Song of The Week || Strong Enough


This song is dedicated to those who feel like they’re not enough.

“Strong Enough”

You must You must think I’m strong
To give me what I’m going through
Well, forgive me Forgive me if I’m wrong
But this looks like more than I can do On my own
I know I’m not strong enough to be everything that I’m supposed to be I give up
I’m not stong enough Hands of mercy won’t you cover me Lord right now I’m asking you to be
Strong enough Strong enough For the both of us
Well, maybe
Maybe that’s the point To reach the point of giving up
Cause when I’m finally
Finally at rock bottom Well, that’s when I start looking up
And reaching out
I know I’m not strong enough to be
Everything that I’m supposed to be I give up I’m not strong enough
Hands of mercy won’t you cover me Lord right now I’m asking you to be
Strong enough Strong enough
Cause I’m broken Down to nothing
But I’m still holding on to the one thing
You are God and you are strong When I am weak
I can do all things Through Christ who gives me strength
And I don’t have to be Strong enough Strong enough
I can do all things Through Christ who gives me strength
And I don’t have to be Strong enough Strong enough
Oh, yeah
I know I’m not strong enough to be everything that I’m supposed to be I give up I’m not strong enough
Hands of mercy won’t you cover me Lord right now I’m asking you to be
Strong enough Strong enough Strong enough

Bible Verse of the Week || Jesus is ALIVE!


“Don’t be afraid. I know you are looking for Jesus. He is not here. He has risen from death as He said He would.Matthew 28:5-6 

This is what the angel said to Mary and Mary Magdalene when they went searching for Jesus in the tomb. He is not here. He has risen from death. Which is enough to know that our GOD is ALIVE. Here’s a trailer for a Christian movie entitled “God’s Not Dead” COMING SOON on 2014:

GOD’S NOT DEAD is a feature film about college student Josh Wheaton (Shane Harper) whose faith is challenged by his Philosophy Professor Mr. Radisson (Kevin Sorbo) who believes God does not exist. It revolves around the lives of several individuals who are also challenged by a world that believes God doesn’t exist starring Kevin Sorbo, 
David A.R. White, Dean Cain, Shane Harper and the Newsboys

Bible Verse of the Week || Bullied because of Jesus?


I do not own this picture

I do not own this picture

Matthew 5:11

“Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.

Though I haven’t been bullied for being- what some people call a ‘Jesus freak’, there would be a time in my life where I would… and I don’t know if I would be ready to confront that yet. I tend to be easily annoyed, angered, and very sensitive, it scares me that I might lose my temper and say or do something I would regret. And there are also times when I hesitate to talk about God because I am afraid of rejection and people teasing me for being so ‘religious’ when that is not even the point.

But I do have these very rewarding moments where I gather every courage I could get and share the word of God to my friends and family- knowing that if I failed, I have done my job and God will do the rest.

There was this time when I sat down beside my mom’s step father who held a cigar on his left hand, “So…” he suddenly spoke, blowing away a puff of smoke that faded to the air. I watched mesmerized as the smoke danced around, but the undeniable rapid beating of my heart confirmed to me that I was very nervous about what he would say “You’re a born against huh?” he asked whilst bringing the cigar to his mouth and taking a deep breath. I chuckled a bit feeling slightly amused from his mistake and also slightly offended, “Its born again- not against” I corrected uneasily, then wondered silently if I should talk and what I would say if I did. “Do you believe in God?” I asked and he replied with a ‘yes’, “Then why do you drink and smoke?” I continued, hoping I have not offended him with this question. I do not recall what he said to be exact- but what I do remember is being a little sad, disappointed and nervous. I stuttered a lot and talked with caution, making sure I didn’t say something wrong or to offend.

This was my first encounter with talking about God to someone- not so close- or a family member. I was disappointed with myself and when our little chat ended, that was the time when I thought thoroughly about what I should have said- sadly- I do not remember if I found out what to say or if I know the answer that I should’ve said. Though this is not exactly bullying I will tell you something that would help both our problems…

Psalm 118:6

The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?

Romans 8:31

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

We have to be able to ACCEPT rejection and remember NOT to argue- but share the word of God… by arguing it is winning we are trying to achieve, but the truth is, we do not want to win an argument, but we want to win a soul.

I have made a lot of mistakes and would make a bad role model  as a Christian- I do not know if you recall- the banana problem

It was break time and we were in the cafeteria, I had a banana in my lunch box, but it was smashed, so, being me I decided to throw it, then my classmate butts in and said “Don’t waste the food and throw it around, some people cant even afford food” then I got guilty, but I still wasn’t willing to eat it so I said “I’ll give it to my snail then” (cause I have a snail), but my classmate still didn’t approve, she shook her head disappointedly and asked my other classmate next to her about my religion (which was completely unexpected) my classmate replied with disgust clear on her face “Born Again” she spat, and that, just sank my heart… It showed me that I had to be careful about things I do, even small things like banana’s…

Trust me, being a christian isn’t all easy- but it isn’t meant to be easy. To have someone die on the cross for you… that’s some intense and serious love. The people who bully you don’t know who’m they’re dealing with…

“THE CHILD OF THE ONE TRUE KING”

P.S. That doesn’t mean they aren’t a child of GOD- the only difference between you and the person is that they aren’t aware of that. Which is where you come in and tell to them the truth. Imagine a dramatic scene where you place your hands on their shoulder, looking straight into their eyes saying “We are brothers/sisters”. I’m just kidding!

God bless you guys and have a GREAT day!

You have a voice, go on and use it. You have a choice, don’t let them shut you down ~JJ Heller
