d-d-dont stop the beat

dont stop the beat, no matter what life throws at us we cant stop the beat and have to keep going.

"God expects you to have enough faith and determination and enough trust in Him to keep moving, keep living, keep rejoicing. In fact, He expects you not simply to face the future (that sounds pretty grim and stoic); He expects you to embrace and shape the future--to love it and rejoice in it and delight in your opportunities.

"God is anxiously waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams, just as He always has. But He can't if you don't pray, and He can't if you don't dream. In short, He can't if you don't believe."

-Jeffrey R. Holland, 9-12-04


NOT just words.

some people dont like change but i on the other hand embrace change, i think change is good it keeps life interesting. another great thing in life is choice, some choices in life are very hard, and may be for good or bad. something that may seem like it will be easy isnt always the best choice. sometimes the hard decisions are what matter the most. the fray said "sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same". they change your life. the choices are great and small, easy and hard.

we make soo many choices a day that we may not even notice them. they can be as simple as getting out of bed on time. but some may be harder, much, much harder. but if you know that the choice you are making is right, if you feel it is what you need to do with all your heart and soul, even if its one of the hardest choices you have ever made, if you know it is right and what needs to be done. it may be hard but it will be worth it in the end. i would like to share a quote, actually its my favorite quote:

"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones that don't, and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy; they just promised it'd be worth it."

that quote talks about change, choice and also love. where would be all be without love. alot of people say money or materialistic things make to world go round. but i say that love makes the world go round. and as the beatles said:

without love for one another the world would be a much worse place than it already is. i see and hear about people all the time that are full of love and what great joy it brings them to show there love to others. i also hear about people full of hate, when i hear storys about these people i wounder how they can truly go on everyday just being full of hate, i think that that would be really draining on ones soul.

so there are the words take them ponder them, what do you think about change, if someone is different, physically, mentally or spiritually how do you view them? the world dosent need anymore hate. so why should we add to it, make the difference, people are different, without that the world would be one sad, bland place. show people that are different than you that you care, and if someone you are close to gets a chance and decides to take it, and if it changes there life, embrace them, because who knows the change that they have made is probably worth all the trouble they have went through.

its hard enough to be in the world as it is. so just accept people for there differences.

the reason i started this blog

so what do we believe, 13 simple beliefs from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

The Articles of Faith
of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

1. We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.

2. We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adam's transgression.

3. We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.

4. We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.

5. We believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel and administer in the ordinances thereof.

6. We believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church, namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.

7. We believe in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing, interpretation of tongues, and so forth.

8. We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.

9. We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.

10. We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent; that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.

11. We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.

12. We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.

13. We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.
