful hearts but God's mere presence can bring overwhelming satisfaction. I challenge all readers to stop looking for satisfaction in this world and look upon Christ for he satisfies every craving.

Just ask Him!

My mind is always full of doubts. I constantly wonder why would I ask God for that He won't answer. The Lord definitely has proved me wrong over the years. As a little kid I had a head injury that limited me a great amount. I could not play sports I thought I would never be worth a thing, until I asked Him. I prayed to God asking, "Lord please allow me to be able to do sports and have fun?" I presented this question with many doubts not knowing if He would answer or even hear my prayers. The next week my doctor cleared me and allowed me to become an athlete. I tell you this story to show you that Christ really does hear and answer prayers. All you have to do is ask Him!

Day by Day

Courtesy of Google
Everyday with Christ is a great one. It is Sunday the Lord's day a day to praise, a day to fellowship with other christians, and a day to spend time with family. When I roll out of bed in the morning, I try my best to thank the Lord for letting me breathe just one more day. The reason I try to think Him everyday is because it just might be my  last. In Matthew 25 the Lord tells us to be ready and be waiting for He will return and take His children home. This can bring panic, a sense of urgence, not knowing how much time you have left on this earth. I truely do not believe in thinking about what is next, I live my life day by day, minute by minute, thanking God for every second I have until my last breathe. I may leave this earth in the next second or the next hour, no one knows but as long as I am here as long as I have time I am going to make a difference. As christians our mission is to live life to the fullest away from sin and to be a leading example for those who are lost. So I encourage everyone who reads this, be an example lead God's children back to Him and be ready because He will return!
