How awesome would it be if we as Christians (Christ followers) Started changing lives? What if we got the name of Jesus talked about more than Whitney Houston or Jennifer Lopez? I feel that if we took the time to spread the word, it would get out. I'm sure if any of you have been on facebook here in the past couple of days you have heard or read about the video against Joseph Kony. Some people made fun of it, some cried, and others took action by re-posting it. Possibly millions of people are going to watch that one video. Wow, what a world we live in. I support "Invisible Children" with all of my heart and I believe this man should be stopped at any cost. A change is happening, and people all over the world are taking action. All because ONE man believed in something so much that he would stop at nothing to make a change. This guy saw hurting hearts, and he saved those kids. I see hurting hearts everyday. No, the hearts I see haven't been through what those kids have... Those kids are facing physical battles but We are all facing a battle we cannot see. Us, as well as those kids, are facing a spiritual battle. A brutal war raging all around us. But just like that young man standing up for those kids, we had a young man stand up for us. He Not only stood up for us, but He died for us. Lay down His young life knowing that most wouldn't even care some day. If only you believe and have faith in one Man who walked this earth, You will live for eternity. Let's stop preaching at people by telling them what they do wrong, and let's love them no matter what.
By showing grace
I believe Kony will be stopped. I think that he will pay for what he has done. He is probably the most famous villon in the world right now. We are all playing our part as superheroes by making this bad guy famous. Let's make a change for Christ just like invisible children did for them. I will make a change, even if it means standing alone.

All creation hangs on to every word that God says. The bible says in Job that the stars sang for joy. The stars sang!!! And the bible says somewhere else (i cant remember where) that the ROCKS cry out and will proclaim the glory of God. Isn't it crazy how something that we believe can't even talk can sing praises to God? Isn't it even more crazy that the very beings that God created to worship and praise him reject him daily? I wonder what it will take for all of mankind to realize that God is GOD. Actually, i know what it will take... Eternity separated from Him. When he speaks the earth moves. It's so different from when we speak. Most of the words that come from our lips are negative words that tear down. And normally we hear with selective ears. Only hearing the things that will benefit us in some way. I know a few different people who feed off of the sympathy the get from others. They strive for defeat so they can hear "I'm so sorry" or "bless your heart". Doesn't that sound crazy!?! I know that on some days I am the same way, so I am not saying that I have overcome these Things. I'm just sayin'. I LOVED the movie "The Help" In the movie Aibileen Clark was a slave for a wealthy family. She put into the family in so many ways including raising their small baby girl. Through out the movie she was that little girl's main encourager! She reminded her daily of how important she was and how much she was loved. I think one of my most favorite quotes from any movie ever is one from that movie. "You is kind, you is smart, and you is important". Makes my heart so happy. We need to be like aibileen and put away our snooty attitudes. We need to be sweet. And encourage! For real. Because one day we will look back and kick ourselves for the words that we chose to speak. Choose to speak truth y'all. :) word.

My name is Hannah. I love to write and play the guitar. I am sure nobody will ever get to read the journals I keep, so I thought this would be a good way to get my ideas and thoughts out there. I want to change the world by showing love under any and all circumstances. I believe in big dreams, and big hair. :) I talk to God daily about all of my problems. I also try to be as real with people as I can. I think being "real" is the only way to get through to the heart. Some people call me "Blunt" But honestly, I don't mind very much. I hear that being blunt is a good thing these days. Laughing is the best and I believe everyday is a gift. We all have things we can learn from others, we just need to take the time to listen. I am so excited about this blog so please read along if you'd like.
