Is it REALLY Him we live for everyday?

What to say, Lord,
It's You who gave me life
And I can't explain just how
Much you mean to me know,
That you have saved me, Lord
I give all I am to You
That everyday I could,
Be a light that shines Your name,

Everyday, It's You I live for,
Everyday, I'll follow after You,
Everyday I'll walk with You, my Lord.

Everyday, Lord,
I'll learn to stand upon Your word,
And I pray that I,
I might come to know You more,
That You would guide me
In every single step I take,
that everyday I can,
Be Your light unto the world.

It's You I live for everyday,
It's You I live for everyday,
It's You I live for everyday,
It's You I live for everyday.

Look at the lyrics. Is it REALLY Him we live for everyday. (In case you haven't figure it out, I love Christian music :D)

Are you a hypocrite-Christian?

I was flipping through the channels the other day and heard a talk show host saying 'I love it when a 'Christian' smokes a little meth on the side'. Wow. Think about it, people constantly are watching you.
Are you living like a Christian? Or are you living a double life-your life at church, and your life the other days of the week? Your 'other' life may not be smoking meth, but you may be just doing your own thing instead of listening to God.
Let God take the wheel this week.

Trust Him

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."
-Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

He knows what He's doing. Just trust Him for once. Try it today.

Hebrews 11 thoughts....

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

Hebrews 11:1-3

Wow, Faith is beind sure of what we hope for and certain of what we don't see. Are we certain with our faith in God? We don't see Him, so are we sure of what we hope for (Him)?
The universe was FORMED by God's command out of nothing!

Re-Post from June 10th

For all of you that have iPhones, and don't feel like paying an extra dollar to make a ringtone out of a song you already own....Here is my tutorial on how to make them free :)
Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Okay, so thanks to whiteboyz59 on YouTube, I figured out that if you
Go to Control Panel (Then classic view if using Vista)
Click on 'Folder Options'
Then click on the 'View' tab.
Uncheck "Hide extentions for known file types"
Check "Show hidden files and folders"
Then....to make the ringtone.. (It doesn't matter if you bought the song from Apple or not)
1. Right click on the song you want in iTunes,
2. Click 'Get Info'
3. Click on the 'Options' tab
4. Select your start and stop time (Type in what part of the song you want your ringtone to be)
5. Click 'OK'
6. Then, right click on the song you are using and click 'Create AAC Version'
7. When that finishes, repeat steps 1-3 on the orginal song and uncheck the start and stop times.
8. Make a folder in 'My Documents' called "Iphone Ringtones"
9. Click on the shorter song (the one you made AAC) and drag it to your folder you just made.
10. Right click on the file and click 'Rename'
11. Change the '.m4a' to '.m4r' therefore making it a ringtone. (It will say 'Changing the file may cause the file to become unusable. Do you want to continue?' You click 'yes)
12. Go back to iTunes and delete the song you just moved. Click 'Move to Recycle Bin' because you don't need it anymore.
13. Click on your 'Ringtones' tab in iTunes. (If you don't see 'Ringtones' click on 'Edit' then on 'Preferences' then check the 'Ringtones' box
14. Drag the newly made ringtone from your 'iPhone ringtone' folder into iTunes.
15. Plug in your iPhone and in the ringtones tab under your iphone click 'Sync all ringtones'
Your ringtone is now on your phone!

-K :)

Ephesians 5:17-19

Therefore, do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead be filled with the Spirit. Speak to each other with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord.

-Ephesians 5:17-19

Hmmm...We live IN the world, but we are not to be OF the world. Be an example.

Oh Happy DAY! This picture is what I think about when I hear this song. My sins are washed away and Jesus is ALIVE! I encourage you to be HAPPY today! Jesus has beaten death and through Him we are alive forever!

Happy Day
The greatest day in history, Death is beaten
You have rescued me
Sing it out Jesus is alive
The empty cross, The empty grave
Life eternal You have won the day
Shout it out Jesus is alive
He's alive

Oh happy day, happy day
You washed my sin away
Oh happy day, happy day
I'll never be the same
Forever I am changed

When I stand, in that place
Free at last, meeting face to face
I am Yours Jesus You are mine
Endless joy, perfect peace
Earthly pain finally will cease
Celebrate Jesus is alive
He's alive

Oh what a glorious day
What a glorious way
That You have saved me
Oh what a glorious day
What a glorious name

He LOVES us!

