new life.

So this week,
I was assigned to write about my journey from childhood to choosing my college and future plans. The more I wrote my story, the more I realized how boring it was. Yeah, I've lived some cool places and had some great experiences and nothing about my journey has been horrible or dull but writing my story without mentioning Jesus in my life was pointless!

My new life, my entire purpose for living is to glorify Jesus and without this intentionality of living my life would just be meaningless.
Today is Maundy Thursday, a day for celebrating in the passover feast and on this Maundy Thursday 16 years ago I asked Jesus Christ into my little four year old heart.

NOW that is worth writing about! Christ has purified my heart and given me a new ETERNAL life! okay wow... hold on one second...

ponder this...
WE are forgiven in HIS name! His Holy Spirit lives inside us! He moves through us and breathes new life into us! If this isn't good news than I don't know what is!
What Jesus did for us and what we are about to celebrate this Easter weekend is incredible and beyond words. Let us be thankful and rejoice, for Christ has given our stories meaning. He has planned for us an incredible and unpredictable, amazing journey and I'm enjoying it!
I wish I could go back and re-write that paper and proclaim my testimony in Him, because He deserves all glory and honor forever and ever.

But, I'm so thankful as I remember that God invited me to be his beloved daughter 16 years ago. Wow I'm so in awe I'm speechless or in this case wordless...

take time to ponder your story today and rejoice for He is good!

"This truth gives them confidence that they have eternal life, which God—who does not lie—promised them before the world began" Titus 1:2
