I will not run with the computer virus metaphor.  I am sure that is a great relief for the few that actually read what I write here.

I just finished up my paper on the Baptism in the Holy Spirit for my class on Acts.  It is called “The Baptism in the Holy Spirit:  Initial Evidence, Eternal Importance”.  It has really helped me to refocus on the importance of the Holy Spirit in my life.  I find it so easy to forego that intimate daily time with God in the midst of LIFE.  Even “ministry” can find its way between me and the Holy Spirit.  Timely as always God prompted Pastor Nate to send out a framework for daily time with God.  I have attached this document at the bottom of this post.  Certainly this kind of personal time with God is one of the best ways to protect ourselves from the virus of my earlier post, along with real daily time in His Word. “Thy word I have hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee.”  Psalm 119:11.

Too Early?

It may be too early in the morning for me to Blog but I am going to do it anyways.  Of course that begs for the question to be asked, “Why are you up so early?”  I fear that I do not have an adequate answer.  I woke up with a bit of the sniffles.  I don’t know if I have managed to acquire another cold of if my allergies are kicking in again.  I guess we will see what happens over the next few days.  So I have been spending my morning FBing and working on my blog as well as having some quiet time with God.  l guess really it is no longer so early.  All things considered the morning has been productive so far.  It is actually a little chilly which is nice after the spell of hot weather that we have had.

We are beginning to iron out the plans for the second half of the summer and are looking to the fall also.  Allana is going to Pittsburgh in October for a Worship Leading conference.  She is very excited and a little apprehensive.  I have been invited to take a trip to Haiti later in October and I am feeling led to do it.  However it will really be stepping out in faith financially. 

The whole school thing has bogged down a little bit but I am still working on it.  It is nice that I can work on it over the internet.  There was a misunderstanding about the paperwork that I needed so I am in the process of getting everything to CBC that they need.  I am just trusting that God has it under control and that he will work it out the way that he wants and the way that is best!

Well of course having had my morning coffee and now that it is after 8 and the girls should be up soon, I am beginning to feel drowsy.  Well today is pretty much an unplanned day.  We went to church last night and most of the Lewis House will be away.  I should be able to nap, catch up on some Bible studay and just generally relax.

I have neve been much of a morning person. I lie here considering my day, feeling the various aches and pains that resulted from my activities yesterday. This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. This is a mandate not a promise. It does not depend on what my day will bring. It depends on the state of my relationship with God as I put my faith to work in a fallen world. “Delight in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart”. Last night in small group we talked about Paul and Silas in the Phillipian jail. They were delighting in their Lord and Savior in circumstances that were not delightful. They received the desire of their heart….the salvation of the Phillipian jailer and his family. Lord help me to Delight in You throughout this day that the desires of my heart would rest in your will.
