Loving a holy God is beyond our moral power

"Loving a holy God is beyond our moral power. The only kind of God we can love by our sinful nature is an unholy god, an idol made by our own hands. Unless we are born of the Spirit of God, unless God sheds His holy love in our hearts, unless He stoops in His grace to change our hearts, we will not love Him... To love a holy God requires grace, grace strong enough to pierce our hardened hearts and awaken our moribound souls." R.C. Sproul

How Being Saved by Grace Frees Us to Share the Gospel

Tim Keller, /Gospel in Life: Grace Changes Everything/
,
p. 201

The gospel produces a constellation of traits in us:

1. We are compelled to share the gospel out of /love/.
2. We are /freed from the fear/ of being ridiculed or hurt by others,
since we already have the favor of God by grace.
3. There is a /humility/ in our dealings with others, because we know
we are saved only by grace, not because of our superior insight or
character.
4. We are /hopeful /about anyone, even the “hard cases,” because we
were saved only because of grace ourselves.
5. We are /courteous and careful/ with people. We don’t have to push
or coerce them, for it is God’s grace that opens hearts, not our
eloquence or persistence or even their openness.

Flip side of the Moon

Flip side of the Moon

G'day Readers;


I wonder how many can surely say they were meaning to do something and they did it a while and then they slowly lose habit or a lack of interest of one day throws the rest of the week off track; anyone dare to say Yes thats me. Well I be the first to say Yes thats me.

How about this, you been meaning to do something such as straighten the bookshelf and you continue to tell yourself day in and day out I am going to do that book shelf and you find yourself in the following month still saying it, well again I be the first to say Yes thats me.

Its annoying and why do we do this to ourselves? We find time to do things such as chatting to other people but less time spending it with our own family or doing those things we keep telling ourselves we need to do.


I am not gonna apologize for not writing sooner cause if you know me well I do it often and hey you may like suprises anyway, some people do anyway lol.


As some of you read my facebook I went to the doctor the other day as I had this sore throat and it feels like a marble on the left side of my throat when I swallow and it was getting painful; any how the doctor gave me some antibotics and I am hoping that it will go away soon. Otherwise I am doing well,please keep me in your prayers; Also in other medical news I am going to the eye doctor to get my eyes checked this coming Saturday; I am so looking forward to that as I am sick of not seeing well espically I like working with my hands making things and plus I find it useful as to reading too and typing this lol.


Today has been reasonable, we had our electricity turned off for a short period as they were changing the overhead lines and making the lines go underground instead, doesn't bother me much where they are as long as we got electricity.


I went to the Christian bookstore the other day and got the book I wanted for twenty dollars, it was based on the movie “Fireproof” if you haven't seen it I strongly suggest you do anyway the book was called the Love Dare and its a devotion for couples but recommend singles read it too as you can get some good wisdom ahead of time. I said to my eldest stepson now I get about three more books and I be happy and He said Yeah until some writers write more books that you like then you will have to get more; and I said yeah he is right about that. By the way if someone wants to donate some free Christian books that you don't want or got more than one copy,let me know what it is.

Well I watch Biggest Loser and Dr.Oz this morning; man Bob got all emotional this morning about losing some of his people to Jillian Michaels, as they were dividing teams to Blue (Bob) and Black(Jillian), what bothered me is that the young man and his dad got seperated as the young man trying to lose weight to keep his dad in, this last time the dad lost seven pounds which was good that kept them both safe and they have been lucky as they have been below the yellow line several times,but other members have kept them in. Anyway the Brown team have been seperated now so will be interested how that is going to turn out.

DoctorOz shows all kinds of medical stuff and helpful information, from Weight Loss,Diabetes, Tattoo removal and food poisoning; my youngest stepson came over and chatted to me some and saw what I was watching and He said that seems to be all that Dr. talks about is poisoning, and I said well if you ate American foods at a Fastfood place you are likely once or twice to get food poisoning, I have been there, no fun at all.

I am still going to church and enjoying and this time I stayed in longer and had a cup of tea (not coffee) and the Pastor said I look like I am been more relaxed than before; talking about the depression I have been going through. Sunday night was good to see a friend preaching,I also got a CD of him as I have always enjoyed listening to him since I met him at Grace Thelogical College a few years back when listening to his teaching.


