"Playing away..."

Tuesday, April 20, 2010


It's funny how no matter how old you are, you still have insecurities. You may seem like the most confident person in the entire world, but inside those insecurities still linger. I have tons of insecurities. Lots of things go through my mind all the time. It sometimes can absolutely bring you down and totally make you feel depressed. It's important to remember though that the insecurities that you think about aren't what defines you, and most of the time those insecurities are lies. Hearing Alison speak a couple of weeks ago really spoke to me, and it spoke to a lot of the youth too. God didn't create you so you can feel down and insecure. He created you so you can love others and live life with joy and happiness. Sure there will always be those days where you just feel like crap, but through it all, you should stand up against the accuser and rebuke him.

1 Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him. 2 The LORD said to Satan, "The LORD rebuke you, Satan! The LORD, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?"

- Zech 3:1-2

I was reminded about this again and it was weird because there I was playing hockey and all I could think about was this one thing. It wasn't hockey related, but it kept on lingering in my mind. Over and over in my head it kept on replaying "you're useless, you're useless, no one likes you, etc". The anger inside was starting to bubble up, and it kept on getting worse. Then I remembered something I read in Pslams. Psalms 4:4 reads "In your anger do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. Selah". Then right there, I just prayed and it felt like all the weight was lifted off my shoulders.

There are always going to be battles, hardships, sadness, but I guess it's important to stand up against it because after these battles, comes joy, happiness, and peace. So hang in there!!

I don't know who reads this....but hang in there! May God's peace fall upon each of you as you face those difficult times!

Here's a song that I just heard recently, and it's been stuck in my head...
