Thoughtless, Thoughtful, Thursdays.

Here we go people, I have a blog. Go me! Their are but a few reasons why I am doing this. One, too share my likes and dislikes of this world. Two, to share some good, random, funny, or weird thoughts i might have. Three, to help with my writing skills. And lastly, to compete with my mom. Yep. She now has a blog as well (which is probably way better then mine, in the aspect of learning something), but i don't care! So please, follow me..not her :)

Alright, now that I have explained myself, we can move onto bigger and better things. Well, more important things at least. I think for my first post I should be a little serious, and actually talk about something useful, while using no sarcasm. Or attempting to. Hm, this is gonna be difficult.

Okay, well i thought i should share a bible verse and my thoughts on it. Because if you don't know me, I should let you know that I am a Christian. Completely sold out for God. No that does not mean I'm perfect. I'm far far from it unfortunately! But I am trying to be the best I can every single day. That's all you can do right? So I read in the book of Psalms a lot. (Er, Psalm not Psalms) And i stumbled across this verse. "You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light." Psalm 17:28. I don't know about you, but to me, that's pretty powerful. Let me say again with a little more emphasis. "You, O Lord, (the Creator of Everything! The Most High, the Most Holy!) Keep my Lamp (My Light, Myself, Everything that Defines me!) Burning (Burning for you, You keep me going). My GOD turns My DARKNESS into LIGHT. He turns my Sin, my Shame, my Past, my Regrets, Everything that I have ever Done or Said...into a Beautiful Light. He turns my nasty nasty Rags into amazing Riches. . Maybe you're thinking, "Well Rainy, isn't that a little to deep for a first post?" And yeah, maybe it is. But i think definitely its worth sharing. So why should I wait? God's pretty awesome. I already know that. But do you?

I promise my next post will be a funny one! Just wanted to share something cool, hope it got you thinking. :)



  1. I didn't think it was to deep for a first blog its a good verse and you gave good insight to a deeper meaning of it I hope to see more posts like this!!

  2. I Love this and I will follow both of you (just email me when a new one comes out).

    I'm so blessed that you are in my life. Rainy, I see such an amazing future for you as you strive to serve God and touch others.

    Love, hugs, kisses, and God's blessings..