The weather here has been a bit crazy, Sunny,Wet,Damp and Dry (what I always say the weather is going to be when someone ask what the weather gonna do) It would rain for five to twenty minutes then sunshine then back again; anyway its Autumn(Fall) here anyway so can't complain really. I love the green here its absolutely beautiful year around.This evening we had a beautiful sunset,I took a picture of it with my cellphone


Ok I suppose some of you are wondering why I named this Blog “Flip side of the Moon” well this side of the Moon is not what I am used too, its funny to miss something like a moon reflection you have grown to stare at over the years, but I think its amazing that I have the chance to see more of the moon so thats it for now until next time ~ God Bless

New Thoughts/Beginnings

New Thoughts/Beginnings


I can begin to see how important getting better is for me and for my family's sake because they do care for me more than I realized and allowed myself to realize wholeheartly (through negative past hurts).


I also realize that some people from church do care about my health & wellbeing; Not all people from church might but I don't have to accept any negative stuff from anyone, and can lean on those who uplifts me and does care. I can walk away from anyone who might make a negative remark, or know it's just their opinion and that we all are entitled to them.


I know that _I am_ capable to make schedules and stick by them, yes I accept that there will sometimes be interruptions in life that will knock my schedule to the ditch BUT that's Life and its not a constant thing and if it is it will only make me stronger as I can learn to adapt to those situations; I have that control.


I know now that I can regulate my sleeping habits, I can control when I awake or go to sleep. And realize how important sleep is; and also that I can get up with my wife and have breakfast with her or even make breakfast some mornings.


I know the importance of taking my medications on time and staying up to date with it, and calling the chemist and getting my prescriptions, and also the Chemist knows me by name and greets me with a smile.


I know I am in control of my Physical and Mental wellbeing and there is nothing wrong in asking for help from others.


Yes I can do things as working with wood, making jewellery or even writing a blog or talking with a friend on the internet, Yes others might can do the same as me but this isn't about them its about what Billy Cockrell can do and is capable of doing; and if don't know how; find out how from online or personal friends.


I can manage and or limit my time in doing things if it becomes too much.


I can manage or limit myself in any situation such as church and other activities, taking it one step at a time; one foot in front of the other one. Or as my youngest stepson says keep my chin up.


I realize the past is the past but sometimes it will bring up its ugly head in situations I am in or whatever, but I can get through it and I have family and friends as backup to help me through it; if I open up and tell them.


I will remember that not all people are alike, they might have similarities but they are not the same person and also over years people can change; just like I did over time, and also just because someone might be rude to me doesn't mean I have to be rude back or let them control my emotions.


I realize I might be partially deaf in both ears, have crooked legs or can't do certain things normal people might can but I CAN do things that Some People cannot do. I have Great Support !!


I am in control of Billy Cockrell, I am Billy Cockrell,noone can hurt me or ruin me unless I allow it to happen, which I ain't. I am loved by many, I can do great things, and I know that I can get through it all !

That's my New Beginning and Never Ending !!

Midnight Monday

Howdy Everyone;

Its midnight here and I am really depressed, I keep telling myself to do this schedule thing, it goes over and over and over in my head daily and constantly no wonder I get a headache and want to sleep its annoying, some people say just do it, it isnt that easy, also I supposed to record on my cellphone positive things about myself or think rationally - bleh - I am sorry I haven’t kept up my writing. I also deleted the info about me and family as there is so much crud going around about being safe from internet losers that have nothing better to do than to hack and etc. Really stupid if you ask me. And plus people get all nervous about sharing info on the computer and where ya live. Ok I admit I might be stupid in this area but heck if ya that nervous about sharing why don’t ya dig yaself a cave in the middle of nowhere and hide there, I mean if people want to know anything about ya they just ask people that you come in contact with, like who is that person and etc, word is easy to get out and if its anything like Texas it will get about. Anyway I been so sick of all this internet No No that I am just about ready to shut everything down that I have including facebook,myspace and even my blogs.

Well I guess I go to bed so I get some sleep and dream this cottin pickin schedule =[

I dont like it one bit but I know it will help me get better blah blah blah blah - Yeah Negative thoughts !! =P oh Goodnight who cares !!

Sunday ( Anzac Day )

Sunday ( Anzac Day )

Hi Everyone;

Now for those who doesn't know what Anzac Day is I suggest you Google it so you learn something new. Come on it won't hurt you.

Delwyn made us breakfast this morning before we hurried off to church, We decided to sit in the back row on my behalf for now until I am comfortable and can cope with being around people.

Anyway Peter Boyd came and talked with me some and told me to relax, He being encouranging me by email and face to face, He always been nice to me from the very start; I appreciate him.

