"The purity that God asks in your and my life, is not a purity the see's how close you can get to some imaginary line, it is a purity that has you running as fast as you can in the opposite direction." Joshua Harris

God’s Creation

By Adam

This year is just flying by, but it also seems to creep along too. Well anyway I have been noticing in more detail the wonders of Gods Awesome Creation. Like the clouds, and how every sunrise and sunset that no one is the same. I’ll go ride out on my bike and lie in the grass, look up at the sky and all the colors the blue, white, red, pink, purple, gray, orange, yellow and there are hundreds of different shades of each color.

I like to go fishing and I know a lot of different types of fish, reptiles, amphibians, birds and mammals that live in the Bayou’s where I fish, but there are hundreds of different types of fresh water fish. Let’s say you go to one of my favorite fishing holes, I know where the fish like to hide, where the shallow parts are and where it’s deep, Buts that’s just

Fishin’ . When you look closer, like on the bank of the water you see green slim (algae they call it), plants flouting in the water, a spider is on the plant and a snake sliding over the water as if it was on ice, but when he sees you he disappears below the surface. A fish jumps out of the water and slaps his tail on the water as if to say ha ha you can’t catch me, a dragon fly lands on a rock, a turtle pop up and sees you and disappears, a small fish jumps out of the water and lands on a lily pad, after a few seconds he flips back into the water and is gone. A great blue heron lands on a rock and his head goes down like lightning and comes up with a crawfish, then fly’s away. A grasshopper jumps and misses his target and lands in the water and Wham!! A large mouth bass swims up under the grasshopper and swallows him as he fly’s up out of the water then lands back in with a splash.

Let’s get a fish’s eye view so to say; you see a muddy floor, you look at your world as if looking through aqua colored glasses. Some perch dart back into the rocks, under the lily pads the roots hang down, dragon fly larva cling to their roots. Crawfish patrol looking for food while keeping an eye out for large fish, for they would make lunch of him. A mussel works his way into the mud to hide as a flat head catfish heads his way; A crawfish drops in from the bank and swims toward the catfish as if he does not see him headed his way, the catfish starts to swim faster zeroing in on the crawfish, faster and faster the fish swims Wham!! Lunch!! Then all of the sudden, the catfish is jerked back, the fish fights, but to no avail he is pulled out of the water by me with a Abu Garcia Revo S. Ok back to the point, I got carried away there. You can see some of the complexity on all the things God has made in this little story. And I think to my self how can someone think this world was made by some Big Bang when I look around and think there has to be a maker everything point’s to it.

Is Your Light Shining?

Last week at church I was in one of the class's when
heard the kids in another room singing "This Little Light of Mine".
Later that day I was think of the meaning of the
words to that song (we are lights in a world of darkness
does our light shine all the time or do we hide it under a basket
most of the time. I'm ashamed to say that most of the time
I’m like a turtle I just hide my head , I don’t light my
candle and let it shine where ever I go, the Lord has been showing
me this through my non-Christian "friends" I’m starting
to see how evil we are without Jesus in our life.

Rom 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.

Rom 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore,
brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your
bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God,
which is your spiritual service. 2 And be not
fashioned according to this world: but be ye transformed
by the renewing of your mind, and ye may prove
what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

I don’t think that He likes our ability to withstand temptations
but our ability to flee to run the other way from temptations.
When I "withstanding" temptation I’m not doing it through Gods help
I’m boasting in my own strength and in the end I fail and fall by
the wayside. But when I run from temptations the Lord is giving me
the wisdom, and strength to flee from temptations for He knows what
I can handle and what I can not handle. He sought
Us before the world was made.
Hard times come and we cling to Him more tightly, as
Christians where not perfect but where forgiven by the
blood of the lamb... "Not one of us can stand completely
pure before God. We are all sinners. But no matter how
filthy the rags of our past may be, in a moment
of true surrender the heart turned toward God loses its
Impurity. God clothes us in Christ's righteousness. He no
longer sees our sins. He transfers Jesus' purity to us. So
see yourself as God sees you---clothed in radiant white,
pure, justified. Don't let the past beat you up. Forget it.
If you've repented of all your sins. God has
promised to remember them no more (Hebrews 8:12)

Here is a story I found on one of my followers blogs.

Light In a Dark World

Darkness. Black nothingness. And a whole lot of it. I looked all around. I couldn't see a single thing. It was strange. Almost like I wasn't there or something. But yet I was. How or where I couldn't tell you. It almost seemed like I was just watching everything take place. I don't really know. Then suddenly I could see a bit. It was still just as dark as before, but I could see through the darkness somehow. I could see movement. Slowly I was seeing clearer and clearer. There, right there. I could see something. It looked like a person. Yeah, there was people all over. I looked around and saw that I could see everything. Like literally everything. I mean the whole world. And it was was pitch dark. Yet people were still living their lives like normal. They acted like it wasn't even dark. I was pondering on this, when I happened to see a man walking around with a candle. The strange thing is, it wasn't lit! I couldn't believe it! He was living his life normally. The only thing weird I noticed about him was that occasionally someone would point to his candle and say something to him. He didn't seem to have time for it. Before I could think about that very much, I saw another man holding a candle. It was lit. The light flickered in the darkness, brightly. Everywhere he went he was noticed. I looked closer. I could see people make their way towards the light. They hesitated and shrank back into the darkness as soon as the light from the candle fell on them. The man began to hand out candles to everyone he met. Most looked at it warily. Many, many people threw it down and ran away. They seemed to think "Why do I need this! I was just fine before!" and turned their back on the light, walking back into the darkness. The man then told the people that there was only one way to lite the candle, and then told them how. Some people began to get angry at the man, saying that he thought he was special for having the light. They could not see that they were stumbling around, as if blind all their life. Others of them were afraid. And then I saw one man step directly into the candlelight's beam and stand there. He asked a question. He then knelt down, as if to pray, and remained in that position for some time. After awhile I saw him move and looked hard. I saw that the man who's candle was lit was standing over the other man. Suddenly I saw that there was two lights. The other man's candle had been lit. He stood up, and said something, then walked away, light shining forth. Not because of light from himself. But from the candle. He had realized that he was blind without it, and needed it to see. I began to look around closely, and saw that here and there around the world; there were candles lit, and sometimes groups of then. I saw that many, many people held candles in their hands. Very few of them were lit. Then, I couldn't see anymore. It was just black. But I knew. I began to think hard about what I had seen. Suddenly I felt my mind whirling about me, spinning out of control. The image before me began to transform. White. White brightness. And a whole lot of it. Suddenly I realized I was looking at my ceiling. I looked around and saw I was in my room, and in my bed. I almost laughed. But the image of those people though, stumbling around in the dark was still there. And frankly, I hope it never goes away.

Well I thank the Lord for the trails He Has put me through
Last year and I pray that this year I may grow
Closer to my Lord and Savoir Jesus Christ…

I hope that this post will be a Encouragement
To yall’….
