I was going through my things and found in a notebook a thing I wrote that I may have been planning on writing to put up. I don’t know if I ever actually posted it, but it’s pretty good, and after not seeing it for so long I want to post it now. I think I wrote it last year during camp (which is why it didn’t go straight to the computer, and also probably why it’s so good. I tend to write better when I do it on paper away from a computer screen. Too much distraction on a computer I guess.) Anyway, I’ll just type this up. It’s nice to have something of substance to post without actually having to think it up lol.

Humility


-Humble
a humble quality or state
That’s the definition in the Webster’s New Dictionary of the English language. But what is humility in God’s eyes? God says: “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; Do not merely look out for your own interests, but also for the interests of others.
Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who although, he existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God to be a thing to be grasped, But emptied Himself, taking the from of a bond-servant and being made in the likeness of men.”
Philippians 2:3-7
Originally I was going to only quote the third verse, but Paul just explains it so amazingly well and thoroughly that I just had to keep going.
What we need to realize is that Paul is talking to people like us! And we need to apply these God given instructions to our own lives and attitudes. Simply stated, we need to squash the ego and trash the pride. Because this isn’t just a suggestion, it’s God almighty demanding that we “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself” And that is the kind of humility God wants from every one of us as Christians. Besides that we have a testimony to the world. We need to show what real Christians are made of and be “intent on one purpose”. And that purpose is to further the christian cause and ultimately God’s great plans and his desires for us to grow in his word and teachings. And thus allow the potter to form our lives like soft clay. Give into God today! And let him take control. As you follow the commands that God has plainly given us.

Yessiree, it’s the Saturday after WoW week. It was completely and amazingly fun this week. The only problem with it is that now I’m going to have to adjust to not having a schedule of one thing to the next right after each other throughout the days. When I first came and started WoW week I felt like I should be doing a class or something, and so doing a whole week of welcome felt, well it just felt kind of weird. But the problem is now, I’m going to have to go through a whole different kind of adjustment and getting used to having classes. *Sigh* Isn’t life lovely lol.
But I’m going to be happy getting into classes. I’ve got my first classes on Monday. Those will be music theory, biblical fundamentals, US government, and collegiete singers (sp I know).
I also start work at the computer center (which I was very happy about getting a job at). That’s going to be fun. Well, my friend Jim is here so I’m gonna go now.

Till next post.

Well, today and yesterday actually.
Yesterday
We got to go to the beach for a few hours and have dinner there. That was incredibly fun. I got to go skidboarding, which is where you have this roundish, pointed board and you wait until the wave is going out and then you run and drop the board and jump on and skid across the retreating wave really fast. It’s amazingly fun. I wiped out quite a few times, that was though, as I told a few people, half the fun when you’d get a really cool wipeout. That would usually happen when you went pretty far and then a wave came and you hit it coming in. Then you’d either ride over it and then stop or totally flip off and get soaked lol.
Some people did some really great sand sculptures too while we were there. There was a really super looking horse lying down which they called “monty lying down” since the mascot is a horse named monty.
There was also a really cool living room. Yes, a living room, they had a full sized couch carved into the ground with a ditch where you put your feet so you could actually sit down on the nearly real looking cushions. Then there was one more worth mentioning that was a face that was really nice looking and had a funny lip-sticking-out look on it.
Today
I went to “The Master’s Distinctives” that I get to go to every morning, which is actually basically a chapel time where we get to sing worship songs. And while I’m thinking about it I need to mention that their band is really good, and really sweet sounding. Then we had a seminar called “new student success seminar” and that was basically another thing where he talked about us not being lazy and remembering to plan and go to bed at the right time and other stuff like that. Then we had lunch which was number 1 of what has made this day really awesome. The first reason that made my day great was that we had lasagna and that’s like my #2 favorite (raviolis is my first in case you were wondering) and we also had rice krispy treats that were really good. Then the #2 thing that made my day was that as I was walking around a car was pulling out from the parking lot next to me and the guy that kind of manages the computer center leaned over the driver to hey to me as they drove by. So that was really sweet, then later another guy that worked at the computer center said hi to me. Then the #3 thing that made my day was I finally got my mailbox open, that was awesome. I got my new Visa card, and then I got my contacts. Next the #4 thing was that as I sat in our computer orientation class with my computer (which I was happy that they let me have since I was gonna be pretty bored in that since I pretty much had everything figured out) I checked my e-mail and that same guy that is the manager of the computer center sent me an e-mail that seemed to say that as soon as the job fair rolls around tomorrow that they’ll give me a job there right off.

Well, I can’t think of anything else to post except you should check out this podcast they’re making for every day of this WOW week. You can check this out at This here link .
Thanks to Cliff, my new buddy here at TMC for the link.

Till next post.

Well I don’t have really any time to blog but I’ll say this: I went and had a talk with this guy in the computer department and although I have to wait until friday to actually get a student-employment job it really sounds like they are totally ready to hire me. I’m gonna look around at some other jobs too just in case, but it’s looking really good and I really hope I get into that job.
Pray for me, I’m having fun, but there’s work ahead and lots of it just in case you want a little too 🙂

Till next post.

(oh, and a definition for those of you who play Euchre, I saw this on my google homepage and thought you’d like seeing it)

renege: to go back on a promise or commitment.

I’m gonna have to start getting used to having internet so fast I click and a page just appears with virtually no waiting. Yep, I’m at TMC now.
I really gotta go to bed now, but I just wanted to make a quick post.
When I got here I was excited because I got the dorm I wanted. Then we went up to see the dorm room I got. We went and found out that I got to be in the most recently remodeled room. This was way better than I expected, it’s really nice because everything’s new and besides that there’s central airconditioning for this dorm room itself. I’m getting used to having the temperature kind of low since I can’t figure out how to change the thermostat. Also, the reason my roomates can’t figure it out either is because I don’t have any! Not really, but I won’t have any for a week. This week is the WoW, week of welcome for those of you who didn’t read Jeremiah’s comment. That’s the week for all of the first timers here at master’s. The reason I don’t have any roomates though is because I’m the only freshman in a dorm room of 5 which is pretty neat (I think it is) but weird because I have the whole thing to myself for a week. One thing that felt a little weird to me was having this week of welcome. While it’s really really fun, I felt like I should be learning something or something and having more free time. I think this Wow week is to keep freshmen busy so they don’t get homesick, but I found it kind of strange when I was expecting more time to go places I felt like going and taking classes and stuff. I don’t know maybe I’m just weird for wanting to take classes right away lol, I guess it’s just the homeschooler in me. Anyway, I did get to go to John MacArthur’s church today which was really fun. He’s a great pastor and I think I’m going to have to go to his church for a while. I didn’t think I’d like it at first because it’s such a humongous church (like 3-7 thousand) but I really liked the music at first (I guess that has something to do with the fact that they have a little orchestra and a huge choir right there for the singing of hymns in the Sunday service), but then also I liked our “Sunday school” which was actually “college group”. That was fun, both messages we heared were really really good and I kept my classroom urge satisfied by taking notes in the 1st service and then at the night service. What’s cool also is that they give you a bulliten for that day and it has all the songs your going to sing (mostly) and then a really nice area for taking notes that is made of really nice writing paper and has a place to write the main text and the title of the sermon. They also give you one of these for the night service which is really sweet and a nice way to take and keep your notes. I’m gonna like getting these little things every Sunday 🙂 Well I have a really busy day tomorrow and I gotta go spend some time under them sheets so I’m gonna hit the shower and go to bed.

Till next post.
