“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 a hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. This verse has helped me along with many others conquer all the obstacles God puts in front of us.”
Bikini’s, tight shirts, and tight pants. Sweatpants, baggy shirts, and sweatpants. When you look at these two groups of clothing, the first thing you compare is yourself and what you wear.
Suicide. When we hear this word, a lot of us (including me) like to skip over it because it’s either a word that we don’t want to think about, or just simply know how it feels to be involved in the thought process or knowing of someone who has made that drastic life choice. Statistics tell us that this is a serious situation that cannot be taken lightly. In Washington State, statics read that 10 in 24 young adults between the ages of 10-24, every week 2 of them commit suicide. 2!!!! Every single week! I don’t know about you guys, but this disheartens me. The fact that innocent people are taking their lives for whatever reasons, makes me re-evaluate how I treat people in life and how I, as a christian, are encouraging people in everyday life. I recently had a encounter with the word “suicide” and this is the story behind it.
Lord.. May I have a Word?
Daily routines are what saturate every human being into thinking that everything has to be perfect and on time. We plan out our whole day, and if something doesn’t go our way, we decide to throw a huge temper tantrum like 3 year olds do when they don’t get a cookie they demanded.
When you go into schools all across the U.S. you would think that the kids are there for an education; to learn, get challenged, and to reach goals they never thought were attainable. Well think again. Schools these days are full of smart comments about who had sex with who the past night or who their gonna have sex that night.
Ok… stop the train. We are in HIGH SCHOOL! Ages 13-18. We should not be thinking about these things this young of age.