He is jealous for me, Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden, I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves us,
Oh how He loves.

And we are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If his grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.
And heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don’t have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about, the way…

He is jealous for ME! We bend beneath the weight of His wind and mercy like a tree in a hurricane. I was reminded today, how GREAT His affections are for me. He loves ME (Kathleen Johnson) and He loves you. We are all sinners. He could have just said 'Nope, I know she is going to sin, I'm not even going to make her'. But He LOVES US. We are His portion and He is our prize. His grace gave us redemption.

This song wasn't my favorite when I first heard it, but then I was quiet when I was listening to it being sung at church on a Sunday morning. And God really spoke to me 'I love you. And I am bigger than you, but I still love you. You are my portion (property) and I am Your prize. I love you more than you could ever know." Wow...He loves ME. Really, The creator of everyone in this earth knows every hair on my head and every thought I think. Wow... That is my Abba Father.

Think about it..

God's Word is.....

Your Word, Oh Lord, is eternal; It stands firm in the Heavens. -Psalm 119:89

The grasss withers and the flowers fall , but the Word of the Lord stands forever. -Isaiah 40:8

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. -2 Timothy 3:16-17

Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. For the prophecy never had it's origin in the will of man, but men spoke FROM God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. -2 Peter 1:20-21

See a patern??? God's Word is eternal, it stands forever and it has been breathed by Him, not just random people who decided to write something down.
Anything but God is useless. It all will wither and fall away. GOD IS THE ONLY THING THAT STANDS FOREVER!

Romans 10:9-13

That if you confess with your mouth 'Jesus is Lord' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart you believe and are justified and with your mouth you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in Him will never be put to shame." For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile- the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on Him, for 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'

By His Wounds.....

I have to memorize Isaiah 53:1-6 for school this week, and I am having difficulties memorizing it.

So, I stopped to think about it....

Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hid their faces, he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we consider him stricken by God, smitten by Him, and afflicted. But He was pierced for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities. The punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquities of us all.

-Isaiah 53:1-6

When God was here, he wasn't this supernatural thing dressed in white, floating around. He was walking around like a normal man. Not very many people knew that He was the 'Messiah'. He was despised and people didn't look twice at Him. Yet, He took up our sins and carried our sorrows, and died on the cross for OUR sins. He didn't do a thing. He was perfect! Think about that. He is the Son of God, yet people spit in His face and hung Him on a cross. I learned in my Bible curriculum last week that while Jesus was on the cross, He was in hell, conquering it. That's why He said 'God, Why have you forsaken Me'. Wow...He must really love us..

There is also a song about verse 5...
'He was pierced for our transgression, crushed for our sins. The punishment that brought us peace, was upon Him.
By His wounds, By His wounds we are healed.
We are healed by Your sacrifice, and the life that you gave.
We are healed for You paid the price, and by Your grace we are saved, we are saved.
What can wash away my sin, nothing but the blood of Jesus.

-'By His Wounds' sung by Brian Littrell, Mac Powell, Mark Hall and Steven Curtis Chapman

I've realized that if you follow my sister's blog you know basically everything that's going on in my life, too!
We have 109 school days left (YAY!), We are going to Dallas today for dinner with my mom's cousin and of course, Sam Moon :)

Anywho, Something that has been on my heart, is reading my Bible. As you've read in my blog, I've read through the Bible twice, this is my third time. But, I was reading 10 chapters a day. Even though I was taking notes, I wasn't really studying it. So, this time I've cut back to under 5 chapters a day.
The funny thing is, It drives me crazy when people say 'I don't have time to read my Bible' . My thought to that is, 'Really? Why are you on this earth? To serve Jesus? So shouldn't you learn about Him?'
Well....I've become 'busy' and it upsets me. I make time for other things, but not God. How sad is that? I am going to do better this month. Will you too?
