Not An Ordinary Day

This week, I have seen pretty much all of my family that lives anywhere near me. I took my mom & dad out for their anniversary on Thursday night! On Friday night, my little bro, Jimbo came for a visit. We hung out for most of the weekend and he left this afternoon. I don't get to see them too often, so I enjoy it. I especially appreciate it when they come to see me.

I've been challenged a lot lately with the Word of God, and it would be an understatement to say that I have been convicted. I feel like God is trying to open up my brain and stuff a ton of things in there that I need to learn, but haven't gotten yet. I've been really challenged not to live my life out as a mediocre Christian. What do I mean by that? I think I have become comfortable in my Christianity, and instead of striving to be more like Jesus, I have settled. I am complacent and I don't want to be. After attempting to do something about it on my own, I gave it to the only One who can change me. This has now become my heart's cry... "God please don't let me be satisfied with my walk with you, but desire you more than ever before."

Here's the verse that is stuck in my head, "For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ has not accomplished through me, in word and deed..." (Romans 15:18)
