There are those people who have always told me “God is the only man you’ll ever need.” And while there is complete truth in that statement, God is also the man who created marriage. He gave us a longing for another person to share our lives with. So is it wrong to want a girlfriend/boyfriend? I don’t think so. It’s what we do with that wanting that makes it right or wrong.

Sometimes we run out and start dating to fill a void. That’s when the wanting turns wrong, that’s when we get hurt.

Be patient. It is hard, but it is necessary. Be patient when it’s hard and be consistent in prayer (Romans 12:12). Pray for the person you will marry. Pray that both of you will make good decisions in the relationships you have before and after you meet. Pray that they will make God their number one and you their number two. Pray that they love you enough to wait for you.

The older we get, the harder it is to wait for that person. As high school students (especially seniors), we are starting to reach that point in life where marriage isn’t an outrageously far off event. So waiting on God’s timing becomes harder, but maybe this is a time that God can teach us, mold us, and make us into the people He wants us to be!


Pointless facts

30 10 2010

For the first time in a long time, I’m having writers block. I’m not happy! haha So, since I couldn’t come up with anything to talk about, I decided I would give you a bunch of pointless facts!

  1. Porcupines float in water!
  2. In Rhode Island it’s illegal to bite off somebody else’s leg. (And you would want to do that why?…)
  3. In Indiana it’s illegal to sniff glue.
  4. Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour. (yay?)
  5. In Ontario you can’t drag a dead horse down Yonge Street in Toronto on a Sunday. (pahaha!)
  6. In Harper Woods Michigan it’s illegal  to paint sparrows and sell them as parakeets. (I bet somebody tried that..genius really..haha)
  7. Leonardo DiVinci invented the scissors. (huh! Who knew?)
  8. Your stomach has to produce a new layer of mucus every two weeks; otherwise it will digest itself.
  9. In Tennessee You can’t shoot any game other than whales from a moving automobile. (Waaah?)
  10. About 13 people die each year because of vending machines.
  11. In Juneau, Alaska  the owners of flamingos may not let their pet into barber shops. (ok, who owns a flamingo anyway?!)
  12. Donald Duck comics were banned in Finland because he doesn’t wear pants

I feel as if my brain just melted out of my ears from the pointlessness of these things. Ah well! They made me laugh! =)

“She’s Hot”

30 07 2010

I really don’t like it when guys call girls hot. From a Christian girls perspective, it’s demeaning and disrespectful because I feel like the word hot portrays something more sexual than just thinking somebody is good looking. I heard a guy say it this way…

“When you call a girl hot, that means that you look at them and immediately have lustful thoughts and all you think about is the sexual and physical things.”

I was doing some searches on what people thought of the words sexy and hot and I found that usually people defined the word “hot” by saying it means sexy. The definition of sexy is “tending to arouse sexual desires or interests.” So by this definition, and what people are saying, when you call a girl hot you aren’t just saying she is physically attractive to you but more that she is sexually attractive to you and you view her as more of an item than a girl.

To be completely honest, my opinion of a guy is lowered when I hear him use the word hot to describe a girl. I know that if he truly respected girls he would use the words like beautiful, pretty, gorgeous, and so on.  When I think about my guy friends that I truly respect, I can’t think of one time when I have heard them use the word hot to describe a girl. I do not think it’s wrong to see a girl and notice her appearance. That can’t really be helped unless you walk around with your eyes closed :P But what you do with observation is up to you.

If you use the argument that girls encourage it, well, then it goes back to what I’ve said in previous posts about why girls dress and act the way we do. We like attention but it’s not the kind of attention we need so it’s your job to be the leader and not to give us bad attention even when we encourage it sometimes.

This is just what I feel the word means and what other people have said the word means. Maybe you as guys don’t see it this way. But that’s not what this blog is about is it? :) It’s about giving you the girls perspective.

Well, I’m leaving for a missions trip to Canada tomorrow morning! YAY! So if you could keep my team in your prayers we would all appreciate it! I am super excited!! :D
