Our God. (Rundown #6)

I was scrolling around on iTunes in the Christian music section, where all great young men search ;-). And I came across a song that I love..."Our God" by Chris Tomlin. I then proceeded to go to Youtube and listen to the whole song. And I really thought about the lyrics.

Our God is greater, our God is stronger, God you are higher than any other. Our God is healer, awesome in power, Our God, Our God.

And through interesting experiances like mission trips and things of that nature. I am so amazed and in Awe of a God who is Stronger, Greater, Higher, a Healer and a God who is Awesome in Power.

After my chruch group mission trip to Birmingham, Alabama, God really changed my perspective on Life; and it made me eager to share Jesus to not be afraid, And because of this, the bridge means so much.

"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?!"

Acts 18:10 says " Do not be afraid, keep on speaking, do not be silent. For I am with you..."

"To live is Christ, and to die is gain."

Things to think about. (Rundown #5)

Um, soo....I've been kinda checking out my own blog and I've come to realize/understand some things.

I think most of the stuff I've been posting are what I call "Superficial and Homosexual." Not the stuff about God, or even my running, I just don't think I've been genuine with my blogging. So time to start over.

Philippians 3:10 says "That I may know Him and the power of His ressurrection and the fellowship of sharing with Him in His sufferings becoming like Him in His death."

Now this really applies to me spiritually in terms with where I am, and How passionate I am to know Him, to really know Him. I do, I want to have the fellowship of sharing with His sufferings becoming like Him in His death.

What this means to me: I want to know Jesus fully, and if it causes me to suffer the way He did, ya know, where he was beaten, bloodied, and bruised for me. Or even if it causes me to die the way He did. I'm really thirsty for what He has in store for me, and if this is part of the plan, then I embrace it.

Just a few verses down in Philippians 3:13, Paul says "But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining on what is ahead. 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenard in Christ Jesus."

What this means to me:
I really struggle with forgetting whats behind. Too many regrets, sins, and other crap. It's hard to forget. But if I want to move forward in my personal journey with Jesus...It's vital that i do this, Forget what's in the past, Paul says, and focus on what the future holds and what God has in store.

Other things that have been speaking to me...Ecclesiates. The whole book really speaks clearly to me. Everything in this world is Vanity, Or striving after the wind. And when it's all said and done, To fear the Lord, is what I should spend my time doing, instead of whining about why i don't have an iPhone or something.

As far as Running concerned, My next race is this Saturday. "The Midsummer Night's Run", It will be fun, I'm really pumped for it. I have no idea if the training I've done for it will pay off...But something over the past few weeks has really taught me to be content. I've won trophy's and other awards...broken my own records. It would be cool to PR, but if I don't, life will be just fine.

But only because "It is Well."

Rundown over.

God Bless,
