We had to write this essay for school, called Law of Life
You had to chose a quote or something of that sort that you 'live by' and write about a personal experience concerning it...
Well, for me, when doing essays like this, it's always hard to pick just one 'Law of Life' so I chose many... I think I actually writing on more than one, becaue it give you a wide variety to write on.... :)
Let me know what y'all think??
Laws of Life:
- Words are words; you gotta shake them off like water off a ducks back. –Jamie Campbell (My guitar teacher)
- Just remember what I told you, there’s so much you’re living for. –Third Day (Tunnel)
- You’re not guilty anymore, you’re not filthy anymore, I love you Mercy is yours. You’re not broken anymore, you’re not captive anymore, I love you Mercy is yours. –Aaron Keyes (Not Guilty Anymore)
- You are more than the choices that you’ve made. You are more than the sum of your past mistakes. You are more than problems you create. You’ve been remade. –Tenth Avenue North (You Are More)
-We’ve all gotta remember that there is hope for the hopeless, and there is rest for the weary. –Mac Powell
LAW OF LIFE :
Everybody’s been there and everyone’s node that. There always comes a time where you say something to someone, dropping them to their low point. People will be people’ there’s no denying that, but we all have to be strong. There’s a God who died so that you could be forgiven, so that there’s more than just the bad. Now, I’m not writing to preach or to give my story of Salvation, but to simply say that there’s so much more in the world, that it all doesn’t have to be crummy, that there is a good to every situation.
In my own life I’ve been faced with an abundance of situations that made me think “I could never be good enough” or “I’m not doing as much as I could”. For example, when one of my close friends tried to take their life, I did what I could, but, couldn’t I have done more? I might could have prevented the thought of it, let alone the cutting itself. There’s always more I feel could have been done, but why worry, I saved them, and they are still alive, and it’s because of what I did. No one is guilty, filthy, broken, or captive if we allow God to take over. If we let him work through us, things might be a little better.
I’ve also had to face hurtful doings, whether it be physically, mentally, or emotionally. People have said things that have made me think “what’s the point?” In the midst of any pain or hurt, I always remember, for myself, that words are words, and you have to shake them off like water off a ducks back! It’s really that simple. Someone I look up to greatly gave me that bit of advice, and since then, I’ve found that it’s so true! If someone says something hurtful, I know that I’ve got God on my side and that I know who I am so I shouldn’t let other decide that for me.
We are all human, we know good when we see it and we know bad. Why not lets start praising the good, and instead of ignoring the bad, resolve it? We’ve all got to remember that there is hope for the hopeless and there is rest for the weary. Just this Christmas season, the people at my church, including myself, were involved in our Great Bike Giveaway, where we had the opportunity to bless those in need. We were able to show them that there is hope, because there is so much more we’re living for.
We are all so much more than we put ourselves up for. There’s so much that we haven’t seen, so much we have not done. There’s more we would set our focus on, it’s more than words on a page, or the lyrics in a song. We’ve got to stand tall, be strong, MOVE, and make a change!
