Hey guys, I felt impressed to tell you a story about me. Well here it goes!! :)




Last year (2013) everything seemed to be going just perfect, until the last week of May...It's a really long story, so I'll shorten it a little. My friends' asked if these 2 people had ever said anything about them, and I didn't want to tell them, but they begged so I told them a few things. They promised not to tell them anything. So I told them a little bit more, and they again assured me that it would never be told to anyone. But....one day they told them and guess what I was the one who got in HUGE TROUBLE...the parents talked to me, and I told them I had said a few things, but apparently the girls had lied to them about a few things that were really bad...that I would NEVER EVER say. I was like Uh oh...but the parents believed me luckily and then they talked to the girls..the girls lied and the cried so it made me look like I was the terrible one. In the end the parents pretty much believed the girls, and I was so hurt. I would cry every night, because I felt really betrayed. Now I realize that I shouldn't have gossiped, but lesson learned :) I was sad for a while about that, and still to this day it makes me a little sad whenever I think about it. I forgive them now, but it took a long time for me to do that. Well anyways! 2 months after that I hurt both of my ankles. I was on crutches for a week and that made me really upset, because it seemed like trial after trial was coming and I didn't feel like I had any peace. It was hard for me, but this story ends happily, and it still continues on today! Since my ankles were hurt I couldn't do anything at all. I was beyond upset for a while. Then 3 weeks after I hurt my ankle I had it AGAIN so I was like UGHH. I wasn't very happy, which is pretty unusual for me as you know! Those people I was friends with (The ones I told the girls about) were then unsure of me, and they ignored me. I was upset because one of them was my best friend, and I felt upset because the girls had betrayed me, and the other people were so unsure of me, and they didn't talk to me. I was pretty upset for a while, but October 16 changed all of that, and it changed my life. I'm not even kidding it really did! On that day I was feeling overwhelmed with all that had been happening, I went on the computer as usual, and I never used to go on Youtube and listen to hymns but that day I felt strongly impressed to do so, so I did. I typed in "Come thou found of every blessing." I saw one version from it and it said by Chris Rice,I was like Hmm I'm not familar with him, but I'll give it a try! As soon as the song started playing I felt peace I had never felt in my entire life..then I started crying, but they were tears of joy. I started praying and I heard a voice saying "Everything is going to be okay, I've got you." I felt like God was so very near. I don't have words to describe how amazing I felt! After that I wasn't worried about those girls, or my ankles. All I could think about was how God helped me. I gotta admitt in the start of 2013 I wasn't close with God AT ALL, but that one day changed my life, and today I love God so much, and I always look forward to spending time with him, and going to church. He is the highlight of my life!! So you see, God can bring you to situations you hate, but then in the end it works out for good!!!! (Btw this is the short version of my story!) I hope this touched you, and maybe even gave you some hope. Happy 2014 friends! -Mercylove :)
Blessed Assurance! Jesus is mine!

Ok! It's a song called "Reaching Out." By the way, the strange format of the chorus is because that's what helps me remember kinda how the tune went while I was writing it!

-Reaching Out-
You've been calling me
To come to you
You've been urging me
To let go of my pride
To let go of my bitterness
To give everything to you

So God
I come
I come to you
with a broken heart
I come
To you
With these empty hands for you to fill
Cuz I know
That your love
Is reaching out to me
so I come
I come
To you

I have been sinning
Drawing away
From Your gracious love
I need your unfailing
Always reaching, here forever
Never changing, infinite love

So God
I come
I come to you
With a broken heart
I come
To you
With these empty hands for You to fill
Cuz I konw
That your love
Is reaching out to me
So I come
I come
To you

God I bring my empty hands
For you to fill
I bring my shambled life
For you to fix
God I bring my broken heart
I need you

God I bring my empty hands
For you to fill
I bring my shambled life
For you to fix
God I bring my broken heart
I need you

I need you

So God
I come
I come to you
With a broken heart
I come to you
With these empty hands for You to fill
Cuz I know
That your love
Is reaching out to me
So I come
I come
To you
You don't have to be Goliath to succeed, Little Davids can succeed, too :)

Sorry, it's been a long time. I guess my doubts were whether God was really there. I have been bullied alot and I wasn't sure whether I really wanted to live. This story helped ALOT. I guess it kinda boosted me over that hump.
And could you pray for my brother? I think he's drifting away form God.
