So many exciting things are just around the corner! Graduation, summer, my brother working at Kanakuk’s K-West, Caleb and my wedding, my parents move to New York City, graduate school and so much more!! My heart is so excited that I can barely contain myself! Recently I have wanted to skip and sing praises to His name everywhere I go! Thank you Jesus for the plethora of blessings you have bestowed upon me! I’m so thankful not only for the actual events and physical things on this earth, but also for the joy, peace, love and desires He has given me. All this joy has made me think back to a chapter in a book I recently finished. Once again, it is from “Kisses From Katie.” How sweet and true is this:
“Mommy, if Jesus comes to live inside my heart, will I explode?”
“No!” [Katie] proclaimed…
Then I thought about the question a bit more. “Yes, if Jesus comes to live in your heart, you will explode.” That is exactly what we should do if Jesus comes to live inside our hearts. We will explode with love, with compassion, with hurt for those who are hurting, and with joy for those who rejoice. We will explode with a desire to be more, to be better, to be close to the One who made us.”
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.
We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.
1 Thessalonians 2:8
Be very careful how you live- not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity.
