It's been too long . . .
Wow. My last blog post was last year! Amazing!
Well, I just wanted to let the world know that I am alive and well! Haha. Of course, those of you in my life know that well, some of you only in my website land only know the beginning.
A lot of things have happened. I sold the laptop I had, and built a new computer (fall last year). I have been utterly devoted to the Lord and the study of the Word of the Lord. Even now my Bible sits open on my desk freshly flipped through. I have caught up on Lost due to the recommendations of a few people in my world (AMAZING SHOW!!), and am currently trying to get my mom current in Lost land. :D BioShock 2 finally came out, and I am a little disappointed with the multiplayer system, but I seem to play it anyway. Loved the single player. Hoping for massive improvements for BS3.
The past few weeks I have been blessed to be able to see one of my favorite teachers from high school, and help him with computer troubles he's been having. To be honest, I have enjoyed the fellowship and perspective his company brings thoroughly, and have enjoyed being able to be a blessing to him -- and of course he's blessed me.
God's really been bringing to light this theme in my life -- a scripture that has been in my mind for years, but has recently come alive -- "Give and it shall be given unto you, in good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over." Only, I find that my desire is not to get anything out of giving.... I have reached a place where I am happy to be giving as unto the Lord and am openly willing to receive all that He has for me, but I truly am seeking to bless the Lord!
That's really the key to it all for me . . . really. I want to be a blessing . . . not just to people, but to the Lord AND to people. I will be glad to either meet the Lord in the air or reach His throne at the conclusion of my life this side of eternity and to just see a look of happiness and blessing on the face of my Maker. Do any of you ever think about that stuff? I think about that. I want to be someone that God sees and smiles. I know some of my favorite people have to do nothing more than just be, and it makes me smile. Well, I want to be that to God.
I love Him! The pursuit of God abandoning all else has brought me a fulfillment I've not found in years.
