“The most dangerous love is to fall in love with someone and fall out of love with God. You have gained the world and lost your soul.”
interesting thought. very interesting.
God, this is all because of You. Because of You, my friends are coming to know You and they’re all so strong. I was just a vessel. I was just an average nobody. I never in my entire life thought that You would use me in the way You did. I give You my life. I’m such a screwed up person that made so many mistakes and yet You still use me. Thank You for Your grace and Your love. I know a lot of people think I did something for them, but it’s all because of You. I deserve none of the glory, and You deserve all of it. I’ll praise You with all I got. Thank You Jesus!
I thought life was just about getting a good education, making friends, going to college, then getting a good paying job and buying my own home and having a family. And after that I thought I would just retire and do whatever I want with my money and just live life. Before I met You, that was my purpose. The same purpose and goal that everyone else on this world wanted. I know that’s just part of what my true purpose is, but if thats all there is to it…then it’s meaningless.
But what about after that? What about after I get a family and have a house? Or after I work for about 40 years and then retire? I just die? But I know there’s life after death and what would all my hard work go to? Waste?
You see, before You I had my life planned. I knew what I wanted to become, I knew where I wanted to live, and til this day a lot of it is still on my mind. But then I found You and I heard Jeremiah 29:11 and decided that I would put my trust into you. And now my trust is in You.
God, You know it’s hard for me to put my faith into You sometimes because I don’t know where I’ll be going, how I’ll get there, or what steps to take. But You promised that if I trusted You, You wouldn’t forsake or leave me. You promised that You would give me my perfect will if I just choose to give you my heart. You said that my life is going to be more than just getting a good education and finding a decent guy to marry and have kids with. You said that Your children are greater than that. We’re better than just finding “decent” spouses or “decent” jobs and live a “decent” life. You called us to be great, and honestly without you in our lives, it would all be meaningless. Riches, “decent-ness”, just surviving and all our hard work mean nothing if it’s not for You. You’re the only One who can make Your children greater than they thought they could ever be. So this is me, God. I no longer believe that I was put on this earth to just roam around and do what everyone else is doing. I trust you, no matter where you do or don’t take me. All I know is that in the end it WILL be worth it because I’ll be with You. Without you, I can do nothing but barely survive, but with You I’ll go higher and farther than I can ever imagine. Thank you.
