Hello Day 30: Amos- EYES
How are you treating the people around you? In God's eyes, that's an indicator of your true spiritual condition.
“Therefore, I will bring upon you all the disasters I have announced.
Prepare to meet your God in judgment, you people of Israel!” Amos 4:12
Do what is good and run from evil
so that you may live!
Then the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies will be your helper,
just as you have claimed. Amos 5:14
Instead, I want to see a mighty flood of justice,
an endless river of righteous living. Amos 5:24

So if you did not realize from my last post well it snowed here! I love the snow its so pretty and cold and awesome! Plus with snow we have not had school in 3 days crazy huh? So i have not really done much of anything but play in the snow, sleep, eat, and probably drive my parents insane. Well for one of my new years resolution i was going to "be healthy" yeah thats gone... It worked for like a week then i lost motivation, like most. My parents as you can see in the pictures above are super motivated! My mom is of course my mom she does all the things a mom does times a billion. She does not do running and stuff like my dad but she usually walks at least 3 miles a day. My mom loves dogs so i guess that is what motivates her she walks the dogs all the time at 4am before she goes to work... yes she has a full time job and at 5pm after. How she does it all i have not the clue. She also has a blog so if you want to see what she's up to with the dogs go for it! http://4dogcraziness.blogspot.com/
My dad is a runner/swimmer/cyclist. He does triathlons but not just those he has bikes hundreds of miles and i mean hundreds i don't know how he does it either. Oh yeah and guess what he manages to have a full time job as well. I would have to say i have supersonic parents! Geezz i love them!! Well back to the point about my motivation. I am a teenager so of course i am going to be like i really want to be skinny blah blah blah. Well its stops there... i hope. I want to stop thinking about that and think i want to run 5 miles this week. Have different motivations for myself. I really want to be like my dad and just be able to go to the park and run 9 miles if i want to. Or wake up in the morning and bike 30 miles for fun. I want to be fit and healthy and enjoy it so i can be spontaneous and be like "hey i am going to hike a mountain today because i am fit enough to do that". So my journey will start Wednesday and i am planing on making a real change. But i will keep you all updated on the bad or good. But of course i got motivated through some art so i made some pieces to go with today. :)

Hey everyone happy new year!! I am excited for a great new year to come! So today in the book of Joel there were many prophets who committed some specific sins of Jewish of people. But Joel simply called for repentance from God. Though God judges sin, He always offers a way out - in our time, through Jesus. So today in my art i used an exit sign because its the way out. And God always offers away out when we sin. He is such a great God it amazes me every single day how great He is in every situation. Today i also made a video of just a little process of making a simple piece of work for 66 Words. In any video i make the songs i put are the ones i'm listening to while working... so al you see i used the beetles. Plus they are amazing musicians. I hope you enjoy!
Hello Day 28: Hosea - FAITHFUL
So today i made a video! So if you are reading this from facebook you can either click the link to my blog or check it out on youtube. I have never made a video before like this and i used a crappy camera because my mom's nice one does not take video. So thank God i have a job i will be starting soon so i can buy myself a nice digital SLR with HD video on it. That will be SWEET! Well anyways today in Hosea marries a women who cheats on him. In this book it talked about God's warnings for disobedience as well as His promises of blessing from repentance. I thought that was a good part for me. About God's blessing because obviously i am not married or do any of that stuff. So i wanted to make the work more about God's faithfulness, because in any and every situation we should rely on God. So as you can see in the video!! That God is faithful, even when His people aren't and He's always ready to forgive.
The LORD says, "Then I will heal you of your faithlessness; my love will know no bounds, for my anger will be gone forever Hosea 14:4
