BE BOLD TODAY
Do you ever have those days where you wake up feeling great, and you just think today is going to be a great day? But then one thing happens, then another and you end up cranky and sassy? Well I have had many of those.....
Have you felt like you've been robbed of your joy? No alarms went off, no police were called, not even a warning that the enemy has been slowly taking your joy again, and again.
Sorry it's been awhile, it's been a crazy month. But I felt like I should start blogging again. I was thinking of things Christians are afraid to talk about. Sadly we have many things we are afraid to talk about. The questions are what are they, and why are we afraid to speak about them?
All night and all morning I've been thinking about the question, "What is normal?". I know, such a weird thing to think about for so long. But it took me to another question, are Christians normal?
Wow, hi! Remember me? Sorry it's been so long. I know you've been sitting in your room waiting every hour of every day for a new post! Just kidding, but I've been thinking about what to post for the longest time. I would open up this page, press "new post" and just sit here for seconds, minutes, and sometimes hours. Nothing came to mind. So i figured I would literally just start writing and see what God does......here goes nothing.
So if you don't know me, I go to a Christian college. I LOVE IT. But a lot of the time, for me personally it's easy to just plan out my week. What i mean by that is, we are constantly digging into scripture, reading books about God, etc. and that's amazing! But it's easy to "take God out" of what im reading and to just see it as another book. What kind of love is that for the creator of the universe?
Hey! So I went skydiving the other day, it was AMAZING! Amazingly scary that is, but I wouldn't change it for anything. I got to go with my brothers. OK....you caught me, that was a lie. But didn't it make me sound interesting? Or at least made this blog interesting! But why?
Okay, I want you to work with me for a moment. Imagine yourself riding a bike, going for a run, or having a nice family picnic. You're outside on this beautiful day, temperature is perfect! Not to hot, not to cold. The temperature goes down one degree, now it goes up two. Do you notice? No? We tend to not realize small degree changes like that, but the thermometer shows us! We wouldn't notice, without a thermometer until 10 degrees go up.
For days and days, I've been trying to figure out what to write. I could write about my day, my feelings, God, food, my dog, my school, literally anything. I was reading my journal from this summer, it suddenly hit me...
A few weeks ago I spoke at my church back home. I was not so fond of the idea. Why you ask? Because I hate talking in front of people. Once it's over I am always glad I got up and spoke. God does amazing things and I do fine. But before I actually speak, it's the most stressful/scariest thing ever.
