I need to chose to do things more despite not having the feeling to go along with it. I think I wait to much for the feeling to come before acting upon it. The feeling is supposed to be a confirmation that im supposed to do it, and its the right time and when its not there I think ahh well. Prob wont be beneficial and productive if im not "feelin it". Ill do it when I really have that feeling where I actually want to do it. So ill be happy when im doing it! Then it will be worthwhile! (My way of thinking)
YELLS- BAH HUM BUG TO THAT WAY OF THINKING!
Cool and collected- Because that way of thinking then determines how Im living...
And that way of living.. isn't really living. Because its living for yourself. And that only leads to emptiness.
No, don't gloat over me Though I fall, though I fall I will rise again Though I sit here in darkness The Lord, the Lord alone He will be my light I will be patient As the Lord Punishes me For the wrongs I've done Against Him After that He'll take my case Bringing me To light and the justice For all I have suffered
There are a lot of people in the world. I will never know them and they will never know me. Im sitting in Starbucks, having one of those moments where you look at peoples faces as they walk in and out and have no idea what they are going through in life. I see the little teenage girls and can see the insecurity. It saddens me. I see the adults and who knows what they have been through or are currently. Crazy. We are all victims of insecurity but I think it takes a long time to be at peace with it and not let it rule our actions. In high school it seems to most certainly rule over the masses. Sucks. Thank goodness for younglife ;)
Winters approaching fast. I hate it so much. I don't like to think about how it's not going to be sunny for the next 7-8 months. What a Joke. WHAT a joke. Goodbye sandals goodbye tan and goodbye outdoor activities.
Delighting in God is sweet. I think God is trying to make it be a foundation in my life. You know what I love most about delighting in him? I feel so satisfied content and PLEASED with him, where I'm at with him and in circumstances. So not only is just that sweet but on top of that he promises you that if you delight in him he will give you the desires of your heart!! CRAZYY!! Thats a promise folks!! Psalm 37:4 Whata God.
Dear God, I delight in you and am pleased with you. Now my hearts desire is to send winter away forever. Amen.
I think this is going to be very good for me to have. I have never done it before. Never enjoyed writing my thoughts down, I get bored easily. But my sister wants to know what's going on in my life and she encouraged me to get a blog. As well as for this season in my life I feel God encouraging me to start writing things down. I am actually excited. I have no idea who my audience is going to be. I think it might just be you and me Kell! :)
Honesty- I don't like being vulnerable and deeply honest except to a select view of chosen people. But I am going to do my best to say what I think and feel without hesitation or fear. Thats hard for me.
A Heads up- This is going to be mostly about my thoughts about life and where I am at on this journey, however, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and came to earth to give us eternal life, destroy the works of evil, and show us a better way to live and love. So in light of that I am compelled to live radically sold out for him. I hope that I continue to look and sound less and less like the rest of the World. That would be sweet! So yeah just know this is going to be a blog about my walk and growth with God!
A Prayer I need to get on paper!
God I want to look like you. I want my life to reflect my intimacy with you. I want the fullness of what you offer. I dont want to settle during this short life on earth I have. Help me to be patient. Patient with you and your timing and patient with personal growth. I know who I want to be and what I want to look like so help me to just be faithful with what I have now. Give me a better perspective on things, your perspective. Help me to walk in my identity as a Mighty Son of God. May you always be the be all end all! Thank you for your love and faithfulness. Continue to break down my walls and erase my doubt. Help me to not let my circumstances define me and my joy. I proclaim I will have self control with my tongue, money, and spare time. And I proclaim I will be grateful for all that I have and give you the thanks and praise whether I feel like it or not! God you are super cool. Thanks for loving me perfectly even when I don't see it. Thank you for two amazing weeks of seeing your Power and Love in Orange county! It was a glimpse at the revival to come! I truly believe it! Please continue to..
