Friday Finds

Note: The remainder of my Choosing Gratitude study has been postponed until further notice. I am now at seminary and, as time permits, my blog readers will certainly be given a glimpse into what I’m studying here.

I recently received an invite to Spotify, and have a Meredith Andrews playlist that I’ve been enjoying listening to. Here are a couple of her songs that are particularly meaningful:

Treasure – Grasping the truth proclaimed in this song is the reason that I am here. There’s no lesson that could be greater.

Never Move On – It’s all about Him.

Last Friday, the International Literacy Training Institute ended. The day was full of celebration, hence no post was made. There are pictures from the 5-week course on Flickr.

My former piano teacher and his son, who form the group Ryan and Ryan, create some very entertaining videos.

I am currently reading God’s Lesser Glory by Bruce Ware in preparation for an upcoming class, and when I heard this song, it seemed to go right along with the book!

Have you ever asked God for something and realized His answer was not what you expected?

Do You Realize?

“Were you a likely candidate for salvation?  Yet didn’t God save you?  And while he may have used some human instrument, don’t you see that he would have saved you with or without any instrument?  And haven’t you seen other ‘impossible’ brothers and sisters delivered likewise by the incredible power of the invisible God?

Do you realize from whence you came?  You were in the grip of hell.  Demons had wrapped their chains about you.  The god of this world had blinded your understanding.  Yet God struck off your chains and the face of Christ illumined your soul.  The damned around you are no more damned than you were, their chains no thicker, their darkness no deeper.  Nor is the power of Christ to save them one whit less.”

John White, The Golden Cow (Downers Grove, 1979), pages 151-152.

Was yesterday Friday? Oops. My lack of posting was not due to lack of content, I assure you. Sometimes my brain acts like a bucket with a hole in the bottom, I fear. Anyway, here are the links for this week:

One-eyed Cat by Jenny and Tyler
Regardless of what you think about their style, you’ve got to admit this is super cute!

True and Better
This sermonette by Tim Keller absolutely blew me away. Watch it.

Do You Have Something To Say?
“Parents shouldn’t feel the pressure to be arm-chair philosophers in order to speak into the minds and hearts of children. But maybe they should feel pricked enough to spend 20 minutes a day reading C. S. Lewis or Tim Keller.”

What Lucky People Do Different
“Unlucky people miss chance opportunities because they are too focused on looking for something else. They go to parties intent on finding their perfect partner, and so miss opportunities to make good friends. They look through the newspaper determined to find certain job advertisements and, as a result, miss other types of jobs. Lucky people are more relaxed and open, and therefore see what is there, rather than just what they are looking for.”

The Big Picture: Pakistan
Amazing photographs! The people are beautiful! What adds to the meaningfulness of the images is that I am familiar with most of the cities in which they were shot. I lived there!

I’ve been wanting to start this feature on my blog for quite some time. Though I can’t promise that it will be weekly, I will do my best to do it as often as possible.

Rather than constantly bombard my followers on Facebook and Twitter with links that I find interesting, I will share them in this “Friday Finds” feature on my blog. Enjoy, and I would love to know what you think!
