Do What Jesus Freakin Said!

Sandals

So this is the 2nd time I’m writing this…thank you Mr. Computer for randomly decided to shut down when I’m just finishing. I’m not bitter or anything….LOL. Na God probably wanted me to get this in my head more or something. Sorry I haven’t blogged much about sandals lately. I’ve been too busy….way too busy. Even for my standards. Which sucks. I missed blogging the last 3 weeks of remix, so I definitely recommend going to the Sandals Website and check out the messages…they will rock your face off! Church this week was awesome. Everything was awesome. PRD did the dj’ing for this week and also was freaking amazing during worship too. If you weren’t there…you missed out.

PRD

This week is about Forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. I’ve struggled with this off and on through my life. Does he forgive everything? How can I forgive others? What we need to do when we pray is constantly remind ourselves of how much we have been forgiven. What does that mean? We have to know every single thing we did wrong? No what it means is we need to know what we have been forgiven from…ourselves. God has taken our sins and threw them as far as the east is from the west (Ps 103:12). Jesus did not just die for our past sins, He died for our present and future ones to. But what we do need to do is pray, and ask God and others if there is anything we must confess to Him. I know I can be so blind to the things I do wrong. Through God and others I can accurately see what is wrong in my life and how to fix them. We must truly ask forgiveness and seek healing, not use God as a free pass to sinning. The thing is Jesus said we must give grace and forgiveness or we will not receive it (Matt6:14-15). What’s that to me? The ability to extend grace and forgiveness to others plays a direct role in how powerful and effective our prayers are. Jesus tells us we can pray for anything but if we are holding a grudge against someone we must forgive them first before He will even begin to listen to us. Which is soooooooo hard. Pastor Matt gave an example from a clip from Grey’s Anatomy (a show I’ve never really watched). In the show this girl had been cheated on by her boyfriend and she decides to forgive him and help him in his time of need. The dude asks her why are you doing this? She replies, “because Jesus freaking did it!” We can write, sing, or say all we want to forgive others, but are we really doing it? Jesus tells us we HAVE to forgive others, but we don’t HAVE to let them keep hurting us. Why? Because as a Christian, we must forgive because Jesus freaking did it! Even Peter in the Bible asked Jesus, how many times we need to forgive. Jesus replied, “seventy times seven!” (Matt 18:21-22). I have a hard time after one! Pastor Matt brought up this point. Wouldn’t it be convenient if we only had to forgive once? So after the person hurt us or cut us off on the road the first time, the second time we can get pissed! The thing is Jesus isn’t just throwing some arbitrary number out. He’s saying we should keep forgiving over and over again! Why? Because how many times do we need to be forgiven by God? (I’m sure I’m sure I’ve gone WAY over 490 times!) How do we forgive like this?
1. Be clear about the injury and what happened
2. Share the hurt with your small group (others)
3. Make a commitment to submit to Jesus
4. Understand what biblical forgiviness is NOT
a. saying what happened was right
b. having to stay in a relationship
c. having to save or protect the person who hurt you
5. Get Biblical perspective – we are all broken people
6. Bless those who curse. Pray for those who hurt you (Luke 6:28)
7. Trust God with your anger and let Him judge
8. Move on.

What we need to do is do what Jesus freakin Said!

Me and Michelle

So yeah, this is how amazing my girl is. Saturday morning I was lying in bed waiting for her to call and wake me up. It was the first Saturday in about….2 months I’ve slept in and so I was enjoying it. I actually requested it off for 2 reasons.
1. Because its spring break!! And I need to rest.
2. I was doing Sound and Production for a wedding that day and it was in the normal time I would work anyway.
Back to my story, I was laying there waiting to receive a phone call, and my door opens. My first thought was…ugh I don’t want to get up GO AWAY! All of a sudden Michelle comes running in my room and jumps on me. For those who know me when I wake up….it takes a while to get me going so at first I had no idea what was happening. I looked at her and all that came out was…..what?? Then I started thinking again….wait WHAT? Why are you here? Oh I’m dreaming…Around the third time when I thought what??? Are you really here? Did I get it! lol. Michelle went with me to the wedding that day and the rest of the day was at Disneyland! What a day! Guys be jealous…I have an amazing girl.

TMNT

So….for those who haven’t seen it! TMNT rocked my face off! Maybe it’s because I’m a huge Ninja Turtles fan, but I really enjoyed the movie. I went with a bunch of people from Sandals, and a few of the people didn’t like it…which makes me sad. I thought the CG was done really well; story was pretty cool, and had some good humor. Supposedly Michelle was going to see it….but DIDN’T~! Ill explains when I get pictures. heheheheh. So I say check out TMNT if you haven’t yet…its awesome.

Captain Voges

Ok….so I’m still alive. Sort of. For the last week I’ve been only living for homework. Which means i feel like i have an IV coming out of me and instead of stuff coming in…homework is coming out of my vines. Sounds weird. lol Well i have a point to all of this. Anywayz. I’m behind on a bunch of stuff and i wanted to let people know that I’m still alive! So is my unique sense of strangeness and uniqueness (which Michelle labels silliness). I have officially decided to dress up as Jack Sparrow for the coming Pirates 3: At Worlds End. Now not much is known about this upcoming movie other than its release date. I’m sure your asking, is that really necessary? The answer is yes! Why? Because I spent a bunch of money on the costume and I’m getting all the use out of it as I can! Plus, who can admit to never wanting to be a pirate? Exactly.

PS the trailer is coming out tomorrow~!
