Samson's Story

Hi, girls! So, I'm a little late on this, but I'll just let you know, Jemimah interviewed me over at  her blog, Beautiful Blank Pages!!! Click HERE to read it. :)
Okay, now onto my purpose for writing this:
We all know who Samson is, right? The guy in the Old Testament who had really long hair and super strength! And...yeah that's basically all I knew about him until last night. :P I'll just give you a run down of his story.
Before he was born, an Angel of the Lord came to his mother {who was, before then, unable to have kids} and he basically told her she couldn't have any alcohol until the baby was born. He also told her that after he was born, the child was to never have his hair cut. That child was set apart for God. 
So, Samson grew up, he killed a lion, and ate honey out of it's guts. {cuz he was cool like that :P}
Eventually, Samson got married. But then, due to other circumstances, she {along with her father} were burned to death. {yeah, I know gruesome!} A while later, he met Delilah. She changed his life. Click HERE and read what happened after that.

Samson fell in love with Delilah, she tricked him into telling her the secret to losing his strength {which was getting a hair cut} She cut his hair, and betrayed him to the Philistines. Samson was then taken prisoner. He was blinded and made a spectacle of. Then, one day, he was called to entertain a {very!} large group of about 3000 people!!!! After performing for them, he asked a servant to position him between two pillars. {Now, these two pillars supported the entire building} From there, he pleaded with God to give him back his strength for just a moment: “Sovereign LORD, remember me. Please, God, strengthen me just once more, and let me with one blow get revenge on the Philistines for my two eyes.” Then Samson reached toward the two central pillars on which the temple stood. Bracing himself against them, his right hand on the one and his left hand on the other, Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” Then he pushed with all his might, and down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more when he died than while he lived. {Judges 16: 28-30}

Yuppers. Dramatic death, right?
Sooo, we can learn a few things from Mr. Samson there:
1. Fall in love with the right person.
2. When your boyfriend starts saying things like "You don't love me, because you won't                  " get out of that relationship quick
3.Don't give up what God has called you to do all to be with some guy {or, in Samson's case, some girl}
4. God's got a plan for us. {We've just got to be careful to stay with Him and talk with Him in order to know what that plan is} :)
If you want to read Samson's story in it's entirety, read Judges 13-16 {It's really interesting, I advise you to read it!}
Have a good day, girlies!
