so like, in all seriousness, i LOVE my personal Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and i’m not ashamed to say it. think what you may, but honestly, even if i dont have a super testimony or anything, i can attest to the fact that He has changed my life. big or small, it doesnt matter, the fact that i’m a different person than without Christ makes me happy. its just this amazing feeling of dead weight lifted off your shoulders. i think this tsunami state youth conference has made the most impact in my life. maybe its because i was being super receptive to what the speakers had to say. they really did get to the nitty gritty of my heart. and like i said, it was amazing. i’ve really never realized how much Jesus loves me and how awesome He is.
when Pastor Efrem Smith spoke about the impala, i realized that my three foot wall was myself. my temptations werent anything worldly like drugs or alcohol or materialistic items but my i guess my pride. im a pretty prideful person and i dont even know what about. come to think of it, im not even that great a person. as a matter of fact, i’m a piece of scum to this earth. but, Jesus still loves me and treats me like the princess i shouldnt even get a thought of a chance to be. it hasnt ceased to amaze me yet.
and when the alter call came around and i saw these crowds of people just give themselves or rededicate themselves to Christ, i felt so happy for them. and i didnt even know why. well of course i knew why, but like, i just couldnt help myself but to feel so overwhelmingly happy for them. it was euphoric, and thats an understatement. i felt so happy that i wanted to cry for them. because thats how great God is. i just felt this overwhelming flow of surrender and peace. it was nice.
and this is only a mere fraction of what i got out of this tsunami experience. theres just so much to say that i dont know how to say it. im really just in awe. seriously though, God is good. and thats really all i can say. <3
- Dwight: Is this a joke?
- Michael: If I were joking, you would be laughing. Do you look like you're laughing?
- Dwight: Impossible to say. I can't see myself.
- Michael: You're not.
