I never expected this high from the NYG to last this long. I expected it to be a short-term thing, and then reality would set in. So far, it hasn’t. Well, reality is there, but it doesn’t seem to be affecting me like it usually does. (aka, bringing me down, freaking me out, stress) Sure, there have been stressful moments, but they seem pretty short-lived. I just keep thinking about how much God loves me. And what a great friend he is. I’m never alone. That is awesome.
I’ve also given a lot of thought to the type of person I appear to be. I try to reference God at least once a day. To someone. I want the world to know that I LOVE JESUS and that GOD is the reason I can get up everyday and know that I can handle whatever life throws my way.
An example of this new-ish attitude has been noted by the members of the cast and crew of the musical I am in. Everyone has really cleaned up their language. The director stated at the beginning of rehearsals that he cusses a lot, and if any of us had a problem with it, he would try to refrain. I didn’t say anything, but just never used any of those words, and often wore a religious shirt. (Not necessarily on purpose. I just have a lot of those) I even had one of the cast ask me how long I’d been involved in my church, what kinds of things I do there, etc.
I’ve been trying to be a Christian, not just call myself one. After being around 25,000 youth that were charged up about being a Christian, it’s hard not to jump in and join them!
