Ok, girlz -- before I start on this post, I'd just like to say -- thx to all you girlz, who prayed for me and my family while we away, and also -- for praying that I'll see Ally. Because, guess what-- she and her family had been camping for like, 2 weeks, and so I found that out when we got to the place we used to live. So, I'm like disapointed, sure. But I live. But today, guess what -- she came back, and we got to hang out. Awesome!
Anyway...on the three hour drive back to our home, which we drove tonight, I decided to do something that had actually never occured to me before -- instead of being bored, I decided to talk to God. I know, sounds pretty normal, right? But really -- it has seriously not occured to me to do that before. So I did. And, looking out the car window, at the night sky, with all the stars -- I sung the lines over and over -- My redeemer lives. You know, the song that goes 'my reseemer lives, dadada, my redeemer lives, dadada. Yeah, that one. I stared at God's creation, repeating that same line over and over.
The last two or three days, I re-read the 'Nama Beach high books, by Nancy Rue. The main character, Laura Duffy -- is so amazing. I won't give anything away, but what Duffy, as her friends call her -- what happens to her, is that when God is telling her to do something, or telling her something -- she hears a whisper, or she feels this silk rope, pulling her, telling her what God wants her to do. Pretty awesome, huh? Well, that's what I want. I want a really great realationship with God, just like Laura did. And I'm going to focus my life completely on God, telling Him everything...
Oh, and girlz -- what do you think of this this idea? For our devotion times, we could do it on the 'Nama Beach High books. Please comment if you think this is a good idea, because there is so much we can get out of these books, stuff I can only begin to understand if I was doing it with friends, like you girlz.
I'll be praying for each of you,
