We're in Gainesville, Florida! Last night we arrived at around 11:30 (P.M.). For some reason, I was really tired (even though I slept a bunch on the trip) so I hit the sack at midnight.

It is now 9:30 (A.M.) and surprisingly no one is doing anything. (I was up at 7 and thought I was late, but no, they were fast asleep!) With an exception to the guys, who were up at 5 this morning to fish with some guys from our old church in Micanopy (they said that it would be awkward if I went :( , but I have a whole week to fish at the beach). 
What we get to do (and I say this un-sarcastically) and I'm really excited about, is shopping in downtown Gainesville. It is quite likely that I won't buy anything, but I have loved just about every downtown that I've been in (with a few exceptions). 

I'm about to do my devotions now. Lately I've been going through Luke and Psalms and really enjoying it! So, what will my amazing God teach me today?

    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
