Living Jesus

It was probably the best day (as far as weather goes) outside today. I loved it! Around 8pm I was like what in the world am I doing inside. So I went out and played my 12 string for a about an hour and half, and then I was on my way back to the dorm around 9:30 when I saw a girl trip. I met up with her and she asked where the library was so I walked her there (she doesnt go to ACU yet). She happens to have a great alto voice so we just sat down and praised God. (I used my guitar shhhh dont tell anybody haha just kidding) Then Eric Johnson joined us and we sang and talked about stuff til curfew. Her name is Jessica White. Afterwards I came to a devo/discussion time with a bunch of guys from around the dorm, and Randy Harris. It was awesome! Lots of guys really opened up and asked questions and shared their beliefs. We talked about not being "Christians" but just following Jesus instead. And how radical of a life that really is. What I love most about it is that it is more than a religion. It is a call to GREATNESS! And I want to be great at everything I do. So that makes it so much more attractive to me. So with that I leave you with this challenge.

Do not settle for "well at least I only did _______" or "its not as bad as the sin they are doing." There is no reason we should ever settle, for ANYTHING. Following Christ is more than that. It is a call to greatness. A call to an authentic faith. A call to perfection.

Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
~Matthew 5:48

Hi, Bubba!
This is a fantastic idea...I love it...but mostly I love you. I have always known that God has special plans for you...but seeing him work out his plans, and confirm his call on your life is an amazing thing for your mother! I am so grateful how God is calling you to himself, and how I know that he will use you for his sovereign plan and purposes! Remember, I am praying for you daily, as you come to my mind!...and that's alot!!!
Have a very blessed day...I love you...Mama
