Praise Everywhere!

Finally, today is the Area Wide Youth Rally, and I'm so excited to meet more people from other churches to praise the Lord with them....well, I will probably praising God through the sound room, but it's meaning is just as strong haha. I hope to make more friends tonight, and I hope everyone has a blast!

Update On Event
This youth night was ok, but had one problem....EVERYONE STAYED CLEAR OF EACH OTHER!!! It's like they were making a remake of white and black segregated schools, people just wouldn't leave their groups that they always hang with...I tried to sit at another groups table, but it was full. I forgot about this problem always occurring, and it brings back my terrible past, when I was alone. I pray that some kind of change happens for the next Praise Everywhere. If the next Area Wide Youth Night ends up being another Area Wide Youth Segregation, they need to stop having them in the first place, or it's meaning was done in vain, I loved the idea during the service where all the churches mixed up into one big family, no cliques, no barriers, just one unit, the way it should be, but of course after it was all over everyone retreats to their barriers and back to step one. Someday this will surely improve, I just don't know when...

People Are Truly What Makes Life Worth Living For

When I was younger, oh lets say around 17 years and below, I couldn't stand people, I despised them and dreaded being around them. I realized this year, as my life took a direct U-turn, that people is what life was all about to me. Being able to be with people made my depressing gloomy life, into a more pleasant and fun life. Suddenly youth starting becoming a valuable meaning to me, so I started helping out with that. After I started noticing that I was special to people, I felt the same way about them, I felt more like family everytime I stepped into that building. I hope I become a good influence on someone, just like everyone has been to me.

Death Occurs When You Least Expect It

The news of a teacher at our school passing away was quite a shock. You never expect someone to die, especially a teacher only a semester after she leaves. This lady died of something, no one knows for sure of what it was, but it was on Sunday as Spring Break was coming to a close. I speek of this news only to say that you never know what terrible things could happen to you or someone else within a short span of time, so if you care about someone or you want to accomplish something before that unknown time occurs, you should do something about it. Don't let regret or any other sad things dwell on you. I may have not known this teacher very well, but I do remember talking to her, and it was sad, but these small memories can have a great impact on someone depending on what it was.

Another Meaningful Song

I came across another song, and it truly states a lot of awesome words. The song is by Wayne Watson.

For Such A Time As This

Now, all I have is now
To be faithful
To be holy
And to shine
Lighting up the darkness
Right now, I really have no choice
But to voice the truth to the nations
A generation looking for God

For such a time as this
I was placed upon the earth
To hear the voice of God
And do His will
Whatever it is
For such a time as this
For now and all the days He gives
I am here, I am here
And I am His
For such a time as this

You - do you ever wonder why
Seems like the grass is always greener
Under everybody else's sky
But right here, right here for this time and place
You can live a mirror of His mercy
A forgiven image of grace


Can't change what's happened till now
But we can change what will be
By living in holiness
That the world will see Jesus

Bonfire, The Place To Meet New People

Today at the Kenney's house a bonfire was held. They used a dead tree to make the fire, and we ate hot dogs, pie, and some type of fruit salad stuff. I met a lot of new people from Marshall and some old ones. The people were Japanese students and the NorWay Church Youth Campus Minister, he seems like a really nice guy, but acts sort of backwards, and I couldn't start a conversation for some reason. I was told that he will hunt me down when I come to college, lets see if that really happens, it will be interesting. I think it's great to meet new people, you learn things you never knew before, or you just get to say you met someone that day, who knows, I might make a ton of friends when I get to college! Geez...I still have like 3 weeks or so of High School left...WHEN WILL IT END!!!!

Recovered Finally...?

As many people may already know, I have been sick with a massive sore throat, and feverish activity from a friend since Saturday evening. I think 3 days of this illness is enough, and I think I finally recovered from this piece of turmoil that was ruining my Spring Break! Who knows what tomorrow is going to present me, I just pray that it's all over and I can enjoy what is left of my break. Thanks to this cursed illness I now probably know every commercial on the comedy central by heart, since they played the same garbage over and over again, not to mention that I saw a lot of funny stuff! Being sick always made me realize how much I miss feeling better and when I do feel better I want to make the best of it!

My Steps To A Decent Life.

Although I have only been alive on this world for only 18 years, the drama and troubles I have seen are quite tremendous and I decided on making a list of items that could possibly be a solution to some of these problems.

1. Problem: People complain about their love life in High School, going into complete drama mode, making so many terrible decisions.
1. Solution: If people don't want to deal with this kind of trouble, they shouldn't get started in the first place, personally I think it's a very irrational decision anyways.

2. Problem: People drop their many burdens off to the church that they go to.
2. Solution: The problems of others should not be just thrown at the church, that just causes more worries and burdens on other individuals, instead, they should seek help from maybe just a few individuals that deal with these troubles that can help them get through it in a more stress free way.

3. Problem: People who can't drive.
3. Solution: You should always follow the speed limit, and try not to go to far under it. If you are from Ohio, and you drive well, then this isn't for you, but Ohio drivers seem to be way too pokey when they drive, and that could cause wrecks, so stop it!

4. Problem: Girls at school that got pregnant and complain about it.
4. Solution: You shouldn't have gone that far in a relationship in the first place, in other words, refer to problem number 1.

5. Problem: People who think they are better than everyone else.
5. Solution: Get over yourself, there is going to always be somebody one step ahead of you, that person is God. Just be yourself, God likes you just the way you are.

6. Problem: People who think that God doesn't exist.
6. Solution: It's time for a reality check, the bible isn't a lie, and God isn't either, think about it, do you honestly think that you and me and this Earth just magically appeared from a massive explosion? For those who worship idols, it would take quite a bit more time to explain this topic, you should come to our church for some great information.

These are just a few problems that I have seen in my life so far, and I didn't feel like listing anymore, but these are pretty important topics, if people would just use these solutions, their lives might be a little better. God is always their to hear your troubles, pray about it, and have the faith to hold on.

He Ain't Heavy

I came upon this song, and I thought it reminded me a lot of my church, as we are all pretty close.

Read these lyrics carefully, they are very awesome words.


The road is long
with a many a winding turns
that leads us to who knows where,
who knows where.
But I'm strong,
strong enough to carry him.
He ain't heavy, he's my brother.

So on we go.
His welfare is of my concern.
No burden is he to bear,
we'll get there.
For I know
he would not encumber me.
He ain't heavy, he's my brother.

If I'm laden at all,
I'm laden with sadness
that everyone's heart
isn't filled with the gladness
of love for one another.

It's a long, long road
from which there is no return.
While we're on the way to there,
why not share?
And the load
doesn't weigh me down at all.
He ain't heavy, he's my brother.

He's my brother.
He ain't heavy, he's my brother...

We all have our opinions on life.

Two days ago, I was talking online with a person, and it was sort of a personal discussion, and usually personal discussions are dealt with differently than a normal chat, but this one ended up being a big war and had many disputes. This person tends to think that she is more in touch with the world than I do, she may have done more important things in life so far, but tearing my esteem and life apart by saying I don't know what life really is just takes someone like me to a whole other level of anger. People who think because they have done something big in their life are a lot more wise than me are at the biggest fault, to me that shows they have a lot of growing up to do(especially those who are only 2 or 3 years older than me), as everyone on this planet does, but these people especially. We all dwell on something that isn't positive sometimes, if we didn't then we wouldn't truly be human. Humans are inperfect beings, and everything isn't always smelling as pretty as a rose.
