Happy Thanksgiving!!

https://i1.wp.com/mommylife.net/archives/2009/11/25/thanksgiving%20pilgrims.jpg

Now thank we all our God, with heart and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things has done, in Whom this world rejoices;
Who from our mothers’ arms has blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love, and still is ours today.

O may this bounteous God through all our life be near us,
With ever joyful hearts and blessèd peace to cheer us;
And keep us in His grace, and guide us when perplexed;
And free us from all ills, in this world and the next!

All praise and thanks to God the Father now be given;
The Son and Him Who reigns with Them in highest Heaven;
The one eternal God, whom earth and Heaven adore;
For thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore.

 

 


Remember To Vote…

It is easy to think that this point in history is unique… especially when it comes to politics. Most people think that this country (USA, for my foreign readers) is the most divided it has ever been, and its nasty political ads prove this. Well… this clever video using actual quotes, should give some perspective on this idea…


Weekly Web Surf (Oct 31 – Nov 6)

Weekly Web Surf will (depending on how much time I have) show up more than once a week. Weekly web surf will have links to news, theology, and other stuff that I find interesting. Ok, have fun reading and learning…

 

Serving: A Distraction to listening?

-“She was shocked to hear that Jesus didn’t value her serving as much as Mary’s listening.”

One Year Later: An Interview with Matt Chandler

-“Last November—November 26, 2009, the morning of Thanksgiving to be exact—Matt Chandler’s life changed forever.”

Sin Neutralizers

-“Sin demands a response. And it will get one. The question is not, “Will I respond to sin?” You will. I will. The real question is, “How will I respond to sin?” Sin, like gravity, is one of those unalterable laws: it happens and, therefore, I must interact with it. It is not that we are helpless, or that we are victims of sin, at least not for the Christian.”

Who Needs Porn When You’ve Got MTV?

-“This is the content of the MTV video clips that are playing on the television screens when I visit my local gym each week. It’s nothing short of soft-core pornography, and I’m over it.”

The Conspiracy Theory Of The Gospels

-“Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. These are the Bible’s familiar four Gospels, received as Holy Scripture by all major branches of Christianity. From ancient times to the present, these four books have been the gateway to Jesus and his teaching. Friends and foes alike have formed their ideas about Jesus mainly from these books. But why these? Weren’t there once other Gospels which for some reason were excluded?”

 

 


Here I Stand (on Reformation Day!)…

https://i2.wp.com/www.corkfpc.com/95theses.jpg

Today may be celebrated as a day for ghouls and goblins, but today actually is a day meant to celebrate Martin Luther’s Nailing of the 95 theses (I am going trick or treating with my nephew… and I will gladly eat some candy).

Happy Reformation Day!!


Thought Provoking Quote of the Week (Feb 28 – Mar 6)

“The human heart is a factory of idols…Everyone of us is, from his mother’s womb, an expert in inventing idols.”

John Calvin

Video about creating an idol…


“Far Away”

Fantastic new song from Le Crae. Check it out.

From Desiring God Blog:

“Desiring God produced the music video for LeCrae’s new song, “Far Away,” over the weekend. It is now available for purchase, along with the mp3, for only $4.99.

If you want to buy just the mp3, it is available in iTunes for $.99. It is ranked 46 in Hip Hop as of now. Let’s try to move it into the top 10!

Buy either of these now and all proceeds will go to Haiti relief.”

Go… Spend a buck…

Far Far Away (You feel) Far Away. (You Seem) Far Away.. So So (x2)
Hopeless!
I can spell it
I can smell it in the air
Lotta people wonder if you still care
And are you still there
Cuz I dun lost it all
I keep calling your name
But do you hear my call
And are you still involved
Or am I left alone
I wander the streets
Cuz I no longer have a home
My brothers all GONE
My sisters all GONE
My families and my friends aint gonna be here in the Mornin
Ya see me hear mourning
They say you feel my pain
They say you went through it
Say to die is to gain
But I aint gain nothing
I lost everybody
Now Im losing my mind
And my faith is all Im counting
Im still holding on
Thats why Im still pray
Feelin empty inside
I cant make it through today
I dont know what else to do
I dont know what else to say
Im talking to ya now
But I promise you feel so far

Far Far Away (You feel) Far Away. (You Seem) Far Away.. So So (X4)

Dear hope: Been waitin on ya for a while now
Been cut so deep that I aint sure if I can smile now
Look at this devastation
Look at the pain and sorrow
Somebody fed me lies and promised me a bright tomorrow
I know the God I follow
Is bigger than disaster
Big enough to handle
Any evil that harasses us
But I feel like he passed us
Pain overtook us
Buildings tumble over head
As the ground shook us
God have you forsook us
Lord you still with me
I know you save souls
I trust you to forgive me

Relief can you hear me
Hey Rest can you get me
Hey Peace can you see me
Hey love can you heal me

I dont know what to do
I aint looking for answers
I just need you to hold my hand
Through this cancer
Tell me you never left
Even in the midst of death
Breathe on me Ill do anything to feel your Breath

Far Far Away (You feel) Far Away. (You Seem) Far Away.. So So (X4)
(PSALMS 62:5-8)
5. For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
6. He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
7. On God rests my salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
8. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us.

(Far far away.) Hes not (Far Away) No hes not (Far Away) Our Gods not Even though he seems


Not Enough Time…

If you have checked my blog lately you have probably noticed that I have not posted much recently. This is because I am in college and it is end of semester time. That means finals, papers, projects etc, etc, etc. So the blog takes a back seat for these couple of weeks. Don’t worry, I am keeping tabs on some cools stuff that I find around the web. I will begin posting all sorts of stuff when this semester is over and done with (praise God!). But if you are bored go check out the “archives!” I have posted a couple hundred things in the past year, so that should keep you busy for awhile.  The only thing that I will try to update is the ongoing news concerning Matt Chandler. He is totally worth taking the time to update the blog! I will be up and running again in a few days…

Wish I was here again… contemplating how awesome God is… while staring at the ocean… but thank God that I can have memories like this!
