Believe It or Not

I believe in Jesus. My heart knows without a doubt He is the Son of God who chose to come to earth to live a hard life and end up dying to save the world from death. Because of Jesus, I get to live twice except I’m pretty sure I’ll enjoy my second life more than I do this one I’m living now. The idea of something new to happen is so exciting.

I don’t believe in getting to heaven through good works. It’s in the Bible. Don’t believe me? Look it up. This doesn’t mean you don’t do good things. God’s will for every one is to love on others more than you love on yourself.  Love is a good thing.

I believe love conquers all. It doesn’t matter to me what kind of love it is, whether it’s a mother-daughter love or a brother-sister love or a best friend love. God intended love to be powerful. It’s the center for every relationship no matter what kind it is. It can change the hardest heart if it will allow love to penetrate.

I don’t believe love hurts. Love doesn’t hurt any one. It’s the disappointment, anger and feelings of betrayal and getting screwed over that hurts.

I believe technology will eventually take over the world. I’m not a trans-humanist, but I do believe there’s a robotic era that is approaching slowly but surely.

I don’t believe I’ll live to see the robotic era. I’m praying and hoping I don’t live to see it. It’s already ridiculous how much I rely on computers now.

Daily Prompt: Something So Strong – My Bestest

Tell us the origin story of your best friend. How did you become friends? What is it that keeps your friendship rockin’ after all these years?

 Some best friends are discovered at childhood. Some are discovered while going through rough patches. Some are discovered after fights. Some are discovered when living life and partying. Mine was discovered through another person.

She was dating my first cousin in high school. She was quiet and reserved. Being the social butterfly I am, I would try to strike up conversation every time she came around with my cousin to hang out with us at our family functions (mind you I’m 2 years older than her). We made our first connection while sleeping over at a mutual friends house during graduation season. We talked and laughed all night. That summer of 2008 we were inseparable. It helped that my cousin she was dating had left to basic training so I promised him I would take care of his girl while he was gone. That summer was the beginning of late night cruises, beach days, laughs, memories, tears, good times, bad times and a lifetime of friendship.

2008 until Forever. My Bestest

2008 until Forever. My Bestest

Everyone has used that saying “Distance makes the heart grow fonder”. The reason I believe firmly in this saying is because my best friend and I spent a lot of our time physically a part. We constantly talked and stayed connected and made it a point to make sure we saw each other every year. I have her back and she has mine. No matter how many changes we’ve both experienced in our lives; she is the one person I can always count on that will be there when I need her to be. How does our friendship stay strong? Love. As corny as it may sound, love is the reason we stayed friends despite all the changes we’ve endured. The kind of love a person has for their siblings is the kind of love we’ve developed for each other. No matter where life takes either of us, I will always love her like I love my brothers (because I have no sisters) and she will always be the best of the best, which is why I call her my Bestest.
