i was at church one day, and this lady was preaching, i found this story very touching.

woman begins: "one day i was taking the train home with younger sister. We took a seat near the back and waited for the rest of the passengers to board, suddenly two drunken men take the seats directly in front of us. Fury built up in side of me, i could not understand how these two men could possibly show themselves in this ugly form(drunkneness) there were women and young children on this train, it was disgraceful. I started to feel uncomfortable so i took my sister and we moved up to the front of the carriage, we sat down once more. My sister looked sad.
"What's wrong?" i asked her.
"Why did we move?" she asked.
"Because of those drunken men." I replied
"What?! that's not right! God loves us all! If we're rich or poor, skinny or fat, unitelligent or clever, or drunk or sober! These men are loved by the Lord as much as the Lord loves you! You can't do anything to make the Lord love these men less! We should love them too!"
I suddenly realised, that my 12 year old sister was right.
Even though we didn't move back, i realised something new:
Our Lord's love, will never cease. No matter what we do. I always had thought if we sinned, The Lord won't like us as much, but i was wrong, and how wrong i was. God will always be their for us, protecting us, guiding us loving us."

that's probably one of the most touching preaches i've heard in my life so far,

amen to that.

Most people don't realise what God says, He really means it. Secretly, they rank people in their heads based according to their appearances, the way they carry themselves, and their speech. It's the nature of man to be judgemental because they're selfishly thinking that they themselves are better. Or some think they don't qualify because they haven't done this and that.

God loves us. Love and acceptance are together. End of story. Nothing you can do is going to change that. He loves us when we're obedient because we love Him. Even when we are not obedient, He doesn't love us less, but of course it hurts our Father. But He Still loves us.It doesn't mean that you're accepted but not loved. That's a stupid idea. How can God say He loves you, and not accept you? We are SO well accepted! It's been paid for by our brother Jesus :)

God and Jesus will make their home in your home! How cozy is this? Prepare more bed sheets!

John 14:23
Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.

Okay, I'll try and quote things from a message about love. I wish I could do it now -.- But I don't have time it's about 22:25 and I need sleep soon XD I'll try and post it up on here. I'm sure you guys will be touched by it. I'm pretty sure I was (I was crying my eyes out because I could relate to it so much, about rejection and love).

Well if im down and my luck is down crushed, and feels like there's no one that I can count on.

There's always this verses that touch my life and give me courage and motivation to move on.


These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

John 16:33
King James Version


And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

The Romans 8:28
King James Version



Then what is LOVE(AGAPE)?

LOVE(AGAPE or CHARITY on other translartion) is:


Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful;
it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect;
but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away.

I Corinthians 13:4-10
Revised Standard Version

i just couldn't forget this story from a inspiring book that i borrowed from a christian friend at our youth group...(just read stories for a teens heart book 3 1st collection)

this was the title:
The father's anguish decision
(umm... this is what i remember since i returned that book to the owner now)

he was the speaker for that day at a youth group.
he started to tell a story about a father, a son and his son's friend.
he said "the father who was a fisherman had a son. one the day the boy invited his friend to help his father in fishing. as they were fishing in the middle of the sea, a strong storm came which cause the boat to turn upside down.
both his son and his son's friend didn't know how to swim and had almost drowned. both boys were afar from each other and he can only save one of them. his son who was a Christian and had already knew god for years and had already accepted him while his son's friend wasn't a Christian and didn't knew god. knowing for sure that his son would go to heaven and would be safe even if he died. he made the most difficult decision of his life.
he saved his son's friend while his son drowned and died. he was sure that his son would understand why he chose to save his friend and not him..and the father didnt regret what he had done cause his son's friend was now a Christian and lived a happy life now..." he ended his story while the kids had they're curious faces..
the kids went to the speaker. one kid said "what if he didnt saved his son's friend??"
he said: if the father didn't saved his son's friend, i wouldn't be here to tell that story to you now."

My faith: Jesus:
Jesus had no servants, yet they called him Master...
He had no degree, yet they called him Teacher...
He had no medicine, yet they called him Healer...
He had no army, yet kings feared him...
He won no military battles, yet he conquered the World...
He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him...
He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today
feel honored to serve such a leader who loves us...
