Surrending your life to God isn't about being boring.....

Year ago when my Father passed away, I had a pastor come into the room and ask me if I knew Jesus Christ as my personal savior. At that time, I did know Jesus Christ and I told the pastor that was the one thing that was giving me peace about my Father going home to be with the Lord! The thing is, I did believe in God, but I needed to go one step furthur! I needed to get saved and feel his presence in my life! Today, I am saved and I love sharing the good news with others! Why do you think others don't like the Christian life? I believe it's because not only do they have to live on Faith, and that is something that most human beings cannot do because they only want to believe in what they can see. I also believe it's because they think we live a boring life! If your a Christian, you can't listen to Country Music, you can't go out on the town with friends, you can't have sex before marriage, you can't live with someone out of wedlock! These are just a few of the things that God asks us to be obdient about! I know that not every day is easy for me, there are times I want to do it my way! God is just and he will correct his children! Nothing happens in this world by "Luck" or "Coinsidence". Where I am today, including this wonderful website, was not by my doing alone! God wants me to be healthy! He will open up doors if it is his will! Too many times we want our way, we want him to answer prayers now! I am grateful for prayers answered and those that wern't answered the way I wanted them.
Life isn't boring or a coincidence with God! It's amazing! Look at what he has created outside? It is so lovely to look outside and to be thankful for all of these things! If you think life is boring with God, then think how boring it would be to be without God, to be alone, to be unhappy with your life because you keep trying to fill the voids in your life that only God can fill! It's time to start living for God before it's too late!
