Weekly Verse

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness light has dawned. Isaiah 9:2

Isn't God just WONDERFUL? Just look outside at the world around you, think about all the GOOD in your life and most importantly think about why and when you have been happiest. In my life and my opinion, I have always been happiest when I have God! He makes me feel ALIVE! Not only do I feel alive, but because I have accepted Jesus, I AM ALIVE in Christ!

I absolutely adore this song! Doesn't it just make you want to get up and dance and sing? Well, it does for me! Besides, it talks about something that is SUPER important... the fact that because Jesus died for us, we can be truly ALIVE--It's amazing, isn't it? The fact that someone would love us that much just blows my mind! Then on top of all of that, God watches out for us, AND He fills us with JOY, LOVE, and PEACE.
If you aren't ALIVE in Jesus and you have nothing to live for, and no cause to work for, what's the point? Because God gives us the chance to come ALIVE, we should be more than thankful! He gives us a purpose and a plan. He will never leave us. God has shown me how truly PHENOMENAL life can be! And I just want to share it with the world!
I think that we should all take the time to thank God... after all, He gives us LOVE, JOY, A PURPOSE, and He makes us ALIVE! What could be greater than that?


  1. I'm not sure I understand. Are you saying that without God, life has no point? Or am I simply reading the post wrong? I believe in Mother Earth. Yet, I do not rely on her for strength or for a purpose. Life is it's own purpose. Living just to live. I don't need to have a cause to live for. I don't need anything to live for. I just live. Life is a beautiful thing. It doesn't need a point, purpose, or meaning. It just is. And that, my friend, is what makes it beautiful.

  2. I think it's great that you enjoy life and see it's beauty, I like to think that I do the same. However, in my opinion, living only that way is simply living for yourself. I try to have a positive outlook on life, while still living to SERVE others! God gives rhyme and reason to my hectic crazy life.

    Plus, with God, I know where I'm going when I die. If I didn't have God, I would have nothing to live or work for. I want to do more than just enjoy myself. I want to make a DIFFERENCE. For that reason, God gives my life--and other people who feel the same-- a point! Without Him, I would feel useless.... I wouldn't know why I'm here or what my purpose is. I hope that makes sense...

    This is just my opinion, and you are entitled to have a different opinion, of course. So I hope you won't take anything I say as offensive. :)

    1. By no means is anything you said offensive. I like how you are non-confrontational. I'm not saying I don't like to help others. That goes along with me loving life. Helping others is one of the greatest things. It makes me feel alive, like I matter. I know I don't matter in the big picture. Helping makes me feel like I do. It's a good feeling. I don't mind not mattering.

      As for knowing where we go when we die, I don't really care. If Christians are right, I don't believe your God will punish me for not believing in him. He is described as merciful. I live well, I don't do bad things, I think I'm set on that front. If the Buddhists are correct, then I will be reincarnated, along with Hinduism. If the Shinto are correct, I'm still set. If Nihilists are correct, I won't care. I find that the best way for me to live is to live for the moment. If you're not enjoying yourself, why continue what you're doing? I hated my job. I quit. I hated college. I quit. I have a new job that I really like, and I get paid well. It balances out. And I wouldn't have gotten here if I didn't live for the moment.

      As for a purpose, I don't need a purpose. I am here, and that is all that matters.

    2. Again, it's GREAT that you love life and you enjoy helping people. I think that your outlook on those apsects is awesome.

      There is one think that we have a difference of opinion on-- I think you DO MATTER. I believe that each and every one of us is important in our own way, and that each of us was put here for a specific purpose. God shows us that purpose. He has a specific plan and path set out for each of us!

      I went through a stage in my life were God really wasn't a priority, and that was the most depressed I've been in my entire life. I thought I didn't matter, I was just one person in a billion, that I had no REAL purpose, but God gives me joy, peace, and a purpose. If you have those without God, that's great for you, but I believe that those truly come from God and that He gives greater meaning to life than just living it.

      Besides, it's WONDERFUL having someone you can always count on... men fail, but God prevails--FOREVER.

      P.S. Thank you for your comments, I think it's very important to see the different views that people have on life :)
