surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord

Heya everyone. It's been a few days since I updated. I've been keeping myself busy with work and other things.

"But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ - the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith. I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead." Philippians 3:7-11

The whole chapter is very good, and I'm holding very close to my heart at the moment because of something I've decided to lose for the sake of knowing Christ, and my heart not hardening towards him. God asks his followers to sacrifice things from time to time. I guess this is the first time I've had to do it properly. As in, I'm really making a huge loss and am very sad about it.

"But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them - yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me." 1 Corinthians 15:10

Comfort food blues

Dropped Lise off after church. On way home, picked up some comfort food in the form of Red Rooster. I thought, the greasier the better right? So wrong! I feel ill, although, it might just be a too-much-oil sort of illness. I think comfort food should be limited to chocolate and nothing else. Man, I think I'm spending too much time on the internet, this is the 3rd post today. *is a loser*

Car is getting repaired tomorrow. Is costing me $950, though, that's just insurance excess. And I actually have the full amount of money on my own. OMG, I've saved over $500! Usually I earn, and then I spend. But this time I've saved *is proud of self*

I'm also going to Mars, ought to be good. Catching up with Lise, Clare and Hilary. *sigh* um... yay by default. Would go yay if I had the enthusiasm
