we dont believe the bible.
if we do, why have we not yet sold all our possessions and given to charity? do we not trust the Lord when he tells us we are worth far more than lilies and ravens?

this isnt unclear.
this is no vague promise of blessing.

he says he will care for our every need. and i trust my earthly father
more than this. he tells me, “go to england. i will make sure you have
what you need.” and so i make plans to go. with nothing more than his
word to support me. and my friend says, “come with me to lunch. dont
worry about money, ive got it covered.” and though there is no money in
my pocket, i go. and i never doubt i will have enough.

but when my Father says, “go, sell your possessions and give to
charity” and “do not worry about your life, as to what you will eat;
nor for your body, as to what you will put on.” i am silent. i am still.

i do nothing.

and when you confront me, ill say, “that is for the rich man. the man who loves his money.”

but what i mean in my heart is: i need my money more than i need God.
my money can provide for me far better than my God. i have found my
security.

we do not believe.
i do not belive.

  2. it’s true, and it’s hard. part of me thanks God for it, but the rest of me is terrified of what it means and fights against it with everything i can muster, or just puts it off until tomorrow again.

  3. I dont think its really because we don’t believe, its more that we just aren’t willing.

  5. good thoughts… yeah we don’t seem to fully believe a lot of God’s promises.. if we did live in a way where we believed His promises, think of how different our lives would be…

  6. Um, we were in the same church service this morning?  God totally convicted me about this very issue today in church!  Crazy how He works like that! 
    And I think not only is it unbelief, but it’s also a lack of love.  If we love Him, we’ll obey Him.  How I wish I could love Him more!

  13. a while back, you asked me if there were any cool places close to campus to take pictures…. and a friend of mine introduced me to one recently called chickasaw park. if you want to check it out, she posted some pics we took there on her xanga (www.xanga.com/savannahmeadows)and don’t forget that i may be coming up there soon. so let me know if that would be more convenient.

  14. hi. i’m brad(ley)’s brother. it’s much more comforting to take the easy way out. “those words aren’t for me.” yet those words are for me. those words are especially for me, the american who ignores the pain in africa and the oppression in western europe and the vagabond in my back yard. “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it…” (Lk 11:28) thanks.

  16. i think on nic’s little feel-good-award-for-everyone thing, he should have given you the “most awesomely cool amazing profile pictures that inspire jealousy in all xangites” award. (i think i made up the word xangite)
