Seems like the Lord has decided to do significant things in my life in increments of four years.
8 years ago I graduated from High School. And that summer the Lord rescued me out of my depravity and made me alive with HIM! Jesus saved my life that summer before college, and I will never be more grateful for anything else in my life. No accomplishment, milestone, degree, etc. can ever compare to the greatness of knowing Him.
4 years ago I graduated from the University of Texas! HOOK'EM HORNS. I am a very proud Texas Ex. I'm so thankful for my time at UT, as it's where I really fell in love with the Lord, and began the learning process of living a life for Him. College was so fun!
And today, 2010, I am three and half-ish months away from beginning a journey that's exciting, yet nerve racking, but humbling. I know without a doubt that God is leading me to NYC for the sake of His gospel. And with that, I can't have any doubt that it's not going to be awesome! I'm nothing special. I'm no super Christian. I don't have all the right answers. I still struggle with sin. But with God all things are possible. He uses ordinary people to do crazy things for Him. I'm a prime example of an ordinary person who's just been changed for the sake of the gospel.
What are you willing to do for the Lord that others won't? I challenge you to think about that today.
