Keeping God First in Your Life

Keeping God First in Your Life

Hi everyone! Today’s topic is keeping God first.

In today’s day in age, most everyone has a somewhat busy schedule. Sometimes it is hard to find time for God. However, we have to remember that God has to deal with all the problems of the universe, yet He still made time to send His Son to die for us. You might say, “Well He is God! He can do anything!” That is true, and that’s why we don’t have to deal with all the problems in the universe!!

To us, our problems and activities seem important. But when you take a look at the grand scheme of things, they are really just small unimportant things compared to God’s big plan. Now don’t misunderstand me. I’m not saying they are not important at all, it is just that there are many more important things that God has in His plan for you.

This might mean you have to give up some of the activities you do to make time for God. But not always. Just listen to what God has to say to you. And as always, keep God first in your life.

My grandmother once told me, “I don’t care how long you pray to God at night, just pray. Even if it is just a sentence. I don’t care how much you read your Bible at night, just read. Even if it is just a verse.” Now this certainly doesn’t mean that we should just read a verse or pray a quick sentence up to heaven all the time. But it does mean keep yourself in the Bible and pray to God every day.

I hope you girls enjoyed this! Have a wonderful day!

An Important Subject

An Important Subject

Hi, girls! I would like to talk to you about a very important subject today. The subject is judging people.

“Judge not, that ye be not judged.

 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?

 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.”

I bet your saying, “WOW.” I know, same. Let me break it down for you. First, “mote” means “speck”. Does that make more sense? And the “beam” is like a beam of wood. So it’s like me saying to my brother, “Let me get that speck out of your eye,” when I have a huge beam of wood sticking out of my eye! When you look at it that way, it makes you realize how blind we can be about our own sins.

Now let’s get to the point. Should we judge people? “Judge not, that ye be not judged.” So obviously, we shouldn’t judge. “But what if I see a brother or sister in Christ doing something wrong?” you say. Good question.  Remember when I said that it is so easy to be blind to your own sins? Well, that comes into play here. If we see a brother or sister in Christ doing something wrong, we should search deep inside ourselves for any sins we haven’t repented of. Once we repent of our sins, we should come alongside them lovingly and help them on the right path without criticizing or judging them. That way, we help them, and we make ourselves better too. But we can’t forget that the best thing to do in any situation is pray to God and trust in Him. 

I hope this helped you! Oh, and I can’t give all the credit to myself for this post. My Sunday school teacher taught me about this important lesson, and I would like to thank him. Bye!

Limiting Technology

Limiting Technology

First off, I’d like to say I’m sorry for not posting in so long. March and April were unbelievably busy. I will try to post more often from now on.

Technology can be time-consuming. Believe me, I know. Sometimes, you get on your computer and say to yourself, “I’m just going to check my email and get right back to work.” Well, checking your email leads to emailing your friends, which leads to more and more time spent on your laptop/phone/tablet, and less on your work.

  1. Finish your work first. When you have done that, you should be free to use technology as long as you want! (Depending on what your parents’ rules are)
  2. Respect your parents’ rules. If they say no phone in your room at night, don’t have your phone in your room at night. Both you and your parents will be much happier if your follow their rules.
  3. Set a timer. If you or your parents think you’ve been spending too much time with technology, agree on a time limit. For example, 30 min. each day.

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Going Through the Motions

going-through-the-motions

Sorry this is a few days late!

Discipline is important. Without it, you would never get anything accomplished. However, discipline by itself can sometimes be a bad thing. Are you just going through the motions of everyday life? Do you have no emotions or feelings or thoughts about what you do each day?

If you are just praying and reading your Bible because your mom told you to, or you want to impress someone, we could call that going through the motions. Doing what you are doing because you have to, or just checking things off your to-do list. It’s when you do something while not really believing in what you are doing. Not putting all your effort into it.

