Exposure to the Son may prevent burning

Apply your heart to discipline, and your ears to words of knowledge. Prv.23:12

11/17/05 02:23 am - Nonpoint

I saw Nonpoint at Floyd's tonight. They were so awesome. It was an A-mazing show. I always love seeing those guys and their shows are always good, but tonight's show is the best one I've been to yet! I was really into it too. ^_^ Fun, fun, fun. The night also served as a reunion with some figures from the past, which was interesting and not bad, but taking it with a grain of salt. Things have changed. I have changed, my life has changed.
One of the highlights was geting to hear "Your Signs" live, which I'd been itching for ever since I got it into my mind that it applies to some people in my life. So, here's a dedication to a few people in my life whose signs aren't pointing the right way for me, or so it seems(prove me wrong, go ahead). Oh, and dig this, Elias totally has scripture on his page in the booklet for their new CD among other things that point in the direction of salvation. Hooray for salvation!

Nonpoint - Your Signs

Gotta make a list of what is best
Gotta make a fist and beat against
Have to leave an impression
Do you have a suggestion
I'm all out of good ideas
The ones you have always put into your ears
With all you care to share
How did I end up here

Your signs are pointing to nowhere
That's exaclty where I won't go
Your signs are pointing to nowhere
And no one that I know
That's all you care to show me
Care to show me

Gotta make a list of what is best
Gotta make a fist and beat against
Have to make this perfectly clear
I'm not waiting for one million years
For us in general
You make the chemical
Situation I put us in
Unfamiliar in foreign land

Your signs are pointing to nowhere
That's exactly where I won't go
Your signs are pointing to nowhere
And no one that I know
Well that's all you care to show me

How would you like me
Where would you like me to be
And could you make me worry
Just a little more
*The way you look at me confuses me
Even with you me next to me*

Your signs are pointing to nowhere
That's exactly where I won't go
Your signs are pointing to nowhere
And no one that I know
Well that's all you care to show me
Your signs
Your signs
(Show me)
Your signs
Care to show me
Care to show me
I won't go

11/12/05 10:37 pm - Contact or not there can still be pain

I played flag football for a few hours Friday. It was my first time and a lot of fun. Afterwards is a bit of a different story, but whatev. Today, however, I feel like my body from the waist down is covered in bruises and worse. Its interesting even if it is painful. lol. I said I wish I could do things like play flag football more often and this doesn't change my mind. In fact, it convicts me of it a little more because if it was a regular activity in my life I would not be so sore and I'd be more fit. haha. Fit. Check out The Streets and the song "Fit but you know it". Its lovely how different countries and cultures have different idiomatic expressions, uses for words and meanings for words.

I read this morning and really enjoyed it.

Isaiah 40 (New American Standard Bible)
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Isaiah 40
The Greatness of God
1"(A)Comfort, O comfort My people," says your God.
2"(B)Speak kindly to Jerusalem;
And call out to her, that her (C)warfare has ended,
That her (D)iniquity has been removed,
That she has received of the LORD'S hand
(E)Double for all her sins."
3(F)A voice is calling,
"(G)Clear the way for the LORD in the wilderness;
Make smooth in the desert a highway for our God.
4"Let every valley be lifted up,
And every mountain and hill be made low;
And let the rough ground become a plain,
And the rugged terrain a broad valley;
5Then the (H)glory of the LORD will be revealed,
And (I)all flesh will see it together;
For the (J)mouth of the LORD has spoken."
6A voice says, "Call out."
Then he answered, "What shall I call out?"
(K)All flesh is grass, and all its loveliness is like the flower of the field.
7The (L)grass withers, the flower fades,
When the (M)breath of the LORD blows upon it;
Surely the people are grass.
8The grass withers, the flower fades,
But (N)the word of our God stands forever.
9Get yourself up on a (O)high mountain,
O Zion, bearer of (P)good news,
Lift up your voice mightily,
O Jerusalem, bearer of good news;
Lift it up, do not fear
Say to the (Q)cities of Judah,
"(R)Here is your God!"
10Behold, the Lord GOD will come (S)with might,
With His (T)arm ruling for Him
Behold, His (U)reward is with Him
And His recompense before Him.
11Like a shepherd He will (V)tend His flock,
In His arm He will gather the lambs
And carry them in His bosom;
He will gently lead the nursing ewes.
12Who has (W)measured the waters in the hollow of His hand,
And marked off the heavens by the span,
And calculated the dust of the earth by the measure,
And weighed the mountains in a balance
And the hills in a pair of scales?
13(X)Who has directed the Spirit of the LORD,
Or as His (Y)counselor has informed Him?
14(Z)With whom did He consult and who (AA)gave Him understanding?
And who taught Him in the path of justice and taught Him knowledge
And informed Him of the way of understanding?
15Behold, the (AB)nations are like a drop from a bucket,
And are regarded as a speck of (AC)dust on the scales;
Behold, He lifts up the islands like fine dust.
16Even Lebanon is not enough to burn,
Nor its (AD)beasts enough for a burnt offering.
17(AE)All the nations are as nothing before Him,
They are regarded by Him as less than nothing and meaningless.
18(AF)To whom then will you liken God?
Or what likeness will you compare with Him?
19As for the (AG)idol, a craftsman casts it,
A goldsmith (AH)plates it with gold,
And a silversmith fashions chains of silver.
20He who is too impoverished for such an offering
Selects a (AI)tree that does not rot;
He seeks out for himself a skillful craftsman
To prepare an idol that (AJ)will not totter.
21(AK)Do you not know? Have you not heard?
Has it not been declared to you from the beginning?
Have you not understood (AL)from the foundations of the earth?
22It is He who [a]sits above the [b](AM)circle of the earth,
And its inhabitants are like (AN)grasshoppers,
Who (AO)stretches out the heavens like a (AP)curtain
And spreads them out like a (AQ)tent to dwell in.
23He it is who reduces (AR)rulers to nothing,
Who (AS)makes the judges of the earth meaningless.
24[c]Scarcely have they been planted,
Scarcely have they been sown,
Scarcely has their stock taken root in the earth,
But He merely blows on them, and they wither,
And the (AT)storm carries them away like stubble.
25"(AU)To whom then will you liken Me
That I would be his equal?" says the Holy One.
26(AV)Lift up your eyes on high
And see (AW)who has created these stars,
The (AX)One who leads forth their host by number,
He calls them all by name;
Because of the (AY)greatness of His might and the strength of His power,
(AZ)Not one of them is missing.
27(BA)Why do you say, O Jacob, and assert, O Israel,
"My way is (BB)hidden from the LORD,
And the (BC)justice due me escapes the notice of (BD)my God"?
28(BE)Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The (BF)Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth
Does not become weary or tired
His understanding is (BG)inscrutable.
29He gives strength to the (BH)weary,
And to him who lacks might He (BI)increases power.
30Though (BJ)youths grow weary and tired,
And vigorous (BK)young men stumble badly,
31Yet those who wait for the LORD
Will (BL)gain new strength;
They will (BM)mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.

