The Call to Death...

The only effort that I can make that will result in eternal value is that of dying to self and full surrender to Jesus Christ.

"I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me." Gal 2:20

"And he who does not take up his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake will find it" -Jesus (Matt 10:38&39)

From the Pilot in Command

Just for all those out there who wonder if I'm still in existence, I am. That's right its me, Josiah! I have been busy lately, although that has not been only reason I have not blogged in our log lately. I'm not quite sure why I haven't blogged in a while. My time has been busy on other things I guess, and Abi has been keeping it up to date. I wish I could get my pictures off my phone then you would have something to look at, instead of just boring you with words.

Last I checked God is still on the throne, because of that fact, life is good! Abi is doing and look'n great. We are now within four weeks of her due date (aka "The Final Four") and she is transitioning from the cute pregnant feeling, to the final weeks where big and uncomfortable replaces the feelings of cute. Although I think she still looks cute! I have been working for a guy running bulldozer and with all this snow we had been keeping busy pushing snow with the dozers. Today is slow, my boss said to take the day off. So its a get the "to do list" done today! (I don't think the "to do list" ever gets done)

A theme that God has been impressing upon me the past couple weeks is centered around Romans 8:28- "And we know that all things work together for good the those who love God and are called according to his purpose."

Have you ever thought, "Why would God want me with all my mistakes and imperfections?" I know I have. There are times I just plain blow it. As I think about this I come to realize more and more that God loves me not because of who I am, but because of who He is! God wants a relationship with me not because I'm perfect or such a great person, but because He is such a great and awesome God and it is because of who He is. God desire is to take my mistakes, if I'm repentant, and surrendered, and turn those mistakes into something that will bring Him glory!! What a awesome God we serve!
