I'm sure if I asked you guys this you would probably say: "baker, cooker, teenager, a girl, snowboarder, etc." And, you'd be right about each of those. But, I am also something else. I'm sure you've noticed that I've made references to God a couple of times and even said I was thankful that Jesus Christ was my Lord and Savior. I probably had you wondering if I was a Religious person or a Catholic, or maybe someone who believes in God.
So, what am I? A Christian. Not Religious, not a Catholic. A sinner saved by the blood of Jesus Christ - (Romans 3:23...For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God). And, yes...I believe there is a God. Why? Because after studying Chemistry and Biology in my high school years I have learned that absoultely with a doubt there is a God. My parents taught me from ever since I can remember that evolution was not true, God created this whole universe. I believed there was a God, because my parents said so. But once I started in Biology and Chemistry I knew then why I believed in God. For all the intricate details that have to be met in order for this earth to function properly and for us to live, would only be the desgin of God...not by chance.
And, I am thankful everyday that God decided to call me His Child. Being a Child of God doesn't mean I am perfect, not by any means (ask my brothers or sisters!) but, it means that I have a personal relationship with the God who created this whole universe and holds it in the palm of His Hands. What could be more awesome than that? It also means having Someone whom I can run to when I feel all alone, and having Someone who can calm my greatest fears. And also knowing that whatever happens, be it good or bad...I still have God right there beside me.
We went snowboarding yesterday and it was a glorious 40 degrees. See the above picture? That was taken not long before I was sprawled on the ground. I crashed into Steven and hit his helmet with my upper lip. Why did I crash? I was going rather fast and didn't have time to stop before I hit him, what we call an accident. My left half of my lip is big, lopsided, and purple and blue, a fat lip. My brother was threating to take pictures of me like and this and post it on my blog...I don't think I'd have any readers left if he did!
Have a great rest of a Sunday and I'll see you next with a cute Valentines Day giveaway!
