What a wonderful outlook he has in life. Not only that, but he understands this at a young age of 24.
There have been plenty of times in my life that all has been turned upside down and all the plans I had, vanished.
What I have been learning here and as of late is that I have been putting my desires before those of God.
Boy oh boy, I can truly understand and relate to this more than anything. Strange, I have always tried to control things in my life and when things have not gone according to plan... well I basically gave up.
Recently, since I have been attending church regularly, studying the Bible, given God a place in my life... well I feel better. It's not to say that miraculously everything in my life is spectacular... it's not. However, the faith in God which is growing inside of me is making me feel that I can accomplish anything.
I know that I have a long road ahead of me and that's okay. Even better is that I know the road that I will be traveling will not be traveled alone. I will be walking with God.
Because I know He is First.... and I am Second.
We are Second when we put Jesus First. Seconds are bold to lift up Jesus and tell others. Are you ready to become a stronger Second?
I challenge YOU to take the I Am Second  Day Challenge... Can you spare maybe fifteen minutes in a day?
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. ~James 1:5-8 (NIV)
I AM SECOND.
[here's to you finding your... ]
... for a, l & c. You are my sunshine(s).
