We do this at church and it's really kinda fun. It always makes me ask more questions and I think God likes that we ask questions or just say what we think. It's called SOAP (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer) Mine for today was 1 Corinthians 2:2-For I determined not to know anything except Jesus Christ and him crucified. My O-I read this and it just blew me is so BIG! ..not to know ANYTHING EXCEPT Jesus Christ and him crucified. knowing only the man, the saviour, the Son--His life and His death. Not only what he lived and low he lived which is more than i"ll probably ever know but also how he died. He sacrificied DAILY...for the end and he saw the end. He lived for that "I" could live...WOOWWW!! My A-The Word..Jesus WAS the Word. Applying this would be to live what i am reading every day...every day. I can't just pick and choose the days I want to live as Jesus did...dying to my desires and all the things I think are right. knowing not only Jesus Christ but also him crucified. This IS big but it's a little every day..little by little. my P-i prayed my own little can pray your own if you want. But I do have to say this...that no matter how "GOOD" i think i am or all the good things i've done..none of it matters without JESUS. He is the ONLY way in this life, in 2008, and the only way in the life to come. I can live for here and now or for's the easy, most common choice to live for right now...all the things i can SEE NOW but will be gone tomorrow... but it's the hard, less traveled road to live for the things i cannot see now but will ONE day see! I may not live my life exactly as it should be and i've been a hypocrite, full of pride, full of doubt and fear, a liar, a deceiver...the list could go on....but i know one thing...i AM a follower of JESUS CHRIST and i will do my best to make HIM look GOOD. is the GOOD news after all...;)

Forgetting what is behind

Speaking of FORGETTING...i totally forgot about my blog site until i remembered (which means i forgot about this too) my sisters blog site. So i thought since i remembered mine, i would write a little something.

When i was a kid, i got in trouble for forgetting stuff..forgetting to clean my room or do my chores or whatever...It is so easy to FORGET things in life, isn't it? So then why is it so hard to forget our mistakes and sins that we commit so often? In Philippians 3 it says," No, dear brothers ans sisters, I am still not all I should be, but I am focusing all my energies on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us up to heaven."

One thing that stuck out to me here..."but i am focusing ALL MY ENERGIES on this ONE thing..." Why does it take ALL our energy to move on, to go forward with our lives? Maybe he was saying that because it is just REALLY important that we don't let the things in the past dictate where we go in the future. That we don't get so distracted with our faults and mistakes that we FORGET who we are in Christ, because of His blood shed for us.

It's just cool. Our God is cool. So for once in my life, i'm just going to be like a kid, which God thinks is good, not get in trouble for it and FORGET!!!

You can take your work with you...

So for most of my life, i've wanted to massage. I love it. I love that it helps people and makes them feel better. Just last night, I was in the bed with my sister in this lovely hotel room and she complained of her arm and hand hurting from working on the computer too much. After 3 or 4 minutes of massaging her arm, she was feeling better and more relaxed. It's amazing what physical touch will do.

But you know, i think more than loving massage--i love that it lets me go wherever i want to go. my mission in life is to first please God and obey Him and then to GO wherever it is i can go to help people. I don't know all the things God has in store for me but I know they will be great.

I only wish that everyone could love what they do, be able to take it with them wherever they go and make some money doing it! I guess it's a little like telling others about Christ. i mean, c'mon...HE SAVED OUR LIVES, HE DIED FOR US AND LOVED US UNCONDITIONALLY!..that should be enough to love to tell others, to take it with us wherever we go and to fill up our treasures in heaven.

So next time i massage someone at their house, i'll remember that not only am i working but i am taking the message of Christ with me.
