The semester is moving.  My last semester of college.  I am not working on my presentation for tomorrow, but I am not worried or stressed so I must be prepared.  I have just arrived to the last track of a new album I downloaded about 50 minutes ago.  Vetiver and i must say, very diggable.  I thoroughly enjoy picking a random download and come to discover that I thoroughly enjoy the music.  The album I downloaded is their newest "Tight Knit." Check em' out if you want.

Hmmmmm, let's see.  I Have been reading a lot.  The other day I realized I probably have read more books in the past 3 months than in the last year, I think that could be a good thing.

Just went to Vetiver's myspace and really dig the track "Roll On Babe" click the "Tight Knit" enlace above to hear it. 

Something from the past couple weeks...

So I was really stuck on this idea that I had to confront some people.  Also to to share with these people in my life what God has been doing in my life and things God has been showing me since last Easter en Argentina (mas o menos).  This preocupation with "obeying God" was consuming me and really leading me to discouragement and a lot of doubt.  I was in this process of seeking for wisdom, guidance, and especially tools/opportunities to carry out these acts of obedience that I thought i HAD TO DO in order to progress in my relationship with Christ.  As I was doing this, I ran into this...

". . .the friend of the bridegroom . . ." (John 3:29)

"To maintain this friendship and faithfulness to the Bridegroom (Christ), we have to be more careful to have the moral and VITAL relationship to Him ABOVE everything else, including obedience.  Sometimes there is nothing to obey and our only task is to maintain a vital connection with Jesus Christ . . ."

Wow, this was like a slap in the face, or a punch, but I have never been punched in the face so I cannot compare the two.  I came to realize that my focus was not Christ, but solely my relationship with these friends of mine.  How dangerous is that?  Super dangerous and ignorant.  Although I felt I was doing the right thing, I was actually yanking the control from God's hands and taking control of the situation while at the same time disguising this misunderstanding as "obedience to God."

Sleep time.  wakin up at 6am for some mate and breakfast.  buenas noches.

(quotes from Oswald Chambers)
