Treasure Hunt

Posted on Updated on

The date is December 20, 2014 was a fun day to be able to help out at stable in the strand. Which is a place where the entire family could come and walk through the land of Bethlehem. To see where Jesus walked and grew up. Later that night at the campus Tyrone ask me if I wanted to go with him treasure hunting. What you do is you pray to God and ask who do you want us to pray for Lord. So before we left the campus tyrone & I prayed and ask God who he would like for us to go too. At the moment I had my toothpaste with me which is a whole other story. I told Tyrone I would meet him back at the cafe I was going to put my toothpaste back in my room. But he had told me to pray and ask God during that time to ask God for a specific thing a person was wearing or holding. The only thing that was in my thought at that time was a person holding a plastic bag. So when I met up with Tyrone he ask me if I got anything I said well I got a person carrying a bag. And tyrone said he got blue shorts and white shirt. Tyrone also had ask me what the first number that come up to mind. I say 7 he came up with 11. Then we both thought of 7/11. Which there was no 7/11 but there is night owl which is consider to a 7/11. So when we did leave the campus we headed to night owl. As Tyrone and I were across from night owl we saw some of the ywam student chatting so we thought we should join them. As we were chatting and just having a good time this man in a white shirt, blue shorts, carrying a bag, and even walk towards us and said something about 7/11. Tyrone and I knew this was the man that fit the description. Who God wanted us to pray for which was a great blessing to witness. A lot of the time we hear stories like this from others. But when it’s your own story no one could tell you other wise because you experience it for your self. And truly know that Jesus is Lord.

Throwback Thursday 2014

Posted on Updated on

Night on the Pacific link. First night sleeping on the ship wasn’t that bad. slept in the lounge with the other dts students. Will be here another night before we head out to our trekking accommodation. It’s to early to know the student well enough. I’m just getting to know the students by name. I feel jellylike at this time being on the ship while it rocks the lower deck back and forth in the ocean water. What could I say the ship alone is blowing my mind living on it for a couple of days. It brings history to life how people sailed days to transport goods from one land to another . And how much I take for granted and how good we have it now. If I need to buy food I could just drive to the market and buy what I need. I don’t sail for days so I may have food to eat or medical treatment to cure my sickness. We don’t always see the work of people did behind the scenes. In order for the goods to reach our markets. So when you feel a bit inpatient next time. Just remember people didn’t have it as good as we do now or as fast.

“What lesson did I Learn & What I need to work on”

Posted on Updated on

I don’t learn, no I don’t learn cause of pride. That is one thing I have to improve on and understand to walk in humility. Arrogance is like a thief at night that robs you from learning. I don’t want to become an unteachable man. I’ve lost this battle and in addition to it I must write a three page paper. “ignorant pride I am superior to you highly/lowly pride I don’t count you do have worth. Don’t think highly or lowly. Humility is a correct assessment (truth).” “help me out, don’t let me down I could learn from you, I could learn from you.”

Improve my listening, if I was sitting attentively I would not be in this situation. Comprehend what the message is first then wait till the message has come across and the person is finished talking. Once the person is finish, I have the ok to respond. This is one habit I know I have to work on. Not to cut people off while they are talking. Its not that my opinion is more important then what they might be saying, I just don’t want to lose my thought. However it is disrespectful when I talk over some one. This is something that has been brought to my attention many times. To write down my thought and comment back once that opportunity is open. Im not saying not to talk. Im saying to talk when it is my time to talk.

I am grateful that I am still here in YWAM. One thing that I’m grateful is confessing that I’m not so great with boundaries. Boundaries is something I to have to work on. Now that I know about boundaries I must apply it in to my life. Example respecting others when I speak, think, or act? Am I being loving or selfish. Im not saying dong it once makes me an expert. Yet put into use in my daily life. I must not waste my words, just say ok im wrong. I believe there is a time to pick up the white flag and surrender. Know that I been wrong, allow another to teach me. In this case I Mr. Rodriugez give consent unto instructor to teach me in what I must learn and I am willing to submit to his teaching.

