Thoughts On Fasting
Putting up some thoughts about fasting. As I sit here partaking in another friday night-fast (12/30/11), I feel compelled to look deeper into it. I refuse to look up scripture on Google. Time to open up this beautiful bible and actually look for myself. Jesus fasted for forty entire days and nights in the wilderness. I want to know why! I want to know how! I want to know! Ahh, just thinking about...

Retreat was a huge blessing. Learned and was reminded of so many things. Looking back at the retreat, I can’t help but feel so humbalized. As I was coming back home, I couldn’t shake this feeling of sorrow in my heart. Why was I feeling so down? When I got home, I just prayed and sat in silence. So much self-reflection. I’m so unworthy as a brother, as a friend, as a servant of...
This Christmas was truly wonderful :] Was blessed to meet up with the family in New York. All the gift-giving and smiles were heart warming. Ahh, just being with the loved ones makes me so happy. God is too good to me. Every year as I grow more and more in Christ, I find myself seeing these family gatherings a little differently. Honestly, the salvation of my cousins, aunts, and uncles is...
The Son of God became a man to enable men to become Sons of God.– C.S. Lewis
Anonymous asked: Phil 4:13 :] you can do this!
The more I think about it, the more I realize I am extremely, EXTREMELY inept at anything pertaining to problem-solving and/or finding a solution. Evidence of statement: failing physics + maintaining a solid C- in pre-calc. Got back my physics quiz today that I studied mad hard for. 68% wahoooo. Got back my pop-essay quiz in english today of which I did not even read the book for. 88%. I can...
My bride, do you remember your first Love? And the feeling you had for Me? Do...– Levi The Poet (via katweenah)
It just feels so wrong.
Probably because it is. As much as I want to convince myself, the truth stands firm. Let me not be blinded by my own desires, Father.
How great is our God? I cannot fathom. Father, I wasn’t expecting anything. I chose not to expect anything. My body was hurting, had no food in my stomach, I was honestly so beat up before the 1st match even started. But Lord.. 3 wins AND 3 pins!? Beating kids 10-22 pounds heavier than me!? I am not even a strong 160 pounder. I don’t deserve this. I don’t deserve anything. All...
Weighed out at 161.4. Run tonight, i’ll make 160.0 tomorrow. This week was tough. I both succeeded and failed in disciplining myself this past week. Many ups and downs. However, God has been so faithful. Father, thank You for absolutely everything. Please continue to carry me throughout this entire season. Allow me to wrestle above and beyond expectation tomorrow. Whether I win or lose,...
Christ Lives!: Day 269 – Such Love →
forgivenmuzic: Luke 23:34 – “Father, forgiven them; for they do not know what they are doing.” (NASB) If all the scenes around the cross, this one angers me the most. What kind of people, I ask myself, would mock a dying man? The words thrown that day were meant to wound. And there is nothing more…
So today at wrestling practice, Werntz sat us down for a good 15 minutes before practice just to talk to us. He normally doesn’t take this much time out of practice to speak to us, so I listened attentively. He started off about how he was pretty pissed that around half the wrestlers hadn’t shown up at practice the day before. Most of them with poor excuses. But then he started to talk...
Anonymous asked: how, how in the world are you so spiritually devoted, shoot, ill never be on your level, please, teach me how to do it, please teach me how to get that fire back, i had it once, but idk where it went=/
Lord, You are too great. How a casual, tired wrestling bus-ride back can turn into a spiritual conversation. I thank You for giving me that opportunity. I pray that I may have planted many seeds tonight. Lord, even if it was just one seed. Anything to further Your kingdom. Allow them to see what I am seeing, because I am so deeply in love with You Father. THANK YOU! Ahhh. Saved by grace, not by...
This will be one tough week. I’m not even going to say how much I weigh right now.. Argh. Why the heck have I been gaining so much. It’s been consuming my mind, it’s becoming all I’m thinking about.. So much worry, so much anxiety. Just been constantly thinking about how I’m gonna get this weight off. Especially with coach texting me every day, I can’t help but...
Sooooo many thoughts.
Sooooo little time. So much to say, so much to do. So much prayer needed. So much love needed. So much grace needed. Does anybody else feel the anguish I’m feeling? If so, please stand up and do something. If you want change, SHOW IT. Actions speak louder than words, your lifestyle speaks LOUDLY. Particularly towards my brothers, it’s time to man UP. It’s time to start...

a love that sustains.
a thursday night devotional, 12/8/11. I should probably be studying, but I feel the need to get this down in words first. I type this up in hopes of blessing anyone who reads this. One of my favorite stories in the bible is the story of the Israelites. This story essentially begins in Exodus, but I love it because it resounds to this very day. I feel like the sovereignty of God really shines...
I think too much.
I feel like sometimes my thought process is never-ending. I’m always thinking about everything. Sometimes significant things. Many times, extrospective observations that become introspective. Social observation. E v e r y thing. I wonder if anyone else thinks what I think. But then again, I feel like I wouldn’t even be able to begin to verbalize my thoughts without seeming absolutely...
Dreams are so unusual. If only some dreams could be reality. One more day of thissssss. Father, PLEASE let me pass this time.. I don’t want to keep cutting until Saturday.
Dragging my body around the house, wandering aimlessly, doing absolutely nothing productive. Can’t shake this feeling. No motivation to study, no motivation to lose 14 pounds in 3 freakin days, no motivation to do anything.. All I honestly want to do is pray, lay in my bed, and read the bible. Don’t wanna do no Newtonian Dynamics, don’t wanna read about how we annexed Hawaii....
Why. One more week of cutting. I hate this.
