I’m Still Alive and Worshipping Jesus!

Standard

Hi y’all!

Yes, I am alive and still on fire for God! My God’s not dead and neither am I! ūüôā

Basically, some people have posted comments on here recently, and when you do they go to my email¬† for approval and that is what reminded me about¬†this old blog I used to have. I know my last post was one saying that I will be posting more things (which never happened and I am truly sorry for that! Oh life, it interferes with everything!). I’m definitely¬†NOT getting on here to make any promises, like “I will post every day/week/month/etc!” because I really have no idea what my plans are for this blog and I’m not going to promise something I already know I can’t fulfill.

I’m going to try to post whenever I have a message that Jesus leads me to write down. I think that is a good goal right? ūüôā

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To summarize what my life has been like since the last post:

– I never backslid or anything like that, don’t worry! I actually became even MORE involved with church. I am¬†one of the three¬†people who run PA/Sound at my church, I’ve taught some semesters of my church’s Sunday School, and I’m still singing (terribly!) in the choir.¬†I have also been helping my church’s national organization completely¬†reestablish a subdivision of one of their ministries, completely revamping it to reach out to over 250+ souls in need of the word of God.

– I’ve drawn closer to God than ever before in my walk, and I definitely feel blessed and highly favored. You know when you start doing something great and suddenly you just want to do it 24/7; you just want to get better and invest more of your time in it? That is how I am now. I’ve been really busy doing these things for God and the church, and yet all I keep thinking is: I NEED to do MORE. I WANT MORE, I’m NOT WORTHY of His mercy and I’m DESPERATE to do¬†MORE of His will and His work! That may not make sense to many of you, but I will never be worthy of all that He has given me and I’m just pressed to find more ways to show Jesus that I appreciate Him and need Him. (I’m currently toying with the idea of going on a mission overseas…)

– I also have a full-time job that I’m loving! I’m actually jotting this down during my lunch break. It’s sucking up a lot of my time¬†because my commute is about an hour and a half, but it’s providing a paycheck!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sometimes I text my close friends little thoughts that come into my mind randomly. In the past couple of days one of my friends suggested I start a blog, and she was the first person I know in real life who I told about this blog. She has urged me again today to revamp it and post on it more, so this is partly because of her! Love you girl! (She still hasn’t discovered the blog though because it is anonymous and I’m not telling!¬†Haha!)

I just wanted to say that I appreciate each and every one of you reading, and I hope you know that more than anything, God loves you. If you don’t go to a Pentecostal/Apostolic church, please find one in your area and just try it out once, your life may never be the same.

Day 4: An Outspoken Christian

Standard

(Note: This blog was written in my prayer journal before I got the blog, so that is why the count of days may be wrong. Thanks!)

Tonight I have had a mini video marathon after I discovered jezuzfreek777 on YouTube. (http://www.youtube.com/user/jezuzfreek777). He posts videos about Christian topics and has a straight forward attitude. A lot of the comments he gets are hateful but he never lets it stop him. I think his videos will hopefully bless my life in You.

Many of his videos touched me but one in particular has, and it has revealed to me that I need to be a more outspoken Christian. I need to tell people “may God bless you” or “I will pray for you” and mean it! I need people to see the evidence of the value I place on You in my life God. Help me to be more outspoken and represent Your kingdom in a positive and loving way!! Previously, I thought I should keep religion separate from my college life (because I go to a very liberal university where the majority of the people argue against religion) but in reality I am just scared of the reactions I might get. Will they question me and will I fail at answering? Will they degrade my beliefs? Will they gang up on me and rip me to shreds with words? But those are just excuses I am using and they are not acceptable! If I trust You, You will guide my words and actions to reach out to others. If I do get persecuted then it is a sacrifice I am willing to make and it will help me to grow spiritually.¬†¬†You walk with me Lord and I need to lean on You.

1 Peter 3:15-17 – “But sanctify the Lord God in your hears; and be ready always to give an answer to everyman that asketh you a reason of hte hope that is in you with meekness and fear: having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well being, than for evil doing”
