Well, now that I finished sounding like a complete whiner, of which you are probably all tired of hearing from me. I can explain the day in more detail.
Last night the normal happened. I was told at 9 pm that we are going on a hike Saturday, I ask when and all I get is we don't know yet. Then by morning I'm supposed to get up early so we can leave at 9:30. No I wasn't told that time till it was to late for me to get ready. now I wasn't the only reason for us leaving late. but I'm not going to say any names. On the trip Nate explained a bunch of things about his radio.... well.... i only got like half of it. and then he showed me how it isn't smart to recharge my mp3 player with the battery i had in it. It says right on the side, may explode or leak if recharged... *phew* .... Chris almost got hit 2 times on the ride there once we entered Ottawa. The Hike wasn't the same as the Youth Group hikes. No racing after Ben to keep him with the group. no slowing down to ask parents for some water. no such thing as short way. you know all those things that make the youth hike what it is. :) We Climbed King mountain. walked around Pink lake, and stood at the different look outs along the sides. to avoid cig smoke above I climbed down each look out and stayed on the side of it. then came back up to the surprise of some people. Then what we had when we got home was a cook out, in which I think I outdid my normal meal..... I must of had more then half of a 2 liter bottle of rootbeer. almost around the same time... meaning I don't feel to good.... kinda like touch my stomach and I will probably hurl... "note to self: don't pick something off the ground with a full stomach of carbonated drink".
Now that everyone is gone I would be able to think more, but I've already written a post so I think I'm done. Good Night. Hopefully mine won't be a exploding night....

More and more of my days seem to be taken up with something else. I don't think I have had a day for my self in months. and due to many things on my mind. Work, Families spiritual condition, my future for God, friends needing me, people to witness to. Pray that I keep a good mind thru all this and don't try doing something without thinking first. the song keeps popping into my mind.
I am not skilled to understand what God hath willed, What God hath planned, I only know at his right hand is one who is my Saviour.
When people look into the Word what do they see. I think on that when I go to church and see someone new. I think what could God do for them, what do they think of the singing of the praying, of this Holy book being preached. how are we a witness to them. do we show as a Godly example? do other see Christ living in us. when a Christian looks into the word what do u see. I see his Holy book opened which was so wonderfully kept and bought for our teaching. I have been reading thru proverbs a good bit on wisdom. thru these readings God has renewed that mind of his word for it says, the Wise man hears instruction and the foolish turnth away. I had before in my mind that (I've heard these things before or I'm only hearing the same thing over and over) But God used this conference used these readings, that I'm hearing it moreso. He's speaking to me in a great way that makes me want to sing more and more. last night was a great blessing of his power in songs. i woke this morning at 5:30 not knowing why. but the only thought that came to mind without even trying was singing to my self, was praying, I had dreams before hand of God doing a mighty work in all of us. each of us praising him thru the whole day. and if it was my choice I would extend the conference another week. I've removed the web browser from my computer and I'm keeping my time on games and things to a small amount. also I've removed any games that have any aspect of magic in it, music that I shouldn't listen to. and also dealing with things that have been bothering me in a more "God's in control and head of my life" kind of way. I have faith and hope of revival coming and also that we will be used. (those of our youth) in a mighty way for God.

Another person who was a Christian, who I've had biblical conversations and has show to be a christian. since i have been getting away from the computer the more often and left something that was taking a good bit of my time. he said that the lord has used me to show him to also use his time better and planning his days out for the Lord more. praise the lord.
Also for those who think I'm only wasting time on the computer playing games, no i am not. I spend most of my day witnessing to people. and i know God is using it. Yes I am planning my days out better too.
The Conference is going quite well. and i know God is moving. with us and i think it was planned good. Pastor David, and Pastor Scott. have been preaching and I've enjoyed it a good bit. I am praying and hoping that God will do a great change in our lives and quicken us.
Come, Thou Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it,
Mount of Thy redeeming love.
Sorrowing I shall be in spirit,
Till released from flesh and sin,
Yet from what I do inherit,
Here Thy praises I’ll begin;
Here I raise my Ebenezer;
Here by Thy great help I’ve come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood;
How His kindness yet pursues me
Mortal tongue can never tell,
Clothed in flesh, till death shall loose me
I cannot proclaim it well.
O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.
O that day when freed from sinning,
I shall see Thy lovely face;
Clothed then in blood washed linen
How I’ll sing Thy sovereign grace;
Come, my Lord, no longer tarry,
Take my ransomed soul away;
Send thine angels now to carry
Me to realms of endless day.
