In today's society I often get asked the question "Don't you feel as though as a Christian you are limited to what you do, your not free do as you please".

Now as a Christian I believe that I am truly free to do as I please. Its not as though I could not get smashed or have sex before marriage, God has given us those choices and they still stand for Christians as much as they do for non-Christians. However, the difference lies in the choice.

I choose not to get smashed because it is abusing the body God gave me and I love God.
I choose not to have sex before marriage because I believe sex is a gift from God and believe it should be saved for one person in marriage because I love God.

It does not mean that my life is free from temptation from these things, or that I find it easy. However God does help us along the way. By surrendering, giving everything up, we free ourselves from the burdens and just love God.

True Freedom comes from surrender.

Yesterday evening I went to see Inception.

It is incredible. Everything about it. It had laughs, cries (although not from me im far to manly (cough cough)), adventure, music, everything.

It is a must watch and just wow.

That is all

So today I received a text with a bible verse in it. Unfortunately I was at work so could not look it up straight away but at lunch time I decided that I was going to try and find a bible.

I work in Ealing which is home to a pretty big library so that was where I headed.

Having found the "religious" section I proceeded to look for a Bible. There were Bible dictionary's, prayer books, guide books ect. But no Bibles. I then decided to check the other religions sections to see if there was one in there (by someone moving it), there were plenty of Quran's and Jewish manuscripts and such like but no I head to the desk:

"Hi, Im looking for a Bible I wonder if you can help me"
"Just give me a moment" *runs off to look in the religious section* "Try upstairs in the reference section"

So I head upstairs, and once again reach the desk:

"Hi, Im looking for a Bible"
"Umm follow me" *Takes me to the religious reference section* (once again full of Quran's and other world religions books) "Sorry there are no bibles here"
"Do you actually have any Bibles?"
"Well not many people read it"

At this point, I decided not to tell the man that it is one of the most read books in the world.

Eventually by digging through old books they found me a copy of the Bible.

I was shocked, a library in West London which is home to hundreds of Churches and Church Schools. Schools which teach RE do not have a Bible to hand. The worst part was the librarian honestly believed that not many people own or read a Bible. Something, somewhere has gone horribly wrong.

As mentioned in the last post I was camping last weekend. As a family we went on a couple of cycle rides.

I do love cycling, it is the best way to get around as it is free and good for the environment.

The real reason for this post is due to me wanting to say that I managed to reach 34.2mph on my bike this weekend.
