So i learned this at core group the other day and thought it was so cool:
psychologists say that we as humans mostly want to be known and to be accepted, which makes sense. if you talk about celebrities who have all the money, they’re never happy because money isn’t satisfying. satisfaction always relates to people you surround yourself with and how deep your relationships are. (this also means there’s no point in keeping your money so you can give it to me)
anyways, the cool part is: humans are like that in nature because we are made in the image of God. God wants us to accept him, and us to know him, and more than anything God wants us to have a relationship with him. WHAAAAAT.
ok peace ~sal
as you know i definitely think it is an art to look good while wearing tees and no make up. tbh, i’ve probably mastered it. totally just kidding. and this is why.
the other day i was wearing a normal vail t shirt, you know. I had worn it all day and honestly didn’t think much of it because this is a typical outfit i wear… shirt and leggings. easy, quick, hot. then i was snapchatting *cute* boy with this shirt on and he responds with… “did you just work out”. ok *cute* boy, if work out means walking to class then YES I DID WORK OUT. also at this point realized that by doing this i could also convince *cute* boy that i work out all the time and am in great shape… hm not a bad idea. hahaha joking. i realized that shirt+leggings = easy+quick+sweaty looking. anyways now i’m trying to look a little nicer/no t-shirts which is failing because i’m currently wearing a $5 long sleeved t shirt from walmart (which are the BEST by the way, i have one in every color). anyways, just wanted to pop in and say hello
ps side note: the waitress at ihop just came up to me and said it is OK to eat unhealthy. that’s RIGHT *cute* snapchat boy at least i LOOK like i’m in AWESOME SHAPE. HA. HA.
i think the other day for the first time i took the time to actually think about what the lord’s prayer means.
hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come
-holy is your name, we are in the devil’s kingdom right now, may god’s kingdom come
may thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
-god’s will is already done in heaven, it is up to us to complete his will here and we need to seek god to do that
give us this day our daily bread
-god provides us with the “daily bread”, our fulfillment of the day. i notice a direct correlation between how satisfied i feel with how much time i spend with god
forgive us of our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us
-forgiveness comes from the father to give and receive. please father help us mold us hearts and break them for what breaks yours
lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil
-the lord is my shield and will protect us
for thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever
-god rules and will rule forever til the end of time
