So I've been going through training over the last few days at Walmart. I've spent about 16 hours sitting at a computer and watching informational videos. My eyes and brain hurt right now. Well, funny thing, I found out that quite a bit of the stuff I was watching didn't matter. I will be a cashier but the system that they use in the videos isn't the system they use anymore. So all that time that I spent was pretty much wasted because I will have to learn everything with the new system.
I am tempted to make a correlation between that and something within the Church, but I think I will take this one off.

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Wasted potential

So last night at 1 am, when I was standing outside Best Buy I had a thought, that there is so much potential within people to do great things but we waste it. Naturally the potential is revealed through all the time and resources that we have, but it is also very much through the talents that everyone has. For everybody the opportunities that arise to use our potential vary but the opportunities are there.
It made me sad to see and think about. How we have become so consumed with ourselves and how we can get ahead of the next guy. All I could do was offer a simple prayer. But this morning it's still on my mind, but I think that that is a good thing, remain aware of it and be changed.

Pre - Thanksgiving Retreat

So I am going to begin this post with a shameless plug for the place we went. It's the wilderness retreat center and is run by wilderness fellowship ministries. That is there website. It was a really good place to just get away for a little while. They had four cabins for group use and also had prayer cabins for more private time. It was rustic but really beautiful! I would very much recommend it for a short retreat. One of the most remarkable parts was that they run through free will donation, crazy right?! They don't force anyone to pay but just expect that the Lord will provide and for the last 40+ years He has.

Anyways, now for the rest of my post!

Stepping up

Well I got my first newsletter all done, envelopes are addressed and have been stuffed with the letters. All that's left is for me to get the stamps and get them in the mail.
I have gone through many hours of thought but God continues to lead me in this direction and with each step I take I become more locked in toward internship.
The letters will be out soon and then I will just pray and wait for the Lord to provide. I'm glad that I've gotten through this round though and now can turn my attention to other aspects of school.

An exciting time, part two!

So I wanted to get this post out much earlier, but it has been a busy time and I've just had a hard time getting my thoughts straight and having a solid block of time to write them out. Well I am just going to go with it, because the longer I wait the less I will be able to remember.
The highlight of the last few weeks is that I was approved to go on internship. I got my team assignment and found out where I am going.

How He Loves Us

So let me just start off by saying that this may be the best post I have written or may ever write. Not for anything I say, that can't be over stated but because of the content and reality of the topic. It's boundless and it's depth is ridiculously great! As the title states I will be talking about the Love of God. But let me start this off with some help from Louie Giglio

There's a lot more to say but I will save it for after the jump.

Crosswalk media

Pics and Vids from Crosswalk


Well, third time is a charm. I finally had the chance to do a crosswalk on a weekend when I didn't have a scheduling conflict. It started at 4 am on Saturday, October 29. As 5:30 closed in we got into our cars and put our blindfolds on. After 2 hours of been driven out into the country we reached our destination, a grove of trees in the middle of a field. Our driver guided us to walk in one direction and while we walked he drove off.
