God has been active in my life ever since the beginning of this school year. I've gone to a new school, made new Christian friends, built the relationship between Him and me throughout the year. He's saved my life in many different ways. I was nearly trapped in a class that was killing my GPA, but he opened a path for me to drop the class. It was an amazing thing to see him help me survive this semester.

I was also in several near death experiences over the last 4 years. I was nearly in several wrecks, but no one hit us, and my family hasn't hit anyone. One incident took place at 6:45 in the morning. The person stopped before he hit me, and I'm...I'm overwhelmed with grattitude to him for saving me.

God gave me an awesome best friend! God has been working so miraculously in my life that I have cried when it happens and when I look at it! God has saved me from a horrible binding life of sin! I can't put everything down in one simple post, or in one conversation. All I can say is, thank you GOD! And that God is good all the time, even when we are in the desert places and trials, He is there to sustain us and bless us!!! God's Love is so amazing!

Nothing wrong with a little bit of creepiness to keep one on edge. Never too good to get too comfortable. Got to keep CONSTANTLY VIGILANT! Sorry, couldn't resist. I've been blessed with wonderful parents, who love me and allow me to love them back.

How has God worked in your life?


People think I’m strange when I say this, but I believe I was born partially retarded. Now, today, I’m a full blown college student with a 4.0, and I’m only seventeen. *Boast.*

My entire family hated me, even if they wont admit it. I caused a lot of troubles for them as a small child. My mother was married to a man that wasn’t my father when I was born. Because I had so many special needs I continued to cause extreme stress, financially, emotionally, and mentally for every in my family. When my mother remarried my step-father he was too young to handle a child like me.

He wasn’t a bad person, but he said and did horrible things to me. I eventually developed severe emotional problems. I lost any ability to socialize. I wet the bed until I was twelve years old. I constantly thought about suicide.

Yet, here I am. I’m happy now. I’ve learned to forgive myself of sin, and I no longer feel alone or hopeless. I’m my mother’s favorite son, and I maintained a horrible job for a full year. I only did this because God gave me strength. Keeping that job wound up doing wonders for my family. I’ve gone on my first mission trip, and helped pay the bills. It’s all thanks to God.

These are only the “major” things. There’ve been many little things God has done for, through, and to me throughout my life.

When I was a freshman in I high school I had a test in algebra. I didn’t have any idea what I was doing. I hadn’t studied and didn’t have the basic concept in my head. I had nothing whatsoever, no shadow of an idea how to solve the problems.

Yet, I prayed before I took the test. It came out a full one hundred. A perfect score! I was awestricken. I took another test and got a ninety eight. Naturally I took this for granted and thought I could get through the whole year on this…decided to be lazy, wound up getting a 13 on the next test… God helps us, but he expects us to work too!

Before I was really a Christian I went to church with my grandmother where I was saved and born again. I prayed in tongues, joyously, felt the love of the holy spirit. It was like an emotional explosion, and continued to be. I shed my crippling insecurity and grew spiritually.

Later, I went to have one of the church officials pray for me. (I struggled and struggle with perversion, which I guess is a typical obstacle for kids my age.) I’d spent years and years and years in Washington state and had only just moved to Oklahoma. I didn’t know this woman, and she didn’t know me. Yet, when she prayed for me she told me:

“You’re a very creative person, and God has plans for you to expand his kingdom creatively.”

Yes, I am immensely imaginative and intend to be a writer one day. I’m constantly inventing stories and ideas. It’s been that way since I was a small child. I love to use my imagination! This lady knew something personal about me, though we’d never met!

My family has become incredibly close. I’ve been able to make good, close friends! You can’t comprehend how big of a step that is for me! I was the kid everyone hated! The idiotic perverted weird creepy bully who constantly acted out and made a fool of himself for attention! A boy who went through his entire elementary and middle-school years without a single real friend!

Now, wherever I go I’m popular. I think God intends to use my newfound charisma to expand his kingdom, just like my creativity!

Actually, God -doesn’t- take from us what he’s given us. He’s not a liar or a thief. The reason people believe that is because a verse in the bible says, “God gives and takes away,” but if you read the context you find that God isn’t talking in that verse. A man named Joe, who is under attack from the devil, and grieving cries that out in depression and desperation.

God knows what he’s doing. He’s not going to take his gifts back! Imagine if he just snatched salvation back from us anytime we displeased him!

...I meant that quote in a personal way...but I don't want to go too much into the story since it wouldn't be appropriate. I have a cousin/best friend and a lot of issues happened that caused us to drift away from eachother and she ended up ruining her own life doing stupid stuff.(It was a crushing blow since we are the same age, related, and knew all of eachother's secrets)

Before I could get too involved in her personal issues her parents got involved and I can no longer see her anymore. The Lord provided me with an awesome person to grow up with and share my personal life with but when I thought I needed her the most and that she would need me the most we disapeared from eachother's lives.

All I can say is that the Lord gave and the Lord took away and blessed be His name because He ALWAYS has the best planned for me. I know that He has everything happen for a reason so even though the person that knew me the best is gone (maybe forever), I will always have my God who knows me more than anyone.

Job indeed cried out in desperation but in reality he was acknowledging the greatness of God and how much trust and faith he had in God to make everything work out in the end. Job was telling God that he would follow him throughout all the trials he faced and depend on God through thick and thin. In my own way I'm saying the same thing. I may not understand why some things are happening the way they are right now, but someday I'll understand God's plan for my life and thank Him because he has a greater plan for me than anything I could ever imagine!

My best friend may be gone, but God has already provided me with encouraging/Christian friends that popped up out of the blue when I needed them the most. I didn't see my new future coming but my God brought me what He knew I needed at the perfect timing.

I also Know that He brought my cousin to the right place at the right time as well. I can't say how thankful I am to the Lord for working in my life! A verse that I've been getting recently is

Zechariah 4:6
Not by might nor by power, but by my
Spirit, says the Lord.

The Lord keeps giving me this verse recently just to remind me not to worry and to trust completely in Him. But I'm kind of glad I could clarify and get that off my chest...sorry that this reply is sooooo long!
