Lets see whats new if anything... I have been sleeping in till like 1pm for a few days now... however, that is because I am up till 4am talking to Mikel. (Yes, I know I am crazy.)
Carrie posted something on facebook that really got me thinking (I will add it at the end). What if I really did spend as much time reading God's word and take my bible everywhere like I do with my cell phone. I spend a lot of time talking to people on the phone, texting people.. and generally I do not go anywhere without my phone. That's how it should be with my bible and God. I should spend most of my time talking to him and reading his word.... Whereas somehow i manage to hit 10,000 (yes, 10,000) texts a month not to mention a whole lot of minutes spent talking on the phone. How is it that I can spend so much time talking to others and learning about them, yet I don't spend anywhere near that amount of time trying to get to know my savior more or even just talking with him.... I haven't even opened my bible in a month... This is sad.... :( I mean what is wrong with me that I don't spend time with the most important person in my life? My problem is somehow.... someone else/something else replaced God... Which is really not good... So how do I fix this? I make sure I spend time with my Prince, Jesus Christ, reading His word and talking to Him.

READ THIS ALL THE WAY THREW ITS WORTH IT
Cell phone bible challenge
Have you ever wondered what would happen if we treated our Biblelike we treat our cell phone?
What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
What if we flipped through it several times a day?
What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
What if we used it to receive messages from the text?
What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?
What if we gave it to our kids as gifts?
What if we used it when we traveled?
What if we used it in cases of emergency?
What if we cared as much about God's Word as we do our cell phone?
Well heres the challenge:
first bring your bible (just a littlepocket one) everywhere you bring your cell including the grocerystore bathroom
next everytime you get on the internetsing a praise song to the lord (loud enough for others to hear butyou dont have to shout) it doesnt matter where you are sing to ourlord
next anytime you make a phone call youare talking so after you are done talk to the lord for atleast aminute
when someone calls you, you arelistening. So everytime someone calls you just be quite and sit thereturn off your music and just listen to the lord
now the one I hate because it is hard.Every time you receive a text you must read the bible (I am chossing3 scriptures make sure you make a number for you and start)
everytime you send (AHHHHHHHH) 10messages you must share the love of jesus with someone else. Tellthem jesus loves them (not a friend like a total stranger or someonewho doesnt know you ar a christian)
