College Conference

This past weekend, we enjoyed the Lord Jesus at the college conference in Latham Springs.  The conference was concerning the rise of the young people.  We learned that it is necessary to have a  morning time with the Lord.

 "And rising very early in the morning, while it was still night, He went out and went away to a deserted place, and there He prayed .  And Simon and those with him hunted for Him, and they found Him and said to Him, All are seeking You.  And He said to them, Let us go elsewhere into the the nearby towns that I may preach there also, because for this purpose I came out.  And He went preaching in their synagogues in the whole of Galilee and casting out the demons.  Mark 1:35-39.

I enjoyed that the Lord rose "very" early while it was still night and also went to a deserted place to pray.  Sometimes when I wake up its light outside.  The Lord was able to wake up even before the sun to pray, to have a morning time.  Then it says that Simon and those hunted for Him.  The word "hunted" is the same as the word "pursue"  The disciples pursued after the Lord early in the morning, and they found Him.  Then the disciples went on to say that everyone was looking for Him, but the Lord went another direction, saying that they should go elsewhere.  The ones that were "seeking" the Lord are the ones that did not get up early in the morning to hunt/pursue the Lord.  We need to be those who are desperate in our pursuit of the Lord in a real way.  A way that is early in the morning before the sun even gets up.  Praise the Lord for his burden for us to have a morning time to seek out the Lord in prayer.  May I seek a time in the morning to touch the Lord everyday, early in the morning

Today I started reading from the Book of Job.  The first 5 chapters cover so much concerning the sufferings that one man, Job, takes to fullfill the relationship with our :mysterious God".  I really enjoyed seeing all that Job went through, the loss of all of his possessions and the personal sufferings that went on with his health.  I think many of us, when times get rough, start to fade away, and even blame God for all that is going wrong in our lives.  We tend to "run away" because we don't like the outcome of a certain situation.  Job was tested by Satan, to the highest degree, without taking his life; Job still praised God and looked to Him.  What faith he had!  The thoughts that come into our minds from various things, the evil that comes to us at the worst times, and all of the heat breaks tha we experience, are all from Satan.  We need to continue turning to God and follow His leading.  God is our source of enjoyment, because He Himself is Joy, not evil.  

" may be enlightened to realize that, according to the good pleasure of God's heart's desire, man should be filled with God to be the expressionof God only, rather than the expression of man's perfection in his uprightness and integrity." - Job 4:8 Footnote 8:1b

I really do appreciate that care that the church in Austin, had for me and the students of Christian Students on Campus, to get us reading the Bible on reading schedule.  This had really allowed me to seek the Lord first in all things, and not my own desires.  It has made moving back to Flower Mound just a little bit easier.  I am glad that I was able to go back to Ausstin and get my Bible, so that I can dive into Him!

Praise the Lord for the Word of God!!!  I recently went back to Austin and as able to gather some things that I had not brought up the Flower Mound yet.  One of the things I forgot was my Bible.  This morning though I was able to wake up and actually get into the Word.  I am behind on the reading schedule, but since there is nothing to do in Flower Mound, I should be able to catch up quickly.  I was able to read Gen. 1-11 today!  God gave us "His Bow" to remind us and Himself of the covenant He made to us.  No matter what we do, or how bad we get..... God loves us!  Throughout this whole book there is so much foreshadowing of what is to come in the rest of the Bible.  I am not 100% clear on the 3 falls of man, so hopefully someone can help me out.  Also the "curses" that were put on people I am not to clear on.  The footnotes in this Bible are amazing.  For many things can be cleared up by just reading the footnotes.  Sometimes we just need companions  and other members of the Body to help us understand.  Praise the Lord the Bible!  Thank you to all of the students at UT  who are in Christian Students on Campus, who helped in my walk with Christ!  Who would of ever thought that the Ark is a type of Christ...oh I can't wait to get in this more!

