Girl's emotions

I'm going to be
honest and say it amazes me how easily a girl can be swayed or
emotionally affected by a guy whenever he does something "sweet,"
in the sense that he says, does, or expresses something complimentary
or just generally speaking, emotional towards the girl.
I can
watch a guy who knows that what he's saying isn't really that
heartfelt or that original say it simply because he knows what a
powerful effect he's going to have on whoever she is, and uses that
to his advantage.
I can also watch how girls melt when they watch
some guy do something "sweet" to any extent and think "O..
he's the man of my dreams!  How I long for such a guy like
To just be honest, sometimes this makes me sick,
becuase the guy could very well be a jerk with crafty words.
thing, I'm not bashing being a sweet, selfless, loving
boyfriend/husband, I totally agree that's how a husband should treat
his wife; that IS the way it should be.
Second thing, I AM saying
that girls can over react to this, and guys use it to their

Girls need to understand something: Just because a
guy can write a romantic song, write a romantic poem, or schedule
some romantic date, doesn't mean SQUAT for his character.  To
put it bluntly, this could all just be a well contrived scheme to get
in your pants.  Or, if not to that extreme, to win you over, not
necessarily because he feels the same way about you, but because he's
a guy, and, well, guys want to win the girl. In other words, a guy
doesn't have to feel like he's totally comitted to a girl to write
her a love song, poem, or any of these things, BUT girls tend to
receive such a message: and frequently get their hearts broken. 

Finally, I know this may seem horridly pessimistic.. maybe it
is.  The only thing I'm saying is.. girls, pray and seek God
about guys: just because they can drop a rose at your door, or right
you a cute love song doesn't mean they're the one for you.

HYPE was hype yo!

Tonight was the first HYPE, and it went amazingly well.  I was
really surprised how well God helped me bring this thing together. 
He's so awesome!

We had 21 guys show up, besides myself, and
then a 22nd who came midway because he had to be somewhere the first
half, but he brought sandwhiches
most we had last semester was 17, and tonight, a night that I was kind
of worried I hadn't announced the first HYPE enough, we had way more
than we've ever had.
Not only that, but man... the discussion, and everything, went so well.

It should be cool to see where HYPE's going to go throughout the rest of this semester.

This semester is good.  God is good.  I love... being here, and seeing what God's going to do with me.
Yep :-)

A challenge (for me and you)

Wow, I've never really thought of this, I mean, I have, but not in the depth I just did.

12: 4But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, who was later to betray
him, objected, 5"Why wasn't this perfume sold and the money given to
the poor? It was worth a year's wages.[
6He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was
a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what
was put into it.

tend to look at this passage and look so poorly upon Judas, but don't
we do this all the time? Don't we so often look at a situation and spit
out some memorized response, rather than a heartfelt one?

In other words, we frequently handle situations like a church member, rather than like Jesus.

point is, Christianity is not about having an instruction manual for
every situation in life, but about a consistent Christ like attitude,
one that's always seeing the world through the passion and love of
Jesus, not through empty, ritualistic approaches mindlessly brought
forward from your denomination's regulations.

if we don't approach situations like this, we'll be the ones looking a
desperate church member in the face asking for money saying "you should
have tithed," looking at a pregnant teenager saying "you should have
been at youth service," or heartlessly telling a heartbroken spouse
that their lost family member "had plenty of chances to come to Christ.

other words, if we don't stop ourselves from treating God as teacher
and not Lord, reciting words for religion rather than compassion, it
won't be long before we look ourselves in the mirror and find that we
too, have become, a modern day Judas.

Back to School

Well, I"m back at Lee, it feels pretty good.  Our retreat thingy for hype was pretty sweet, but what I think was cooler was the meeting I just had with the other floor leader and our chaplain about what we're doing in the dorm this semester for HYPE.  It's going to be awesome.  I definitely believe that my prayers for this semester are going to be answered.

That and classes start tomorrow.  Cool, I guess? 
O, and for spring break I'm going to IRELAND!!!!!!
And um... I spent WAY less on books than I thought I'd have to.

I guess that's the important stuff.  God is awesome, looking forward to a year of breakthrough.
Yep :-)

God, is... God

God is getting my attention about something in a manner I don't understand, and quite frankly, it's confusing.
of all the times I've heard people say "I don't understand what God's
doing," or something to that degree, I am experiencing that, probably
to the greatest extent I have in my walk with Him.
It's awesome, sort of, but then again, it's just weird.

God is cool though, because, yeah, He's so big and knows so much more than me!
So even if I'm not hearing Him to well, I still know He knows what He's talking about.
