NIPTO, Day 236


Today: School. (Not very productive school. No clue why. I think I haven't had deadlines for the past two days and it makes me lazy. That's my guess. So I guess I do have some clue!)
Babysitting. (Got schooled by a nine year old in football. But I guess it's okay. Because he's on a football team. And I've never played football before.)
Annnd this. (Not a whole lot exciting going on. I know. OH! I got a message on facebook about a change of plans for a youth group event. And (And I QUOTE... or copy/paste) "In an attempt to fight off sicknesses (such as Mad Cow, and SARS) as long as possible, we are moving our festivities indoors!"
HAH. I love Brandon. But it was a welcome change to being outside for roughly three hours tomorrow night. In the cold and rain. (It's supposed to be about 40 and rainy tomorrow night. NOT fun.)
We're going to watch a movie and eat pizza and line dance and do all sorts of fun things tomorrow night. I'm pumped! It should be super fun! (I will, of course, take pictures!)

DINNER will be ready soon. (Shrimp and pasta with mushrooms and onions. YUM!)

[It's 9 o'clock on a Saturday...] Any guesses as to what I'm listening to =P
I feel very random right now. Bwahhhhhhh. hah.

Alrighty. Dinner's over. It was good... annnd I think I'm supposed to be doing Tarbucks with Kayt tonight? Haven't worked the details out yet...

Soo NIPTO? Or walk? or NIPTO?

Walk. Then I talked to Kayt for a while, got the visitor form for homecoming, came home and played guitar for a while, and now Mom and I are watching Emma. Ohhhhhh my. This movie is insane. I need to read the book so I really get the plot. (I don't especially get it since I'm only half paying attention.)
And now the movie is over and I need to go to bed.
But this still isn't done.
I am super good at procrastinating!

NIPTO. (Please don't feel like you need to read this. I'm realizing that it's kinda pointless for me to blog through what areas God gave to what parts of Israel... I'll find something better for tomorrow.)
Joshua 13:8-33
8 The other half of Manasseh, the Reubenites and the Gadites had received the inheritance that Moses had given them east of the Jordan, as he, the servant of the LORD, had assigned it to them.
 9 It extended from Aroer on the rim of the Arnon Gorge, and from the town in the middle of the gorge, and included the whole plateau of Medeba as far as Dibon, 10 and all the towns of Sihon king of the Amorites, who ruled in Heshbon, out to the border of the Ammonites. 11 It also included Gilead, the territory of the people of Geshur and Maacah, all of Mount Hermon and all Bashan as far as Salecah- 12 that is, the whole kingdom of Og in Bashan, who had reigned in Ashtaroth and Edrei and had survived as one of the last of the Rephaites. Moses had defeated them and taken over their land. 13 But the Israelites did not drive out the people of Geshur and Maacah, so they continue to live among the Israelites to this day.

Okay. This basically tells where they lived. And conquered. And stuff.

 14 But to the tribe of Levi he gave no inheritance, since the offerings made by fire to the LORD, the God of Israel, are their inheritance, as he promised them.

The tribe of Levi didn't get an inheritance. Because their offerings were their inheritance. Which doesn't quite make sense to me, but I guess I don't have to understand everything I read.

 15 This is what Moses had given to the tribe of Reuben, clan by clan:
 16 The territory from Aroer on the rim of the Arnon Gorge, and from the town in the middle of the gorge, and the whole plateau past Medeba 17 to Heshbon and all its towns on the plateau, including Dibon, Bamoth Baal, Beth Baal Meon, 18Jahaz, Kedemoth, Mephaath, 19 Kiriathaim, Sibmah, Zereth Shahar on the hill in the valley, 20 Beth Peor, the slopes of Pisgah, and Beth Jeshimoth 21 —all the towns on the plateau and the entire realm of Sihon king of the Amorites, who ruled at Heshbon. Moses had defeated him and the Midianite chiefs, Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur and Reba—princes allied with Sihon—who lived in that country. 22 In addition to those slain in battle, the Israelites had put to the sword Balaam son of Beor, who practiced divination. 23 The boundary of the Reubenites was the bank of the Jordan. These towns and their villages were the inheritance of the Reubenites, clan by clan.

This is what God gave to the tribe of Ruben.

 24 This is what Moses had given to the tribe of Gad, clan by clan:
 25 The territory of Jazer, all the towns of Gilead and half the Ammonite country as far as Aroer, near Rabbah; 26 and from Heshbon to Ramath Mizpah and Betonim, and from Mahanaim to the territory of Debir; 27 and in the valley, Beth Haram, Beth Nimrah, Succoth and Zaphon with the rest of the realm of Sihon king of Heshbon (the east side of the Jordan, the territory up to the end of the Sea of Kinnereth). 28 These towns and their villages were the inheritance of the Gadites, clan by clan.

What God gave Gad... 

 29 This is what Moses had given to the half-tribe of Manasseh, that is, to half the family of the descendants of Manasseh, clan by clan:
 30 The territory extending from Mahanaim and including all of Bashan, the entire realm of Og king of Bashan—all the settlements of Jair in Bashan, sixty towns, 31 half of Gilead, and Ashtaroth and Edrei (the royal cities of Og in Bashan). This was for the descendants of Makir son of Manasseh—for half of the sons of Makir, clan by clan.

What God gave Manasseh, or half of Manasseh.

 32 This is the inheritance Moses had given when he was in the plains of Moab across the Jordan east of Jericho. 33 But to the tribe of Levi, Moses had given no inheritance; the LORD, the God of Israel, is their inheritance, as he promised them.

That's what God gave to certain tribes in the plains east of Jericho. And again, the tribe of Levi didn't get an inheritance. Because God was their inheritance. 

God is our inheritance. That we get now. That's like the prodigal son asking for the money now and getting it. Do we waste God on stupid things? (There are no stupid prayers, just so you know.) But do we forget about God during the stupid little things in life? The things that bother us. The things that we really should "bother" God about? Even though he's never bothered by us. He longs to hear the little thing that happen in our lives. Sure, he knows that they happen, but he wants to hear about them from us. "Get our perspective on things," if you will. 
Tell God the silly things. He wants to hear them. 
Don't waste the time that you have with God here on earth (even though it's short lived and heaven will be much better). Make the most of it. Remember that God is our inheritance.

YEAH! (Wooooooo inspiration! haha)

I'm going to go to bed now. 
Practice PSAT in the morning, Karen girls in the afternoon, and the Fall extravaganza partay at The620!
Should be a blast!
See yas later!
