girl scout cookies.

mmmm. i love girl scout cookies. i have some boxes. they will be gone in a few days.

it has been a great last few weeks. DNOW, school, soccer, youth fun, God's Love, Underground Church, and the list goes on. i am way beyond blessed.

i am now coaching track at Hillcrest. i am super pumped about it too.

i ran in a race this past weekend and come in 7th overall and 1st in my age division. i was proud of the way i ran, but i was upset that a 60 year old man beat me....

i get to see my dear friend Laura Register this week. id like to say she was coming to just see me, but she has family here in jackson. it will be a good time.

the Lord has really given me a heart for the youth at CWBC. those kids never cease to amaze me. i always find a good laugh with them.

i love the television series Lost. its getting pretty intense and im excited about it.

thats all for now...

this is all i have wanted to do as of late. just get out and run.

but i guess more or less i just need to get away. and i know that i have been away for quite some time as of late, but i have always had something to do. i need to get away in seclusion and spend some time alone. alone with my Maker.

i dont know why i want to run. i just do. maybe it has to do with the billion things i have going on in my life right now. or maybe it has to do with my weakness, or my brokenness. or maybe even the unknown. or maybe the fact that my heart is telling me that God has something more and i feel that running toward that direction is worth a try. or maybe its just because i need to simply just run.

God has been changing me recently. which, mind you, is a good thing. in my weakness and my strength i am being changed. in my certainty and uncertainty i am being changed. in the perceptions of my past, present, and future, i am being changed. He is reminding me of who He is. i dont know what it is he is pushing me towards, but i need to run in that direction. its completely unknown to me, but i feel that its something that i should do. so i think thats what im gonna do. embrace, and run.

one of my favorite movies is Forest Gump. i didnt know how to sum it up better than the way Forest said it. so here it is:

"That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road. And when I got there, I thought maybe I'd run to the end of town. And when I got there, I thought maybe I'd just run across Greenbow County. And I figured, since I run this far, maybe I'd just run across the great state of Alabama. And that's what I did. I ran clear across Alabama. For no particular reason I just kept on going. I ran clear to the ocean. And when I got there, I figured, since I'd gone this far, I might as well turn around, just keep on going. When I got to another ocean, I figured, since I'd gone this far, I might as well just turn back, keep right on going."

"As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:9

"However, as it is written: 'What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no mind has conceived'--the things God has prepared for those who love him--these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God." 1 Corinthians 2:9-10

"Ask and it will be given you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seek finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him an snake? If you, then though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will you Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!" Matthew 7:7-11

"Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly." James 3:1

"Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? Now eagerly desire the greater gifts." 1 Corinthians 12:27-31

"Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:18-20

"Come, follow me,' Jesus said, 'and I will send you out to fish for people." Mark 1:17
