I didn’t grow up around Godly people. Out of my entire family? Only my mom is a fellow believer. Out of my friends? Before the last year or two, only two of them. And out of those three people in my life who do believe in God and believe that Jesus is the Son of God and died for our sins, none of them go to church or read their Bibles or even really talk with me (or anyone) about Him.
So please know, from the very bottom of my heart, that I thank God every single day for all of you. Please know that I want to cry when I think about how, in the past two years, God has placed so many wonderful Godly people into my life. I couldn’t see it at the time, but now? I’m looking around myself at all of you, and at my coworkers, and at my church, and at just all of the people I’m surrounded by, and I can see how every single second of every single minute of every single hour of every single day of the past few years really has been all Him.
He is so wonderful, and I am so grateful, and my heart is so filled with love. My past isn’t perfect, but He is. My present isn’t perfect, but He is. He is perfect, and He is good. And so I will lean into Him, no matter what happens, and praise Him and glorify Him and help others to know and love Him, and I will be grateful and thankful every single second of every single minute of every single hour of every single day of the rest of this life He has given me.
If you don’t know Jesus, if you’ve never been to church or read the Bible or if you also, like me, didn’t grow up around Godly people, I’m here for you. And more importantly, God is here for you. He is here for you and He loves you so much and He can and will change your life, one second, one minute, one hour, one day, one year at a time.
He is the reason I’m still here today. He is everything.
Don’t be afraid.
Come. Come to Jesus.
Uggghhh your post about freckle!Dan / curly!Dan made my day. I wanna gush real quick: Dan and Phil have made significant progress since 2012. (2009 in general but u know) They're smiley, confident, optimistic. They used to gripe about being lazy and never leaving the house, but look at them now. Just went on a world tour?¿! Dan still doesn't give a fuck, but in a much better definition now. I've noticed that Phil, a supernova, has reduced the amount of jump-cuts he uses. I ❤️ my confident sons.