Also my friend Collin came up and talked with me some and about the funeral he went too, and I told him about my friend Nate's granny having cancer and if he could keep her in prayer and He said he would, He is a nice guy. Later as the church was filling up, a lady took a chair from the front of me and took it elsewhere and the Associate Pastor Peter Reynolds who sit in front asked where the chair go when he sit down next to where it was taken away and his wife told him what had happen then I tapped him on the shoulder and said don't worry I can fill that spot and streached my legs out as I have long legs and he chuckled; Him and Margaret his wife are nice people too. I sometimes give him a hard time about being an ex Baptist and how he betrayed us Baptist brothers lol.

The pastor of Covenant Presbyterian Church; Peter Boyd preached from Hebrews 4:1-13 “ Reaching God's Rest ( Sermon Title) Thanks to my wife keeping notes I will share them with you.


~ In a fallen world where sin has so ravished everything,it is hard to find rest conflicts continue,out in the world or inside each of us.

In rest there is the idea of future hope for human destroya rest that the human heart yearns for.

We are called to be anchored in Jesus Christ so we are not drifting.

/*Heb 3:10,11 but this rest is God's rest - Heb 4:3-5 */

After creation God rested on the 7^th day – A sabbath day of rest. This establishs a principle in human history. This is to tell us something about the future,the idea of rest for God was not to sit and do nothing.God stopped from his labour and was satisfied & and enjoyed a work well done. Resting after a day of labour is satisfying. God was willing to bring the people of Israel into rest but by their disobedience they forfeited that rest.

There is also a Great Rest to come. Rest reminds us of this great rest to come; a taste and reminder of what is to come. The Israelites missed out of the rest of the Promise Land.

Numbers 14: Joshua & Caleb told the people God would not let them enter the land.

After 40 years when the people came back Joshua led them into the land.Hebrew 4:8 However Joshua couldn't give them complete rest. Only God in the future can give us rest.Our eternal rest is given to us by God because of what God has done for us in the Lord Jesus Christ, On Sunday ,the Lord's day we rest from the labours of 6 days, and look forward to our eternal rest & wishes we will go with that rest earned for us by the death of Jesus Christ.

Sunday is a grace worship that some of us fall away. We are called to avoid the conditions of heart that causes us to turn away.

To examine our hearts, and ask if we are the true believer of Jesus Christ and true inside where only Jesus sees.

Make every effort. Heb 4:11

It is a command effect Heb. 3:13. Encourage one another.
I thought this was a good sermon to share with you guys, anyway after church service there was a Church luncheon but I didn't feel comfortable about staying and told my wife Delwyn that I was sorry for being a pain and she said Its ok, I want you to get well, your more important. (Ain't she a sweetheart.)

So we came home and had ham & cheese sandwiches and coffee. Later there was a racket outside and Jazz came home from church and said that the Sikhs were having a parade down our street down into town; and for those who watched them at the end of the road gets snacks and etc; so Me to my curosity had to see this for the first time and take pictures, so we got drinks,snacks and apples; and I thought that was nice of them lol and then we came back to the house and I asked what do they believe? So Allan quickly got on google and read what they had; a bunch of interesting stuff.

Then later Delwyn went to her mums for a while and I got on the computer and chatted with friends, later she left and went to church and I decided to stay home, later Jazz got to talking about Calorie Counter and then we got to talking about Calories then from one subject to another then I looked on Sparkpeople the group I used to belong to, then we got to talking about exercise stuff and we did measurements and weighing and etc. then I said something about the exercise ball they had at The Warehouse; and she said we should go and check it out so Jazz,Allan and myself jumped in the car and ran down to The Warehouse and I bought me a ball, and they got themselves a soccerball. Then we looked at the bicycles and got to talking and I said I don't know if any of those helments fit my big head then I saw that you can adjust them and I thought cool, so its a possibilty in the future around Christmas I may have a new bike and Helment and etc; I think it be cool to ride a bike again I can't remember the last time I rode one. Lol

Then we headed home and I said I hope we beat Delwyn back home cause she would get worried about us, but we got home in plenty of time.

When we got home we looked about trying to air up the excersise ball but we didn't think we had the right pump so I went to Bryan and asked him if he had his pump available but it wasn't in the house but in the storage shed, so we decided to wait until Morning.

Delwyn arrived home and Jazz and Allan made Tea once again, it was the same as the night before, still just as good, not leftovers but they cooked up the same meal.

I got on the computer doing some searching and looking at Cockrell family history for a friend so I can send it to her, beginning to think I am not good at this like my wife is.

Then we talked and watched some television then decided to go to bed.

