Late nights

Hey everyone, this past week Max W., who now has a blog, has stayed at my house for a few days because his partents are out of town. We have stayed up very late all three nights he has been here. Right now, it is almos midnight and I still have to get ready for bed. We just got done watching Hitch. There are a couple scenes in that movie that are hilarious. The dancing scene and the shock and awe scene are my favorites. I am glad to see that people hate my music video(jenni) lol.
Just one more day everyone and the week is over. I hope everyone has a great extra long weekend. I guess I better go to bed now. Peace and God Bless!
P.S. "They don't need no pizza, they got food there." (Hitch)

Another Rookie

Hey everybody, I want to give a shout out to all of you. Another rookie has been influenced by the "nation of blogs." Andy got my name out there and helped me out. So I am going to try and help another rookie out. The new guy is Brian Ambergey. If you want, check out his new blog at bamburgey.blogspot.com.

The Spanish play went great. The kids loved the lightsaber fight scene. I think it was the best. I had so much fun being dead. I died twice in the play. Not that many people can do that. It was a great time acting with a bunch of my friends. I hope everyone has a great sabbath day. Peace and God bless!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone. Happy resurrection. He is risen!!!!!! Today is truly a joyful day. We have great reasons to celebrate. I hope everybody had a great day today. This past weekend has been a great time to think about the greatest sacrifice that occurred. It doesn't just end there, Christ is alive!!!

These thunderstorms the past couple of nights have been interesting. Andy was over at my house when the tornado sirens went off. Tonight could be another round. Well, another week comes. Just think everybody, 5 weeks until fnals(not fun) but after that; no school! Today, I recalled that we have the Spanish play this week. I hope everyone has a good week. Remember, Jesus Christ has conquered sin and death. Peace and God bless!

What happened in Detroit?

What's up everybody. My trip to Detroit was amazing. I got to meet some new people in Max Walling's youth group. On the way we listened to different styles of music. It was fun. The Acquire the Fire-Battlecry was great. There were about 30-35 thousand kids there. On Friday night, thousands of people came forward. There was no doubt the Holy Spirit was moving. The worship and other concerts were awsome. The point of this whole event was definitely summed up into one word: Battle/war. The point was to get us pumped up and go and make a difference and change our generation. There is a battle going on. A war we cannot see. Of course, I am speaking of a spiritual battle. Then you have a cultural battle. Some parts in our culture need to be affected. We Christians need to be ready for the battle. The bands were great. I liked Tobymac the best. Oh yeah, J-jewel, get the Tobymac cd, it is sweet.
Then on the way back, one of Max's friends in the youth group, locked himself out of his car. So we got out of our hotel really late then we had wanted. We waited for the police to show up and he got it open. I didn't get shot or threatened like some of you thougth would happen. lol. I definitely enjoyed myself last weekend in big DE-troit. Now I am back to school and home. I hope I put what I learned into practice. Peace and God bless!

Devotional Blog #1

I was thinking yesterday what I could do with my blog. I had an idea, that once in a while I would talk about what I am learning in my "quiet times." Maybe someone could be encouraged. So here it is. My first Devotional blog.

I am doing a study on I and II Thessolonians. It is from a Lifeguide Bible Study book. The, I guess you could say topic, would be assurance. It covers a variety of instances. For example, assurance of our faith, assurance that God is really there when we are in trails, or am I really pleasing the Lord in my life? These are just some that can be brought up in this study I am doing. Today, I read I Thessolonians 2:17-3:13. The chapter title was called "Unmistakable Love." At this time, their is a lot of persecussion in the church. This got in the way of Paul visiting the church in Thessolonia. He really wanted to visit the church to help them and encourage them. He ended up sending Timothy because he couldn't make the trip. He really loved the Thessalonian church (see I Thess. 2:17-20, 3:2, 5, 10). As you read through the first 3 chapters you will see how great Paul's love for the Thess. church is. In verse 9 of chapter 3, the good news of the Thessolonia church, Paul said that now he could really "live." That is deep concern. The good news came from Timothy who went to check to see if the faith of the Thess. church was still strong (v.5). In chapter 1, it tells of how much your faith can be seen and how it can affect others. The point I am trying to make is that Paul had tremendous love for that church(people). My prayer for us is that of what Paul said in I Thess. 3:12-13. That says, "May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you. May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones."

If we Christians, the body of Christ, can learn to love one another with "unmistakable love", I think we could see growth in each other. I read on a web page of a gospel singer who is being pushed away from the faith. He is being pushed away by other Christians. He is a believer. He said that he is being torn to pieces by what Christians are saying agaisnt him. He said that he has seen Christians fight and bicker about things more than anyone. So these "church people" are now influencing this guy to uncontentment and uncertaintenty. He said that Christians should be showing the love of Christ. But he definitely doesn't see it.
