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."
"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.
"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!
