How dare you....

Writers block?  What the heck is that? 

I dunno.  I've never had it :)


How can I complain? What right have I to complain?  haha! Imagine!  If one of our rights as Americans were the right to complain..   How weird would that be? 

But seriously.

What right do we, mere created beings, have to complain against a perfect God?!??  When you complain, you are acting like the Israelites, who, despite God delivering them from slavery and being SOOOO insanely good to them, complained and sinned against God! 

*GASPETH!*  How dare they!

But!  YOU (yes you!) do the exact same thing!  God is showing you mercy and grace undeserved and you complain and spit in His perfect face!

Every time you complain out loud, or in your head, you are complaining to God, who keeps you and sustains you.  Who gave you life!  Who is perfectly Holy!   It ought to make you feel sick thinking back on how you treat Him.  This post right now is meant to make you feel sick and terrible and repentive.   I hope I'm succeeding....

We complain alot!  We are soo blessed!  And we complain anyways. 
I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel like I have a right to complain.  Because of my pain and how long I've had it.  I feel that I have a right to complain.  


I have no right whatsoever to complain!  I am sooo blessed!  Even though I may feel a little pain, its nothing compared to what Jesus suffered on the cross.   Let me say that again.  Whatever pain you feel, its nothing!!! compared to what Jesus suffered on the cross!!!  He was not only in physical pain, but He suffered the wrath of God!!  I can't even imagine.  I bet you can't either.  If you can....there is something wrong......

I have a verse though, for those of you who are suffering..

2 Corinthians 1:3-7
"3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 5 For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. 6 If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. 7 And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort."

I hope this helps.

Much Love,


Does your life bring glory to God?

I have so so much to say.  And so so little time to say it.

First off....  Does anyone even read this?  probably not... I don't blame you!  This is a rather boring and weird blog.  If you are reading this.... your loss.  I'm thinking this is gonna be rather long and....not well put together! :)

Secondly...I saw Alice in Wonderland again!   It was hard for me to catch the moral because I forget to look for it.  I don't have much insight in that area... It seemed to be..(and I could be totally off) Don't shy away from duty and don't conform to be who people think you should be.   I'm not sure.  But thinking on it, that might be what they're trying to say.   I don't know...

Okay!  Now on to what I really want to talk about!

You ready for this??

Wait for it..

Wait for it...

Wait for ittttttttt!

Ungodliness!  Yeah!  You read that right!  Ungodliness!

What the heck kind of topic is that??   Ohhh... just one that I read about today.  In bible study.   Made me want to cry... I underlined a lot of parts in the book "Respectable Sins" that I wanted to share.

Here is what Jerry Bridges says about ungodliness - "Ungodliness may be defined as living one's everyday life with little or no thought of God, or of God's will, or of God's glory, or of one's dependence on God"

Woah!  Ungodliness doesn't just mean you aren't like God.  It means that you ignore God and all He does for you!    This should shock you.  It shocked me.  But wait! There's more;

"Now, the sad fact is that many of us who are believers tend to live our daily lives with little or no thought of God. We may read our Bibles and pray for a few minutes at the beginning of each day, but then we go out into the day's activities and basically live as though God doesn't exist. We seldom think of our dependence on God or our responsibility to Him. We might go for hours with no thought of God at all. In that sense, we are hardly different from our nice, decent, but unbelieving neighbor. God is not at all in his thoughts and is seldom in ours." (Emphases added)

Now, throughout my whole post there is something you must never forget.  That's the gospel.  Jesus went on that cross, suffered God's holy, just and awesome wrath for these very sins I'm talking about.  And nothing can separate us from the love of Christ!!

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: 'For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.' No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angles nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor ANY powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in ALL creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:35-39
(Emphases added)

Okay, back to what Jerry Bridges had to say about this;
"We seldom think of our accountability to God and our responsibility to live according to His moral will as revealed to us in Scripture.  It's not that we are living obviously sinful lives; it's just that we seldom think about the will of God and, for the most part, are content to avoid obvious sins."

Later on, he is talking about 1 Corinthians 10:31, which says; "So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God."
"The 'all' of that sentence includes every activity of our days. We are not only to eat to the glory of God, we are to drive to the glory of God, we are to shop to the glory of God, and we are to engage in our social relationships to the glory of God. Everything we do is to be done to the glory of God.  That is the mark of a godly person."

