SEARCH!!!! [Jan. 8th, 2006|09:23 pm]
Jesus found me when i wasnt looking...

[mood |indescribableindescribable]
[music |Be My Escape]


i just got back from the SEARCH retreat...it was soo amazing about how everyone was soo open with everyone else and how we all just seemed like one big giant family even though we only saw each other for 3 days!...it only seems like one...Be My Escape by Relient K was our theme song and we named the weekend Relient J(Relient Jesus--we decided to shorten it)

we got 11 amazing talks and everyone could relate to at least one...we had a candlelight service and learned that people were praying for us since friday afternoon until sunday evening...we got to see them which was soo kool...we also learned that since the team had their first meeting they started to pray for us and that was in sept...i cant believe how much i had fun...their wasnt a huge structure to the weekend but it gave us a chance to talk and open up to people we knew that we could trust...it was the most amazing experience i have ever had...everyone was soo nice and fun to be around...i cant wait for the reunoin when we get to see each other again jan 27...its going to be soo much fun...i really want to be on SEARCH...we gave up something to God for the weekend and when He gives it back its going to be much better...we also nailed one of our sins on this huge cross we had...im soo sad that i have to be back on regular time...there we were on God's time(no hours, minutes, and seconds)...it really was amazing

well im going to stop now

Always believe in Him, you never know when you will need Him the most!

ah i thought this was kinda kooli! =D

ok so last night i put up my away message and i got ready for bed...it was like 11 and i was dead tired so i lied down and closed my eyes...i was trying to fall asleep but i just suddenly thought of the Bible.
im like...hm i havent read it in a while...o well i will tomarrow
so i keep trying to fall asleep and theres this little voice in my head (i know i know big shocker there! lol) and its like urging me to go and read from it. and im like pretty much talking to myself inside my head:
Head: "Go read a little from the Bible."
Steph-mini-me inside head: "grr No, I'm really tired."
Head: "Just go read one chapter."
Steph-mini-me inside head: "SLEEP!"
Head: "Wake up and read from it."
Steph-mini-me inside head: "but-but-but......"

ok so i finally gave in to well...myself...haha and i started flipping through it trying to find a good one to read...and i went to this one chapter that im not sure but i think Carla told me to read a month or so ago when i was like grred...
so i had one of those cute little pink post-it flags in the spot and im like ok ill read this cause it sounds familiar...and if its flagged it must be good
i dont really remember what it was...
but like i started reading it and i realized that it wasnt familiar whatsoever...and im like wait ive never read this before...weird o well
so i kept reading and it was so kool...like this weekend i was like grred with my mom and she was all mad at me and stuff like that...but it was like perfect it was like accept others and stuff like brothers
ah it was just so kool
byz for now GB! =D

ah i just thought of something else...

this also irks me...
i was watching america's funniest home videos like a month or so ago and my mom and brother were watching the end of it ... where they always have the 3 videos that were the funniest and they have to vote for which one they want to win...and this episode was like the grand prize of all the people who already won and now they were going to go to win like $100,000...
so this family wins and they always talk to the winning family afterwards...and they showed it and the mom was like well im just so grateful...i know that God brought us here and stuff like that...and my brother was just like omg i hate when people say that...and like grr irks me!!!!

ok haha...im done now

o0o wait...haha
me lindsey and ashley were talking the other day and we were saying like its so stupid like people get mad when people celebrate christmas and they dont...like people who celebrate hanukah or whatever...(some, not all, but some) they get all like touchy and are like annoying about it
and like we were saying that we dont get mad or judge anyone else that celebrates anything different...and like its fine to say happy hanukah or happy kwanza or anything...but then you say merry Christmas and people get so touchy about it...i just think its so stupid...
poeple should be allowed to celebrate what they want and express themselves and be proud of it instead of being like penelized for it...grrness

ok im done now

Hey im Cindy
I <3 Jesus sooo much!!!!!
Hes amazing...I first really felt Him hugging me was when i had the fire(that was a long time ago...we are back in our house now)

It was really kool at Adoration...it felt like Jesus was trying to pull me onto His lap... and then at the end it felt like He just wanted me to stay with Him and tell Him all of the problems going on in my life...I couldn't move at all...it was soo cool

Always believe in Him, you never know when you will need Him the most!

mwahaha! well...
Jesus saved me in more reasons that i have the patience to list...
but (this is Steph again on a different username by the way)...yea just one thing to say:

no matter what struggles you go through in your life...Jesus will ALWAYS be there for you
in the darkest corners,
the blackest night,
He will be the flame of the candle...
He will never go out and leave you there in the dark
He loves you!
He will always be there carrying you through life
when you are struggling...
Even though you don't see Him,
Doesn't mean He isn't there <3

Jesus reached out to me! [Dec. 7th, 2005|11:13 pm]

[mood |touchedtouched]
[music |I Have Been There]

so yesterday i was just fed up...with everything...i mean, i never get a break! whether its in my head or skin...and when i am soo strong in my faith that pain has no meaning to me, it hits my friends! and i have come such a long way to give up Jesus...but i just...cant take this forever...and i was just soo stressed over everything, and i wondered if everything would be okay, and if Jesus was really there at all anymore, and if He was, why would he let us suffer like this??

and i dont even knwo when...but i fell asleep...and woke up like 12 hours later at 6...i went back to bed cuz i didnt go to skool (my neck was hurting really bad, and i just wanted to relax) and...i woke up again later at around 11, and i was having breakfast...when i just remembered something...i dont remember when...but there were these...hands, that were like...perfect...they were smooth, and soft, and sorta rubbery, like it wasnt real...and i couldnt remember if it was a dream, or not, and where it was, or when...but it seemed like it was...somewhere else...not here...

and thinking about it...i just feel safe, and happy, and peaceful...like everything will be okay...
and i just know that those hands were Jesus....oh my gosh! i touched the hands of my savior! my...broken...nail-bitten fingers....they...wowowowow......

and when i woke up....my neck was soo much better...not healed, but better...ooooo my goshhh!!!! Jesus is always there!!!! like...i can...feel Him! oooo goshhhh that is crazyyyyy.....i felt the hand of grace!!!!! <333333333333333333333333333333333333 ..hee hee
