I’m not an American, but from what I have seen in the media, Dr. Ron Paul is who I would vote for. Now this is a man of integrity.
The second week of boot camp has already begun, last week almost everyone memorised at least one verse for the week, many memorising almost all 7 verses. Consuming the word of God (eating) is very important, however prayer (breathing) is equally important in our spiritual lives. This week the challenges are:
Why do we get distracted with things? At times I can get in the zone and be working away for hours and even forget to eat. Other times I could be working one minute and the next minute we find that we have just spent the last hour browsing Facebook profiles. I believe this happens when our mind is not focused and we start to think about other things. The Bible (written about 2000 years ago) had already warned us about this:
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. – James 1:8
The best thing we can do is focus on one plan and don’t let other things get in your way. I am not saying this because I’m perfect, after all I’m still a work in progress. I found this to be a good reminder and so I hope it helps you too.
So did you just get distracted? Well at least now you know what to do 😉
“in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” – 1 Th 5:18
Sometimes we think life is too hard and we don’t realise the fact that there is so much we should be thankful for. However remember to always give thanks, even when it seems like the whole world is against you.
On Monday (29th October) I turned 24. That number may not be very much for some people, but at least for me it is huge. It seemed not too long ago that I was still in high school. I guess we can’t stay being a teenager forever, as much as some would want to. There are seasons in life, which is why we need to take each season for all its worth and don’t take anything for granted. When we were young we wished we could be older sooner, longing for the freedom. Now that we are older, we look back at how wonderful it was to be young, having little (or no) responsibilities. Make the most of each season (school, uni, work, married life, etc.), that is part of living life to its fullest.
Here are some things God has blessed me with this year:
