Weekend Soundbites

I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me... By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you... 

"I like us. We make me happy. :D" KH
Right back atcha, dear friend.
We'll make it through!
Thanks for being safe
for allowing me, by voicing it to you,
to confess what I hadn't yet admitted to myself.
You always keep it real.

In this and all things, I've never walked alone.

Friends remind each other not to give up and of reasons for hope,
of which at the end of the day, there is only One.

By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you... What you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. Share in suffering as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 

Even when confronted
with the truth of 長痛不如短痛.
with the sliminess of my deceitful heart.
with how jealous/possessive/covetous my "love" is.

Think over... for the Lord will give you understanding in everything. 

"Your mother is emotionally... special." EK
O boy.
On account of Friday PM to Sunday AM's absurdities, I was... so preoccupied the rest of the weekend. Too much to really make the effort to socialize and knit the group together even though I organized.
Rame. Why ever half-ass anything?! Your mercy... I need it so.

No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him. An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.  It is the hard-working farmer who ought to have the first share of the crops. 

"... [unintelligible]... confused ...[unintelligible]..." FC
Me too.

But God's firm foundation stands... “Let everyone who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity.” ... Be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work. So flee youthful passions.

"You have a way of bringing random people together =) fun fun!" JL
I can think of few things I enjoy more.
I want this "way" to be only from You.

Madison Yelpers have low standards.
Or is it that NYC has imprisoned my palate to its city limits?

Pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies... The Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil... 

"[cannot-be-repeated-should-be-forgotten/forgiven]" AL
Ma, what do I do with you?
How do I love you rightly?

There will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self... proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.

Avoid such people. For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions, always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth.

  1. I stumbled upon your blog again. Haven't read it in quite a bit. I really like this post, even though I had no idea what the conversations were about. I'm impressed by your devotion to the Word, but even more so by how deeply the people in your life affect you.

    I hope we get the chances to get to know each other better E. =]
