Moving Day : (

I do not like moving, it seems to disrupt my life. I have already moved everything that is going to my new apartment, but i will probably be crashing at my old apartment for 2 more days. I am waiting for my landlord to do some final electrical wiring to hook up a new ceiling fan and put in the air conditioner. Now you know why i am staying at my old place for a couple more days. This is Florida after all. I still have cable at my old apartment and a little TV, plus i left my modem so i can hook up my laptop and be online.

Oh well, the Lord is in control, so everything will work out!

It is just a joke, or is it?

HOMELAND SECURITY
Just wanted to let you know the New Homeland Security Bill has passed.
Things will be different now and Internet surfing as you know it will be tracked
by what the FBI calls a "non-intrusive method." The FBI says you will not
notice anything different.

Important

I received this e-mail from my friend Doug, and i thought it was worth posting. I hope you agree.

Try to imagine yourself in this man's shoes, being verbally
assaulted with hatred and venom on a daily basis at his job.
Try to imagine if you did the very best you knew how to do, and
STILL, you were despised and hated without reason. How would
you feel? How would you be able to function on a daily basis
at your job? How would you feel every time you went out in
public, knowing that people despised you and there was nothing
you could do to change their minds?
This is awesome - please view!

Oh boy!

I apologize for not posting that often and then say i will change my ways and here i am again almost a week later. Truthfully i am in the midst of of moving this week, so i have to pack up and clean up my old apartment. I also have to clean up & set up my new apartment and tomorrow is my only day off before the move. Needless to say most of my nights will be long this week especially when i do not get home until 9:00 pm already. I have been residing on the Calvary House property, but it is time for me to go. With me leaving it gives one of their gradutes the opportunity to move in to my old apartment. I put the word out to some friends about needing to move about 2 months ago. About a month ago a friend told me that his former landlord had an apartment available, well i hestitated on telling him i wanted to look at it. So by the time he called for me someone had put a down payment on it seems the guy backed out and i found out and this time i went to look at it. The owner is letting me move in with no first, last, and security and it is alot closer to the office.

I just pray for the Lord's blessing and thank Him for what He has already done.

I also need to give the leadership at Calvary House their props.

Sorry!

For those of you who have been sending me words of encouragement about my blog, thanks. Also, i would like to apologize for not posting sooner and more often. I can not believe that it has been a week. I will try to change that starting now.

Well, i love the Lord and what He has done in my life so it is my pleasure to be His servant. When i got to the Center today i could see there were some who going through trials with a downcast spirit and some were going through trials with peace & joy. Let's face it, we all go through trials, but how are you going to handle them? Is the Lord in control of your life or do you still think you are in charge?

You see the ones who are downcast have many doubts, the ones with peace & joy know that the Lord is working something out!

Rom. 8:26 ¶ In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words;
Rom. 8:27 and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
Rom. 8:28 ¶ And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Fluff versus the real stuff

So many people expect or want to hear the feel good gospel. One that will make them healthy, wealthy, and (worldly ) wise. Why not just be content with His plan? The way it seems to be lately is there are more and more professing Christians looking for their wants to be met as opposed to their needs. If we are real Christians (followers, servants of Christ) then we are supposed to be conforming into His image, through the process of sanctification. We are not to expect Christ or His word to conform to us.

His plan for our lives is far better than ours!

Christmas?

Someone started talking about Christmas already. I have not even got to this weekend yet, so slow down. Let us not get to far ahead of ourselves. I believe in planning, but i am not getting that far ahead. If you can, Lord bless ya!

Just remember to let the Lord lead and guide us in all we do.
