Brighton. last night reminded me of my first year of camp. i was 12 going into the 7th grade. it was the last night of camp. darin caroll was the speaker and his words changed my life. i gave my life to Jesus that friday night. i sat there and cried my eyes out. i bawled. last night was the first time ive cried like that since that night at camp. again, the feeling is not something i can explain other than simply saying that its the best feeling ever. i dont like to cry, but it feels good sometimes, especially at times when God is dealing with me and when im crying out to Him. it reminds me that He is with me and that He does hear me. i guess it kind of reminds me that He feels my pain too. so ive come to the conclusion that last night was a sign from God without a doubt. i feel like He was telling us that we need to get ready for Him. we need to get ready for what Hes going to do in us as a youth, a church, and as a person. we need to prepare for the things Hes going to pour out on us on these last days. God is preparing us for something huge, mainly the youth i think. He is getting us ready for war. not just a war with the world, but a war with the devil. it felt like last night, He was humbling all of us because if we arent humble and willing to give up everything, then He wont use us or work through us. all i could think about last night was Brighton, my first camp, and the outro to the song "Let the Flames Begin" in the outro, she sings "Father, oh Father, oh Father. Father, well are You ready? Wont You let it begin? Cause i am here now, i want to dance in the mighty palm of Your hand!" and last night, He really did let it begin. i feel as though i can take anything the devil throws at me. but, i wont get a big head about anything. i will continue to rely on God because He alone is my strength and without Him, i am nothing, nor do i have or own anything. I want God to use me in any way possible. i am willing to give it all up. i am ready for the war ahead. i am ready for the road God has for me. are you ready for the road God has for you? are you willing to give it all up? i hope so, if not. GET READY NOW. listen to the song "let the flames begin"

this video is amazing. its the outro to "miracle" by Paramore. i love how she praises God with her songs. Theres another song called "Let the Flames Begin" and heres the link for that one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJc4zUUewCY (at the end, its called the outro, and hayley-the lead singer-says this "father, oh father, oh father, oh father. Father, i am ready. wont You let it begin.cuz i am here now, i want to dance in, the mighty palm of Your hand" is that not powerful or what?)
the fact that a group that is world wide known and they are Christians and they praise God like this with no shame is AMAZING!!!! Hayley openly praises God by lifting her hands and her lyrics. Not all of her songs are like this, but the ones that are, are powerful. I love the passion she has, well not only her, but the band. Hayley Williams is truely my role model. and Paramore is my favorite group. Thank God for bands like them :)
