Greater than these

During the second week, I found out evangelizing isn’t scary. As a class we were required to go downtown and share the ‘good news’ How nervous was I? SO nervous… gah over nothing! I found out to evangelize means to have a relationship. To take the time, to stop and hear each other’s stories. I ended up meeting a Vietnam Veteran. His name is Bill. He reminded me of a pirate. Looks and all! Bill just wanted to talk to some good looking ladies (old men and their charm). He was hanging out on the boardwalk between kona inn and the canon club. Just passing time, and hanging out with a buddy. Simple minded and was up for listen and someone to talk to. We didn’t have a full blown conversation.. yet. But for the few minutes we talked, you could tell behind those eyes he has stories. In which I would love to hear. So wise, and so much you can learn out of the elderly. 


After talking to Bill I felt encouraged, hopeful, and relieved. If this is what Jesus did. Sign me up. “We are created for a relationship”- Philip Lin.

Plain and simple we are called to love.

Mark 12:31 “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

What defines us..

Isaiah 64:7 “You are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter: we are all the work of your hand ”.

And I sit here in my warm bed, I’m pondering and thinking about what’s ahead in the future. Now the Lord tells us to not worry, but my heart is worried for a loved one. The world tell us we are to define ourself, or worse yet we some how believe others can label us. Trick us into thinking something we aren’t. Why is it easy to label others? Does it makes us feel better about ourself. Maybe for a short amount of time. In this day and age we are living in the generation to ‘express’ yourself. Another 70’s movement.. Maybe.
What I’m trying to say is.. Don’t let the world get to you. Satan is alive and well In this world. But do you know our God is Greater our God is BIGGER than any problem. He knows the emptiness and degrading sin is, but yet He took His life for my sin. Wow.. Powerful.. How can I ever thank you?! By letting You use me. Today marks 10 now 9 days before I leave on my great and grand adventure. I know the Lord is using me to be a prayer warrior, and to show Gods grace by loving one another. Today has taught me: to love means to keep NO record of wrong. (1 Corinthian’s 13)
Let the Lord shape our life, most of the time I get molded out of place. But when I give my trust, hope, and faith in Him. He’ll hand craft my beautiful journey called life.
