Friday Roundup #14


Hello everyone!

If you are new to this blog, and even if you are a regular, you should know that every Friday, I will attempt to roundup the three best posts of the week. So without further ado, here is the 14th Friday Roundup!

3. Life Continues on After… (Christopher)

“What is your view of marriage? Many young people, including the Church, view marriage as the ultimate goal in life. They think that once they get married, it’s all going to be good; life will slip into cruise control. Wrong.”

I have to say, I love this post. It is quite an amazing article. Christopher does a wonderful job of summing up where you should get your fulfillment in life and saving your heart for the person. Don’t let your life go nuts just because you are a teenager and going through a “stage.” Giving your heart away is easily avoidable. If you struggle with it, just pray to God and ask Him to help you with it. He most likely will.

2. Establishing Prayer (Christopher)

“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
– James 5:16

Something that God has been showing my family recently is the power of prayer. As the verse above says, the prayer of a righteous and Godly person accomplishes much. So many times, we don’t take advantage of this great privilege that we have. Think about it- we have a direct line to the Maker of the universe. And so often, we neglect this opportunity that He has given us. Take advantage of it and spend time talking with the One who made you. It’s something that you won’t regret!

1. Exclusive Interview with Mr. Josh Duggar (Collin)

“As Christians, we have an opportunity to step out and make a difference.”

– Mr. Josh Duggar

This is the first time I have ever put one of my own posts on a Friday Roundup, but I figured it would be OK since the interview was a team effort. Anyway, Mr. Duggar’s wisdom is unlike any other that I have seen from a man that young. We are so thankful to him that he was able to take time out of his busy schedule to sit down and share his wisdom with us. I know I was encouraged and motivated by his words, and I pray that you are too!

QOTW (Quote of the Week): “Prayer is powerful, and as Christ’s children, we need to be in correspondence with our Father.” – Establishing Prayer (Christopher)

HIRL (Happening in Real Life): The 238th anniversary of our nation’s independence was last week! I hope Americans never forget the sacrifice that our founding fathers made for our nation.

Enjoy your weekend!

Howdy! I’m Collin, 16 years old, and a homeschooled junior. I play the piano, ukulele, and many sports. I’m far from perfect, and that’s why I love to share (through this blog) what God is showing me in His word. Although I have many favorite Bible verses, if I had to choose one it would be Romans 12:12, Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” I believe that prayer is the most powerful tool we are given as Christians and it should not be taken for granted. Toodles!
