10:27 pm - Hold me in you arms...
God... this life it makes me wonder, sometimes, why you created love between a man and a woman. Now i don't mean like why you chose men to like women or women to like men, no but in general. Why did you make this kind of love. Perhaps you understood the lonlieness of a woman, and the need for companionship of a man. Though i think that if you knew it would be this bad, with girls being with any guy so they don't feel lonly and men lusting like nuts, i think that if you had known that love would have become this tainted perhaps you wouldn't have made it. though i am glad that you made it; it creates a dream in the mind yet at the same time it haunts the soul when wonderful people never see it fullfiled.
I try to deni it i really do. I always put this face on for everyone that i don't really want it. But i do. I want that earthly love, and i want it with someone perfect; chosen perfectly by you. And if i have to wait 5 6 maybe even 30 years than hey i'll do it. God i'll make a promise with you, i promise to never date a guy unless i could see my living the rest of my life with him, and living in a relationship centered around you. now that doesn't mean that if i date a guy that i have to marry him it just means that it has to be a person that i could truthfully see living the rest of this life with. With both his good a bad parts. Thats my promise God...amen

07:02 pm - Isaiah 53:4-7
4 But he took our suffering on him and felt our pain for us. We saw his suffering and thought God was punishing him 5 But he was pierced for our transgression he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.6 We all like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.7 He was oppressed an afflicted yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb before the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shears is silent, so he did not open his mouth
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him... wow
by his wounds we are healed
Lord i leave my fears behind and give myself to you; you made me how i am for a reason and though i may not always like myself i know you love me and you think i'm beautiful. let satan not have a way with me lord let me learn to love myself and not hate the person i see in the mirror.
"I'm captured by your holy calling set me apart i know your drawing me to yourself leard me lord i pray"

10:48 pm - Not Good Enough For Anyone
God? Jesus? Savior? Jahova?
Lord oh I beg please stop the wretched thougths that Satan has layed on my mind!!!
I realize now that i'll never be good enough for anyone!!
NOT even for myself

If i can't love myself then who will
Jesus you love me
I know it's true
but it's so hard for me to see when i hate me
your the only one who loves me for all that i am
and even though the darkness has been covering me
I know your struggling to help me break free
but i hate who i am

Lord free me from my selfish thoughts
free me from my obsession with my looks
i hate myself Lord PLEASE FREE ME LORD BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO LIVE THIS WAY ANYMORE

but Lord i know now what i didn't before
For it's only in your will that i am free
for it's only in your will that i am FREE

10:51 am - Words of Wisdom
Powerful Statement Here:
Finally, The Truth on National TV, Billy Graham's daughter was
interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her "How could God let
something like this happen?" regarding 9-11-01... And Anne Graham
gave an extremely profound and insightful response.
She said "I believe that God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are,
but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of
our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman that He is, I believe that He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us
His blessing and His protection if we demand that He leave us alone?"
In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.
Let's see, I think it started when Madeline Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her
body was found recently) complained she didn't want any prayer in
our schools, and we said OK.
Then, someone said you better not read the Bible in school...
that says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said, OK.
Then, Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they
misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might
damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). And we said, an
expert should know what he's talking about so we said OK.
Then, someone said teachers and principals better not discipline our
children when they misbehave. And the school administrators said no faculty
member in this school better touch a student when they misbehave because we
don't want any bad publicity, and we surely don't want to be sued (There's
big difference between disciplining and touching, beating, smacking, humiliating, kicking, etc.). And we said, OK.
Then someone said, let's let our daughters have abortions if they want, and
they won't even have to tell their parents. And we said, OK.
Then some wise school board member said, since boys will be
boys and they're going to do it anyway, let's give our sons all the condoms
they want, so they can have all the fun they desire, and we won't have to
tell their parents they got them at school. And we said, OK.
Then some of our top elected officials said it doesn't matter what we do in
private as long as we do our jobs. And agreeing with them, we said it doesn't
matter to me what anyone, including the President, does in private
as long as I have a job and the economy is good.
And then someone said let's print magazines with pictures of nude women and
call it wholesome, down-to-earth appreciation for the beauty of the female body. And we said, OK.
And then someone else took that appreciation a step further and published
pictures of nude children and then stepped further still by making them available on the Internet. And we said OK, they're entitled to their free speech.
And then the entertainment industry said, let's make TV shows and movies
that promote profanity, violence, and illicit sex. And let's record music
that encourages rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and satanic themes. And we said
its just entertainment, it has no adverse effect, and nobody takes it seriously anyway, so go right ahead.
Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they
don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.
Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out.
I think it has a great deal to do with "WE REAP WHAT WE SOW."
Why didn't you save the little girl killed in her classroom?
Sincerely, Concerned Student
... AND THE REPLY
Dear Concerned Student,
I am not allowed in schools.
Funny, how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.
Funny, how everyone wants to go to heaven provided they do not
have to believe, think, say, or do anything the Bible says.
Funny, how someone can say, "I believe in God" but still follow Satan who, by the way, also "believes" in God.
Funny, how we are quick to judge, but not to be judged.
Funny, how you can send a thousand 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.
Funny, how the lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene pass freely through cyberspace, but the public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
Funny, how someone can be so fired up for Christ on Sunday, but be an invisible Christian the rest of the week. Are you laughing?
Funny, how when you go to forward this message, you will not send it to all
the people on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it to them.
Funny, how I can be more worried about what other people think of me than what God thinks of me.
Are you thinking? Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then
just discard it....no one will know that you did. But, if you discard this thought process, then don't sit back and complain about what a bad shape the world is in.
!~#*This was an e-mail i recieved the other day and I didn't have many people on my adress list so i thought that it was vital for me to post it here under my Live Journal and i'm sorry that it takes up so much room but it was too important to me to shrink up and for most to disregard I hope it has inspired you as it has me and I hope that you choose to share it with others*#~!

07:41 pm - Dear God
I know this confusion all too well.
and I know this is meant to be
but that makes it no more easy
I feel bound by this world
and I feel you wanting for me to break free...
but i'm just in so deep
But when I think of you Jesus
you were beat
you were bruised
you were abandoned
you were forgotten with all that good that you did
Through hard times and good through pain and suffering you stood
and Oh Jesus you forgave!
Yet look at me
How is it possible for me to ever be like you?
I worry about all i do
and this is when i try
Lord free me from the judgement of this world
make me not worry anymore
why do i care what they think
if your with me who's against me
If your lost don't fear to look
Because his eyes are always watching
and he wants to hold you during you pain
He's always been waiting for you
Just open the door and be free
Because he is the savior that will never leave!
If you want to see the face of Jesus, then you need to go to His feet.
You've been holding you treasure back for too long, it's time to give
it ALL to the One who truly deservers it
"He alone knows the worries that can be lifted off of you at that
moment and the fears and axiety that will be erased when you hear
him say "I accept you"
If he hears the cries of brokenes, he will abandon everything to come to you

09:00 pm - Some survey
May. 6th, 2005
09:30 pm - A thoughtful hope
What did you mean?
Why did you say those things?
Were your words false
or do they hold a truth?
If you did this to appease those around you
I beg you please don't pull my chain.
My love for you will never end
and i'll always want ot spend time with you
but i have my own life too.
Just remember the truth
and don't lie anymore.
