My mom, both my aunts, and my grandma saw Mathew West, Steven Curtis Chapman, and Sarah Palin for a Women Of Joy confrence or whatever it was. That's pretty dang cool.

I'm not a HUGE Mathew West fan, but I def do like his song Strong Enough. It came on the radio JUST when I needed it to and so I like it more now Smile

I saw SCC at Disney World when he was reading the Christmas Story and that was really cool too Smile

Hey Lauren, about what you said when Strong Enough came on the radio just when you needed it: I think it's amazing how God can use this music to help us through things. Courageous and Blessings are like that for me. I never really liked either of those songs...that type of music isn't really my thing, but I was going through something REALLY hard for me, and they came on, and I cried, and God gave me the strength to plow through what it was I had to do.

i think ive found a way to share thats not to all knowing online ok so when i was 3 months old my mom and dad got a divorce my dad was a good guy like he is a deacons son and he was raised right but when i was born my mom caught him cheating on her and he said he just couldnt haddle being a father and he didnt want anything to do with me for three years until my mom was being remarried to guy they called uncle malcom to me but i  since the start called him dad and still do but then i started going to his house on saturdays i loved it there then when i turned 5 i could start staying the weekends i still loved it but as i got older he went through dating a couple women but now he is with this women who is living with him and they have a baby together who is 4 the woman at first i liked she wnt to church and since then she has changed quite a bit and not tot mention she has a 10 year old daughter who gets favortism by both my dad and her mom and i really didnt want to go but in the last couple years they have both stopped attending church and i am like the only one ministering to my little brother but i had kinda been not going because of church things and then on the phone i was like well i can come and he was like welll finally but i have to go on a trip with my "step sisster" not even really cause thyre not married and i was like well i am your daughter and he flipped out on me well your the one at church the last 3 weekends and you need to get your prioroties straight and i told him i do God is 1st in my life.and then i ended up having to go anyway that weekend so thats how it went and usally i jus go with the flow and dont say much so it shocked everybody so i hope no body was to startled cause it wasnt that bad but there is more but ill think about sharing it later and im sorry this is so long

Bree, reading this made me want to cry. But you did the right thing: you stood up for what you believe in. God says that if we don't stand up for Him, we are not worthy of Him. I'm praying for you. Know that your brothers and sisters in Christ are praying for you.

We'll be praying for you.

Something my pastor likes to say: it's not those who have an easy life that are blessed; it's those that have a hard life.

The crazy thing is that when God blesses us and gives us what we want, we tend to FORGET Him!! (At least I do.) And that's awful! That's something that I have to always work at.

Bree
i Agree with you actually its funny i was just at a youth conventio and the pastor speaking said we needed to pray for crap in our life( and yes that is exactly what he said) and louie giglio on his Prayer remix talks about how we always pray for God to bless us, to watch over and protect us, be with us, and more but God doesn't want us to be prtected all the time i think you would have to see it he does an awesome job but im not doing very well explaining it but anyway it really spoke to me

I think that I do understand what you're trying to say. I believe that God sends these trials, not to SEE if we have faith, but to show how strong the faith is that He has given us and to strengthen us! Isn't that amazing?! The things that we think are bad, are really good. Just like the medicine our parents gave us when we were little! God is truly great!

one of the trials is a time of blessing. that is one of the hardest times to completly rely on Him we, as humans we like to think we are in control when everything is perfect then blame God when it isn't all that great

Lucy is a great song. It's makes you think about post-abortion parents in an entirely new light. The first time I heard it I was driving, and I did cry...so sad and touching

requoting what Caleb Grimm said on twitter
"Nothing says,God bless our home more then Ghosts and vampires(i think)" Totally agree not into Haloween just found out the true celebration for Haloween it was to invite all the evil spirits into the world before saints Day Nov.1 not happy 'bout that
hate it when twitter wont work on my computer
