Super Short Post

So I haven't posted in almost a month.... Oh well. 

It's kinda funny that even though I haven't posted, I've gained a follower over the past week or so. That's cool.

Anyways, on to the real post. At care group tonight, we talked about evangelism. The discussion covered the usual topics about evangelism, such as fear of man, prayer, "just open your mouth", etc.

But there was one thing that someone said that grabbed my attention-

"How much do we have to hate a person to not share the gospel with them?"

I have never thought about it like that... and you can swap it around too-

"How much do we have to love ourselves to not go out of our comfort zone and share the gospel?"

Really something to think about.... I know that these might seem exaggerated, but still...

It's about time

I want to change. Right now. No more am I going to be a "by-the-books-Christian".

I'm so happy right now. Why has it been so long?

Edit 1: I need you God. Without you I am nothing. I have nothing in me that can save me from Hell. Why do I resist so much? Get behind me Satan! I need your grace, Lord! Praise the Lord! Hallelujah!

Edit 2: You saved me when I was running full speed towards Hell! Thank you for your mercy, Lord! Thank you! You sacrificed your ONLY son, a PERFECT son, to save me, a horrible blight upon the universe! I have done NOTHING to earn your grace! Praise the Lord!

Spectacled Imminence

So, this morning, my right eye really fritzed out. Like went totally bonkers.

End result- I am now getting glasses. But just as back up for contacts. I am getting a new subscription for my contacts today, because I think my old ones were really irritating my eyes. So yeah that will be entertaining. 

And thats all.

Weekends Rulezorz.

So, today was awesome. I worked from 5 in the morning (haha yeah that was awesome, i blared screamo music for the first hour and a half before we opened. Good stuff) until 2 in the afternoon. Work in general was awesome because like every single "fun" person at CFA worked today, which made it immensely entertaining.

Then I had a band practice with my band for like the first time in two months. Yeah, it's been so crazy these past few months that we haven't been able to get together, but today was a good practice. We sketched up the framework for a new song, and did a cover of the song "All It Takes For Your Dreams To Come True" by A Skylit Drive. If you like post-hardcore then check them out.

And then I got to spend the rest of the day until right now with my cousin. That was hilarious. We drove over to the church property with a camera and filmed completely random movies with no scripts or whatever, we just winged it. We also ran into Nathan there, but didn't say much beyond "Hey". Haha he saw us filming this one hilarious part.... *when I was standing on top of my car, for your benefit Nathan* 

Anyways, the best quote from that whole time hanging with my cousin at the church has to be this- "Eekten Gleeben Globben Gloaben. AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!"

Haha rofl wow. Anyways, he's an awesome kid (my cousin).

And now I'm looking forward to Sunday and church tomorrow. And also (FRISBEE!!!!!!!)

Go Cardinals. I figured if they beat us they might as well win the super bowl. 

Have a good night yall, and continue being awesome as you are.

I have so much time....

So, I'm sitting here at CPCC's Levine Campus in Matthews. I've got 1 hour and 15 minutes until my next class. I'm so glad that CPCC has computer labs....

I've got so much stuff I want to do right now. I want to play music. I want to listen to music. I want to play frisbee. I want to go camping. Yes, I want to go camping RIGHT NOW. I want to play football. I want to armwrestle one of my coworkers at CFA. I'll beat him one of these days. I want to play certain computer games. I want the Ipod Touch that I ordered last night to arrive right now. I want to graduate high school right now. I want to get a new car right now. I want to hang out with all my friends. I want to see some of my friends that I haven't seen in years. I want to be 18 right now. There are so many others.....

But, I've still got a lot of time before any of this happens. Some of it may happen tonight, tomorrow, in the next couple days...... Some of it may happen in weeks, months, years.... I've got so much time before me.

What am I going to do with all that time? The 'practical American' inside me says, "Save up money!! Finish college!! Buy your own house!!"

But that isn't what I really need to be thinking about. After all, what am I even here for? To praise God, and carry out the great commission. With that in my mind, why am I so bothered by all these other things that I "don't have time for"? I don't need to have time for them. They are not what's important.

Well, I've still got an hour until my class. Guess that I better get busy...
