Stare at the dot in the center of the circle and then move your head closer to it. Neat!

For Jenni

It's more powerful than God.
It's more evil than the devil.
The poor have it.
The rich need it.
If you eat it, you'll die.
What am I?

I finally received all my transcripts, so I can now send in my application to ACU. I will be mailing my packet tomorrow. As an added bonus, an old colleague of mine from Texas Tech contacted me yesterday. Dr. Mary Kallus was a classmate of mine at Tech and we worked on a paper together. She is now a professor at Eastern New Mexico State University. The paper we wrote is now going to be a chapter in the book she is writing. I will be given credit in the book. This also, helps me out with the ACU position. I now have something to put on my Curriculum Vitae under publishing, and Mary has also agreed to be a reference. I was worried about not having a college level reference and now I have one. God is taking care of me or at the very least calming my nerves.

Thank You

Often times we forget how many people we owe a Thank You to. I just wanted to take this opportunity to say Thank You to all of you that have helped me out in my life. Some of you may not have even known you've helped me. Others are praying and helping me everyday. And for some, my Thank you is simply for stopping in at my little site. For those of you that might not understand my Thank you, please visit the site below and feel free to pick the Thank You of your choice.

If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is “thank you,” that would suffice

What Faith Is

In the general sense of the word, to have faith is to believe in something or someone, to fully trust, to be so confident that you base your actions on what you believe. To have faith is to be fully convinced of the truthfulness and reliability of that in which you believe.

Faith in God then, is having the kind of trust and confidence in God and in Christ that leads you to commit your whole soul to Him as Saviour (Justifier, Cleanser, Healer, Deliverer) and Lord (Master, King).

The NIV translation says, "Faith is being sure of what we hope for, and certain of what we do not see." (Hebrews 11:1 NIV).

The NKJV of the Bible says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1).

Faith is a spiritual substance. When you have this spiritual substance in you, it communicates to you a certain inner knowing that the thing you are hoping for is certainly established, even before you see any material evidence that it has happened.

Faith is a spiritual force. Faith in God is a response to God's Word which moves God to act. Jesus said in Mark 11:23, "For assuredly I say to you, whoever SAYS to this mountain, 'Be removed and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but BELIEVES that those things he SAYS will be done, he will HAVE whatever he SAYS." Words mixed with the real, pure faith can and will move mountains or any other problem that we face.

Faith in God must be from the heart. It is not merely intellectual. It is spiritual. "For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (Romans 10:10)

Faith causes you to know in your heart before you see with your eyes. "For we walk by faith, not by sight." (2Cor 5.7)

Hope is a condition for faith. Hope is "a positive unwavering expectation of good". Hope is for the mind (1 Thessalonians 5:8; Hebrews 6:19), an anchor for the soul. It keeps us in the place where we can believe, but it is not in itself "faith". Yet, without hope there are no "things hoped for", and therefore there cannot be faith.

Through faith we can know we have the answer to our prayer before we see anything change in the natural order (1 John 5:14,15). Jesus said, "Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them." (Mk 11:24). God expects us, even commands us, to believe that our petitions are answered by God AT THE MOMENT WE MAKE THEM. We must believe that the response is immediately sent WHEN we pray. Faith is like the confirmation slip in our hearts that the goods are on the way. We have that confirmation slip instantly from God. We sense it in our hearts. The manifestation of those goods, the answer received, comes later as long as we are patient and do not throw away our confidence. (Hebrews 10:35-39; Hebrews 6:12)

Living faith always has corresponding actions. We talk what we really believe, and we act according to what we really believe. The heroes of faith like Abraham were considered men of faith because they acted on what God showed them. They acted on their faith. (Hebrews 11:17-38, James 2:21-23).

To live in faith means to do and say what you believe is right, without doubting.

First Biscuit

I had my first biscuits since October this morning, and man where they good. Heather made them and yes they are low crab. Only about fours carbs per biscuit. They tasted like wheat biscuits and have some elastic texture to them. This also made them more difficult to role out. If you would like more info about low crab food you go to
