So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin. - James 4:17 Hm. Words for me to think about.
Tame the emotions and build a foundation for it to stand on. Lesson learned from Friday night. I am, in the end, driven by a passion for God, I know that part. But I’m also very weak in the Scripture. That will need to change. Praise God for all He’s done and will do.
I don’t know what it is I want right now… Such a mixed feeling. Strange thing. In another news, I think God spoke through me at prayer meeting today. After I said everything I had to say I couldn’t form anything for myself to speak anymore. It was as if another were speaking through me. That’s an amazing feeling and an amazing thing to see. Praise God for that. Sad to say...

Father God, I have many words I can use to pray. But many of them are empty things I would say just to say something. But God, here is my true prayer. I pray Lord that you would take my life, how little and weak of a life it is, into your hands and use it for what you will. I know I am weak and vulnerable, incapable unless you empower me to do things. You have shown me more grace than I am worthy...

forgivenandfreed: “But if there was ever a time for us to go to extremes for our God, it is now. The truth of the gospel is being diluted, dumbed down, and trampled upon by the very ones entrusted to keep it sacred and whole. It may seem ‘unnecessary’ to get on your knees for multiple hours each and every day, …

Worship goes beyond the walls of the church and beyond one night of music. Let’s truly be the generation that does church in the streets and hallways. Time to start living it out! This fire’s just burning away.

Floored. Mind blown. Expectations blown to pieces. In awe. On my knees in thankful prayer. My God how many ways to describe how good He truly is. There is nothing, absolutely NOTHING, more glorious and awe-inspiring to see than an entire body of Christ rising up to sing praises and living out their faith together. Doesn’t matter the background or the school or the church or the grade, all...

Praise Night thoughts
Praise night. 20 hours away. Thankful, beyond thankful, that God’s given us this one to lift him up in praise. In SCHOOL, what’s more. The place where any Christian student will have his faith challenged by a whole slew of problems. And here we are, answering back saying that we are still faithful. Now that’s amazing. Praise God for that. But then with all this in school…...

All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their...– Acts 4:32-33
For all the grace and blessings poured out onto us as the people of God, it would all be for nothing if we do not put it to good use. If God has given you any talent, any resource, he calls you to reach out and use it for the sake of His kingdom. Let him be glorified through all we do. Praise God for all He’s done and will do!

iwilltrustinyou: As a man looks for a girlfriend, the most important quality she must possess (as his potential future wife and a person who will have a great deal of influence in his life) is salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ, and a life lived in obedience to Him. In 2 Corinthians 6:14; Paul tells us not to be “unequally yoked” with unbelievers. If a woman does not have faith in Jesus Christ,...

Had to pick up a stray, dying, possibly crippled and sick cat and carry him off Matt Lau’s property today because we couldn’t afford to have him around because he couldn’t have a home there. Broke my heart. Never had to force an animal AWAY. Madness. Hopefully he’ll find someone to take him in.
For all that’s happened, for all that it costs, for all the what if’s and everything else that comes with the finality of what we decided… no regrets. And I can only say no regrets because God’s been good enough to me to show me a bigger picture that we must all hold on to. I can only say it because I realize the benefits far outweigh the costs. No regrets. Only forward...

Monitor: Sir, maybe we should try to help him?
Computer: No. He did this to himself.
Just had some very nice father-son bonding time. Apparently when my dad was young he was a freaking party animal. A very fobby dude fresh from China… but still a crazy maniac. Who knew? I don’t think I can live up to his reputation LOL
God I thirst for your Spirit again. Come and fill our hearts again. There’s a yearning in my heart for a holy fire to burn again and not to just be satisfied with the mediocre. There is so much more left to do, so much more left for you to show us. Go right ahead and do it then, we’re wide open to all you have to offer. Praise You for all You’ve done and will do.
