I'm Saved!

I have to tell you all about something.This June,my sister and I went to a Christian youth camp in Tennessee.I was really excited about it.I would get together with some of my friends,cousins,and meet new people.At one night service,a singing group from Penn View Bible Institute sang the song "Nail it to the Cross".It made me and lots of other kids just cry.They started to go to the altar.My sister went up too.I went to one of the benches up front,at the time to pray for my sister,but I started crying more about how my life had sin in it.My dad was there that night and he came up and prayed with me.When I got done,I testified.I felt so glad that Jesus forgave me.I still have a lot to learn and do,but God will help me.Almost every time I hear that song now,I cry.

In closing,I want everyone reading this to know,God can forgive all your sins and make you whole.You'll feel so much better.

♫ Song of praise

God has answered our prayers, he has healed Jonathan. And now he is safe in the arms of Jesus. I can see him now, looking at Jesus with his big smile, and knowing he is with Jesus. He is now in the best most optimal health ever. Praise God that Jonathan is healed. Alleluia what a Savior. And remember this! there will be times of sorrow and grief, and times of pain. And times of joy. But there is always JESUS!!!

Jonathan--With Jesus

Somewhere around 4:25 this morning, my brother Jonathan, who was to have his first birthday on Wednesday, passed away. Today was the day that all our friends and family were coming over to celebrate his 1 year milestone. But for whatever reason, God chose to bring him home. I am going to make a tribute to him on my personal blog soon. Please pray for our family, as this was completely unexpected.

In Christ,

Center Of Focus?

When you wake up in the morning, what's the first thing on your mind? School? That video game you stayed up late to play last night maybe? As the day progresses, what do your thoughts consist of? Are they, for the most part, centered on spiritual things, or are you still thinking about that new movie you want to see? These thoughts entered my head last night as I lay in bed thinking. I kind of talked to my brother about them and we both thought of something else too. How much time do you spend in God's Word a day? Ok, fine how about a week? You say, "Oh, I didn't have time," but you know in your heart that you chose not to make it your time. That is an excuse I say to myself way to often. When I'm getting ready for work in the morning, I always find time to update my Facebook and Twitter, but no, I don't have time to read a chapter or two in the Bible. Baloney!!!!!! I had plenty of time, I just didn't use it for that. It...wasn't important enough...I guess. That HAS GOT to change! How on earth do we expect to grow closer in our walk with Christ? Let me ask you something. You're best friend...why is he/she your best friend? You know a lot about that person don't you? You feel close to them too. The same goes with Christ. The Bible says "...If you draw nigh unto Him, He will draw nigh unto you...". So I encourage you...spend time in God's Word! These things have really convicted me and I'm determined to do them. God Bless!

In Christ,
