Am I Glorifying God?

         "Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit
          within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,
          for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body."
           - 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

In this world it's easy to forget that I am not my own. It's easy to brush off the Holy
Spirit's warnings (at least for a little while!) and explain away things which are known
to me as not only inglorious to God, but even as sin.

Anyway, We all had a great time just talking and watching the elks. Well, here's some

We had plenty of food!

Faith in the Valley

"Saline Valley" by Kirk Kittell on Flickr

Lots of times, I think we Christians have a tendency to, how shall I say it, cling to
our "mountaintop experiences" and despair when those lofty feelings leave and
we find ourselves right smack dab in the middle of everyday life, with all its cares
and, often, just plain blandness. We may wonder how in the world God can use
us in such an ordinary and sometimes dark place.
