thoughts and (surprise!) i’m happy!!!!!!!

so many thoughts have been going through my head the past few days.
if my mind were on paper it would be a crazy jumbled mess… no one would be able to understand it.

(me and a group of friends eating at Applebees the day after Dillon- Paul returned to the States from India. this is myself and Ben and Joseph. )

i’ve also been thinking about what God wants me to do with my life. Again, like John Piper so eloquently reminds us, I don’t want to waste my life. What am I to do? Well, i firmly believe that when Jesus said go and make disciples, it’s not a suggestion, but a command. My question is, where does He want me to go right now?
Caldwell County (Lenoir)? Fredericksburg, Texas? Greensboro, North Carolina? Haiti, Dominican Republic?

All I know is everywhere I go there are many people who need to be lead, ministered to. And I don’t want them to hear me. I want them to hear Jesus. I don’t want them to follow me. I want them to follow Jesus. I want to conduct myself in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ.

There are opportunities in the direction I am headed, as I finish RN school where I can do this.
Please pray that I wouldn’t be so focused on the future that I miss opportunities in the present to reflect Christ and to serve Him alongside my brothers and sisters here in the States.

Don’t waste your life!!!
