"Hmm, what does that mean?"
I am going to be posting today for Arctic!
"Okay, well get on with it!"
Okay, okay, I will, but first I must tell you something.
"Okay, tell us."
:Stands still and is silent:
:Crickets can be heard:
"House, come on! We don't have ALL day!"
Okay, then. :Walks off stage:
So, today I am going to be doing the Christian Girl Tag. I had seen this tag done on YouTube, thinking it was an amazing idea to do! Obviously, this is a Christian post, which I am really passionate about doing. Without further ado, let's get started!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (A lot of exclamation marks, but whatever I am pretty cited, :Hesitates: or I mean excited)!
1) How long have you been saved, and when did you become saved?
I have been saved for 5 years! I got saved on Easter of 2013 around 7 PM, which was March 31st. This day, we were at church (which was at my home, since we didn't have a church where we lived, before moving). The pastor was talking about the rapture, and that if God would to come back at 7 O' clock that they (meaning the saved people in the church) would be gone. I started bawling! My mom saw me and asked if I was okay. I told her that I wasn't sure if I was saved. My dad took a bible showed me that Jesus Died, was buried, and rose again the third day. All because I was a sinner and needed a Savior. At that moment, when I admitted that I needed him to save me and him alone, is when I got saved.
2) What's your favorite Bible verse, and what does it mean to you?
My favorite verse would have to be Romans 1:16. Yeah, I have many, but I think this particular would have to be ultimate favorite, it reads;
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. (KJV)
This is my favorite because, I know whatever opposition that comes against me when telling people about the gospel, I shouldn't be ashamed of it. It's the gospel that changes people. It's the gospel that changes people's destination from hell to heaven. It's by the power of God that I am even able to believe in Jesus Christ. This may be a little verse, but there is A LOT in it.
3) What's your favorite Christian song and why?
Lately, I've been loving "I Want To Be That Man," by Brian Free and Assurance. It's a really great song. It speaks about how his father woke up every morning before the sun came up to read his bible. He was a man who lived the bible. The person who wrote it goes on to say that he wants to be that man that lives the bible, just like his father.
Well, I want to be a young lady that lives the bible. One that loves God and the bible. I think my ultimate favorite Christian song would actually be a hymn entitled, "What A Friend We Have In Jesus." Mainly because, I learned what a true friend he was, when I didn't have any physical friends.
4) What is your favorite Christian book?
Hmm...That is a good question. I do read, but I don't know if I can really say I have a favorite. I don't really think this counts, but I'll say the bible! I mean, it is Christian and it is a book, so I don't know why it wouldn't count? XD
5) What's your favorite thing about church?
My favorite thing about church is the preaching. I know it may sound boring, but I honestly love the messages that we get. They are always so practical, to both the young and old. I strive to be pleasing to God and listen to what he wants me to do. I do get a lot from reading the bible, but I love the preaching. It gives a different view on the scripture that I am able to apply to my life.
6) If you could meet Jesus right now, what would your first question/action be?
Hmm, again a good question. I would probably ask; "What it was like to step down into time, when he had been living in eternity for...well...FOREVER literally." It seems like a pretty deep question, but it would be an interesting answer.
My first action, would have to be probably falling to my face crying. I would imagine.
7) Oddest place that you have ever prayed?
I am not really sure if you can pray in an "odd" place. I would have to say the weirdest time I've prayed was while cleaning up dog doo doo. Yeah, but I was by myself and I just felt like praying and talking to God. So, that's exactly what I did! I don't really think it was odd though. Maybe if someone saw me. They would probably accuse me being drunk like Eli did with Hannah...or not. 😉
8) Are you ready if Jesus were to come tomorrow?
Absolutely! My question is, why not right this moment!? :Pauses and waits: AW MAN! I am still here...
9) How do you openly share your faith?
Hmm, I don't get out often to tell people. However, I do try telling people on AJ. I used to play this other game that I would post bible verses on people's "walls." Obviously, from time to time I'll blog about my faith. As far as walking up to actual people and sharing my faith. I don't really do that often.
The People I Tag:
Today's Christian Quote:
You are the ONLY bible some unbelievers will EVER read. - John MacArthur
The question is, what are they reading? Yeah, I know it's a painful thing to look at. It's not easy to ask yourself this question, but I know it's right. It's right to every now and then step back and ask yourself. "What influence am I having on others?" It's one that I try to ask myself on a regular basis. Believe me I fail...A LOT! Sorry, if I stuck you, but maybe you would take the warning in a positive way. If you want to call it a "warning."
Today's Bible Verse:
For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. - Proverbs 3:26 (KJV)
