This Couple Was Ruined … in the Best Way Possible. Watch and You May Be Ruined, Too

This Couple Was Ruined … in the Best Way Possible. Watch and You May Be Ruined, Too | Grade Nine Religon | Scoop.it
Wynne and Stephen had a plan for their lives. They'd get married and start a family 5 years later. But that's not quite what God had in mind. And they're so thankful He didn't.
britney mighty's insight:

This couple Wynne and Stephen had a specific plan of how they wanted there life to be. When they got married they set up a 5 year plan, that in 5 years they would start trying to have a baby. So when they tried that didn’t succeed. When the in this couple was working at her Church one of her mentors  daughters asked he why didn’t she have children and threw their conversation that it wasn’t out there plan about what they wanted but about their kid. She then asked if she ever thought about adoption she replied never. The whole time Wynne was talking about adoption Stephen thought it was just a phase he always wanted “he’s own family” and by that his own kids. But one the last day of the adoption conference he was at worship and he felt the Holy Spirit come over him and he felt like a orphan God showed him what an orphan feels like and he broke down in tears and for that day he was on board with adoption. They then stared searching for a country where they met the criteria. They met the criteria of Ethiopia they did the paper work and initiated they wanted a baby boy

 .They sent it out and got approved they were very excited. At the end of January they accepted a referral of this little boy they really felt as if God let them to this child. The child story was amazing he was left in a stairwell for 3 days and just a few months old. They thought about it for about a week and agreed that they wanted his pictures and his information. But tragically they got a call for their agency that they have lost him, they got another call that they have another referral of 2 children more than they were expecting. 2 months later they found out there were able to flight to Ethiopia for court, they were really excited that they wish was finally coming true .

 

Wynne and Stephen had a plan of what they had in plan  for their life not what God had .God had a plan for them like he does for all of us and they realized that by going threw that had time in thier life not being able to have a child to see that messgae god was trying to show them

This video has shown me that relying on our faith is very important. We all want our lives to be as perfect as we imagine them to be, but in reality we just have to put our lives into God's hands. Things may not go as we planned them to be, but our lives will always go according to God's plan. There may be some challenges we have to face along the way, but after those struggles everything becomes clearer and we realize that how our lives turned out to be isn't as bad as we made it out to be.

He Blew Us Away on American Idol … Now He’s Speaking Up About His Faith in God

He Blew Us Away on American Idol … Now He’s Speaking Up About His Faith in God | Grade Nine Religon | Scoop.it
Jason Castro isn't your typical pop star. After watching this video, you'll be glad he isn't.
britney mighty's insight:

Jason Castro former American Idol contestant speaks about his relationship he has found with god. It was 80’d week and choose a song he knew would be different than anyone else would be doing it’s not your typical Pop song. He chose the song “hallelujah” even that word he knew was a special one meant for God, he knew it would make people feel and think. And for him to be able to say that word in front of millions of people “Praise my King “it was special to him. He talk about how there’s meaning behind the music there something bigger. Jason grew up in  Christian home he excepted Christ as a child .It until his sophomore year of high school his parents signed him up for church camp he didn’t want to go he wanted to stay with his girlfriend .He  went  that summer and found out that was the first time he really felt moved by God. He explained that it was really the music it got to him in a way it never had. He was intrigued by the message and that’s when he really dedicated his life to the teachings of Jesus. He knows now and devotes every day to Jesus that every day is an opportunity to get closer to him, that he knows he has a purpose. He came to peace with himself that working with for Gods glory doesn’t mean only singing church songs; god calls us to feel many emotions like love. American idol asked him “What are your life goals” he responded he wanted to be a loving father a faithful husband and a servant of all, he says the servant of all is a main for him.

 That what Jesus came to be and that what everyone is called to be and it’s to give out life to God, the people around us the good fight and what he’s here to do. And i think that should be everyone purpsoe.He know undestands what God called him to be and I think everyone will find that out in their purpose in life . Sometimes you dont find your path right away it takes time but in the end you understand all of what God as done for a reason.

 

God is our teacher and somtimes we would why he does thing we rush things that he wants us to wait for.God has a plan for all of us but we all have the same purpsoe to be a deveoted follower of Christ.

I strongly agree with your points Britney, this is a very inspiring video that shows us how God has a plan for everyone like you had stated. I like how you really went in depth with explaining this video thoroughly, furthermost how you touched the main reason behind this video. Everyone has a purpose and a reason if we don't understand it yet, everyone is needed and wanted. This video helps us to realize that we aren't worthless but important. I really think with society today people depict themselves are useless because they aren't perfect, but this video says otherwise. Jason Castro tells his touching story that unveils to everyone that we are worth more than a nickle. I really agree with your thoughts and your reflections on this video.

Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus || Spoken Word

You can preorder my new book, inspired by the poem, below! Amazon: http://ow.ly/jNA68 Barnes & Noble: http://ow.ly/jNA8t A poem I wrote to highlight the diff...
britney mighty's insight:

In this spoken word  this man talks about his love for Jesus and hate for religon . He brings up points about how religion puts up this appearce of perfection , that they mask there inperfections. That if we go to church thats what makes use good catholic , even though we partied the night before . He explains that the church isent a museum for good people but a hosptail for the broken, But we think people who go to church arent sinfull .Also that religion and jesus are two diffent things ones a man made invention (religion) and ones the work of god (jesus)

 

I think this can relate to a lot of people now a days .People thing just becsue they go to church every sunday makes them a good catholic , they think thats all they have to do .But what is the word of the lord your hearing every sunday if you dont actually undersatnd what your hearing.Some people think being catholic is acting a sertain way , its a way of life its understanding where you came from and the god you belive in .

