Challenging Words

This psalm has been on my mind lately. I am constantly challenged by it. I want to be this person, but am I seeking The Lord and letting Him teach me to be like this? There are a couple sections in bold that are specifically jumping out at me. What jumps out at you? I hope you are uplifted and challenged by this as well.

Psalm 15 (NIV)

“1 Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary?
Who may live on your holy hill?
2 He whose walk is blameless
and who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from his heart
3 and has no slander on his tongue,
who does his neighbor no wrong
and casts no slur on his fellowman,
4 who despises a vile man but honors those who fear The Lord,
who keeps his oath even when it hurts,
5 who lends money without usury
and does not accept a bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things will never be shaken.”

Our church is having a series of sermons that are dedicated to God’s Word and specifically getting words from God. I had grand plans to write several blogs today, do housework, and lots of other things. I did end up running a few errands and all of a sudden it was 6pm! Our poor little dog hadn’t gone outside for a decent walk, so I put my shoes on, grabbed my phone and started listening to this morning’s sermon on youtube while we walked. Oh yeah, I slept in and didn’t actually go to church this morning.

Wow, I was definitely getting a word from God. Very clearly, through the voice of my pastor, I heard God saying, “READ YOUR BIBLE!!!! You have no excuse, just do it!!!” So, instead of all the things I could be doing tonight, I am going to spend some time with God’s word. Have a great Sunday night!

Happy Valentine’s Day

Since it is Valentine’s day, I got myself a few presents. First, I started off with a foo-foo coffee drink from Starbucks – you know, the kind that takes longer to order than for them to make. Next, I had chocolate before breakfast in the form of a Hershey kiss and a mini bag of M&M’s. During lunch, the sun was out, so I soaked up as much Vitamin D as possible. Lastly, I treated my heart to a nice 60 minute run tonight and it felt great. I finally was in the mood to go for a run and the weather warmed up to make a nice night to be out running before sunset. Surely I had to have burned off the chocolate calories I ate today, right?

I’m not really celebrating Valentine’s Day, other than eating more chocolate than one should in an average day. Basically every night until this coming Saturday has been filled with me volunteering at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, Ben having class or both of us being busy with some other social activity, so we are celebrating Valentine’s Day on Saturday. No big deal to me because now we don’t have to fight the Valentine’s crowd to go out to eat or try to cook a nice meal at home on a week night!

I’m ending my night spending sometime with Jesus, the example of true and perfect love. Yay for Pandora worship music and the Bible!

Is Valentine’s Day important to you? What is your favorite thing to do or get on Valentine’s Day?
