At work…

I seem to have tons of time to kill. So I spent some of it talking to sianie and dave, and some of it reading philippians, and some of it interpreting my dreams, and some of it freaking out about my car, and some of it here. Yeah. on my way to work today, my “check engine” light came on. im freaked out. i JUST told my dad yesterday that i had a feeling my car was going to break down.  God, I just pray you sustain me and my car. It just seems to be one thing after the other. one thing goes good? something else goes bad. something else goes good? another thing goes bad.

little thing called life. its great, isnt it?

actually, it is! And I am happy and greatful for every single day.

Yesterday my mom dad and me went out to millersville to visit aaron for his birthday. it was nice to see him. i miss my brother. 😦 😦

Anyways, Ive been reading Philippians… and listen to what Paul says to them:

“…fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.  Let each of you look out not only for his own interestes, but also for the interests of others.” -Philippians 2:2-4

in verses 13-15 he says

” for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.  Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world…”

Sounds easy, huh?

put others before yourself,

and dont complain.

A lot of times I try to put others before myself… but why? Is it really for the glory of God? or is it so that I feel better about myself as a person?  Ive messed up so much in the past & Im gonna mess up a lot in the future… but Gods grace is amazing.

and here is one of my absolute favorite verses that i probably already typed a week or so ago. I dont care.

“Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected, but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.  Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,  I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.  Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind.”  -Philippians 3:12-16

 

 

Amen.
