Just so you know, thirteen followers of mine, I have officially applied to the Moody Bible Institute. Can hardly wait until April!
In 2009, we spent twice as much printing the Congressional Record as we did fighting slavery domestically.
It’s time for Congress to put their money where their monuments are. Visit www.ImWithLincoln.com to ask your Senator to double the funding used to address the issue of modern-day slavery.
The Story of Ian & Larissa
We must be careful not to justify our emotions with our logic when our logic has been compromised by our emotions.
“Reality the iconoclast once more. Heaven will solve our problems, but not, I think, by showing us subtle reconciliations between all our apparently contradictory notions. The notions will all be knocked from under our feet. We shall see that there never was any problem.” -A Grief Observed
Just finished it! It is quite the eye opening book. But I will say, don’t start it unless you intent to finish it. It is a real downer if read halfway through.
So we just found out where we are going for practicum (3 week missions trip). We are driving to Houston Texas staying for 10 days then cruising to Jamaica, Grand Caman Islands, and Cozumel, Mexico for the rest. I am sooo ridiculously excited for this! Sharing the love of Christ on a ship!
I dig this.
Definition of Julianna
“Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
I was thinking about this verse when we went through it at HSE today, and I wanted to share something I realized. In the above verse Jesus didn’t say, he must please himself, and follow me; he was very clear that one must DENY himself. I feel like a lot of Christians, with myself included, get so wrapped up in the idea that the only way God guides us is through our desires and emotional preferences. And I would agree that God can use our desires to speak to us. However, I have recently experienced the opposite. Currently, I am being called to do something entirely against my own desires, and I am having to make the choice to deny myself and my personal preferences. To sum it up, God has been making it clear to me that His will for my life may not align with my personal dreams and aspirations, but that’s okay, because my life isn’t about me. And I don’t need to worry because when I delight myself in Him, His desires will become my desires, and that is my prayer.
