For the longest time, I said that I wanted to be a journalist. I loved writing (still do, obviously.) and I loved sharing truth. I wanted to be a truth-seeker and I wanted to share the truth everywhere. Being a Christian Journalist seemed like the perfect option for me, for various other reasons. I actually kind of clung to that into this year of High School, and did an absurd amount of studying, preparing and of course, writing, for the next couple of years. I looked up good Christian colleges, found the ones that offered good classes…then all of a sudden, God kind of nudged me and told me that I was going the wrong way. I prayed, and I did research on other things that could possibly fit my life better. And then, I prayed some more. It wasn’t until I was lurking on Ray Comfort’s Facebook page one evening and actually got to have a discussion with him, that I realized what I was being called to do.
Biblical Ministry. Call it Evangelism, witnessing….but that, that’s what God has been leading me towards all this time.
He’s been shaping me, molding me, and making me become a bolder, stronger, and more confident witness. He’s brought people into my life not only to bring me closer to Him and help me and teach me, but He’s brought people in my life that made me realize how important it is to witness and be a tool for Christ. To be His soldier, a fisher of men. I thank those unsaved friends, because they were one of the many things that God used to show me where I need to go. I get so much joy when I get to pray with someone who is lost. There’s nothing better for me, nothing that brings me more happiness or pure excitement, than telling someone who doesn’t know about my Savior, how graceful He is. That He came as the Son of man to die for us, and save us all from our sins. That death had no sting, and that He rose again.
the spreading of the Christian gospel by public preaching or personal witness.
zealous advocacy of a cause.
So, because I’m….well, me, I started researching more and more. I found good options for me, I found a good college that I’m 99.9% sure about, and I have a huge peace about my future. As far as when I’m doing it, I’m hoping to graduate early and start some early college courses. And we’ll see where it (God) ends up taking me.Someone asked Will the heathen who have never heard the Gospel be saved? It is more a question with me whether we — who have the Gospel and fail to give it to those who have not — can be saved. — Charles SpurgeonWe talk of the Second Coming; half the world has never heard of the first. — Oswald J. SmithHe is not seeking a powerful people to represent HIM. Rather, He looks for all those who are weak, foolish, despised, and written off: and He inhabits them with His own strength. — Graham Cooke
