a relationship with God
I am so sad that I can so often talk about my relationship with God in such a casual, taking-it-for-granted manner. I know that I will never be able to fully comprehend this awesome privilege I have to come to my Father, my Heavenly Father, unable to hide my flaws and failures because He knows me so intricately. But...I don't want to take it for granted. I spoke with a girl today at the PSC who wants to have a "better relationship with God" but I do not think she is a believer. It was difficult to say to her, "without trusting Christ as your Savior, you don't have a relationship with God" but it had to be said. I know it has her thinking, but it also has me thinking of how grateful I am. I am thankful, so thankful to be a child of God - having the only answer to share with this girl about what is truely missing in her life. There are many girls that come to our center, but there are some that just grip my heart more than others. I pray that I will have a heart for the lost and a boldness to tell them how it really is. I know God is at work and I pray He will use my imperfect attempt to share His truth with her. Praise God for this awesome opportunity today!
