When Sinners Say "I Do" Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

The gospel is something we need in every area of our lives.  In marriage and in singleness.  In joy and in sorrow.  In good times and in hard times.  When life feels good and when life feels confusing.  This book showed so much of my need for Jesus and His grace. It calls us to look at our own sins and not be so easy to point out the sins of those around us.   It shows the great gravity of our sins.  We can all tend to point fingers and defend or blame our sins on others or life circumstances.  I think especially today it is so easy to do this and not truly see our sins.  "It is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God." -Jerry Bridges "There can be no small sins against a great God." -J.I. Packer Dave Harvey mentions in the book that with true sorrow of our "little sins", our awareness of God and His mercy grow. Be quick to see our own

Spring Semester 2018

Well break has been nice and I'm just not ready to start school back up again.  I have that desire to get back into blogging, but have a feeling that just like last year I'll get too busy and it will be pushed to the side.  But we shall see...

I got my school stuff today and am officially ready for the spring semester to start...and be over.  Well, I still have to log in and set up my courses online and hopefully that will be easy, it's always given me problems in my last classes.  I'm taking two classes this semester so that should be interesting and difficult, but I'm excited about the classes and they should both be easier, because they are computer classes, rather then a math class.  One starts Monday and the other starts in the next two-three weeks.

It's crazy how fast things change.  Our Thursday night Bible hang-out for college group has taken a drastic change and though all in God's plan and all good, it's been another thing that's been hard and way out of my comfort zone.  Its turned from a hang-out to a bible study now.  New people.  And just not the thing I'm completely excited about each week.  But I do walk away each time seeing my sin and areas where I've fallen short, where I need the Lords help, and in all I'm growing and pushing myself.

I've been working on being content in where I'm at in life.  I've compared myself to others so much, I've put my hope in things of this world instead of the Lord and I find myself upset striving for things that won't satisfy.  How do I find joy in where I'm at?  Most of the time I don't know.  But I've found that removing things like Instagram and talking to people (especially older and more mature) can really help me see what is true and what is a false wall put up.  Praying for others instead of for myself also helps to see that I am so truly blessed in what the Lord has given or not given me.

Sometimes all I need to do is take a deep breath... look at today and what needs to be done, and tomorrow, Lord willing, will come with it's own problems to solve.  The Lord is always good.
