Oh how things change.

As I get older and get closer to life actually starting, I see things that I can fall into easily. Either it's smoking, or drinking, sex, whatever. It is so easy to fall into sin. It's insane. I recently transferred from a private school to a public school and all of these things are at easy access for me. Now it's my choice if I decide to do these things or not but's tempting. Everyone is doing it and loving it, why not me?

"Happy is the man who doesn't give in and do wrong when he is tempted, for afterwards he will get as his reward the crown of life that God has promised those who love him." JAMES  1 VERSE 12 

See when you are getting ready to get yourself into the situation, things don't seem so complicated. Let's go smoke and have fun, sure why not? But we don't think of the consequences our actions could cause. 

"And remember, when someone wants to do wrong it is never God who is tempting him, for God never wants to do wrong and never tempts anyone else to do it. Temptation is the pull of man's own evil thoughts and wishes." JAMES 1 VERSES 13 & 14 

Sure, "We are young" blah blah blah. YOLO. Whatever. but let's say we just do it once, but then again next week, and week after that, and then it starts to every other day, then every day, and it gets to the point where you. can't. go. a. day. without it. What would that be like? I don't want to know. Your grades could start slipping, your friends could leave,  your parents would nag on you all the time. It just isn't worth it. Because in the long run would you rather have a successful life, or one you wasted in highschool. 
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

I've recently lost contact of friends that I never would have thought I would lose contact with. People I've known since the 3rd grade. People I've had sleepovers with, or shared secrets, and jokes. I've lost contact with them either because we now go to different schools or they moved or they are in a different crowd then I am... well anyway the other day I stumbled upon a friends twitter, and I saw that she smokes and does certain things I don't do. I sat at my computer and cried. I don't know what came across me but I just did. She is an awesome person, I don't understand what happened. She was one of the last people I would expect to do this type of thing. I then realized she fell into this habit because of the friends she had.. You know how your mom would always tell you to be careful who you hung out with because it showed who you truly were. Well..yeah it's true. Well anyway I guess that was the reason I felt so strongly to write this blog post.

Congres 2012

Remember how in my last post I typed a bit about a Nation French Competition I was getting ready to go to? Well I went and I got superior in both my competitions and my school placed 2nd! WOO. Tres excitant!

I am incredibly blessed. 
How great is Thy GOODness, which Thou hast stored up for those who fear Thee, which Thou hast wrought for those who take refuge in Thee, before the sons of men! (Psalms 31:19).

Hello new format!

Do you guys like my new theme? I do, and that's all that matter. hehe

SO, this week is going crazy. I have end of quarter exam in math and test in Chemistry, not to mention CONGRE is this WEEKEND! (In case you don't know what Congre is, it is Florida's National French Competition, holla!) Congre goes from Thursday afternoon to Saturday morning. I'm competing in two competitions and I'm so nervous, but I know God will help me get Superior in both competitions! 

Anyways, this past weekend I went to the Best Buddies Prom, holy moly guys, so much fun! Those guys can really dance. They are so sweet and so much fun. 

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."  Romans 8:28

Kony 2012

Hey friends. Writing a quick post today about something I came across today and that needs to be stopped big time. In case ya'll don't already know my heart is set on Africa, especially the Uganda area. But this, this is affecting All  of Africa. The organization called Invisible Children has been working to make the man named Joseph Kony famous. Not to praise him, but to show what he has been doing. For 26 years now he has been abducting young boys and girls and using the girls as sex slaves and the boys as young soldiers. RIDICULOUS. This man obviously needs to be stopped, and quick.
Check out this video on the full details:
Please ya'll, share this video. Post about it on Facebook,Twitter, Tumblr, Blogger, Pinterest. WHATEVER. Please help. 

Imagine if it was your (future) child. Just..imagine. 
No child should fear their own safety. 

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. Psalm 127:3-5

Give me the answer. 
Give me the way out.
 Give me the faith to believe in these hard times.

Some times just listening to good music can lift your spirits up so much. It's been really stressful around my life right now, friends. I have French state competitions around the corner, testing for the ACT, school work, online school work...outside school activities.. I'm not complaining friends, but sometimes things tend to get a little too much. 
"Even when the rain fallsEven when the flood starts risingEven when the storm comesI am washed by the water"

Hebrews 13:5 "I will never leave you nor forsake you." 

Boom, there's my reminder. God is always there for me, and you. Our God is a perfect God, He is one who keeps His promises when He says He will.
