Your life will never be the same!

It was a crazy week! Wow! I could tell you millions of God stories from my eyes or from the eyes of others.

One thing I know, when you run into God, and you feel His presence and His love, your life will never be the same again.

On Thursday, Christian Artist (Rapper) Icris came to do an outreach concert at the Devos Center. He said something so profound, and yet so simple. He said something like "when you're a Christian, you don't necessarily stop sinning, but you don't like it".

I am not perfect, and you know, I can drop an "F" bomb like no one else, but when I do, after, my skin squirms. I say I'm sorry. There are a lot of things I do that people don't understand. I've had so many people say to me "that's silly, what's the big deal? Everyone does it". I don't want to live like everyone else, I want to live like I love God. I want to see the beauty in me, like God sees it, not the ugliness that has been pointed out to me in so many ways because of things I've done.

I can tell you the moment when I first said "God, You are what I want". When I really decided that I wanted to be changed by Him. I can tell you that everyday I'm growing, I'm learning what it's like to love Him more by living His way. It isn't about can or can't, it's about love. It's about living without (or less) consequences. It's all about the love.

You're life will never be the same once You've encountered Christ and His love.


1 Cor 15:50-52 50I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. 51Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.
