"30Even youths grow tired and weary,

and young men stumble and fall;
31but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and now grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."

Hold On - 33 Miles

The title speaks for itself. HOLD ON!
The lyrics of this song are BEAUTIFUL.
The video makes it even more powerful. =)

I've been there a thousand times,
I've felt the rain like a thousand knives.
And it hurts,
I know it hurts..
I've been there like a fighter plane,
Tryin' fly my way through a hurricane.
And it's hard,
I know it's hard...

Don't be afraid,
You'll make it through,
Just call out to me and I'll come running to you...

Hold on, hold on!
When the current pulls you under,
And your heart beats like thunder.
Just give me your hand,
And hold on, hold on...
Until the storm is over,
And I'll be fighting for you.
Just give me your hand and,
Hold on!

I'll give you hope, I'll give you faith...
And if it's dark, I'll light the way,
For you, for you..
By your side, until the end,
Until you're standing tall again..
I'm here, I'll always be here.
And if the tide, sweeps you out to sea,
When your strength is gone, and it's hard to believe..

Hold on, hold on!
When the current pulls you under,
And your heart beats like thunder..
Just give me your hand,
And hold on, hold on...
Until the storm is over.
And I'll be fighting for you,
Just give me your hand..

Ooooo so...
Hold on, hold on!
When the current pulls you under,
And your heart beats like thunder..
Just give me your hand.
And hold on, hold on..
Until the storm is over,
And I'll be fighting for you...
Just give me your hand,
And hold on, hold on!

Regarding to GAY Rights..

Hey.. Sorry i only checked the blog now and haven't finished up the updates but well, apparently there's a confusion about how people nowadays have been fighting for gay rights and even abortion rights, saying being human, we have the rights to do whatever we want. So i decided to talk about that and gave the Bible a look through (thankfully for the help of the 'Index to Subjects' at the back of my Study Bible) so here we go:

First, is the famous story of Abram and Lot. They separated and Lot pitched his tent near Sodom. Which the next verse is from Genesis 13:13:
Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning against the LORD
Well perhaps that wasn't clear enough what the men were wicked for but just before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, God sent two angels to Sodom and both stayed with Lot and in Genesis 19:4-5:
4Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom -- both young and old -- surrounded the house. 5They called to Lot, "where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them."
Ewww.. i guess that should be clear enough how the lifestyle of the men there was. And thus the word, 'Sodomy', anyone?

Then, in Leviticus 18:22 under 'Unlawful Sexual Relations', the Lord said to Moses:
" 'Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.
That should be homosexuality right? And God said it's detestable. Similar situation to what was done by the men of Sodom can be found in Judges 19:24 which will be better if you all read the whole chapter so i'm not gonna write it down here.

In the New Testament, Paul wrote in Romans 1:26-27:
26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
God allowed sin to run its course as an act of judgment. So apparently homosexuality has been around for a long time. Even though since then God has commanded through Moses that homosexuality is detestable, people still do it. And nowadays, those people are fighting back for what they called, is their rights as well as abortion. Those two are not natural!

So if you are still with me till the end of this post, i'll end with a reminder from Romans 12:2:
Do not conform any longer to the pattern 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.
Let us not conform to the ever-changing pattern of this world. Though now "rights" have been brought up, God IS Love and His Word still remains: Homosexuality has been, is now, and will still be, a sin. Man with man and woman with woman, though only the men were mentioned in the Bible, it's applicable to women just like how other verses of the Bible apply to women though only men were mentioned. i hope that clears up the confusion.

And as Tammi has put out, we shouldn't treat people who practise homosexuality differently, but instead, we should try to reach out to them. We have to help our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ to be sure on this matter and help guide those who have strayed back to the right path when we are given the opportunity to do so. And even when we can't do much, let us pray for those who need to be prayed for.

May God bless all of us!
