"Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them obey everything I have commanded you." Matthew 28:19-20
This passage tells us that we are to be disciples of Jesus Christ; just as His chosen ones were in the Scriptures. How does that make you feel? Are you ready for that kind of responsibility? Do really think YOU are called to do this?
When we read Scripture as a whole we learn of what the disciples went through in order to teach and spread God's Word. They were persecuted, beaten, and even killed. Yet-NOT ONCE did they ever turn in fear and quit! We do not have the persecutions in this Country as the disciples did then; yet we can not seem to spread the Word as quickly as the first disciple did! Go to other Countries and people are being murdered for worshiping God and reading the Scriptures; yet they do not stop! And here, in the US, MANY CHOOSE NOT to worship or read Scriptures or teach as we are called! This makes me so ill to my stomach!!
How can people CHOOSE to not love and obey they Lord?! I just don't get it! I have recently decided to make it my goal to reach as many as I can with God's Word and spread His commands! I am willing to go to all the Nations! I am willing to stay here and do this command in the US. Whatever God calls me to do!
I am now challenging all of you to do the.same! Go! Obey your Father! Do as He has commanded you to do! Don't allow Jesus dieing on the Cross to be in vein! YOU WERE PLACED HERE TO SERVE GOD-NOT YOURSELF!!!
God Bless You all on your journey with the Lord!

I can honestly say that no one has ever called me "normal"! That is just fine with me! God created me to stand out, be different, be weird, and not blend in with the world.
There are definately many personalities floating around in my mind. This makes for quite an interesting day with me! It is "Grand Central Station" up there! I have even 'named them'! (Don't send in the troops just yet)
The great thing about having such diversity is that there is never a dull moment with me! I always make sure that heading up this little party in my mind is the Lord God Himself!
God has shown me how to embrace the 'fun' inside me and use it to better His Kingdom! I have found that I don't have to be a 'stick in the mud' to be a Christian. I am a child of God! I am a Chrsitian! I am a follower of Christ! I AM HIS! Every day I am working toward becoming a better Disciple! I will NEVER be perfect - but I am SAVED; so that is all that matters!!
