HAPPENING NOW [VERY IMPORTANT]: Venezuela’s soldiers are killing their people. The Government is sending their armed gangs to kill them and they have censored all the media in their country, even blocking photos posted on social media sites. They shut down all the cable channels that broadcast news, so they can’t know what’s going on. The people have no source of protection at all. Students are protesting to save their country and their lives at this very moment. All they have are their social networks to get the word out so, PLEASE RE-BLOG THIS AND SPREAD THE WORD. VENEZUELA IS ON THE BRINK OF A CIVIL WAR AND CLOSE TO BECOMING A FULL COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP. THEIR PEOPLE NEED YOUR HELP. —— Please, this is very important to me, one of my closest friends went to visit family in Venezuela over winter break and they won’t let him come back to Florida. We’re graduating in a few months and it hurts me to know that his baseball career and all of his hard work and dedication to his grades here in the U.S. was all for nothing. Please.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16, NKJ)
When God sent His Son to earth, He opened the door of salvation to whoever would believe. That means anyone can become a child of His and have everlasting life! Isn’t it good that He didn’t just come to save certain kinds of people? Aren’t you glad He doesn’t have a bunch of rules and conditions for salvation?
Before Jesus came, people had to observe many laws in order to be holy enough to go into God’s temple. They were constantly performing sacrifices to pay for their sins just so they could be around the presence of God. Even then, their sins were only covered up. They were still there. But when Jesus came, He was the final sacrifice. His blood doesn’t just cover our sins; it washes them away! Now, instead of going to the temple to be near God, the Bible says we are the temple, and He chooses to live inside of us!
Today, thank God for His mercy and for extending the gift of salvation to whoever believes in Him. If you’ve never asked Jesus to be the Lord of your life, there’s no better way to start the New Year! Choose Him and choose life and start the year off right!
Whenever I hear common saying’s about who God is, I never really think about them. They are just something that go in one ear and out the other. I never really think about them. Today I was listening to a song and the singer said “You are a bridge over troubled water.” This was the first time that I ever actually thought about that phrase. God truly is my bridge over troubled water. He is my clear and safe path, specifically ordained for me so that I can escape any peril set before me. If anyone had the option to walk across a dry bridge versus struggling to cross through a rushing river, why would they choose the latter? God makes our way straight, plain and clear. He is The Way (Truth and Life). I feel honored and blessed that He cares about my safety and security. He truly is my provision; my bridge over troubled water. For me that water often consists of many different things (sin: idolatry, slothfulness, worry, and doubt…just to name a few). He offered himself to be a bridge just for me. How could I choose to cross by any other way.
Man…this really hurts. Continue to pray for his family and friends.
Rev 21:4 and He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall no longer be any death; there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”
There is no pain that we feel that God hasn’t already overcome. Turn to Jesus, give him your worries, concerns, and doubt. Trust in Him and allow him to heal you.
Depression is real, if anyone ever needs a listening ear. I am here.
My mom and I decided to take a trip to the wonderful world of Walmart today to pick up some cat food and paper towels. While wandering down the isles of messily stocked shelves, I began to tell her more about my friend Julia.
You see, Julia was in a freak accident that left her severely…
