*CRY*

I’m watching President Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention right now and when he said “the marine who could come home to the husband who he loves” it struck a chord in me and I don’t know what happened but I started crying because I could get married one day to a girl that I love because of how far we’ve progressed. Two years ago no one could do that and now, we can.

TATINOF ROAD TRIP

39 cities. 43 shows. a hell of a long time.

getting stuck on a bus for hours on end sucked, but at least there was fun music about travelling and being with your best friend to pass the time.

ft. the doodles and commentary of two very bored guys stuck in a bus. i’ll let them tell you what happened. (click for hd!! this took hours!!)

i’ll post this now while everyone is still in the heat of things… lets hope i write this in a way that makes sense, ^^”

anyway, i’ve been a christian since i was four. so i’ve grown up knowing Christ and his love for me all my life. that’s 13 years. i have a loving mother who came to faith before i was born and promised to give me a life better than what she had.

because of that, I’ve never had any BIG life problems or things I’ve grown up with that were really noticeably sinful… so like…. my life got pretty boring. it’s not that i forgot about God, or that i forgot about his saving grace… it just felt stale. like when you cant hold a conversation together with someone and you’re left hanging, not knowing what to say.

it’s so easy to be swept up in life and just flat out forget that God is even there. when i did have a few bursts of depression in my 8th-freshman years, i felt alone. i didnt even feel like a christian… and at that time i didn’t have the squad. i didnt have anyone. i dont know how many times i cried at that point because of being alone and not having anyone and feeling spiritually dead inside.

i dont know how, but i powered through it. i still felt alone at times, but i tried to get in touch with God more through my prayers. i don’t really think i was trying my best though.. i still felt empty.

i think it was january… i got stuck in my depression rut again. when i finally built up the courage to at least talk about how i was feeling to you guys, something clicked. God had given you all to me to help me with keeping in touch with him. through all of your life problems and random spews about scripture you liked, it kept me closer to him, rather than me floating away and being secularized. some here are more experienced christians, and some new, but regardless, you all have that same faith in God.

i was praying for hours that night and i finally felt that genuine, “I put my faith in you.” that God wants to hear from all of us. i had been crying the entire time and i was so emotionally tired from just… everything. i cried a lot that night over the squad and i just kept spinning a “Thank you for them… i wouldn’t be where i am now if it weren’t for them.” over and over again until i finally crashed out.

unlike when i was younger, i do struggle now with extremely tempting and sinful thoughts and actions. i’ve talked with a couple squad members about the problems i have currently, and you guys are just… . .. so supportive and loving………,, you all bring me closer to Christ and through everything that’s happened in the past, and may happen in the future, through hatred and love, sickness and health, it all points to him.

that defining moment for me when i truly felt saved and could feel that connection with God was that night where i laid myself before him and gave him my everything. i’m not perfect now, nor will i ever be until he brings me to my eternal home, but i will do my best to stand up for the truth.

i try not to think too much about how good the squad is for me because i’ll always end up crying, but i love you. i love every one of you. even if you arent in the squad but are still there in spirit, you’re the best…. i cant describe in words how important you all are to me.

thank you for bearing with my slip ups and bad decisions, helping me see where i’m wrong, being a good influence to me, helping me be accountable for my actions, and loving me. it means so much to me,, im constantly praising God because of you.

thank you
