Spiritual Gluttony

I just thought I would share with you all what I have been learning lately. It goes along with my last post about chapel. God really used that time to refocus me on Him. Being focused on ministry and Bible classes is all good, but that can even become an idol if Jesus is not our focus. Because of my new found focus, God has been able to reveal to me why I have felt so spiritually dead lately. I now see that He has been trying to reveal this, but I couldn't see it because I wasn't focused on Him.

A couple weekends ago we went to Halifax for the Hillside Rally. While there, Jeff and I had a good talk with Matt Kieth who was on his final weekend of his internship with the youth group. We talked about spiritual gluttony. So many times Christians are being fed a lot (which is great) but we never give. We never pour out what is being poured into us. We think singing songs, hearing messages, and Bible study should fulfill our spiritual needs. But, as important as those things are, sharing our faith and being there for others is just as important. If we don't share what we are taking in, then we become spiritual gluttons.

I had become a spiritual glutton. Yes, I'm helping out in the youth group, but I don't open myself up to others. I don't continually share what God has done and is doing in my life. I haven't been reaching out to others in love. I've been soaking up all this knowledge and thinking about how I'm going to apply it to my future ministry, when I need to be applying it now. Spiritual gluttony is a disease that I don't want anymore. Do you?

Just something to think about. Have a great day. much love becky

God is so great and so good. It's 2:15 and we just got home from chapel. For those of you who don't find this odd, chapel is scheduled from 10-11. After the closing prayer, Natasha Erskine got up and spoke what the Holy Spirit had layed upon her heart. At first I was like "O come on", but I thank God for her obedience. The next three hours were spent in prayer. This was the number one priority as classes were excused and lunch was skipped. God moved and is moving on this campus. Bethany Bible College, as a whole, has been spiritually dead. It's no secret that many of us have put on our good Christian masks and have just been living. Not anymore. God is moving. He worked in such a powerful way the last four hours. I don't know, there may still be people in the chapel praying and if there is, sweet. I truly believe that this wasn't just an experience. Lives were changed today. I expect to see a great revival on campus, spreading to the churches we attend, and the town of Sussex. This is for real. Hearts were broken. Relationships were mended. Unity in Christ filled that small chapel. I'm stoked to see where God is going to lead individuals and this campus. It is a sweet thing to be a part of. Praise God for obedient servants like Natasha and for all those who have been diligently praying to see the revival take place. Please be praying for our campus, that we don't go back to our routine, placing other stuff above Christ. Please be praying for me, that I don't go back to my old routine. Have a great day everyone. much love becky

Blazer Hockey

The game tonight was so much fun. There was almost a fight and a lot of checking and what not which is all illegal in this league. But it makes for a fun game to watch. It was tied 2-2 at the end of the 3rd period so the captains decided to do a shoot out. The fourth player to go for BBC, Brandon Ingraham, scored the winning goal. Drew blocked all the shots during the shoot out. It was a good time. Here are a few pictures. There are some more on the picture page so go check 'em out. much love becky

Quotes and Pictures

Due to having a busier semester, we don't watch as much Boy Meets World. Because of this, we don't get ideas for quotes as often. So, the BMW quotes will most likely not be a weekly thing anymore. I will try to get one up here as frequently as possible, but I just don't have as much time this semester.

Also, we have new pictures up. We got a ton of snow last night so we went out and took some pictures. I'll hopefully get out to take some more before it gets dark. There are also new pictures of hockey, randomness, and Saturday nights with Morgan and Dan. Go check 'em out.

much love

I Will Bless Your Name Forever

All this news of people getting so angry over the cartoons of Muhammed has made me so thankful for the God I serve. The God I serve is loving and forgiving. Why would anyone choose to serve a god who is so full of vengence? Don't get me wrong, God does punish the wicked. The Old Testamnt depicts this very clearly. But He would never ask His servants to burn down embassies and execute cartoonists. People all around the world continually have their faiths bashed and made fun of, without this sort of retaliation. What kind of god can't take care of himself? Well, I don't want to get into what I think about the Muslim faith, but my heart aches lately for them to know the true God. The Almighty God who can take care of Himself. This whole incident has made me so thankful for the God I serve.

God is all about forgiveness and love and mercy. He came to earth with His only purpose to die on a cross for us. He died that we may be forgiven. The God I serve accepts all who call on His name. He desires that none should perish, but that all should live on in Paradise with Him. He desires all to know Him in an intimate relationship. He's not just some distant god who watches us like we're his little ant farm. He loves us and wants to have a relationship with each one of us, no matter what our background. I'm thankful I serve a God who loves me even when I screw up. I'm thankful I serve a God who accepts me back into His loving embrace when I stray from Him. How could anyone not want a relationship with their Creator who is so passionate about His creation?

God has been revealing Himself to me in new ways lately. He is amazing. I thank Him for His goodness and His greatness. As the song on my page says, "I will bless His name forever." much love becky

BWM Quote--Week 9