10/2/05 03:16 pm - Thought for food or is it food for thought? ~_^

ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS. A good thing to remember the next time you ask someone why they think something about you inspite of things you say.

10/2/05 03:13 pm - Random thought

Listening to the news the other day I heard a sentence with this in it, "President Clinton and former President Bush" and I paused for a second. Wouldn't they both be former presidents? I wonder if the woman talking at the time is a democrat. lol.

9/27/05 01:41 pm - Marc Broussard's "My God"

My God, My God
Why have you forsaken me?
I cannot find the light, and I'm constantly running from daylight
God, My God, help me find the way
Back to your Lovin, ohhh

Oh you are the way, the truth, and the life
Burn over me, Lord, send your might
Oh I can do nothing without you
With your strength this dark night, I get through
I'll get through

My God, My God
Heal this sin-stained soul
I give my life to You, take me and make me whole
My God, My God
I'm lost and so alone
Drowning in a sea of develation
Help me find, help me find my way back home

Oh you are the way, the truth, and the light
Burn over me, Lord, send your might
Oh, I can do nothing without You
With your strength, this dark night, I'll get through
I'll get through

My God, My God, My God
I know you've not forsaken me
but i cannot find the light, and im constantly running from daylight
im lost and so alone
drowning in a sea of desolation
help me find, help me find my way back home
my God,

oh you are the way, the truth and the light
burn over me, Lord, send your might
oh I can do nothing without You
with your strength, this dark night, I'll get through

8/24/05 03:17 pm - Interesting words to contemplate

Ecclesiastes 9:11,12
I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all. 12Moreover, no man knows when his hour will come: As fish are caught in a cruel net, or birds are taken in a snare, so men are trapped by evil times that fall unexpectedly upon them.

Ecclesiastes 8:6-8
For there is a proper time and procedure for ever matter, though a man's misery weights heavily upon him. 7Since no man knows the future, who can tell him what is to come? 8No man has power over the wind to contain it; so no one has power over the day of his death. As no one is discharged in time of war, so wickedness will not release those who practice it.

8/9/05 11:31 am - Each day is trouble enough in it's own right

Lord, give me strength and wisdom and a heart full of love and compassion. Let me speak the truth and the truth alone and let me lead by example for I am observed by many. Help me to walk your holy and righteous path. Help me endure and rejoice in your name. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Jars Of Clay \ Blind

Cynical, it's just your way
You play the doubting Thomas
Feel the scars and wipe the stains

So you fight, and retreat
And talk yourself out of believing
In any peace that you can't see

Blind words you call
Blind words will fall

You're logical, you can't find
Any reason to believe in love, you are blind

Crucify, and deny pass the blame and burn the mission

Till dust remains and wash your hands

Blind words you call
Blind words will fall

Blind words you call
Blind words will fall.

I pray for you.
