The hate messages in my other blog, godsradicaldaughter, are getting practically worse. They’re really really painful. Profanity is used, insults are hollered at me, and my God. I guess it’s still okay that they judge and insult ME, but not my GOD.
All I know that the God I serve is not a figment of my imagination, not unfair, not a tyrant, and NOT A LIAR. My faith is not what those people think it is. It is greater. It is much deeper than a belief, or a fact. It is a relationship. It is a real, breathing, living connection between me and the big divinity who loves me.
I’ve long decided not to block those people, because somehow, I’m still praying that one day, God will use my blog to touch their heart. I am still praying for those people.
"Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me. See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.”
Imagine a life where God is just in the next room, and you can come personally to him anytime you want. You can see him, and talk to him, and play board games with him. He will say a few jokes, make you laugh, and cook for you. He will tuck you in before you sleep. He will read books with you. He will get a guitar and sing with you. He will put a hand over your shoulder and say how much he loves you. You will be his beloved child, and he will be your father forever. There is no death, and nothing can set you apart. It will be eternal happiness with an eternal family, in an eternally beautiful place under the rule of a just and loving Father.
If you can imagine that my friend, and you can’t wait for that time, then,
You can’t wait till you get to heaven and spend eternity with God.
Whew… My brother just made his Tumblr account and has been nagging me to promote him. He just made it today, and he needs followers. Well, I guess he kinda got interested in Tumblr, and has convinced ME to make him some typographies. phew.. anyway, i love my brother and i’ll do anything for him.
So please follow him?? He’s saying that he’ll follow back. :D
Thank you! thank you! you’ll be doing me a GREAT favor if you do it. (SERIOUSLY.)
That heartbreaking moment when you suddenly feel so depressed and hopeless, and you don't why. You feel like you're lost by the unstoppable circumstances in your life, and now it's careening out of control. Then comes that heart stopping moment when God's presence surrounds you, and your heart becomes heavy, and you're crying and crying because the pain is too much. When everything is so lost and confusing, and you don't have a clue at all, remember that God cares, and he sees, and he loves you. That's the only thing you have to know. You have to remember.
It doesn’t matter why I’m feeling like this. In my pain, depression, and cluelessness, God still loves me. I am not alone, whatever is this I’m going through..
“On one side stands the crowd.
Jeering. Baiting. Demanding.
On the other stands a peasant.
Swollen lips. Lumpy eye. Lofty promise.
One promises acceptance,
the other a cross.
One offers flesh and flash,
the other offers faith.
The crowd challenges, “Follow us and fit in.”
Jesus promises, “Follow me and stand out.”
They promise to please.
God promises to save.
God looks at you and asks…
Which will be your choice?”—Max Lucado (via godsradicaldaughter)
I was listening to two of my friends chatting while eating...
They were talking about where were they will go to college next year.
AJ:I think I won't attend in a faraway university. I'd like to stay here, near the church.
ERICA:Yeah, well... maybe.
AJ:It doesn't really matter where you study, or how great the university you'll be going to is. Wherever you are, wherever you go to college, what really is important is that God's favor never leaves you. You will be blessed.

anti-christ or not, jesus doesn't kill anybody. i'm pretty sure that he doesn't go around killing people who don't believe in god. get your facts straight.
hi! i agree with you. Jesus will NEVER kill anyone just because that person hates him, or does not believe in him. That’s not Jesus. He died for all of us even when the world did not believe in him. Jesus draws people to him because of love, not through violence.
however, i don’t think that the story did NOT point out that JESUS was the MURDERER. NO. Jesus held the boy in his darkest moments. He didn’t kill his parents. He never willed that. Jesus loved the boy despite of his background and ignorance of who He is. Beloved, I am really sorry that it seemed to you that Jesus was the cause of the murder. NO.
Dark times like that happen to ALL of us. It may not be in the same form, but they do. We’re in the enemy’s turf, but we can hope that God’s protection is in all of us. He is covering us. He is there. He will never forsake us. :) But like the boy, we are all safe and secured and held by Jesus. He is always there.
God bless! I’m really sorry that it kinda offended you.
