Passionately Passionate

Home from Passion; please excuse my crazy eyes:

I would like to praise God for all that He has done for me. I want to declare the praises of Him who has called me out of darkness and into His marvelous light. Thank God for the Passion conference, the hearts of those that want to rally our generation into an army for the Lord. Thank God for chocolate vanilla swirl ice cream, sweaters with reindeer on them, bearded hipster men, the Word of God and bowls of spaghetti.

It was weird waking up this morning without all of my best friends. Passion 2014 is over, which means no more 1 am Waffle House trips, no more card games on the bus, no more worshipping together in the arena. And that saddens me.

But while my best friends aren't always around, I do have the Lord Jesus Christ as a constant source of comfort, inspiration and strength throughout my every moment.

This morning I sat before Him with a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats, and the book of Jeremiah. I earned that although I am small, fearful and afraid a lot of the time, God is using me (and will use me!) regardless.

I am more than a child who doubts, who doesn't have the right words. I am a vessel for God's love and glory. Insecurity has no place here.

"Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you, and will rescue you," declares the Lord. ~ Jeremiah 1:8

How about that.
