Please keep my uncle in your prayers.. His name is Jason, and he's 32 with a wife and little girl. He was rushed to the hospital yesterday because he couldn't breathe. The doctors found blood clots in his lungs, and now found that he also has a blood infection, which makes it impossible to do surgery. He's in the ICU, but just slipped into a coma, and one step away from life support. The doctors aren't giving it much hope.. BUT! We serve an amAzing God who can do ANYTHING...

'For in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither life nor death, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord'

Not my will... but Thine.

This is something I've been studying lately, and I though I'd share some of it with you all... my mind really does run in circles that most people have a hard time understanding, so if this doesn't make sense for some reason... sorry lol ..

So this morning I was reading Matthew 26. The chapter where Judas betrays Jesus and Peter denies Him 3 times... As I was reading I was thinking... (good thing to do..) about how Jesus must have felt to have someone He loved and trusted so dearly betray Him like that. Yet He knew he would.. When He went to Gethsemane He knew it was just a matter of time before He would be taken away. What I'm getting to though is verse 42 when He is crying out to God.. "O Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, Thy will be done." I love it because, even in the midst of all that was going on, He could still say "not my will, but Thine". How many of us can say that and mean it? For me personally, that's something I pray every day... For God to do His will in my life. Yet I still try and take control of things myself... It's hard not to! Even though I know God has it all under control, it's still hard to really and truly give him complete and total control over every area of my life. I've taken things into my own hands a couple of times, and needless to say, it's caused nothing but heartache. I mean, it seems SO easy to just be like 'yeah, God, you can do whatever you want with my life. I'm Yours'... But the true test comes when things don't go how you want them to. You say you would go wherever God calls you, do whatever He'd have you to do.. but would you really? If He called you to be a missionary in Haiti, how would you like that? Or if He called you to a life of singleness? My guess is you'd be going "what was I thinking??" But here's the thing... He won't call you to something that you hate. Yeah being a missionary over in some 3rd world country would be hard, but He would give you a heart for it. And not ever getting married would be hard as well, but you would learn that, while it would be nice to be married, God is really all you need. Kinda like in Proverbs 37:4 how it says to delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.. A lot of people take that verse the wrong way. "I REALLY want a new car, so I'm going to delight myself in the Lord so He'll give me one!!" Not. How. It. Works.... When you do delight yourself in the Lord, He'll put His desires for you in your heart. And then fulfill them. "God has editing rights over our prayers: He will... edit them, correct them, bring them in line with His will, and then hand them back to us to be resubmitted"

  • "I delight to do Thy will, o my God.." -Psalm 40:8
  • "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done.." -Matthew 6:10
  • "... I come to do Thy will, o God" -Hebrews 10:7
"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will you give you the desires of your heart"

And I, more than anyone, have SO much more to learn. This is just the beginning..

great minds run in great circles

To my dear and faithful blog readers:

HI!! So right now I'm really happy, and feel like blogging, so that's what I'm doing... Actually there are other things I'd rather be doing, but can't. So this will do. I don't really have anything imparticular to say... so I guess I'll just tell you about my day, and the whatever else comes to me.... So my day started off totally mixed up with this whole time change and everything... I got up and looked at my clock that said it was 8:30, which meant it was really 9:30 and we had to leave for church in an hour. Right.. so I go and wake everyone up to start getting ready, and half of my family ends up being sick. No, not from me, they were already sick.. haha. Anywho, no one was getting up, so I went back to bed. Well my mom comes in an hour later and asks if I'm going to church or not.. I look at my clock and was like 'mom, it's already started'.. she proceeds to tell me that, no it hadn't, the clock changed automatically. I still wasn't convinced so I went and looked and everyone else's clocks and they all said the same thing; mine was right. To make a long, boring story short... we all ended up staying home. Most my little siblings are still sick and we had some other things going on, so it's prolly better that we did anyway. But yeah, this time change thing really gets me confused!! And I lose a WHOLE hour of sleep. Not that I really care... haha

Well besides that.. we were cleaning up some stuff in our yard and my dad lifted a board and this huge, ugly snake was under it. He just nonchalantly picks it up, while I'm in the background (and by 'background' I mean at least 6ft away) screaming. (I cannot handle snakes. At all. *shivers*)... oh, and I've been listening to Owl City all day. Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE Owl City? Adam Young is pretty much amazing. Anyone that can write such cool songs, play the piano, AND has an awesome voice, to me, is amazing. Now Mark is over and we're having a crazy discussion on everything from Napoleon Dynamite and relationships to artists and church, while chocolate chip cookies are baking in the oven... You can almost ALWAYS count on there being chocolate chip cookies baking if you ever come to my house. It's just kind of a part of who we are.. lol AND we just finished playing Don't Wake Daddy.. I think the name pretty much says it all. It's a game for 7 year olds. =D Ok, well I guess that's about as random as you can get, and as random as I'm gonna get. For now... hehe.. hope you all are having an amazing Lord's day!!

Friday Fun

So I've seen other people do this, and I decided to have a go at it myself... if for nothing else than the sake of something new on my blog. :) Anywho, every Friday I'll post 7 random things that I'm thinking or that happened or just whatever. Ya know, random. So for my first 'official' random post....

  1. I have a headache. Ugh.
  2. I don't like dogs.
  3. I think pink has to be one of the most revolting colors on earth.
  4. I'm baby sitting right now...
  5. My room is yellow. :/
  6. The sight of blood makes me.. sick.
  7. I love debating people. On anything and everything.

Yeah, that wasn't so bad... haha...

Happy Friday, peoples!!

Tooth Boy!!

So my little brother's first tooth came out just a little bit ago, and ever since then he's been calling himself 'tooth boy'. I told him he needed to go get dressed for bed and he was like 'you should be nicer to this sweet little tooth boy, Hannah'. I guess he envisions himself as some superhero or something now.. it's cute!

The Ultimate Sacrifice...

There is a brunette and a blonde hanging over the edge of a cliff off a piece of rope. They realize that the rope will break if one of them doesn't let go and they will both fall to their deaths. The brunette starts this big heartwarming speech about how she is going to sacrifice herself for her friend. At the end of the speech the blonde starts clapping..
