In need of prayer

23 November 2008
Sometime I let people know my mood. On FB I had the tag -In need of prayer. One of my long time school and you could say family friends sent me this Bible verse which helped to put things in perspective. This was a few months ago. I need to log these more often.

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.(1 Corinthians 9:24-27)

I have just re-read that verse. It is so true. Oh my days. I need to start running spiritually.

The Secret or is it?

I have partly read a book called The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. My friend noticed that I had been reading it and sent this message to me.

I have noticed you are reading quite alot of good books.Remeber those
books can really help you.Also i have noticed that one of you books is on the
secret. Those are univerasal laws that work for anyone that uses them. The bible
is also got these laws. God put them for us to use.I have watched The secret
Dvd. The only thing is these people use Gods law and claim all the gllory to
themselves as if they r gods themselves.I have done a little research on these
people they r into some funky stuff.What they say on the laws r true, that is as
far as it goes for me.It is fascinating.You will c it if you read the
bible.Jesus did these micracles by acknowedging the father & giving him the
glory.God of the universe is, is God all by himself. Adam & Eve claimed that
they want to be as God themselves to be come gods. This was in the garden by
listening 2 the serpent, thats when sin entered the world.We are created by God
& God gives us the ability 2 create.This what These people don't believe in
sin & we need a SAVIOUR.Thank God 4 Jesus that he came in fleshly form. The
sacrifice for mankind.I thought you might find this interesting.

God bless.

Now I haven't finished the book and might just get the dvd to watch. It just keeps telling me about the universe which conflicts with what I believe in. I have been reading it and wondering where is God in this. If I finish the book or watch the dvd I will indeed review it here.
