God is with you. You probably always hear that if you go to church regularly, or have a friend that is a Christian, or even in general everyday lives. Sometimes it sounds a little cheesy. “Is he really?” Or, “Yeah sure he's with me.” Do we ever really stop to think about it? I want YOU to think about this: Think about how long you've lived. Now, think about all the sins you've done. NOW think about all the times you've asked for forgiveness. Even when you sinned, or asked to be saved, GOD ALWAYS LOVED YOU!!!
A couple nights ago, my family and I had the ‘First annual Romero Family Talent show’ and ‘Ximena inc.’ was a proud sponsor of it…Lol. And we had a whole bunch of different acts from my brother, my dad, and myself. Before we had started, I had decided that we would have a worship segment and I would sing. I sang a few songs, then I began singing, ‘What a beautiful name it is’ by Hillsong(If you haven't heard it, you need to hear it!). During the song I got sentimental, but I kept it in. I would close my eyes and sway to the music, while singing into the fake microphone I made out of construction paper. When the song was finished, I burst into tears. I went to my mom and hugged her. I could not stop crying. My parents kept asking me why I was crying, but every time I tried saying it, I would think about it more and it wouldn't come out. Every time I thought about it, I cried more and more. I finally almost calmed down and said, “I was singing to God.” It was true. I told them more about it. There were angels all around me, even my angel friend, Abigail (Long story). And we were in heaven and a light was in front of us and it was God. We were singing and praising and crying. And at that moment I thought about how special it was that God still loved me and cared for me. I knew God had a plan for me.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” -Jeremiah 29:11
My dad put songs and we sang to him, and I praised him. I thought, “These aren't tears of sorrow, but tears of joy.” I told my mom I couldn't stop crying. Finally I calmed down. And I knew God had dwelled in my soul. He had been there all along. He LOVED me. I felt fresh and renewed, like I had just taken a shower. If you haven't already, get close to God, and talk to him like your best friend.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” - John 3:16
Remember, God LOVES you! I encourage you to tell at least one friend that is not in your family and tell that God loves them. Try for it to be someone you don't really know.
See you next time! And remember to send me the requests for prayers or crafts, I would really appreciate it!
Ximena Romero. ;-)