Well, today was the first day of work in a retail store here in Flower Mound.  It was very different.  The one thing that I do know is that the pace is very slow.  In Austin, I was used to working at a very fast pace, yet here, I was right, you don't do too much in the front of house.  There were times, that I was actually bored out of my mind.  I really hope that, eventually, things start to pick up.  I view this as a challenge, a challenge that I am willing to take on, for me and the company.  If I can become even more useful in this company, then I think that this company can take me many places.  I really miss home right now, I don't know how long it will take to get used to everything.  I miss my friends back home, hope they didn't forget about me yet!  Please pray for me, that I am making the right choices and that God is the one leading me, not me, myself, and I.  My Fit Foods is a great company and I am looking forward to the future!


There is nothing to do in FloMo
Well, I am here in Flower Mound, it hasn't been a week yet, and I am homesick.  I really do miss Austin so much.  I don't really feel conected here at all and the pace of work is so much slower.  I actually feel bored at many times.  I miss the brothers and the home so much right now.  I don't really know what to do.  I know that I can not keep going on like the way that I am.  Work wise, I need to have a pay raise and actuallly something to do, that is a challenge.  I can not just go to work everyday and do the same petty things.  I left a job in Austin that required so much more of me and was able to push me to grow in the company.  I feel now though, that I am being held back and working a dumb 'high school" job.  I want to be able to move up in this company so bad, but all I feel like I did was make a lateral move, that hasn't improved my skills at all.  I left my Bible at home in Austin, and I really do need that.  I need the truth, the brothers, the homes, and everything that Austin was able to give me.  I don't have it here and I am falling back into my regular routines of spending money and well your typical FloMo stuff.  This town boring, there is never anything to do, and I am surrounded by a bunch of rich people who think they are better than everyone else.  Don't get me wrong, I was once one of these people.  So to bring it home, I might be moving back to Austin if this does not get any better.  I still need to talk to some people and see if what I am doing is the right thing for the company as well as for me.  I also need to fellowship to see if this is what God wants of me or if I did this on my own.  Please pray for me!

Today, I moved from a city that I was never really fond of, but a city that grew on me through the connections that I made.  Last night, I said goodbye to my best friend, Travis Brinkman, that was one of the hardest things that I had done.  Though we will still keep in touch, its not someone that I will be able to see everyday and confide in like have done for so long.  I know the Lord will provide for both of us, and we will continue our friendship as well.  This morning I was able to have breakfast, at Juan in a Million, with an amazing brother, Roderick Johnson, this brother really has shown me so much Christ since I have known him.  I really do apprectiate the Christ that the bothers have been able to share with me for such a long time, so that I might be able to go on in the Lord!  I went back up to My Fit Foods and then I left Austin.  Thank you everyone who has made me a better person, I appreciate you more than words can describe.  I also still need your Christ, so don't forget about me.

Well, now I am in Flower Mound, back home.  This is still kind of scarry for me.  It is such a new place for me eventhough I was raised here.  My old self (who I was in high school) is definately different than who I am today.  I really hope that the Christ that I have gained will be able to shine through and it wont have to be too different that my life in Austin.  I was able to meet with my dear brother Andrew Watkins today, we had a great time.  I hope that, while he is here, we will be able to have much fellowship and growth in Christ.  We all need companions.  I believe there is song about companions, if anyone knows it, please let me know.  I do feel that I am home, yet at the same time I feel so far away from everything.  I really do, right now, miss being in Austin, especially with all of the brothers.  I know the Lord is doing something in my life, and I will trust Him

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, but in all your ways, aknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight" - Proverbs 3:5-6

I left this most wonderful peace of living literature in Austin!  I am so lost in what to do.  I guess I can still read online at Living Stream Ministry, but I want my Bible, because I can, well you know.  I need the brothers and I need more of Jeusus, more and more and more, I need more of Jesus than I ever had before, I need more of Christ as Life!, (I  forgot the rest someone please help)

Today, I said goodbye to all of the people that I work with at My Fit Foods - Austin.  I really realized how much I appreciate the people that I work for.  I will truly miss them,  and the care that they gave me.  I will still be in the company, just a new place.  I really am not good at these goodbyes.  The Lord really has provided so much for me here in Austin, it makes it hard to leave.  If He was able to provide this for me here, I am sure He will do the same in Flower Mound.  Thank you My Fit Nation for all of your support and guidance!
