Serious Question

  • Mood: Fine
  • Music: TV in the background

Just here to pose a question to all those people in the United States:

Why is that people in the south are considered more religious?

What is southern hospitality?

And, why are southerners considered friendly?

What's wrong with us up in the north? Do we look that mean? Just wondering.

  • Mood: "Come on back to me" - Third Day

Wow, so this is my first ever entry at Teen Central. I'm Erika, and I'm pretty much just a music dork and a proud Jesus Freak. I'm called to sing and write music, and some of my favorite past times are taking secular music and changing the words around for the glory of our father, God. I got bored, and did that today, and decided to post the lyrics, so enjoy!

"Jumping with joy we're going to make a big noise.
Praising in the street. Gonna be with Jesus some day.
He's got love on his face.
He's full of grace.
Casting out demons all over the place.
He will - He will rock you.
He will - He will rock you.

Now we've got the generation that won't stray.
Shouting in the street, we're gonna take ba
ck the world today.
He's got love on his face.
He's full of grace.
We worship Him with our banners all over the place.
He will - He will save you.
He will - He will save you.

Pleading the blood of Jesus.
We're lifting up His name.
Breaking down the strongholds
We're gonna make some peace today.
He's got love on his face.
He's full of grace.
It's time to put the devil back in his place.

He will - He will rock you.
He will - He will rock you.
He will - He will save you.
He will - He will save you.
He will - He will rock you.
He will - He will rock you.
We will - We will rock you.

We will - We will rock you.

In Christ,

*A True Story!*

  • Mood:

While serving at a small field hospital in Africa, every two weeks I traveled by byicycle through the jungle to a nearby city for supplies. This was a journey of two days and required camping overnight at a halfway point. on one of these journeys, I arrived in the city and observed two men fighting, one of whom had been seriously injured. I treated him for his injuries and talked to him about the Lord Jesus Christ.

Two weeks later, I repeated my journey. Upon arriving in the city, I was approached by the young man i treated. He told me that he had known that I carried money and medicines. He said, "Some friends and I followed you into the jungle, knowing you would camp overnight. We plannedto kill you and take your money and drugs. But just as we were about to move into your camp, we saw that you were surrounded by 26 armed guards.
At this, I laughed and said that I was certianly all alone in that jungle campsite. The young man pressed the point, however, and said, "No sir, I was not the only person to see the guards. My five friends also saw them, and we counted them.
At this point in the sermon, one of the men in the congregation jumped to his feet and asked if the missionary could tell him the exact day this happened. The speaker told the congregation the date, then the man who interrupted said, "On the night of your incident in Africa, it was morning here and I was preparing to go play golf when I felt  the urge to pray for you. In fact, the urging of the Lord was so strong that I called men in this church to meet with me in the sanctuary to pray for you. Would those men who met together to pray that day stand up? The men who had met together to pray that stood up. There were 26 men!

What do You think being Saved Means?

 Going to Church
 Joining a Church
 Being Baptized
 Being Raised in a Christian Home
 Going to a Christian School
 Being a Good Person
 Repenting of Your Sins and asking Jesus into Your Heart

♥ A New Day ♥

  • Mood:

God says His mercies are New Every morning! So that's why I can say I wake up to a New Day resting in His Peace & love. I wish so badly that "Everyone" could have this confidence & assurance. My heart aches for those who are hurting. I don't have much to offer, but I can give you Jesus! The things of the world don't offer much. To my readers who suffer in a world of their own, i've been there. The world offer's darkness, abuse, mental anguise & torment, confussion, fear, and no sense of self. Jesus offers, Hope, Unconditonal Love, Peace of mind and heart in the midst of bad cirumstances, A sound Mind, deliverance from broken hearts, & I could go on all day.

God said   "For I know the thoughts that I think toward YOU, says the Lord, thoughts of Peace and not of Evil, to give You a Future and  a Hope" Then you will call on me and go and pray to me, and I WILL listen to You. And you will seek Me and find Me when you search with all your heart" Jeremiah 29:11-13

"Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will Revive me, and your right hand will Save me. The Lord will Perfect that which Concerns me; Your Mercy, O Lord, Endures Forever!" Psalm 138: 7,8.

