Author has written 1 story for Spiritual.
Greetings. I'm K.J. Smith. I'm 17 and I live in Michigan. Not much to know about me except I like writing stories and music and I enjoy meditating. I used to be a fanfiction writer by the name of Gamer Blaze, but I've been pulled out of it for spiritual reasons. Perhaps my talent might hopefully find a home here.

"A teenage girl about 17 named Diane had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her. When the policeman asked him, he answered, 'Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her.'"
This was from CGWOlf'13's profile page. I reposted it because I believe in God. I also believe that this could happen to anyone who believes in God, because when you believe, you are truely never alone. This actually reminds me of a similar tragedy reported on TV. An old woman was in the road and a truck came hurtling toward her. She asked God for safety and survived. She described her savior as a young man in all white who appeared right in front of her. She called him an angel. You're never alone if you only believe and are truly saved. I warn you...God will destroy all who turn away from Him.
MESSENGER OF FIRE: Characters and Symbols
Randy Welkins: The protagonist and narrarator. Randy is a 17-year senior at Littleton High School in Colorado. He starts off as an immature guy who wants nothing more than pleasure, but by his brother's constant motivation, he reads a Bible and gets called by the Lord by doing so. Although he struggles in many ways, he is intelligent and able to understand something once he catches the drift of it.
Jonathon Welkins: Jonathon, or "Jon", is Randy's year-older brother. He's been saved for over a year and is constantly pushing Randy toward salvation as much as possible. But he can only do so much. He is part of a group of Christians who try to win souls for Christ.
Jennifer Finnely: Randy's girlfriend. She is in the same grade as him, but goes to Columbine High. She used to date William Belgan, but dumped him because she had a soft spot for Randy and hated Belgan's jokes against him. In a way, she symbolizes Mary Magdalene.
William Belgan: Jock of Littleton High. He's been pushing Randy around for six years. He always makes sure he is doing whatever he does better than Randy ever would, and boasts about it a lot. He also has a loud, trumpet-like voice. For these reasons, he symbolizes the Pharisees...along with the older brother in the parable of the Prodical Son at one point.
Roger Feliciano: One of Jon's Christian friends. He represents the apostle Peter a lot. Both Roger and David Moore had pre-conversion fantasies of being fishermen. In addition, Roger dreamed of being a professional protestor due to his ability to debate well. The Lord used him to spread messages, mainly inside the library to anyone who is willing to listen.
David Moore: Another one of Jon's Christian friends. He symbolizes the apostle John. Both David and Roger Feliciano had dreams of being fishermen. However, when they were saved, the Lord had them use their abilities to spread the message of Christ. While Roger spoke, David wrote essays about Christ and his joy in Christ, impressing even the mayor.
Alyssa Sutman: The final group member of Jon's Christian group. She used to be a slave to masturbation, but finally fell into the arms of Christ. She noticed Roger speaking in the library one day and, also being aware of David's essay to the mayor, joined them.
Andrew Sutman: Alyssa's younger brother, whom Randy becomes good friends with. Because both he and Randy have an older sibling in a Christian group, the two of them often communicate with each other in order to talk about events or anything else they choose to. Although Andrew does become a good friend of Randy's, he doesn't make an major appearances in the story.
Mrs. Rachel Curtis: Randy's English teacher. She is respected by, not only Randy, but many others as well, including David Moore. She enjoys whenever students give her something to be excited about, encouraging Randy to write something grand for his essay due at the end of the year.
"Love isn't just something to try. No 'act' of love can satisfy. You've got to believe it's live or die. To ask yourself the question, 'How can love survive?' And if we try and it don't work out like so many people do...it's just a fact of life, no we ain't in charge. There ain't nothing that's wrong with me, and ain't nothing that's wrong with you. Love's got nothing to prove. It's not up to you. Two souls come into a world made of time and space. Searching for the truth with nothing but love to prove to find it in the gift of a moment of grace."
