grey area.

January 6, 2011

defined as “1) something ill defined, or uncertain

2) the best coffee shop in Amsterdam”

grey area. i’m not even sure if this makes sense, but that’s what came to mind when i think of the first half of my freshman year in high school. it has been honestly the most fun and confusing time of my life. fun- i’ve made SO many new friends and have enjoyed of school. confusing- i’m still trying to figure out my motives for school. i feel like sometimes my motives are to gain friends, have fun, and make memories. but shouldn’t they be to shine the light of Jesus to one of the darkest places in the valley? and although i know it, i’ve lacked that this year. my youth group often emphasizes living with a purpose because life moves fast. and when life moves fast, shouldn’t there be some intention? more than making friends and memories? when i look back on this year, theres been a lot of grey little shades.. moments i could laugh about something, or moments when i could be intentional. and guess what i chose to do? well, laugh. because sometimes that’s easier than impacting peoples lives. easier than bringing the Kingdom. for now, i’ll be praying and praying that this semester will be different than before. that 2011 will be the year of not only laughing and loving life, but loving Jesus and making him known more than ever before.

happy wedensday. wedsneday. WEDNESDAY. [i just thought you should see the struggle that i go through. you see, i’m the worlds WORST speller :) ]

    you are a freshman in high school, you’re cute as a button, your pictures never cease to amaze me, and your heart for the Lord is absolutely incredible. can i go back 5 years and be you? but really, your smiley, giggly joy (that’s clear even in your blog) makes Jesus look great, and with a purpose like that you can’t go wrong :)
