Title Pending....

 Hello there long time no see....you look very stunning if I might say so myself, did you do something new with your hair? Really you didn't? Well it looks great anyways!

I don't enjoy starting out with the bible so much, so this will be my intro into the verse I guess...
So I have been jumping around the Bible a lot, but keep coming back to Job for some reason. But I was reading this evening, and these couple of verses really stuck out to me and made me ponder life and such.... but anyways here it is....

1Then Job answered and said: 2"Truly I know that it is so: But how can a man be in the right before God? 3If one wished to contend with him, one could not answer him once in a thousand times. 4He is wise in heart and mighty in strength—who has hardened himself against him, and succeeded?— 5he who removes mountains, and they know it not, when he overturns them in his anger, 6who shakes the earth out of its place, and its pillars tremble; 7who commands the sun, and it does not rise; who seals up the stars; 8who alone stretched out the heavens.

I apologize, tonight for some reason I am not feeling up to par, but i really wanted to post tonight so....don't be too hyper critical...Anyways, I really love these verses, because it truly does put things into perspective. (at least for me it does) I got goosebumps when I read these verses, but verse three in particular... "If one wished to contend with him, one could not answer him once in a thousand times." It makes my mind explode! (not literally...that would get quite messy...) I think a lot of the time I just try to rely on myself for answers, or solutions to problems in my life, but these verses kinda were telling me that I am really powerless by myself (insert some cheezy song about being powerless without God that like the christian version of kids bop came out with years and years ago...) But all joking aside I think one thing that this is telling me is that A.) I could never EVER be even close to God's level, which kind of sounds like a no brainer, but in everyday life I forget this and try to rely solely on myself, and not God.
B.) I sometimes try and tell myself that I know what's best for my life, and do stupid stuff, but this is kinda telling me that well....I'm wrong..haha

Well thanks guys, I will have a fun post on Late Night TV coming out soon, so mark it on your calendars...or not....either way, but thanks again and thanks for taking time out of your busy (or not so busy) schedule/lives to read this...(or just skim until the end...either way)

words words words

Hey gang it has been at least a month since I last posted....i know y'all have been on the edge of your seats waiting for my next post to come out (thick sarcasm). A whole bunch has happened since my last post, like christmas break, christmas itself, and i guess some other stuff too...  anyways This little anecdote kind of ties into the Christmas theme (kind of a stretch if I do say so myself), But here you go.

      Well here it goes...I was about to fall asleep tonight, and as I laid my head down, I began to think of how ungrateful I am. This thought has been lingering in the back of my head for quite some time I suppose, but I think it really was something I wanted to talk about tonight. I think we have all heard the speech, about how America is the best country on Earth and how we are blessed to live here (maybe not.. , but I have at least) but I think because we were raised in this country in this day and age, we are just used to having an excess of stuff, and it isn't normal for us to not have more than enough things. But I think I am starting to get a little side tracked, back to my story.... I thought about just how much I have and how I don't deserve any of it. I think I never slow down enough to realize that I am blessed beyond belief! I am just in awe of how much God has given me. I think the most humbling part is that I don't deserve a single thing....I have recently been reading Job, and the thing that amazes me the most is that after everything Job loved was taken away from him, he worshipped God!! here is the verse if your interested, and if your'e not then you can just skip down to the next paragraph:

Job 1:13-22

[13] Now there was a day when his sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother's house, [14] and there came a messenger to Job and said, “The oxen were plowing and the donkeys feeding beside them, [15] and the Sabeans fell upon them and took them and struck down the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” [16] While he was yet speaking, there came another and said, “The fire of God fell from heaven and burned up the sheep and the servants and consumed them, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” [17] While he was yet speaking, there came another and said, “The Chaldeans formed three groups and made a raid on the camels and took them and struck down the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.” [18] While he was yet speaking, there came another and said, “Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother's house, [19] and behold, a great wind came across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young people, and they are dead, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

[20] Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head and fell on the ground and worshiped. [21] And he said, “Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked shall I return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.” 
[22] In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrong. 

If you read the verse above cool, but if not that is fine too, but I guess what I am trying to get at is that I am truely blessed, and deserve none of what I have, If you can take anything from reading this (skimming for the other one or two people) Is that God blesses us beyond belief...
    For anyone that actually takes time out of their day, or night to read my posts, it means the world to me so thank you and good night

Well I guess my blog has been pretty intense so tonight I will post on the wonderfull'ness' (not a thing) of Psych.

      Lets start with a synopsis (as best as I can do): Psych is simply a show about a Psychic detective Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his partner and long time best friend Burton Guster "Gus"(DulĂ© Hill)Solving cases for the Santa Barbara Police Department.....The thing is Shawn isn't a Psychic. He is merely super observant after his father (Corbin Bensen) trains him to be a cop throughout his  childhood. He is used by the Police to solve crimes using his "Powers". And things are always unpredictable and exciting. It Is like CSI Miami but way less dramatic looks at the camera while putting on sunglasses (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mznsEcZlM2I).Almost every episode starts out with Shawn's dad teaching him a lesson of some kind that comes into play in the episode. After that you are in store for an hour or so of hilarious and witty crime solving.

