Have you dedicated your life to Christ: YES and it was the GREATEST decision of my life
Name one reason why you Love Jesus((Please go into deeper detail)): First off, He died for me. Not only be but for the world. And I can never fathom that. He is so amazingly wonderful and I know I'm not worthy of all his many blessings. Everyday He gives me something new to be thankful for, and I love Him with absolutely every breath I take. To know that no matter what I do in life that He will love me all the same makes every step i take in this mundane world all so worth it because one day I will be with Him in Heaven.
Anything else you would like us to know about you: I'm a senior in high school and obviously a firm believer in Christ. I try my best to always attend church everytime the doors are open.

Hey Everyone.. I have another amazing song for God to tell you all about. It is by the band Tree63.. if you don't own at least one of their cd's, I suggest that you buy one they are unbelievable!!

I want to jump - I'm so scared
I want to swim - don't want to get wet
How do I get to You - what do I have to do?
I want to pray - I need sleep
Don't want to sow, I just want to reap
I know what You're going to say: there's something in the way
Will it ever end, this war inside me?

I'm just so glad
That when I can't, You can
And where I end
That's where You begin

I want to sing from my soul
I'm getting bored with rock 'n roll
All my childhood dreams, nothing but childish fantasies
Here I come - there I go
Maybe yes, possibly no
The Good Fight's a brawl - the winner gets it all
Bring it to and end, this war inside me

I'm just so glad
That when I can't, You can
And where I end
That's where You begin

Today hot, tomorrow cold
It's the oldest story that's ever been told
How do I get to You what do I have to do?
One day You'll end this war inside me

I'm just so glad
That when I can't, You can
And where I end
That's where You begin

I can relate to this song in sooooo many ways!! I know time and time again that I feel like I don't want to do the work to recieve the prize(don't want to sew just want to reap) And it is just SOOOOO amazing that God comes to us where we are as sinners and loves us. We don't need to be anything for God to begin in us. Okay this song is so hard to explain without you hearing it first... so download it, buy it, or just borrow it from me : )

I need to go do some of that fun homework stuff now! woohoo.. :/ haha

God Bless You all! <3Manda

Hey EVERYBODY I've been thinking of a memory verse lately.. John 3:16 I've said it to myself at least a million times before. But you know I've never really thought it through before..especially the first line.. "For God so loved the world" I don't understand how God can love the world.. I'm extremely thankful and blessed beyond belief that He does love everyone. But it's just so mind boggling to me. I COULD NEVER LOVE THIS WORLD... such horrible things happen all the time. So many people turn from God.. mock Him. I know Paul said he was the worst sinner.. but he never met me.. In my mind I am the worst of all. There is so much hate in this world, too much hate in this world. The other day I was watching the news.. and two about to be married youth leaders were both shot in the head on a public beach. This world is filled with so much evil.. God could easily just turn away and give up on us all, and no one could blame Him for doing so. Even though I myself and the whole world are so full of sin.. God loves us... HE SO Loved us.. He loved us, ENOUGH THAT HE SENT HIS SON JESUS CHRIST TO DIE AND SAVE us.... I desire to have to Love and Patience that God has, because I sometimes have trouble even loving my family and friends. Which is crazy.. because He loves people who hate Him.. God thankyou thankyou thankyou... I want to be just like you. Give me the strength to love the people of this world Lord, because you love me. God Bless You Guys <333 Manda

I have a prayer Request:

One of my friends is a homosexual. He has been really searching about it in the Bible lately and is becoming Bitter towards God about how God thinks that homosexuals are an abomination. We have had many a talk about this but it doesn't seem to be working.... So please just pray that as he is looking through the Bible to DISPROVE God; just pray that something in it just sparks out and draws him in. PLEASE!!! Thanks Guys.

Subject:Fill my cup to the top with running water

hey everybody.. SOULFEST WAS AMAZING! The bands we're amazing.. I love going there and seeing all these people who dedicate their everything to God.

There was this BEAUTIFUL river there... and it reminded me of Living Water

When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, "Will you give me a drink?" (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to him, "You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?" (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)
Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water."
"Sir," the woman said, "you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his flocks and herds?"
Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."

haha more to write in here.. putting this in because I'll be at soulfest the next couple of days.

