A strong tree

I read a devotion by spurgeon tonight that compared our daily trials to a tree being tossed about. As the tree grows it's roots grow deeper and get stronger able to withstand more. Our daily struggles are the wind and our roots are faith. As our faith grows stronger we become rooted deeper in Gods truth able to withstand higher winds. So when things get tough hunker down and remember how deep your roots run.
In Him

Beautiful Deception

Satan is beautiful, why else would sin be so tempting. We find ourselves dashing around life seeing so many beautiful things, but do we turn away from beautiful things, not usually. For instance, we took a group of teens to NYC for a mission’s trip, serving the homeless and less fortunate. First things first, a homeless woman walks by you, depending on the severity of her situation; she may have not had a bath for a while so she might smell a tad bit. At first thought were repulsed, it’s human nature, but Jesus would've sat her down and washed her feet with no second thought. Now if this were a beautiful woman, or a handsome man, clean, nice smelling, but still homeless, some of the people we helped were not homeless, just not making any money with their jobs. we would talk to someone like this with no second thought, we even might wash their feet, Oh washing feet in the bible times was a huge sign of humility, want to see why try it some time, go up to a stranger and ask to wash their feet. See how they look at you. I see Satan as beautiful, just as beautiful as Jesus,
2 Cor 11:14 says; And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Doesn't it make sense, how effective would Satan be if he smelled, or if he was not the most beautiful person? Next time something seems too good to be true, or smells so good the decision is easy, think twice because it could be a beautiful fallen angel holding flowers saying it’s OK to do this. Satan is the greatest deceiver, even the Antichrist will be loved by many people, and if people hated him he'd do nothing. So to everyone, have a good night and God bless you.

Letting Go Faithfully

OK so why the title, why not talk about faithfully letting go. ill start off with Abraham, in Genesis 22:1-19 God says sacrifice your son, i honestly think i couldn't do it, Abraham had more faith than me, and i feel really sadistic saying i wish i had the faith to sacrifice my son, but it is not meant literally, God used this as an example of what out faith should be, God will provide a way out of any situation, we just may not see it at the time, sometimes i choose the wrong thing because as humans were used to seeing a result when we make a choice, when following God on faith sometimes its like jumping down a dark hole that your friend said is 1000 feet deep, but when you finally jump your feet sink in 2 inches. Purely faith. Now about the letting go part, i was always told when God says do it, do it, no questions asked, can we do this all the time, no we have that human imperfection, Thank you God for forgiveness.
Letting go means purely that let go, Were looking at some life changes in our lives, i personally have collected alot of things that i think are great, lately i have seen that these material things are holding me back spiritually, I mean i cant get out from under the overwhelming sense of being buried by my attachment to worldly things. Not that an accumulation of things is a bad thing, but for me Ive have always done this, i collect things that i might someday use but never do. purely clutter. I think we clutter up our lives with so much baggage that is is hard to hear Gods voice telling us what to do. Physical clutter and mental clutter. Worry is a good clutter mentally, God tells us not to worry. Mk. 4:18,19 - "the seed among thorns...are the ones who have heard the word, and the worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches...enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful"
Ps. 38:18 - "I am full of anxiety because of my sin"
Ps. 37:1-7 - "Fret not in the in Him"
Hence letting go, trust God, let go of your baggage, have faith and take that jump, maybe its a new job, without mistakes we cant learn, sometimes we make mistakes even in Gods will, he's teaching us. There is nothing that happens that God does that doesn't have a reason for.
So Let Go Faithfully, Jump in, Stop worrying, Stand up to Satan, release his hold on your life, for in the absence of darkness there is only light.

I like information

I like to learn, but dont like to read, what can i do? When you find out will you let me know? I want to go back to school so bad, but finances and time limit me, as well as thinking that i cant do it. I learn alot from television shows, i found a new show called cities of the underworld on the history channel. It is easy for me to lose my focus on God with all this info coming at me from all angles. I love God but i love learning all this stuff. I get so disgusted sometimes with life, i see friends and some family that seem to have God's blessing written all over their life. Life is easy for them, sometimes i dont understand why they have it so easy, is their something im doing wrong? Or am i in goda will more than them. Satan does not want us to follow Gods will, am i being attacked extra hard because im where i need to be? Where is God leading us? I have no clue and im not really sure how to tell other than just trusting Gods direction from day today, i am a firm believer that all things happen for a reason, while some things may be sad, there is still a reason. I believe God can and does use all the people around you to direct you.

Editing my blog

Ok thanks to my wife i am almost obsessed with editing my blog, this whole thing has actually made me happy. i guess sometimes in life other things take over what we really like to do, God put us on this earth to enjoy our life, but also to live for him. i have thoroughly enjoyed working on this and i do believe i am going to continue to do this. This could be an avenue for someone to find out about God, or it could be a good thing for someone to read, if they can get past my random posting.
