Ps 40:16

But may all who search for you be filled with joy and gladness. May those who love your salvation repeatedly shout "The Lord is great!"

Of all the characteristics God can choose from he chose Loving and Forgiving to wear on his sleeve. This is the God I serve so I will shout "The Lord is great!"

Isaiah 10:15

But can an ax boast greater power than the person who uses it?
Is the saw greater than the person who saws?
Can a rod strike unless a hand moves it?
Can a cane walk by itself?

Like all tools we have a purpose, a job, potential. But unless we let God use us we can't do much.

So this weekend was pretty fun. I went snowboarding at Boyne and Nub's Nab and it was so much fun even though it was just me and my dad sheddin the pow. My mom sat inside doing bible study or something. Surprisingly enough Petoskey Michigan has some really good food. It was weird for a birthday tho because I didn't get to see any of my friends but bdays don't mean much anyways so it really doesn't matter. Tonight I went to Pei Wai for the first time and it was so freaking good!! haha im going there every day now. My mom's fortune was that she was going to get a surprise. I told her I got a girl pregnant. Her response: "A girl likes you?! That is a surprise!" So sad yet so true hahaha. So just to top off the great weekend my dad and I sat and had a few cigars and now here I am.

So what did I learn from all this? I learned that it is impossible for my dad to get deep, 7 hour car rides aren't bad and I'm finally ready for warm weather.

Things I learn in Christian Thought

So as Christians the Bible tells us we need to be sure of what we do not see ie God. So how do we know God exists? Well there are two kinds of "knows". The first is how you know that you are reading my blog right now. The other kind is how you know ur mom, dad, bff, or anyone ur super close to. It's a deeper. What if Paul is saying that we don't necessarily need proof to know God is there but rather we need to know him like we know our family members. It is a relationship after all right?

Just one of my many faults

I feel bad saying this but I have an extreme hatred for someone. All I do is be nice to them and they ignore me every time and pretend I'm not there. I don't understand someone that goes out of there way to be a complete jerk. so this is the convo I dream of having with them...
C: Im sorry but i hate you and everything you stand for.
E: You hate Jesus?
C: If you think you stand for God you're only kidding yourself.

You can spend all day trying to prove or disprove God but at the end of the day it takes a step of faith to be on either side. I really don't think anyone can prove He is real but I can tell you why I believe He is. Look in a mirror and say "I was created by accident." He loved me first so I will love Him back.

in order

-I was on Homecoming court
-Silent Night was sweet
-I hung with TC people a lot more than usual
-Spirit week was fun
-We had our hc pics in the garden chapel haha
-Dinner was wonderful but the dance was the worst thing in my life. Timothy is being super dumb this year and cracking down on everything so now the music at the dances is horrible.
-After party was lame too so the whole night kinda sucked.
-I liked when Mike Murphy said that as the body of Christ we need to be able to correct each other out of love but it is hard because people think it is judging.
-I like Sundays because they are relaxing and very much needed most of the time.
-Right now I'm thinking about people in my past and I really miss some of them.
-I love the LSD series hahaha

2 of 2

Turn off ur phone, ur lights and ur mind. Be still and know that I am God. Listen with ur hearts so that He can soften them and mold them into what they need to be. Ps 4:23-"Guard your heart above all else for it determines the course of your life"

1 of 2

She can sing all the songs
She can pray those good prayers
She can give those good sermons

However I wish she set a better example because most of what I hear is discouraging, careless and said in anger and frustration. I miss the old her because she is always so grumpy now and quite frankly unpleasant to be around because she always has to be right.