So thats it for Sunday. To all the Fallen Heros & Heros that remain;Thank You for my freedom and those I love deeply. Oh and Thank you Sihks for my Treats.

Saturday's spotlight

G’day Everyone;

Got up this morning;my wife made some breakfast for us both then we decided that we weould go to Spotlight and another place that has yarn and craft stuff, I wanted to get some necklace fasterners and Delwyn wanted to get some yarn; so we went into Manukau City for that. We spent a good time looking at all the different stuff.

As we were walking around in Spotlight Allan text me and asked where we were and I told him and he said his usual ” K ” reply lol.Later after coming out of Spotlight; Delwyn and I decided to get a bite to eat for lunch and decided on McDonalds next door to Spotlight after we left there Allan text again and was wondering when we were coming home, Delwyn said tell him 10 minutes but I misinterpeted and said 30 minutes but anyway we got there less than 10 minutes and then I rushed in and told the others we were ready, then we all got back in to go grocery shopping, we did our shopping then came back home and I was exausted and a bit jiggly because we were around alot of people but I manage well.

I did some Jewellry and Delwyn showing them off to Kylee & Bryan next door; Kylee and her family is making some nice Jewellry as well. Anyway it was nice to do some of the jewellry until I got stuck on one and decided to quit it for a while and got on the computer.

Jaz went out the door to the games at church and played turbo touch and other games of fitness; when she returned home she was red in the face and seem exausted; and she told me what she had been doing and told me about the kids telling her she better come to church tomorrow and was giving her hugs so she said she would. I thought that was nice of the kids.

Later Delwyn and Jazz went to the Church concert in different cars and when they returned I asked Delwyn how it went and she said it was ok; while they were out me and Allan stayed home and did things on the computers.

Everyone was home and Jazz and Allan made Tea which was very nice. Ham Steaks,onions Mashed Potatoes and carrots. Then we watch a movie until close to 12 midnight, Delwyn had went to bed earlier and then I decided I couldn’t stay awake to watch it and plus I needed to get sleep so I went on to bed.

I read a magazine I bought until i had enough then crashed off to sleep.

Fantastic its Friday

Fantastic its Friday

I got up a bit late due to not keeping my schedules on time, anyway I got me some cherrios new zealand cereal for breakfast, did some stuff & chatted to a good friend of mine online, then Bryan came over and we talked some about his blog and dreams.


Well the medicine kicked in and I battled it to stay awake and succeded and decided to work on the jewellry for the car boot sale that we are doing on some Saturdays.Then I got frustrated cause I didn't have some end fasterners so I decided to put it off and sit outside.


I got my green chair that Bryan & Kylee got me one Christmas and sit in the back yard and listen to some music on my cellphone and Eddie Rabbit came across the Radio singing I love the Rainy Nights lol. Then the cat Garfield came around and started wanting my attention so I petted him and then got a stick and let it chase it about, then it got up in some bushes and was in attack mood and I knew it and took a picture of him with my cellphone, it was quite nice in the sunshine while we still have some few nice days left before winter shows up.


Allan and Jasmine made Tea, it was very good, mince with peas and onions and some spice,Baked potatoes(microwave) and Califlower. Later we watch some television, some old game show called “Its in the bag” and then we watched “Wonder Dogs” Enjoyed watching that with family.


So yes Friday was Fantastic, so I believe I am getting better, I sure hope so anyway for my sake and everyone else lol.


Thats it for Friday !!! =) Until next time

Day of Mixed Emotions

/*H*/owdy Everyone,

/*T*/hursday was a day of mixed emotions, I didn’t want to go to the Psychologist cause the last time I went I felt as though I was being rushed through, but I told my wife I have no interest of going cause all he gonna do is rush me through it and plus I know he is going to talk about the schedule thing which I did once and it blew out of the water, what I mean is that I had planned my day out and it went well for the first part of it then something unexpected happened and it all came crushing down and I got discourage to try it again even though I tell myself that I have to learn to expect the unexpected.

/*A*/nyway i went to the Psychologist and yes I did get the lecture on scheduling and we also discussed things and he said he reconize that I am still struggling with negative thoughts about myself and things I have heard my dad say to me in the past that didn’t help me postively. Negative thoughts such as I don’t amount to anything, I am useless, cant do anything right and so forth; so my Psychologist recommends I write down postive things about myself or recording on my cellphone and listen to myself saying more postive things; my wife as gone as far as asking family members to tell me postive things. Anyway after talking with him I told him I would get into the scheduling thing again, so keep me in prayer on this.

