Just a quick morning note. Check out my Faith Shaping site for new daily learning posts. I’m posting my toughts on my morning devotions. If I don’t get a post up on a day be sure to get after me. Valete!

(Exodus 11:1-10) Looking again at the story of Moses being used by God to bring the Isrealites out of Egypt, we can see that things didn’t go as the people, or Moses, had hoped. God, however, had a perfect plan in mind. I’ve talked about it before, but once again I am reminded, that in all things God has a plan for us. I really like both Proverbs 19:21 and also Proverbs 16:9, they both make it very clear that even though we may have something in mind, it’s ultimately God who is in control. It can be very hard to accept God’s control and plan for our lives, especially when we have to deal with tough stuff. It can be very easy for us…
It’s easy to be thankful when things are going good, even though I think we forget to be. It’s an even greater challenge to be thankful in the storms of life. If we would only take time to be be thankful, and to show appreciation for others, lifr would look very different I suspect. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. – 1 Thessalonians 5:18 NLT
So, Sunday I didn’t get a blog entry written. I was lazy. And now I’ve got a ton to write. Of course here we are again sitting at 11:45, just cant’t beat the night owl. Too bad the world doesn’t run at night. Boy if I had a job here that required me to work night with people in China that would be perfect. I guess I wouldn’t have much of a life here but I sure like the hours. Ok, so Sunday began the study group on Life Shapes. We’re taking this from the book “A Passionate Life”. We’re not going to be reading the book together. The aim of the group is to talk about the Life Shapes and how to actually put…
“Don’t run ahead of God in your own strength, but rather trust Him to show you the solution.” I think this is one area that, as Christ followers, we all struggle with at times. I know that daily I need to give up control and let God lead. Then the LORD said to Joshua, “See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men.” JOSHUA 6:2 NIV
“Planning is necessary and will help you, but there comes a time in everything when you have to step out and get in the race. God is waiting for you at the starting line.” The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge by Tony Dungy, Nathan Whitaker
Well, I have a feeling if I just let things start to fly this post might get rather lengthy. Hmm, hold on to your hat. 🙂 So today was sort of a struggle for me. The part of my job that I like the least is having to sit at a computer and correct people’s addresses, or add them to a mailing list, yuck. I’m finding I’ve become bored with the whole thought of doing data entry. The things I always like about computers and technology in general are making them do cool new things. Also not just do cool things, but things that can help people better accomplish their work. Well, I’m at a loss to know any better, or cool, way to get…
