Dead. Every time.
Every time I read that.
James is my favorite. It punches you in the face when you feel high and mighty, and it elevates you when you feel without purpose.
“You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds, and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” Ephesians 4:22-24 niv.
A Christian’s disregard for their past, is a disregard for the significance of the sacrifice made for our salvation, and the value our Father has placed on us as the benefactors of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
Remember that you were spiritually dead, and are now marked the Craftsman’s seal of genuinity.
You could search for a reason as to why my night is not perfect.
But, my friend, you will not find one.
My aunt got an ipad, and is selling her kindle fire. She said I can have it, and bumped down the price super-cheap, knowing I was restricting my spending to bare essentials to save up for YWAM.
I know for the sake of packing and traveling, a kindle is ideal. I could fit the books I need for DTS on there, as well as my bible, and many books that I will have to leave at home, simply because luggage space is limited.
But at the same time, I love just having books. I love, reading them, writing in them, underlining, highlighting, using them to reference, lending them to others to read. I love their SMELL!
So, what should I do? Is it smarter to acquire the kindle, or to stay with a limited amount of books? Thoughts? Opinions?
“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him, my Savior and my God.” Psalm 42:11.
Sometimes, He just blows me away.
so. freaking. funny. lolol!
The book of Acts is now the book of Ethan.
Thunderstorms. Means tonight is going to consist of writing, bible, and pictures with my dog! :D
Philippians 4:12-13 NLT
I love this.
Our Father’s awesome love and immeasurable strength is constant, no matter what season of your life. Make that word synonymous with God: constant. He is constantly with us, constantly loving us, constantly after our affection- and who is like Him! Who is deserving of our affection like our Lord, Whose words were great enough to speak the universe into existence yet whispered breath into our own lives.
He is SO amazing. All things are possible through God!
Psalm 51:17 NLT.
So, guys. I’m preeeetty sure that NOWHERE in Genesis does it say, “and the Lord said, ‘let there be Almond Joy mochas!’”
But wow, I soooo believe He could have! SO GOOD!!!
