Oh Lord, Grant Me...Humility!

Humility! It seems to be the only way to keep our heads on straight, when dealing with individuals who feel they are infallible.

It is hard to not lose our mind, when someone is wrong (whether they know it or not) but yet keep insisting on being right. It can make anyone go insane.
Remaining humble is the best way to hand situations like that!

It's natural to want to prove our point and tell someone when they're wrong. However, remaing quiet and humbling ourselves is the best way to handle things.

I am dealing with someone with that infallible attitude right now. Everytime we have a disagreement, the individual feels the need to raise their voice, speak over me and refuses to hear that they're wrong or mistaken.
It is so stressful!
Later on after that disagreement, the individual would realize that they were wrong and still not say a word to me. At that moment, it is my job to be humble and not say "I told you so!"

It's tough, but humility is the only way to keep our heads above water.

God Bless!

My Poor Generation

I feel oh-so-sorry for my generation. I really do.
I think it's so sad how it seems like so many young people are just spiraling downward, and couldn't care less.

I'm always shocked and in awe when I see a guy (females are a little better sometimes) around my age--mid teens to mid twenties--reading on the bus or train. Especially if he's of African decent. It's just so rare that I do a double take.
Most people my age are concerned with parties, drugs, sex, violence--all the stereotypes actually. I hate saying that because I hate stereotyping, but it's so true.

It makes me not want to have any kids. If things are like this now, then I really can't imagine how it's going to be in fifteen to twenty years.
This is the exact reason I have a close relationship with my little brother and sister. I don't want them to turn out like some of the kids I see. It makes me so sick. I talk to them and make sure I let them know that I think they're so much better and can do much better than that.

I'm really praying for a change, otherwise It's not going to be a bright future---at all!

God's Word!

1 Corinthians 13:2

"And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity [love], I am nothing."

Love is very important! It's rewarded above having enough
faith to remove mountains!
That says a lot!
We need to make sure that we have love
there's no way to be a Christian--Christ-like
and not have Love. Not the kind of love that discriminates
and is only shown to certain types of people, but Love for all of God's creation!

My Prayer List & Thankfuls

I've gotten into the habit of Thanking God before asking for other things.
So, I'm gonna thank Him for what he's done and then ask him for what I need.

My Thankfuls:

~My loving Family
~Great Friends and my sweetheart
~Opportunities/hope of a future
~Sunny skies and rainy days :)
~God's Forgiveness and mercy

My Prayer List

~Strength( in all the ways)
~A good job

Of course, I left out many things. If I were to post all my prayers and thanks--I would never finish.

God Bless!!

Inspiration For The Week...

Going to Church on Sundays is like charging up for the week. The worship and praise and the word from God is a rejuvenating and can be like ammo to tackle the week ahead.

Once I'm sure my heart is right with God, a good day at Church is...inspiration for the week.

Hello readers,

I've been feeling really lonely for the past two months or so. I have people all around me, so it isn't a physical loneliness. I think that's it a spiritual loneliness that also affects me emotionally. I have been putting people and things before God. Times that I need to spend with God in some prayer and bible reading and singing, I spend it when other people or doing something else. And as a result I feel that the deeper relationship that my God and I have developed over the summer is becoming a little bit shallow.

The connection between me and God is what keeps me going. It's what puts a smile on my face everyday and not let things get me down. And I realize that the times when I get hurt and sad the easiest are the times when my heart is missing God's presence; times when I'm not spending enough alone time with him. And to fill the void, I may turn to someone else and generate temporary happiness from them, which never ends well.

I need to set a day and a back-up day(in case of emergency or something on the planned day), to have at least 2 hours of alone time with God. Although I read my bible and pray everyday, I think I need to have one day, just me and God, when I can sit for 2 hours and get refreshed for the week. I know that as long as I keep going to the power source, which is my God, to get my happiness...I wont need to rely on anyone or anything else for my permanant happiness! :)

God's Word!

Psalm 144: 15

"Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the lord."

Happy are the people whose God is the Lord. I am so happy that the God that truly Lord! He's not just in my head, or my heart, he's not just in the church...he is everywhere, he is Lord!
