Modern day Scripture

   I have recently started to consider the idea that scripture was not supposed to end with the Bible. Partly because nowhere in the Bible does it say that you can't speak the word of God. In fact, I would say that Jesus and the Apostles knew that the people that they were peaking to would one day inherit the Holy Spirit like they did and would end up, at some point, speaking great words of God.
   We read scripture like it is the end all authority in our Christian lives, as we should, but did we ever stop to consider that the words that come out of our own brothers and sisters mouths is just as authoritative as the Scriptures themselves. As long as one is filled with the Holy Spirit and understands that doing God's will is the soul priority in their life, then the words that come out of their mouth will be the words that God, himself, wants them to say.

First post!

Hello all... This is the first post to my new blog Life Tapestry. I do think and explanation of the title "Life Tapestry" is important.

    My junior year of high school I began to look at and evaluate the way God was working in my life, and I found that He was doing great things through my experiences with other people. I was at the time working with a man who believed that life was just like a thread, and this thread, as one goes throughout life, would just begin to whither and fade away. I thought on this idea and found that it was lacking something. I don't see any harm in saying that our lives are like threads but I can't seem to see my life without other threads in it. \

    So this is how I described my life. I believe that life is like a tapestry, and I am a thread in that tapestry. It is the things that I strive for, the things that I say and do, that create the coloring of my thread. This thread, though, is only one in a countless number of other threads that are being woven into a tapestry. My goal in life is to become as beautiful of a thread as possible so that I may both compliment the other threads around me and also compliment the tapestry as a whole.
