Half My Life...


Today, i will have been a Jesus-Follower for Half of my life. A guy befriended me in this psychology class at McNeese. He spent a couple months getting to know me and letting me get to know him.

Then he invited me to this multi-church thing at the Civic Center. He called it a Revival. I asked, what's a revival? "Oh, you'll meet some of my friends from church, we'll sing some songs from church, and this dude will talk out of the Bible," he answered.

My response: "Why the hell not."

So that night I heard the Gospel of Jesus for I think the first time. I'd been to a church as a kid, but don't remember hearing that I needed a savior. That night, I was in college, running my life, feeling the emptiness in me and trying to mask it. I was unaware of the love of a God who reached out to me from the incomparable riches of His mercy, so that I could be rescued.

Half.

What a wild ride so far. It's gonna be rockin to see what God has in store next!
