I'm glad God is the guy who's God. Man, if it had been anyone else, we'd all be so screwed. Only God would forgive me and love me in spite of all the stupid and hypocritical things I do.
I really like God. I like when I dream about God. I had a dream about him last night. I dreamed I was back in Biological Anthropology with Dr. Plavcan (no!!) and we were told to do this like weird dance around the room chant thing... Dustin was in the dream, that's always good, I certainly needed his companionship. And Justin Keogh was there too. Anyway, the entire class left at one point except for like 20 of us and we're the ones who had to do the chant. It wasn't that big a deal so I participated. Then Plavcan said something about God not existing with some theoretical proof or something and said, "If you don't agree with that, stand up and tell me how."
Now usually in these dreams, I stand up and start sharing the gospel with everyone. And its always amazing. Last night, I stood up and found myself saying, "I'm leaving, I just hate politics, ya know?"
And thats how I'm feeling right now. Like I can't stand up. Like I'm starting to waiver. IBut that's one of the other cool things about God, he doesn't let us waiver too much. It's not the kind of waiver like I'm losing faith or anything-- I've just "fallen off the pedestal, landed upon the dirty floor". I've been reading Desiring God by John Piper and one thing that's been an encouragement to me is just his chapter on scripture. How scripture is the "kindling of fire of joy" (probably misquoted here). I want to start spending more time in the scripture. I've been reading through Psalms and its been really cool. Gosh there is so much to go into. Just about how God is shaping me right now.
This entry is just gonna have to be too short. God is doing too much. He's teaching me about theology and love all at the same time, grace and wrath, submitting my will, all sorts of things I'd like to get into now. But I'm ending this for the time being. I am at work. I've got reports to run.
I'll sum it up with this. "The Word of God well understood and religiously obeyed is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. We must not select a few favourite passages to the exclusion of others. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian."- A.W. Tozer
That includes 2 Cor 6:14.
