I’ve heard the best way to share the love of Christ is to just tell your story about how He changed your life. So here’s mine…

Psalms 37:4
“Delight yourself in The Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart”

My mom taught me this verse at an early age.  It was her life verse and it has now become the verse I live by. Webster defines delight as to “please someone greatly.” So that leads me to the question, what is it that pleases God?

One thing that I’m sure makes God happy is when we obey Him (John 14:23).  Walking this so called “straight and narrow” path is not an easy task and gets very lonely at times. Believe me, I used to be at home on Friday and Saturday nights in high school asking God “Why… Why do I not want to be at that party!? Why am I not normal!?” But it was in those times that He taught me what it really means to trust Him. To trust that He had a plan for me, that He made me exactly who I am for a specific purpose, and trust that He knows and wants what’s best for me!

Looking back, I’m so glad I learned that while I was younger, because now I know it has saved me from sooo much heartache!! I think the trick, or the secret, God is trying to reveal in this verse is that when we delight ourselves in Him, His desires become our desires.  His dreams become our dreams. And let me tell you, when you know you are living in Gods will and know that there’s no better place for you to be, you find true peace and true joy. Ill leave you with this…

1 Timothy 4:12
“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.”

We’ve all heard people talking
About all the things that they regret
And what they would change to do it again
We know our story’s just starting
So much is unwritten, yeah
We’re gonna go right when the world goes left
‘Cause we don’t wanna waste even one of these days

We’re gonna save (hey!) ourselves the heartache
We’re not looking back (no!) on what we wished we’d done
We’re gonna risk (yeah!) it all for one thing
And live for Jesus while we’re young
While we’re young, young, young, young

There’s gonna be some up times
There’s gonna be some real steep climbs
So it’s here and now that we deceide
If we’re gonna be ready for the days when life hits hard
We gotta know for sure who we are
‘Cause we don’t wanna waste even one of these days

We know who we are
A chosen generation
We know who we are
This our declaration
‘Cause we don’t wanna waste even one of these days