Ive become aware that I could become dubious at times. This is not a good thing. The definition of Dubious, wavering or hesitating in opinion, inclined to doubt. That sums up the word, now who want to be around some one that is not completely honest, safe, or reliable. I no for sure I don’t. so what I could do is the opposite. Put it in to practice and be honest, reliable, and show others that I am trustworthy. I will also say the cause for me still being here is the tribe of believers. Granting leaders to educate myself not just letting any one show, yet those who are mature in the faith. That I may be wise and able to spot them.

I found out I enjoy working for people who I believe what they believe. Show up and feel apart of something bigger then yourself. One could go much further if we go as a team then on my own. Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world. Since one of my strengths is learner I enjoy focusing on the technical skill, which is why I’m here and now that I could always grow.

Deal with my lack of peace!

Posted on Updated on

Inspiration or desperation two ways people change. What is the THING that is robbing ones peace. This a moment to think out of the box. One thing that comes to mind is this passage.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” John‬ ‭10:10‬ ‭ESV‬‬

It’s one own responsibility to identify the riddle. We have to be aware of what the issue is before us. At this moment we are talking about confrontation. By doing the confronting you have brought the issue to the light. When confronting be specific. Yet if they blow you off. Key here is some one to take responsibility if the other person is not willing to take the responsibility tells you that there not safe. Operate from a place of conviction. When people say I’m confused means I know what to do but I don’t want to do it. If Repent move towards them If don’t repent put up a boundary. Unsafe person don’t admit what there doing. repentance is a change of mind that results in a change of action. Speak the truth in love.

“Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out,”Acts 3:19 ESV

Bullying

Posted on Updated on

Intimidation is a enjoyable read not only is it helpful. The definition of intimidation is to make timid; fill with fear. Also showing the reader not being a attitude issue yet a spirit problem. Reading this book really did have great insight. It does say how intimidation could change your Focus in a instance. For example the root of intimidation is fear and fear cause people to focus on themselves. “The root of fear and intimidation is the love of self. Where there is fear there is no peace.”

Perfect love casts out fear because love puts the focus on God and others and denies itself (1 John 4:18).

Outer Limits

Posted on Updated on

This book has good resources that I could use for self-control and knowing my limits. What I mean by that is that if I don’t know how to manage my own food intake through the day I could be eating more than I need. Another way could be how much junk food I consume through the day. So we have to know when to say yes or no during this life time. This book also has stories that I could relate to. It also puts you in a scenario or gives a story to understand from a different perspective. It helps you to reflect and see what areas need to improve. You start to see what you might be lacking. It helps you to start setting goals to improve those things. So I ask you what is the one thing you have to improve? Aim for the target and for fulfill it.

I can be a people pleaser at times by always saying yes to people. Which people will start to use that as their advantage. Then you’ll be nothing more but doormat to them. And that my friends is not a good place to be at. I encourage you to say no to people and take control of your life.

TV watching, when to stop watching tv? Our mind becomes mush. When we feed it to much junk. The same way there’s junk food for your body. There is junk food for your brain. I’m not saying it’s bad. Yes we all need some entertainment in our life time to time. Yet just remember don’t let it be something that consumes your every day life.

Compulsive buying is another bad habit. So when there’s a product you see and you want to buy it. Are you able to control your spending habits. Or do you just go ahead and buy. So managing money would be another concept why this book is good.

There has been times when I had no job or anything to do. I would sit at home and watch netflix most of the day. Watching movies, shows, and documentaries. I would have to stop myself and go out with friends or family. Even read a book so I could be a bit more productive instead of just watching TV all day.

I personally agree this is helpful. I was unable to find something I disagree on. As I am alive in this planet. I believe there’s so much more I have to develop in my life. It’s something I could use while I’m here on earth. It helps me to be aware of others boundaries as well as my own. I would recommend this book on boundaries to family and friends.
