so despite my embaressing last post, that i thought was only going ot appear on a blogring and not here, well actually this is about that. the fact that me posting in a blogring is simply a link to here, as i have now found out, is silly and stuipid. it actually is kind of a good idea it just should be better communicated so people don’t make an arse out of themselves.
my apolgies for anyone who read that and wasn’t excepcting that kind of content.
My purpose in life is to please God.
Our team did well in district, thanks be to God. We got second in districts so we will be going to regionals. Unfortunealty regionals is the same weekend as district for fine arts so i will go with them in spirit and will be in wapauca for fine arts.
if anyone prays please pray that God will help me figure everything out. i need to prepare a vocal solo and a short sermon for fine arts for may 11ish. i also have a research paper to start and finish today.
tonight is Bible quiz. i have hardly studied and on saterday we head to Green Bay for discrict. oh grief, on top of this i have a balloga whale’s worth of hw. i am excited for bq though. i know i can get through it all too, with Him.
Grace and peace,
“Forgiveness offers a way out. It does not settle all questions of blame and fairness—often it pointedly evades those questions—but it does allow a relationship to start over, to begin anew. In that way, said Solzhenitsyn, we differ from all animals. Not our capacity to think, but our capacity to repent and to forgive makes us different. Only humans can perform that most unnatural act, which transcends the relentless law of nature.
If we do not transcend nature, we remain bound to the people we cannot forgive, held in their vise grip. This principle applies even when one party is wholly innocent and the other wholly to blame, for the innocent party will bear the wound until he or she can find a way to release it—and forgiveness is the only way.”
by Philip Yancey
i have had some wonderfuld opertunties to visit friends not that i am not in school. i am not really looking forward to going back to school. meanwhile God is still amazing and doing amazing things in my life. tonight when I got home I listend to the song I surrender and sang it and meant it. though it never will pay anything back for what God has done for us its great to give youself to God just as he gave Himself for us to love him just as he first loved us and thats what its all about.
“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.”-Ephesians 2:1-2
I am so glad that I have found new life in Christ. Yet, I often find myself still struggling with disobeidance to God. Sometimes I give into lust, sometimes I don’t listen to what he has told me to do or I fail to honor my parents. This is why confession and repentance are important and must be an ongoing part of a Christians life. In the grace we get from God we find new stregnth to overcome our disobidient sinful nature and live by the Spirit. I thank God today that he is ever merciful and still faithful when we are faithless.
I have a new theme for this year. Last year was creation this year is new life. It is a focus on how Jesus gives us new life and when he first comes into our lives there is a ressurection of sorts. Jesus raised Lazerus from the dead and he can certaintly do that in our lives today. This theme probably wont last all year but just a season that way I can write on other things and move on to new topics.
Grace and Peace,
