The simple things in life.
For thought I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more; and to the Jews I became as a Jew, That I might win Jews; to those who are under the law, as under the law, that I might win those who are under the law; to those who are without law, as without law (not being without law toward God, but under law toward Christ), that I might win those who are without the law; to the weak I became as weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. Now this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I may be partaker of it with you.
Who are we hanging out with?
Are you being purposeful with the people you are spending time with?
Are we only hanging out with Christians?
Questions that have been running through my mind.
How do you make someone curious about the gospel?
How does my giving and sharing and loving show that I am apart from the world?
How is Christ glorified through my relationships with people?
Before I went to italy… All i could think of was saving up money for Italy. I realized my days were dreadful. I didn’t want to go to work, I didn’t want to face customers, I didn’t want to deal with having to work under my parents. I just did what I did… simply to pay bills & to save up for a mini dream of mine.
And, as you all know now… I am back in the states.
I’m not sure if its the fact that I recovered by sleeping to my dearest content practically everyday, or its the fact that I had time to think in Florence. Think about my life. Think about my future. Be able to BE inspired by the gospel. Being inspired my Jesus. Being inspired by the people who were living their dreams. Doing things that I normally didn’t do because I had all the time in the world….
what I’m trying to say is that…. I came back to San Diego with a purpose. A drive to work harder. A passion to serve. A thankful heart for what I have here. Things that I easily looked over because of repetition or even thinking I deserve everything. & with this renewed mind, I have more energy, more joy, and a whole lot more love for the people around me.
How amazing a day becomes, when your life is lived In Him, through Him, and For Him.
Prayers are answered, my heart seems to race a bit more, and life seems to be more delightful.
