Okay..Canadians have no idea whats going on in the States. It makes me mad when people are all pro obama but really have no idea what is going on and what this means for Americans. The States is going down hill and thats going to affect Canadians too. Either way, I know that God is in control, and even though the world is going to go into destruction really soon, we have to trust in God because He is the true ruler of all!
Yesterday, one of my covenant leaders said something that really got me thinking. She told us about these hippies she talked to in Moab and how they were travelling around and living in this van together to just explore the world. My initial thoughts were “that sounds amazing, I wish I could drive around everywhere and anywhere with my best friend to just experience this world”, but as she continued she talked about how they didn’t believe in God, and how they were travelling to live and get away in search for something more. She asked them why they were travelling, and what the wanted to get out of it, and they responded by saying, “We only live once, so we’re just experiencing this world” It was the first time I ever really thought about that statement. I never would have heard that story and thought about how they doing anything meaningless by travelling and exploring this world. But then I thought about what the term “YOLO” means, we say it just thinking that we’re just going do something because “why not?” But really, as Christians we live eternally…we don’t live just once. I mean, I still like using the term YOLO because it makes me excited to really live. But these guys Steph talked to were exploring this world in search of something more, in search for something meaningful. And when I think about it, I want to live a TRULY meaningful life…a life for God, not just for satisfaction. Because reality is, we are never going to find meaning and satisfaction in doing the things of this world. We can only find true meaning in Him who created us. So I hope anyone who is reading this will take this story as inspiration, like I did. Live a life of meaning. Do it for the glory of God. Because anything you think will make yourself satisfied, is just temporary. But living a life for God is eternal.
