    About God:

    How do you describe the indescribable? If all the seas turned ink, all the plant to writing tools, and all the sky to parchment, it would not be enough to describe God's vastness. That's the God I serve.

    God
  • God loves you (John 3:16).
  • God is holy and just. He punishes all evil and expels it from his presence (Romans 1:18).

    People
  • God, who created everything, made us for himself to find our purpose in fellowship with him (Colossians 1:16).
  • But we rebelled and turned away from God (Isaiah 53:6) The result is separation from God (Isaiah 59:2). The penalty is eternal death (Romans 6:23).

    Christ
  • God became human in the person of Jesus Christ to restore the broken fellowship (Colossians 1:19-20). Christ lived a perfect life (1 Peter 2:22).
  • Christ died as a substitute for us by paying the death penalty for our rebellion (Romans 5:8). He arose (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and is alive today to give us a new life of fellowship with God, now and forever (John 10:10).

    Response
  • I must repent for my rebellion (Matthew 4:17).
  • I must believe Christ died to provide forgiveness and a new life of fellowship with God (John 1:12)
  • I must receive Christ as my Savior and Lord with the intent to obey him. I do this in prayer by inviting him into my life (Revelation 3:20).
    Cost
  • There is no cost to your salvation comes to you freely (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • But it comes at a high cost to God (1 Peter 1:18-19).
  • Ultimately your response is a life of discipleship (Luke 9:23-24).

    Eclipse

    It's been forever since my last post, I know. Truthfully, I feel terrible about not posting for so long.

    My summer... wasn't all that great. It seems like I'm always battling something during vacation. Be it sins, emotions, or otherwise.

    During the entire time I've gone without posting, one of the reasons that I haven't blogged anything is because I've been too ashamed to do so. I've been ashamed because I was ( and still am ) fighting something that I know is wrong, yet still do ( repetitively ).

    Because of this sinfulness that I've committed, my past summer was spent in the feeling that I was spiraling forever downward, reaching out to an eclipsing sun ( a feeling that really leaves you empty ). I know God will forgive me, of course... but can I forgive myself?

    Another reason that I haven't been able to post is that it seems like I never have any time. If there's one thing that I've learned over the past couple months, it's that there's not enough time to do everything you'd like to do, so spend your time on the most important things. God comes first. Of course, I'm saying this as much to myself as any one else who may be reading this.

    It seems like whenever I was just about to sit down and write for the blog, something would come up. I'd have an appointment, or someone needed me. Even now, as I'm writing this, I've had a few people ask me to help them do something or been distracted in other ways.

    Once again, I appologize for not posting for so long, and I'm sorry if this particular post isn't the greatest, but it's pretty late where I'm writing it ( only time I could find 'time' to do it ). I really want to continue blogging, because it helps my Walk with God, and I hope there may be a little insight in my posts for you too!

    I'm so glad you can remember that God can forgive any sin. He is omnipotent. I will definitely keep you in my prayers with this sin that you're having trouble with. Ask God for help with it because He'll definitely help you. Just trust Him and know that He may not help you in the way you think He will. God bless! I'll be offering up my prayers and sacrifices for you.

    heh, have you read any of my posts recently?

    We have all been there my friend, it may be different circumstances but we have all been there. There is no sin, no repetitive act, no anything that can separate you from the unconditional Love and acceptance of Christ.

    Romans 8:38. read it, study it maybe? memorize it and stand on it. It will get you through any spirals. If God loves you no matter what, and forgives you, who are you not to forgive yourself? If the God of the UNIVERSE can forgive you, surely you can forgive you too.

    God bless you and keep you.
