Awesome post from Owl City’s blog

Hey friends.  I often check out Owl City’s blog.  I love Adam Young’s music and love even more that he often presents God’s Word to those who read up on his site and follow him on Twitter.  The language he uses is so beautifully descriptive.  And he ended the well-written lament with a passage from Ephesians.  Read and be moved.

Adam Young hates goodbyes.

Have a good night

Sunday Psalm (Psalm 5)

Hey. I know I haven’t posted in a while. Two weeks ago was midterm week and school was INSANE. Then, last week, I was in Florida with the Upland Community Church high school youth group. So, here is our Sunday Psalm for this week, and I hope maybe I can post later this week. However, I have two sermons to prepare for the next week and a half on top of all of my other school work, so no promises. Enjoy the Psalm!

Psalm 5

[5:1] Give ear to my words, O LORD; consider my groaning.

[2] Give attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to you do I pray.

[3] O LORD, in the morning you hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch.

[4] For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with you.

[5] The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; you hate all evildoers.

[6] You destroy those who speak lies; the LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

[7] But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love, will enter your house. I will bow down toward your holy temple in the fear of you.

[8] Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me.

[9] For there is no truth in their mouth; their inmost self is destruction; their throat is an open grave; they flatter with their tongue.

[10] Make them bear their guilt, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out, for they have rebelled against you.

[11] But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you.

[12] For you bless the righteous, O LORD; you cover him with favor as with a shield.

Taylor people need to read this.

Hello there!  Many of you know I regularly read the blog of a man by the name of Jon Acuff.  He writes a blog, and has released a book, called Stuff Christians Like.  He writes satire dealing with many aspects of Christianity.  He is a great guy who writes both hilarious and convicting blog posts.  I ran across this one today as I was reading some of his posts as I have been busy lately.  Taylor people need to read this.  It is a post poking fun at the concept of “Intentional Community.”

Taylor folks, you’ll probably “lol” for real.

Other folks, you may just smile.

Have a good day.
