July 24, 2010. It’s nearly midnight now and I’m running out of time to make this. I worked all day long, on a Saturday, yeah I know. The sad part is I spent all day long hoping for something amazing to happen something great something to appreciate this day and to be a part of it and to show the world that there is something great that can happen everyday of your life and everyone’s life. But the truth is, it doesn’t always happen, and for me today, all day long nothing really happened. I want people to know that I’m here. I don’t want to cease to exist. I’m not gonna sit here and tell you I’m a great person because I don’t think I am at all, I think I’m a normal girl. Normal life. Not interesting enough to know anything about, but I want to be. And even though nothing great really happened, tonight, I feel as if something great happened. x

Find shared interests and common ground like sushi, and folk music. Build an impenetrable bastion upon that ground. Make it sacred. Retreat into it every time the air gets stale, or the evenings get long. Talk about nothing of significance. Do little thinking. Let the months pass unnoticed. Ask her to move in. Let her decorate. Get into fights about inconsequential things like how the fucking shower curtain needs to be closed so that it doesn’t fucking collect mold. x
Answering such objections – if they are genuine and not extended in a way that refuses to believe even if reasoned responses are given – requires only the disciplined study of Scripture alongside the Spirit of God who inspired it. Arguments with those who possess a hardened skeptical spirit are to be avoided as 1 Timothy 6:20 says, “O Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly and empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called ‘knowledge.’” But even still, God is fully capable of using His powerful general revelation (the creation) to witness to those who appear completely lost due to a skeptical and hardened heart.
We know that from nothing, nothing comes. So, if there were ever a time when there was absolutely nothing in existence, then nothing would have ever come into existence. But things do exist. Therefore, since there could never have been absolutely nothing, something had to have always been in existence. x