"Come to me, all you that are heavy burdened, and I will give you Rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am Gentle and Lowly in heart, and You Will Find Rest for Your Souls." Matthew 11:28,29

 Because of Adam & Eve, we live in a world of sin. But Jesus said "I've come to give you Life!"  He hasen't left us to make it on our own. He made provision for us by dying on the cross and shedding his blood for our sins. That's how much He loves us! It's the sick who need a physician, not the well! We can Never get our lives right before coming to Jesus. He wants us Just as we are.

 Just call out to Him in prayer & ask him to forgive your sins, and to come into your heart. He came to heal the brokenhearted and to bind up their wounds. If you are broken, take a step of faith and pray this prayer. What have you got to loose when nothing else is working?

 You will need the support of people who know Jesus and care for you. Most new believers start out with a bible they can understand. Your faith will grow by Hearing the Word of God. And nothing you do or have done will be shocking to those who love Jesus. You will find compassion and love to get you through the hard times.

Here are some links that will get you started.

Bible's  http://bible.gospelcom.net/passage/ I suggest the New Living Translation. Type in keywords such as love, hope, forgiveness, etc. You can also read the bible online. Pick a book, such as the gospel of John. http://www.jesus.big-love.info/

Church's The most caring church's i've found are those associated with Willow Creek. Go here to find one in your area. http://www.willowcreek.com. and clik on "Find a Church" http://www.willowcreek.com./wca_info/find_a_church/ProfileSearch.asp

If you have made this decission or want to, or even have questions, please email me at cjhannoel@hotmail.com . Put "Looking" in the subject line. You'll need a mentor to help you on your way. No one goes it alone. We need each other. I'll be there for you!

♥Teen Survivial Guide♥

  • Mood:
Teen Survival Kit"  

So whats a Teen Survival Kit????  Anything that will help you get through your TEEN years in a POSITIVE WAY. Everyone add your survivial tips, and I will post them on this page. What helps you, and Why? I think this will also be Fun to see how other's cope with the ups and downs of being a Teenager! (Tomorrow I wills start a Story, and everyone has to add their own part to it until it is a finished story!) So come back tomorrow and let's go into make believe land!)


1.UnConditional Love!
What's That? When someone loves you no matter what you do, no strings attached!
Where Can I Find It? First in Jesus. "I have LOVED you with an EVERLASTING LOVE"Jerimiah 31:3 "God IS Love."1 John 4:8" It is also found in Friends & Families.

They will be there to lift you up when you need it, IF you will let them. There are people who Really Do Care, or we would not be writing this.

3.Small Groups
Why? Small Groups such as Youth Groups, or Cell groups are a place you can get to know other's on an intiment level and feel safe in sharing your feelings.

4.Coping Skills
What's that? Not everyone has the ability to cope in certian situations.Coping Skills are Learned.
How do I Learn Them? Usually by a good mentor. Such as Youth Group Leaders, Adults you trust & Books! There are Many good books on Depression & other topics that relate to you. They teach you the skills you need to cope with your circumstances. The best books will come from your local Christian Book Store. If you are DEPRESSED or SUICIDAL it May Not Be Your what You think! Sometimes Chemicals in the brain need med's to get you back to feeling right. Also thyroid problems can cause these feelings. Your living conditions may also contribute to your depression. Depression is an ache in the soul and that crushes your spirit. It wraps itself so tightly around you that you can't believe it will ever leave; but it can and it does! (the book, "Finding Hope Again" by Neil T. Anderson. I highly recomend this book. (found at many bookstores)  Please
Clik Here if you are feeling suicidal. For Hurting Yourself Clik Here. Statistics show that those who have Spiritual Awareness are less likely to commit suicide and make it through depression. You CAN be a survivor! Clik here for flash video's that are helpful. You will have to scroll down the page.

5.Talk, Talk, Talk,!
Why? It releases built up emotions & other's who have been through the same things can tell how they overcame them. Also you need someone who will JUST listen to you. If you have no one you trust, online friends can help a great deal through a message board or chat room. I will add both to my journal & let me know nights you all would want to chat. Clik here for chat and message board.

Now, it's Your turn! ♥ Love~*~Angeldust ♥

♥I hope you never loose your sense of wonder♥

  • Mood:

I hope you never loose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger

May you never take one single breath for granted

God forbid love ever leaves you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean

When one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance...I  hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountians in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin might mean takin chances, but there worth makin!

Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin out reconsider

Give the heaven's above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the chance to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance,,,I hope you dance

Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along
Tell me who want's to look back on their year's and wonder
where those year's have gone.
I hope you dance...I hope you dance.
