Angry at Someone? Want Revenge!
"What Matters" by Tonya Has someone made you mad? I mean really mad? Do you want to
get them? Want to hurt them more than they hurt you? --- WAIT! Why not
forgive them. How about putting yourself in their shoes. They may have done it
on purpose or they may not even be aware that have done anything at all. Even
if they did do it on purpose, rather than seeking revenge, forgive them. Ask
God to bless them. Yes, I know you don't want to inside - do it anyway! Ask God to help them. Image, if God got even with us
every time we did something wrong or that is against His way. YOU WILL BE
AMAZED at the result.
Teens Sound Off About What Concerns Them …
Here are three things we heard (not in any order or ranking):
Brandi says the number one issue to her and her friends is their relationships with parents, her brothers and sisters, her friends and even her school teachers.
How do these types of relationships affect you?
James says his friends all have questions about sex. At this age, sex is new and a great mystery and temptation. So many concerns -pregnancy, types of sex, protections, and just the awkardness.
Here's a great suggestion - abstinence. God's way is to save these special moments for the person you marry. So, when you are close to someone and your embrace leads you to want more - why not wait. It will make it that more special for you and your lifetime partner.
3) Alcohol, Drugs, and Highs
Jackie says she believes many teens face the issues with attending parties and hanging out with friends who deal or use some type of drugs.
The truth is: 1) drugs are illegal and can get you into serious trouble, 2) Drugs are a lie - they get you high then they get you hooked and then they can kill you, 3) Provides only a temporary high or feeling of freedom - rather than the exciting lasting high that the joy and freedom of the Lord will bring you.
When you're young and your life is waiting for you, everyday can be bright and new. When you choose to accept God's love for you and are willing to trust Him, you will find your life has meaning and purpose. Yes, there will be sad times, heartaches, and "things" will happen, but God will always be with you, hear every word you say to Him, and protect you and love you even when you do things that you should not do.
