My New Blog

I am sorry that I have taken so long to post. It's been over a month. I do want to tell you about a website that I launched. It's a blog much like this one but it has a more defined goal.

If you want to visit it and read my new stuff, go there, because I will be posting less and less stuff on here. Thank you in advance for visiting my site!

Here it be:

There's so much more...

I hope you know that. Whoever you are. There is so much more to life than what we have. You could be perfectly content with how things are right now but what's the point in being just okay? If you feel comfortable where you are now, you need to break out of your comfort zone. If you have ability in a certain area that earns you continuous praise, strive to be better.

Abraham Lincoln could have been content earning an honest living but he wanted more and he achieved more.

I'm aiming this at anyone who is around my age when I say that you are at the prime of your life. Why waste it on partying and getting high? Why drink away your social problems when you could drink in the living water of Jesus Christ? (To girls:) Why waste the beauty you have on skimpy clothes? Why live a life that we are expected to?

There are a lot of people who don't expect much from our generation but I'd be honest in saying that most of us are the cause for it. 

There are going to be difficult times, why delay the inevitable? Start doing hard things now. If you see something that is wrong with the world then do something about it. God calls us to remarkable things. Impossible things. Some of you will change so many more lives than I could even dream of. You don't have to stand out to do it because all you need is ambition and a cause.

There's more to life than parties, sex, popularity, drugs and money. I could go on and on and on. Stop telling yourself you are okay with how things are! Start telling yourself that you can do something amazing.

Don't fool yourself when you say that waiting a little while won't hurt anyone, because even if it doesn't hurt anyone, think about how many people you could HELP by starting early.

I believe in our generation. I believe that we can change the world because soon we will be the ones leading the world. It's sad how many of us don't care because soon we will be the ones that everyone will depend on to care.

So what are you waiting for? Let that light shine. Are you keeping that light under wraps because you think you can wait? Or are you keeping it from shining on the faces of many because you are afraid? Either way you are being selfish. I repeat: What are you waiting for?

Falling into Paint/Love

I have times where I have unused inspiration. Tonight is one of those times. I feel that whatever I write may not be exactly what I meant it to be, so take to heart that I may need to revise my thoughts tomorrow.

I have a certain faith in the good of the human spirit.

hold up, I don't know what I'm doing. I definitely need to write about love, since thats what my heart is telling me to right now, and my head doesn't really have any particular direction anyway.

Falling in love is like falling in a bucket of paint. You are stained a certain color, forever, even if that color changes eventually you will always have that color somewhere on you, no matter how chipped it gets. Sometimes people only have a few coats of paint, others have many. Sometimes a coat will not get chipped much or fade much, but sometimes others do.

The important thing to take note of though is that even chipped paint that is faded can still be just as inspirational and beautiful. Marks on that paint can mean something important to the person, such a deepening in a relationship from an experience or something more life changing. 

I think that the last coat of paint you have, will be the color you were originally, before you fell in love with any of the others. Because that original color is who you are, and the person you are meant to be with and fall in love with for the last time and forever will love you for exactly who you are and nothing else.

The other coats will still be under the outside one, but only as a reminder of past experience to give you more fortitude and wisdom about life and love.

The love of your life will be a color unique in every way that cannot be matched so obviously the only way to find the love of your life is to take risks and mix the colors on your palette to find the right one, that might mean some messiness, but I think it would be worth it. So take off your apron, remove the newspaper, and start creating colors in every way possible getting as messy as you can.

The Color of Love

The issue of things being black or white in terms of good or bad, one way or the other has always been in my thoughts, and I think it's safe to assume in many other's thoughts as well.

Before I've said that there are never just two types of people. Even if those two types make up the majority. There are, in my opinion, black and white areas everywhere you look.

Left is black, right is white. Up is white, down is black.

But the thing that most people never seem to consider: Where are you right now? I think that the reason most people tend to see things in either black or white is because they are standing in the gray area and you are only looking towards the direction of white or black. Imagine being in a room, two walls are white and then two walls are black, the floor and ceiling are gray If you look in one cardinal direction you will see either black or white.