Well now that you know at least a little about the show I will share my opinion, and why I think it is so awesome. I think the best place to start is the beginning of the show, with the intro. It is awesome by itself, but they change it up for episodes like christmas, one about a mexican soap opera (my favorite intro), halloween, and an episode about Indian people...Which is awesome. Next off I  LOVE the way this show is written, It is so quick and witty! The way Shawn and Gus interact they are constantly arguing about random things and going on tangents it is hilarious. The way they work together is remarkable. Also the way Shawn talks with Lassie it is so much fun to watch. One of the last reasons is love this show is great is that they don't take themselves seriously example; There is at least one pineapple in almost all the episodes, like how Seinfeld has Superman in every episode. And my favorite part of all....It's on NETFLIX!!
 Well this has been my brief description of Psych!

Joel 2:12-14

Starting tonight off with a simple verse....

12"Yet even now," declares the LORD, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning; 13and rend your hearts and not your garments."Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love; and he relents over disaster.
14 Who knows whether he will not turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind him, a grain offering and a drink offering for the LORD your God?

I underlined the words "rend" and "relents" because honestly I had no idea what they meant in realtion to these verses....according to dictionary.com Rend means "to tear apart, split, or divide" and "relents" means to soften in feeling, temper, or determination; become moremild, compassionate, or forgiving. So there you have it.

This verse truly is amazing! It is so encouraging to read that God, "is gracious and merciful,slow to anger,and abounding steadfast love". But I think as a person I read this tonight, and only view God as a forgiver, which he is don't get me wrong" (not quite sure that is a word). But he is also so much more than just the person we say a word to every night so we can sleep better.I feel like at least in my life sometimes God is only my forgiveness, and that is all. But in reality God is so much more, He convicts us, and leads us, and...even corrects us when we are wrong.....I feel like alot of the time I have a lopsided view on who God is.... and  Pardon me for bringing a Talladega Nights quote (scene) into a rather deep blog post, but what the hay!...so watch and enjoy!

I promise you this isn't just a random clip of Talladega nights.....it is actually relevant to my point!!But this clip I think can really sum up how a lot of us view God, (not exactly), but when Ricky says, I like the "Christmas Jesus", the best so I pray to him (paraphrazing) It is like how we view God as something so we can get what we need from him...sorta...hope y'all are following...But God is sometimes put in the box and labeled as whatever you want God to be in this case being "Christmas Jesus" But what I,and maybe you as the reader as well, have to understand is that God is so much more than just forgiveness and healing, but a friend, and the stern hand that guides you. But what I am trying to tell myself mostly tonight is that God needs to be more than a last word at the end of my night, but a huge factor in my life....

But tonight If you didn't know this before God is all of these things listed in this verse! but also so much more as well!!

On that note good night and happy thanksgiving!

Staying on fire

Alright it truly has been a while and for all of you i deeply apologize, but I would like to let everyone who doesn't have a blog know that the want to blog comes and goes quite often!

Let's ease into tonight's blog with a little tidbit from my life....MY KNEE FREAKING HURTS!! I'm not even sure why...it just does...And also we went to the Austin Zoo and had the most glorious personal train ride from Cody the Conductor...(hope this nickname sticks so bad!!) Alright well that was at least part of my day....

So tonight I would like to ask a simple question....
How Do You Keep Your Passion Alive
(In other words, staying on fire...)
This doesn't even need to be a spiritual question, just a simple question about what either keeps you happy or in some cases what keeps you busy in life...(that phrase wasn't planned but man did it sound good when I typed it!)

I understand that everyone has things in their lives that keep them sane wether it'd be sports or knitting or whatever it is.... But how do you keep your passion for that thing you love.
Technically for me right now that is a spiritual thing but this can work both ways...sooo you can keep reading either way!
But I feel like life can suck the passion out of so quickly that you don't even remember what it felt like to have such strong passions in your life...Maybe for me it is just forgetfulness, or something, but definitely not for lack of trying...(maybe a little)  But I wonder how to make sure I stay passionate through just a couple days, and not lose all those amazing feelings built up inside of me!
So the two or three of my loyal readers (hope i am not overestimating this number!...but it's the internet so technically if I said I had a million loyal readers you would never know...)So loyal millions of readers, I ask you to really find what you are passionate about this week and stick with it!
I will try my best as well!
K Bye,
Tim Coleman

1 Timothy

Technically the only reason this is a blog post is because it won't fit on facebook (shakes fist angrily!)

1 Timothy 1:14-17
14The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.15Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. 16But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life. 17Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

This verse truly is amazing! I mean it has it all basically....
Breaking down kind of what this verse means to myself:
     It starts off with something truly stunning...the stating that the Lord loves us so much that he personally will "pour" out his grace and love on us. (kind of cool) I think this second verse is like ok so here is how I view this, and it is so obvious it should be common knowledge, that God loved each and every one of us so much that He sent his son down to Earth to save us from our own sinfulness. The intriguing part of this is when he says that "[he] is the worst".This verse is one of those (insert booming noises of stuff like blowing up while signaling with your hands the literal exploding of your mind). He says that because he was a sinner thatJesus did come to this Earth, for the worst of the worst, so that they might see him. He says that God used him as an example of how great His power and patience truly are. Verse 17 is how I am going to try and end all of my prayers from here on out, "Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen."...well that is my thoughts on this at 2:40am :)
