Long Time, No Write

Sorry for not posting in forever and a day, but that's how it is. I guess I'm just not as into blogging as I used to be. But that's not the point. I'm gonna update because I need to blog something out. Usually I'd think something out, but sometimes thinking just doesn't cut it. Which means that I need to blog it out. Usually I'd analyse a quote or some lyrics or SOMETHING, but really, I think I'm done with that. Okay, I don't even know if I can post this here because my parents are super nosy and might read, so I can't blog it out. Which means I'm trapped. So let's talk about being trapped. I mean, really, what is trapped? A state of mind? A place? Having chains? Well, I remember last year in Bible class (Yes, I'm talking about last year in Bible class. Good times.) well, we were talking about things that chain us, things that keep us from God. Things that keep us from being who we should be. We wrote down as a class a list. It was mega-cool. All kinds of things were on there, but it was mostly what we put into our head. Like, what types of music we listen to, what books we read, who we talk to, and what TV shows we watch. All kinds of things can keep us from having a relationship with God. So many things. I guess I didn't realise some of them at the time. I guess I didn't realise a LOT of them at the time. I couldn't see that contradictions could keep me from God. I couldn't see that LOGIC could keep me from God. I couldn't see that SCIENCE could keep me from God. The strange part? All those things can bring us closer to God too. Just as quickly as they can make us simply walk away from God, they can make us walk towards. I guess they just make us walk, and we get to decide where to. Just if we decide, chances are, we'll make the wrong decision. Which is why we have to let God be in control, I guess. Wow. Looks like I blogged out the right thing afterall. That is just SO cool.
