Whom Do You Worship?

This question was posed to us in a lesson on Sunday.

How would you answer this question? Initially, it may seem easy to answer this question.

"I serve God, of course!"

Well my friends, actions speak a lot louder than words. I did some serious reflections about this question the past few days. If I truly serve God, how do I serve him? What am I doing each day to serve him? 

Well, I wake up in the morning feeling like P-diddy, get my glasses, I'm out the door, I'm gonna hit this city...

Yup...already usually forget morning prayer, scripture study, meditation, quiet time. Not a really good job worshiping God. I get to school and work, and go until five usually every day. I come home, do homework, watch some TV shows, hit the sack.

I'll tell you what, I serve my selfish needs a lot more than God these days. But that's alright because I am going to change that!

Life is awesome. It's all about change. 

Whom Do You Worship? Whom Do You Serve?

The sad blog

Do you come to this blog and go "oh my gosh this guy has GOT IT GOING ON!"

I hope so. No, actually I really don't. I hope you go. "This guy is honest. This guy cares. This guy gets it."

Does that means this is a depressing blog? Nahh. But guess what? It follows my life, and sometimes I'm down, and so my blog will be down.

Some days will be really good so my blog will be...not so down!

What I'm trying to say is this...watch this video...and do this every day and get back on track.

2.Read Your Scriptures
3.Pray Again

A day/hour/minute at a time

"Yeah, I just need to take things a day at a time I guess." -Me

"Maybe you need to start taking things an hour at a time?" -Friend

It is times like that where I go, "whoaaaaa, you are so smart."

Seriously, why do people say to take things a day at a time? My psycho brain can't handle that!

When I try to take things a day at a time, I go INSANE!

But, maybe I could handle an hour at a time? I mean think about it. Hour by hour. Breath by breath. (not that I only take breaths every hour....)

I mean, this won't work for everyone, but these 24 hours went by a lot smoother than two days ago.

Every night this weekend was Friday night

Friday Night Lights, that is.

You guys, I teared up. Who the heck tears up during a TV show? Besides girls watching The Bachelor.  Seriously, Friday Night Lights is so real to me. It's becoming a little insane.

I had a pretty bad week, so starting Friday night, I turned on season 4 of Friday Night Lights and didn't stop....until I finished season 4.

Talk about an emotional roller coaster ride. Does Dillon, TX really exist? I just Googled it. It doesn't.


I was trying to book a ticket to go visit just now.

I was sitting in Elder's Quorum Presidency meeting on Sunday and I was giving the presidency some pointers on how to turn on the swag...because I learned a lot this weekend watching Friday Night Lights.

I'm telling you guys-this is real life.

JustIn My Valentine's Day

First class was cancelled. And guess what else?! My second was one too! (Not really, I just slept through the second one....oops.) I've never done that. Hashtag rebel on Valentine's.

I did go to my next two classes...alas the loves of my life were not in there.

Maybe next year.

I went to work and had an AMAZING bag of spicy ketchup chips. Yes.

I came home and watched some Hulu and studied for my economics exam.

It's 10:04 pm.

I'm happy to be alive.

#single and loving life

*Thank you valentine for sending me this today. You know who you are gurl.

What an awesome day.

I had the chance to go see a lecture from David and Chelom Leavitt. They are both graduates from BYU's Law School and work closely with Ukraine.

They gave such an awesome talk about the Orange Revolution. They were there when it was all going down, and it was SO cool to hear about their experience. It was so inspiring. It also made me really homesick for Ukraine.

The coolest part of the presentation was when they talked about their experience with President Yuschenko--the President of Ukraine. He came to visit their family here in Utah and they showed us a lot of pictures of his time here. It was so cool! I had no idea he came here to Utah! He also had a chance to visit the MTC while he was here and he loved it.

Viktor Yuschenko had a chance to visit the MTC while he was here and it was so neat to hear how much he enjoyed it.

JustIn Today

The title of this blog is JustIn My Day so I figured I'd write about my day.

8:00 am - class. Managerial Economics. That class is ruff.
9:30 am - class. Strategy. That class is ALL busy work and then Seinfeld vids during the class. Not complaining.
11:00- I didn't wake up in time to pack a lunch so I bought a quesadilla from the Business School Blue Line. Nice name eh? They were so busy...so they let my quesadilla go through the oven and it rolled over and burned and started a fire...so then they had to remake it.
12:30- I made a website for my internet marketing class, which was cancelled.
2:00- Work. Prelaw Advising.
5:00-Home to watch The Following. Messed up TV people. Messed up.
Rest of the night was homework and stuff.

In semi-exciting news I took out the trash cans out and I swear I saw someone breaking into a car. NBD though...until he started walking towards me. Every scary movie started going through my head so I ran inside.

The End. (I hope).

Be Content

Right now I serve as a counselor in the Elder's Quorum Presidency. I love it. I love talking about gospel related topics and how we can just be better people.

Today, one of us talked about this talk given in General Conference. The talk was entitled Content with the Things Allotted unto Us by Neal A. Maxwell. What a great talk.

My life continues to move at a quick pace, and yet today I decided to take the time to just sit and watch this talk- do nothing else, but sit and watch. I was amazed at the peace that this talk gave to me on this day.

I wanted to share it with you. Happy Sabbath.

"The Lord knows our circumstances and the intents of our hearts, and surely the talents and gifts He has given us. He is able to gauge perfectly how we have performed within what is allotted to us, including by lifting up some of the many surrounding hands that hang down." Neal A Maxwell
