Post of the Day goes to Give me a U by Anne Jackson.

This is a new find, and so far her blog looks quite interesting. Another to add to Google Reader!

Blogging Post of the Day

dragonBig full on day that started early and has finished… well smack bang on average: late. Geoff turned 23! We went and did fun stuff with lots of different people, ate equivalent to small house and by observation he’s even more tired than I am. (He’s also got a preaching spot at church tomorrow!)

So after you go say nice things about him you can read on…

I’m not sure if anyone noticed the sky today but it was beautiful. I got home and had a quick look at trusty Google Reader and found Sammy’s post: God has ADD.

This is the POD (post of the day) for today. It is very simple, very real, and a very decent reminder. It’s both wonderous and almost sad that sometimes we need that nudge to remind us of God,

Look at me!

Remember me!

Hello down there?

At youth last night we tripleted off to talk about what we know about God and the two girls I was with, wound up having a chat about fear. The sky outside was pretty ominous and a little thunder was hanging around plus a fair ammount of wind. *Sarah was talking about how she gets so afraid of storms that she makes herself sick. I managed only somewhat effectively to turn the conversation towards the fear of God and talking about ways we can see God. Granted we didn’t get all that far as Sarah was insistent on relaying her various strategies to cope: taking her walkman to many places so as to ‘drown out the noise with music’.

In thinking about the fear of God (which I know has much to do with reverence – that’s the short version), but in aligning it with fear itself. Fear isn’t something that we can ignore. Not if it is big enough. It’s present, it’s very real.

Like Sarah, how would things be if we took some measures to ‘be prepared’. What would life be if we really feared God and acknowledged his constancy?

As Sammy has very much explained, knowing the presence of a powerful God is certainly not a detriment but something quite amazing and something quite beautiful.

Christianity Ministry Post of the Day

One for the Road has a post that is worth your while:

Why I am growing to appreciate and value all kinds of christian – but especially the old kind…

While I’m going on about links, Matt Hill pointed me towards Red White You which is a new online youthy Christian community that a) looks pretty cool b) looks like it has some decent content. Unlike Gush which is currently forums only, this has some articles (like the old Gush). Probably apt to mention now that my Gush days are pretty much up, I’ve decided to be involved in the TEAR Vocare course/program this year and with that, uni, leading youth, work, the odd ESA camp, the occasional post on Advoc8, moving out etc… I’ll have more than enough on my plate.

Other good news is that today I got a call from where I used to work (MBO) and they’ve pretty much offered me my old job back with the view to getting me in on some half days (fitting in around uni) and perhaps a whole day. So work is pretty much sorted! I am very pleased to be heading back into such a fantastic work environment. I will still probably apply for the other job I’ve mentioned previously as it is graphic design type work which makes some sense in getting more experience, but we’ll see.

Post of the Day: Are we the living dead?

I was delighted to find this post on Jason Clark’s blog. To be honest I had a brief look, skimmed it and then spotted Makeesha’s name at the bottom – I really like her stuff so I went back to the top and read it more thoroughly. You should do the same!
