Miss California Sparks Furor With Gay Marriage Comments on Miss USA Telecast

Many of you have probably already heard about this, but for those who have not, you can go here , here, and here to read some articles.

Here is her question and answer:
When asked by judge Perez Hilton, an openly gay gossip blogger, whether she believed in gay marriage, Miss California, Carrie Prejean, said "We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite. And you know what, I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that's how I was raised."

My Thoughts

Something I am relearning is that I am in control of nothing! No matter what I do or how hard I try... I am never the one who is ultimately in control. To some that may sound like a bad thing. But to me, it gives me great comfort and peace.
I know that God is sovereign over all things and that He is working it all for my good and His own glory. ( Rom. 8:28)
This past Sunday I taught on Isaiah 45:1-13. God kept reminding the people that He is God and there is no other God besides Him. He formed everything. He made the heavens and the earth. He made us and He can do what He pleases with what He has created.
I am so thankful to know the the God of the universe care that much about me. He orchestrates all the events in my life from the small to the great.
May I keep learning this and stop trying to control things!

Girl Talk

I asked for the book Girl Talk for Christmas and my wonderful husband got it for me. I have been reading it and wanted to recommend it for mothers and daughters alike. It has been a good book for me in dealing with my relationship with my our mother and I can see where I will need to come back to it in the future when relating to my own daughter.

I think that this book is for mothers and daughters of all ages to read and discuss together.

You can get your own copy Here.

The other night we finally rented the movie Fireproof. I admit I was skeptical about watching it. Usually movies that are made through Christian organizations are cheesy, poor acting, or the story line is not that great. I had head reviews about this movie and wanted to see it, so we did.

I admit, I was surprised. It was a good movie. I will confess that some parts were cheesy, and some acting could have been better, there could have been more to the story- but it was a wholesome movie. I would recommend it to others to watch. You can read what others have said here, here, and here.

I do wish that the Gospel was more of a focus in the movie- in fact it should have been the focus. They depended a lot on love- but without the Gospel it is impossible to love that selfless love. We went to a wedding the other day and I was confronted with this problem there as well. The people getting married were believers, but there was no mention of the Gospel at their wedding. We are in such a "me" driven culture/sinful nature. We cannot find the strength or even the desire to love apart from Jesus through the Gospel.

The New Inductive Study Bible Give Away

Precept Ministries International is giving away Bibles and other Bible Studies this month.

Here is some info they sent me:

With all of the struggles and tension in the world today, is it any wonder that people become discouraged and depressed? Where do you turn for help? Who can you trust and believe? What is the truth?

Precept Ministries' mission is to establish people in God's Word. We help people discover God's Truth for themselves — real, enduring Truth. And we'd like to do that for you. That's why we're giving away 10 Bonded Leather New Inductive Study Bibles and 122 of our award-winning Bible Studies during the month of April.

The New Inductive Study Bible is different. Other study Bibles tell you what the commentators think the text means. The New Inductive Study Bible helps you discover for yourself what the text truly says and means. Learn the Inductive Bible Study Method with the New Inductive Study Bible’s instructions for studying the Bible inductively, including help with marking symbols and making lists. Each book of the Bible has individualized instructions to guide you on your journey and includes thought-provoking application questions. Charts, maps, timelines, and illustrations throughout the text also help you with each book of the Bible. Plus it includes a concordance, a harmony of the Gospels, Bible reading plans, a concise history of Israel and much more to enrich your Bible study.

Precept Ministries’ award-winning Inductive Bible Studies have helped millions of people around the world discover the truth of God’s Word for themselves. The studies cover the full breadth of the Books of the Bible as well as specific topics that meet each person’s particular need and application. Whether you are looking for a Bible Study to help you Discover God’s Truth for yourself or if you’re ready to go deeper into the Word of God with a group of friends or church members, Precept Ministries has what you’re looking for.
