Explosive Mind...

Hmph. I honestly don't even know where to start. My mind is racing, literally. First Off, i have a few "first offs" 1) I am NOT prefect by no means, nor will I ever claim to be. 2) This may not be your typical topic of interest for a blog site but, get out of your comfort zone-READ IT. 3) NO, I won't use this as a place to "preach"--I just have a lot on my mind right now. And 4) If you don't agree with the things I say, thats perfectly fine-everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

Now...So its Wednesday night, I just got back from church and it was an awesome experience. Something to fulfill that void that can sometimes be overwhelming when you move to a new area, and begin a TOTALLY differernt life. I pretty much just have a ton of random things to say that I hope will touch someONE...ANYONE. I was itching to share this SO bad I could barely focus on the rest of the message tonight (ADD much?).

First off- YOU are NOTHING without GOD. Never forget that.
--You're not who the world says you are, you're who God says you are. Don't let the lies of satan and this filthy world consume you. And if you ever do get to that point where you're consumed by them and can't seem to get away...don't freak. Sometimes being at the "end of your rope" is the best place to be...because then you have no where else to turn. Look UP. If you feel like a failure, don't worry, its normal. Instead of pondering and sulking in your own failure, seek the Glory that God gives you. He won't force you to take it...but He does offer it and you do have the choice. >>Deutteronomy 8:6 "Observe the commands of the LORD your God, walking in his ways and revering him."<<
p.s. God is!

OK...phew, moving on.
I'm not sure why this is on my mind but i just felt the need to talk about it. =] So, im getting married in just a short time...8 months!! OMG it seems crazy to even think about but, i'm so excited. I've been engaged to the most wonderful guy that I have ever met for almost a year and 7 months now. Yes i know, its been a long engagement but, we're both still in school and young so we have to make sure we make "mature decisions" and be very responsible about it. This Christmas will be 5 years that we have been dating-never broken up and very rarely do we fight. Now, don't get me wrong, we have our fair share of disagreements but, we're both super sensitive so we can't stay mad very long (believe me, i try). I love him more than he will ever know. He IS my prince charming. We have a very special and unique relationship. I don't know how everyone else's relationships are but, i feel like ours is different. It's not always about having everything peachy and going exactly the way YOU want it should bring you such contentment by making the other person feel that way. Regardless of what the circumstances or consquesnces may be. Sacrifices aren't always easy to make but, they're usually worth it. My friends are all SO SO SO awesome. I'm blessed beyond measure to have them in my life. I'm literally tearing up right now just thinking about it. I treasure friendship more than most things..sometimes a little too much maybe?? I refuse to let someone talk about my friends. I will defend them at ALL times, even if I do end up wrong in the end (then i'll take care of it with that person lol). Woah, way off track. Like I was saying, my friends are all so super supportive of my relationship and it makes it soo easy. [if you're reading this, i love you more than you will ever even begin to think about!!!] I was talking to some friends just a few nights ago, just being completely open and honest (NOT a hard thing for me to do..if you know me then you know exactly what I mean) and within minutes (like 2 tweets literally) I was on a cloud. Friends always know just the right things to say at the right times..thats TRUE friendship. I'll show ya...

"P.S. @corysamples is an INSPIRATION to me! She is getting married soon and is pure. She's waiting for her wedding night. GOD bless her!! Xox"

"She is SO gorgeous, and her purity and loyalty and patience and love truly makes her SHINE. I love you SO much @corysamples! You inspire me!"

...I NEVER regret the decisions i've made for myself nor will I EVER lower my standards for anyone but, sometimes you just kinda lose focus as to what and why you're doing what you're doing..?? That tends to happen to me every now and then because it's been so long of a relationship. (times--he is totally blowing up my phone with texts right now--"HANG ON, you distracting me from my writing!!" lol) Anyways--BUT just the crazy awesome conversation that we had and those two simple yet SO touching and encouraging tweets just gave me a serious boost that I needed and I wasn't even aware of. Thank YOU sooo much && i can't tell you enough how much I LOVE YOU. (who said it you had to be friends longer than a few weeks to get there?? psh.)

And for you GIRLS--Don't be fooled by what this world portrays as "in" or "cool". Set you're OWN standards, make you're OWN decisions, NEVER feel as if you have to justify what you think/feel/believe, and DO NOT stoop to a lower level or settle for less just for a short "pleasure" (and no i don't necessarily mean sex).

