Us needy people.

Firstly, I'm very glad to have found someone else who lives in Mellieha (: On my side of the valley even! And she goes to JC, and many of you know her. *mock frustration* WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TELL ME GIANELLA LIVES A HANDFUL OF STREETS AWAY?! WHY? WHY? WHY? moving on.

As i was walking home from the bus stop (her dad was coming for her & I felt like walking) I was listening to my iPod, and Surely We Can Change by David Crowder Band came on. I suggest listening to it and really contemplating the lyrics. The simplicity of the song make them stand out amazingly well and strongly. There's more to it that what I'm about to mention. There's this lyric that really made me think:
When all the Love in the world is right here among us
And i was thinking along the lines of how we often say, "i need love!" or "love me" or want to feel like we're needed and loved, and almost want proof of it through physical mediums (which, might I add, don't prove much. Depends on the person you're getting it from. But I won't go into that right now). Anyway, in reality we have all the love in the world, standing next to us 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Or, always and forever, if you think time is a human invention (somehow I'm starting to see that theory as less and less ridiculous [doesn't mean i don't think it's necessary]). Sommies, we just feel like we're "unloved" or whatever, when hello, the proof is in the cross. You know, that thing we carry around our necks, the thing we use to show our identity, the thing we hide behind when we fail, that thing that shows other christians "look, I'm one of you. Let's stick together". That thing, that bore all our shame, that thing that caused one innocent, pure, shameless person, three hours of agony. That thing that carried a condemned man, broken and bruised for our sakes. That thing that has so much to say; such symbolism in so many ways. The thing that held that undeserving, holy Teacher up - not by nails - but by the need for us to be freed, for us to become clean, for us to have a chance of seeing God face to face one day. Seriously guys, to pretend we're unloved when we have that is insanity. 
Surely we can change?

Yes, it's the third one today

first of all, you should all know that this is nothing personal.
However, I have to say that it can be annoying when people keep begging me to blog again, cos I haven't in a while or whatever the reason may be. More annoying is when I'm then told they haven't made a reader think, "like they used to" or they declined in number. Most offensive is being told I haven't even tried to blog properly.
I realise that the fact you're asking for a blog is cos you like them, but you get what you ask for, and if it doesn't please you, don't ask for it.
Because quite frankly, I can't just think of a mentally stimulating subject that I'm willing to talk about in a second (overnight). Neither can i find something you're all going to like, and I'm going to enjoy blabbing about, every few days.
I'd say there are too many variables in a person's life to have such a consistency in these things. Maybe I have less to say? maybe I'm less stimulated? maybe I'm not as comfortable with blogging as I used to be? maybe what I think about at this time is too personal for a blog? And maybe even, pressure takes the fun out of blogging completely. I sometimes do get ideas, but if I know it's not "worth the wait" I've put you through to get to it, or I think only a select few will understand or enjoy it, I leave it.
In conclusion, your pesterings for a blog from this day forward will be ignored. I'll post when I feel i have something relevant to say, and hopefully the standard will begin to rise again. Maybe the frequency too. (:

I am a Christian




I am a Christian


When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not shouting "I'm clean livin'."
I'm whispering "I was lost,
Now I 'm found and forgiven."

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble
and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak
And need His strength to carry on.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed
And need God to clean my mess.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible
But, God believes I am worth it.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches
So I call upon His name.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
 
I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner
Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Unworthy blog

Hello :)

I've discovered a very fun pastime, especially if you go to Junior College, or are constantly surrounded by people of all kinds.. Find look-alikes! I've so far found a split image of Prince Caspian, a slightly less good looking version of Orlando Bloom, a literal Demi Lovato, my systems teacher looks like a mole (the furry ones that live underground), my maths lecturer looks like Russell Brand without the hair and much of the humour, and another one i can't remember right now XD.

Also, I can tie my hair up into two bunches xD I found this out like half an hour ago, and I'm very amused :D

Back to the look-alike business. Sort of. I was watching Pride and Prejudice yesterday and I found two character-alikes XD Mr.Collins, and Georgiana Darcy. I don't want to offend so I won't mention names, just know that films count as places to find similarities xD. *Wishes she found a Darcy-alike too :P*

I was looking at blogs just now, and on ben's I saw this video:



And it made me think (as I'm sure it was intended to do). And I think I'll leave it to you to re-think :P

One word of advice: If you don't like homework don't take maths Alevel :)
Which brings me back down "to land" with a goodbye, blessings, and hugs!
