#AMEN!!! Never forget it. Only God can provide for your every need at ALL times and only He save you from EVERY problem that you encounter in your life!
The Strongest Relationship you can have is with God.
sometimes people come into ur life and u know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach u a lesson, or to help u figure out who u are or who u want to become. u never know who these people may be (possibly ur roommate, neighbor, professor, long lost friend, lover, or even a complete stranger), but when u lock eyes with them, u know at that very moment they will affect ur life in some profound way. sometimes things happen to u that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but on reflection u find that without overcoming those obstacles u would have never realized ur potential, strength, will power, or heart. everything happens for a reason. nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of ur soul… without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. it would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless. love isn’t about luck… its about being the right person for the right person.
#AMEN - WELL SAID!!!
WHOA!!! P: I want some!!!
Gonna make this for my sister on Valentine’s Day!!! YAY!!!! <3
Here is an excerpt from a christian site I found which beautifully and peacefully states exactly how I feel about homosexuality:
Leviticus 18: 22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Leviticus 20: 13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
There can be no doubt that the Old Testament condemns homosexuality as a detestable act worthy of death. But we might ask, why such harsh penalty for a simple “sexual orientation?” The answer lies in the overall context in which the Old Testament is written. God had promised the Messiah who would be the Savior, the Deliverer of people from the judgment of God. If homosexuality was to run rampant, it would threaten the arrival of the Messiah and thereby make God’s Word invalid (essentially making God a liar), and this cannot be. Since God works through people, he provided the harshness of the law in order to guard people from their own sins, the sins of others, and ultimately provide a way by which the Messiah would come and die on the cross for our sins.
Of course, the Old Testament Law is no longer in effect in this area because the Messiah has come and we are not under a theocratic governmental system. Therefore, we are not to execute homosexuals. We are to pray for them and their repentance so they might find salvation in Christ.

This seems like a really nice Christian website. Check them out!
They answer MANY, MANY questions about Christians and Homosexuality! Very Lovely!
The Bible says it’s wrong. If you have a problem with me saying that, then ask yourself where I got the idea that it’s wrong. My response is: “From the Bible.” So it is God telling us what is acceptable and what is not. Because the Bible was written by the Holy Spirit…
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
…if you CANNOT accept the ENTIRE BIBLE as God’s Word - being fully honest and true - then you are slapping God right in His face, calling Him, the Holy Spirit and Jesus liars!!! God says that He is incapable of LYING.
Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
If God lied, even ONCE in the Bible, it would be COMPLETELY VOID, and so would Jesus’s sacrifice! But it still holds today! Thank GOD!!!
Romans 12:18 “If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.”
I really hope that this post has helped shed some light on this extremely controversial topic. I’m not against ANYBODY nor the way they choose to live, (UNLESS it affects someone else’s life who DOESN’T WANT ANYTHING to do with it or they are harming someone because of their “beliefs”). I am only against a person’s ACTIONS. I don’t hate anybody.
Love you all! <3
Take care!! <3
I’m going to do the unthinkable and tell you, it’s very hard to forgive. I’ve held many grudges against many people and I’ve learned to let them go.
The Bible says some CRUCIAL stuff about “forgiveness”:
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
However, I also find that forgiving yourself is also one of the hardest things to do! I still have problems with forgiving others too, but when I realize that I haven’t forgiven someone for something, I do some searching as to why. After I’ve figured out the reason, I pray and ask God to help me to forgive them.
For the longest time I’ve been angry with my biological father. I was angry because:
Yes, I hated him. Yes, I wished him a terrible torturous death - until I met Jesus. Now I only hope that my dad learns to have a personal relationship with God too!
When I met Jesus, I was 8. I was around 14 to 16 when the Holy Spirit showed me that these things didn’t matter anymore - all that mattered now was what I had.
In time I began to realize how blessed I was NOT to have him in my life… each thing that happened to me taught me something new! (In corresponding order to the negatives listed above!)
Because I’ve learned to forgive so many things that have happened to me throughout my life - don’t get me wrong, I’m still very young! - I’ve become happier because of it (and because of my personal relationship with God)! I don’t constantly worry about what others are saying about me. I know MY OWN family members hate me and are gossiping about me, but I don’t let that get me down because they don’t know my God. They don’t have the relationship that I have with Him. They can’t hurt me without God’s permission! For example: there was a knock on Susan and my door probably a few weeks ago. When we answered the door, a man gave us a row or nails that he said were under one of our tires! My opinion was that it was my older sister because of what had happened only the day before, but I’m not for sure. But do you see what I mean? The “haters” CANNOT harm you if you trust in God to protect you and guide you!!!
Please understand that it makes me extremely nervous, and uncomfortable to post this because I don’t like sharing this kind of information with people I haven’t even met before… and it makes me vulnerable to attacks, so please, be kind if you have any responses. Thank you!

This is what I found in the Bible. I’m leaning toward not getting married or having sexual relationships so that I can focus completely upon my God, Savior, Redeemer and my BEST FRIEND!!!
1 Corinthians 7:32-36
32 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:
33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.
34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.
35 And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction.
36 But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry.
God matters A LOT to me. If I ever marry, the guy would have to be AMAZING and love God with his entire being and realize that nothing is in his control, but God’s alone! We’d know that forgiveness will ALWAYS get us through and keep us together as long as we keep Jesus in our sights.
Romans 8:38 & 39
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
~<3~ God is BEAUTIFUL, FAITHFUL, HONEST, MERCIFUL & AMAZING!!! ~<3~
~<3~ JESUS FOREVER!!! ~<3~
