I’ve been on a sort of “sabath” from tv shows and most secular culture for a month now. Today was the last day of this period and I will be re-engaging with pop culture. Please pray for me that I mantain my eyes on the Lord and find the balance of being in this world but not of this world. Please pray that I administer my time well, and give priority to the truly important things. Please pray that I won’t be distracted from God’s will. Please pray. :)
For a long time God has been speaking a lot to me about Identity. I have always been very concerned about being unique. About having “personality”, whatever that means. About building this very consciously crafted image that I project to the outside world, but somehow, it never seemed to fill the inside. It never seemed to make me “interesting” or loved, or any of the things I was trying to achieve.
Probably the quote in the bible that most speaks to me. I think I’ll have it tattooed. Maybe then it will finally sink in.
Such a lovely image
Has to be my prayer everyday.
“For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
If you are like me and find it hard to express your emotions then you will discover that it is hard to allow the Spirit to express himself through you. I know it’s hard but we have to step out of the shadows and give him freedom to do as he pleases. If you find it hard just imagine how hard it was for our Jesus, naked on the cross, for you. It’s time to lose the inhibitions for him.
So true in my life But I have faith that Jesus is already changing me.
So here’s a nice tidbit of church life. Remember that cake I posted earlier? Well, that cake, like I said was meant for guests that were coming to my house. Now, something interesting about those guests, I have not ever seen them in my life. “Whaaaat?” you say. Well, a little primer on the way church works around here.
God doesn’t only love me, he also likes me. He thinks I’m cute. He created me, and he likes my quirks. He gets me, and loves to show me his love. He likes me, exactly as I am.
