Haven't posted in a while so here is one.

I went to camp this summer and heard about a book called Do Hard Things. It is really cool. I read the book and actually just finished it today but I loved it. I will probably read it again. It was a really good book I would recomend it. Also you can go here to see the website. It is really cool. There is also a modesty survey that was very intersting. I really don't have that much to say. Bye and I hope you check out the Rebelution.

No Matter What ~ Jeremy Camp

I know that every time
I find the one thing that holds me back inside
I want to tear apart
And bring my selfish pleasures at your feet
Every part of me is an offering,
I will set forth and lay it down at your throne
Because I live for you alone

No matter what it takes I will offer,
Everything I am I give to you
Even unto death I will follow,
No matter what the price I will give to you now

I won't throw this time I have aside,
Your the very prize I have in sight,
You've placed this purpose down in me,
And it burns so deep
Let this life I lead bring you all the glory,
I'm entrusted with a gift that I can't hide
Revive my heart, revive my mind

To live is to really die
I will keep this steady pace,
Until that final day

Verse Posted By Susan

This verse was posted by Susan...

No one can ever be made right with God by doing what the law commands. The law simply shows us how sinful we are. But now God has shown us a way to be made right with him without keeping the requirements of the law, as was promised in the writings of Moses and the prophets long ago. We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes no matter who we are. For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. This sacrifice shows that God was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past, for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time. God did this to demonstrate his righteousness, for he himself if fair and just, and he declares sinners to be right in his sight when they believe in Jesus.
~ Romans 3:20-26
(New Living Translation)

And here are the lyrics to one of my favorite songs...

Incomplete it all began
The broken state that I was in
I wished that I was someone else
Cause’ I was lost inside myself
I started seeing who I am
The day my life with you began
You clearly solved the mystery
That finding you meant finding me.

God, I’ve fallen to my knees
I’m bowing at your feet
I give you all of me
In you I am complete
It’s all because of love
I’m not who I was
I’m who I’m meant to be
In you I am complete

God who doesn’t need at all
I heard your voice I felt Your call
It’s echoing I can not shake you off.
The stars that shine they bear your name
They sing the song that gives you praise
You’ve captured me
My heart is lifting off

I’ve got to tell the world about the things
You’ve done
I want to shout it out, I’m going to live it now
Amazing grace is why I’m singing

I love that song called, "Complete"! It is from the new Kutless album - "To Know that You're Alive". Aren't the words great?

And finally, does anyone have any thoughts on post topics or discussions we could start having on this blog? I would love to see this blog pick up again and see it encourage those who read it. Let me know if any of you have any ideas.
