OH. I didn’t know you were a ‘Christian’

I write today feeling like I do not have a distinct, specific, special calling on my life. At 21, I am still figuring things out. My prayer for life, not just part of it-all of it, is that I would know who I am in Christ. That i would KNOW, always, that God’s love is literally all I need. Jesus you’re all I need. 

I don’t want to live a double life..I want to live a pure life. I want people to know what I believe.

'Oh, I didn't know you were a Christian.' …for the girl making small talk with me, that may have not seemed like it would make an impact on me. But, alas, it has..There are two things about that statement that caught my attention.

1. I am not a Christian. I am a Christ follower. That means striving to do everything through Christ (who strengthens me), doing everything like Christ said and what he DID. 

ACTIONS.

I really don’t do well with those three qualities..But I really want to..and i try to..

2. Whether it be Buddhism, Christianity, Mormonism, what ever religion it may be-we should be living out what we believe..demonstrating it. 

'we live like we believe in the air, why? because we would die without it.' so.simple.

If I am a Christ follower, why am I not living like i would die without my Jesus? What am i doing, or not doing, to portray a life like Jesus lived? 

I want to be challenged to not take life so seriously, yet so seriously at the same time. To be light hearted about things, and not let so much pressure get to me. Yet, understand every single day is literally a gift-and we don’t even ask for it-or say thank you. Life and death is a whole different post, however, i will get to that someday.

I want to be opened up like a flower in the morning. Fresh, new, and beautiful. Every morning.

I often ask myself—‘when will I hear from you Lord?’ and the answer IS..when I finally start listening. 

Lord, perform insane open heart surgery on me-my physician, healer, father, friend, comforter, restorer, savior, redeemer, king of kings, Lord of lords, my everything.

Be my everything. 

LUKE 5:31 -I have not come to be a doctor for the healthy, but for the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

AMEN.
