Looong long time no see!
I know I probably should be in bed now, but since I came online to read what I’m about to show you, I thought I’d make a quick post before I head to sleep 😀
(Read the most recent post before you read on – it’s a real eye-opener).
I really admire her courage. Even now, I’m in awe at how people can continue on so strong even in the midst of trouble. How can they remain so deeply rooted in their faith despite everything that goes on around them?
It’s something I wonder if I’ll ever be able to understand. I do hope I can, someday.
I was reading Romans today, and one verse really stuck out to me…
“For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.”
It was so convicting.. in particular the part I put in bold above.
It was as though God was speaking to me, asking me what I’m doing with my life. I’ve received eternal life, I’ve had many prayers answered, miracles performed and yet I’m not really putting what He’s given me to good use. As I was walking out of my room, a question popped up in my head… “what are you doing with your gifts?” No, really. What are you doing with the gifts I blessed you? It was a question I didn’t want to answer, because truth is when you’re young you feel you have all the time in the world. Family feels like they’ll be around forever, education feels like it’s your life and all you need to do is study study study… the gifts you get given? yeah, I’ll use them tomorrow… after I sleep. I dunno, just this one verse was really convicting. It’s making me question where most of my time goes, and whether I really am making the most of my life.
