Who's Checking Us Out

Some Thoughts

While listening to my playlist today, the song From The Inside Out really caught my attention. The lyrics are powerful and remind you of God's gracious love for us. We studied Mark 2 this past weekend in our small group and the point of those verses kept going through my mind today as I heard the song. God will do miracles where Faith is shown regardless of how we got to the place we are at. It doesn't matter if you've failed a thousand times, God's mercy on you will remain.

In Mark 2, four men carry their paralytic friend to a house where Jesus is, so that he can heal him. They go through great lengths to get into the house where Jesus is teaching and once they get his friend inside through the roof, the miracle/healing happens. Jesus starts by telling the paralytic that his sins are forgiven, (the actual healing and miracle) and then orders him to stand up, pick up his mat and walk out the door (the healing and miracle people see).

Forgiveness of our sins is what heals our soul and strengthens our faith. It allows God to consume us from the inside out and in turn allows us to love Him from the inside out. God uses broken and imperfect people for His perfect purpose. So even if you stumble again, you will be caught in God's grace. God is everlasting and never ending and his light will shine through us when all else fades. Pray for forgiveness of your sins and allow God to heal you and use you. Let your Faith be strengthened. Lay your burdens and fears at the cross and witness a miracle in your own life so that you can stop being that paralytic and you can walk with the Lord.

School's In For Summer. . .

As the blog title says, it's not Alice Cooper's School's Out. I know, random but I was singing the song before writing this. Anyways, has anyone seen my #2 pencils and my notebook? Yeah, I need to find them because I started school yesterday for my new venture into IT Network Security. I am really excited to dive into all that is networking and computer security, although I know it will take some time for me to learn it. So back to school I go and hope to get good grades and master the art of networking. Here's a little Dilbert humor for your afternoon. Time to hit the books and get some coffee!

New Spicy Chicken, Thumbs Up!

So I just finished trying the new Spicy Chicken Sandwich at Chick Fil A. It was good! I mean, I enjoy Chick Fil A anytime of day any day of the week. But now they have upped their game for my taste buds. I was expecting a buffalo style chicken sandwich drenched in sauce but it was quite the opposite. The spices they used were sweet at first taste, then the spicy comes in and makes an entrance. I decided to forgo any dipping sauce to give this new venture an unbiased taste and I'm glad that I did. I give the new Spicy Chicken Sandwich an A+! And like the commercials say, I will Eat Mor Chikin!

I didn't take a picture of my sandwich before I ate it because I was hungry and secondly, I was hungry. So here is a picture of what it looks like. I found this online. Enjoy and be jealous of my taste buds right now.