I've been having a rough week, so God's been showing me a lot of mercy lately in kind little ways that make a huge difference for me. Thought I'd share some more lyrics that have been greatly speaking to my heart, and would probably benefit you also : )

This song is based on Isaiah 7:9b

Jesus, I stand for You
No matter what You lead me through
They will chase me out
And close me down
But Jesus, I'll stand for You

I'll always stand - I'll always stand
I'll always stand for you

Jesus, I've stood my ground
When unbelief was all around
I have felt the sting
Rejection brings
But Jesus, I'll still stand for You  

A time will come
When everyone
Will turn their eyes
On the Risen Son
But until that day, this world will turn away
And so I take Your hand - I'll always stand for You

Guilty of disgrace
But You took my place
So Jesus, I'll always stand for You


GOD IS SO GOOD, I will always stand for Him.. even though the world is turned away for now.. because To Live is Christ and To Die is Gain.. haha alright now I have to go and pack lol.. LATER God Bless <33 Manda

Subject:Just Something Interesting....
Mood: curious

Well i Was just doing some reading in Proverbs. Here are just some of the verses of proverbs 12 that REALLY stuck out at me *grin*

1 do not be sore at those who give good criticism

6 If you speak of wicked things...you have basecly just set up your "death" and are now just awaited for the day- Those who speak of good things will be rescued from their dreadful fate.

11 If you work for something yo uwill get it abundantely- But he who dreams up his life and just sits there wishing thor his "treasures". Therefor Lacks judgment.

12 The wicked desire the plunder of evil men, but the root of the righteous flourishes.
((I love that verse, It is amazing))
I did Alot of looking into verse 9 but i was really confused on it... I will post it and see if you can help me out in any way.

9 Better to be a nobody and yet have a servant, than pretend to be somebody and have no food.

((that verse is just so simple its complicated, you know?))

hey again everyone.. I have some more great stuff to add in here : )

God is Good (all the time!!!!)

I was reading through philippians today and there are some verses that really spoke to my heart, so i thought I would share them with you all.

Sorry this is going to be so long.. but haha it is the whole book.

Philippians 1

1   Paul and Timothy, bond-servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons:
2   Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
3   I thank my God in all my remembrance of you,
4   always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you all,
5   in view of your participation in the gospel from the first day until now.
6   For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
7   For it is only right for me to feel this way about you all, because I have you in my heart, since both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, you all are partakers of grace with me.
8   For God is my witness, how I long for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus.
9   And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment,
10   so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ;
11   having been filled with the fruit of righteousness which comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.

The Gospel Is Preached

12   Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the gospel,
13   so that my imprisonment in the cause of Christ has become well known throughout the whole praetorian guard and to everyone else,
14   and that most of the brethren, trusting in the Lord because of my imprisonment, have far more courage to speak the word of God without fear.
15   Some, to be sure, are preaching Christ even from envy and strife, but some also from good will;
16   the latter do it out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel;
17   the former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition rather than from pure motives, thinking to cause me distress in my imprisonment.
18   What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed; and in this I rejoice. Yes, and I will rejoice,
19   for I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayers and the provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
20   according to my earnest expectation and hope, that I will not be put to shame in anything, but that with all boldness, Christ will even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.

To Live Is Christ

21   For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
22   But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose.
23   But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better;
24   yet to remain on in the flesh is more necessary for your sake.
25   Convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy in the faith,
26   so that your proud confidence in me may abound in Christ Jesus through my coming to you again.
27   Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
28   in no way alarmed by your opponents--which is a sign of destruction for them, but of salvation for you, and that too, from God.
29   For to you it has been granted for Christ's sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,
30   experiencing the same conflict which you saw in me, and now hear to be in me.

Philippians 2

Be Like Christ

1   Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion,
2   make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.
3   Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves;
4   do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.
5   Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus,
6   who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped,
7   but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.
8   Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
9   For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,
10   so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11   and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
12   So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling;
13   for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.
14   Do all things without grumbling or disputing;
15   so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world,
16   holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain.
17   But even if I am being poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I rejoice and share my joy with you all.
18   You too, I urge you, rejoice in the same way and share your joy with me.

Timothy and Epaphroditus

19   But I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you shortly, so that I also may be encouraged when I learn of your condition.
20   For I have no one else of kindred spirit who will genuinely be concerned for your welfare.
21   For they all seek after their own interests, not those of Christ Jesus.
22   But you know of his proven worth, that he served with me in the furtherance of the gospel like a child serving his father.
23   Therefore I hope to send him immediately, as soon as I see how things go with me;
24   and I trust in the Lord that I myself also will be coming shortly.
25   But I thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus, my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, who is also your messenger and minister to my need;
26   because he was longing for you all and was distressed because you had heard that he was sick.
27   For indeed he was sick to the point of death, but God had mercy on him, and not on him only but also on me, so that I would not have sorrow upon sorrow.
28   Therefore I have sent him all the more eagerly so that when you see him again you may rejoice and I may be less concerned about you.
29   Receive him then in the Lord with all joy, and hold men like him in high regard;
30   because he came close to death for the work of Christ, risking his life to complete what was deficient in your service to me.

