Oh Captain, My Captain.My heart broke today. There's nothing I can say. While he was indeed a stranger, Robin Williams meant a lot to me and was a part of the good things in life. He was a father to those who felt like they were a little different. He would say the things you wished the people around you would say.Oh Captain, My Captain.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you dearly for your kind heart, for all the joy you brought-- and please accept our deep apology for not seeing if you were feeling that same joy.
Farewell, Oh Captain, My Captain.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
And above all this, above all the people leaving much too soon...I ask that you do not lose hope.

Seeking the SaviorSeeking the SaviorSeeking the Savior3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Simeon [said], “Can I stay alive until I see him?”
The Magi [said], “Saddle up the camels. We aren’t stopping until we find him.”
The shepherds [said], “Let’s go…. Let’s see.”
They wanted the Savior. They wanted to see Jesus.
They were earnest in their search. One translation renders Hebrews 11:6: “God … rewards those who earnestly seek him” (NIV).
Another reads: “God rewards those who search for him” (Phillips).
And another: “God … rewards those who sincerely look for him” (TLB).
I like the King James translation: “He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” (italics mine).
Diligently—what a great word. Be diligent in your search. Be hungry in your quest, relentless in your pilgrimage. Let this book be but one of dozens you read about Jesus and this hou
Thanks for the PainFirst off, this has been probably the hardest thing for me to write. I've been meaning to write it since Thanksgiving, and have been wrestling with it ever since. The quick version is that this journal is supposed to talk about how grateful I am for the terrible, dark, and painful parts of my life just as much as the uplifting and cheerful moments. How I can thank God for the rough times now, even as I'm going through them, because I know he is sovereign and works all things to somehow make me more mature. I guess I have two main reasons why this is so hard to write. The first that in thanking for those dark, painful moments, I'm bearing all my scars for the entire internet to see, with all my friends and family and strangers. I can't help but feel a bit defensive about doing so, for various reasons that basically sum up to 'I don't know the reaction'. Then the other reason is that I'm still working on applying it. Even as I was trying to come up with how to share it, I was griping andThanks for the Pain5 months ago in Personal More Like This

Alrighty Otakus, this month's 30 day challenge is to show your appreciation to those around you! It will take initiative, but you can do it! Wether someone has helped you, been a good role model, or just been a good friend. If you can't think of someone specific, try showing appreciation to someone who serves you wether it be a teacher, waiter, garbageman, etc.
Common ways to show appreciation would be a gift, card, drawing, doing a favor, it can be anything! Just make sure they know that you are doing it because you appreciate them. For more ideas, go to our pinterest page!
Baby Steps: Pick one person to show appreciation.

I Want to Compose Theme Songs for Your OC's*This is only for my watchers!*I Want to Compose Theme Songs for Your OC's5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've thought about doing a unique kind of request, and maybe some of you will be interested in taking me up on it. I am willing to compose a short theme song for your OC if you want, and it'd be totally free. Just provide me some info on your character (the more detailed, the better; it's easier to write music when I have more preexisting info to go off of), and I can get working on it. You can even provide me with some kind of scenario or story they're in and I can compose that (like your character being involved in a chase scene, or perhaps just walking through downtown, etc). I have been composing for eleven years now, and I really love it. I've composed theme songs for my own characters and stories, and it's a ton of fun. If you want me to compose a piece for your character, I'd be happy to do it ^.^
These are some of my other works involving my characters and stories; you can check them out to get an idea of what my mu

Post 10 (or more if you want more things for Christmas!) things that you'd like from family or your fellow deviants this year. It helps if they're things you absolutely want. If it's just one BIG thing you want this year, that's perfectly fine! Be sure to leave some sort of contact info (or people can Note you). Then leave a comment on a wisher's journal somewhere so others can find your list! If you want to be especially generous - list the people who commented on your journal so they can get even more notice! Finally browse around other people's lists, and if you see a wish you know you can grant, help make a person's Christmas become brighter and happier this year! You don't have to spend money to fulfill a wish! It's not to make someone feel put-out with an inexpensive gift, but to give everyone a chance to feel like a holiday-elf (figuratively or literally!). You can give the gift anonymously or not.
No rules, no guarantees, and no strings attached with this proj

Then He appointed twelve, that they might be with Him and that He might send them out to preach.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15
When considering matters of life, death, and eternity, nothing could be more important than authority. That is, who do we believe, and why? The world is full of people claiming to speak for God, but credentials are of the utmost importance. There are false apostles today just as there were in the first century (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).
The common denominator of apostolic authority in the first century was having seen and heard Jesus Christ in person: “How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him” (Hebrews 2:3). Spiritual and divine authority began with Christ and continued through those He appointed and sent out. Their authority was confirmed by “signs and wonders and mighty

Holiday Card Project 2014Holiday Card Project 20146 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The deviantART #HolidayCardProject is back for its 8th year! With the goal of bringing a bit of holiday cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the Holiday Card Project connects artists from around the world, applying their tremendous artistic abilities to designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In 2013 alone, the Project received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 2,000 deviants from 60 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for deviantART volunteers and hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who sends in a card will

Jesus loves homosexuals - video"There is not a hotter or more controversial subject being discussed today in our country than homosexuality. Voices are loud and tempers run hot whenever this subject is mentioned. Be assured that I didn't select the topics in this series because I am equating homosexuals with murderers; nor am I suggesting that addicts or homeless people are to be seen the same as terrorists. It’s simply that the church has historically been unkind to these groups, and we believe it is time to make the statement that Jesus loves all people. In today’s text, we see it clearly: everyone has some kind of past, and everyone can be freed from sin."Jesus loves homosexuals - video1 month ago in Personal More Like This

Remorse WarningRemorse does NOT equate to repentance even if it is the beginning of what it can become. Real repentance forms a will of action and executes a turning away. The warning is to CUT the umbilical cord, don't just look at it and feel sorry -- will your action. Decisively "separate" from sin at ALL cost.

TRULY amazing grace!One amazing thing that I find more and more amazing about God each day is that though WE remember our past sins, our mistakes, our addictions and out falls...GOD DOES NOT. When we ask for his forgiveness those sins, mistakes, addictions, falls, whatever you want to call them are thrown as far as the East is from the West! God doesn't remember them anymore! How amazing is that?! So STOP blaming yourself for the past you can't change. God's already forgiven you. Forgive yourself and learn from your past instead of letting it control your future.TRULY amazing grace!3 months ago in Personal More Like This

He was talking about the story of Esther in the Bible. For those of you who are not familiar with the story, Esther was a Jewish orphan who was adopted and raised by her cousin. When the king was looking for a new wife they held a massive beauty pageant and all the beautiful single ladies were forced to participate, which meant one night of sex with the King and a lifetime of living in his harem (except for the one lucky lady he chose to be Queen). Long story short, Esther is chosen to be Queen and after a chain of events it becomes obvious that God put her in that position to save thousands of people's lives (the Jews). It's a beautiful story of tragedy, irony, good conquering evil...if you haven't read it I really suggest that you do.
So, back to my
