<jonathan> now that God has taken me to the ripe old age of 29, I am finally age-conscious. Not in the sense that I feel like I'm not supposed to be hanging out with the people I do, but that the things i do have a certain purpose. Oh, no, don't get me wrong. I have never ceased to believe that even when i screw up, God has a p[urpose for it, or that I was sitting around doing absolute heck-all my entire life, but I am conscious that by this time in my dad's life, he had me AND a newborn daughter. I can't even drive. Yen tells me not to compare myself, and that I have a different purpose. I suppose so.
thanks all, for surprising me with the cake yesterday! And no, for those who heard it on the radio, I have not screwed up my o levels a third time!
Am making my mind up to do my best, to try my best to learn self control, even in hard times, with God's strength. Then when I screw up, THAT'S when i'll rely on grace. I'll not sit around and wait for something to happen. I still stand by that. And to that question that I was once asked, I answer with another querstion,"If God asked us to do it, with the awareness that we'll eventually screw up, does that mean that we should not do it, then?Then it REALLY becomes an irony, a paradox of the faith we profess; then it's not about obedience, but about works. What say you?" </jonathan> <!--9:33 AM-->
