Be different.. not distant.

February 7, 2009

I read this today, and it realllllllly resonated with me.

“Too often we have called our detachment from the world around us an expression of holiness when in truth it is an abdication of our responsibility to serve humanity and make the world a better place.”


Life is Good

August 16, 2008

Wow,.. I have so much to be thankful for. God has truly been good to me.

I look at my life, and there are sooo many things that I could complain about, but it just isn’t worth it. Sure, some things haven’t exactly gone my way, and times have been sort of tough lately. But if I look at the big picture… there’s no place that I would rather be.

I live in a nice house.. and have my own room. I never have to worry about food, and sometimes I forget to eat and don’t even realize it. Fresh water is just a lift of the faucet away. I can say whatever I want to say and have absolutely no fear of the government persecuting me. Serving the most amazing God is a freedom that I cherish, and I can express my love for Him how ever I please. I can jog outside and not worry about pollutants inhibiting my ability to breathe. The world is at my fingertips with the invention of the internet.. and my education will inevitably afford me amazing opportunities. There are many other things I could list,.. but I think that the point has been made.

My thankfulness shouldn’t be mistaken as an absence of ambition,… quite the contrary is true. There’s so much that I want to do, and so many places that I want to go. I don’t want to rush it though. I’ll take it with time and enjoy every step of the journey.
