Day 2 (morning) -    "Only one life, twill soon be past, only what's done for Christ will last" 
 
And I missed it by a mile :(. As I walked outside, I thought it was raining, but no, it was just the sprinkler system. And they smell like boiled eggs.
So here I am am again, sitting on the big, nice, screened-in front porch (as the sprinklers are wildy spritzing beside, behind, and in front of me) :) ) and once again, everyone's aslee. Different surroundings, same situation, and I believe it'll probably happen all week (Oh, like now. Everyone is officially asleep. And here I am typing away). Which is fine with me :) I'll be able to just be still and get away from the slight craziness. Super, ultra fun, but still a bit crazy.

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved; God will help her when the morning dawns. The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; He utters His voice, the earth melts. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Come, behold the works of the LORD, how He has brought desolation on the earth. He makes wars cease to end the earth; He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; He burns the chariots with fire. 'Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be axalted in the earth!' The LORD of hosts is with us, the God of Jacob is our fortress." Psalm 46

    My Jesus, I beg You that I would become worthy enough to suffer for You wonderful name!

    "Then they left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonor for the Name" Acts 5:41

    "Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I  am weak, then I am stong." 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

    "There is creation and Creator, nothing more. And creation gets all its meaning and purpose from God." John Piper-don't waste your life 

    "Life is wasted when we do not live for the glory of God. And I mean ALL of life. It's all for His glory. That's why the Bible gets down to eatting and drinking. "Whether you eat, or drink, or whatsoever you do, do ALL TO THE GLORY OF GOD" We waste our lives when we do not weave God into our eatting and drinking and every other part by enjoying and displaying Him." 
    John Piper- don't waste your life


    "Let worship be the heart of mission's aim

    To see the nations recognize Your name
    'Til every tribe and tongue voices Your praise
    Send us out
    You should be the praise of every toungue
    You should be the joy of every heart
    But until the fullness of Your kingdom comes
    Until that final revelation dawns
    Send us out
