Here’s some of the truths I decided to write down while listening to proverbs 11-20
These are paraphrased. I wrote down the ones that I thought I might forget or are very important to me in the things that I’m going through.

• By knowledge the righteous are saved.
• He who is trustworthy keeps a thing covered.
• He who hates striking hands in pledge is secure.
• Be assured the evil will not go unpunished.
• One gives freely but grows all the richer.
• Evil comes to him who searches it.
• Whoever captures souls is righteous.
• Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge.
• An excellent wife is like the crown of a husband.
• A man is commended according to his good sense.
• Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast.
• He who follows worthless pursuits lacks sense.
• The work of a man’s hand comes back to him.
• Those who plan peace have joy.
• Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord.
• The hand of the diligent will rule.
• The slothful will be put to forced labor.
• Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word encourages him.
• By insolence comes nothing but strife.
• Good sense wins favor.
• Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise.
• Whoever walks in uprightness fears the Lord.
• You get what you sow.
• The evil bow down before the good.
• Whoever despises his neighbor is a sinner.
• Whoever presses the poor insults his maker.
• The helper of the poor is blessed.
• A soft answer turns away wrath.
• The eyes of the Lord are in every place watching the good and the bad.
• Whoever ignores instruction despises himself.
• A whisperer separates close friends.
• The lot is cast into the lap, but every decision is from the Lord. (speaking of which, Have you ever tried praying and then using dice to decide what to do when you are feeling awfully indecisive?)

That’s all for now.

I have come to believe that to go to the library some have the belief that you are not allowed to wear normal clothes. To enter this vast sea of printed information you must find the most bizarre clothes or outfit you have and don it before coming here. A girl just walked past me with a purple skirt, stripey black and white knee socks, an unzipped hoody and a beany hat on. There’s plenty more weird people too, lol. Anoher thing. I think all the weirdest people go to work or hang out at our King Soopers. It must be the best hangout to the strangest in our community. Anyway, if you’re curious what’s going on…
I’m sitting in the library getting started on an informational speech that’s due Monday. I’m actually in Denver now after taking a long road trip with my buddy from camp Danny who was visiting Master’s because he is probably coming to the school next semester. I got back to Denver on wednesday and immediately went into a frenzy of doing homework. Well, that’s enough writing on here. I shall go back to writing my informational speech and watching weird people do what weird people do in libraries.

Till next post.

Well I’m sitting here in a motel 8 wasting away my night and my laptop battery listening to the Psalms.
This week I have tons of homework to plow through before spring break is over. I have 40% of Psalms read, write a synthesis paper, read from to different commentaries, and study for a mid term.
All for ONE class!!
Then I have two quizzes to get ready for, for two other classes. I also want to get a book read for New Testament survey 1.
We’ll see how that goes… I don’t know about that.
I also have to prepare an information speech for monday. That’ll probably prove to be the most difficult since I seem to have trouble doing well on speech preperation.
God’s grace abounds. I pray that he’ll give me grace to finish all this homework.
I’ll be home this week by Tuesday, and back in LA again by Saturday. Tomorrow I’m going to visit Azuza Pacific because the guy I’m going back with is visiting there before him, his grandma, and me go back to Grand Junction and I get to go home.

Till next post.

I was just listening to a John Reuben song and it sounded like it was talking about the concept Jesus talks about in Matthew 10:39.
I had never really understood what Jesus siad in this verse: “He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.”

In the song Reuben says something like: if you live your life for things that don’t really matter in the end and you die. Then really you had nothing all along.

It made me realize what Jesus meant. If you live your life to the ‘fullest’ as some people call it. Living for yourself and wasting your time. You may have lots of fun, but in the end you will lose your life. But whoever leaves his life to serve others and make the name of Christ great, then for losing your life at death you will have saved it.

It was kind of cool how it just clicked in my mind.

And I’m sitting here doing nothing but listening to the book of Job and talking to Deric. Job has (as of now) become my favorite book of the Bible. It’s just so cool. Job is awesome and where in the rest of the Bible can you get such a long dialogue of wisdom straight from the mouth of God?? It’s just amazing.
Well, I should get to bed. I’m happy that I finished Esther and I’m getting 10 chapters of Job finished. I have tons to finish before Thursday. That’s gonna be crazy. It’s gonna be interesting to see what grade I get on my Econ test I took Friday (yesterday). It was pretty hard, I found myself behind throughout the time. Dr. Mackey gives us about 50 minutes and 50 questions which is really annoying since we need to think about most of the questions because of the weird confusing wording. I studied for it. I suppose I could’ve studied more, but there’s always more that you can do, and never an end really.
Anyway, enough rambling I should go to bed.
Read Job, it’s cool!

Till next post.
