Thoughts from Reading

My mom just got Greg Laurie's newest devotional in the mail two weeks ago. I started reading it yesterday and can't put it down. He writes about how to handle "giants" that may be present in your life and uses David as an example. Here are two excerpts:

"The thought of God toward you began before He ever flung a star into space. Then he wrote your name in His heart. It was graven in the palm of His hands before the sky was stretched out in the heavens." --Quote taken from Alan Redpath in The Making of a Man of God (Studies in the Life of David)

"As I look back over my own life, I can't remember a single time God has ever given me a detailed blueprint of all that I was to do. I may have had a sense of what was coming, but I had no idea of when it would happen or where it would happen or how it would happen. I would take one step and then he would show me the next one and the next one. Or he'd have me wait for a while between steps, staying tuned to His frequency for further instructions. The truth is, God's way becomes plain when we start walking in it. Obedience to revealed truth guarantees guidance in matters yet to be revealed." --Greg Laurie in Dealing with Giants

Happy Valentines Day

"I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you." (Jeremiah 31:3)

"Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!" (1 Chronicles 16:34)

"Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations." (Deuteronomy 7:9)

"It was not because you were more in number than any other people that the LORD set his love on you and chose you, for you were the fewest of all peoples." (Deuteronomy 7:7)

"You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might." (Deuteronomy 6:5)

Work

So I started my new job Monday as Webmaster/Programmer. As I said previously, I'm still at the same place but with a different position. Things have been relatively busy. I can't say I've really accomplished anything yet, but I am learning a lot. It's exciting while at the same time overwhelming.

Life in an office is kind of strange. I had gotten used to cubicle life and acquired the ability to drown out noise. On one hand it's a good and needed change. On the other, it's kind of lonely.

Hey, It's A Good Day...

Ever hear the FFH song "It's A Good Day"? Good song and I've got the words in my head.

"Say hey, it’s a good day
Even if things aren’t going my way
Jesus is Lord and I am saved
So, say hey, it’s a good day."

Anyway, I think today should be a good today. Silver Bay is catering us lunch in here at work, so that should be good. I'm really hungry. My brother got a job at the new Outback they're building in Easley. It opens November 1st. Very exciting. Hmmm...now if we could only get a Flatrock in Easley. The rumors are still circling of a Target/Old Navy/Starbucks being built where the old Saco Lowell plant sits. Eventually, there won't even be a need to drive all the way to Greenville.

Bible study was really good Tuesday night. Dr. Jordan is just doing an excellent job. We talked about Calvanism/Arminianism, predestination, personality traits of God, and tons of other stuff. We've got two weeks left of this session, then a week off, then back for six more weeks of theology. This spring, the Pastor is going to be teaching Old Testament Theology I, II, & III. I'm excited.

Wednesday night's Lost was confusing, but good. It always is though. And Alias. Well, we just won't go there. Needless to say, it was very upsetting last night. These are my two must-see shows.

More later.

New Goodies!

Yay! I'm so excited. I ordered two books and a CD Friday and they came yesterday. :) The CD is the new Casting Crowns, "Lifesong". I love it! It's just as good as the first. And the books...[re]Understanding Prayer by Kyle Lake & The Naked Christian by Craig Borlase. I started reading the second one last night and it's pretty good so far. We'll see.
