I'm a Christian. In my life, God is first.
I know that a lot of times I get distracted, and there are other things that come before God, and I want that to not be the case.
I don't have a clue what I'm doing in life, but I know that He is going to direct me into it. I don't know what I'm in school for, but surely whatever I learn will be put to good use.
I don't know who I am. I don't know what my purpose in life is, but when I find my sign, my true calling, there won't be any turning back.
As for now, until that time comes, I'm going to live my life to the fullest. I'm going to enjoy every breath that God has given to me and be thankful simply for life.
Even when people drag me down, which seems to happen a lot, I know that I have a good foundation in the Lord, and no one is going to hold me back. When buildings are destroyed, the foundation remains. With God, all things are possible, even the rebuilding of something. When I am ripped upon and hurt, I heal, and when I heal, I'm stronger than I was before. It's what happens when you learn.
I try to be the best person I can. I know I'm not perfect, but that's not an excuse. It's extremely difficult when the media sets the standard for people.
I know I need to be who God wants me to be, and not a 'model', but a real disciple. I want people to see me as someone they can look up to, while seeing that I am still a follower.
I am a soldier in this army of one, and the battle is already won.
I pray for you, and that's who I am. That's what I do. Even if you don't want me to.

A Song of Daniel

Someone I know wrote this on a prayer retreat last weekend. His dad posted it on facebook, and I read it and was really touched by it.
So I'm posting it here for you to read.

Written by Danny Hayward

Oh Lord of Lords
Why do you not clearly reveal yourself to the wicked?
Why do you not show yourself to the faithful?
How do we know where to fidn you and how do we get your strength?
Even when you take us to quiet places how do we tell its you?
When you clothe us in your cloak we feel comforted
But we do not know why.
How could we ever repay you for your unconditional love and fathership?
You take care of your flock even when we fly from your presence.
That is what love is.
