yet another song...

and yes, i wrote this one. :)


his name
his name is Jesus
his love is true
his name is Jesus
he died for me and you

and when my heart is
sunken and hurt
my Jesus comes and
cleans out the dirt

today He'll love you,
tomorrow too
now and forever
the whole day through

He's love and mercy,
amazing grace,
consistent helper,
my resting place.

his name is Jesus,
his love is true,
his name is Jesus,
he died for me and you.

camp

just got back from camp!!! wh00t! it RAWKED. our speaker, Brandon Barnard, was GREAT. this wasn't one of those get-high-and-all-encouraged-about-how-great-God-is (though he IS great!) camps, it was a lets-find-out-how-to-live-our-faith-in-a-practical-way camps... a lot of issues came up, but hey, when God sculpts us, things in our life have to fall off for us to become more like Him.

one thing i learned at camp is how important it is to memorize scripture. i always memorize scripture, just cuz its the right thing to do i guess. but its best to do it cuz you WANT to. you need to, to fight off the flaming arrows from the devil (check out Ephesians 6:11-18).

another kewl way brandon used to relate God's Word to our lives is daily bible reading. of course i always try to read my bible every day (right now i'm reading through Matthew), but sometimes it doesnt always sink in. he told us about a thing called the James Challenge. what you do is read James chapter 1 every day for a week. then you read James 2 every day for a week, working your way through all 5 books of James. it sounds really cool, and our sunday school class is doing it as a group this week.

well i have a TON still to write, but i g2g. WRITE MORE L8R!

welcome to midnight.

Do you ever feel like your path with God is a big ol' question mark, instead of a straight line like it seems it should be? 2018 has bee...