/*L*/ater on after returning home I got on the computer and was looking forward to writing on tumblr and also trying to figure it out, Bryan came over and gave me a hand at it but the computer was being so slow at a dial up speed I was getting overly frusterated enough to put my fist through it, anyway finally I gave up and did other things such as preparing supper which went flop as also I was receiving a phone call from a website that I am helping with, telling them if I thought something was useful or not useful and what I thought etc which is realated to depression also anyway I really was still frusterated with the computer being slowas and didn’t feel like talking but I did with the help of my wife and it was the last called and I told them what I thought and etc and they thanked me an hour later and said they would be sending me $60.00 voucher; so that was nice of them. Oh and thanks to Bryan & Kylee for letting me use their computer while talking to the website.

/*W*/ell my wife helped me cook Tea which was good as she knew I was frusterated with our computer, later she asked me if I wanted to go with her to the musical practice and I said might as well as I wasn’t getting anywhere with the computer lol so i went and did some reading with a book I bought the other day called ” Hell’s Best Kept Secret” with Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron from the Christian Radio show ” Way of the Master” I surely miss it as I don’t seem to find it anymore, but they still have “Wretched with Todd Friel” but I never have been able to watch much of it due to as it drags the high speed down to dial up, any video for that matter will drag it down which is annoying but oh well its Internet Life. Anyway I read that and listen to the people sing which I thought they were doing good and also got to hear my favourite hymn “How Great Thou art” at the end of a song they were singing.

/*A*/lso I forgot to mention I saw my psychiatrist for a short time and he up’d my dose of medicine to a stronger dose hopefully it will be helpful and not make me fall asleep like I did the last time. I talked with Mrs.Boyd and others at the music practice, they asked how I was doing and etc. I told them I am slowly improving and told them what I had to do such as scheduling and etc.

/*A*/fterwards we came home and watched a little tv and I tried the computer again and it went a little faster which was nice, I went to bed late which was stupid on my behalf but I will improve. Anyway thats it for my Thursday notes, I hope you can understand what I am going on about. Please leave a comment if ya read this, have any questions please feel free to ask.

I am Amazed

Good Evening Everyone;

I am gonna try and summarize my last few weeks;Most of all some of you recall I have depression and I am talking to a Psychologist whom is a good listener and also a Psychiatrist who has prescribed me some medication, which lately the medicine has been making me drowzy; but it has been improving; hopefully I will be much better before the end of this week.
Well thats not at all what I amazed at What I am amazed at is for Christmas my lovely wife bought me a LG GW300 cellphone which I enjoy so very much, I am Amazed at what all this little thing can do and the size of the little memory chip that my Oldest stepson and his fiancee bought for me to go with my phone.
Anyway I have many handy things on it, example I have KJV,NIV,ESV Bibles on it that is very easy for a person like me to use hehe and also have an Audio Bible on it,
also on it I have many videos of John Piper, thats Videos, remember this is a cellphone, on this also I have a Notepad which I can keep notes, but I am looking for a better
one so if anyone knows of any let me know, I also have RSS feeder(hoping to be able to read favourite blogs) on it which I am not sure how it works yet plus I have
Our Daily Bread Devotion which you can download from their website monthly; Anyway Also it has My contacts,Calendar,Mp3 music,Alarms and Also I can surf
the web such as Google,Facebook,Myspace and many many more. But all of this I really love the Bible and Devotion; and that I can text/talk to my family and friends,
I am blessed, but it is so Amazing what technology has done. I have heaps of room yet to add stuff so if anyone has any suggestions please let me know.


***On My prayer list*** ( if you want to be on my next prayer list - please send me an email.)

1.The people of Haiti
2.Hamish,Anita,Aria and Asher MacDonald (you can click on the Aria button on the right and read more about her journey and her family)

Howdy Everyone;

First of all "Happy New Year Everyone!"

It surely has been an interesting past year 2009, Hopefully this year will be kinder, but I have my doubts, bad huh lol oh well.
I didn't make any New Year Resolutions, had enough of them in the past and failed them terribly.
The best thing about 2009 is that I met some cousins I didn't know of and started chatting to them on yahoo and facebook. Sad part of 2009 is some good friends of mine has passed on and surely will be missed.
Its a lovely day here in New Zealand I put out a wash on the clothes line this morning;opened all the windows to let the wind blow through, its a bit warm outside but its ok where I am here sitting in the chair chatting to friends.
I am hoping to get back to reading other blogs.
Anyway thats all I am gonna shout about right now until next time God Bless
