Ah... it's getting cooler outside and right now we're in uptsy-downsie temps. So that means more time with magazines, indoor sports, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, reading books, writing, homework, football, and Bible reading. (and of course, music!)
You could also use some blogging in this time of year, too. The school year is my usual blogging time so I'm more busy then. So now's the time to sit back, grab your Bible, and walk on to the computer. Blogging is a time to let it all flow.
Last night I competed in a few volleyball games from 6-8 and although my team lost a LOT, I did REALLY GOOD! When I played center, I spiked a ball over the net once and our team got a point, then I passed a ball three times but got the team one point, and my serve got the team one point too.
So the team did... not so good, but I did great. So far we've lost every game, but it's only three games. There's still hope!
In church, what do you think it is?
Is it a time to complain about why your parents forced you to go? Is it a time to talk to your friends? Is it a time to doodle on the church bulletin?
If you answered any of the above, you haven't spent enough time praying, reading, and listening. Or maybe you choose not to. However, the thing about church is that you can praise God with all your heart and soul and mind and strength.
In a loud voice they sang: "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!"
This reminds me of the Tenth Avenue North song "Hallelujah". Why? Because the chorus is:
"Hallelujah for the blood of the lamb that was slain. Hallelujah for the blood of the lamb that was slain. And so we, enter in to see your face, ya, enter in to see your face O God!"
So church is... a time to praise God for all He has done in our lives! A way you can praise God is by A) writing a list and B) Writing a journal
First, write a list of what you want to happen and what is yet to come.
-Become the 2011 princess for the county
-Go to DRSS next year
-Make Varsity Volleyball team
-Go to 2011 National Fine Arts
Or, you can write a journal of what God's doing and how it's possible.
"And if our God is for us, then what could ever stop us? And if our God is with us, then what could stand against?"
