When you are sitting alone in your bedroom, at your computer or whenever you are
and you think to yourself why is life like a bonfire? Why are bad things happning to my friends?
Why do people have so maney heated arguments, fighting against eachother, constanty
bickering and souting?
Why do they do this kind of stuff.
It can raise the question “Is my life going to become like that?”‘
 
John 14 v 1
Let not your heart be trobled, you beleve in God,
Beleve also in me.
 
Pray to God, he will hlp u through the fear that can overwhelm you.
God can give you the peacein your heart and mind.
Don’t be scared of praying to God, He will answer your prayers.
Share wih your friends the peace that you have found and help them to pray to God about their situation.
They too can have that sence of peace that you now have.

Well im sitting here in tech listening to mighty to save. And it just fills my spirit with joy and love. My god is mighty to save, that’s so true. Lately I’ve been wondering about how I can use my testimony to help others, like properly help them, My secret dream is to be able to teach people about the lord, show people how he can change every aspect of there life’s if they allow him into there life’s like. I just don’t have the bottle to talk about my past because sometimes I feel so ashamed about everything that happened to me, but then I realise that even though it totally sucks from my point of view I could totally inspire other young adults with it and show them that even though something terrible has happened to them they can take it and use it for the better instead of dwelling in it like I done for so many years. I try to keep my past my dirty little secret because I’m scared of what people think, I don’t want people acting different round me because of it. In 1 John 5:4 it says for everyone born of god overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. When I started to think more and more about this I realised how important it is for god to be in your life so you can over come any obstacle that is placed within your life. Some day ill be able to over come everything in my life that is holding me back from filling the life the lord has laid out for me. Because all I want for my life is to show young people the glory of the lord and that there’s so much more to life than sex and drugs.

God bless. Frankee x

I was given some great advice lately and I felt I need it to share it! So we all go through hard times ad end up in situations we don’t want to be in and sometimes if you talk to someone about it, they always say just hand it over to God and it’ll be sorted but its easier said that done and there’s time were you hand something over and then you try handing it over again but for some reason you just keep taking it back. I was told to look at it this way, imagine your hands open in front of you with everything you have in them, the good, the bad and the ugly, and lift your hands up to God and keep your hands open because if you close your hands and try to do things yourself, its not going to work out, you might end up leaving yourself in a worse situation, just give God all the control and in the end he’s only going to leave the best!

So don’t be afraid to give all the control to God, it might be scary not having control over what going on in your life but at the end of the day we are Gods children and he’s only going to give us the best!

Don’t Get Sucked In

March 10, 2010

In Genesis 27, Isaac said to Esau, “Go hunt and bring me the game, cooked in the way I like it, and I will give you my blessing.”
Rebekah heard, and went to Jacob; “Go kill one of the goats from the flock, and I will cook it up, and you will take it and receive the blessing from your father.”
Jacob said, “But he’ll figure out I’m not Esau and curse me!”
Rebekah said, “Leave it to me,” and she sorted everything out.  She gave him the food and he went to Isaac.  “Who is this before me?” Isaac asked.  Jacob answered, “I am Esau, your firstborn”
And that’s how Jacob sinned.  Of course he’d sinned before, but this time he was had a chance to run away from sin, and instead he jumped in with both feet.
His mother was tempting him.  She made it so easy.  She did almost every step of the preparations for him.  When Jacob found a problem with her plan, thinking his dad would find out their plan, she said she would handle it.  He didn’t stand up to her and tell her to stop.  He didn’t say that he shouldn’t deceive his father, and that her plan was wrong.  And I get it.  He loved his mother, and he respected her and trusted her.  She probably was doing this for him, and for his best interests. 
People around him were planning on doing wrong. He never stopped them.  Soon he became involved.  When he lied about who he was, he had officially and knowingly jumped into a ton of sin.
Its easy to get involved in sin. Jacob probably really trusted and loved his mother too, but she led him into wrong things.  Our best friends can cause us to sin.  It’s not always easy to stand by either, often times we really do end up joining them, whether its drinking when you’re underage, or lying to cover for your friends, or whatever.  Don’t get caught up.  Love your friends and family, but if it’s sin, don’t join them.

Marked

March 4, 2010

EVERYONE! Jump for joy! Shout out, dance, say “whoop whoop”, and get excited. Why? Because you are marked with a seal of a promise greater than ANYTHING promised or guaranteed in this world. The word of God says so in Ephesians 1:13. When Jesus faced death and WON, he put down a deposit on your life that is priceless. You are Gods most prized possession, and because of it you are promised the Holy Spirit and an inheritance of all of Gods kingdom and grace. It is God who created the blacksmith that made the weapons that can come against you, so if Gods with you, then who can come against you? Those who will attack you will surrender, anyone who accuses you will be rebuked, though mountains can be shaken and moved the unfailing love for you will not be shaken (Isaiah 54:10). You were made for glory! YES!!! MADE FOR GLORY! YOU! ME! US! I think that is something to be excited about, don’t you think? God is good, so smile!
