Taking back the media.

It's about time the youth of today start taking back the media. Start taking back the music, and movie industry.

I don't know about you, but I'm not satisfied with the way things are. I'm not happy with the perversion, sexual immorality, and idolatry that is found everywhere in the media.

It's about time we start praying for a generation of christian filmmakers, and music producers to rise up and take over the perversion of the present culture of North America.

It's about time we said no. It's about time we said enough is enough. It's about time we said we don't want our young women objectified. It's about time we said we don't want our young men to think that violence and abusive characteristics are acceptable. It's about time.

I want to walk into the movie store and not have to worry about what kind of crap i'm gonna see if I rent a movie.

I want to be able to listen to music that glorifies God, and watch movies that are about building people up instead of making brokenness the norm.

It's about time we start to realize the impact that the media has on us, and say, this isn't normal. This isn't right. It's time to change.

It's time to claim back the nation of Canada, and it's culture, media, and creative expression.

It's time to start praying. I'm taking back the media.

In Jesus' name.

Stress reliever?

Worship relieves my stress. When I'm stressed out I'll go play piano, and sing some worship songs or whatever, and It totally gives me peace.

Like last night I went to youth, and I don't know, there was a whole ton of stuff that has happened this past week, and I was just ready to let it all go.

We sang "I'm trading my sorrows" And the lyrics of that song just proclaim the fact that you're choosing to be happy. You're deciding to TRADE in your sorrows, shame, pain, and sickness for the Joy of the Lord. It's so amazing..

Anyways, Me and Steph, my best friend, just were singing that song at the top of our lungs, jumping around, and just letting it all go.

I guess my point is, is that when I focus on Jesus, and who he is and what he's done in my life, the trivial problems in this world dissapear, and I know that I can make it through whatever comes my way.

This is a cool song.

The Weather matches my mood today
It's raining and the clouds are grey
And I'm not any closer to understanding you

It was nice on the day we met
The sun shone and I had bet
That something nice would come out of you

And I was right, but only for a while
I was wrong to expect more from you than a smile

So, Don't flatter me if you don't care
Cuz It won't matter next week when you're no longer there
I don't read between the lines anymore
Cuz i've messed that up several times before
So If you don't care, then don't flatter me

Don't you know you're playing with my heartstrings
Don't you know I'm fragile right now
Don't you know I'd rather you be real with me
So, just don't flatter me.

I know I've been doing a lot of short posts lately... but I feel that I must write these thoughts down as they come to me...This is my latest one...

Life isn't always about having everything figured out.
Trusting in God is a good thing.
Let him carry you, it'll be alright.
Over-analyzing is not good. Enough Said

I got my something exciting...

Just thought I'd let you know.

My story will be different from your's.
The plans for my life will be different from your's.
My experiences will be different from your's.
The things i'm interested in will be different from your's.
My appearance will be different from your's.
My accomplishments will be different from your's.

Why then, do I spend so much time comparing myself to "your's?"

It's futile...

Don't compare.. it's dumb.

Missing Out

So, I missed out on the Choral Fest Concert tonight because of NLS. Thankfully NLS wasn't that bad, but still. It was a sad thing. It made my day to be able to sing "He's Able" one more time at the choral fest rehersal though :). That song is my favourite, and it was just one of those "for old time's sake" sort of things...

The time that I had at the choral fest was super duper fun though, I just wish I could have been there for the whole thing...

Well tomorrow and Sunday continue my training to become a lifeguard, so I suppose that's both a good and a bad thing. But, life is filled with things like this, that you just have to do, even when it's inconvenient, so although I'm sad about missing out, I know it's just part of living.

The Small Things

Sometimes it's the small things that just get you down:

A sarcastic joke,
A song you've listened to too many times,
A mean comment,
Uncomfortable, yet equally beautiful shoes,
Lack of being outside,
Zero plans for the weekend,
No chocolate,
Annoying assignements
A friend who's away

Sometimes it's the small things that make you excited:

The blue sky,
A comment on blogger,
A letter in the mail,
A raisin biscuit from Tim Horton's,
A smile from a cute boy,
A cool passage of scripture,
Working with 'Paint'
A good book
American Idol

Sometimes it's the small things that make you happy:

Nail polish,
Talking with friends,
A simple compliment,
Warm weather,
Taking pictures,
A hug,
Gummy bears,
Flip flops,

I guess today just had a little bit of all of those mixed into one.
