Ask me anything
I come, God, I come
I return to the Lord
The one who’s broken
The one who’s torn me apart
You struck down to bind me up
You say You do it all in love
That I might know You in Your suffering
Though You slay me
Yet I will praise You
Though You take from me
I will bless Your name
Though You ruin me
Still I will worship
Sing a song to the one who’s all I need
My heart and flesh may fail
The earth below give way
But with my eyes, with my eyes I’ll see the Lord
Lifted high on that day
Behold, the Lamb that was slain
And I’ll know every tear was worth it all
”The message of biblical Christianity is not “God loves me period,” as if we were the object of our own faith. The message of biblical Christianity is “God loves me so that I might make him - his ways, his salvation, his glory, and his greatness - known among all nations.” Now God is the object of our faith, and Christianity centers around him. We are not the end of the gospel; God is.”

A lot of people have been asking me why I don’t go out and party often or why I changed so much from high school. The simple answer is that I could care less about those things at this point in my life. They don’t make me a better individual, nor get me any closer to where I want to be.
When I was in first grade my teacher told me that I could be anything I wanted if I put my mind to it. As I grew a little older, I realized that this motto is only half true. Not everyone can make it to the NBA, become famous singers, or doctors. If you really want something you have to be willing to put in above and beyond what is deemed necessary, and that might not even be enough. The reality of the situation is that there are only limited spots available. Working hard doesn’t guarantee success, but laziness definitely sets you back. Therefore, I am always driven by the fact that when I am resting, another man is out there trying to take my dream away. I can’t let that happen.
By no means am I saying that I found some secret recipe to make it in this world. For all I know, I may look back at this post in a few years and laugh at my immaturity and stupidity. As a matter of fact, I am contemplating deleting this right now haha.
However, what I am saying is that, for the time being I am willing to sacrifice my pleasure for something greater. It is what motivates me every morning and what keeps me from falling asleep at night. I am thankful to God for everything He has blessed me with, and I pray that He can continue to align my will with His.
