"But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all: yet let him remember the days of darkness;for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity. Rejoice, oh young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth,and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgement. Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity." ~Ecclesiastes 11:8-10
i had most of the day to myself which was pretty relaxing. i went to starbucks for a couple hours and read Francis Turretin on Holy Scriptures. [most conversations ive had with non christians (even some "christians") have led back to the authority of scripture. they all think that because it was given to fallible men, then it must be fallible. or that some group of early christians got together and wrote a book and called it the word of God and then gave it to the world, who just caved in and believed it. turns out its not like that at all. just goes to show you how ignorant we are, thinking that all things began the day we were born and that history never happened. the power of God despite man is awesome, how He has preserved His word through careless mistakes and malicious intents to pervert scripture. that the Bible i read today, which is just a derivative of the original Bible, can be so powerful and yet, how much more so are the very words directly dictated by the Holy Spirit. i cant even imagine...]
later this evening i went and had a visit with the "family" for my brothers birthday. *rolls eyes and sighs*
if you think of it, please pray for me and for a conversation i need to have with my mom soon. i keep putting it off cause im a weenie.
ah, anyways, so thats life for today.
i want to let all of you know that i value you very much >:D<
thanks be to God for the gift of fellowship and counsel :)
