I Will Never Leave You

Penn Highschool is truly an experience. For real. You walk down the halls with 3,000 other people every day and most of them you don't see at all. There are a few things that are consistant however: cussing everywhere you go, and couples making out everywhere you look. I've never wanted to be associated with either of those things however when you here such crude language everywhere you go everyday, it's hard to block it all out. I have to constantly remind myself of Philipians 4:8 "Whatever is true whatever is noble Whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praise-worthy, think about such things"

And then there's the couples. If they're not making out, they're holding hands, hugging...etc. My point is there's couples everywhere. It's almost depressing walking down the halls alone. And i'm not even interested in a relationship. I find myself getting lonely for no reason. But then i remember God says "i will never leave you nor forsake you" and i take that to heart. I'm a visual person and lately when i get lonely i'll imagine God walking beside me, holding my hand, joking around, comforting me. And it works. I thank God so often that it's true, that i won't ever be alone because he is always with me. It's a miracle. I've done nothing to deserve his love, nothing to deserve the amazing sacrifice that he's paid! I'm in awe that God, who created the universe, would care even the slightest for me and yet he DIED so that i can live! How amazing is our God! And when i think about that i realize how blessed i truly am. I don't understand the things i've dealt with or that i'm dealing with now. But i know in my heart that He loves me and is with me every step of the way!!! and with that knowledge i am a rich person indeed :) Thank you father for giving me a reason to live!
