your little thing you wrote on the top of your site got me thinking. what do people think of me thats why I have been asking people. it could help me know what to work in my life.

gogeph said...

work on in my life

sarah said...

I never thought of it that way. hmmm, that gets me thinking.

gogeph said...

I try to look that all tings and think what do other people think of it, what do other people think of me, and I try to look at everything as making me stronger. like trial and error. make a mistake learn from it.

I like looking at history and reading their mistakes and learning that whatever they did, didn't work. I also have to remember that Chelsea is is watching me, and if she says "lets listen to this or watch that, its ok" and I know its wrong. Like watching triple x wasn't such a good idea and she still asks me why did I watch it when I knew it was wrong. I really "dragged the Lord's name in the mud" that night and she remembers. And I feel, well stupid sort of. Guess I will learn from that mistake.

sarah your honesty is a inspiring. thats not sarcasum.

gogeph said...

forgiveness good for the soul, innocents even better.

sarah said...

I've never had someone tell me that my honesty was inspiring,thx. When I was younger (and not so young) I was really good a lying. My mom never really knew if I was telling the truth or not. Sometimes I would get in trouble--and I had told the truth.

I have a great many times then after, I hated my self. my life.. its.... my life before salvation and early in it looking back made me hate self a lot. by Gods hand and grace he helped me. God used me in one of my friends at mooseriver camp, after say four years I saw him again and he said that I got him to look at the bible more than just someting to read and reading it brought him to salvation. God sometimes use strange people. hehe

sarah said...

Before I was saved I sometimes wondered why am I here and I really hated myself. And I have deliberately lied after I was saved and it was good to be forgiven, by Him and who I lied to. I hope someday God will use me like that, perhaps in Chelsae. but sometimes I wonder if I just get to plant and somebody else gets to see the harvest. Know what I mean?

gogeph said...

yes I do. my friends don't really care about a thing I say because its coming from a friend. no one important. the sort of friend attitude people have when you've been friends this long. I hope and pray that someone will be able to talk to them, bring them to the word and God open their hearts.

You both spur me on and encourage me. Where were teens like you when I was your age? Not living near me, that's for sure. I was the "bad" preacher's kid people joke about. And I liked being bad. I would have been badder if I hadn't cared so much about my dad's reputation.

Sarah, I appreciate your humility in admitting failure and your determination to get up and move on.

Gogeph, I think of you that here's one young person who is trying to be a real man, one who follows God and not the crowd. I'll tell you what else I think in about ten years.

Cathy said...

One more thing, Gogeph: Read 1 Corinthians 16:13, and read what Matthew Henry says about this verse in his commentary. If your dad doesn't have Matthew Henry, get ours from the church library.

When you're done, write me a report that I can read ten years from now. :)

gogeph said...

I don't like reports sry. but I guess I can try.

gogeph said...

thank you for the encouraging, I just hope I can keep it more than just words but a reality. practice what you preach.

Cathy said...

Gogeph, I wasn't totally serious about you writing something for me. What I meant was that it is good to set goals for yourself, and sometimes writing them down helps to solidify them in your thinking. When they're in your thoughts, they are more likely to be in your behaviour.

That's why journal writing can be good. Not "this is what I did today" but "this is what I'm reading and thinking, this is what I'm praying about, this is what God is teaching me right now." It can include everyday happenings as they fit into who you are and how you react to them.

It's a very personal thing to do, but hard because it can be embarrassing just to read over it later, let alone being embarrassing if someone else read it. But if you're brave enough to do it, it can be encouraging to see how you've grown spiritually over the years.

A journal also makes good source material for someone writing your biography after you die. :)
