Oh what I would do to have The kind of faith it takes to climb out of the boat I'm in Onto the crashing waves
To step out of my comfort zone To the realm of the unknown where Jesus is And He's holding out his hand
But the waves are calling out my name and they laugh at me Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed The waves they keep on telling me Time and time again "Boy, you'll never win!" "You'll never win"
But the voice of truth tells me a different story And the voice of truth says "Do not be afraid!" And the voice of truth says "This is for My glory" Out of all the voices calling out to me I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

"Important & Random Facts About Me"
I am a young adult that is viewed as a child by many. Not by choice of course but it’s mainly because I tend to be very naïive and idealistic about a lot of things. I’m perfectly capable of seeing the world in black and white but I do know shades of gray tend to appear which makes it impossible to navigate through some of life’s harder challenges sometimes.
I have what many people would consider childish hobbies/pleasures. I’m not an adult by any means because I haven’t experienced anything that could classify me as an adult. I’ve dealt with heartache, grief, loss, pain, betrayal and deceit just like anyone else but that doesn’t mean I’m an adult. It just means I’m human.
My real world experience is basically limited to college life. I haven’t done anything that could be considered adult such as paying off credit card bills or a mortgage loan. I can be an adult when I chose to be, however, so don’t let my childlike mannerisms or behavior fool you.
I feel like an old woman sometimes because I feel like I’m more mature and grown up than my two older siblings combined. I’m also an old fashioned girl when it comes to certain beliefs/views such as waiting until you’re married to have sex, being courted by your future husband instead of dating him and treating your significant other as your equal. I could go on and on about old fashioned mannerisms but we’ll be here all day if I do that.
I'm a notorious busybody and I can be extremely talkative. I have a very weird sense of humor and there's also the fact that I am easily amused. I've a bit of a temper, I try to be open minded about most subjects and I have a bit of a stubborn streak in me. I'm also very passionate and a fiery person but I also consider myself a rarity or better yet an oddball.
"Friends Only Policy"
Nothing personal but I decided to make this journal friends only because I've had one too many dramatic encounters on my previous journals. Yep this isn't my first journal. This is actually my third journal. With this journal I tend to open up about a lot of personal issues/situations. I tend to bare it all in my journal which basically means I have a bad habit of wearing my heart on my sleeve. So those are my main reasons as to why I decided to make this a friend's only journal. If you really want to be my friend then I have to know you from somewhere! Most of the people I've friended are people I know through various fandoms or I know them pretty well in real life. At any rate, if I haven't scared you off or talked your ear off yet then please keep in mind that my journal is a place to reflect and discuss my thoughts and feelings on WHATEVER I would like to discuss. If you can handle all aspects of me and I do mean ALL aspects of me then by all means friend me!
