The Sun is shining and Spring is in the air! Days like today remind me of what an awesome Savior and creator I have directing this life. Reminds me also how even on the rainy crappy days I should be as happy about my Savior. How sad it is that we let certain worldly things and situations dictate our relationship with Christ. Looking back over life I am reminded at how my Savior has been guiding me and holding me through this life and how I couldn't have done all that I have done without him and be where I am today. This life is His and I am honored to have been called by Him to be his daughter and spread His word. Life is an awesome adventure! My life isn't perfect in fact I am far far from perfect, my life isn't beautiful. It's a beautiful disaster, with all the cracks and brokenness filled with an awesome caulk called Christ :-)
Just a soap box of mine:
Easter is right around the corner and it's the second Sunday out of the year that many people up and decide to get all prettied up, do the Christian thing, and make their appearance to Church like they do at Christmas. Growing up in a Pastor's family I see a lot of this. My heart hurts for those people knowing that they have no idea what it feels like to be in a true relationship with Christ. It also hurts my heart to see people effected by their hypocritical Christian life and how it really does prevent other's from experiencing a relationship with Christ. Being a Christ follower isn't just going to Church twice a year, or every Sunday, It's a lifestyle. When you profess to the Church and the world that you have become a Christian then LIVE it. We need to be a generation of change and we CAN be. Action is involved. We are different from the world. We have been called by Christ to serve him. We can't serve him when we are living in our sin and refusing to move because it feels good where we are. We are comfortable and "satisfied". It's time to step up to the plate and realize you aren't here on this earth for yourself. I mean, what a sad and purposeless life that would be. We can complain about the world being a terrible place but until we do something about it we are just a part of that terrible situation the world is in. So let's step up because we have an AWEsome Creator who died an excruciating, violent, and gruesome death on the cross for US. How little it is that we offer our lives in service to Him. How honoring and humbling it is that He loves and continues to bless us and forgive us. His grace is AMAZING!
