Thinking

    So today I was thinking that the informative book I am writing on abortion really isn't a novel I should pause it for now and write an actual novel since it is nanowrimo. My novel is now called Dawn of Faith. This is a very quick rough and not finalized synopsis of the book:

"Book idea- a young girl that lives in a country that persecutes Christians and since she is a Christian they put out a warrant for her. But before she gets captured she wants to make sure there is enough evidence to convict her for being a Christian. Sh begins to graffiti crosses around her neighborhood in [?].  every day at noon she broadcast to the entire town and though neighboring the message of God each day having a new lesson. After a few weeks of being on the run the young girl is running down an ally away from the police when she is quickly swept to the side into a dark building. Once in the building and the militants pass by a young man begins to talk to her and ask questions about God he had never heard of God until he heard her  broadcast and has so many questions everyday she teaches him more and more about God they go on the run together and begin to hold services as they move across the country together."
After this month I will continue my informative book but for now this is my project. Even though it's not that big of a need I think that a good christian book is a necessity in todays world so I'll give it a shot.


Book update

Today I thought I would share my favorite verse I have used in my book so far and that is

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I concentrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5 ESV)
This is my favorite verse because it encompasses almost my entire point and it is also my opening verse. this is the first words from the bible people will see when they open my book and I am completely ecstatic about that thought!

Inspiration

    Today I was getting a little behind on my personal goal for nanowrimo so I decided to go on Facebook for a little bit and I came across this verse:


This really made me start thinking about how I had asked God to give me his words so that I may share them with the world and if I stopped writing now I would be doing the exact opposite of sharing his word. God gives us each a way to be a light for him in this world and just maybe this is mine. If not there are other ways for me to share Gods grace and I will find that way. 
  
Update: It seems as though the Lord really wants me to widen the use of his gospel even more in my writings which he has influenced greatly. I had asked my mother earlier today what I should read next in my bible even though she thought she had said Ephesians I heard Philippians and I think this happened because God wanted to show me this verse (Philippians 1:27): "Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ...".  To me saying that we should let our words flow from the bible and shine a light towards God.

Favorite Verse November

  Well today I started participating in nanowrimo as you might have seen in my last post and I found a verse today that leads me to believe that God truly has given me the thought to write the facts about abortion to get people to start thinking. That verse is Jeremiah 1:7 which reads

 "Do not say 'I am only a youth'; for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak."

  Though the Lord was talking to Jeremiah at that time and place I think this is a message to the christian youth of the world to speak what is right and true. I hope that the Lord will guide my words and aid me in discovering his hopes for our future world. If you have something the Lord is urging you to say but you don't know who to tell please comment below and together we can make the words known.

I'm Writing A Book

My book is Pro-Information: A Look At Abortion you can read my synopsis by going to nanowrimo.org and searching for the username ErinMLife. Thanks for all of the support I will be uploading what I have written at the end of the month.

Religion

Over the past months there has been a lot of war on religion and I feel like each day we are loosing more and more sense of not only our religion but general morals. As a Christian this is very disheartening because I strive to be a light in this dark world as do many others and it makes us feel as if we are not doing our job. Scrolling through my news feed on facebook I see many things that prove that we our abusing our freewill and will soon feel the wrath of our choices. 

Just today I found an article about the Pope wanting us (Christians) to learn how to coexist with muslims; how can you coexist with a group of people that want to see you suffer and die. I for one can not get my brain around this thought. This is not just based off opinion either, there have been many christians in the middle east that were told to convert to islam or die; there is one woman on trial today that will be hung for her faith.

Which brings me to two things 1) would you die for your faith? I for one would no matter how cruel the death. 2) If you were arrested for being a Christian would there be enough evidence to convict you? If you are having trouble answering this for yourself think about it; do you openly talk about the Lord, do you invite others to walk in Jesus' name, do you talk to God and lastly do you live life the way God wants you to? I'll let you think about those for awhile but to continue on let's just talk about this. Jesus Christ died on a cross for your sins he bore all of the punishment for you and he says that even if it were for even just one of us he would die the same death again. This is just 2 questions of many that will test your faith, God gives us hardships so that we may prove that we trust and believe in him.

We must also question our morals there is almost no sense of right or wrong these days. Everyday women are killing their unborn children and everyday people are stripped of their basic human rights. Rights that us Americans (or other developed countries) take for granite each day and actually think exist but if you really think about it are all of your rights, our God given rights, really in tack. There are so many things wrong with todays society but in order to change the world we must change our selves and make these wrongs seen. We must change ourselves in order to be a city on a hill, a hill the whole world will look up to and strive to become.

Prepper=Afraid uhmmm no.

Am I a prepper? 

Yes

Am I afraid?

No

   So as I said above I am a prepper most people assume that we (preppers) as a community are panicked or living in fear. While the majority of us are just going with the flow trying to live our normal lives. In my free time I can, fish, garden, and anything that can ensure my survival in the future if something were to happen. But I live my life every day knowing I am safe.

   Another assumption is that we are "fear-mongers"; to me this is the exact opposite of what we are about every day on the news we see people being killed, disease spreading rampant through the world, and what do us preppers do? We tell you and aide you in preventing these awful things from happening to your family. 

If we secluded our thoughts to just preppers in America; they are probably the most fearless, patriotic, strong, courages and opinionated people you would ever meet. to me these are all very good traits because those are a few of the things I strive to be in my every day life. A lot of people who do read this are going to say she's just been brain washed to think this but no you have been brain washed not to think that way. I've grown up in a conservative household that has encouraged me to learn facts from every where, use reasoning and go my own way. So if that's what you consider brain washing then yeah I'm brain washed and I'm proud of it. My opinions and thoughts are what I hold true to and it would take an over abundance of evidence to change where I stand.
