The End

Well, I'm ending this blog. I feel that I can no longer honor God with it and it is just an unfinished work that is giving no fruit. As now this blog is closed. I thank all of my readers of the last two years and I hope to stay in conntact with you via email. Thank you again and God bless. In Christ alone, Josh Martin

Hi everyone,
I didn't forget about you or the blog challenge, but there are three weeks left in the semester which means that it is finals time and I need to do schoolmost of the time. I will post again soon. In three weeks at the latest. I have found a little time to skim your blogs and attempt to keep upish with them.
Anywho, that's all I have.

In Christ alone,

A Craft Tutorial

So to make kraft you go to the store, buy a kraft dinner and come home. Turn on the stove and boil water. Put the kraft in the water and let it cook. then you eat it.
Wait, what?
That kind of craft. Got it.
Alright, so you take the box from your kraft dinner and you cut it up till it looks like something and then you throw it away. Thats what you do with regular crafts, right?

In Christ alone,

A country I would want to visit some day

I don't want to leave America. Honestly, I would be fine never going to another country.
If I had to go, I would want to go to England. To go antique book shopping would be one thing I would love to do. I have a great love for books, contrary to popular belief. Books really are wonderful and even though I cant fly through a 300 page book in a day, reading is one of my absolute favorite things to do.

A tradition or custom that I think should have survived till today.

On word:
That was a great idea. Two guys want a girl, they, decide to grab long pointy sticks get on horses and charge at each other as fast as they can, and so it ends. Winner gets the girl.
Okay, maybe not the best idea ever, but still exciting.
Alright, the one that I think should still be around is Courting!
Yes, there are people who still court, but dating is so rampant, its ridicules. I went to Elitch Gardens a few years ago on homeschool day when all the "good" kids were supposed to be out. I saw two kids who couldn't have been older than 10 making out in line for the Ferris wheel. It was the worst thing I had ever seen. What happened to the days where I guy would nicely ask a girl to court him and they wouldn't kiss until their wedding? I think it would be fine for the two of them to still get together and have a jolly old time, but do so morally.

Post some of my own art

I don't draw and I don't paint. The only art I do is Martial.
However, I did have to do a drawing for a class last year, and I did a doodle for my french class this year.

Tell me what you think. I know they are awful, but that's all I draw.

Write about something you feel strongly about.

Hi everyone,
I'm back. It hasn't been as long this time, but I'm still getting back into school, so I'm still fixing my schedule.

Seeking Wisdom and Counsel:

I'm sure we have all come to a cross roads before and didn't know what to do, right? Should I go to college? Should I get a job? Should I get married? No matter what the cross roads you have been at, it never hurts to have help. There are always people to turn to.

No. 1. If you don't know who to turn to, God is always ready to help. "Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrew 4:16 He will never turn you down. He wont always answer right away, but wait upon the Lord.

No. 2. Your Pastor/Elder or a teacher you really respect. I have done this many times and I always enjoy the counsel they give me.

No. 3. Lastly, a close friend. They wont have as good of answer as God, and probably not as good as your Pastor/Elder/Teacher, but they can offer great advice. And you might feel more comfortable talking to them.

I'm asuming that you talk to your parents about whatever this is anyway.

In Christ alone,
Josh Martin

Very late, but it did happen.

Sorry I haven't been around much. With Christmas and and new years, I was really busy, then school started again and I had to get back into the swing of things. Now I am here and will hopefully be doing the challenge every two days again.

This time instead of saying what God has showed me over the last year (which would be enough to fill books) I am going to share what my theme for this semester is going to be.

Psalm 56

1 Be merciful to me, O God, for man would swallow me up;

Fighting all day he oppresses me.

2 My enemies would hound me all day,

For there are many who fight against me, O Most High.
3 Whenever I am afraid,

I will trust in You.

4 In God (I will praise His word),

In God I have put my trust;

I will not fear.

What can flesh do to me?
5 All day they twist my words;

All their thoughts are against me for evil.

6 They gather together,

They hide, they mark my steps,

When they lie in wait for my life.

7 Shall they escape by iniquity?

In anger cast down the peoples, O God!
8 You number my wanderings;

Put my tears into Your bottle;

Are they not in Your book?

9 When I cry out to You,

Then my enemies will turn back;

This I know, because God is for me.

10 In God (I will praise His word),

In the LORD (I will praise His word),

11 In God I have put my trust;

I will not be afraid.

What can man do to me?

12 Vows made to You are binding upon me, O God;

I will render praises to You,

13 For You have delivered my soul from death.

Have You not kept my feet from falling,

That I may walk before God

In the light of the living?
God showed me this one Sunday morning and I latched onto it. I am making this my theme for the semester. Verses 3 and 4 are my favorite! I can't find words to explain, by they really speak to me.
In Christ alone,
Josh Martin