If this description matches you, try to stop and enjoy the everyday moments. Put all of your effort into everything you do. Worship God with everything you have in you. Love Him with all your heart. Going through the motions will make your life seem boring and not exciting. If you trust God and put everything you have into everything you do, you will see the true blessings God has given you. You can safely say you are not going through the motions. 🙂

Faith, Your Walk With God

Walking with God

walking-with-god

Have you ever felt like you’re not progressing in your walk with God? I know I have. Do you ever wonder if anything can be done about it? Well I have an answer for you. Don’t worry. God wants to be closer with you, and if that’s what you want too, He can make it happen.

Of course you’ll have to do your part as well. God wants you to really want it. If you work hard for it, it will mean a lot more to you than if you just sit back and expect God to do everything for you.

First thing to do : Pray. Ask God to help you grow in you walk with Him. Praying is underrated nowadays. It has much more of an effect than you would think. However, God doesn’t want you to ask for help one time and forget about it. He wants you to be persistent. He wants you to want it, and to ask, ask, ask. Here is one of Jesus’ parables showing that we need to ask and never give up.

Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart, saying, “In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and did not respect man. There was a widow in that city, and she kept coming to him, saying, ‘[a]Give me legal protection from my opponent.’ For a while he was unwilling; but afterward he said to himself, ‘Even though I do not fear God nor respect man, yet because this widow bothers me, I will [b]give her legal protection, otherwise by continually coming she will [c]wear me out.’”And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge *said; now, will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, [d]and will He delay long over them? I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [e]faith on the earth?”

Second thing to do: Make sure nothing is hindering you from progressing. It might be a love for material things, sin, or having too busy a schedule. Now I’m not saying loving something or someone other than God is wrong. Definitely not. God commands that we love our neighbors and enemies. I’m just saying that we should not love something or someone more than God.

Third thing to do: Read the Bible. I won’t go in-depth about this, since I have already in another post. I would like to say this though: the Bible will encourage you, teach you, and keep you from temptation.

Fourth and last thing to do: Get away. Spend some time alone with God. Find a special, private place inside or outside that you can talk with God in peace away from noisy siblings or TV’s. Lay all your troubles at his feet.

Alrighty! I think that’s all for now! I hope you will think about those things I said…and also have a great day!

The Bible

Reading and Memorizing the Bible

reading-and-memorizing-the-bible

Have you ever thought, “I wish I read my Bible more often”? Well, a lot of people say that to themselves, but very few people do anything about it.

Reading your Bible often is hard. It takes discipline. Set apart a certain time in your day reserved for reading the Bible. When I first started trying to read my Bible every night, it felt like a chore. It will probably feel like that to you when you first start. But read this carefully.

After you start reading for a while, you will love reading your Bible. You won’t want to stop! I hardly can stay away from my Bible anymore! It gives me so much comfort! I recommend looking at the very back of the Bible. Why? Because there usually is a section of pages (it depends on what Bible you have) where you can look up a subject that is in the Bible, and it will tell you the places in the Bible where you can find that subject. Or you can just start anywhere in the Bible and read. You can’t go wrong with reading the Bible. I usually have highlighters near me so I can highlight anything that stands out to me. It makes the verse much easier to find later.

OK, now on to the memorizing part of this post. Memorizing is much more helpful than you might think. I do Bible Quizzing, something where you memorize whole chapters in the Bible and compete on them. I am not saying you have to memorize whole chapters of the Bible. Take it slow. In your Bible reading, find a verse that stands out to you. A verse that you think will be the most helpful to you. Memorize it. Why is it important to memorize? It is important because those verses will come back to you. Right when you need them. They will help you when you are going through a tough time. Believe me, I have experienced it before. They will give you joy and peace when you are sad.

Remember, reading and memorizing your Bible is not supposed to be a chore. It is something you will love to do, and something you turn to in tough times.

Thanks for reading!

#1. Drink Hot Drinks

This always helps me keep warm in the winter. You could drink hot chocolate,                          warm cider, hot tea, coffee, or anything else warm.

#2. Layer Your Clothes

This really works, especially if you are going outside.

#5. Make Rice Heat Pockets

Heat Pockets really keep your hands warm and are easy to make. You just take some rice, sew it up in old fabric, and heat it in a microwave. You then can put it in your pockets, and stick your hands in.

I hope you girls liked these ideas! Stay warm!
