Horoscope Hoaxes

I looked at my horoscope today.

Now before everyone drops over from sheer horror, let me explain. I am a firm disbeliever in horoscopes. "Then why did you look at one?" Well, because they make me laugh!! For example, I went to the horoscope section on the Yahoo! webpage and saw my horoscope. I found out something I never knew!! This is what it said: "You're a little troubled over some small misunderstanding between you and a good friend -- but it should clear up soon enough! Try not to let it drag you down into an emotional swamp."

Wow! Had it not told me that, I would have never known I was troubled over a small misunderstanding!! I didn't know that, hmm.

Now, I am NOT troubled over some small misunderstanding between me and a good friend, and I am most certainly NOT in an emotional swamp! Life is going well, God's been good.


Anyone care to answer that?

People are so caught up looking for answers to all of their problems in life. They turn to drugs, they turn to alcohol, they turn to gambling; they just want answers! But what they fail to realize is, if they would just turn to Jesus, they would find every answer to every question. The answers for life's problems don't lie in some magazine horoscope section, the answers lie in Jesus Christ, "The Author and Finisher".

He wrote the pages of our lives, He knew how they would turn out! So why do you need some horoscope telling you what's what in your life when you should already KNOW.

And so, my dear friends, the next time you find yourself wondering what you should do today, don't turn to the horoscope page, instead, dust off that Bible and read what God has for you today. It will do you so much better than any horoscope could ever do.

Are They Afraid?

In I Samuel 18, the Bible is telling the story of David's life right after he was used to slay the giant, Goliath. Saul took him into his own house, David and Jonathan became the best of friends, and the Bible also says something that I found to be very interesting.

"And David went out whithersoever Saul sent him (He was obedient), and behaved himself wisely (He had character): and Saul set him over the men of war (He was willing to accept responsibility), and he was accepted in the sight of all the people, and also in the sight of Saul's servants." I Samuel 18:5

But even though everything seemed like it was going right, Saul became jealous of David's popularity, and verse 9 of I Samuel 18 says, "And Saul eyed David from that day forward." Now, we all know the story, an evil spirit came on Saul, he threw a javelin at David, but God protected him. This happened twice and verse 12 records: "And Saul was afraid of David, because the Lord was with him, and was departed from Saul." Verses 14 and 15 go on to state: "And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways; and the LORD was with him. Wherefore when Saul saw that he behaved himself very wisely, he was afraid of him."

So the story goes on, Saul offers his oldest daughter, Michal, to David in exchange for the foreskins of one hundred Philistines; David goes above and beyond that, and brings back double the required amount. So Saul honored his word and gave Michal to David. However, I Samuel 18:28-30 tells us, "And Saul saw and knew that the LORD was with David, and that Michal Saul’s daughter loved him. And Saul was yet the more afraid of David; and Saul became David’s enemy continually. Then the princes of the Philistines went forth: and it came to pass, after they went forth, that David behaved himself more wisely than all the servants of Saul; so that his name was much set by."

Because of the Lord's hand on his life, David behaved himself wisely and people all around him knew that God was with him. However, Saul was afraid of David because of that same fact.

Do you, as a Christian, bring fear to the world around you? Do your co-workers dislike you for doing your job responsibly? It doesn't matter who is mad at you, who calls you a brown-noser, who thinks that you are just a 'suck up'; all that matters is that we be the witness and testimony that God wants us to be.

Are people afraid of your walk with Christ?

Me and Matt

Hey, since I told everyone I was courting, I figured I'd post a picture of me and Matt together. This picture was taken last year at camp.

Welcome home Joe!!

Monday, I got a call from a good friend of mine, Joseph Flory, who had been stationed over in Iraq. He called to let me know that he was once again home on friendly soil. Praise the Lord!! I am so thankful for all the things he, as well as the other men and women of the Armed Forces have done for me, for this nation. Have you thanked a hero today?

My New Guitar

God has certainly blessed me! I like to say that He's been better to me than He's been to you! My most recent, prominent blessing is: I have acquired a 1988 Fender acoustic guitar!!

I bought it at a flea market for $300, and that included the case! Its a beautiful guitar, and like brand new, I have already gained new calluses on my fingertips from playing it so much!

Attention to all two of my blog followers!! Haha, and whomever else reads this.

I am now being courted by a wonderful, godly young man named Matthew Sehorne. I dont know what else to say. I feel very blessed to have such a man that had prayed for me for three years. And now the Lord has seen fit to bring us together.

Anyway, I just thought I'd share that with ya'll! I'm hoping to write something soon, but we'll see.
