Jordan // Sunday Afternoon

Today I wanted to take some pictures of my little sister Jordan! She is super curious and fun! Its always fun to have a little sister around! She compliments me way too much! We started taking pictures in our back yard, but later on I decided I wanted to go to a spot in our neighborhood that is GORGEOUS! It makes my heart melt ever time I drive past it!

The Devo | Commentary

“Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. Beware of men, for they will deliver you over to courts and flog you in their synagogues, and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them and the Gentiles.

“Wow, this seems so intense and scary. If I was one of the 12 disciples I would have been scared to death. You know when you go somewhere and I looks like fun but you really don’t know what you have gotten into?! Like at camp, the ropes course always got to me. I did it but part of me was like why did I sign up for this. I bet that’s how the disciples felt after hearing these words from Christ.”

When they deliver you over, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour. For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.

“This is a little more comforting to be reassured that your not alone in this. Jesus got cho back”

Brother will deliver brother over to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death, and you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.

“Hope. Keep pressing on”

When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next, for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes. “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. It is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master.

“It’s amazing how many people call themselves Christian but their lives look nothing like Christ. -multiply movement.”

If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign those of his household. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:16-25, 28 ESV)

I want to be his disciple, to have no fear and really truly follow Him with my life! Where ever He leads me I will follow with my whole heart! If I had to give everything up for the sake of Christ and His glory I would.

Fun Fact #2

I love fun number sequences.If you we’re to ask my friends why my favorite time is they would tell you 12:34! I am not sure why but ever since my junior year I have fallen in love with silly numbers. They pop up throughout my day and they make me so happy! Some of my other favorites are 1:23, 3:21, 10:10 (this is a joke for those of you who make a wish at 11:11).
But let me warn you, just because I like these numbers does not mean that I love math.

I have accumulated screen shots of my iPod at these times. Here are a few…

Fun Fact #1

I have come to realize that I am a very unique person. So I will be periodically posting fun little facts about me!
The first fact about me, that I’m not too proud of, is that I’m an extreme moocher! Probably because I never eat junk food and I know that if I had my own junk food I would be morbidly obese.
So if you sit next too me and you have a bag of gold fish, I will more than likely ask for some:)

Live out your days the way you want to live your life

I want to start by asking everyone to stop and take a moment to pray for one of my really good friends Kammy. Her father passed away on¬†Monday¬†in the middle of the night from a heart attack. I don’t really know how or why but I just ask that we would all be praying and that we would realize how short life is.¬†

I finally finished the book Crazy Love by Francis Chan last night. Basically I have been inspired to spread the gospel even when I don’t a calling and even when I don’t feel like it. Jesus¬†commands¬†us to be fishers of men and ¬†that we need to go and make disciples in all nations. He¬†doesn’t¬†say that you are to be fishers of men when you feel lead to do it. He wants this to be our focus and joy. I know that there have been plenty of times when I have had a chance to tell others about Christ but¬†because¬†I¬†didn’t¬†feel like it, I¬†didn’t. I am just super ready to go to Nepal and tell others about Christ even when I am tired, sick, sad, excited, happy,no matter how I feel!

Another thing from the book that I LOVED was this¬†quote:¬†¬†“live out of your days like you want to live out your life”. I have always had a dream about the kind of life I want to live, what I ¬†want to be like and the things I want to do. Sometimes I find myself praying for God to make me¬†different¬†and to create new character in me and I just realized that I need to be apart of that change too. That if there is a way I want to live my life, then why not strive for that kind of life everyday. I am not sure if this is making sense, but days go by fast and last time I checked I am a wave in the ocean and I don’t last long. I want a life full of love and joy, I want to serving and not worrying. I want to be radical for Christ. And for me that starts with my family. I want us to be united and I want to love them without reserve of regret. I ¬†don’t want any anger or malice towards them. I want to share with them my heart, I want to get them involved with what God is doing in me and what He is doing in the world! I want to be¬†Christ¬†to them right her and right now. That is how I want to live my life. In endless love towards others like Christs life.¬†
