God isn't safe, but He is good.

Aaron Gillespie Interview from Levi Lusko on Vimeo.

I'm going through a time where God is calling me to make lots of decisions and then follow His lead. And I want to. I know that His will is alway perfect but sometimes it's hard to know what that plan is or how to find it.

Last week the development office girls folded 3000 letters to send out for our monthly mailing. During that time we watch movies or listen to sermons to keep our minds occupied while we do the mundane folding. On Monday, I think, I was watching sermons from Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley. I came upon one by Todd Niswonger, now the head pastor I believe, that talked about how to find God's will. He said something that I know in my head but don't always follow. He said it's not God's will that we should seek. Instead, we should be seeking the face of God and then His will will be evident.

I still have to remind myself constantly to do that. Seek God. Seek the face of Christ. The rest will fall into place.

Prayer Request: Pray that I would remember to seek Christ and pray that when His will is revealed to me that I would follow it instead of going my own way.

Leave a comment and let me know if there is any way that I can pray for you! Also, you can leave a comment and tell me what is going on in your life.

Book Recommendation

I had this big plan to do a Monthaversary blog. But I didn't. Sorry bout it.

It's just been pretty quiet around here. We sleep. We work. We work out. We watch movies. Rinse and repeat.

One thing that is exciting [to me at least] is that I got 2 new books in the mail today!!! I bought The Hunger Games the other day on a whim because Miss Annie Downs [whose blog you should absolutely check out] suggested it.

I consumed [get it? Consumed? Hunger Games?]that thing in 3 days while working full time. Great book. It's kind of Fahrenheit 451 meets Harry Potter, maybe? Hard to explain. But it's only $8 at Walmart so you should just go get it an give it a try. For me?

Maybe next time I'll have something more substantial to say.

Birthday Kidnapping

Brent's birthday is tomorrow so, of course, we decided to throw a little bohop for him. He had no idea. We snuck over to his trailer and banged on his door. He was so pleased to see us [take note of the sarcasm]. So we threw a pillow case over his head, stuffed him in the car, and went to Texas Roadhouse.

It was super fun and we not only got him a balloon birthday hat, but we also made him ride the birthday saddle. Poor boy.

We brought him back to our house for cake and presents and AMAZING birthday cards, which I'm sure he will display in his home.

Awkward Balloon!

Other majorly awesome points in the day included:

1. Seeing a DOUBLE RAINBOW. About 15 or 20 high school boys came outside to marvel at how the double rainbow went "all the way." What does it mean? There were also plenty of fake tears.

2. I took the high school girls to and from volleyball practice. On the way back to the school, they got into a theological discussion. It was really cool to get to talk with them about God stuff!
