"Only fear the Lord and serve Him faithfully with all your heart. For consider what great things He has done for you."
How true are the words from Samuel. Might I serve God more faithfully with ALL my heart. I can see what great blessings He has done for me.
I am sorry for my inconsistencies.
I am sorry for how I have fallen so short of what my Lord has required of me.
I am sorry for the sour attitudes I have built up.
I am sorry for when I haven’t been the source of help that you have needed from me.
I am sorry for the lack of love, compassion, and patience that I need to posses.
I am sorry for not obeying my God in every aspect of my life.
I am sorry for the heavy weight or burden that I can be with my actions or words.
I am sorry for the person I have allowed myself to be.
I ask for all of your prayers and thoughts, as I have missed the mark of what God requires of all of His children. I ask for you help as I try to learn from this, with my head lifted high, looking to and directing my life after the example of Jesus Christ. As your brother , I need my family to help me to stand back up and fight the good fight.
Let’s all make for sure that we are being who we need to be.
With brotherly love,
I have finally transferred to my four year University. I have decided to major in Accounting and hopefully get my CPA. Things are definitely different going to a new and bigger school. It is requiring of me to step outside of my shell. :)
Lately, I noticed some growth spiritually in my life that is needed. As we all should do sometimes, I have been doing a personal check and can see where I am falling short. One thing in particular is that although I am doing things for others, setting a good example, or taking a lead role with some of the young people, I earnestly need to make sure that I am doing it with a pure heart. One of my biggest fears is doing something out of jealousy or to get attention, thus it not bearing true fruit. I hope to serve and obey God with humility, counting others more significant than myself. I strive to be the soil that is receptive to the Word and grows bountifully (Mark 4:1-20).
May we all serve God in a way that is pleasing to Him.
I think the cold and snow from the north followed me to Texas. We ended up getting about a foot of snow, which is unheard of for there. I wonder if all of this is caused by the global warming? :)
I had a great time with the family and some friends. We hung out, ate a lot, hunted some beasts, and watched a lot of football.
Hope you all had a great Holiday too! :)
I made it into Texas Friday afternoon around 4 in the afternoon. I did drive straight through, but stoped several times, even sleeping for over an hour or so.
And to answer the warmer weather question: it is definitely warmer, so far. Today was near 70 and the next two days are to be the same. Nice, almost spring weather. :) I am not trying to rub it in. ;)
More reports later.
