Thoughts and journaling from a Christian, College student

Entry 2

I'm not sure where I left off last time, but not alot has happened since then, which seems to be the theme of this semester. Whelp, I wrote last time with the full knowlege of what I need to do to become the man God intends me to be. But as i may or may not have said, What is the point of having the klnowlege of what I need to do unless I have the inate desire or craving to seek after God. i have the desire to desire God, believe me I feel empty at times, and I feel filled at others, that isn't my struggle. My struggle (along with multiple sins) is an inibility to act out what it is that I know i "want to do. "I know I want to do", sounds funny, but it's true. I know exactly what I should want, but for reasons beyond what i can describe, I don't feel what I should do. For the longest time, I felt a conection with the verses in late Romans 7 ..." I do what I don't wnat to do, and what I want to do I cannot" It gave me comfort that even Paul, solid guy that he was, struggled with an inibility, at times, to do what he knew was right. Romans 8:1 however was a bit disconcerning, "No condemnation for me!" With this new found liberation I found myself with the ability to justify actions with the fact that nothing could snatch me out of God's hands. (using lack of context to my advantage comes too naturally) Of curse I still belive that this is correct, from an eternal perspective. But I can now feel a deprivation of God's love, which isn't possible, therefore, it is God that feels the deprivation of my love towards him. However, I know Idon't depend on God like I should, i know I don't act out the things he wishes most for me. He wishes to give me the desires of my heart, but I have'nt allowed for desires to come into my heart . I haven't allowed for him to show me what it is to live life to its fullest, My desire list, right now, is empty.
There is no more desperate a feeling than the lack of desire, but having a desire to desire at the same time. But the feeling of the first so outways the knowlege of the second that inaction is the only result of my endless struggle to desire God. Only further complexifying the situation, and thus more frustration comes when I ponder my situation. Now, the beauty of reading the wod is in mistakable, I get into the word, whenever I have the need (horrendously not enough) I think there in lies the problem. That and my unwillingness to just be alone with God and just talk out, and seek out the end to my seemingly endless rut. I don't know if I feel ashamed to come back into his presence or if I don't feel at all. Or, is it the Devil or my flesh waging a war against what my spirit thuroughly desires? If so, they are decietful masters of stifling the sreams of desire to sprint endlessly back to my Saviors arms, because I can't even hear the faintest whisper. However, I know that is the case, I know the desire is there, fighting to get the light it deserves, fighting to shine from every ounce of my being, fighting to fill, no overflow me at the seems until I am bursting with the need for God's never ending Love. I know it is there, yet I choose to ignore since I cannot hear. Out of mind, out of heart should be how the saying goes, it is very much so in my sight, I can see the visible impurities that spill over from a vicious battle that wages daily in the members of my body (mostly my cursed eyes and tounge) I can feel the remorse and the pain that is coupled with a person who lacks God's love, but unfortunately for me, I cannot show it.
I show the world that everything is fine, I show my friends/brothers that I indeed have a problem, but I am taking steps to master it. That is why I write, to expose what is indeed going on, i write to not only lift my spirit and make reel my problem to myself, but also to verbalize what it is that I can so easily mask with a false battle an false victories, and false faith. Inwardly i am slinking into the dark recesses of my life thus far. While outwardly, I struggle indeed, but to what end? To the end that is acceptable to outsiders. i have become so acustomed to deciet that i can now expose horrible parts of my life, and then cover them with what appears to be a revalation, or a new effort to seek God, when in fact, all I am doing is creating more of a distance from the truth, and climbing slowly (sometimes furiously) away from God. I often time time stop and survey the progress I've made while others watch what I can make look like an effortless dive back into what God has for me, only to effortlessly slink back to my climbing perch while they aren't watching, thnk and sceeming my next apparent shortcoming that can be easily overcome by my amazing outward self. So now I sit, naked to deciet, longingly looking down back at the water with the knowlege that if I jump now the impact will only hurt momentarily, but will quickly be overcome by the refreshing cool of God' s encompassing self. The Sun and wind blister my skin, but my body keeps climbing away, up ,up ,up, I look again and realise that the hurt could be worse now, but my body still climbs, and my mind still lays the web of lies, and my heart still feel nothing. But the spirits muffled voice cries out in a hallow and dark hall, i hearit, but how do I answer?

IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

BREAKING NEWS!!
InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain�s
efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
Monthly Magazine�s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
Finance License.

Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
This dramatically helps a finance company�s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
is ready to take their business to the next level.

Conclusion:

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
