How To Kill a Friendship in 4 Easy steps! Philipians 2:1-5
God totally used yesterday's message on me this morning! I woke up for work & heard the car pulling out of the driveway. Mom had left a note saying she went to the gym. I started that whole thing in my head where I'm like "Man, I've only had this job for a YEAR! Why can't she remember that I have to go to work on Saturday!" Then this devotional popped into my head and I just started cracking up! Then I thought, "Wow, this is totally a test from God!" So I told myself, "Hey, she's got enough on her mind to easily forget that I have this job only one day a week. It's all good!" :p But then I was getting my stuff together and realized that my copy of The Shack was in the car which she took. My inner voice started up again, but I stopped myself quickly! And I'm happy to say that I woke dad up & he flew outta bed & we were out the door in five minutes! :pSo here I am at work for the next 6 hours with my Bible in hand, but no book to read and no Crowns Camp Day 6 yet *gasp!*Oh but speaking of jobs, I had a ROUGH night last night. I just broke down about not having a job yet (this Saturday job is all I have right now). I started getting mad at God & asking him why I hadn't gotten a job yet. I told Him I know He has something AMAZING in store for me, but I just need something to hold me over until that something amazing comes along. I was totally being selfish saying that I'm too old to be living at home. I should be living on my own, working at a great job, etc. All my friends are married & having babies...did I not deserve that? It wasn't pretty. So all of a sudden I feel Him telling me to read Job (go figure :p) So I did. I pulled out my Bible & just started reading Job from the beginning and read through Chapter 9. Wow! It really opened my eyes & I ended up talking to God for the next 20 minutes just apologizing and thanking Him for everything I DO have in my life. I can't wait to dig into Job & read more!
Mark,I slipped last night and watched half a movie. And when I was in my brothers truck last night he was listening to secular music. It is hard to avoid the secular world for just one week.~Jonathan
hey... i love the songs you all made. and since i see your blogs. i dont see captions. i m deaf and i would love to have all of your blog captioned if possible. thanks
Only someone who has been there could understand where alot of us can go-- Mark God is doing good works through you.
Wow...My Youth group isn't doing this camp 'til next week, but I'm getting a hold of the videos ahead of time... This one is hilarious and, like everyone else, I'm guilty of all of those things you mentioned...(Especially those night conversations with myself... XD)But, from the way the end of the video is worded, it sounds like there are more videos coming for this camp... Am I wrong?
This had me rolling on the floor! Loved it! And I, too, am guilty of them all!I just realized that tomorrow is going to be a MAJOR test for me! I've given up Twitter this week and I've done just fine so far, but on Saturdays I work 6hrs in an office alone where I see maybe 3 customers in a day, so I pretty much depend on Twitter convos to pass the time. Will be interesting for sure! I do have to read The Shack Ch 7 for church...think I can drag it on for 6hrs? :p
Mark, this was worth the wait! I was laughing so hard. Yes, I've done every single one of these steps. (I think that I've made enough "t-shirts" to stock a closet). Thanks for going deep. I'll be in the word tonight.
Timely for me...and encouragement much needed--thanks.
cool devo... and yes, i passed for all this steps to, i guess we all had done this things. But what we really should sometimes or the most part of the times, it just to hard for ourselves to do, and sometimes we prefer to let this situations pass by, so maybe we don't have to hurt our ego... but this are not what Jesus want from us.Thanks Mark...
