Okee dok (weird saying, i know.) I just wanted to share a couple of thoughts and feelings i've been having. I usually don't even blog on here (even though the site is called blogger haha) or even talk about personal stuff. to tell the truth, I only come to my blog to listen to my playlist, but I decided that today, I'd try blogging like some people actually do.
So I'll start by an update.
alright, so for my internet life. (i am such a geek lol) See? i even use the stupid text expressions like "laugh out loud" when really, I'm not even laughing out loud. Or on the inside, really. like "LIL" Laughing. inside. loudly. wow, i go off on tangents. but to the point. I facebook way too freakin' much, which is true for everyone, whether you have the guts to admit it or not. i'm ashamed to say I recently joined a site called "my yearbook". Just another thing for me to get addicted to, right? And really, whats with all this "book" stuff? honestly. Can we think of some cooler names people?
I was reading some scriptures, and I found a few things that I really liked. Here are some.
James 4:14, 15, 16, 17
14: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
15: For what ye ought to say, if the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
16: But now ye rejoice in your boastings. all such rejoicing is evil.
17: Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
Honestly, I am guilty of this. Lately I've just been doing whatever I want to do, and knowing that I should be doing what I know to be good, but being afraid of standing up for it. I still am.
I always think "if i just be myself, and stand up for what I believe, I will be an example to all. That If i did that I would be helping others so much more, and I could change lives. I could inspire others to become better." this next scripture reminded me that.
"Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins."
another scripture that reminds me...
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your father, which is in Heaven."
This next scripture from james 5, got me.
Vs. 13: "Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms." Sometimes it's just so easy for me to forget that God is just right next to me, ready to help. I forget that life is all about the journey to our destination, not the destination in itself. It's the little things in life that remind me of these simple things. There is so much to be happy about! think about all the times we sit around, complaining about the way we look, or planning what to wear, worrying, worrying, worrying. It's all about attitude. I can't stand watching TV drama, where girls sit around yelling at each other and whining about e-v-e-r-y thing!!! come on girls, your wasting your time. Sometimes, I find myself looking in the mirror and saying "why can't I look more like so and so?" or, "why can't I be as pretty as her?" At times like these, I stop myself, and remember that I am my own beautiful, and that God created me exactly the way I am, without one mistake. this is the way he wanted me to look; and then, I have the strength to quit comparing myself to others, and just be happy. :)...like that cute little smiley over there.
