what movie is keith RENTING FROM THE REDBOX?

At some point you have to choose between life and fiction.  The two are very close but they never actually touch.  They are two very, very different things.

TRUE WORSHIP . . . . . Revelation 19:1-10 Praise is the heartfelt response to God by those who love him.  The more you get to know God and realize what he has done, the more you will respond with praise.  Praise is at the heart of true worship.  Let your praise of God flow out of your realization of who he is and how much he loves you.

SEXUAL SIN . . . . . Revelation 2:20 Why is sexual immorality serious?  Sex outside marriage always hurts someone.  It hurts God because it shows that we prefer to follow our own desires instead of God’s Word.  It hurts others because it violates the commitment so necessary to a marriage relationship.  It hurts us because it often brings disease to our body and harms our personality.  Sexual sin has tremendous power to destroy families, communities, and even nations because it destroys the relationships upon which these institutions are built.  God wants to protect us from hurting ourselves and others, so we should have no part in sexual immorality, even if our society says it’s all right.

?  How can I find my passion?  I'm so stressed about finding the right road, the only thing I'm sure is that I'm not where I should be.
! Here's the way: Run down as many paths--straight, winding, high, wide, narrow--as you can.  Get going, my girl!  Run!  Fly!  Try them all!  Take them all!  One day, you'll look down and see that your path is following you.

A TEST . . . . . 1 John 4:20-21 It is easy to say we love God when it doesn’t cost us anything more than weekly attendance at a religious service.  But the real test of our love for God is how we treat the people right in front of us—our family members and fellow believers.  We cannot truly love God while neglecting to love those who are created in his image.

CUT DOWN . . . . . 1 Peter 3:9 in our sinful world, it is acceptable to tear people down verbally or to get back at them if we feel hurt.  Remembering Jesus’ teaching to turn the other cheek (Matthew 5:39), Peter encourages his readers to pay back wrongs by praying for the offenders.  In God’s kingdom, revenge is unacceptable behavior.  So is insulting a person, no matter how indirectly it is done.  Rise above getting back at those who hurt you.  Instead, pray for them.

SAY WHAT . . . . . James 3:2-3 What you say and what you don’t say are both important.  Proper speech is not only saying the right words at the right time, but also controlling your desire to say what you shouldn’t.  Examples of wrongly using the tongue include gossiping, putting others down, bragging, manipulating, false teaching, exaggerating, complaining, flattering, and lying.  Before you speak, ask, “is it true, is it necessary, and is it kind?”

Our Daily Bread Employment Center

It has been a little over a year since I have even stepped foot inside of the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Housing & Resource Center. Thanks to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and my on again/off again boyfriend, Richard Hunt, I have had a warm place to lay my head each and every night. I'm taking control of my finances by waking up every afternoon and catching the 22 Bus to my grueling and tiring job at McDonald's.  I'm taking control of my health by taking my antiviral drugs everyday as prescribed.  I'm mending relationships old and new. I'm truly taking control of my life. I'm not perfect and I'm nowhere close to where I want to be just yet but I'm definitely headed in the right direction. All I can do is take one step at a time like Jordin Sparks and remain a humble and honest person. I'm putting all my trust in the Lord because I know that he has already prepared the way, I just have to take heed.

I recently saw the movie, The Pursuit of Happyness, starring Will Smith. It's been all of a few years since I've seen the film (I actually have the DVD) and it really struck a nerve more so that it did the first few times I watched it. I'm quite sure it's because I'm truly living the same experience. I've finally experienced a traumatic low point in my life where I really didn't see any sign of hope and miraculously and out of nowhere the holes in my life began to mend on their own. When I first saw The Pursuit of Happyness, I had no idea how it was to live inside of a homeless shelter and now I do and I've made it through to the other side. The end of this saga hasn't come yet and I have not been able to truly say that I've found happyness but I can say that I'm moving one day closer to my dreams. I just hope and pray that I stay on track this time.

BE THERE . . . . . Hebrews 10:25 To neglect Christian meetings is to give up the encouragement and help of other Christians.  We gather together to share our faith and strengthen each other in the Lord.  As we get closer to the time of Christ’s return, we may face many spiritual struggles, tribulations, and even persecution.  Anti-Christian forces will grow in strength.  Difficulties should never be excuses for missing church services.  Rather, as difficulties arise, we should make an even greater effort to be faithful in attendance.

FORGIVEN . . . . . Philemon 10, 16 Paul asked Philemon not only to forgive his runaway slave who had become a Christian, but to accept him as a brother.  As Christians, we should forgive as we have been forgiven (Matthew 6:12; Ephesians 4:31-32).  True forgiveness means that we treat the person we’ve forgiven as we would want to be treated.  Is there someone you say you have forgiven, but who still needs your kindness?
