Life like a country song.

July 2, 2010

So I just got back from being in another country.

And my life right now sounds like a country song.

I came back to my fiance breaking up with me. I found out someone stole my identity and spent over a couple hundred bucks with it. And because its past the time to have noticed it, I will probably have to pay that bill. My job has been outsourced, so I am not fired but have no work. A couple rings I once bought are past the return date.  And there are boils covering my body.

Okay so the boils thing isn’t true.

And if you’re still reading this you are probably a really good friend. Because when I start to read depressing things like this I usually click on something else because I don’t like to read depressing things.

Why be real on this blog and talk about all my junk? Idk. Cuz I feel like it.

My friend Dayne tells me that in my life when it rains it pours. He told me that before I knew half of these things were happening to me. I really believe him in this moment.  Also I realize that when my life is bad most of my friends lives are good.  So if your my friend and reading this you are probably having a great life right now.

So that’s my life right now.

But something I realized is I might be struck down right now, but I am not destroyed.

That’s a good feeling to have. Because I know a lot of people who have been destroyed by a similar situation.  And I know many people without Christ would feel completely destroyed.

And that’s a beautiful thing about Christ. Right now I just feel like I am getting knocked down.

And Christ keeps picking me back up and saying “you can do it”. Or some kind of inspiring thing like that. But actually I don’t really hear an encouraging “you can do it”. I think maybe it’s just inspiring and hope giving that I don’t have to pick myself back up.

Christ is beautiful. I love him. There is nothing more awesome then realizing that to a higher degree.

People don’t like hard times. And neither do I. But if it helps me glimpse who Christ is, and what he does in my heart, I am down.

And besides that I have gotten to realize the amount of amazing Christ centered friends in my life. That’s always awesome.

So that’s my life. If you have been apart of my life lately I love and thank you. Keep praying for me right now as I am growing up a bit more.

Also if anyone has a spare few thousand dollars I am okay with taking that off your hands.

    Hey there, Man of God: Men and women who are called to minister to others will of necessity experience some degree (perhaps a greater degree) of suffering if they are to be the compassionate, effective leaders they so desire. Experiencing Christ’s love in the midst of suffering is an invaluable gift that you will always take with you. God is enlarging your heart right now in ways you cannot imagine. You will never be the same. You will not fall or stumble, because the Lord is lifting you up (and many are praying for you!) “The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from ALL their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:17-18

    Love you!
