This is going to be super quick if at all possible because I have much to do, but I feel it is necessary to let any of you that follow my blog know that I am doing much better today than I was when I wrote my last two entries. This weekend I attended Main Event, The Navigator’s fall conference for the heartland region, in downtown Kansas City (about 2 hours from K-State’s campus, and 35 mins from where I grew up). I had the blessed opportunity to meet some amazing people from the University of Kansas (yes, to my surprise there are quite delightful people who attend my rival university), other students from Kansas State, people from Miami, Ohio and many others. It was great to see so many different perspectives and so many different people who follow Jesus in one place.
My heart for those who do not know Jesus Christ as their LORD and Savior probably tripled this weekend, as I know that my relationship with Him is honestly the only thing that I have worth living and dying for. It’s the very essence of who I am and Christ alone provides me with the strength to persevere when the going gets tough; as recent semesters and trials with body-image, etc have certainly proven to produce.
There is much that I’ve learned and would love to share with many of you, so perhaps over the next day or two when I decide to take a long enough break from homework and other affairs, I will share that with you in an upcoming post. I just simply wanted to take the time to let you know that God truly does answer prayers and that once again He has proven Himself incredibly faithful to reignite my heart and allow me to feel alive once again. Hopefully this isn’t just some sort of “Jesus High” that one could get from attending a summer camp as a little kid. I believe that it is not. As long as I commit myself to staying in the Scriptures and pursuing deeper relationships with my brothers and sisters in Christ, then I’m certain that the flame within my heart will continue to burn bright, which will once again live up to the theme of this blog in the first place…I want to “Ignite the flame and set the world ablaze with the light of Christ!” and I desperately want to learn how to lead myself and others towards Embracing God’s Grace.
