Amen MJC!

It sounds like GOD is richly blessing you and your family. It many times just takes prayer, more prayer, and the patience to wait upon the LORD. It's true that trials many times bring us closer to GOD and make us stronger in CHRIST. GOD is equipping you for the future, so just keep yielding and let HIM work in and through you.

Love In Christ,
Tom

KEEP LOOKING UP!!

Thank you for that.  I use that website some when I am preparing my lesson for my Wednesday night class.  I try to find simpler translations of some verses every now and then.

I have not been online much lately.  I have been so busy.  Now that school has started back I never have much time for anything.  I go to school all day and then I go to work.  I am getting 26-30 hours a week even while going to school.  I have just about got it all worked out though.  Now my bills are finally in order.  I've got a truck payment at the beginning of the month.  Then insurance falls somewhere in the middle, and any repairs I need can kind of work around that. 

I am kind of in the middle of a decision making process now.  I have been working where I am at right now for a year and two months.  In the past month I have had three job offers.  One from a NAPA dealer nearby, one from the gas station my mom works at, and one from another gas station about 6 mile from the house.  I found out about the last one today.  The owner talked to my dad.  I really didn't consider the other two because they are about 13 miles away in a nearby town, but this one is close to home and I would actually be making more money that I am right now.  I don't really want to move because I love it where I am and my bosses have been so wonderful to me.  I want to stay loyal to them.  They were the ones who went out on a limb for me by hiring a 15 year old girl they hardly knew.  I don't want to leave them.  There are a few other reasons too.  I think my dad wants me to move though.  He doesn't care much for my current employers.  I am worried that he will try to make me move or make me feel bad about not moving.  I am just trying to make the right decision.  I could use a little prayer in that situation.

I also have a praise report.  Sunday before last my eleven year old sister got saved.  And my dad has gotten back in church.  That is two answered prayers.  I am really excited about that!

Thank you all.  You have been so wonderful to me since I came on here.

MJC

Wonderful news about your dad and sister, thanks for letting us know!  Also, about the job offers!

I am not so worried about the job decision right now.  I feel like I need to just stay where I am at, but I am afraid that I am going to be forced into moving and I don't want that.  I am capable of making my own decision sensibly.(so says every other 16 year old, too)

I have enjoyed being on here a lot.  I haven't been treated as a crazy opinionated teenager!  I don't get taken seriously as much as I feel I should. 

Thanks for your continued prayers.  I need them and so does my church as we look for a new pastor.

Hello MJC,

First, I want you to know that you will remain in my prayers. I give thanks for young adults who are trying to live for the LORD. You have a lot of Christians in your corner wanting the very best for you, but you also have GOD with you every step of the way.

I'm chuckling a little bit about my thoughts about older people when I was your age. People over 30 were over the hill. Considering that I'm almost twice over the hill, I'm curious about what you think about older Christians. It is somewhat funny about how we think about issues of age. SO, it really does go in both directions. It becomes somewhat funny when we apply stereotypical thinking and neglect considering the specific individual.

Christians are especially interesting because they accept CHRIST at all different ages. As an example, a 70 year old person accepts CHRIST and they are a babe in CHRIST. A person of your age might have been a Christian most of their lives and be 10 times more mature in CHRIST than the 70 year old example. The point is that the world's stereotypical thinking many times doesn't work with Christians. In fact, stereotypical thinking fails frequently whether we are talking about Christians or non-Christians.

SO, what do you really think about older Christians? Before you answer, please consider that some of us already have indoor plumbing and electricity.

Love In Christ,
Tom

Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable GIFT, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour Forever!

Aren't all teenagers crazy and opinionated?   Wink Grin Grin  I hope that you know that I am just joking here. Brother Tom said it well. There is a difference between maturity in physical age and that of spiritual age.

lol...this is kind of amusing to me for some reason!  I don't have a problem with older people at all.  I especially like to talk to older Christians sometimes because I feel that they have a good bit more experience in life than I do.  I'll be the first to tell you that I am clueless.  But I will say that some older people, as well as young people are a little too set in their ways.  They aren't as open minded as they should be.  Things are their way and that's the only way it could ever possibly be; but as I said that is the same with older and younger people. 

There is a huge misconception about older people being so much closer to God.  A lot of people think that way.  I think that no matter what age people are, you can look at the way they live their lives and the fruits that they sow to see just how close to God they really are, whether they are 15 or 50.  That's just another one of my opinions though Smiley

I must add that the stories about having a pee-pot under the edge of the bed in the winter time, and bathing children in a wash tub do kind of amuse me!

 Grin   Grin   Grin    ROFL!

Hello MJC,

Sister, only the rich folks had the wash tubs, and the rest of us used barrels catching rain water from the roof.   Wink   I'm kidding - that was before my time. We were poor, but we did have electricity and an indoor bath, but it was for two families - 4 adults and 6 children. It was a 1 bedroom mansion and we were spoiled.   Wink  HOWEVER, it is true that many of our friends and family members didn't have electricity or indoor plumbing.

I do agree completely with your post. Age doesn't have anything to do with how close we are to GOD. That depends on our individual "Walk In The Spirit". It's also true that many older people are closed-minded. BUT, some of them tried being open-minded many times, and their brains fell out.   Grin  Older people have had more opportunities to learn from the "School Of Hark Knocks".

You made an excellent and true observation that GOD will judge Christians by their fruits and living testimony, not their age. Christians shouldn't use stereotyping with other Brothers and Sisters in Christ.

Love In Christ,
Tom

Hebrews 10:19-23 NASB
Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful;

Does that answer your question about my thoughts on older Christians?

Well, my job dilema is over.  I got all upset Sunday night at the church I went to.  I was invited to go to a nearby church that was having a sing night.  So I went, and I got to talking to a woman that I know pretty well.  She and her husband are customers at the store that I work at, but anyhow, I their family to death and I just felt like I needed to talk to her.  I told her what was going on, and for some reason I got all upset.  Finally I got up the nerve to go talk to the man that made me the latest job offer, who is also a member of that church.  Daddy said that he told him if I would go talk to him and his wife I had the job.  So I talked to him, and he informed me that they had already hired someone else the day before. If I had been two days earlier I would have had the job.  I am so glad that I was late!  I don't think he quite understood why I was so happy not to get the job.  I was worried that I was going to be forced into moving and I didn't want that.  I am just as excited as I can be!

Also, we are traveling to Pensacola, FL tomorrow.  I lived there until I was almost 13.  I still have a good bit of family there and one of my cousins is getting married.  I am excited about the trip.

I will post when we get back!

Hello MJC,

Sister, I'm glad to hear that everything is working out so well. Enjoy your trip and be careful! Wear your seatbelt. Did I do my old guy duty in nagging you about seatbelts?   Wink

YES - I think that we understand each other on age issues. I'll just give thanks that age and other small differences aren't an issue with most Christians. After all, we have more important things to concentrate on.

Love In Christ,
Tom