Wow, I am sooooo ungodly!  I totally don't do that!  Wish I did! 
Well, how do we do all these things to the glory of God?  One thing I think helps is thinking, "Is God being glorified by me doing this?" or "Does this bring glory to God?"
Here is something the writer of this book does that helps him; "So I pray prospectively over the day before me, asking that the Holy Spirit will so direct my thoughts, words, and actions that they will be pleasing to God."
Good advice right?  Now only if we could follow it!

Here is what he says is a mark of ungodliness; "A person may be moral and upright, or even busy in Christian service, yet have little or no desire to develop an intimate relationship with God....The question we should honestly and humbly ask is, How ungodly am I? How much of my life do I live without any regard for God? How much of my daily activities do I go through without any reference to God?"

Good questions!  Think about that for a minute.  Re-read it if you have to.  The answer is probably a lot.  I know mine was. 
I have just a couple more things I want to quote from him, so bear with me!

"Sins of the tongue, such as gossip, sarcasm, and other unkind words to or about another person, cannot thrive in an awareness that God hears every word we speak."

In other words, if we are aware that God hears every word we speak, then we shouldn't be gossiping or saying unkind things to or about other people.

I just wanted to point out one more thing Jerry Bridges says; "I could not help but contrast our anemic desire for godliness with the attitude of young men in our city who recently camped out all night in the snow and cold at the entrance to a local electronics store. They wanted to be sure they would be able to buy one of a limited supply of a new video game system. One young man arrived at 9:30 Saturday morning to wait for the doors to open at 8 a.m. Sunday.  Would any of us have that kind of zeal for godliness?"

Now that's pretty insane.  We should have that kind of zeal for godliness!  But why don't we?  Probably because we don't think about it, and other things get in the way.  Not. Cool.

But, as I said earlier, Jesus died for these sins!  Our part is to grow in godliness and give glory to God with our every waking moment.

Thats all for now!

Thanks for reading this superlongsuperboring post :)

Much Love,


Wandering in Wonderland

I'm trying to collect my thoughts on this subject.  Where to start?  Maybe the book? 

I've read the books before.  Didn't like them at all.  It was just so weird.  It didn't make any sense.  It was too weird.  So, as a result, I kinda didn't want to see the movie.  When the previews came out, it looked kinda dark and weird and I didn't want to see it.  I didn't think I would ever see it.  But as time went by I started wanting to.  It looked really cool.  I had heard though that it wasn't that good.  It was good, but not...ya know, great.   Wasn't looking forward to seeing it in 3D.  I hate 3D.  It usually bothers me the whole time I'm watching the movie. It just doesn't do anything for me. 

But, Oh. Man.  What a movie! 

I love movies that are semi realistic, but isn't the same as our world.  Like City of Ember.  I don't know if any of you have read the book or seen the movie, but it's basically the same world we live in, but they are totally different.  So cool.   Not like sci-fi.  I don't really like sci-fi at all...

It just takes you into another land!  A wonderful land :)

I think this has to be Tim Burtons best movie ever.  All of the characters are awesome, the acting, the designs, the layout, the story, the visual effects!  All in all it was a well done movie!  And the 3D was Uh-may-zing!  You gotta see it in 3D if you're going to.

Now, I don't really know what the moral of the story is.  I will have to take a closer look at that when I see it again, and let you know what I thought of it. :)
There was a little too much fighting for my taste.  I don't like any fighting, but that's just me.  :)
It was a good movie.  Can't wait to see it again!

Thanks for reading!

Much love,


This is short..

Do you have certain people in your life who you spent alot of time with and then they were suddenly, without warning, taken away?   One day your hanging out, having fun, the next, they are just gone without a trace.   Its awful.  Do you ever randomly just think about them? And how different your life would be if they were still in it?  Then you are swept off your feet with this wave of sorrow and grief.  You miss them so much.  But there's nothing you can do.  I hate those moments when I think of them.  I want to cry out, "Why Lord?!"  But, I have to remind myself that He is in control. He totally knows what He is doing.  Isn't that comforting? I thought so.

Saddened, but with
Much Love,
