25th post, on the 25th day of December.


Merry Christmas, everyone :)
yay! today we remember the night on which the King of all Kings decided to come on earth, born in a manger. he was born to die. so that i can have life.
so beautiful!

i want to wish you all a wonderful and blessed christmas, full of joy and love (because you are all loved!) and good times with family and friends :)
here's a song i love by relient k,
"i celebrate the day" from their christmas album Let it Snow Baby, Let it Reindeer.

And with this Christmas wish is missed
The point I could convey
If only I could find the words to say to let You know how much You've touched my life
Because here is where You're finding me, in the exact same place as New Year's eve
And from a lack of my persistency
We're less than half as close as I want to be

And the first time
That You opened Your eyes did You realize that You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever

And so this Christmas I'll compare the things I felt in prior years
To what this midnight made so clear
That You have come to meet me here

To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me
In the hope that what You did
That you were born so I might live
To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me

And I, I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day pray for You to save my life

You've opened my eyes!

"In the darkness, God's light shines!"

HA! i don't exactly know how i am able to write to you in this moment, considering my hands are shaking and my heart is exploding in amazement and awe and joy and excitement!

ahhhhhh, so much is happening in my heart, in the hearts of those around me, and in the supernatural world!
i am quickly realizing how amazing, powerful, and important the connection to the supernatural world is! it is an essential component to living a christian life!
when you grasp the concept of the supernatural, you are TOTALLY woken up! your eyes are open, and you finally enter into God's world. 
this is when you become a total new human being, not living an earthly life, but one of the "above natural", one that totally lacks scientific explanation.
one that is totally engulfed, mouthed, kissed, swimming, covered into/of the SUPERNATURAL. 

God is supernatural.
when you accept Jesus into your heart, well guess what? you accept him into you :)
and wanna know something cooler? he's God
do you see where i'm going with this? ;)
when God's in you, you become SUPERNATURAL
you become the proof of something BEYOND nature, beyond SCIENCE.

your eyes are open to the world unseen and untouchable. you are entering the unknown, and this is when life truly begins

hold tight! because the ride will be intense
the supernatural is a world where the evil, where the devil is trying to trap, to steal, to kill, to destroy. us.
our role? fight! fight! fight! fight the sin, not the people. fight the hate, not the hater. fight the ignorance and injustice, not the ignorant
God has totally granted us his holy spirit! how freakin' amazing is that!? with his spirit in us, we are so filled with power! power to fight against the devil, to run this race. and share the victory! that has already happened: on the cross. we are just to join in the victory and freedom! 

and the simplest and most powerful way to break off the chains of sin and the grip of Satan on your life
is to love

God is love. and by loving people, you are welcoming him in. and as he enters in, he will totally break the demons away!

and the only way to walk away from hate, is to realize how gross and disgusting it is. how sin ruins, destroys, and makes you dirty. the only way to get rid of sin, is by hating it
"the first step to freedom and salvation is to be disgusted and grossed out by the sin in our lives."

Oh, God...how you love us. how you love us so so much. SO MUCH! 
SO FREAKIN' MUCH!

if you are in the midst of the supernatural, and don't realize it, are you ready to jump in?
and if you haven't experienced His love yet, are you ready to be transformed and totally taken by the love of God? 
here's my answer to you:  it's totally worth it.
