Happy St.Patricks/”Birthday” Day!

Today is St. Patricks day as you most like are quite aware of. I’m not exactly sure I understand everything about St. Patricks day besides the fact that it deals with green, luck, and a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. But for me, St.Patricks day is so much more than just a day, or a holiday even. March 17th, 2003 is the day in which I found God.

I didn’t grow up in church, I didnt know anything about the Bible, religion, God, Jesus…everything…I was (basically) completely oblivious to it all. It actually amazes me how much I have learned over the years and how much I have changed since I first found God. I was never a bad kid, I never did much wrong. In fact, I didn’t actually starting doing normal “teenager” stuff until after I found God. I have been influenced in negative ways for years by my brothers and their friends, but I am quite proud how I have turned out. I have A LOT to improve on, but I am proud to say that I know where my maturity stands, where my beliefs are leaning, and I know what I want to do with my life. Even though I lost god (well, walked away, I guess) for a couple years…He still loves me through it all and I feel so blessed that He welcomed me back with arms wide open.

I only have 43 school days left and I pray that the Lord will use me for his glory in the last days I have at my school.

I cannot wait to see where I stand with the Lord 6 years from this date on March 17th, 2015. Sounds forever away, but I know it will blow by quite fast.
