A story to live by
There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, 'If I could only see the world, I will marry you.'

One day,
someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages
came off, she was able to see everything, including her

He asked her, 'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?' The
girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The
sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected
that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life
led her to refuse to marry him.


Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her
saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before
they were yours, they were mine.'


This is how the human brain often works when our status changes.
Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who
was always by their side in the most painful situations.


Life Is a Gift


before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who can't speak.


you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone
who has nothing to eat.


you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone
who's crying out to GOD for a companion.


before you complain about life - Think of someone who died
too early on this earth.


you complain about your children - Think of someone who
desires children but they're barren...


you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or
sweep - Think of the people who are living in the streets.


whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who
walks the same distance with their feet.


And when
you are tired and complain about your job - Think of the
unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your


before you think of pointing the finger or condemning
another - Remember that not one of us is without sin.


And when
depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on
your face and think: you're alive and still



Mind your language

11the younger generation just love to, dance moves, and most obvious slangs.

But my dearly beloved, may i caution you to at least look up the word first before using it. IF the word is vulgar.....It not only taint your image but also give the hearers a very bad impression of a Christian. A BAD TESTIMONY!

Take for example this word that is so often on the mouth of youngsters, using it to mean "nonsense' and another to imply "very"

The words "Cr*p" & "d*rn"

and the dictionary gives you:

1   /kræp/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [krap] Show IPA noun, verb, crapped, crap⋅ping.

11EASTER ..its all about Jesus

It’s all about Jesus
It’s all about the way he changed our lives
It’s all about Jesus
The power of his blood can’t be denied

It’s all about Jesus
It’s all about the covenant he made
It’s all about Jesus
Victorious he rose up from the grave

It’s all about Jesus
Wearing every sin at Calvary

It’s all about the gift of love he gave
It’s all about Jesus
Precious lamb of God us was slain

Repeat Chorus


Since these 4 characters are frequent visitors to this youth blog, I would like to share a story abt them.

This is a little story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.

Somebody got angry about that because it was Everybody's job.

Everybody thought that Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it.

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done

Where do you stand??

11 As Jesus' ministry began to unfold, His popularity continued to grow.
After having fed the five thousand with five barley loaves and two fish, the
multitude was ready to take Him by force and make Him king. (John 6:15)
Matthew recorded that Jesus sent the disciples away in the boat while He
remained and dismissed the crowd. (Matthew 14:22) Perhaps, they could have
easily gotten caught up in the excitement of the crowd. Though Jesus would
be King, it would not be in this way. Then as the crowds continued to
follow, Jesus tried to redirect their focus from physical things to the
spiritual. (John 6:22-65) Some of this teaching was difficult for many to
accept and therefore many turned away no longer walking with Him. (John

For Jesus' closest disciples (the Twelve) to have witnessed such a
following and then see so many walk away, had potential to impact their own
view of what was to come. What were they to make of it all? Witnessing
rejection can really take away the excitement when so much momentum seemed
to have already been building.

We read. . .
"(66) After this many of his disciples turned back and no longer
walked with him. (67) So Jesus said to the Twelve, 'DO YOU WANT TO GO AWAY
AS WELL?'" (John 6:66-67 ESV)

In spite of others, where did they stand? Would they be discouraged
enough to wonder whether or not it was worth hanging in there with Jesus?
Where was the success in such a picture? Now, Jesus knew who would believe
and who would not, as well as who of the Twelve would betray Him. (John
6:64) But did they themselves know where they stood?

For us to consider where we stand is important as well. To verbalize it
helps strengthen the resolve in our own minds and solidify our stand. Though
all others leave, would we remain?

Peter's response would have not only helped establish deeper roots to
his resolve, but also encourage the others.
"(68) Simon Peter answered him, 'LORD, TO WHOM SHALL WE GO? You have
the words of eternal life, (69) and WE HAVE BELIEVED, and HAVE COME TO KNOW,
that YOU ARE THE HOLY ONE OF GOD.'" (John 6:68-69 ESV)

For Peter there was NO OTHER OPTION! That is a great resolve for us to
share as well. Let us not even leave the door open a crack for ANY OTHER
OPTION. Having come to know that Jesus is "the Holy One of God" and
remembering it is only He Who has "the words of eternal life" should keep us
from turning away. May our following never end.
