The Power Within
God's Spirit works in every believer. He does not limit Himself to pastors and missionaries. If you've received Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, then residing within you is the same great power that raised Christ from the dead (Rom 8:11) The Holy Spirit pours His energy into creating godly character in all who follow the Lord.

Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it.

The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying. Let's see who will actually re-post this. This is a test to see

"Come out, come out, wherever you are" a male voice sung as the footsteps got louder. The girl sucked in a sharp breath when she saw the man at the mouth of the alleyway. His black Italian boots clacking on the pavement as he drew closer. The girl whimpered as her back was right up against the wall. She didn't want to go, not like this.
"There you are!" he said as a sadistic smile graced his deathly pale skin. His blood red eyes sparkled with excitement as he strolled towards the brunette woman.
"Help!" she screamed at the top her lungs, hoping someone could save her from the man who was approaching her.
"No one can help you. No one can save you from your fate" the man said
