Prayer Needed

The best things in life are worth fighting for, and right now I\'m fighting pretty hard.

The spiritual warfare I feel is intense...

Please, please, please pray for me and what I am going through right now. I need all the prayer I can get.

Mary responded, \"I am the Lord\'s servant, and I am willing to accept whatever he wants. May everything you have said come true.\" -Luke 1:38

I finally read the last chapter of Captivating. I really needed it...

Aspiring Novelist at Work

Well, I literally spent most of the day writing (yes, for fun). It\'s been a long time since I\'ve spent most of the day working on my novel... it was cool to revisit my old friends. (Yes, I am a dork because my characters are my friends, but oh well).
When Mom came home we went to Target, Chik-fil-a (I saw Amber!), Hasting\'s, and Blockbuster. At Hasting\'s we bought three used DVDs for $21. Pretty good. You gotta love Hasting\'s. I\'m still on the lookout for either a used or clearance Creed the Greatest Hits CD. Anyhow, we bought Phantom of the Opera (which neither of us have never seen but felt compelled to buy), Lemony Snickett\'s A Series of Unfortunate Events (which we are watching now), and Finding Neverland.
Well that was my exciting day... maybe I\'ll have something more interesting to say tomorrow...

Random Musings About my Day

Tiger Woods got beat today. Yahoo also listed him as being #2 on the list of the most powerful and highest paid movie stars/atheletes/musicians. \"Well, at least you make more money than the rest of them!\" I told the image on the TV screen. Money doesn\'t buy pride and dignity I suppose though.
Mel Gibson was listed at #3, which I think is pretty awesome. I hope that there are many Mel Gibsons in my generation who will be willing to rise up and stand up for their faith in the entertainment industry... and be serious about it. I\'m not talking abou those rappers on MTV who are like \"yeah thanks God\" before they sing their new hit smash about drugs, sex, alcohol, and violence (and that\'s just the first verse, which is all you get to sing on MTV since it really has nothing to do with music.)
And lastly, I could have promised you that there was a tweleve year old chick driving behind me on the way home from Mamaw\'s and Papaw\'s... that was a weird feeling...

To All the Fathers... Though None of you Are...

Well happy Father\'s Day/Lauren\'s b\'day/Zach\'s b\'day!
Today was my first day in the AO Sunday school. Older college kids please do not take offense... y\'all are awesome and so is Charles, but it\'s a big change that\'s going to take a while for me to totally love. I miss Riley... *sniffles*
Anyhow, this morning at church during the service I saw this adorable little boy who had this cute little expression on his face, and I thought about how people truly are God\'s greatest creation. Granted we can be stupid idiots, but we were created in His image, and He is the most beautiful thing out there. More beautiful than the sunset or anything else. A sunset is gorgeous and captures my heart... but can a sunset giggle, smile, or make any sort of expression? Can a sunset love or feel any other kind of emotion? Anyhow, I just thought I would share that new perspective with y\'all... funny that I think about this after Charles points out in where in the Bible it says we are NOTHING... which is also true. It\'s a great paradox.
Tell your daddies you love them today!

Fathers be good to your daughters
Daughters will love like you do
Girls become lovers who turn into mothers
So mothers be good to your daughters too
Boys, you can break
You\'ll find out how much they can take
Boys will be strong
And boys soldier on
But boys would be gone without warmth from
A woman\'s good, good heart
-from John Mayer\'s \"Daughters\"

So at Big Stuf, Rachael and I had a conversation about having often set our expectations too high. I know I have high expectations for myself, which I often don\'t fulfill, and then turn around and expect the same things for other people, and then I feel hurt and get upset when they don\'t fulfill them.
We can all be so stupid sometimes.
Anyhow, here\'s a great quote from Captivating that I read the other day... apparently all women have high expectations for others (I don\'t know how much of this applies to guys- y\'all can let me know):
\"For a woman to enjoy relationship, she must repent of her need to control and her insistence that people fill her... In your friendships, in all your relationships, you will disappoint others and they will disappoint you...\"
The good news, however, is that Christ will never disappoint you. That doesn\'t mean that everything will go your way or that you will always be happy with what God allows to happen in your life, but He truly does know what is best. If we let Him work and move, it will be great. He is always there for us if we are willing to turn to Him. He goes beyond our expectations, and is more loyal than anyone on earth ever could be.

\"I put you on like an old pair of shoes... but now I need you... why this love never leaves me... why are you holding me tonight... can\'t deny this love that is given to me... why this love never leaves...\" -part of Bethany Dillon\'s \"Why\"
