So.. I know i've already written a little on this, but i feel the need to write more.... cause during my quiet time about 10 minutes ago i re-read it... and it had a little more powerfulness when i added the rest of the chapter to it... Romans 12:9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. 14. Bless those who persecute you;bless and do not curse. 19. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. 21. Do not be overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good. So, yea! Jesus spoke to me with this.... because i know alot of time i do not treat others better than i would treat myself..... That is food for thought numero uno. And for dos... As some of you know... i've been working at Camp ChoYeh, a christian camp in Texas. And it is HARD! It is extremly difficult to stay on track with your own spiritual track when your trying to guid kids on theirs. God has shown me alot in the past 3 weeks about myself and what i need to chill out about and what i need to get more serious about. Durring the 3rd week i was there kids actually came, and it was a new experience for me... and by the midle of the week, my spiritual tank needed to be refilled because i had been pouring out all over these kids and not really getting that much back. All i wanted to do was come home cause A. i found out i had shin splints and that was why it hurt to walk, B. I had a new car waiting on my at my house. and C. i knew my friends where having tons of fun without me. Then i remembered Brian had written in the bible he gave me for graduation a verse in Hebrews and marked it... i remembered it was encouraging.. but didnt remember what it said. When i was at a very low point God lifted my spirits and reminded me that it was all in his hands... and he had it undercontrol. God dosnt call the qualified, he qualifies the called. Hebrews 13:20 May the God of Peacewho through the blood of eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he wrok in us what is pleasing to him through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. Also.... I am getting ready to go to Utah with my church on out mission trip that has been happening every year for the past 7 years... this will be my 4th year. but directly after i get back i have to back to Cho Yeh... and i am all stressed and worn out. and just really am second guessing all of this buisiness and all i want to do is be lazy and unpleasing to God... and just lay out all day and every day... The Devil is putting all these things in my head that actually sound alot more fun than putting up with a bunch of kids for the rest of the summer.... I decide to read my bible tonight instead of in the morning... and yesterday me and Fresh were discussing our favorite books in the bible... mine being James... i remembered i hadnt read anything from him in a while... flipped to James 1 verse 2 Consider it pure joy my brothers whenever you face trials of many kinds, because the testinf of your faith developes perserverance. FAVORITE verse... I mean it was already my favorite verse... and its memorized... but it was shuved in the back of my head... Thank you Jesus for pulling it back to the front!
