You Won’t Relent
I love this song. The first time I heard it, I fell in love with it. The words are just so astounding. There are 4 different parts to the song and they are all amazing.
This is one of my favorites to do with the youth because it is such an emotional song. I could do this song every single Wednesday because it’s that good but most Wednesday’s we don’t have a drummer. My boyfriend says that this song needs drums or else it won’t have the dynamics it needs to sound phenomenal. This song has a lot of quiet and an equal amount of loud parts to it. There are a lot of builds and a lot of drops. So if you’re going to do this song, drums are recommended.
Before I was a Christian, all I did was wait and procrastinate. I wanted to be a Christian, I wanted to read the Bible, and I wanted to go to church. But what was I waiting for? What are you waiting for?
Every time I passed a duration in my life that I was potentially “waiting for” to get started, I just came up with a new one.”I have enough books to read right now, I’ll read the Bible after I graduate.” “Sundays are a no go for me, I’ll wait until I have a car so I don’t have to bother anyone for a ride.”
Set A Fire by Will Reagan
Set a fire is another one of our go to songs. It’s a song we have done a bunch of times. The thing about doing songs like this over and over is sometimes people can become numb to what they are saying. They will just sing it and not think about the words coming out of their mouths.
Open when you are feeling stressed
Everyone gets stressed. I do, and I’m sure you do. With that being said, your lovely significant other is also going to get super stressed at some point. Why not have a letter waiting for him to open. It can calm his nerves, knowing he has a loving, supportive girlfriend!

You Can’t Read Your Bible Enough
Reading the bible is one of the most important things you can do as a Christian, as long as you’re doing your best to live it out. It’s something that brings you closer to God while it changes your heart and attitude. The more you read it, the more you learn. Trust me, you can’t read your bible enough. You use what you study through out the day and watch how God uses your new biblical knowledge to enrich your daily life. You are suppose to take up our cross daily and spend time with Him as much as we can.
About two years ago, I remember getting a phone call informing me that my grandpa was in the hospital. We drove thousands of miles to make sure we got there before things exaberated. When things were going in the opposite direction of what we were anticipating, different family members began asking me to pray with them.
I have so much to do
“You know I love you God but my teacher just offered me extra credit if I write a 3 page paper by tomorrow night and I really need it. Yes, I know I could have said no to working that extra shift tonight but God, I really need the money. You know, Valentine’s Day is coming up, I really wanna take my girlfriend/boyfriend to a good restaurant. I know I promised I’d spend time with you but I forgot to do my laundry the other day, I really need to do it right now.
I have to spend 2 hours minimum watching Netflix with my boyfriend/girlfriend. On suday mornings, I signed up to sing at church, be in the choir, and teach a Sunday school class for the children. I have to play guitar for about 1 hour in order to get better. I need to find time to sleep still, plus I have to use the bathroom every once in a while. God, I don’t think I have time for you today, but I promise, tomorrow, I will try to at least spend 5 minutes reading the Bible.”
1 John 2 Part 1: Blinded By Darkness And Hatred
I loved reading 1 John. It has so much that a new christian needs to hear. I spent hours just reading it over and over because I was learning so much from it each time.
