An Exhortation

First of all, I commend you on your choice to be a shepherd to God's flock and to dedicate your life to bringing lost souls to Christ. Yours is an extremely difficult job and is getting more and more difficult each day. I pray that God will be with you and watch over you as you fulfill the mission that He has assigned to you.

Unusual Witness

Hahahaha...this is what I wrote for a secular lit class today! I wanted to switch out literary works and wasn't sure what I wanted to work with all semester until my professor made a comment that the theory we were working with at the time worked under the impression that literary perfection should seem as if it fell from Heaven, complete and infallible in and of itself. She also suggested using a canon. Well...there is only one canon I know that fell from Heaven and is complete and infallible...the Holy Bible! So here was my paper! Enjoy...

Random Wisdom and Funny Stuff #1

I will not look for perfection in another person until i have attained perfection myself. Since i know this will never be, let me learn to accept things as they are, and stop manipulating them into changing. Let me look for a wiser approach to life from myself, not from other people.


If I could but describe the unending, unmeasurable flood of love, joy, and peace that has been poured upon me since the Holy Spirit caught my heart on fire...but man's words are sorely and utterly useless to explain because nothing man knows can compare with the love that is in Christ Jesus.

"AHA!" Moment - Changing Desires

Ok, so I had this "AHA!" moment this morning while I was driving to school. I used to always think that living a Godly life meant that I would deprive myself of all the things in life that were not about Him.

Thoughts on Psalm 139:23-24

Psalm 139:23-24 (NKJV)
"Search me, O God, and know my heart.; test me and know my thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends You, and lead me along the path of everlasting life."

"AHA!" Moment - FEAR and Conforming

Ok so I am working on something that God has placed upon my heart lately. I truly have no idea WHAT it is yet...but I'm working on it. I know that sounds a little strange but it's kinda like how a sculptor talks about this huge piece of rock he is carving on. Sometimes they say that the art already exists within the rock and they have no idea what it will be until it comes out and they are finished. They are bringing the art out of the stone... Anyway, I guess that is a good metaphor.

My Personal Pentecost!

I have been praying for something specific ever since the day I rededicated my life to God. I have been praying for God to reveal Himself to me and to reveal His calling for my life. It has been about a month and a half and my prayer has now been answered! Well, sort of... God does have a habit of only revealing a portion of things to come.
