About Me

Hello again!

I’m fifteen, I’m home-schooled, and I’ve been crucified in Christ. That’s all I feel you really need to know about me, because in reality I’m not important. Jesus is important, and while you visit my blog, I hope to uplift Him to the best of my ability. This is the verse I want to live up to:

20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)

My goal is to, in some way or another, spread the Gospel of Christ with both believers and unbelievers: both need it equally as much. One needs it for salvation, the other needs the Gospel to help him/herself get out of bondage to sin, but both need it.

You are loved!

Joshua Cleveland

    Joshua Cleveland…We share the same name….I’m Joshua David Cleveland. 31 years old, married to a great gal and we have a sweet little guy who is going to have his 1 year old b-day on Monday! We are expecting a little brother for our son in about 8 weeks. I was just checking my professional wordpress blog I created years ago when in college for teaching and stumbled upon your blog. I was encouraged to see your clear confession of faith in Jesus Christ. He is the best. I spent 3 months kayaking down the Mississippi River alone and the lord really got a hold of my heart and showed me the truth of his word. Well, blessings on your schooling, your life, and your love for the Lord. May you live in your namesake, which is “The Lord is Savior.” jc

      How interesting is that, I’ve never met anyone with the same name as me before. My name is Joshua Will Cleveland though, so there is some small difference.

      As it happens, I actually Googled my name once (who hasn’t?) just out of curiosity as to what would come up, and came across your blog. I’m glad to hear you’re doing well… Given how late I replied to you though, I suspect your next son may already have been born! If so, congratulations. I’m sure both your sons will grow up wonderfully with you as their father.

      Also, 3 months kayaking down the Mississippi River? Wow! Spend that long out in nature and it’s no wonder God got a hold of your heart; I’ve always thought that, next to the Bible, nature is one of the clearest expressions of God’s majesty in the World.

      Thank you for the encouragement. I hope that God blesses you and your family as well.

    Joshua, I’m new to the blogging world and just came across yours. How refreshing! Just wanted to stop in and encourage you to continue.

      Hey Linda, thank’s for stopping by. πŸ™‚ I appreciate the encouragement, and I’m glad you found the blog refreshing. It’s always nice to know people are actually being effected to one degree or another when they read the blog.

      Speaking of blogs, welcome to the blog-o-sphere! πŸ™‚ I personally have found it’s really hard to get started (please, please don’t read my first 50-100 posts, I can’t hardly look at them without flinching), but reading your blog, you make it look easy!

      Anyway, thank’s again for the encouragement,

        Thanks, Joshua. Experience in writing is a big help, and you’re getting a good early start. I was an English, history, and Bible teacher for many years. Experience really is the best teacher πŸ™‚

    As a mom of a 20 yr old in Bible College and a 17 in High School, choosing to do right… its refreshing seeing other young people making the same choice.

    I’m following you on twitter but more importantly, will be watching what the Lord does with you on this journey.

    you parents are probably more thankful for this choice you’ve made in sharing the Word of the Lord than you’ll know.

    you are already ministering to so many people.

    happy SONday

      Thank you TacticianJenro, but I’ve already received that reward. I’m not quite sure how the rewards system works, but I don’t believe I’m allowed to accept a reward twice. I’m not sure about that though.

      Thank you though,

    Hi Joshua I’m sorry it has taken so long to respond to your kind offer of the Kreativ Blogger Award, I couldn’t find it on your Blog so I’m commenting here. I have had to make some major changes to my Blog and now have my husband Ron is helping me. I’m sorry but I have already received this Award and believe you can only receive it once, but because of the problems with my Blog have not posted it yet.

    I was going to nominate you for it, but instead I will talk to you about another Award that is very differant, no rules etc I hope you like it, I will let you know next comment. But if you like Awards Joshua and they are indeed a great way to encourage other Bloggers and to meet new ones, I have other ones that need people who are interested in receiving them and because your a very uplifting writer and have a good focus I would have no hesitation in nominating you for them just let me know.

    Christian Love Anne.

      That’s no problem; the reward is of course optional, plus seeing as you’ve already received it, well, not much point in giving it to you twice :).

      Thank you, I appreciate the reward :).

    woke up this wee hour of the day and happened upon your blog. Well done dear Joshua. Remain humble, remain steadfast and know that it is God that gives you power to …do His good pleasure. i am writing all the way from Lagos, Nigeria.

    Dear Joshua and as Others Read this:

    Blessings and continue to ‘heed His call’ to “reach out into the deep for a catch of souls for the Master”. (Luke 5:4).

    He has chosen to bless me to know that you are out there, in your generation, being used of Him.
    Never be dismayed, never be discouraged. Stay in the Word, as you are doing, stay under the ‘anointing of your parents’ as you are doing, and do, oh, do continue to – SHARE HIS WORD, just as you are doing. (Study 1 and 2 Timothy for your continued edification.)

    My regards and continued prayers are covering you, your parents and sisters and brother. You are testimony to the wonderful reason, “train up a child in the way he ought to go, and he will not depart therefrom, when he is older.” Proverbs 22:6

      I honestly appreciate your comment, and it has meant alot to me, so, once again, thank you.
