Yup. I was just having a bad day that one day. I really like being in school, despite that I don't get to see my friends a lot. :P But me being me, I'll work something out that won't completely kill me.
And Drama class is SO MUCH FUN!!! We play many games and I just wish some people would take this class seriously. Today though, after school my school theater club had a party for those in theater club. It was SO much fun. Do you guys remember Radical from Random Convos? If not, oh well. Well, she was with me and there was dancing competitions on the Wii, music, and APPLES TO APPLES! Gotta love the wacky fun times of Apples to Apples.
Oh! There was something I wanted to do....(((AND DON'T SKIP IT IF YOU'RE NOT A WUSS! Love, Icewolf. ;D)))
I've been doing my devotions and I found some neat stuff. Take a look: (all in the New Living Translation)
If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Well then you might say, "Why does God blame people for not responding? Haven't they simply done what he make them do do?
No, don't say that. Who are you, a mere human being, to argue with God? Should the thing that was created say to the one who created it, "Why have you made me like this?"
"For who can know the Lord's thoughts?
Who knows enough to give him advice?
And who has given Him so much
That He needs to pay it back?"
Okay, let me delve further.
Galatians: Words are eternal. As I go through the bible and read it constantly amazes me how this still can be applied in today's world and yet written LOOOONG ago. Basically he is saying 'pleasing people isn't the goal of being a Christan'. There are so many of us (myself included) that are out to please people. I live my life to make my friends happy, talking to the happily and truthfully. Now he isn't saying never please anyone, he's just saying that isn't what we should be concerned about all the time. The goal of Christ is to share His love with us faulty humans.
Romans 9: Again, this can be applied to today. How many times have us Christians heard, "Well, why is God condemning these people for their natures?" First of all, this ties in with Romans 11, which asks us how on earth can we know so much to challenge God's decisions. And the other part where the created asks "Why have you made me like this?" Let me say, God has a plan for your life, and He created you for that plan. The thing is, are you willing to choose that path?
My personal stand: I can preach this, but can I apply it? I have no idea. Deep down I'm scared of what he might have for me, and throwing out "Well God has a plan and He's in control" can seem all fine in dandy, but it doesn't get rid of my fear. I can't claim to be the perfect Christian, and even though I can throw a bunch of scripture in your face, what would it mean if I couldn't even apply it to myself? I'll pray that He'll show me His plan and hopefully I'll come to accept it.
God bless you all!
