Here’s something from my morning devotional readings:
Evil and injustice seem to have the upper hand in the world. LikeHabakkuk, Christians often feel angry and discouraged as they see what goes on. Habakkuk complained vigorously to God about the situation. God’s answer to Habakkuk is the same answer he would give us: “Be patient! I will work out my plans in my perfect timing.” It isn’t easy to be patient, but it helps to remember that God hates sin even more than we do. Punishment of sin will certainly come. As God told Habakkuk, “Wait patiently.” To trust God fully means to trust him even when we don’t understand why events occur as they do.
This is taken from this verse:
“This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.” — Habakkuk 2:3 NLT
How many times in my life have I tried so hard to do things on my own. I just need to accept what I can do and believe God will take care of everything else when the time is right.
Today I went to the Toyota dealership (which was only three miles from my new place which was nice) for a scheduled maintenance check up. After hitting over 5,000 miles, it was time for a check.
I got in at 9AM and waited for nearly two hours for them to take care of my car. But the service was good and my care checked out just fine. And since I bought my car at a Toyota dealership, the check up was free. I think these things last for two years.
And what’s even nicer is that my car has been really dirty since my move down here and they gave me a free car wash. Even better! Huzzah!!
For nearly 20 years of my life, the above video pretty much summed it up for me and church. I grew up in a Christian family and attended this Episcopal church in Chinatown, San Francisco. It was a community that basically had the same thing every Sunday.
It was stand, sit, kneel, hymn, lather, rinse, repeat. Every Sunday it was the same routine. It was boring. It was not inspiring.
Sunday school wasn’t much better either. It became a contest of who had more Bible knowledge than the next kid. I usually “knew” more and got my gold star next to my name. I could tell you everything about the Last Supper, the crucifixion and the resurrection. Asked me why Jesus did all that, I had no answer.
Battle of the Bay tonight! Go A’s!!!
This is one of the things about the Bay Area I am going to miss the most: The Battle of the Bay.
As a diehard A’s fan, one of the things I look forward to every year is the annual battle between the A’s and Giants. And in recent years since the Giants won the World Series, I’ve gotten a lot more annoyed with the Giants and this year I really want to see my A’s beat them.
I remember last year going to the game in AT&T Park and it was just hard to see the incompetent Bob Geren run the show. But when the A’s had their games at the Coliseum, it was pure joy seeing the A’s do the sweeping.

July 19, 2010. That was the day I made my first entry on this blog. Since then I have blogged about numerous things. Going from sports, faith, music and my life, I’ve talked about a lot on this blog.
I think that my growth as a person can be documented on this blog and now 500 posts later, I think I have matured a lot.
I’m glad I have this outlet to just really talk about the things in life I care about. Here’s to 500 and another 500 more in the future!
