Spiritual bums

Lately I've been realizing that I am a lazy bum! Yes, I am willing to admit to it. Most people don't like to be called "lazy bums," they get all defensive and make up excuses...save your breath hun, you're a lazy bum!
Now please understand, I'm not talking about being physically lazy..couch potato's..no no...i mean spiritual lazy bums! Quite frankly, I am a busy body! Honestly, I am always doing something...im shopping, out with friends, family nights, reading, playing my guitar, doing chores, rollerblading...I'm a busy body. So physically, I wouldn't call myself a couch potato, however i would call myself a spritual couch potato, a spiritual bum! Lately I've been feeling like I'm under some sort of attack, I feel like something is in my way...I see what I want to acomplish, what kind of person I want to be, what I want to see myself doing, how I want myself to act, what I want myself to know...but something is in my way, blocking my visi…

All I know is that He knows best!

I might not know a lot, but what I do know is that He knows best! In the last few weeks He has shown me that He will answer the desires and dreams of His children's hearts but it will be in His time and for His glory.
Here's my theory-When you walk with Him and listen to Him daily, He begins to plant certain desires in our hearts. It could be that He's calling you to witness to a certain person, He might be calling you to go feed the homeless, or serve in some ministry at your church or go overseas and plant churches. Whatever the desires might be, if you're walking with Him you'll know that they are from Him. Now here's the tricky part.... sometimes we confuse the given desires with "I must fulfill this desire right now." I call this "a clueless traveler." Why "clueless" you might ask. Well just because God plants the desires in you, it doesn't mean you have it all to fulfill it right now. It takes a while. You want to feed t…

Up and thennn i go downnn

Well, as we all know life never goes the way we plan it. The key is to NOT have a plan at all...maybe have goals and dreams, but don't plan things, because in the end it most likely will not go the way you want it to go. I'm not talking about bumps in the road...complications and all. But complete change of plans. Its gets crazy!

Lets see how can i explain my title of this post...hmm. A month or so ago i was on fire, i was ready to go out there and do whatever it is that i thought i was going to do. I was also on fire for the Lord, and life was just great! that was the "up" in my title..now i go down...
I am not on fire for the Lord, and i don't understand why..this part hurts the most. Its not like i've got anything to complain about right? I mean i've got a great family, I've got an amazing friend i can count on, I've got the freedom to dive into the Word of God and talk freely about Him...what is there that i should even complain about? Thats w…

The bumps in the road just make the ride more fun!

Hey!!  "Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand."-Proverbs 19:21 We can plan and plan, but only if our plans are within God's Will do they succeed! 
Flexibility is key! How you respond to changes in life and the little bumps in the road, tells a lot about your character. It tells a lot about what you put your faith and trust in. Yes we get upset and frustrated that something doesn't go our way, and it takes a lot of energy to remind ourselves "God is in control, His ways are perfect." For some reason, we want to do things our way and our way only...and when something is not right..oh boy you better watch out! Wouldn't it be easier to grab God's hand and say to Him "Will you walk down that road with me Father?" i doubt He'll say no. God is here, always. 
Whenever I went to Mexico with my youth group, my pastor called the trip "Flexico," you have to be flexible, you can't be s…