Philippians 3

The Goal of Life

1   Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things again is no trouble to me, and it is a safeguard for you.
2   Beware of the dogs, beware of the evil workers, beware of the false circumcision;
3   for we are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh,
4   although I myself might have confidence even in the flesh. If anyone else has a mind to put confidence in the flesh, I far more:
5   circumcised the eighth day, of the nation of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; as to the Law, a Pharisee;
6   as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; as to the righteousness which is in the Law, found blameless.
7   But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ.
8   More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ,
9   and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith,
10   that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death;
11   in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
12   Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
13   Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,
14   I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
15   Let us therefore, as many as are perfect, have this attitude; and if in anything you have a different attitude, God will reveal that also to you;
16   however, let us keep living by that same standard to which we have attained.
17   Brethren, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us.
18   For many walk, of whom I often told you, and now tell you even weeping, that they are enemies of the cross of Christ,
19   whose end is destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is in their shame, who set their minds on earthly things.
20   For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;
21   who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself.

Philippians 4

Think of Excellence

1   Therefore, my beloved brethren whom I long to see, my joy and crown, in this way stand firm in the Lord, my beloved.
2   I urge Euodia and I urge Syntyche to live in harmony in the Lord.
3   Indeed, true companion, I ask you also to help these women who have shared my struggle in the cause of the gospel, together with Clement also and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.
4   Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!
5   Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near.
6   Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
7   And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8   Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
9   The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

God's Provisions

10   But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at last you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned before, but you lacked opportunity.
11   Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.
12   I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need.
13   I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.

14   Nevertheless, you have done well to share with me in my affliction.
15   You yourselves also know, Philippians, that at the first preaching of the gospel, after I left Macedonia, no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving but you alone;
16   for even in Thessalonica you sent a gift more than once for my needs.
17   Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account.
18   But I have received everything in full and have an abundance; I am amply supplied, having received from Epaphroditus what you have sent, a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God.
19   And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
20   Now to our God and Father be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
21   Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren who are with me greet you.
22   All the saints greet you, especially those of Caesar's household.
23   The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.


God Bless You Always!

God is so Good :)

Here are some lyrics I've been listening to a lot. They're very encouraging.. I know I forget sometimes that we're not of this world, and that we're supposed to be different.. and people should even think the way we act is strange.

It was a beautiful letdown
when I crashed and burned
when I found myself alone, unknown and hurt
it was a beautiful letdown
the day I knew
that all the riches this world had to offer me
would never do

In a world full of bitter pain and bitter doubt
I was trying so hard to fit in, fit in,
until I found out
I don't belong here
I don't belong here
I will carry a cross and a song
where I don't belong

It was a beautiful letdown
when you found me here
yeah for once in a rare blue moon
I see everything clear

I'll be a beautiful letdown
thats what I'll forever be
and though it may cost my soul
I'll sing for free
we're still chasing our tails in the rising sun
in our dark water planet still spins in a race
where no one wins and no one's one

see I don't belong here
I don't belong here
I will carry a cross and a song
where I don't belong
I don't belong here
I don't belong here
I'm gonna set sight and set sail for the kingdom come
kingdom come
Your kingdom come
won't you let me down yeah
let my foolish pride
forever let me down

easy living, you're not much like your name
easy dying, hey you look just about the same
would you please take me off your list
easy living, please come on and let me down

we are a beautiful letdown,
painfully uncool,
the church of the drop outs, the losers, the sinners,
the failures, and the fools
oh what a beautiful letdown
are we salt in the wound
and let us sing one true tune

I don't belong here
I don't belong here
I don't belong here
Feels like I don't belong here

Would you let me down
Come on and let me down
You always let me down
So glad that I'm let down

Come on and let me down
Because I don't belong to you
Won't you let me down?

Have you dedicated your life to Christ: yes, last year
Name one reason why you Love Jesus((Please go into deeper detail)): I don't know where I would be without Jesus. My upbringing was a little rough and I definitely was far away from the Lord. But I eventually found Him and He accepted me with open arms and held me close. I know for a fact that I'm not sure where I would be if it wouldn't have been for Him. He's my everything. :)

ALSO: i'm leaving for vacation tonight and won't be back for 3 weeks, so if you guys don't hear from me then it's not because I'm not active, it's because I can't get near a computer! :) When I get back I'll post a submission for some graphics we can use to promote! I design graphics for people and their websites anyways, so I thought "Why not make some for this group?" so, I hope to get more involved when I get back and to get to know some of you guys! :) ttyl!