Okkk....I think i'm done. Sorry SO random and hoppy topic-y. More blogs to come and they'll most likely be more entertaining than this one...not SO serrrous! I love you all & you are beautiful. ... SHOUT OUT to my Y5 girls--YOU ROCK MY SOX OFF!!!!! <3 yall forever and always!!! *CLAMP*

  2. I absolutely LOVE YOU. So much! You are truly SO insiprign to me, and I SWEAR reading your paragraph about GOD and church really put me in my place. I have been so distant to him lately, focusing more on childish things and I NEED to get back on track. This really opened my eyes!

    And I almost cried when you wrote about the frieends. I love you so much, and your SUCH a WODNERFUL person Cory. We haven't known eachother long but you've changed me SO much and I know that it was fate and GOD that brought us together for a REASON! You're such an amazing person and I love you with my whole heart.

    Within our first "vent" sesh we were literally talking about things I've NEVER talked to ANYONE about! That's the beginning of an absolutely PERFECT friendship! I love you so much, you're so amazing. And never ever doubt that I love you! I'm 16, I'm gonna go through drama and probably seem SUPEr immature at times. But we'll make it through that.

    John is SUCH a lucky guy, and NEVER think otherwise. HE is the lucky one for landing someone like you! DO you KNOW how many girls your age are at ROCK BOTTOM, emotionally, financially, spiritually, mentally even physically!

    You are HEALTHY, HAPPY, LOVING, AMAZING, INSPIRING, and most importantly you are SHINED ON by GOD. You are a true follower, and a true believer and that's what I aspire to be, not that I don't believe. But I need to grow within my belief, and stop being such a doubty child. I know why I'm here, and it's GOD. And you are a GOD-send to me. I believe he sent you to save me, because you truly have in SUCH a short time!!!

    You are my BLESSING.

    I love you. No.. seriously... read it... memorize it... BELIEVE it...
    I LOVE you.

    Love ALWAYS,
    Miley xx

  3. Wow Cory! There is only one thing i can say after reading that...I LOVE YOU GIRL!!!!! You are one of the few people I know that have their head on straight and Im truly thankful God put you in my life because you have helped me with many situations already. You mean so much to me and I hope we're always there in each others lives to help or listen to the others problems.

    You're truly special! <3 u!!

  4. Cory!!! your blog is absolutely an inspiration!
    everything u said made me think.
    i like how u said that when we are sometimes in the end of our rope, all we can do is look UP! its so true!!

    &im so happy for your upcoming marriage! its nice to hear ur relationship with ur bf has lasted so long and im sure it'll last forever =]
    and yep, friends complete our lives :) every day we should let them know how special they are coz u never know when it's too late.
    my best friend was the MOST sweetest girl i've ever known. and im glad i showed my love to her coz she died..she had leucemia. at least she always know how much she meant to me!!she's always in my heart&in my thoughts.
    Now she's in heaven with God =] my little angel.

  5. cory, you totally stole my line! lol " rock my socks off" ! ha. anyways..

    wow. you really are inspiring! great speech about god and beliefs. i am so into believing in god right now. i know i was brought up christian an all, but recently i realised that it really does matter. i think as im growing up and getting older (and wiser =P), i have developed my morals.

    you must be so lucky to have such great friends. i mean (dont get me wrong) i have lots of very good friends, its just none that i can share my true feelings to. however im working on that!



  6. Wow!!! Your ARE So right about all this!!! I really needed to hear that today!!! Continue to let God use you the way he is using you in SOOOOOOOOO many peoples life!!! I love you sooo much and you REALLY are a TRUE friend!!!

  7. It's so good to see there's people like you in the world.. you show to the world that you can love God and still be a normal and even funny young girl. Meeting Jesus has been the greatest thing that has happened to me, it changed me and opened my eyes in so many ways, and He continues to do it day by day, and its so good to share the good things in your life with other people, the best thing is that i can still be a young girl and live a free and happy life, have fun but still be a blessing to others.

    Reading everything that Miley wrote you made me as happy as you wont ever imagine, for some reason, witch i still dont completly get, i was so desperately praying for her to find something like what she has found through your friendship, im so happy for her, and for you cause i know what a blessing it is to be able to be a blessing to someone, specially someone you love. And i'll continue to pray for you, Miley and Ashley to keep recieving more of the beauty that God has for yall, its just AMAZING!

    Btw Cory.. congratulations on your marriage, im really happy to know you found such a wonderful blessing =], it just shows that relationships with God r a TOTALLY different thing.. JESUS ROCKS!!
    Sorry for making this so long, i just really felt like i needed to tell you this.

    Love, Stephanie

    Ps. true friends r the best!!
