-Toni Morrison - A Mercy
So we must decide exactly how we see God. Do we serve a God who is limtless and can exceed even our greatest expectations? Or do we serve a small God who leaves out in the cold to fend for ourselves?
Don't be fooled His characteristics and who He is are not at question. We have a living testament to His infinite and omnipotent power. The thing at question is what limits have YOU put on Him. You can only recieve what you expect He can provide.

"Comfort is the cornerstone of selfish living"
This is my mantra for the new year. I want to live an uncomfortable life. All of us in this world have decided that comfort is what drives us. We can see this easily with obesity in America, the debt crisis, and even our treatment of each other. I define selfish living as putting our wants over our needs.America has decided that food, and things(houses, cars, i-pods) will make us happy, and oftentimes they do. In life we need to enjoy life itself and not just the things in it. We should savor the everyday happenings of life, the air, the cold, the human touch, all of that. So my resolution this year is to live uncomfortably. That means for me only eating what i need to sustain life, don't oversleep, help someone in need, not constantly being entertained, and spend time with God. Sounds simple but living an unselfish uncomfortable life is a stretch, but worth every painstaking minute of it. Try it and see.
