wot doesn't know if it's going last
oh kay, i had a pretty massive yesterday. well, slept late on thursday night, and had full load on friday. classes and then off to the city just to do a bit of look seeing with ryan, mad addie, melvin and jalene. and after that, there was a great session by russell sage

every step away from the flesh is a step into the spirit.

i dunno, after last night, it was a real challenge to exercise the giftings and talent's God's given us. to step up like Isaiah and say "Lord, here i am, send me." i know i'm the sort of Christian that likes to ease my way into things, flow like water and do wot fits, not be a resisting current to too much tradition if its working. if it's not broken, why fix it? or it wouldn't really matter anyway.

well, i guess the idea is to cast aside wot you think you know, and really listen out to wot God is telling you. and for you to act on it, to be obedient, and allow him to do his work in you.

there are a multitude of ways He'll speak, wot i felt last night was just promptings, and thoughts.. aroused suspicions that this could be it. and if you just allow yourself to respond, to look past the fear of making a mistake perhaps, you'll see gradually with spiritual eyes how God moves in an act of faith, not an act of doing the right thing. it's almost like, once you're sooooo unshure of the validity of wot you're doing that yoin the flesh world, you have to trust God totally to save the situation, that's one way He can move.

"But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong"
1 Corinthians 1:27
