You Have the Right to Tebow

Watch "Tim Tebow - "All He Does Is Win" (via ESPN First Take)" on YouTube

I am guessing at this point everyone knows who Timmy is. After all, every guy wants to be him, and every girl wants to date him. (I mean, I can see why!)

But why has he become such a big deal? Is it the downright incredible 4th quarter comebacks he has made in Bronco games? Is it his good looks? Is it his determination?

No, what really has people talking is the faith that Tebow has. While some people agree with it, others are very openly against him sharing his faith. For instance, his originally humble touchdown celebration became an overnight internet sensation when a the act of getting down on one knee to pray was coined as "Tebowing."

According to, to Tebow is to get down on one knee to pray, even if everyone around you is doing something else.

Is that bad? No! But people are getting so upset over this Tebowing and Tim Tebow phase. Let him praise God for the talent he has been given, and let the people Tebow.

a little thought

Little thoughts are like little bites. They're less difficult to choke on.

"Why would you ever complain, O Jacob,
or whine, Israel, saying,,
'God has lost track of me.
He doesn't care what happens to me'?
Don't you know anything? Haven't you been listening?
God doesn't come and go. God lasts.
He's creator of all you can see or imagine.
He doesn't get tired out, doesn't pause to catch his breath.
And he knows everything, inside and out.
He energizes those who get tired,
gives fresh strength to dropouts.
For even young people tire and drop out,
young folk in their prime stumble and fall.
But those who wait upon God get fresh strength.
They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don't get tired,
they walk and don't lag behind."
- Isaiah 40:27-31 MSG.

A thought. You're right when you feel like you can't go on alone. Because you need His strength to get by. He's got a grip on you and won't let you go (check out Isaiah 40:8-10 msg!!!). So when you feel like you're failing and need help in finals or relationships or family, go to the one who has a lot at His disposal. He just misses you and wants to have a conversation....Just allow yourself to fall back into that.

Small thoughts. Baby steps for the adults in us. <3

Video Games Ate My Boyfriend

There is a reason this post is actually hypothetical.

The reason that this is all hypothetical, is that, well, video games ate all the potential boys. You know, the ones we’re supposed to enjoy flirting with and baking food for. Yeah, them. Munch, munch, munch went the video game, and poof went the boyfriends. I guess those boys were tasty (not that I’d know, the games keep them pretty isolated, much like an envious ex), because they’re all gone now! Like really good muffins at a party- They’re just…gone.

As we speak, all the boys we should be talking to, rather than writing silly self-help posts about, are all in basements across the country, gluing their eyes and fingers to glowing rectangle boxes that make gory sounds. Which really isn’t natural. What primitive creature will be found in a dark hole with something noisy and bright? None. Most creatures don’t do that, except for all eligible men. These men then lose eligibility because they’re hiding in dark holes doing absolutely nothing except murder people with false semi-automatic weapons.

Not to say that video games are bad. I’m sure that there are some out there that teach your grandma to knit better or improve your dad’s balance, and we all know that better-knit scarves and dads who don’t collapse randomly are good. After all, who’s gonna fix that ladder you broke or what’s gonna keep your neck warm in the winter?

But what is bad about them then? When the boys who used to be funny and sweet and chivalrous and charming (yes, those things used to exist, they’re not just myths!) disappeared into dark rooms and behind doors. That's a problem.

They do like to be social about it too. You can find clumps of guys hiding in these corners and laughing when a woman’s head falls off with excess blood. What does that say about gender roles? Where is my suffrage? Do I have a right to veto Modern Warfare 3? Isn’t this democracy? Shouldn’t I get my peaceful say without hordes of teenage boys with no social skills trying to kill me with guns that don’t really exist?

So what is the draw of these games? If they shut the guys out from all the attractive girls who are sitting around waiting to see another male specimen under the age of old, why would a guy even bother?

We went inside to the source: a couple teenagers whose favorite pastimes include Modern Warfare 3, Black Ops, Halo: Reach, and Skyrim.

Stay tuned for exclusive interviews with the potential boyfriends who were eaten.
