This my favorite song in the whole wide world because it says what happens to many of us each day. We feel alone because we cannot see or feel God in a certain time of need but we need to remember that he is always there no matter what we think or what we feel. In Viginia while I lived there, Fabi(Fabiola, a friend of Kaitlyn and me.)and I once listened to this song by Barlow Girl almost 4 times in a row. We cried and really got into the mood. It makes me feel sooooo lucky to know that I will always have someone watching over me and even better to know that He is sooooooo great and that He will always love me unconditionally. Here is a passage that i had found on one of the bookmarks that I own...
One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the LORD. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the LORD. When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life. This really bothered him and he questioned the LORD about it: "LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me." The LORD replied: "My son, my precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."(Footprints: Mary Stevenson)
I love this so much! I try to readit every time that i am in a hard situation wheter it is someone that is being mean to me or even when i am just nervous about something. God has most likely carried me more thatn 100 times in my life and i know that i am very lucky to have him:) Here is something that i might be of some intrest to you. I think it is really cool.Please read unil the very end or you won't get the scoop:):):)
Genesis 5 is a rather boring chapter in the Bible. It is one of those chapters that is often skipped because of all of the begats. However, there is something very interesting hiding just beneath the surface; and unless you know it’s there you’d never see it. So let’s take a close look at these otherwise overlooked names and their respective meanings. The following I give credit to Chuck Missler.
The first name, Adam, comes from adomah, and means "man." As the first man, that seems straightforward enough.
Adam's son was named Seth, which means "appointed." When he was born Eve said, "For God hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew."
Seth's son was called Enosh, which means "mortal," "frail," or "miserable." It is from the root anash: to be incurable; used of a wound, grief, woe, sickness, or wickedness. (It was in the days of Enosh that men began to defile the name of the Living God. )
Enosh's son was named Kenan, from which can mean "sorrow," dirge," or "elegy." (The precise denotation is somewhat elusive; some study aids unfortunately presume an Aramaic root synonymous with "Cainan.") Balaam, looking down from the heights of Moab, employed a pun upon the name of the Kenites when he prophesied their destruction.
Kenan's son was Mahalalel, from mahalal, which means "blessed" or "praise"; and El, the name for God. Thus, Mahalalel means "the Blessed God." Often Hebrew names included El, the name of God, as Dani-el, "God is my Judge," Nathani-el, "Gift of God," etc.
Mahalalel's son was named Jared, from the verb yaradh, meaning "shall come down." Some authorities suggest that this might have been an allusion to the "Sons of God" who "came down" to corrupt the daughters of men, resulting in the Nephilim ("Fallen Ones") of Genesis 6.
Jared's son was named Enoch, which means "teaching," or "commencement." He was the first of four generations of preachers. In fact, the earliest recorded prophecy was by Enoch, which amazingly enough deals with the Second Coming of Christ.
The Flood of Noah did not come as a surprise. It had been preached on for four generations. But something strange happened when Enoch was 65, from which time "he walked with God." Enoch was given a prophecy that as long as his son was alive, the judgment of the flood would be withheld; but as soon as he died, the flood would be sent forth. Enoch named his son to reflect this prophecy. The name Methuselah comes from two roots: muth, a root that means "death" ; and from shalach, which means "to bring," or "to send forth." Thus, the name Methuselah signifies, "his death shall bring."And, indeed, in the year that Methuselah died, the flood came. Methuselah was 187 when he had Lamech, and lived 782 years more. Lamech had Noah when he was 182.7 The Flood came in Noah's 600th year. 187 + 182 + 600 = 969, Methuselah's age when he died.It is interesting that Methuselah's life was, in effect, a symbol of God's mercy in forestalling the coming judgment of the flood. It is therefore fitting that his lifetime is the oldest in the Bible, symbolizing the extreme extensiveness of God's mercy.
Methuselah's son was named Lamech, a root still evident today in our own English word, "lament" or "lamentation." Lamech suggests "despairing." (This name is also linked to the Lamech in Cain's line who inadvertently killed his son Tubal-Cain in a hunting incident. )
Lamech, of course, is the father of Noah, which is derived from nacham , "to bring relief" or "comfort," as Lamech himself explains.
Now let's put it all together:
Mahalalel--------The Blessed God
Jared------------Shall come down
Methuselah------His death shall bring
Noah-------------Rest, or comfort
“Man is appointed mortal sorrow but the blessed God shall come down teaching that His death shall bring the despairing comfort.” Here is a summary of God's plan of redemption, hidden here within a genealogy in Genesis!
Now i think that is amazing! Barlow Girl video again!!!!
I am a musical addict. I am completely obbsessed with singing and i have just started playing the guitar yet i am pretty bad at the time. Someday I either hope to be a singer or a writer. I have started at least 10 writing projects but i have abandoned them all except the one i am working on now which so far has 34 pages, my personal new record.
I am not what you would call popular in school but no one hates me. I am pretty much in the exact middle and i try to be nice to everyone even if some of the completely get on my nerves.
