I have a prayer journal that I keep. In it, I write my prayers and letters to God. I tell Him everything that's going on, and I keep nothing from Him. I planned to keep this journal strictly for God's eyes only, but I decided to do something I've never done before. I decided to share one of my entries here, on this blog, with you. I promise you that this entry hasn't been modified or edited whatsoever, and is exactly the way I wrote it in my journal.
Here it goes.
"(God's grace) It teaches us to say 'No' to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope---the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ."
Please help me. I live in a world that's full of disgusting, dark, & evil things. I live in a world full of broken, hurt & empty people. I live in a world full of lies & impure things. It's hard to stay pure in a world like this. Please guide me & teach me to be pure & say 'no' to worldly things. Music is a very big part of my life & is one of the things that can harm me. Give me the righteous initiative to get rid of any trash I'm listening to. I already deleted all of my All Time Low songs. God, help me also to stop thinking green. I improved compared to before, but I want everything unwholesome & impure out of my mind. I want to be filled with pure, holy, righteous, & pleasing things to You.
I don't want these worldly things to get in the way of my calling & my relationship with You.
I wanna get closer to You, God. Haven't been feeling close to You lately, for some reason. Help me fish out whatever's keeping us apart. I wanna fall in love with You all over again.
Love You so much!
There you have it. One of my journal entries that I've never shared with anyone in my entire life, and I just posted it here on blogspot for the whole world to see. I might post another entry again sometime, but don't count on it.
