reaching out.

Since my accident I've been really focused on talking to people, not even specifically about God but just in general. Usually I don't say much in my classes, I'm tired and trying to focus. But I hung out a little with a girl from my class yesterday before we went to class and it was cool. With the exciting Cru/Wesley Foundation gathering happening tonight and tomorrow I'm excited for people to come hear about something that matters most to me. Also, I love when God shows up in little ways and speaks. This is what I read yesterday:

"How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?" - Romans 10:14

That has stuck with me. It just goes to show the importance of us on this earth as followers of Jesus. We really are here to share the news with everyone and change lives and hearts. I don't think anything is more powerful than that.

In other news, I'm doing well. I'm actually surprised about how unaffected I feel these days about the accident. Of course, I'm still impacted by it. But the results have been amazing. If I thought I was following Jesus closely before, it's nothing compared to now. My only thoughts have been to live for Him and it's changed how I think and act and speak every day. There is a lot of positivity coming out of something bad.

I'll leave you with this:

"Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom." - James 2:12

i'm glad you're doing much better than i ever did. i knew you'd be closer to God through it. that happens. it's typically one or the other. i lost it, you gained even more.

and about the skinny jeans...this was just too much skinny and tight. it was gross.
