The last 3 days have been sunny and hot. I got a sunburn on Friday but I'm starting to be more tan now instead of red lol. Stephanie and I went to a lion park about 40 minutes away Saturday morning. I had a great time and it was pretty amazing having a huge lion outside the car window. When your that close to a lion you get a better perspective about how amazing in Revelations when it talks about the lion and the lamb...wooza!
Went swimming with the 82 kids after church on Sunday it was nice and hot :)
Sunday night went to evening service. Every Sunday night we have a another resolve. Last nights was resolve to be different from the world; to be a history maker (by following God and walking in His ways) and we looked at Hebrews 12:1-2. And had some examples of the great cloud of witnesses who have followed God in the bible.
Towards the end he talked about Jonathan Edwards who was Puritan in the 1700s. He wrote a lost of 70 Resolves when he was 19 years. One of them was “Resolve to live for God; if no one else does, I still will.” How do you react in difficult times? When someone is annoying you or causing you trouble....its so hard not to react negatively though...my very nature doesn't want to act godly always in struggles. Read 1 Peter 4:12-16, 19 its about suffering. Are you prepared for the times where in a situation you will be the only one living for God?