 

I thought this spoken word was very intersting it made me think to myself am i a devoted follower of my faith or just a mask of what i think i am . It gave me another look of how my faith can be protrayed.

britney mighty's insight:

This video was made  by a guy named Dakota .In this video he talks about how short life is and that all the things he takes for granted . He realized how blessed he is , that even when you’re feeling low think about everything you cherish. Do little things like hug someone you love, make a friend with a stranger. Do things to the fullest and don’t care what others think. He also says if you ever been mean to someone tell them, If you like someone tell them and for the people that put you down screw them. He explains that sometimes we spend too much time thinking when we should just let things happen.

 

I found this video while scrolling through my Tumblr timeline  about a year ago and since then I’ve been sharing it with everyone I know. This video touched me in so many directions. Now a days we are too worried about keeping up with trends and forget to live. We forget to acknowledge the people around you and all the things  to be thankful for . God made everyone in his vision of us and as Dakota said in the video “Be yourself because nobody else can be “and its true know one on the face of true no one on the face of this earth is life you .Also he mention doing good deeds like holding the door open for someone and even if they don’t acknowledge you smile because you know in your heart that it was the right thing to do . I think that’s what God calls us to be to be the best we can and enjoy the life he has given us

 

All of us feel down at times but i think we need to realize life is short and we should carisht every moment we have beause we k=never knw when its gonna be takten from us . Theres a brighter side to everything and everything we do should be shaped in the love of god . And from the words of Dakota "Thatsthe thing about life ,you just gotta breath every moment in like its you last and never look back, never reget and alwasy Stay Happy :)

Identity SHORT FILM (Award Winning Inspirational Short)

***If you liked this short film, Follow me on Instagram @kjadames **** New Short film coming out soon. "Living in a world where everybody wears masks due to ...
britney mighty's insight:

This short film was created by a group pf students , it was made to show Don't let society define your Identity, or to tell you who you have to be.The whole school in this short film wears masks , to cover the person they really are. At the end of the film he girls mask cracks and she runs to the bathroom and is devistated .But she then realizes that she deosnt have to wear this mask anymore she finds out who she really is and talkes off her mask .


A lot of teens this day can get something out of this short film , we feel like sociaty tells us how we should look of act or be . But thats wrong we are who we are , we are what god wants us to be what we are ment to be .We all have our own persionality and values that make us who we are .The one this we shoould all have in common is out love and dedication to God.


I thought this shortfilm was very touching , it was interesting to see that this is what actually is happening in life to day . I wanted to share this becuuse i thought it could help other people see that its ok to be yourself , and be whoever and whatever you want to be .

I agree with Britney, teenagers today focus way to much on society's standards of how to act and look. As teenagers we all want to fit in, and not be seen as the "weird kid" or a "loser", so we all put on a "mask" to hide our true selves. if we all just acted like our own individual self there would be no worry about fitting in. The only thing we should be worrying about is how dedicated we are to God.
Aaron Alexander's comment, November 10, 2013 9:03 PM
I think that as teenagers this video is easy to relate to, and can prove to be very inspirational. This video is a great testament to society today and how we often only look at the outward appearance of others. Neglecting the fact that While outer beauty is all “NICE AND DANDY” inner beauty (I.e. you personality character/your attitude towards others) is far more important. I know this may be hard as outer beauty is the first thing we see as, we meet a new person and inner beauty can only be properly “determined” after you know someone for some time; but, this video has inspired me to take a new outlook on others and to put my best foot forward to try to “see people mainly from their inner beauty as opposed to their outer beauty.
Vincenzo Pissokas's comment, November 10, 2013 9:55 PM
I agree with Aaron's insight because people do look for what is on the outside more. Sometimes people wouldn't talk to others because of how they looked but they don't realize that we are all humans and should not be made fun of for that. If we take the time to get to know someone then we would see that.

The Lost Sheep (Spoken Word) || Nick Vitellaro

To book Nick for an event: http://ow.ly/i74GY This poem is by my good friend Nick Vitellaro. I first met Nick at a YL camp in 2012. He shared this poem with ...
britney mighty's insight:

In this spoken word Nick talks about being the lost sheep. He talked about finding himself , about not know who he is . He grew up with nice things , cool friends , but wasnet sure who he is . He didnt understnad why when he was at his weakest point where was god, so he began to turn to sin. He didnt want to face reality.But in a spring of hope he realized he was never lost , he referse of the crucifiction that Jesus took his sins away, that jesus switched places with him so he would be saved. He states that god takes away all sins, that he turned his mess into a message .

 

This can relate to anyone at some point in out life we feel lost we feel as if we do nothing but destroy . Some times we feel at the haredest times in out life God isent there for us, but in reality hes is right there beside us . God has a plan for all of us , and he puts us threw sertain things for a purpose we might not realize it but he does .Even when we sin god fogives us .

 

This spoken word really touched me because i have been through many hard times in my life , and at times i didnt like god i wounderd why he chose me for this to happen . I felt lost but in the end god found me and helped me to over come these challenges.
