I haven't blogged in to long. I do believe I am getting rather lazy. So an update-Live is pretty much the same with the friends, I do believe its getting a little bit better, but not to much. But with all friendships I think I'm going to run into this, the roller coaster of friendships. I started thinking about it the other day, and I realized that however this comes out, I've learned lots from it. I think God's still got a plan for all of this; I'll see it eventually.
So last Sunday was my birthday :) (the 21st) It was GREAT! my friend Katie got to come over the whole weekend! Which was AWESOME! We got to take lots of pictures! (I still have to get those to you, sorry) It was a great weekend. Remember that post a while ago about my brother? Well, he's even more amazing now. He got me a GUITAR for my birthday!! not just some little rip off electric, and spankin' brand new Les Paul. Not that he wasn't amazing before, it's just cool that he did that :) My guitars name is "Fishing Pole" but for short, Fish or Fishy. (long story)
Next Day: Monday. I had a pretty bad Monday, not going to lie. School just wasn't great and my friends and I really weren't getting along, and storms forgot to actually tell me happy bday on my bday. He got it the night before, and the morning after. Ha, oh well, I'll cut him some slack. But after I got home from school, one of the band members from Waketheday had just talked to me and simply said "Jesus loves you, I hope you had a good day : )" and then we started talking....for three and a half hours. Here's a little something to think about:
What is faith?
How do we believe?
What is hope?
How do we have faith?
What is grace?
Are mercy and grace the same thing?
How do we have assurance of our faith?
Yeah, I know, lots there. Here is a great verse that kinda helps. Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen."
so that's about it. Needless to say, my Monday went better after that.
I've been journaling (in real life) for a year now, I feel cool.
