Gotta admit, these Eze readings arent my fave. kinda like Leviticus and some chapters in Numbers. I know great teachers can really pull some amazing stuff from it. But very good point, God is a God of order and percision.

James is great to read...doesnt matter how many times you read something in the Word, you get something new everytime! v.1-3 are right on, gotta be careful and determine ur motives. We can fool ourselves sometimes into thinking our desires our Godly when in reality they are not (they are evil). Thats when u gotta pray God will reveal your heart to you....the heart is wicked, dont trust it. We still have our sin nature in us, though we are given a new heart and mind thru Christ, we arent always operating fully in the spirit. the flesh creeps in there. I had a verse posted up once on myspace (Psalm 37:4) and some guy i never really talked to n wasnt aware if he was a Christian straight out rebuked me for putting that verse up. I was hurt...but he was right! But how would this guy know my motives? he didnt...but God did and he was just the messenger. I was seeking to delight myself in the Lord in order to get God to give me this guy I wanted. But, God straight out used this other fellow to rebuke me. its true! God's not a robot or maid we order around, trying to get wat we want from Him. Sure He longs to bless us, but its HIS will, He knows us so intimately deep down, what we think will delight our hearts, is wrong!! What did God give me? Not the guy I wanted, but a deeper, closer relationship with Him. I didnt realize THAT was what I wanted, but God knew that would be more fulflling. yes, i still love this guy, but I had to put this aside b'cos my soul desires Christ, my flesh desires this dude ;).

See, our hearts our wicked...dont ever trust them. I feel straight out awful for even confessing that to who knows how many ppl, but I'm know I'm not alone, just honest ;)

I was just thinking of this yesterday, then i read it last night in your blog...friendship with the world. I was thinking about how ppl at my work...my coworkers/friends have parties a lot and i never get invited, tho ppl at work like me plenty. but I overhear after the fact ppl talking about parties and stuff that everyone went to but me. . I was thinking of that yesterday...not really hurt, but wondering about it. then i thought, no way...I have chosen the road less traveled and will not walk away. that old lifestyle has no appeal to me anymore (Resist the devil and he will flee). I will walk the way of the cross, for its the better way. I have no regrets and know in the next world i will have no regrets.

Friendship with the world is to be "in the world" to love the things that are of the world...we are to be sanctified. We gotta be careful because the world can draw u in b4 you realize it! We cant leave the world as paul talks about somewhere?? It doesnt mean u cant have nonbeliver friends...this stumped me a bit as a young believer, we are to be a light on the dark, the salt of the earth, I truely love all my friends so much. But I dont see how you can have an deep, intimate friendship with a nonbeleiver...if you are walking in the light and they are not...its just not possible. Light and darkness cannot dwell together.

James is awesome but I better stop, this is getting reallly long!

I love this: " The stone that the builders rejected has now become the cornerstone." I used to listen to a song by Jars of Clay with that in the lyrics and really wondered what it meant, was really thinking about it and didnt even pray about it, but that Sunday at church the pastor discussed that verse the whole service. haha, God is sooo awesome!!! Who doesnt want a Father like this...that hears your innermost thoughts and desires and speaks to you when u dont even ask! God is so great!!

i really love the rest of that Psalm too! beautiful. Proverbs has great stuff. this is too long tho, i will meditate on it on my own. =)

Your picture today of the cat walking past all those German Shepards reminds me also of Psalm 23 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
