lately i feel like i have been consumed with other things that are not Christ. it's so easy for me to get caught up in life and forget what's really important. i often think that i don't want life to happen to me. i don't want to be sitting at home 30 years from now wondering how God used me. i'm sure no one wants that. but i think that it's the days, moments, choices, that make up a life. sometimes we hope that the next day will be different or maybe the one after that. one of the most awesome things about God is that we don't have to wait for the next day, we can change today, right now. so i pray for just that. i want to be consumed with God himself and nothing else.
