1 in 5 teenagers have thought about suicide, about 1 in 6 teenagers already made plans to commit suicide, and more than 1 in 12 teenagers had attempted suicide last year. Just as 8 in 10 teenagers who committed suicide tried to ask for help in some way before killing themselves. Reblog if you’re willing to listen to someone.

WHY ARE PEOPLE NOT FREAKING OUT OVER THIS
WHY IS THIS THE ONLY POST THAT TUMBLR STOPS TO QUESTION??

Proverbs 4:23 (NASB). Of course, the more common quoting of it is more like the NIV: “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”
The thing that people seem to forget, though, is that he’s not talking about hearts the same way we talk about hearts. He’s not telling us to guard our heart, be careful where we give affection, be careful who we let in. He’s not telling us to close ourselves off to keep us from pain.
In ancient Hebrew thought, the seat of emotions wasn’t the heart, but the bowels. You ever say you have a feeling in your gut? Does the one you love give you butterflies in your stomach? Do some things seem so sad or emotionally painful that you get sick to your stomach? Do we not say that the courageous person has guts? What role does your heart play in any of those? So, they associated emotions with guts. The heart, on the other hand, was the seat of the mind. We are to guard our minds, be watchful of what we put there, because from our minds flow who we are and what we do.
I wonder if we’re willing to put as much effort into guarding our minds as scripture commands as we tend to put into mistakenly guarding our emotions.(via n1ghtcrwler)
Both of my parents were engineers. My father studied as part of a trade program and my mother had some college as a music major. Both did not have college study that applied to their field that they had as their vocations.
Why are there is no trade programs for preachers or church secretaries? At what point did Christians start seeing colleges as away train people and why does it continue?
God did lead me to my Bible College and has chosen to grow me here. However the gap in acceptable choices in higher Christian education still burdens my mind. Will this gap ever be filled?
