Study Time!



I just wanted to drop a quick note for today to let you all know that my time on the blog will be a bit spotty for the next few days at least. Everything is really good. Better than in a while. However I feel strongly impressed to be studying right now. Very much so. Gotta run with it. So I just didn't want anyone to be worrying about me, because I am having a great time!


Hope your week is going better than you expected!

Great to hear everything is good! I think the Lord has been impressing on many of us to take a little break here and there to spend more quiet time w/ Him. I heard a good quote from Carolyn Mahaney the other day that said...If we allow service to God to over ride our communication with God - we will be ineffective. Sometimes He just wants us to stop and be with Him. Miss you already, but can't wait to see what you have to share!-Blessings!

I hear ya- when He is speaking it is best to be quiet and listen. Oh and write it all down real quick so you don't forget.

What Does it Mean Anyway? "Free to Fly"...

Well, it's like this: Here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Free: a : having the legal and political rights of a citizen b : enjoying civil and political liberty c : enjoying political independence or freedom from outside domination d : enjoying personal freedom : not subject to the control or domination of another2 a : not determined by anything beyond its own nature or being : choosing or capable of choosing for itself...having a scope not restricted by qualification 7 a : not obstructed, restricted, or impeded ...Now, here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Fly:1 a : to move in or pass through the air with wings b : to move through the air or before the wind or through outer space c : to float, wave, or soar in the air ... a : to take flight ...6 : to work successfully ...Examples which apply from Websters: fly high : to be elated - fly in the face of or fly in the teeth of : to stand or act forthrightly or brazenly in defiance or contradiction of

What does this mean in my life? This means that in life we are meant to be free. While historically mankind has not always enjoyed the opportunity to fully appreciate what that means, we are so indescribably fortunate as to live in a time of the greatest spiritual, physical, financial and political freedom ever known. Freedom doesn't come cheap, nor does it come easy. But the best things in life don't come that way do they? As I write this I am struck by how this sounds like a political statement, and for me this is much more of a spiritual thing, but, same goes for that (political that is). Freedom doesn't come easy. And it's worth whatever fight you have to make to overcome in your life in order to live a life that succeeds. Now the questions is - what is success for you? What is your standard? In my mind what is needed is a definite target - because you can't hit and maintain a moving target. A stable, rock-solid, anchor with no variable, yet multi-faceted. Something pure, just and worthy. If you look at any web page of news you can see that our society is certainly lacking in this area. What a great time to live as a rebel! Nowadays to be a rebel, all you have to do is be willing to engage in the battle of life, while anchored to Christ!
