Experience Jesus

Experience taught me that denial brings comfort.
… Jesus demanded truth.
Experience taught me to reject pain.
… Jesus challenged me to embrace it.
Experience taught me not to trust.
… Jesus asked me to risk.
Experience taught me to expect rejection.
… Jesus said, “I love you.”
Experience taught me I had no value.
… Jesus paid his life for me.

    im tired.. why can’t I let go of the past.. of wanting to hold on to the simple existence.. or maybe the complicated lies of popularity.. of wanting a girl to be with.. of thinking that a girl will never want me because I don’t speak quickly or alot all of the time.. which makes me indecisive.. that she wont like me because I don’t like to run around forgetting nights… of falling over myself.. of laughing loudly because I don’t want someone else to feel bad.. of laughing so bad.. my souls runs out of my mouth..

    I like this post it made me smile in todays rain and thunder. Thanks for jesus so that someone wrote such words in honor of his ideal

    Lost Crow, you are young. What you are feeling is normal — and no, I am not belittling the angst and anxiety. I remember it too well.

    You will find somebody who is attracted to you for who you are — but she won’t be able to find you if you are acting like who you are not.

    I am glad you liked the poem. I wrote it myself.

    Lost Crow: There are many good people out in the world who will like you for who you are.

    I think in today’s society we meet so many people that we rush the process of finding others to be close to.

    The media likes to make us think the only people worth being around are giddy, loose, lacking in thought and self control. In the real world, people of quality and worth think just the opposite.

    Relax and get involved in things you enjoy and you will find people congregating to you. You will also be less self conscious.
