I’ve just finished my second week of college and I have to say that college is a lot better than high school. The ability to make your own schedule and the freedom has been amazing. God has been so good to me by bringing me here to SFA. I’ve made so many new friends and I know that these Freud ships will never go away. I’ve been blessed with the fact that I was able to have a easy transition and a great schedule. Classes have started to pick up already and there have been a day or two where I have had to stay up pretty late getting my readings done. Please continue to pray that I will manage my time wisely and that I can build more lifelong relationships.
"And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them" (Romans 8:28, NLT).
Friend, we have to understand that even though life is not always fair, God is fair. He promises that He will work all things together for our good. I believe the key word in today’s verse is “together.” In other words, don’t just isolate one part of your life and say, “Well, this is not good.” “It’s not good that I got laid off.” “It’s not good that my child got sick.” “It’s not good that my relationship didn’t work out.” Yes, that’s true, but that’s just one part of your life. God can see the big picture. That disappointment is not the end. Your life doesn’t stop because of one setback. That is simply one piece of your puzzle. There is another piece coming to connect it all because God promises to work all things together for your good!
LG has announced the arrival of a smartphone display that boasts a 2560×1440 resolution. Some may say that such a display resolution is overkill for smaller devices, and others may be all for the QHD (quad high definition) display. Whether or not you see the benefits of having an ultra-high resolution mobile display, there’s no denying that development in smartphone displays are progressing much faster than other segments of consumer tech—especially, PC monitors.
Tragically for many traditional PC users, not a lot of efforts were put in place to push for adoption of ultra-high resolution displays. Some manufacturers have produced PC displays with resolutions beyond 1080 to cater to the enthusiasts, but as far as the masses go, the go to resolution is still 1080p.
Mobile computing is the trend, and handset makers are constantly trying to up one another through all means possible. The QHD display from LG is certainly something we can look forward to if OEMs decide to utilize it in their products. In the meantime, though, let’s just sit tight and hope it’s not just another horn tooting announcement to boost brand recognition.

Let’s just take a moment to think about how good life is right now. Most of us are probably well fed, have air conditioning, have access to clean water, and have the luxury of laying around with our laptops mindlessly scrolling through tumblr <3
After being spotted on Samsung’s China Website, Samsung has officially announced the Hennessy, an Android flip phone that features dual 3.3-inch touch displays with resolutions of 320 x 480 pixels, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1500 mAh battery and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. While the idea of bringing back older form factors such as the flip phone may seem silly, remember that many people mocked Samsung for bringing back the stylus with its Galaxy Note series that turned into a surprise hit. Samsung still hasn’t announced any release date or pricing for the Hennessy.
This morning my dad decided to unexpectedly stop right behind me as I was backing out the drive way to go to school. I hit his car and there is a noticeable dent it. He was furious that I didn’t use my side mirrors or anything to check what was behind me. I couldn’t see anything from the back window because it gets all foggy from our sprinkler system that turns on early in the morning. I was extremely frustrated because I was running late for school and my dad, having a bad temper, starts to yell at me and lecture me. The reason why he stopped behind me was to tell me that I didn’t turn off the sprinkler all the way.
I was thinking about this event all during class and I couldn’t even focus. My mom called me later and we discussed about what happened. She reminded me of how reckless I can be at times. This day just started out really bad for me and I don’t know what to do.
This is so perfect in a time like now :)
Father, you alone know each heart. Please help me be more patient with others before forming an opinion about them. Please give me eyes to see them as Jesus does. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

While listening to This is Amazing Grace by Jeremy Riddle, I am constantly reminded of the chorus when it says this is amazing grace/this is unfailing love/that you would take my place/that you would take my cross/you would lay down your life/that i would be set free/Jesus, I sing for/All that you’ve done for me. I am constantly reminded over and over and over of how much God loves us and the things that we have done that has pushed Him away from us yet He still loves us no matter what. His love is unfailing, His grace and mercy is never ending. There is no other one who can save us. There is no one that will still love us when we do unspeakable things. Jesus took up the cross so that we could be presented before God blameless and perfect.
Another song is Second Chance by Rend Collective Experiment. There is a chorus that is please don’t stop creating me. For me this line reminds us of how perfect we are created in God’s image, regardless of race, color, physical appearance, whatever it may be; nevertheless we are all perfect in God’s eyes.
To sum it all up, we all strive to be perfect in things that are useless in God’s eyes. “I don’t meant to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead. I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us,” Philippians 4: 12-16
