I'm fully aware that I have not updated this very much lately. This has largely to do with 2 different things. 1. I don't have regular access to a computer yet. And 2. I really don't have much that I want to or know that I can share.
A few years ago Dan Burgoyne (current pastor of NEO Church, but former pastor of 707) taught a series called "Counting Stars" at 707. It was based on the life of Abraham, who I've always related to for some reason. I had burned this series to CD back when he first taught it because it spoke to me so deeply. I recently started listening to them again. He talks about how our faith is going to be tested and is very applicable to every day life.
Anyway, listening to those teachings it felt like life was being imparted to me in ways that I haven't had in a really long time. So I decided to look up NEO Church and see if they had a podcast. They did. Apparently God really wanted me to hear about Abraham, because as it would happen, One of his more recent messages there was called "Outrageous Faith". Which ended up being basically the same stuff I have on cd, except deeper and more insightful.
A friend recently challenged me, too, that I'm really rather angr with God. This brought some interesting revelation to me. I realized that when someone is mad at God, but unwilling to admit this, their anger is redirected towards everyone else around them. Which isn't really fair because often times it comes out on people who haven't actually done anything to earn it.
On a kind of random note, it actually really bothers me when all of my paragraphs in a blog entry are of similar lengths.
As I look to the year ahead, it overwhelms me a bit. But at the same time, I have hope that it will bring some resolution and understanding of some things. Working 2 jobs takes up much of my time, but I'm working on finding some new boundaries on my time. I have an interesting situation going on with a fender bender I was in a couple years ago. Really, it could barely be called even a fender bender because there was literally no damage to either vehicle. Can't go into it right now, cause of different reasons, but its really a funny story that perhaps I can share some day. However, if whoever reads this could remain in prayer for God's favor with me in said situation, I would greatly appreciate it.
On an ending note, I love you all. I thank God regularly for the people I have in my life.
Ps. Merry Christmas!

You see, a big reason I have a great dislike for girls in general is because I know how they think... and its not pretty all the time. But I do not understand all the time how guys process things, so they are much more fascinating.
That's my theory for the day. The end.
