Take a Chance

I still get lost in my own worlds in my brain, but for the most part they are highly amusing. I am learning this week that what I do and how I feel is not necessarily who I am. That's right the grouchy irritable side of me is simply the me who does not listen to the still quiet voice in my heart. For instance, I hear a voice say stay home, but I think no I will go out and spend time with my friend who has had a hard day. This may sound silly but going out was the wrong choice. Somedays I need to let God be God and do what he does. I am taking these classes that make me reflect on who I am, what I do and why I do it. It's hard, but good. See my friend needs to learn to be still and know that He is God. One prayer, one word of encouragement. I am learning to be obDIEnt without sacrificing myself on the altar of good, but useless deeds. That's it for now tomorrow is bed making and bedbaths; yep someone else gets to wash me. weird! oh well; what goes around comes around!

HEy Sherry...sorry that my blog is so out of date. The computers at school won't let me post...I can type a thing up and then it'll just say page cannot be displayed when I try to publish it. And it erases the whole thing. It's pretty retarded...BUT...the missions trip was dang aamazing. I'm gonna come over soon and tell you about it. I can't come this week because I've got a ton of stuff to do for Youth Advance this coming weekend. I'll try to come out next week. Love you tons Sherry...take care!

That little voice is very wise. Learn to hear it now before your life gets even more crazy. Listen I tell you, listen

one who has not listened and been burned more than once...listen

Everytime I come here and see the title to your post I always get this in my head, I think it might be for you! :)

If you’re all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain’t no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
(take a chance take a chance take a take a chance chance)

If you change your mind
I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
take a chance on me

-Love, your heavenly Father (and Abba)

I was reading Redeeming Love the other day and I thought of you. I read this book when I was sick in bed with pnemonia and you nursed me for three days back in my freshman year at bethany. I just wanted to say thanks again:)
