New Camera = Pictures!

Well, I finally bought myself a camera. It's a Fujifilm FinePix F60fd. Since I haven't taken too many pictures with it yet, they are all random. Enjoy! :D

Growing In Faith

Hello Everyone! I was reading in 2 Peter yesterday, and found a portion I really liked. It’s in Chapter 1:5-11. In my Bible they titled this section “Character Qualities To Develop In Life”. Here they are:  

5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6 and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; 7 and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.  
8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  
9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. 10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:  
11 for so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. 

We must be diligent in our pursuit of growth. I know I need to work on being more patient. I can have a problem with getting frustrated when people are slow or something. It says to add godliness onto that; and then brotherly kindness. And then love. It says if you have all of these things then you will NOT be unfruitful in the knowledge of Christ. In verse 10, making sure of our calling and election. Peter said that if we we do all these things, we will NEVER fail! If we have faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love, we don't leave much room for failure. So I'm asking the Lord to help me to become these things, so that I may have a more intimate relationship with Him, and so that I will never fail :D

Press On Towards The Goal!

In Christ,

The Beattitudes

Hello! I was reading in the book of Matthew the other day and the first ten or so verses of The Sermon On the Mount caught my attention. They really convicted me to fall under the "blessed" category. Again I am pressed for time, but I will write a longer post soon, I promise :D

3Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

5Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

6Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

7Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

8Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

9Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

10Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

God Bless You All!!!!!!!!!!!
