We have influence over the future. Choices we make affect the rest of our lives. Okay, I still have a hard time with the whole "effect vs. affect" thing… drives me crazy. I think I got it right that time.
Life is short. Kind of like this blog post.
To put it simply,
Man= sinful, in need of healing, forgiveness… a Savior.
Jesus Christ= creator, perfecter of faith, everlasting lover, SAVIOR etc.
Cars, money, "peace," food, hollywood, power etc. = not true happiness.
Jesus= forgiveness, joy in the midst of trial, reason for living (he created us, for goodness sakes)
Jesus= only way to the father, heaven, truth.
Dear friends, let us not become weak in our knowledge of the truth. The word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword…
that's pretty sharp, by my observations and calculations.
I'm just in a 'say it like it is' mood. And may the Lord forgive me for not being more bold about the truth more often, while I have the chance.
He is life and all that is worth pursuing. People and things and ideas will come and go, but he is everlasting.
p.s. i'm twenty now. and blessed beyond words. excited to see his plan for the future.
