i love when my youth have blogs and they don’t realize that i read them. anonymous reading of teens blogs gives me real, honest feedback concerning what we do. here’s what one of my teens posted today concerning the 24 hours of prayer we did today.
sooo… today i went up to the church to pray and man oh man! i was in there and it was just me and God. that was something i really needed. some one on one time with my Dad in a place that i love so very much. a place that i have seen Him move over and over again. i just got the reassurance that everything was going to be ok. that He is going to take care of us, of my family. it might take a little time, but He will make everything right again.
of course, sometimes the statements aren’t as positive. such as this one from the visiting preacher we had at church two sundays ago.
It was at this point I was getting enraged. i seriously almost lost it right in the middle of church. WHERE DID THIS GUY COME FROM? He was clever in using Louisiana terms to get people to buy it…even saying he lived in LA “way back when.” i seriously couldn’t believe such a false Christian could appear right in front of me and actually declare what he said to be true! I know what I believe…I know the truth, but I felt sad for the people who actually WENT and bought his book.
even the negative stuff helps though.
as a famous philosopher once said … “you take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have the facts of life.” truer words have never been said.
