Hang On by GuyaricanKitten Hang On by GuyaricanKitten
"...Let the people laugh at you, call you names and say you're through. Never let go, keep hangin on..." - Michael W. Smith

Ok, lately, I've been knda felt put down about things people say about my choice to publicly let it be known that: Yes, I love God and would like to follow in his ways and become a better person... I won't name names, but the words and sayings in the background have actually been spoken to me and have hurt my feelings or mad me upset. Is it really so bad to be a firm believer? I mean, I'm happier and stronger because of it! Though I'm looked at as if I'm psychotic? wth? ...Oh well though, Imma keep on going, Imma keep on growing in Christ and I know I'll have no regrets! I mean, I think this is one of my best yet! All cause of HIS abilities given to me so I could do this.. and show my feelings for Him, to praise him... Think me psycho if you want.. or over doing it (which honestly, I'm not)... like i said, imma keep going

Complete lyrics to song by MWS "Hang On":

Let the tempest & the flood
Shake your soul & spill your blood
Like an old song
Keep holdin on

Let the people laugh at you
Call you names & say you're through
Never let go
Keep hangin on

(I said) Hang on, hang on
Can you hear me,
I'm gonna say it again
Hang on, Hang on
Never giving up, no, never giving in

Hang on every hopeful word
Even when it seems absurd
Keep holdin on

If you triumph when you fail
Keep your head when you prevail
Be a hero
Keep hangin around

Hang on, hang on
Are you listening,
Lemme say it again
(I said) Hang on, hang on
Never giving up, no, never giving in

You know, this picture is beautiful, I haven't seen anime mixed with a religious theme yet =)

Gaah, like I said above, I hate hiding the fact I'm Christian.. It's cus I have good friends that are different in belief.. but share almost the same way of thinking.. I mean, I can instantly comunicate with those kind of people. I think I've been blessed with this ability to DO something.. I still don't quite know because I'm 17 turning 18, so I'm still kinda young to do something.. But still I firmly believe I have to do something big in order to at least bring the people out of it's darkness.. They don't even have to become Christian all of a sudden, they just need something to fill up in their lives..
I know it and you know it even better, that God fills a hole in our lives, where there before only was emptyness. I met many people who don't even realize that. They're just being a shell...

Ok, I'm stopping this rant now XD
Jezus rocks, and so does ths pic ^^

ps: This is Frank =)

Lol, aw, long time no speak man! :hug: I miss you lots :heart: And what you're saying is very true, people don't realize how God can actually fill in a huge hole and that's what I've finally been able to feel for myself lately. And lemme tell you something, you're never too young to be able to do something in order to help someone find their way.. as long as you have an understanding of God, if you know you have a good relationship with him.. than sometimes all it takes it a bit of prayer..

And you shouldn't have to hide yourself... there's no reason for it, people shouldn't look down on you for it because it's not something that's bad. If you think about it, it makes you a better person.. I mean, as of lately, a few of my friends are kinda inspired by how I've come outta my darkness.

Anyway, I'll be sure to make more drawings like this for the sake of Jesus, to whom gave me this talent ^_^ So it's only right to use it for his praise, no? Cause I believe there are many different ways to give praise to God... for example, I think with your music talents.. you could make songs to praise God once in a while, w/o even changing your genre of music. For as you said, you've been blessed with an ability to do something... and music touches a lot of people... I'd know cause I listen to a lot of Christian music, it's very inspiring! And not just for the soul... but I have tons of ideas from just listening to it.. hopefully I'll get them all drawn...

And just to prove that even rockers can sing Christian music, I think you should give a listen to this song: [link]
It's kinda got an Evanescence sound. I hope it brings you inspiration, reassurance, and joy as it does to me everytime I listen to it :)

Well, you guys know what suck? I have to HIDE the fact I'm Christian.. And in fucking Belgium you're either an Atheist or a Satanist... I've been to a school (which I'm not going to anymore, thank God) where there were loadsa Satanists/Goths. No problem, I can comunicate very well with those people for a very strange reason. But anyway I got to know them and they once asked "Do you have a belief?", I shamefuly replied "I believe there might be something", and they were all like.. "wtf?"

So yeah... I find it a shame that I hide it.. I mean I hate being socially unaccepted already.. Only my best freinds have a vague hint that I promote God...

My own faith in god is not quite so dedicated.

BUT, nonetheless, this pic makes me respect you quite a bit. I'm glad to hear that you're holding on to your faith even in the face of closed minded bigots.

You got my support, for what it's worth.
