Self-Assesment

I'm making changes. A few years ago I was peaceful and cool. Lately I've become arguementive and pissed off. I've always been a scrapper and "in your face" type person. "Aggressive" if you will. If I can always blame something else other than my own weakness, I can say that the constant smack talk in the race forum made my love for winning made me more aggressive. I think that I might have offended a few people or maybe even lost my Christianity. If I have I apologize.


I've also noticed alot of junk filling my head and I think it's because I've been filling my head with alot of "junk" So I'm on a mission to eradicate the secular music I like to listen to 90% of the time.

But along the way, I've also been much more strengthened in my walk with God. (I don't know how, really. Maybe because I still love to go to Church and I still learn more.) Anyway, I realize now that I don't KNOW IT ALL. I realize that not everything that happens in life can be explained w/ scripture but, somehow that is alright, with me. I have peace knowing that God is sovreign. I know it. HIS way is still the BEST way.

So. Just keep me in your prayers. One of the kids in my youth group lost her mother last week. She is going to the 8th grade this year. Her dad commited suicide when she was about 3yrs old. So pray for her also. The funeral is tomorrow.

Humility opens the door to grace. I have to constantly check myself, especialy watching for anger. When I'm mad I know somethings scaring me. I have to give that fear to God, take my hands off the wheel and quit trying to control everything. I made a decision that my lifes not my business anymore, and that God truly is in control and I trust him. Good luck, you're in my prayers

So True, having faith in Jesus and being able to turn our problems and cares over to him is hard, we are praying for you and the Family.

i'll be praying for you both JC.

On a side note, I highly recommend Jeremy Camp as a Christian Artist. I have two of his CDs and they are excellent.

You will be in my prayers as well.

I have cut out pretty much all secular music in my listening. I have found 89.7 to be an awesome station (if you can get reception). When at work there are several internet stations I listen to. I don't know what kind of secular music you listen to, but there is a Christian genre that matches. It amazes me, when I listened to secular music, I never "listened" to the words. I even sang along sometimes without even knowing what I was saying, just liked the music. Now I hear just about every word and it "speaks" to me. Sorry to rant, just know where you are coming from. God bless!
