Dont Forget

Isaiah 65:1-2
I was (ready to be) inquired of by those who asked not; I was (ready to be) found by those who sought Me not. I said, Here I am, (says I AM) to a nation (Israel) that has not called on My name. I have spread out My hands all the day long to a rebellious people, who walk in a way that is not good, after their own thoughts-

God is so desperate to inquire us! He has secrets he wants to reveal, people to heal, miracles to perform, a dying generation to save. I had to repent for not letting God not be the focus of all my thoughts. I dont want us to settle in life with stupid things that has no meaning. What really matters in this life is making Jesus known. Not religion...but the raw real passion and love I have for God to spread in the hearts of the people that dont know him!

How do we do daily falling to our knees and offering up prayers of desperation for the lost. When we pray it takes our eyes off of ourselves. When we focus on God by reading the word confessing it day in and day out it breaks of the strongholds of life, self, doubt and opens up the doors to faith. Letting God be God and stop blocking what he wants to do in and through us.

If we dont fall to our knees and lift God above our needs think of the countless souls that will suffer. That puts it in perspective that some of the people that I meet will never know about God and how he loves them because I was too busy worrying about my life and how my needs are going to work out.

Ephesians 4:6-7
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

And the best part of all is when you pray all worry, doubt, confusion, stress goes away! That doesnt mean you dont face these things, but as you continually offer it back up to God he gives you peace to focus on what really matters! Him!

Idaho Adventure

The fact that I was taking a group of high school girls to run through the faces of McCain and Obama in a corn field finalized the thought that I was up for an adventure! Most of us have never even been to a corn maize so we had no idea what to we arrived there was a little bit of excitement next to a small looking gated obstacle course..My initial reaction was hmm is this some kind of red neck play area for children?... these people have some real issues, but then all of a sudden the cheering starts...having no idea whats going on we couldent resist but join in on the excitement and cheer our hearts out...then what do you know...the wistle was blown and the gates were lifted...three pigs jetted out of these cages...It was a real pig race...People actually have pig races?...I never thought I would experience something like that.Wow I really do live in Idaho...I'm so proud! So after getting motivated from the race us girls are pumped and ready for our Corn Maize adventure.
We started out really crazy as the excitement of running through the corn was starting to get to us! Um then the not so fun parts started happening...for one I for sure wore the wrong boots.... you would be surprised how strong those corn stalks really are! Thanks Becca for your support in that almost tragic time. Secondly as we were lost and confused I was we actually paid to come in here and get lost...for fun? Some things in life just doesn't make sense.
Mixed feelings swept our group as we were trying to decide which way to go...through some wrong turns...running in fright of the thought of the wild pigs running loose...we finally made it and sound...go team!!!

laugh quota!

So every night since I have moved in with my roomates (Keila and Meagan) I have noticed something very disturbing about my little self! Between the hours of 10:00pm-10:30pm I develop this insane amount of energy in my body that makes me feel literaly out of contol. Honestly I dont know what comes over me! I feel out of control like the biggest sugar high, caffeine overdose, or I heard it called my crack moment! I have never done drugs but I think I can relate to the experience! One of my very astounding roomates says "Seriously do you have a laugh quota that you have to get out every night"! It starts out slowly from a small thought in my head...a little giggle starts, but the more I think about it my laughter escalates and soon I am out of control laughting for sometimes sad to say hours long. I have more energy than I can handle which usually leads to some embarrasing stories that I never remember in the morning, but I dont want to get into that! Whats really distrubing is I thought this was a recent thing but talking to my parents supposedly I have done this since I was a little girl. Why I didnt know this about myself I have no idea? Honestly I dont remember the crazy things I do or say! So thank you roomies and all of you who have experienced the laugh quota of the night watches!!!
