I feel like it's been forever since I've posted... and it has been a good 36 hours... which is too long if you ask me =P
Thank You For Hearing Me (Did NOT notice that those two were next to each other until RIGHT now. =P)

"This everlasting and compunctious study of duty--duty to everybody, everywhere, every day--it keeps you questioning all the while, rasping in a torment of debates and compunctions, till you almost groan aloud for weariness. It is as if your life itself were slavery. And then you say, with a sigh, `Oh, if I had nothing to do but just to be with Christ personally, and have my duty solely as with Him, how sweet and blessed and secret and free would it be.' Well, you may have it so; exactly this you may do and nothing more!
Sad mistake that you should ever have thought otherwise! What a loss of privilege has it been! Come back then to Christ, retire into the secret place of His love, and have your whole duty personally as with Him. Only then will you make this very welcome discovery, that, as you are personally given up to Christ's person, you are going where He goes, helping what He does, keeping ever dear, bright company with Him, in all His motions of good and sympathy, refusing even to let Him suffer without suffering with Him. And so you will do a great many more duties than you even think of now; only they will all be sweet and easy and free, even as your love is."
There was not a verse in Revelation 17 that stuck out to me, but the chapter struck me because it is not a pretty picture. A lot of times the bible is portrayed as a book that can and should be read to children... when adapted. But the bible isn't really that innocent. There's a lot of gory stuff in there and I think that's something that we need to remember.

Luke 5:11- So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed [Jesus]. They left EVERYTHING. Everything. They left their livelihood, families, friends, everything. To follow Jesus. I wish I had the guts to do that.

"Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!"
13Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing:
"To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!"
These verses are also reminiscent of Revelation song which is based off of... you guessed it: Revelation. These verses are reminders of how holy and wonderful God is. They remind us that he deserves all of our praise. I love these verses. That's about it. haha
Last night after I finished my NIPTO readings, I was reading the Heavenly Man and I saw this quote and it was kind of amazing.
"I learned that if we obey God miracles will happen, no matter what circumstances we find ourselves in"
- Brother Yun
That's the thought I'm going to leave you with for... *ahem* today.

"Holy, holy, holy
Because you got to me, in a way words can't describe
I'm getting into you
Because I've got to be
You're essential to survive
I'm going to love you with my life
