If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
When Charizard holds a Charizardite X, it can Mega Evolve into Mega Charizard X! This item can be obtained only in Pokémon X. Unlike Mega Charizard Y, Mega Charizard X changes types when it Mega Evolves. It changes from a Fire- and Flying-type Pokémon to a Fire- and Dragon-type Pokémon.
Youth Convention opening night! Pretty much the highlight of our Youth Church every year. Hundreds from all over the world come to this conference and I can’t wait to see what God is about to do in the lives of these kids. #openBible #church #youthconvention #sunday #Jesus
Dear God I hate to be a bother, but I gotta say This world is getting crazier with every day I hope You’ll hear me out now as I stop and pray
Dear God People take Your words and try to twist ‘em round I know You can’t be happy with what’s goin’ down I’m searchin’ for some answers, but they can’t be found Can You help me out, dear God
Dear God, Just the other night I heard somebody say What’s the use believin’ in You anyway I guess it was just heartache talkin’ through the pain It’s a cryin’ shame
Dear God, I know You’re disappointed in the things we’ve done Can’t they see the truth that they’re all running from Try to preach You message with a loaded gun What they thinkin’ of, Dear God
Everybody’s searching for an easy solution They can’t see beyond, the selfish world they’re living in Your words of love get lost, in all the confusion But I still believe, someday You’re gonna speak to me
Dear God, I know You’ve got a million other calls to take You’re dealing with a lot of things that just won’t wait But there is one request that I just gotta make
Dear God Won’t You send a sign down, just to ease my doubt I’m trying to hear You, but the silence is so loud I think I see a rainbow from behind the clouds And I hear You now, dear God
My heart is breaking over the fact that this has to happen.
What could have possibly driven a 19 year old boy, who has his entire life ahead of him to this act? I would honestly just want to have had the opportunity to sit with this kid and just hear him out. The story is that he could have possibly be angry about the death of his brother who apparently died at the hands of police officers (not too sure about this detail), but the entire bombing seems to have been led by revenge.
Now, this kid is America’s most wanted and most hated…I sit here wondering what is going through his mind and his heart at this time. Why do I care about him? Because if I had not find Christ and had he not release me from the emotional pains and trauma from my own life I could have very well ended up like him. It’s only by the grace of God.
I’m in no way condoning his behavior, I just want to understand. I want to understand what could have bent and broken this young man in such a way that he is fueled with hatred. Lord this is your child as well, reveal Yourself to him and on to the path of salvation..
"I wish I grew up with less of an emphasis on Bible-reading and more of an emphasis on prayer. The Scripture doesn’t say “Jesus withdrew to read His Bible.” It says, “Jesus withdrew to pray.” Read your Bible sometimes. But pray all the time. Some of the most spiritually dry and dead people I’ve ever met read their Bible all the time: they’re called scholars. I have yet to meet a man drenched, soaked, and absorbed in the mystical fellowship of God through prayer who is dead and dry. The Holy Spirit didn’t fall on the disciples in Acts when they were reading their Bibles. He fell with FIRE when they were praying.
