Popcorn

Sunday, 17 August 2008 . 10:35

For those of you who do not know, a massive group of us just came back from a one-week experience at Soul Survivor Somerset, England. It is a Christian Camp with something like 10,000 people, everyone there for the same reason; God.
This year I especially took the opportunity to observe people and take/make time to get to know them better, something which I believe I managed to do! It keeps amazing me how different people are to eachother, how unique each being is. Psalm 139:14 "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." A thought keeps throbbing in my head, and a desire in my heart to get to know God better. You ask me how? By reading His word, reading about Him, talking to Him, by building a relationship just like we do with any other person! Trust, disclosure and gratitude are the key elements to building a relationship with God, as well as a Thirst to get to know Him better!

Mother Teresa once wrote ""...I thirst for you. Yes, that is the only way to even begin to describe my love for you: I thirst for you. I thirst to love and to be loved by you - that is how precious you are to me. I thirst for you. Come to me, and fill your heart and heal your wounds.If you feel unimportant in the eyes of the world, that matters not at all. For me, there is no one any more important in the entire world than you. I thirst for you. Open to me, come to me, thirst for me, give me your life - and I will prove to you how important you are to my heart..."

Being open with God and thirsting for God are the only way to truly get to know Him. Back at Soul Survivor, maybe some of you who came have felt this thirst this week and this urge to get to know God. Maybe you felt Him in a very special way, maybe you were touched especially, and maybe you weren't at all. Just remember that this Thirst for God is not something found only in Somerset once a year, its an ongoing evergrowing Thirst which is carried around wherever you go! Its the kind of thirst which the more you quench it the thirstier you get! Its a paradox but the more you thirst for God, the more God quenches your thirst, and the thirstier you get!
We are called to be the salt of the earth, to make people thirsty for God! Try eating a whole bucket of popcorn at once and tell me how thirsty you feel afterwards! I dont think i've ever seen anyone at the cinemas order a popcorn without ordering a drink. The two come together as one. You order popcorn and in your mind you immediatly think "Thirst" so you order an ice-cold Coke! That's exactly what we have to do, we must be Popcorn for everyone else. The relationship with God must be one that the second people taste what God has done in our lives, the thirst for God starts growing in them!

I think its enough for today... :)
Come on guys, let's go out and be Popcorn!!!!
Gbu lots!

Storms

Sunday, 3 August 2008 . 11:31

Jesus Calms the Storm - Matthew 8:23-27
Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, "Lord, save us! We're going to drown!"
He replied, "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.
The men were amazed and asked, "What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!"

Jesus Walks on the Water - Matthew 14:22 - 33
Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, but the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.
During the fourth watch of the night Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. "It's a ghost," they said, and cried out in fear.
But Jesus immediately said to them: "Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid."
"Lord, if it's you," Peter replied, "tell me to come to you on the water."
"Come," he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, "Lord, save me!"
Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. "You of little faith," he said, "why did you doubt?"
And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, "Truly you are the Son of God."


Storms always happen so unexpectedly. You wake up to one of the brightest, happiest summer days, and suddenly grey clouds appear out of nowhere and before you know it you're surrounded by thunder and lightning, scared, cold, and drenched from head to toe. All's dark, and you feel so so alone. The only thing you're certain of is the confusion in your head. everything's misty and grey, nothing is clear. Strong winds, bkinding lightning strikes, and thunder echoes constantly in the surroundings! You canot see an end to this storm... You feel as if you will never see the sun again or feel the warmth of its rays. You wuestion: Where's God in all this? Is He selfishly asleep in the boat not caring about what's going on in life? or is He far away on the river bank while I'm here in this boat, ready to drown any minute?
In either case, jesus IS THERE! If He's asleep in the boat, we should be happy he's there with us, and find comfort in His peace! If Jesus is around we're safe! We just have to believe it! And if He's on the river bank, don't worry! Just call out to Him and He'll come walking on the water, pull you out of the boat, and walk you to the river bank, safely out of the storm! Impossible is NOTHING! "if i keep my eyes on Jesus I can walk on water!"



LYRICS
how long have I
been in this storm
so overwhelmed by the ocean's shapeless form
water's getting harder to tread
with these waves crashing over my head

if I could just see you
everything will be alright
if I'd see you
the storminess will turn to light

and I will walk on water
and you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright
and everything will be alright

I know you didn't
bring me out here to drown
so why am I 10 feet under and upside down
barely surviving has become my purpose
cause I'm so used to living underneath the surface

if I could just see you
everything will be alright
if I see you
the darkness will turn to light

and I will walk on water
and you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright

and I will walk on water
you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright
I know everything is alright
everything's alright

New Challenge!!!!!! :D

Friday, 1 August 2008 . 10:24

This is sooooooo cool guys!!!! I suggest you try it one time!

So as soon as I got up this morning I opened my mouth to say "Good Morning Jesus!" ... but guess what... my mouth opened alright, but no words came out! So.. I'm absolutly voiceless!!! Zero!! No sounds coming out of my mouth except gargling and coughing and all that sort of stuff! hehe.. i even have a silent laugh!!
1 + 1 = CHALLENGE! This is my challenge for today and for until this voicelessness lasts. Today I'm going to evangelise TOTALLY through my actions! I mean, ur reaction is prob like "shouldn't you already be doing that?" ... true ... but today i'm totally conscious about it, since i dont have to worry about what to say :)
How cool man, today I'm going to evangelise through smiles, hugs, nods, and facial expressions! :)
We'll see how it goes!!!
