2 Things that annoy me and two things im stoked about

The things that annoy me today
(annoy isn't strong enough, but the string of expletives I would like to use in front of it will get me in too much trouble)
One: My propensity to sin, stuff up, do stuff I shouldn't do etc.
Two: That I need faith to follow God... I wish I could get rid of my strong doubts, questions, my unbelief, and it would be awesome to grow a mustard seed of faith someday.

Tangent: I'm off to speak at an Easter camp in a couple of days (8 Main Sessions gulp), and I was thinking last night about how sweet it would be if God turned up in all His glory, and just stood in the room (having watered down his glory enough so that we didn't all get fried). Then all my doubts and questions would be thrown away, and then I would be able to say "see kids, I told you he was freaken awesome". Imagine the altar call after that one! Instead, inevitably there will be young people where where God becomes very real for them, there will be young people who go along with a crowd and have an emotional time, and there will be a group that think it is a load of rubbish and try and spade the ladies (or vice verca).

The things I'm stoked about today
One: Grace; more and more I am amazed at how much I didn't understand the reality of grace growing up as a teenager. It is a scandal that I am just coming to terms with, and why I will continue to passionately follow the person of Jesus.
Two: Hope; not only that there will be a day when I see God in all his glory (and the sweetest right hand reef break you could ever imagine), but that I get to charge around on earth and do my best to be a person who ushers in this new Kingdom, and that God likes using me in spite of (and maybe because of) number two above.

And for those wondering if I got up to mischief in the weekend which brought on this post... sorry to disappoint, I hung out with my dad all weekend on a surf trip up north. And the thought of me getting up to mischief?!?! Never... ; )

    Yep I have been each one of those types of people in my life already, and it will porbably happen all over again.
