Most Important Blog to Date.....

Good Monday Morning Everyone!!!!!!!! Over the weekend something has rocked my world, rocked me to the core to the point that I know after this weekend my life will never be the same. I am a passionate person; I know you guys already know that. I love the Lord with all my heart and He has done so much in my life that anything less would truly be sack religious. The path I was headed down and the path I am on are literally as different as night and day and I owe it all to my Savior. Sometimes people feel like we Christians are shoving things down their throat and I can totally understand where they are coming from. The truth is, for some of us, we have literally been so transformed that we cannot help but tell the world. It isn’t something we “try” to do or want to do, it is literally something our tongues could not avoid because it is too amazing not to share. I accepted Christ as my Savoir at a young age but didn’t come under Bible teaching until I was 23. From that year, 2003, until now my world has been rocked. All the years before I was so defeated but something changed and I have never been able to fully describe it. One thing I am 110% certain of is that it wasn’t something I did in my own power. I had tried that for years, pull up your boot straps and get it together had never worked before so I am certain that wasn’t it. As I have grown, I have, not with judgment, just observation, looked around and wondered why all Christians weren’t like me. Please, please here me say I am certainly NOT saying perfect. Nothing could be further from the truth over even these last few years but maybe the word would be free, victorious, on fire, or in awe. I don’t know. I must say again, it has not been in judgment because that could only occur if I were able to give myself any credit for this season and as I said that is certainly not the case. Something inside my heart has screamed for more since 2003. I want more, I often look at Christians I see and wonder why I am so weird? Why do I want more? Why can’t I just have Jesus, be free, and now blend in? Why do I have to be the odd ball out? I know people have politely thought to themselves, “she is a little much, a little too over the top, a little too excited for my taste.” Well, this weekend I started listening to a sermon series that has put to words all that my heart has been screaming for years. I wanted to ask everyone to listen, but I know that is not realistic. Then I am tempted to ask only the ones who want more too, but then I think that is selling so many of you short who maybe aren’t even aware that is an option. So I guess I am just asking you to give it a shot. If you hate it DO NOT send me comments. I am all about having a teachable spirit and this is something that agreed with my spirit to the point that I literally felt it leap in me as Elizabeth did with John the Baptist in her womb. So, if you don’t agree with this message, let’s agree to disagree on the forefront. I feel like for years people have been telling me no and FINALLY someone is telling me yes! I will also say that this is a long series and I am writing after only 3 messages but let’s listen to them all, but you have got to get through #3 at a bare minimum! Please let this rock your world too! Let’s please, please, please stop settling! I love you all!

Changed for Life,
