Wow I have so much to tell you guys about and I’m so glad to share what I experienced these past few days. Origins conference 2012 happened and let me say it was AWESOME! This is a youth conference held annually by my church that is meant to bring kids back to the “origin” or Jesus. Every year is something special, kids having an encounter with God, releasing the bondage of addictions, fear, doubt, and generational struggles. It’s so awesome and this year was just as amazing. I had a blast practicing with the worship team and playing on a few of the songs. The room seemed to fill with an understanding that God is our provider and source of joy and life. This new revelation jump started an awakening of minds and hearts to live lives devoted to God. It’s hard enough to be a kid in today’s world, with peer pressure, drugs, tension to do well and be successful, even to grow up faster to be better than you once where. All these things are difficult to deal with but be a part of a family of believers that encourage and uplift, these once seemingly big issues know are small and manageable. I’m glad to share these photos and memories with you and hope you get inspired!
Do you seek to live a pure life?
11 He who loves purity of heart,
and whose speech is gracious, will have the king as his friend.
It says for the one who seeks a pure heart and speaks with grace will have the king as a friend. God will be pleased with you and will have a growing relationship with you, if you desire these things. Sometimes in our lives it’s easy to want or go after sinister things. Whether it’s watching a bad movie, speaking in a derogatory manner, or letting our flesh get the better of ourselves, we are human and will make mistakes. God values when we speak what is true. (Proverbs 16:13) I like this scripture because it points out what really matters and that’s our hearts. If you try your best and truly desire a life of purity and freedom in God, you will be blessed in return. Our motivation shouldn’t be to get something in return but rather to give glory and honor to God. If we humble ourselves enough we just might be able to see life in a new way, a way that is representative of Gods’ love for us.
I encourage you to stay strong in your faith no matter how big or small. Life is hard at times but when we surrender ourselves over to Gods love he blesses us, which is the most amazing thing anyone can experience.
An update to end all updates! Not really folks I just wanted to talk up the internet with my foolishness. I have decided to make Daily Devo Resource more compatible by blogging to the masses. I want everyone to enjoy this blog not just people looking for devotionals. I will still post daily devos under the “this week’s devo” page but will post random probably non related bloggy type stuffs under the “updates” page. I have always gotten a kick out of blogging, just never had the motivation to keep it up or the creativity to stay interesting. After exploring the blogosphere I have made some great friends and have been getting great comments and encouragement. (Keep it up) So to kick off this season of creativity I will give a little shout out to Virginia is for bloggers because I myself am a Virginian and love networking with other VA bloggers. I can’t wait to join the next meet and greet and chat with other cool cats.
As for today it is going great so far. I am at work however so that’s never too amazing, unless you’re blogging! (and drinking coffee) Hahaha I did complete my morning devos and improvised with using my phone as a source of music. Why you ask? I’ll tell you good and faithful follower. My wife’s Zune (kept in the car) has failed us once again and left me with no choice but to unplug it and plug in my phone! Woohoo I like my music more anyways. Ok well there must be some sort of work for me to do. Let me know what you want to chat about on this here bloggy thingy!
God loves you; I love you, thanks for stopping by!
