Hi to all my faithful blog readers. Hope you are happy and conquering life as always. Today is Saturday, and normally I would chill out and gather my strength for the coming week. Writing a blog post is not on top of my priority list. Reason being is that my brain is so mushed after a week that I cannot do any form of creative writing. As always, The Holy Spirit gave me food for thought, and I have to share it online.
I love being social, despite being an introvert. I love people around me, I do not always talk due to my shyness, but I still enjoy a night out. As a Christian in social situations, I find myself on occasion being surrounded with people who, lets say they social with the help of substance. Nothing wrong with that if you know your limits, IF YOU KNOW YOUR LIMITS.
Anyway, last night I was surrounded by an unusually young crowd. Was extremely weird how I ended up there. But as I sat there thinking that if they know how they are throwing away their potential. 100% of those “kids” has the extreme ability to change the world. Probably even more so than me. I guess my prayer could be that they meet Jesus supernaturally.
As I was surrounded by this unusual social gathering, The Holy Spirit reminded me of a conversation I had when I was 22 years old. I got to know this new friend of mine, and one of his first questions was:”so what is your poison?” I guess it meant what sort of substance do I use to chill out after a hard days’ labor. My answer was: “well, I do not have something like that, not anymore anyways. Cause I choose to follow Jesus wholeheartedly.” He shocked. He then asked me:”how could you sacrifice your young life to follow religion?” I can’t remember what I said, but the fact that he was so surprised to see my commitment at a young age is something that I will always remember.
This reminds me of a verse in Hebrews 12:
Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of God.
WOW!!!!! The author and finisher of our life. Isn’t that amazing?
I am 25 now. I would not swap my journey with Jesus with anything in the world. My one wish is that I could give my heart to Jesus as a teenager.
If you are reading this and you have not committed your life to Jesus yet, do it today. Live for Him, He would take your life to places where you would think possible. The best joy ride of my life. The world cannot compete. I have a relationship with Jesus for about 7 years now. Never could I have imagined the places He took me, and this is the beginning of the journey. I cannot wait for what is to come. THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS.
