Welcome to 2012!!! This Year is gonna be an awesome year… I can feel it my bones.
First and foremost:
On 1/1/12 , the homie Nate G dropped a lil EP called “New Years With Nate G”. Its available at http://www.nategmusic.com the download and its absolutely FREE!
While I was enjoying the Cowboy game and getting my chill on, the WIFEY decides to say those words a guy hates to hear while watching the game… “Babe- wanna go get us something to eat?”. But, like a good husband, Phildawg is there (in a State Farm Commercial Voice). She originally wanted Chipotle, so did I, but unfortunately they were CLOSED!! Sucks- I know- why close at 10:00pm? Don’t they know there’s people out in this world (like me and Nick) who crave food after dinner time!? So, our second option was… Freebirds. I’ve been wanting to eat Freebirds since they built it next to the crib and I finally got my shot. I took one bite and made up mind instantly. As you can see, the burrito wasn’t even half eaten. If it was a Chipotle burrito I wouldn’t even have had time to take a pic. So, my fellow Americans, I say this to you “The Grass Is Not GREENER on the other side.”
We all have had those “What If?” thoughts but sometimes those “What Ifs” have a tendency to not be what we might have expected. If you are the type of person who was brought up in church and have been taught the ways of the Lord for your entire life, you probably have those “I wonder if the grass is greener on the other side” thoughts. I’m gonna go ahead and save you the trouble….its not.
“So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful naturea slave to the law of sin” Romans 7:21-25.
We know whats right, we know whats needs to be done, but we listen to more of what our flesh wants more than what our spirits needs. Whatever it is you think you want or need, if its not what the Lord wants for you then, my friend, all your doing is setting yourself up for failure… kinda like I was when I chose to eat Freebirds instead of just waiting on Chipotle.
