my close friends…..it seems to change on a daily basis…. friendship is a very hard topic with me because almost every friend i have ever had has betrayed me. this summer, like i said in a previous post, i learned what it was like to be a true friend and this year i am learning what its like to have true friends. As far as closest friends go most of them are boys because they stay out of drama and that is what im trying to avoid. so heres my list
1. Tim Rhoden- he has been there for me through it all and has brought me so much closer to God and if it werent for him i actually might not be here right now. You could say God sent him in the nick of time :)
2. Dalton Blum- he, as well, has been there for me through it all and he 100% completely understands everything i go through. He is my big brother and he protects me on a daily basis :) he is like my guardian angel.
3. J.R.- he is such a cool dude and i know him thanks to tim :) haha he is a great friend and i hope we stay friends for a long long time :) he is ALWAYS there for me.
4. Clayton- he is such an awesome dude :) weve been through alot to gether. through thick and thin fights and crushes weve made it through to be best friends :) he is literally me in male form haha we were probably twins in a prior life haha but i love him to death and he loves me back. i can always count on him.
as for the girls here goes :)
1. nikki- we have known each other sense kindergarden and i love her to death i know that we will be lifetime friends :)
2. Kennedy- me and kennedy have been through almost anything you could think of together. i know she has my back and i hope she knows i have hers :) i love her also to death haha
3. Hope Chavez- She has been a huge insperation 2 me and has been there beside me to support me through all my descision good or bad :)
4. Kaytlin- i havent known her very long but i know that me and her have alot in common. im there to support her through everything and i hope she does the same :) i love her so much
so theres my closest friends. i hope that they stay with me for a long time and i hope that things between us only grow together and grow more in God. it has taken me a LONG time to find who my true friends are and i hope im right when i say these are them :) i love them all so much and they have done so much for me i only hope i can pay them back and not be a burden on them :) thanks 4 reading
"i am enjoying life and my purpose in life is to talk about God and tell others about Him that is enjoying life doing what He has commanded you to do. you should try it sometime with out Him there is no life to enjoy"
again after i responded they said”My point exactly you don’t need to make everything about god we all know your a Christian but you don’t need to be cocky and annoying about it…if we wanted to know more about your faith we would have asked" again i resonded, "its my job to include God in everything i say and do how can i not constantly talk about the one who created me exactly how i am and sent His only Son to die on the cross for me and you and everyone. I dont know about u but ive never had someone that dedicated to die on the cross for all of us and what He went through in the whole process…He was beaten till the point of death then forced to carry His own cross all the way up to calvery hill then His wrists and ankles were nailed down on the wood and a crown of thorns was driven into His head and He was hung there to die the worst possible death when He was 100% completely innocent so im sorry that it upsets u that i talk about my God so much but i wont stop and knowing that it bugs u means im doing my job and getting His name out there" after all of this i really started thinking about how truly important it is that we try our hardest to get God’s name and His word and story out into the world. Just like this people should be getting annoyed with how much you talk about God. Guys i’m not trying to brag trust me its all because of Him that i’m even here and doing all of this. He has changed my heart and opened my eyes to His grace and mercy and a whole new kind of love. This just made me aware about how much people do notice when others have God in their life. We need to be His disciples though our WORDS and ACTIONS!!!! We need to be nice to EVERYONE even when they act like they hate you or be there for people even when you probably could be doing something better. We need to apply Him to all aspects of our lives as much as possible and that is what we need to concentrate on, not our outfits for that day or who the boy/girl is that we like or that likes us. This is to try to encourage y’all to do this and to keep eachother (even me) accountable every day and many of you already do. Bronwyn and Taylor Mason are HUGELY good examples of this. They inspire me every day. Thanks for reading guys and I how you take this to heart. :)
I understand that this must be a distressing sight to see, but for Emily, this has been reality.
Emily was born in 2002 with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. This plainly means that the left side of her heart does not work.
She has had three operations, one at 2 days old, one at two years old, and one at four to correct this, but when she hits her teenage years Emily will have to be opened up again and have a new heart plumbed in. Emily will be around 15, the age where looking beautiful matters.
But at 15, all Emily will be focused on is being alive. There are not enough hearts to save Emily.
Emily is eight now, and is not worried about what is in store for her.
Emily is a very brave child, but she’s also my very brave sister.
So please support the National Donor Registry by reblogging and help Emily fix her heart.
Thank you xxxx
Please pray for her and her family as she goes through another operation, and with all her future operations as we know that her heart will keep having problems until she gets a new one.
friendship is such a deep word that is way to over used. In the Greek language there are 3 words for love; Eros, Philio, and Agape.
Eros is a passionate love with a sensual desire and longing
Philio literally means friendship in Greek. It is a love that is focussed on close association and loyalty.
Agape is the very nature of God because God is love. Agape is love because of what it DOES not how it FEELS. For God so loved(agape) the world that He gave is only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. God didnt want His only Son to die but He loved us and He knew it had to be done. Agape is a SELF SACRIFICING love for someone or something and it is the main and only true kind of love
In our generation we have completely lost sight of what true friendship is. i only recently discovered what its like to have real friends and what its like to be a true friend. Life is never fair and never how we want things to go. Friendship is not hanging pout and having fun on the weekends dissing each other and telling perverted jokes. It staying up with each other those nights when that boy broke your heart or that girl called you something or even when your thinking about suicide or your dad comes home drunk. you need friends who will come to your side at the drop of the hat and doing anything possible to help you through what ever your going through. More importantly we need to be like that to others. Never just ignore someone because you might be the last pereson they try to get help from. Always be nice cause that one mean thing you say might be the one thing that pushes someone over the edge. Talk about God as much as you can to as many people you can. Most importantly just be there when someone needs you. Be willing to listen and be willing to share your story no matter what it is because God gave it to you for a reason and that reason is to use it to help people just like you who need you words of wisdom and encouragement. Find people who you can open up to and just go share what God has done in your life. That’s my challenge to yall for the rest of the week and then come back and tell me how it went :) love yall sooo much

Talk about your piercing and tattoos if you have any.

1 Thes. 5:10 He died for us so that whether we are alert or asleep we will come to life together with Him.
Romans 14:8 if we live, we live for the Lord; if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s
1 Peter 2:24 He Himself bore our sins in his body on the tree that we may cease from sinning and live for righteousness. By His wounds we are healed.
i personally love my middle name, although i wish not as many people had it. Nicole means victory over the people so i feel like it is a very strong name and when it says victory i think of God and how He can use me to be victorious over His people and that He can use me to get people to follow Him. :)
Clayton: hey ur a great dude :) im so glad we r twinkies haha but keep it up and dont let ANYTHING get u down dont think ur grades reflect who u are ur amazing and dont let people tell you otherwise :) ur awesome bro and i love ya
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ-by grace you have been saved- 6and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared before hand, that we should walk in them.
Grace- God’s gift of salvation granted to sinners for their salvation
Remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the common wealth of Isreal and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope without God in the world.
How would you like to live in a worl without hope and without God?
