Maxo is awesome.
Well, I expect things to calm down, but I won’t turn down a prayer. So I’d appreciate it. Many thanks.
You must try harder.
I feel like I sell you a bit short on my current goings-on, so I’ll start there:
I’ve had a very, very busy and hectic past couple of weeks at work, but with perseverance and a lot of prayer (and facepalms and facedesks), I got through it. My family is alright. I think that they may be more “attached” to me than I am to them (I feel that I love them as much as they love me, but I need space a lot more than they do.) I’m hoping that I’ll be able to go about my life and live my dreams without forsaking or neglecting my family.
As for the verse, it is the influence of God that shapes our spiritual growth as Christians. God works through the Holy Spirit in order to guide our thoughts and actions. It’s that influence that others can see in us if we allow it to be seen.
I haven’t watched enough Fullmetal Alchemist to make the association…outside of looks, that is.
why did you post flutterskull on my wall son.
I think I have enough Pony gear with the prints, plushes, and DVDs.
I also prefer my Pony Pokemon with Fluttershy.
Twilight is still the cutest though.
I’ll second what Scratch said. I think that we have to conduct ourselves as being followers of Christ if that’s what we really are.
I think that there are times when someone offends us, and we think to somehow exact justice or revenge against them. This might seem obvious for some situations, but in situations where we (myself included) call smug atheists “smug atheists” when they say something against religion on the whole (or even against Christianity specifically,) I think we feel the need to begin to attack them instead of to defend ourselves (often times, the circumstances might call for no action or words at all.)
I guess I would ask for prayers for myself. I was a little ill earlier today, but I have to get some work done before work tomorrow. But most of all, I’d just ask for God’s Will to be done.
Nah, just me to my knowledge (perhaps one or two others.)
When you change your username and someone else takes that username after you, then they become (username-2). When you take that username back you become (username-3).
So when KYM had an event in the forum where we imitated various other users, I changed my name and changed it back after three other users chose the name “Verbose.” Making me Verbose-5.
I’m a strong, black woman who don’t need no man to work with.
EarthBound, eh? Well, Pokemon X and Y are coming out soon along with the 3D Zelda, and I’ve got other games I need to finish, so I probably wouldn’t play it anytime soon with my schedule.
But this isn’t the first near rave review I’ve gotten on Uprising, so I’ll have to bump it up to the top of my 3DS list.
Well, I’m all for Marth being dropped. I never liked him (I liked Roy better in Melee, I like Ike better in Brawl, and I’d like Lucina, Chrom, Ike, or Roy better than Marth in the Wii U version.
I haven’t played Kid Icarus, but it seems like I might like it (just for the dialogue I’ve heard from it.) So I can’t speak to any of the characters in that. But I would say that Magnus is probably a better bet than a secondary character from Fire Emblem.
The Pokémon Master thing isn’t undeserved. I do love my Pokiemanz, but there are a lot of other users who know a lot more about it than I do. I just got the title.
Apologies for the delayed response. I always like to make sure I give people a decent response instead of a brief one that I just crapped out.
“Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?”
What good does it do to worry?
I can’t remember the context here, and I think that’s certainly important, so I’ll just go with what I can pull (and still stay true to the tenets of the faith.)
There are times in the Bible where matters are ordered by priority. Don’t be concerned about specks in others’ eyes before you get to the plank in your own. Love God before all else and then your neighbor.
In this case, there’s no need to worry about something you’re not addressing yet. You can plan and prepare, but until you’re actually taking action towards something, there’s no need to expend emotional resources on it.
My prayer requests stand as they have for the past few weeks.
Uploaded an image to My Hand is a Dolphin.
I’ll try not to injure you, but you’re going to have to get Kirby to take his hand off of the trigger.
Years to come, eh?
Ah, you’ve returned for a cameo appearance?
I like her for her personality. All of the characters are well-written, and Chrom is included in that. But she comes off as a young lady who’s regal (being the daughter of who is eventually the equivalent of the king) and yet awkward (in bad fashion tastes and being so formal in speech that she asks for help with it.) She’s feminine (as shown by her physical features and interests outside of battle) as well as very aggressive (having a fighting style very similar to her fathers, tendency to break things and all.) She’s very determined (as shown by going back in time to avert a crisis with no means of returning to her time and by her in-battle text) and yet is very close to her family and friends (the support conversations with Chrom and clips where she reveals that she is Chrom’s daughter are both very sweet.)
You also have to consider a huge point in gaming demographics: She’s a woman as compared to a guy. It’s a bit more complex than hormonal, sex-driven men ogling her animated body though. She’s simply more endearing of a character in part due to her gender and her appearance.
She also has a pretty wicked sword stance.
Early in the game, a character called Marth helps out Chrom and your avatar character. The character turns out to be Chrom’s daughter from the future, Lucina.
The real Marth has been in the last few Smash bros., so you’d either have two Marth’s, or you’d spoil that for those wanting to play Awakening (although that has happened with Sheik before). Also, Lucina isn’t a main character, so she’d be the first to be in a Smash Bros. game without the game she’s having her as the main character.
Chrom the main character is more likely but Lucina is generally better liked.
A very interesting question below. I’ll have to follow it.
Anyway, on the Psalms verse, knowing what you’re supposed to do gives you direction. Even if you’re not quite sure of what to do, going by the word of God/Jesus would give you an idea of what to do or what not to do. Sorry that I don’t have my normal loquacious nature, but there are my thoughts.
My family is doing well. I think they’ve adjusted to me being away from home after being back at home for a several months.
The reason I “default” to just praying for God’s Will to be done, is because I have times where I’m not sure what to pray for. Some things seem to be what you need (i.e. getting the job that you’re going to an interview for tomorrow) when what God would have is something else (i.e. not getting this job, being able to have more time to figure out how you’re going to go about life, and getting another job that’s better suited for you a month or two later.)
I’m in one of those times. Things seem to be going really well, and I hope they stay that way. I try to stay within what I believe God would have me do, but in case I’m off base, I just ask for whatever God wants to be done.
