Just came home from church. I am repeating a wonderful message that I heard in youth group. The title kinda says it all, you are God's perfect Christmas tree! There are 5 ways that explain this thought. No.1 You need to be straight. God says that when you do the things He tells you, He will make you path straight. No.2 God says stand tall when you are going against people who hate you, and that He will help you. No.3 God prunes your sin, and makes you bear lots of fruit. No.4 God makes every person unique in ways, like looks, internal thoughts, personal traits, and different personalities. No.5 God "Decorated" (made) you the way He wanted to, and has a personal relationship with you.
Remember these things as we get into the holiday spirit and share this with people that you know.
Today's post is going to be about Speaking Up about God!
Speaking up about God is an important thing for so many reasons, but some of us just don't do it enough including me. I have been thinking for a while how you and I could do that and I have come up a lot of things: Say if you are a kid or a college student and you are getting bullied and they are saying you are stupid or a smartypants and other stuff like that, don't be afraid to say something like this because God appreciates it: "I am not stupid," or "I am not a smartypants and even if I am God created me and He wanted me to be the way I am!" There are so many ways you can speak up like the example I just gave you or you just talk about God to a nonbeliever. How ever you can SPEAK UP! It is important!
I am a normal 11 year old kid... well, half normal anyway. I'm an only child. I like basketball and I want to learn to play the drums. I HAVE been to Disney World (AWESOME!), summer camp, the beach, water parks, amusement parks, movie theaters (duh), and Las Vegas & Washington D.C. (to visit my grandparents). I can make homemade ice cream and pancakes with no adult supervision. Every once in awhile I have a thought about the Bible that my parents think is pretty cool. You'll find those here.
