chickety check this out

Okay, so early afternoon I get to studying the Bible, and well I made some really cool connections. I am just going to write exactly what I put into my journal. Beware, because this is kind of lengthy.These are the exact words, precisely as they appear in my Journal, hope it is not confusing for anyone. HE HE, but too bad if it is!

I pissed and moaned a bit today. I had some extra time...hummmm...what will I do with it? First I took care of some E-Mails that "needed to be written"....bah, done....maybe a little T.V.....ughrrr, Alas my stupidity left me and I got in the word. God showed me an interesting correlation between (1 Thessalonians 5:16-19) & (Hebrews 12:7) In verse 19 of 1 thess it says "Do not put out the Spirits fire."And so then this little line stuck out to me from my devotional. "Sanctification (1 thess 5:23) is not my idea of what I want God to do for me, sanctification is God's idea of what He wants to do for me." ~BIG SIGH~ I have got to get off this idea that Mikey knows best. He doesn't....I doesn't!! The more I realize and accept this, the better off I will be. The correlation was made to (Hebrews 12:7) "Endure hardship" So I came up with .....As God work's in my life, I must not be so quick to dismiss unfavorable happenings as, "not from God." I must allow God to work in me how ever he chooses to. (1 thess 5:16&18) says be joyful ALWAYS, and to give thanks in ALL CIRCUMSTANCES. This is so good for my soul to hear, now, how exactly do I stay happy in crap situations? Well, I know how Not to stay happy in crap situations, it's simple. I use to grab a bottle, pills, girls, money, etc. That never worked. So, maybe the whole idea here is to ignore what the FLESH wants, and fix my eyes on Christ. When I look back on my life, I know that during the times I fell hard, I was listening to my flesh and so the crap situations consumed me. If I listen to Christ, the crap situations will still be there to build and strengthen me, but I can get through them, not only just, "get through them." But do so giving thanks all along.

These are my words.

So, not even an hour and a half after I wrote this and had this awesome enlightenment, I walked into the garage for one reason or another and saw my moms back tire on her car. Holy diver, it was low. So I told her she needed air in it right away, like before she tried to drive it again. She told me she didn't know how to do that, and that she wanted me to go do it right quick. I said no problem, but I had to hurry because I had to get to work. Well, I hop into her Camry and head off to the gas station. En Route I came up to a work truck parked on the side of the road, with his right wheels a little bit on the grass. I drew this picture to help explain it. I was driving forward in the neighborhood about to make a left, I was maybe going a little faster than I should have been, maybe going 30 instead of 25, i'm not exactly sure. But I did see the red car (car inbetween me and the work truck) coming, but instead of coming to a quick stop, I just decided to put my right wheels a little bit up on the grass a little bit and just let the guy in the little red car squeeze by. I shouldn't have done that, and the guy yelled at the top of his lungs "YOU BASTARD!!" I felt horrible, and wanted to go apologize, but I was in a hurry, so I didn't even bother to yell out the window, "I'M SORRY, I SHOULDN'T HAVE DONE THAT!!"

Well, then since last week my friend Wes paid for my movie ticket, I said the next one was on me.....I didn't know it would be so soon (BECAUSE I'M BROKE), but I am a man of my word, so we went to go see Tropic Thunder with some friends and his girl friend Jackie.I labeled the names, but they don't show up good in this picture. I edited the pic. a bit, but I really like the way it looks for some reason. blurry is the new FOCUS....err something liket that. The movie was crap, BUT Jack Black was, of course, without a doubt, halarious!!! Okay, that was my day in a nut shell, good night, and God Bless!!
