Stuff

Life is full (of emotion, busyness, people etc) at the moment, my apologies for the lack of activity on the blog. Spent a great weekend at the Windsor Park d-camp with Tash McGill, and a day with friends in Auckland. God doing lots of stuff in deep places at the moment. Bit of grief in the mix due to some family circumstances, and with a bunch of other things happening it feels a bit more costly to be living out of the suitcase at the moment. Its being a year and a half of living out of the suitcase for most of the week, I would love to be at home right now.

Quote of the moment (no idea where from): God is far more concerned with our character than our comfort.

Its just frustrating that God normally has to use discomfort to shape us. I have being thinking a lot again about the fruit of the spirit (Gal 5), and have being hit by two of the fruits in particular; long-suffering and faithfulness. By definition I dont think you can qualify as being a long-suffering person without suffering for a length of time (duh). Or being faithful without having hung in there during times of doubt, pain, suffering, major mistakes or bad choices, or the sense of God's absence. We don't like to talk about this sort of stuff that often though. I think this is why the prosperity stuff rarks me up so much.

On that light note, hope you are rockin : )

“Stuff”

    Prosperity teaching has removed the conept of virute from the Chrsitian life.

    Prosperity people are concerned with what they are doing and where they are, not who they are, and who they are becoming.