Don't forget that there are many shades of gray. The reason why some people don't see things eye to eye is because they are standing in different shades of gray. I think that if you try and get someone to see your opinion while you tell yourself that you are standing in the white or black areas, they will see your opinion differently. They won't see it the same way you do because they are standing in different area. Anything can contribute to why you are standing in a particular place, such as how you were raised or who your friends are. But you have to remember that pretty much everyone is in a different shade of gray because no one has had the exact same experience as someone else.

That's why Jesus stood in the grey area of humanity. So that he could not only save us but learn about the gray in us. I am in no way saying that God was ignorant of what we went through before but in being human he was able to bridge the gap between the black and white. He was able to create the deepest and most important shade of gray that humanity has ever seen, and he was able to do that without becoming gray at all. I'd assume that God sees everything in black and white. But His black and white must be so much different from ours and He loves us so deeply that he can look through whatever black and white we may have and see us in a different color altogether. I think that He sees things so clearly that whatever black and white we have don't blur together to make gray but something else entirely.

When Jesus came down and died for our sins he made it so that no matter what shade of gray we are in, we could get rid of all our notions of black and white and go to the place with the colors of the rainbow that God calls us to. Are you going to let your own perspective on the blacks and whites of our world prevent you from reaching out to someone in a different shade of gray? Or are you going to learn to look pass all of the worldy things and see someone for who they really are, a creation of God made with the color of love.

The following is a quote by C.S. Lewis that I took to heart the moment I read it, I suggest whoever reads this does the same. But its only a suggestion.

"One great piece of mischief has been done by the modern restriction of the word Temperance to the question of drink. It helps people to forget that you can be just as intemperate about lots of other things. A man who makes his golf or his motor-bicycle the centre of his life, or a woman who devotes all her thoughts to clothes or bridge or her dog, is being just as ‘intemperate’ as someone who gets drunk every evening. Of course, it does not show on the outside so easily: bridge-mania or golf-mania do not make you fall down in the middle of the road. But God is not deceived by externals."

Think about that...

Big Fish

It's been awhile since I wrote an actual blog, kind of, I've only written poems and songs the last few times. I hate to say that I don't really have much to offer in terms of food for thought. I've been going through a crazy mental battle right now, which sucks since school is starting soon and I'm not prepared at all. I have no idea how to react to people now, I've lost all sense of myself. The only thing I know anymore is that God exists, and the some how some way He will help me.
But I have no idea how, I mean I'm not even sure if I believe in Hell in the eternal sense anymore, I don't know if I've just been hiding like Jonah did, I think that metaphorically I am stuck inside of a fish, trying to contemplate what God wants me to do, but the reason why I am in this fish for so long is because I can't figure it out. It's kind of lonely in here, I feel like if I had a girl with me then she would help answer all my questions. I miss having that relationship. Which is why I wrote picnic in the rain, to try and embrace those feelings of being in a relationship.
I used to think that people needed me, but really they don't, at least not really. I've been extremely prideful in that matter, thinking that I am better than most people because people needed me. It's a good thing that I fell from the pride, but its going to be a tedious task picking myself back up, there is no way that I can do it alone. Good thing there is God, I just hope he sends me someone that I need soon. I don't know how much longer I can last in this fish. It's dark, and lonely, and I'm running out of the essentials. Messages in bottles won't do any good, I've tried and even if anyone got the message, they obviously didn't try and help. So if anyone is out there, anyone at all. I need you.

Picnic in the Rain

Oh, baby, you know that you are
The thunder to my lightning
oh yeah.

When the clouds come rollin' in
On our picnic day
All that I can say
Is I love you, girl

Let's dance in the rain
I'll take away all of your pain
I want you to be mine
Our love will transcend time
I'll wipe the tears from your face
The touch of our lips will make my case
We were meant to be Together
oh yeah

You are the thunder to my Lightning
The fire in your eyes
Fuels the flame in my Soul
Our spirits entwined
You're always on my mind
My love

As the rain begins to fade
And the clouds begin to clear
I see a gift from God
That says we have none to fear
For even as the rainbow goes
We'll be in His hand
Forever, Together
