any takers....

i have a '04 Chevy Tahoe, Z71 for sale. all done up. if you're interested please comment or get a hold of me.

aside from that, i am having healthcare issues. as in who do i go with? does anyone out there have Blue Cross/ Blue Shield? i'm in the market for a good coverage provider.

you never really see the twists and turns from the starting line do you? it reminds me of this story:

there was a man who loved to run. he loved to run races that took him through rough terrain, wooded areas, rocky places, steep hills, loose dirt. these were difficult races. here's the catch though.

the man was blind.

that's right. he was blind and he had to have someone lead him through the race, start to finish. over the winding, steep, rocky, wooded areas. he was lead around danger, over stumbling stones, past fallen trees. he was in the race, but didn't know where it was going to take him and he couldn't see the twists and turns that were in store for him.

~this is like us. we are in a race that takes us all over the place. over rocky areas, wooded paths, even over smooth roads. but we can't always see what's next. we're blind people running a difficult race. we need a guide. luckily, we have Jesus Christ, the best guide there is. i know that he's holding my hand right now saying "watch our for that stone. heads up, we're going down a hill, there is some loose gravel." He loves me and won't let me stay down if i fall. i'm glad He's on my side.

My Utmost for His Highest Daily Devotional

My Utmost for His Highest Daily Devotional

We know that all things work together for good to those who love God . . .
—Romans 8:28

"It is only a faithful person who truly believes that God sovereignly controls his circumstances. We take our circumstances for granted, saying God is in control, but not really believing it. We act as if the things that happen were completely controlled by people. To be faithful in every circumstance means that we have only one loyalty, or object of our faith—the Lord Jesus Christ. God may cause our circumstances to suddenly fall apart, which may bring the realization of our unfaithfulness to Him for not recognizing that He had ordained the situation. We never saw what He was trying to accomplish, and that exact event will never be repeated in our life. This is where the test of our faithfulness comes. If we will just learn to worship God even during the difficult circumstances, He will change them for the better very quickly if He so chooses.

Being faithful to Jesus Christ is the most difficult thing we try to do today. We will be faithful to our work, to serving others, or to anything else; just don’t ask us to be faithful to Jesus Christ. Many Christians become very impatient when we talk about faithfulness to Jesus. Our Lord is dethroned more deliberately by Christian workers than by the world. We treat God as if He were a machine designed only to bless us, and we think of Jesus as just another one of the workers.

The goal of faithfulness is not that we will do work for God, but that He will be free to do His work through us. God calls us to His service and places tremendous responsibilities on us. He expects no complaining on our part and offers no explanation on His part. God wants to use us as He used His own Son."

thanks Oswald.
