I feel old. Not old as in feeling like an old man, but older and wiser. I feel I’m entering a new phase of life. I feel calm and at peace. I feel more clear-headed with the decisions I make sure I bathed them in prayer before I make them. I have lived a life full of quick and rash decisions. I’ve made a lot of blunders as a result of it. But I’m pretty careful with who I surround myself with and who I let influence me. I guess they say you get better with age – like wine. Haha. But I am taking all the experiences I have encountered and learning how to life a full life from them. I don’t need praise or attention anymore. I have great mentors and people I can mentor. I have good community and I have a Lord and Savior who I look to for my worth.

It’s been an emotional weekend. After leadership training, I broke down in front of a large cross and just gave the moment to God. My friend Ansley walked by and hung out with me. It was good because I needed to get out what I was feeling. God is working in my life. He has been putting back the pieces for some time and has laid out a path for me. It’s good to be in His will and actually know it is the right thing to do. Life makes more sense and is way less stressful as a result of it. My grandmother is dying and I am very close to her. But I’m celebrating her not grieving because I know she loves Jesus and will soon be with Him. God has put wonderful people in my life to do life with. I didn’t seek them out, He gave them to me. I feel very blessed. My tears are of tears of joy because I am a child of God.

Before Facebook, I was on Myspace. I’m glad I am not anymore. But I used to love blogging on their site. I would sit on my balcony and just write. I would write about what God was doing in my life. Today I read through them for the first time in years. As I read them, I couldn’t believe what I was reading. Who was this guy? I read through stories of someone with incredible faith and a broken guy that God was using in amazing ways. I was so sadden to see how far down the slope I have slid since then. My faith is not even what is used to be. I have lived a very selfish life these past three years – a life for myself and a life trying to please other people. But yet, there is hope! And God has been building me up these past couple months. He has been doing incredible things in me. These stories are a reminder of Christ’s love for me. I am God’s son and I have forgotten that. My life belongs to him now and I will serve him to the fullest. Advent season is about restoration and that change has already begun with me.

I downloaded all 100 blogs during that 2 year span onto this site. They are stories of how I wrestled through life during that time and relied on God to get through it. Click on the myspace blog entires category tab and read through them. Read how great God is and how he used me and how he will again. God has great things in store for us. Trust in him and believe in the power of the gospel and the hope of a Redeemer. It is never too late to turn your life over to Christ.
