God’s words and revelations for me need to get out of my brain and enter into my experiential life
by working. it. out!!
how ironic is it that it is so hard for us to trust and follow the voice of the one true Savior, Friend, Father who loves us and would only lead us to greater and better things?
juxtapose this with how easy it is (sometimes) to be tempted by the voice of the greatest liar, cheater, counterfeiter, and accuser in the universe.
i know a genuine, written entry has been a long-time coming…but then again, i’m not sure who i’m talking to (if i am even hehe). but thanks for reading, if you are ;)
i’ve been getting the feeling lately i’ve been settling…and the fact that that bothers me so much reveals something about me. i wasn’t designed to just settle, be content. for a while now, i’ve felt like the “everything will work out okay for me” mentality has dominated my life, and thus, weakened my drive for excellence, accomplishment, and a tangible vision.
i’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately (namely the past couple days)…
and i feel heavy on my heart that i won’t rest content with mere content-ness — this is not only selfish, but also lazy! the hope of a simple and safe life is hoping for a stagnant life. but the Lord has made me for bigger, greater, and more visionary plans!
it’s time to pursue that with greater persistence and fervor in prayer…

We are creating a permanent class of unemployed Americans.

i particularly liked his part about how phones (and any technology for that matter) are to improve our lives, and doing so doesn’t necessarily mean more features, options, buttons, and applications…
mesmerizing video of how pringles are made…
i’m probably not the only one who stopped and hung my mouth agape during this entire video…
i just read an article that acknowledges (and actually, the entire media controversy over the gun control debate shows) how those who responsibly own guns and/or other firearms probably feel unfairly misrepresented by those who have committed the recent atrocities in small towns, cities, schools, and malls.
we, as news-reading and sensible people understand how this can arise, right?
how come the world is so reluctant to recognize this same phenomenon about most christians? most christians aren’t like the hate-filled westboro baptist church. most christians aren’t the Bible-thumping, judgmental people the media loves to feed on.
and yet, so many look down on christians because they see these extreme outliers and…well, out comes the blanket over all christians.
why this double standard?
just putting that out there…
