I have a theory about first meetings, first experiences, and first songs, so as for the first thought that rolls across this page let it be someone else's.

"He who thinks that he is finished is finished. How true. Those who think they have arrived, have lost their way. Those who think they have reached thier goal, have missed it. Those who think they are saints, in all reality are demons." -Henri Nouwen, The Genessee Diary.

Well its 2:01 in the afternoon and i am atteptempting to create this site for those of us who have more to talk about than what our favorite scene band is, or their favorite color is. instead i want to hear about real life, about real passions and dreams, and what God or life has taught you along this journey (which can be argued as such). So write what you may, but write what you feel, write who you are and not who you want others to perseve you as. life is to short to live as two people. on that note i leave you with this

"No one for any considerable period of time, can wear one face to himself and another to the multitude without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the truth."

SO WHICH IS IT? LIFE IS A...
JOURNEY, DESTINATION, GOAL, CHALLENGE, BITCH, GODSEND, HEARTACHE, ETC. (and why?)

God is love
Love is real

words are creation
music is worship

Life is incomplete without Jesus.

I had your dream, to sing for myself. But that was all changed, by the voice of God. There is nothing worth worshiping than Him. There is nothing worth living for but Him. Find love, find love. He's all consuming, even when you're running.

Actually life is all of the above, lol. or at least I am finding that out.

this life is about faith I think,
as God continues to work in my life, I find that He seems to change my inward circumstances and problems before the physical or even the emotional ones.

Like, when you pray so hard for someone to change, and God ends up changing you instead. And its almost like He leaves nothing sacred, Relationships,People,Health etc etc. Life will either leave you loathing or loving the prospect of eternity.

Because in the end, this life is just the launching point.

I personally think life is a difficult journey, especially for me. But all of those seem to fit what life truly is.
I've had major depression for many years now. I thought it was getting better, but then it started to go down hill, beginning the thoughts of suicide, followed by cutting, hurting, pain. I have such a life story I would love to tell you. I'm considering to write a book on it, on my whole journey of depression, and how everyday for me is a struggle. I want to be real. I don't want to be fake. But it seems as if when I am real, it backfires, and hits me right in the face. *SMACK!* I've had trouble with friends this way. I guess I've told them too much, and I scared them or something.
I hope one day I can lay out everything, and just tell you the truth.

I think Life is purely amazing, in all aspects. It's both wonderful and harsh. It's easy and then its hard. It's an adventure! Never knowing what will happen next or what you may learn and carry with you to Home. It's a struggle but a worthy one. We're all here to live, to learn, to love, and create changes and grow mentally and physically so our spirits will soon be GREAT ones, greater than ever imagined. Our hunger for new experiences and intellect keeps us going as both humans and spirits of God. And I believe it's an amazing journey, Life both here and Home. :D

I have come to find out as I am growing and evolving that "life is a journey, not a destination." Each day you are exposed to new experiences, you meet new people, learn new things, and every so often travel to different places. Each time you take something with you. Whether is good or bad experiences you learn something and apply it to you life. In the end its like collecting pieces of the puzzle, each piece insignificant with out the others. Eventually they fit together and produce "you", a person so diverse, beautiful and unique. I also think that God has a plan whether you agree or like the situations you are in. This may be a bit off tangent of what I'm trying to say, but I always remember that when God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. And better yet "The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you."

So I think you enjoy the ride, be the best person you can be until we are all together with him again.

thing far to wasted. so live it, and live it well.

Life is all we have. Even death is just a small part of it.
An enigmatic question. Obviously, life is seen by most people as a bit of each, so who can argue one thing against the other?
But I think like life is good. Perhaps particulars aren't... but as a whole, I'm glad that this bitch of a Godsend is here.

Consider this: we know
God = Life
thus:
Life = God.
God = Good
Therefore,
Life = Good.
However,
God = bitch... doesn't work so well.

I'm not sure of my current view on life to be honest. I used to have the morbid thought that we were just God's play things and he used us for entertainment. I know that couldn't possibly be true, but honestly, what's the point? at the moment I think life is more of a journey of self-awareness and self-acceptance. we need to find out who we are and what we stand for and be proud of it. we need to stand firm when faced with adversity and learn and grow from our experiences, whether they be good or bad.

so I'm not entirely positive what the whole meaning of life is, but at the moment I think it's a journey, one that I can only hope will turn out well in the end.

Im learning each day that life is literally what you make it. It can be all of the above, depending on your perspective.

I also think that if you invite jesus into your heart, your path in life will be clearer.

This post is over 5 years old but...

Life is amazing, and I feel I need to get out into the world and put my footprint on it. I want to make an impression; make people happy.

Life is about seeing how God throws turbulence into our lives, then later seeing how he knows it will better us in the long run.

Faith and love, that's what it should be about.

we are here for 80 years, give or take a couple decades and no one really knows why. do we have a purpose, a plan for our lives that was laid out before we existed. when i was younger i thought that there was something that i needed to do to discover this monumental purpose that i had. i guess i miss those days when i thought that i would be important, different from the drones of people pushing on through their daily lives. when you are a kid you think you can move mountains if you try hard enough. i think as you get older a pile of dirt becomes hard enough to move, let alone mountains. life is one of those concepts that cannot have one universal meaning, beyond the definition of being alive as defined by biologists. you can be sure you were born if you are alive, and you can be sure you will die but beyond that there aren't any guidelines as to what life has to be. you could waste your life away in a dark basement without connecting your path to anyone else's. you could have been born into the unfortunate situation of poverty in which case your life consists of simple wants and needs. life just is, and we just are. for me, in my own life, i want my version of life to consist of love, and passion and feeling. i want to make this unpredictable ride worth it even if this is all it is. i want to open myself to take it all in, the good, the bad, the everything. i want to be loved, hurt, exhilarated. i want to appreciate it all, the warm sun on my skin, the impossibly perfect night skies, the grains of sand between my toes, the way the light filters through the green of the leaves on the trees. the way my mom smells when i see her after being away for a while, the comfort of being surrounded by friends and laughter on nights that seem to go by too fast. it's too easy to allow ourselves to be sheltered from everything that goes on around us by never striving for anything, by keeping our wants, lusts, dreams to ourselves and never acting on them, by not allowing other people into our lives. i've been put in a fortunate situation of having enough to eat, a place to sleep, a family that loves me, and a relatively happy childhood; if me existing can be of help to another person then i have become more fulfilled than i could have hoped to be. that's what being alive for me is. but who knows really. which i like. how boring it would be if we had it all figured out.
Life is unfathomable.

I only just the other day decided to finally come to this spot on the corner of the blogger inter-web.

In answer to the question asked:
Life is many things. I cannot really be pinpointed as one thing. Life is beautiful but sometimes ugly. It's hard but simple. It's full of disease and war and inhumanities. But at the same time full of life and peace and kind heartedness. I'd say that alot of things are relative. No excessively so, there ARE absolutes. But life is what the person living it percieves it to be. To me, life without Christ is empty. It's unfulfilling. God makes it full and exciting! There is no one I would rather live for.

I'm going to be unoriginal and use a few quotes to answer what I believe life to be. It seems that others have figured out what I can't yet form into words.

"Home is where starts from" -T.S. Eliot

And a response to it from a hero of mine..

"It's a journey indeed...but maybe I'm still looking for home, not there yet, not looking back, still got ground to cover..." -Jon Foreman

Life is a journey to home. And to be a little more original (or less. Beats me which) To live is to love, and to love is to be alive.
