Sowing & Reaping

Hey!

Just a little reminder that your reward is on its way! The Bible says to not be deceived because God is not mocked, and that a man will reap what he sows. This means that all the selfless sufferings you have gone through are going to come back and bless you! You have not been forgotten by the LORD and he will surely do everything within his almighty power to see that you get repaid for these things. Trust him!

So don’t Give up! A time is coming when he will repay you for all the good you have done, and its gonna be so AWESOME!!!!

Student’s legal rights!

Hey!

I found this book on my parents bookshelf, and lo and behold, it had a list of public schooled students’ rights on campus! Sadly, theses are only public school ones so I’m not sure about anything other than that and home school. By the way, you have total freedom of speech in home school haha. My awesome friend Kaylyn has told me that a teacher in her class has falsely been telling them that it was illegal to talk about God on campus. At the sound of that both of us were filled with a feeling of righteous anger, and I was sure that it was a lie. However, I couldn’t remember exactly what her rights as a student are. So as I was saying, I found public schooled students rights, and here they are!

  1. You have the right to meet other religious students and even form groups and Bible Studies!
  2. You have the right to express your beliefs through signs, symbols, and clothing!
  3. You have the right to talk about your faith, or share your beliefs with other students on campus!
  4. You have the right to distribute literature (like  Bibles!) on campus during times you are not being instructed!
  5. You have the right to pray on campus by yourself, in groups, and even during graduation!
  6. You have the right to carry and/or study your bible or other religious literature on campus!
  7. You have the right to do research papers, speeches, creative projects or talent programs on themes of faith!
  8. You have the right to be exempt from activities that go against your religious beliefs!
  9. You have the right to celebrate or study religious holidays!
  10. You have the right to study themes of faith, religious literature, and religious history!

This awesome info was taken from the back of the book called The Truth for Youth! Look them up at http://www.thetruthforyouth.com 🙂

No condemnation!!!

Hey!

Just wanted to remind you that your old self is dead! If you have excepted Jesus as your LORD and savior, then according to the Word of God you are pure and righteous! All the old stuff has passed away and all things have been made new! The Bible calls you a Chosen Race, a Royal Priesthood, and Holy Nation! It says that God called you out of darkness and into wonderful light, that you are a New Creation and that your old self has been crucified! say goodbye to all that junk and forget about it! Break those chains of condemnation, depression and oppression and rise up to be the person God has called you to be.

Galations 2 : 20 (NIV)

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Has God given you a Vision?

Hey!

One thing I have noticed about the LORD is that he likes giving people visions. These visions can come in many forms such as seeing into the spiritual realm or just feeling a tug on your heart. I am writing this to talk about the latter. This special tug on your heart can not only point you in the direction you need to go, but also it can give you the strength to spring forward and do mighty works for the Jesus! If you don’t feel this today why don’t you ask the Holy Spirit to reveal your calling to you. His plans for you are beyond anything you could ever imagine 🙂

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

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.”

My Testimony of the Grace of God

Hey!

Really not much to say about me, but what God has done in my life, well, that’s a different story. About two years ago we lost our house among other things. At that point I got all uber depressed and stuff. I hated life, myself, and barely believed in God. Soon I wanted to kill myself and spent most of my waking life wishing for the strength to do it, after all, Heaven was supposed to be a better place right? Then God stepped in. I had always wanted to go on a mission trip, and I found my chance! I went to Northern Ireland with Teen Missions Int’l (teenmissions.org) a wonderful organization that totally changed my life. I made some amazing friends who were absolutely on fire for the LORD, and God healed my heart. When I got home I felt like a completely different person, I stopped some things in my life that kept me from God and kept on reading his Word and praying. That’s pretty much my story, and now I do everything I can to glorify God and live for him. He has saved me, changed my life, and done so much more I couldn’t write all about the times. Oh, and before I forget, he wants to do this for you too! Just ask him!
