Good Things #5

Healing!  Letters to my future spouse!  Native American orphanages!  They’re all relaxing here, in this installment of Good Things🙂

GOOD SCRIPTURE

Job 26:7-14

He stretches out the north over empty space;

He hangs the earth on nothing.

He binds up the water in His thick clouds,

Yet the clouds are not broken under it.

He covers the face of His throne,

And spreads His cloud over it.

He drew a circular horizon on the face of the waters,

At the boundary of light and darkness.

The pillars of heaven tremble,

And are astonished at His rebuke.

He stirs up the sea with His power,

And by His understanding He breaks up the storm.

By His Spirit He adorned the heavens;

His hand pierced the fleeing serpent.

Indeed these are the mere edges of His ways,

And how small a whisper we hear of Him!

GOOD PICTURE

Aboriginal dance in Australia.

I LOVE when people embrace the heritage God gave them!  It’s a form of worship – walking in the fullness of who you are.  I’m not saying go out and immerse yourself in “endless genealogies” (1 Timothy 1:4), but never be ashamed of where God has placed you.  HE writes our history, and future – and He places us within certain cultures, regions, ethnicities, etc. for HIS glory!

GOOD SONG

Preashea Hilliard: “Oh How We Love You”

GOOD VIDEO

Paralyzed vocal chords HEALED!

Blindness HEALED!

Don’t let anyone tell you that Christ doesn’t still work miracles.  He healed EVERYONE who asked for healing…check His record and grow in faith!

GOOD BLOGS

Corey Copeland: Mad To Love

Cory Copeland is a rare find in the blog-overrun world, he has the perfect balance of wit, relevance, and the Bible.  Mad to Love is one of my favorite blogs, and, if you’re in the mood for some romantic musings, check out his other blog: To My Future Spouse.  Men and women write notes and/or letters to their future spouse…it’s genius really, keeping the idea of marriage in everyone’s mind – fighting societies lax standards!

Soul Caffeine: Why Christians Should Never Marry Non-Christians

This is big.  I love it.  As one who formerly had a relationship with a non-Christian, I cannot stress enough the importance of being equally yoked.  DO NOT PLAY WITH FIRE, you cannot maintain a healthy relationship with Christ while maintaining a healthy relationship with someone who is not of the faith.

GOOD MINISTRY

Good-Goers is a mission based organization that Rachel and I want to get involved in (we’re hoping to be placed at a Native American orphanage).  Everyone isn’t called to do traveling missions, some people are destined to reach those in immediate surroundings.  As always, pray before you invest your life in a ministry (count up the cost – Luke 14:28-32).  However, if you are interested in out-of-area missions, I encourage you to check out good-goers.com.
