Voice Recognition

Check out this real fun video about music that you'll know without even hearing any of the lyrics:

You don't even need to hear the words to those songs and you know exactly what song is being played.  Maybe some of those you missed, but I'd be willing to bet every single one of you knows at least ONE of the songs in that little medley.

How do you know it that well?  How do you know a song so well that you can recognize it without hearing any of the lyrics?  The answer is hopefully obvious:  you probably have heard that sucker at least 20 times!

Have you ever caught yourself wondering why you can't hear the voice of God?  Maybe it's because you haven't spent that much time listening to, really getting to know, the voice of God.  Have you considered that you don't hear God's voice simply because you don't know it that well?

2 Timothy 3:16 reminds us that all scripture is God-breathed.  Every bit of scripture comes from God.  If you want to hear from him, read the bible!

Hope that encourages you a little bit :)

First World Problems

Ever heard of the hash tag "first world problems"?

People complain about their phones, their computers, when things aren't going their way in a drive-through line, when a store has run out of their favorite candy... whatever.  This is a good one:


I mean seriously Pringles, why shape it that way!?

Hopefully whenever you read some of those, they'll remind you of your priorities, or maybe what should be your priorities.  "First world problems" aren't really problems at all, obviously, but sometimes we have our priorities so mixed up that we let silly little things that won't even matter in an hour affect our entire day.  Where do your priorities lay?

Remember Luke 9:23-26

Jesus demands ALL of you, not just the little things.

super cool video!

This Video is AMAZING!

A 9 year old created his own card board arcade, this video is about how it became a sensation in Los Angeles.

Cain's Arcade

When was the last time you went all out for something you were passionate about like Mr. Cain here?!  Pretty fun and inspirational I think!

Did you guys know that the bible says TRAINING is super valuable?

 We're supposed to train hard in Godliness. Do you train as hard as this guy must to get where he is?  Imagine how cool it would be if we trained to pursue Godliness like this:

p.s. don't try that stuff at home!

Light in Darkness

God saw that light was good, and he separated it from the darkness. Genesis 1:4

For you are all children of the light and of the day; we don't belong to darkness and night. 
1 Thessalonians 5:5

For you were once darkness, but now you are a light in the Lord. Live as children of light. Ephesians 5:8 

Some of the most beautiful paintings and pictures are of sunrises and sunsets. In fact, the only way the human eye can even see color is when light is shining on an object. With out light, how could we see beauty? In a world that is very dark, and lonely... we are called to be children of light. Yes, the prince of the world (satan) is prowling in the darkness. His aim is to steal, kill, and destroy. For the Lord has placed a light inside of us through his Holy Spirit. And the fruits of the spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness and faithfulness (Galatians 5:22-23). In a world full of suffering, pain, hurt, violence, sorrow, and emptiness WE possess the fruits of the spirt (Light). So let your light shine! 

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.  -Matthew 5:14-16
