Hey guys,
So i promise i have been reading…but havent been writing it out. Which is stupid on my part. I have some time today so i am getting my butt into gear and actually writing it out. Geez where to begin. Im reading Romans 13 today. And yet again it connects to life. You know what i do? I ignore it lol. So thats why im reading it a 2nd time. Let me start out with this. Lately my smallgroup has been challenging me to step out of my box (the comfortable life i choose to stay in). Its funny how things happen, because as soon as i start to do that its like my life goes crazy. I know its a form of spiritual warfare…but it just sucks. I try to get out of my modes and something is trying to keep me in my comfort zone. Recently ive been trying to get out of my self-centeredness. Ive had the last 2 weeks of messages and conversations that get brought up about how i need to get rid of myself and my desires. I even had a ‘God Moment’ where the same message was impressed on my heart. You would think oh i should be all happy about it, but no … im scared to death. It comes down to that im scared to listen to God. The message this week at Sandals was all about that too. God knows me way to good. He knows i HAVE to hear it about 30+ times to get it. My wife will stop at only 3 or 4 times at telling me something lol. You know, i sometimes wish Christianity was easy. In may ways im glad that its not, because if it was up to me … my life would suck. Anywayz ive been talking alot and ill briefly go over what i read. romans 13

1Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.

So im totally doing my taxes right now, and im going nuts. I havent made any money, why should the freaking government take some more money from me. I think i made 23 bucks in August. thats what … 1/2 a tank of gas? Still God wants me to respect our government, even though we are in the midst of a recession. crazy. Next.

8 Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.

Once again, this is what ive am striving for. Love people. Hell i struggle to love my wife 100% of the time. But this is my biggest prayer right now.

Sorry for the lack of insight on this chapter … i get distracted with things that come up every 10 to 20 mins or so lol. plus this comp keeps freezing 😦
