I’m sorry but i am so sick of rude anons seriously if you want to ask a question that’s fine, in fact that’s what we like but I’d you’re just going to sit there and tear people down just get a life. Because you know you’re so big when you fight with people behind a tiny little grey face. Seriously grow up. Stop being a whiny stubborn “know-it-all” when really you’re not even listening to the reply. Just stop. People don’t need to be made to feel crap about themselves I’m pretty sure that the rest of this world does a good enough job of telling them this, so shut up.
Being the last day in 2011 I figured that it was appropriate to reflect on the things of this year;
1. Finished school
2. fell for one of my best friends
3. made an awesome american friend ;)
4. got a job
5. decided to go to college next year
6. watched a sunrise
7. learnt new songs on guitar
8. took some epic roadtrips to hawks away on holiday with friends
9. got my green p’s
10. got ridiculously lost driving in syd, especially to koorong (every single time!)
I love it when you sing, and so does Jesus.
People should sing all the time. As if it’s not good for you and your spirit. It’s pure expression, raw and real. I don’t think you can lie in song. If someone’s heart isn’t in it, you can tell. It feels false and wrong. And don’t we kinda want that don’t we all just want some truthful people, cause isn’t it lies that always hurt the worst? A new generation that can do truth, but with love as the motivation.
Happy but utterly exhausted.
Over the hills and everywhere
Go, tell it on the mountain,
That Jesus Christ is born.” —(via hymnlyrics)
So I’m struck between the dichotomy of what I know in my head I be right and true and the worries that are whispered to me from the depths of my heart that presses in on me.
Recently I can honestly say I’ve been having amazing blessings from God the Father (random question but does anyone else seem to have days/periods where one part of the trinity is more prominent than he others?) has been supper kind and gracious to me. There has been wounds in my heart which have been healed, extreme peace and insight into many things. Also drawing me back to him but in the same way growing my spirit and just showing me glimpses of the person I could grow into being. And with God is the moulder there is a LOT of potential inside everyone of us.
And yet there are moments where I can honestly say that I loose my head and freak out a bit (sometime more than that). Where I worry about things that are outside of my control, about my relationships, my ability to communicate and about the future or other things. And I can really freak myself out. Good and proper.
I find myself eating a good piece of humble pie as I am forced to take my own observations of the world to which I know I’ve considered them to be folly and say “look now. Those people you’ve scorned and said look at them see how they freak out and don’t trust god with their future, or maybe only part of their future.” well I can say that today moreso that even though I’ve been richly blessed I’m often lead astray. I think today as I alternated between these two states of mind God really showed me the difference between being a child and fully trusting him and a half hearts apathetic approach to trusting him. And I think that with faith, true faith, come the true peace of god (Phil 4.7). And really we can come to understand that a lot of the pressure that we, as young people face today is unnecessarily placed by us upon ourselves, we can choose whether or not we allow the lies that are whispered to us affect our thinking. I think today I’ve come to understand a little bit more how when we ‘set our minds on the things above’ the things that did concern us, or our worldly values really don’t become a concern for us. And it’s really great because it’s not about who others want you to be. It’s about who you are in god.
