Just posting this real quick, if you followed me today, my subscribe button wasn't working properly but I fixed it. So you can just redo it and it should work!
Thanks and sorry for the problems!
Happy Memorial day everyone who is reading this! I really wish I could ask something like, “what is your family doing for today?”.... But I can’t.
Well actually I can, I’ll just probably never get the answer. Aaaaahhhhh!
Apparently Weebly still hasn't fixed the comment bug, *sighs*, they said they have no sort of time frame of when it will be fixed so...no comments. *sighs* (I really like comments ;) )
So yeah….just thought I’d say that…. And happy memorial day again!
Aaaand, I guess I’ll give you a song to listen to, so that makes everything better right?
Okay, don’t let the name fool you-this is a GREAT book. That is, if you have any sort of sense of humor. If you don’t...weeeeell, you’ll probably not understand anything in this book and will probably have a horrible life, just sayin.
This book was written by Brandon Sanderson and is one of my favorites (if you don’t agree after reading it I’m disowning you).
So basically all you need to know is:
-Librarians are EEEEvil
-Everything you know about history is a lie
-your maps of the world are lies
-this is NOT a fictional book even though it is listed under fictional
-People with glasses are either evil, crazy, or a Smedry (which is pretty much the same thing as crazy)
-Authors are EEEEvil
-do not underestimate sand
-Smedrys are great at drawing fire (like, gunfire, and laser fire, and bombs, and anything else that wants to kill you or put you in a coma….).
-DO NOT SKIP TO THE BACK OF THE BOOK THE WORLD WILL END IF YOU DO.
When I was younger I only had a handful of actual books (and by that I mean, NOT “short story books”), out of those few were the books Little House on the Prairie and the Chronicles of Narnia. I would read these series over and over and ooover again.
I hadn't read the Narnia books in a very long time now, so a little time back, after we finished watching the Prince Caspian movie for my younger siblings, I decided it was about time to dust off the Chronicles of Narnia and read them again.
So the other day I finished the last book, (“The Last Battle”), and I couldn’t resist from getting on here and talking about it. Because, who DOESN'T like to talk about BOOKS?
Almost two years ago the clouds of a great storm began to build in our bright sky. Little did we know, as we stood in that before the storm bright light, that for over a year to come we would be pelted with rains and winds too strong for us to bear alone, little did we know in that serene time that the thunder would crash through our peace and shake our faith.
Nearly two years ago we met some children, who we felt God wanted us to take in to be apart of our family. So we brought them into our home, we planned to adopt them from the very beginning. They were a sibling group of three. I won’t go into specifics, but it has been a hard ride. Through this God has been teaching us so much, there were many ups and downs, many twists and turns. God has taught us to love more, He has taught us patience, and much more, but there is one lesson that can be found ruling throughout this whole storm.
That is the lesson of trust.
To trust God and lean on him, even though we can’t see what lies before us.
Many a struggle has come of these months, God has brought us through a long and difficult road. It seems that right when we’ve got everything figured out and the weather is beginning to calm lightning strikes again.
And now I believe, this storm is approaching it’s climax. We cannot see what is ahead, our eyes are blind to the future-but our God’s eyes are ever watching. He holds tomorrow in His hand, and HE is working everything out for good-even if we don’t understand it. I can and will always say, my God is good always and forever, whatever may happen.
So anyway, during this time God just really brought to my attention some pretty well known Bible stories. Sometimes when a story is so well known, like David and Goliath, we find that we kinda overlook the just...wowness (yes I am aware this is not a word ;) ) of it. So right now I’m going to have you revisit some of the stories of trusting God that I have found very inspiring:
Howdy! Welcome to Lit Aflame - where the fire runs rampage and truth can't be quenched.
I have been thinking about starting a life blog/"Bible blog" for some time, but I have kept thinking that I'm too busy and will wait till I'm older and till I have more time.... On the one hand I felt like I really needed to start this blog, on the other...weeeelll, I shrank from talking about things in front of others-all those fears nearly everyone have at one point or another slowed me down for some time (such as "what if I sound dumb? what if I say something that is wrong or incorrect? People will think I just don't know what I'm talking about or that I don't understand because I'm young.)
But for these last few weeks I have come into the totally awesome discovery of other Christian's blogs -WHOA - right? Like, those actually exist? *mind blown*
Anyway, I had been browsing through website after website, blog after blog, they were all great-I especially loved the Christian writing blogs ('cause you know, writing=books -right?). So one day God kinda said, "if you wait until you're older you are going to live regretting not being a Light when you were younger-besides the longer you wait the least likely you are to actually start doing something."
...So here's the blog, I'm not sure if it's even going to be much of a success. But it won't be said that I didn't try.
The thing is, we are called to be Lights in this world of darkness, no matter our age. No matter how old or young we are, God can use us - He can use me-and He can use YOU.
1 Timothy 4:12 "Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity."
Oh, and by the way, on the matter of how I came up with the name, it was hard. See, I already had a name I liked-but then that name was taken! So I racked my brains (it kinda hurt) and thought of another and another-all taken (and they weren't even names that you would expect to be taken). And I asked God to show me the right name... well, I went through another already taken name-and came to this one, "Lit Aflame" which really, I think is fitting. Because my prayer for me is that God would light me aflame so that I may shine for Him, and my prayer for this blog is that through it (and whatever can be salvaged of my ramblings ;) ) others may be lit aflame for Jesus Christ. Because Jesus, is the reason life is worth living.
"Then said I, Ah, Lord God ! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.  But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.  Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord ."
SO if Jesus makes life worth living, why not live that life for Jesus?
