i am second website

I saw this cool site on another blog and thought I’d share it with everyone… if there’s anyone left who checks this blog.

Check out Brian “Head” Welch’s video. He was the lead guitarist for Korn, and to say he lived the rockstar life is an understatement. I LOVE his opening statement,

“…ok, I’m gonna accept Christ in front of everbody right now, then I’m gonna go home and snort drugs until I don’t wanna do them anymore.”

Not the typical salvation experience… that’s probably why I liked it so much.

Here’s a preview –

“For my life it is the simple revelation that God’s will is most often found when need and ability collide.” Brian Seay

more from another other than me

Since I’m still not hitting on much, here’s a couple of quotes that I found interesting:

Good, as it ripens, becomes continually more different not only from evil but from other good.

Earth, I think, will not be found by anyone to be in the end a very distinct place. I think earth, if chosen instead of Heaven, will turn out to have been, all along, a region of Hell: and earth, if put second to Heaven, to have been from the beginning a part of Heaven itself.

– C. S. Lewis, The Great Divorce

These came from the 3 pg. preface… expect more.

You think so?

My brain is not hitting on much these days. I guess I’m lacking the energy to flex it. So, I’m resorting to borrowing from the more motivated… more disciplined… more conditioned brains of others.

I personally don’t believe in an intervening God… a God that shows up when we need him and disappears when we don’t. I believe in miracle in the sense that everything is miracle, that God is so interwoven in our world and life that it is all miraculous. The very special times when we conclude God has intervened are actually moments when our blinders have been taken off and we see what has always been. What we call a “miracle” is actually, in my opinion, an intersection of God’s constant activity and our comprehension of it.

That first sentence caused me to bristle up a bit, but then I read the rest… nice perspective.

What do you think? That’s if you, unlike me, can muster the energy to flex a little brain muscle. 🙂
