Congratulations Class of 2013!
I am starting to read a book, The Battlefield Of The Mind By Joyce Myer. This is how to dicpiline your thoughts and gain control of your mind.
Why is it so important to get control of the mind? The importance is that every action that ever has been taken was once a thought. Every event in human history has began in the mind, wheather good, bad or indifferent. The mind is that which steers our whole body(Proverbs 23:7)
The fourth proof for God’s lack of existence is a fairly ill conceived. The premise of this argument is that the secular-minded scientists can make advancements in the scientific world while religious-minded scientists can’t, presumably because they are too busy…praying? Regardless of how weak the argument is, it would do justice to go through and refute it. Follow this link to read the article itself.
I would first like to refer you to this wikipedia page. It lists most great Christian scientists. If read through the list, especially the 17th century, you will see the biggest players in the formation of the basis for many modern scientific and mathematical ideas: Newton, Galileo, Pascal and the list goes on. The modern scientific method wouldn’t exist had it not been for these Christian scientists. Yet, the author tries to tell you that only non-religious people can help advance our scientific knowledge? Sounds like the author is acting outRomans 1:25 — exchanging the truth for a lie.
Lets set the Scene Jacob and Esau are twins. Esau was born first so he was entitled to the family blessing. As time went by and a shady deal came to pass for a bowl of soup and a deception that involved Jacob pretending to be Esau stipped Essau of his birthright and the Family blessing. Needless to say Esau was furious, furious enough to kill Jacob.
Jacob leaves to find a wife. after several years, 20 if your counting. Jacob decides to go back to his fathers land. The Land God had told him was promised for his family.
Hope is a powerful thing. It can keep us going in the bleakest situation, can drive us to survive horrible situations and keep joy in our hearts through thick and thin.
I’ve been thinking a lot about hope pondering over Proverbs 13:12, a hope deffered makes the heart sick, a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. So hope is a powerful thing, and can destroy us when it is deffered or no more.
In todays world spirit and ghost worship and curiosity is starting to become very popular. There are TV shows, ghost hunting tours and places sites where people can go and see parinormal activity.
The bible makes clear that we are either here or in heaven or hell. There is no in between when a person wanders the earth. 2 Corinthians 5:6-10 speaks about being absent from the body is present with the Lord. Hebrews 9:27 tells us after we die we face judgement.
Have you ever had a friend call you on something you shouldn’t be doing? You know you are in the wrong, you know you messed up. It is embarassing, correction hurts. But, the hurt of correction can sure save you a lot of trouble.
I have had my share of struggles with this earlthy tent of mine. It gets tattered, painful, and doesn’t seem to act the way I hope it would. Sometimes I get discouraged as I watch it change and deteriorate a little as I get older, and even get scared when the doctor tells me bad news.
This earthly tent I’m talking about is my body. You might be wondering why I’m calling it a tent, let me explain and hopefully it will give you some hope as you face day to day struggles with your own tent.
I’m not brave. I never have been. I have to be coaxed into doing new things, and the place I like best is my bedroom, because I’ve always felt safe there.
Recently, I’ve had to be really brave–or at least, what constitutes as brave for me. I applied for college, and got accepted. In less than a year, I’m leaving home. I’m going to be away from my family and the friends I’ve had since childhood.
