By what is your life defined?

It is a simple question really.

What is your life defined by? This was one of the questions addressed by the Elders of the Church I visited on Sunday. This is an important question to answer, because your whole outlook on, and direction in life will be completely affected by it. First I want you to answer this quick poll to determine what your life is defined by. I want you to really think about it and don’t put down an answer just because it is the most religious answer, we do that enough already. So answer the question honestly.

What defines your life is very important. That is why I wanted you to take the poll. What the Elders pointed out was that our life should not be defined by our job position, our social standing, our bank account, but by our relationship with Jesus Christ. People should know us because we are Christians, not business professionals, or social nerds. I know we all need to work on this, none of us are perfect. I know I am not, by any sense of the word. But this helped me to understand better why living a Christian life is so important. I realized that my life is not defined by my Relationship with Jesus Christ like it needs to be. Sure, many people know that I am a Christian. But when unbelievers look at me, do they see someone who is radically different than everyone else? Am I willing to allow Christ to work through me all the time so that others see the difference? That question is difficult to answer sometime, because of the weakness of the flesh. I don’t always allow Christ to work through me, I don’t always surrender myself completely to him. Nevertheless, that is my desire. I hope it is yours as well. Pray for me, that I would allow God to work through me in such a way that the very being of Jesus Christ defines who I am! I will do the same for you. God bless my brothers and sisters.

Greetings from San Antonio!

Hello everyone.

First of all, I want to say thank you to everyone for praying for me, encouraging me, and being my friend. I pray that for many years to come this will continue. I love each and every one of you, and pray that God would richly bless your life. My life is very good down here in San Antonio. Of course, I have only been here for one week. I am enjoying my new job, and completed training this past week for the Academic Adviser position at CollegePlus! What that means is, if you call CollegePlus!, I will be one of the first ones you talk to! I have been drilled this past week about how the program works, how to answer questions, and the different aspects of my position. The apartments we live in here are very nice. Here is a link so that you can see what they look like. Link to Pictures.

I believe I am going to enjoy it very much. However, there is one drawback. I could not bring my family, whom I love so much, with me. That was probably the hardest part of moving down here. I do know that this is exactly what God wanted me to do, so I am trusting in Him completely. Weather down here has been very nice today and yesterday. It was raining all the rest of the week though. So I walked yesterday and today. I am continually reminded how much I am truly blessed. The Lord continues to lead, guide, and direct me. I am so thankful that we have a God that cares about us, and is extremely interested in our everyday affairs. I am looking forward to what God is going to do in the future. I continue to pray for many of you daily, and ask that you do the same for me. I want to remain faithful to Him in this world of wickedness, sin, and misery. I will continue to keep you updated as to what is happening in my life.

For the Glory of God, and the advancement of His Kingdom,
