It has begun

To most, this would appear to be nothing more than a water tower. Old, slightly rusting from the outside, and not appearing very special or unique at all. For me though, I see the start of something beautiful. I see God's hand at work, uniting two individuals who were willing to do things right. To cast aside doubts and to live by the Holy Spirit. I see a place of vulnerability and of trust from two individuals not looking for relationships, but being placed together; not by circumstance, or irony, but by FATE. Strong words? I'd say so.

This is where Janice and I had an opportunity to break through fears held by years of cover up. I am so into this girl. It's crazy. I've had crushes and fling's, but this surpasses the short lived nothingness i've had in the past. IT IS OFFICIAL, I am in a relationship, a long distance relationship with Janice Hernandez. A lovely lady who lives in L.A., California. What am I crazy? To that I say no, I am just on for the ride, and feel 100% that this is right. Janice is right. We both agree that we will listen and seek God first. Matthew 6:33 says, "Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and these things will be given to you as well." God placed Janice in my life for a big reason. A lot has already happened for both of us. It's no coincidence, and I am proud to ANNOUNCE TO THE WORLD, or at least to my BLOG readers that Janice and I are dating, and I couldn't be happier.

On a different note. Today I struggled with an ego and pride that would not let go. But, I did some things right. I realized what I was doing early. I was carrying around this attitude that kept looking down on others, and it derived this negativity that I found extremely unattractive. I was in serious prayer against it all through the day, but it kept coming back. When I got off work, I took a shower and headed right to my Bible. I looked in the Concordance under PRIDE and found these verses. They helped a lot, along with the surrounding words. Here is that list in case you are curious.
Proverbs 8:13
Proverbs 16:18
2 Corinthians 7:4
James 1:9

There were others, but those were some of which that really spoke to me. I am going to stop typing now. Bon Iver is great music to listen to while you BLOG. PEACE!!
