“The Words I Would Say” – Sidewalk Prophets

I love this song. I think the lyrics are absolutely beautiful and are so true. I dedicate this song to all my friends who are seniors and are getting ready to start a new chapter of their lives.

The chorus has such strong lyrics, so I hope you take them to heart.

“So please hear these simple truths.
Be strong in the Lord and,
Never give up hope.
You’re going to do great things,
I already know!

Making time for God

Hello everyone! I am sorry it has been so long since I made a post, I have been crazy busy with the end of the semester and the show I am in opens tomorrow.

And that brings me to the topic of this entry, making time for God. Most college students I know are committed to various clubs, jobs, friendships, not to mention classwork. It seems like there aren’t enough hours in the day to fit everything in. And as we are rushing from one activity to another, it easy to put God on the back burner.

Why do we do that? Is it because we know he will always be there, so it won’t hurt to ignore him for a while?

“White Flag”- Chris Tomlin

I love this song. It was a part of Passion 2012, which is a yearly conference for college students, with this year being held in Atlanta, Ga.

The song is powerful and true, stating we surrender to God everything. My favorite lyrics are:

“The battle rages on.

A storm in tempest roar,

We cannot when this fight.

Easter and Christmas Christians

This past Sunday was Easter, and like every church in the nation, my church was packed for all three weekend services. Now, that it amazing to get so many people in the door! But the sad thing is that many will not return until December.

We all know people like this. People who think they are covering their bases by celebrating Jesus’ birth and resurrection. They come in all ages!

For people our age, they are often those who label themselves “Christian” in the religious views section on their facebook. But if you went to their photos or timeline, you would NEVER guess.

Good Friday

Today at school, the chapel hosted a small Good Friday service. Various people read passages from Mark 14:17- 15:39, and musical interludes were played in between the parts of the Passion.

Now, I will admit I am not usually a fan of traditional services where there are hymnals, but the point of the service was so much more important than the style of music played. I personally was an emotional wreck during the readings.

I am usually a pretty stable person and try to hold back tears when I am in public. But for this, I couldn’t hold anything back. This is the story of how our Savior DIED for us. I don’t deserve that at all!
