Only love

After a heart-break, what is the only thing that would cause you to keep going back? I guess only love. Real life situation: You're friend ask you why you still like a guy, even when there's obviously been a heartache. Reason? None. You just do like them.

Now, imagine this: You reject God, over and over again. But He still loves you. Always. Now, I've been meaning to do this for a while, because I realized all I ever talk about on this blog is myself. So, pushing past me, I'm going to talk about the one person who can change a life in a heartbeat. And no, he's not Doctor Who.

And I bet you can guess the answer.

So I've had my own bible for about 3 years now, and every time I come across a verse that really strikes me, I mark it with a bit of paper. I'll write down the verses, and if it's a passage, then I'll comment, but for the most part, I'll let you guys take it in your own way.

Onwards, shall we:
Oops, this was before I wrote the verse on the paper. :P I guess I put it there for the passage that i have in my bible. (Along the sides, there's extra stuff for teens) It talks about a person, asking God why their life sucks. He asked why was his life turning this way?

Does it matter, God replied.

I know I've said this a thousand times, but God has a plan. And he is SO much smarter than anyone in the entire universe. Does it matter that things don't go they way you planned?

*reads on* It also says that God's generosity is something to be cherished, not to be taken granted for. That's something I think we all do.

Ah, here we go. 2 Samuel 14:14b
"But God does not sweep away life; instead, he devises ways to bring us back when we have been separated from him."

Psalm 89: 33-34
"But I will never stop loving him
nor fail to keep my promise to him
No, I will not break my covenant;
I will not take back a single word I said." (Isn't that a great one for weddings?!)

Proverbs 4:24 (this one really hits me home, going through school and all)
"Avoid all perverse talk;
stay away from corrupt speech."

Respect your elders, Proverbs 16:31
"Gray hair is a crown of glory;
it is gained by living a godly life."

Proverbs 30:18-19
"There are three things that amaze me-
no, four things that I don't understand:
how an eagle glides through the sky,
how a snake slithers on a rock,
how a ship navigates the ocean,
how a man loves a woman."

Oh, *laughs* Did they ever tell you this at school? I had it taped in golden paper on my desk, and was surprised to see it in the bible cause I saw it at school first.
Matthew 7:12
"Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you."
It's titled "The Golden Rule"

And that's all for today. Hope you liked it!
