Some Things I Have Learned This Summer

This summer, I felt the desire on my heart to host a Bible Study/discussion time. Every Tuesday, friends from my youth group came to my home, and we discussed different topics.

We learned how to trust God when we are afraid, that we don't have to worry what other people think about us because we are flawless through Jesus' sacrifice, to remember that we are held by God when we go through something tough in our lives, to show kindness and love to others like Jesus did, and to talk to and with God.

I will be posting a little bit from each session, and my prayer is that you will feel encouraged by these topics as I, and hopefully others, did. Hope you enjoy them!

P.S. Sorry I haven't posted for a long while! :/

Now that school is over, and summer is practically upon us, here is a reminder: try not to sit around, but instead go do something meaningful this summer. Make memories with family and friends and, most importantly, show God's love to those around you!

Jesus' Sacrifice

Easter is just around the corner. I have always enjoyed the chocolate and the cute bunny decorations, but Easter is most important to me because of what it really means.

On Good Friday (the Friday before Easter), we remember what Jesus did for us. He suffered TERRIBLE beatings, mockery, embarrassment, and SO much pain. After almost being beaten to the point of death, He had to hang on a cross by spikes in His wrists and in His feet.

 Jesus gave His life for us.

We are all sinners. (Romans 3:23) Each and every one of us. The Bible tells us that the punishment for sin is death.(Romans 6:23) But Jesus loves us so much that He took our punishment. (John 3:16) Jesus was perfect, holy, and lived a life without sin. When He hung on that cross, all of our sins from the past, present, and future were laid on Him. 

And because Jesus took on our punishment, we have a choice to repent of our sins and surrender our lives to Him. (I John 1:9) He wants us to be His children. He loves us. When you give your life to Jesus, you have accepted His great gift and can someday join Him in heaven and thank Him for His sacrifice face-to-face.

On Good Friday, Jesus gave His life. On Easter, He rose again. That is what I celebrate.

Video Address

I heard from a couple people that the video from my last post wasn't linked with the email form of my post. Here is the video address if you wanted to watch it.

Hi Friends!
I know it's been a while since I've posted, but you know how busy life can be. Okay, yes, I'm sorry, that's a lame excuse. I've been unsure about what to post next but I've found my topic. Today's post is about prayer.

How many times do you set something aside, take the time to sit down, and pray? I know that for me, it can be hard to sit down, be still, and pray. I find that sometimes I go through the motions as if it were a habit; for instance, before every meal, and so forth. When we do take the time to pray, what are we saying? Are we asking for things to be fixed? Are we asking for God to bless us? Are we talking and asking so much that we can't hear God's voice? If we don't take the time to praise him and be still, we can't hear His voice. Here is a video that demonstrates this topic.
