Chapel was powerful today. Between “How He Loves” to Dr. Jeroncic’s message related to Acts 18, I was really blessed. I wish I had more to write, more profound things to say, but for now, I suppose I just wanted to say that. I may or may not elaborate later; We’ll see. I asked God for a blessing in chapel and I was most definitely given more than an abundant portion. I am...

vimb0: you fight with life, with every ounce of energy you have. you come up kicking and screaming, and yet, you still feel like the looser. - i once heard a sermon, and the guy said something like: “it’s me versus me, and you’d think in that fight - i’d win. yet i always loose. over and over again.” - worse than being super sad or depressed, is succumbing to apathy. i’m fighting...

FYI: Chris Kim knows how to keep in touch and is just all-around pretty awesome. Then again, this shouldn’t be news to anyone.

Question/Answer With The Gungors
Gungor had their Live USTREAM chat. You could go on and ask them questions in the chat and they would answer the questions in a live video broadcast. I had been doing homework/studying, but the second I heard about this I had to go check it out. They answered three of mine :) : Michael’s favorite Bible verse is Romans 8 (the whole chapter), He plays a Harvest guitar, and...
Knowing and Doing
Today I read chapter four of Desire of Ages and Psalms 6-13. (I ended up re-reading some of the Psalms I’d read yesterday because I realized I hadn’t really absorbed them much.) Mrs. White begins the chapter with these reflections: He shunned all outward display… Jesus purposed that no attraction of an earthly nature should call men to His side. Only the beauty of heavenly...

What Do I Want?
This morning I read Psalms 6-8 and II Kings 4:8-37. The last few days have been rough. I haven’t posted a devotion on here since Thursday because I was in Portland, Oregon for Foundations and chose not to use the internet for the duration of the seminar. However, even if I had used the internet, I don’t know how great the posts would have been. I read Psalms because David gets it...
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances. That’s it. That’s all. That’s enough.
