Now I ask myself the question… Could I do this??? Well while checking the news on FoxNews.com I saw a video about a couple that decided to live off a $1 a day… At first I asked what about housing etc. but as I watched the video they said that they only ate a dollar a day. It’s pretty interesting to hear some of the findings that they discovered in their project. Go and check out their blog and see what I mean. http://onedollardietproject.wordpress.com/
So to begin my blog I have to admit something to the world….
“I WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 3”
Yes I know what you are thinking but I really don’t care it was fun…
But with all that said I ask a very important question. What about High School facinates the American culture? Almost every great movie in history has revolved round High School.
As I was leaving HSM 3 I started to ask myself this question and started to reflect on my years in high school.
Maybe it’s the fact that you have the fun of life and little problems of life, or maybe it’s the finding yourself or maybe it’s just the simple things that happen in high school.
I know this makes no since and I will elaborate further in future blogs but why is High School “HIGH SCHOOL”…
So i find myself forgetting to blog more and more, considering that this is the 1st time I’ve blogged in October. Well life has been great. Todd and I and som other guys from the church went to Catalyst last week and it wasa incredible. I for so long have had no desire to read and saw no use in it. But after this past week I realized why they say “Leaders are Readers and Reader are Leaders”.
I used to think that all these guys that wrote were talented but what did they have to say to me that I couldn’t personally hear from God or spiritual leaders in my life, but when I heard them and heard their passion and desire to see the people of Christ rise up and take their place as ONE BODY TOGETHER I realized that they had incredible things to say.
So i have committed to myself to read and read a lot. Now this is hard since I have not read an entire book since High School. But I know that I need to read so I begin.
I will be chronicling my reading journey on my website… http://www.kevinsmithband.com… so check it out…
So I have been strugling the past couple of days with the feeling that I wasn’t getting anything done. So today when I started working I sat down and just did it.
My how that really works, both in work and in our spiritual lives. We always complain, atleast I do, that I am not communicating with God enough or with my wife enough etc. I am realizing that it just takes us JUST DOING IT. Mybe that’s why the Nike ads are so popular. “JUST DO IT”
So I challenge myself to JUST……
So it’s been a while since I was able to blog.
Life is incredible and God’s grace blows me away every day. I wake up and look at my children in awe that God could do such an incredible thing through them and with them. But life has ups and downs and I find myself in the downs a little more then the ups.
I question myself as to why I allow my downs to overcome my ups. Is it that I don’t focus on the here and now or is it that I allow my surroundings to overcome my focus. I don’t know but all I know is that God is wanting me to focus on Him and not my circumstances. May I trust in Him and Him alone.
Though the cherry trees don’t blossom and the strawberries don’t ripen,
Though the apples are worm-eaten and the wheat fields stunted, Though
the sheep pens are sheepless and the cattle barns empty, 18 I’m singing joyful praise to God. I’m turning cartwheels of joy to my Savior God. 19 Counting on God’s Rule to prevail, I take heart and gain strength. I run like a deer. I feel like I’m king of the mountain!
This passage of scripture hits me every time.
Do I truly worship God in every season and circumstance? I pray that one day I will be able to say that.
