Well it is now glorious Tuesday! And for those of you who do not have the luxury of reading Oswald Chambers every day (MY UTMOST FOR HIS HIGHEST – best daily devotional ever!) here is today’s entry… it’s so good.
THE EXCLUSIVENESS OF CHRIST
“Come unto Me.”
Is it not humiliating to be told that we must come to Jesus! Think of the things we will not come to Jesus Christ about. If you want to know how real you are, test yourself by these words-“Come unto Me.” In every degree in which you are not real, you will dispute rather athan come, you will quibble rather than come, you will go through sorrow rather than come, you will do anything rather than come the last lap of unutterable foolishness-“Just as I am.” As long as you have the tiniest bit of spiritual impertinence, it will always reveal itself in the fact that you are expecting God to tell you to do a big thing, and all He is telling you to do is to “come.”
“Come unto Me.” When you hear those words you will know that something must happen in you before you can come. the Holy Spirit will show you what you have to do, anything at all that will put the axe at the root of the thing which is preventing you from getting through. You will never get further until you are willing to do that one thing. the Holy Spirit will locate the one impregnable thing in you, but He cannot budge it unless you are willing to let Him.
How often have you come to God with your requests and gone away with the feeling-Oh, well, I have done it this time! And yet you go away with nothing, whilst all the time God has stood with outstretched hands not only to take you, but for you to take Him. Think of the invincible, unconquerable, unwearying patience of Jesus-“Come unto Me.”
So yeah that was a good one, wasn’t it?
Today I woke up and worked and had a wonderful time doing it too. Then I went to the co-op office and signed up for a Co-op seminar of sorts. Basically this is an hour long session which explains what I’ll be getting into doing a co-op and what will be expected. After signing up for that I visited the career fair at the Field House… but it was mostly dealing with careers in management, military and finance. There wasn’t very much VCT friendly stuff going down and if there was I missed out on it because the fair ended at 3pm. Well then I hunkered down in my van and drove down some roads that eventually led me back to my house. There was no mail. I petted my dog. I sat down in my room and booted up old faithful (my iBook) and proceeded to log on and check email and AIM for a bit with Lee and Holly and Anthony. Then my stomach got the best of me and I ate some mac and cheese (not the processed Kraft-whizz bilge that so many of my friends adore) no this was hardcore real home made mac and cheese that was heavily seasoned with my all-time favorite spice, Paprika. Now I am blogging and tonight I will have BS with Lee and Becca and Mike et al.
Oh yeah and I surfed the 519 website and found this:
It’s a picture of Tess… I can’t figure out why she doesn’t like having pictures taken of her. It reminds me of a picture of Chad too.
UPDATE: I have now discovered yet another picture of Tess online… hmmm, you decide which one you like more 🙂
