7 Things Teens Need To Hear

Your teenage years are the best part of your life! Don't let this time be filled with unneeded worries.

7 Things Teens Need To Hear

1. You do not have to be in a romantic relationship to enjoy your high school years.

Romans 8:28 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."

Sure relationships are great, but your high school experience should not be revolved around being in a relationship! There is so much more to focus on rather than chasing some guy or girl!

2. While education is very important, your GPA, classes, or college choice does not define you!

Matthew 6:34 "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

This is definitely my downfall! I constantly stress and think about whether or not I have the grades, classes, or requirements I need in order to go to my dream college. Instead of worrying about this, just know that God has your future planned out perfectly. Don't worry, God's got you!

3. It's okay to not fit in. It's okay if you are not like everyone else. Don't pressure yourself to fit in to certain groups or be included with certain people.

Romans 12:2 "Do not conform to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing, and perfect will."

There is no need to change who you are in order to fit in. God made you exactly how He wanted you, "flaws" and all!

4. You are beautiful in a unique way even if no one has ever told you that.

Psalm 139:14 "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made, your works are wonderful, I know that fully well."

Pretty girls are a dime a dozen. Outer beauty attracts attention, but inner beauty is what holds it. Don't stress about how you look or whether you are wearing the hottest clothes. You are beautiful because God made you in His image!

5. Don't beat yourself up over what is in the past. God has forgiven you of all sins.

Galations 5:1 "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free stand firm, then, and do not let yourself be burdened again by a yolk of slavery."

Don't hold on to little grudges. Most of them are silly anyways!

6. Surround yourself with wise people!

Proverbs 19:20 "Listen to advise and accept discipline and at the end you will be counted among the wise."

God has placed people in your life for a reason! These people should believe what you believe. They should be good influences. Don't feel alone because there are a million other people who are going through the exact same thing as you! Also you have God with you all the time! Never doubt His plan!

7. You are not after people's approval, you're after God's approval.

Galatians 1:10 "Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ."

It doesn't matter what people think of you, the only thing that matters is what God thinks of you. You do not have to look for approval in people at your school or even your friends! God is the ultimate judge, do what you think would be pleasing in His eyes.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
