Do you live an uncomfortable life? I want to...
It's uncomfortable to spend time with God everyday
It's uncomfortable to not spend your money on whatever you want.
It's uncomfortable to be the only Christian in your house
It's uncomfortable to live below your means so you can give beyond your means
It's uncomfortable to follow God's will in your life
It's uncomfortable to take a path into the unknown
It's uncomfortable to for go earthly things for heavenly ones
It's uncomfortable to not date when the rest of the world is
It's uncomfortable to only be understood by the One no one understands

How can you be uncomfortable?

What do I wanr for Christmas?

Well, Christmas is in three days. All I've been asked lately is what do I want for Christmas? Really...nothing. I am content with what I have. I could use a new phone, but my brother is supposed to be getting me that. Besides that I really don't need anything. But I decided to put on here a list of things I wish I could have...

1. An Apartment
2. A round trip ticket to Colorado
3. A tall black dresser
4. My parents to come to church
5. No fights at Christmas

That's what I want for Christmas

When I was in DLA we always had to be flexible. Everything was always changing, we never really knew what was going to happen. I think that helped me a lot. It helped me to learn to take directions without really knowing the reason. A lot of people say the number one rule on missions is flexibility. I learned this again this week.(I believe I am on mission always.. His mission, it might not be overseas, but its still a mission) With news that Adam and Katie will not be back til next week, it was a time to be flexible. We just had to work out a few details and now everything is all ready. Flexibility is so important in ministry. There have been so many times that I have had everything all planned out and something happened and I had to drop everything to deal with it. A student called who needed something, a friend needing someone to talk to, something in Alive and Fuel needing to be changed. But now I don't really get upset. I know God is in control of my day and I will get done what He wants me to. I remember reading a book, where the author was talking about interruptions in his day. Someone coming to his office needing to talk, at first he was upset by the interruptions, but then God laid it on his heart that they were there for a purpose. Now when he has someone come to him, during his busy day, he just says: God must have sent you, lets find out why your here. What an awesome way to think about a change in plans. Things in life are always changing. It not about weather we change or not, its about how we cope with the change. I always want to be open and flexible for whatever God might have come my way.

Corinthians 9:19-21 (New International Version)

19Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. 20To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. 21To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law), so as to win those not having the law.

Even Paul was flexible... depending on who he was with!
