My popie (daddy) Loved on me yesterday

I always ask God to show me his love or reach out just so I know he is for real and there. Yesterday I totally felt it... I went to church and like usual just kind of sitting by myself and at the end of service this lady came up to me and said "You know I try to do what the Lord asks of me and he told me to come pray for you so ...here I am ...can I pray for you?" I started crying ( which i have started to realize I am a major crier..I think i was in major denial before and said I wasn't but I so am)... Noone ever does that to me and I loved it! Especially it being so random and from a stranger.

Thank you popie

I love my car - yes that '93 Ford beat up Escort

There have been a many a lessons that I have been learning since being here but one of the most pressing... (not THE most pressing but still pressing) lessons has been from what I like to now call a "Life Verse" of mine:

"Therefore, I urge you, bothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God- this is your spiritual act of worship. DO NOT conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is- his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:1-2

woo just typing that verse out made me think about a lot of things and I know there has to be a zillion things packed in there that I have yet to have a revelation on but most of all if that not transforming to the pattern of this world. Which brings me to the title of this blog... dum duh dda ... "I love my car- yes the '93 Ford beat up escort" every day it reminds me I am not of this world. It's like a daily reminder to be confident in the Lord and his views and not this world. I have been made fun of already for my car and at times I find myself thinking why not just go get a car... you can make the payments.... but then a remember that here in America your status and worth is judged by what car ou drive where you live what you have and I do not live by that set of standards. Thank you Jesus.

Now mind you in just rereading that verse I have a laundry list of things I just know God wants to teach me about - since currently I really have no idea what they mean. A nonexahusted list is as follows:
be transformed by the renewing of your mind...hmmm (possible going through that now but not sure)
Test and approve God's will?? What on earth does that mean?
His good perfect and pleasing will? What does Good mean?

Either way I praise God for faith ... because I have no idea about him sometimes.
