Okay, my last post wasn’t very clear. I’m gonna have to re-write it just as soon as it isn’t 11:00 at night.
I guess it’s a lot easier to write about something you dislike or hate than it is to write about something you do like. It’s like explaining why you hate vanilla ice-cream compared to explaining why you like Blue Moon ice-cream.
And I still haven’t responded to Albert yet. Sorry dude. The 11:00 thing is keeping me from that right now.
My family is leaving at 7:00 in the morning to go work on our new home. Our house sold a few weeks ago, and we’ve been busy getting the place at our grandmas ready to move in. So a bunch of guys from the youth-group will be getting up at an un-natural time to help us out.
I’m sure you don’t want to hear a bunch of random nonsense from a random guy who lives a random life.
So here is a video that I found refreshing.
God bless, and please forgive my grumpiness,
I was looking for a list of good Christian videos on Youtube, and to my surprise there are none.
So with your help I want to create one. Send me the link to the favorite(s) of your choice and I will consider adding it to the list. Any type of Christian video is an option. Whether it is a sermon, compilation, inspirational or humorous.
I have also asked the people over at Sermon Index and a few other forums for help with this subject.
Until the list comes together, here’s a video that inspired my first video and was a huge challenge to my life:
I just updated the video page, even though it doesn’t look like much. I have been searching for a very long time for a plugin that would allow only my registered users to download my videos.
It’s still free of course. You simply need to login to your account before the video becomes available for download.

A long time ago, on a post far far away, I tested IntenseDebate comments on this blog. It didn’t go over so well. It required an account with IntenseDebate, it had trouble syncing with NationPains, and the format was a lil messed up.
After that, I used the default WordPress comment system. *yawn*
Complete with ignorance to line spacing, personal avatars, and reply features.
I am glad to introduce to you, DisQus.
It’s pronounced discuss, and I have fallen in love with it. You can now comment on NationPains using your Facebook, Yahoo or Twitter account. It also has support for Open ID.
Let me know how you guys like it, and if you run into any issues or bugs.
One year ago this blog was launched. Wow.
It is very convenient that it was born very near my birthday.
A lot has happened in a year. To this blog and to me both. I have never been so busy in my life. Trying to make a tiny living, while I prepare for full time ministry. Planning videos, without a laptop (soon to change). *sigh*
I am worn out. Emotionaly and Spiritualy. And now that my family spent the weekend at Kings Island, physically as well.
I have been doing a very good job at keeping my birthday from my friends in the youth group. Why am I doing so? I don’t know. It started out as a little game of secrecy, but now it has become a huge conspiracy. I have my family throwing a party and telling dates and such. However a few in the youth group know the real month somehow.
So if you are in my youth group and reading this, I have something to tell you:
I have alot planned for the next year. A video to be released in October, and many more waiting at the tip of my brain to be developed. Good grief, I need to buy that laptop soon.
Thank you so for being a reader,
Just this morning I had the opportunity to speak to my congregation. Of course I was scared to death, but with God given courage I made it through.
I was shocked however to hear that I had only spoken for 13 minutes. Quite the quick sermon huh?
Something I should work on next time. I thought for sure this was going to be a longer one.
What I am worried about right now is that “The Passion Promise” has vanished for Tangle. Without any explanation. I emailed them to hopefuly get an answer. There were allot of views and comments I would hate to lose.
It has happened before though. We will see what happens.
Maybe it is supposed to be setting the stage for the next video?
“The Prophecy Promise” will be released October 1st. It is a christmas video, and dispite the title, it has no prophetic speakers. You will see what I mean.
Thank you for your prayers everyone! They help and aweful lot.
Man alive. Things have been crazy.
Just got home from higgins lake a few days ago. That was fun. Looking forward to the youth group trip.
My family has no internet right now, so posts and updates are going to be slow. Then I am leaving for 2 weeks on Friday, so there wont be any for awhile.
I want to post something about Michael Jackson before I leave. But that is gonna be a dousy, and I had better not rush it.
The new video is finished, I just need to figure out how I am going to release it to you wonderful people.
I have to speak in August. Twice. Maybe even three times. But nobody is giving me details. Great.
So yeah. Talk to you later.
I have a question for you. As Christians, we are called to lay down our life for Christ. To “die to self”. Now, is it possible to take that too far? Would I be able to restrict myself, beyond what is expected of me?
I have added a poll to the site. Along the right sidebar. Tell me what you think, and in a week I will give you my thoughts based on Romans Chapter 6.
I want to start posting more personal and update type posts. Hence the new word.
I took the word Personalize. I added “ation” to make it a method. I then threw in “ism” to make it sound scary.
I am working on a new video. It resembles Revival Hymn, but with a different message. I have used sermons with Paul Washer, Jim Cymbala, Leonard Ravenhill, Paris Reidhead and a few others. So far I have only created the audio for this video.
Our youth group just hosted a full 24 hours of prayer. About 10-20 youth showed up to pray for specific periods of time in our youth room. Praise and worship, sermons and other videos were played while we prayed over prayer request cards fill out by members of our church.
Thanks for reading.
