Just keep praying, & believing...

Wow, so everyone wants to be teen parents these days!
It's almost like they're getting preggers on purpose...and a lot of them are. For whatever reason, I have no idea. Which means we need to pray for OUR generation now more than ever. It has become so twisted. There aren't enough young people that are on fire for God, too many of them let others tell them how to live their life, instead of STANDING UP FOR THEMSELVES. They use the excuse that "I chose this myself, I know what I'm doing." Well obviously not if you started going that way after hanging out with a certain crowd. It makes me sad that we as Christians are supposed to be influencing the world, not letting it influence us. Yea, it's hard because we live in it, but we are not OF it. To me, it is weakness if you let someone else pressure you into doing something you know you shouldn't. You should be a LEADER, not a follower. Your "friend" doesn't care about you at all. A real friend would never ask you to do something that will bring you down. There are so many people that I am praying hard for. Sometimes I don't want to, because their actions annoy me. But I know I have to. Not just for them to see the light, but for something to happen for them to see the light. A little bump in the right direction. & I'm not just talking about backsliders, I'm talking about young people within the church. They aren't serious enough. I'm not saying I'm perfect, Lord knows I need all the prayer I can get... & that's why I'm posting all of this. I know what I've been through, & I'm still going through...even now. But I don't mind the struggles. Without struggles, God can't work in us. In order for a miracle to happen, bad things must happen first. & God wants to bless us, but we don't believe we deserve it. & No one does, but yet there He is, BLESSING. We need to believe that He wants to bless us. & God cannot bless us beyond our ability to believe. Ohh Lord I can go on forever. Just be keeping me, & Germany in your prayers. God is doing marvelous things in our church, & I can't wait to see what He has in store!

Wow, I don't know the circumstances to which prompted this post, but I have to say I appreciate it. It's another voice saying "NO!".

Good post. Its so relevant. I think that even a God fearing young person can make mistakes, but I am seeing more of a rebelious, I-dont-care attitude. It think its a valid concern and we should address the issue. Good post.

ASHLEY! I completely understand what ur talking about. It's like teenagers arent thinking for themselves anymore. I've been hearing left to right about teens who now are gonna have 2 take care of another human beings life. Just to hear about where they are now and what their doing with their life (at my school and at church) worries me. It's like Pregnant is the new black

I rarely get 2 go to TRC now with all the things happening at home but when I do somtimes I see whats going on with some of the teens, I think to my self and realize how its not that different from the kids from my school and it frightens me.

The world has officially gone crazie as it is (in my perspective) and the last thing ANY christian needs to do is let the world influence them.

Bye bye :)
