Today I went to church, which I like to do most weeks. Anyway, I had a revelation. So if you are a Christian you have heard the gospel. Jesus came down from Heaven to take the form of a poor man. He lived a perfect life, was beaten beyond what we can imagine and murdered on a cross. Three days later he ROSE from the dead, (which he stated many times). Why? Because we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God as scriptures stated. Our sin deserves death and eternal punishment. But, because Christ death on the cross, He has paid it all. He said, "It is finished". How great is our God?!?! So that is the gospel. Christ died so that we may live. So here is the Revelation I got today from the messages spoken at Church. Because he died on the cross I have just accepted that as the truth that saves me from eternal punishment, my key to know God and my reward. But today for the first time it went beyond what He did for me but how His death is sacrifice is an example for me to live the SAME way. I have heard it and even said that he is an example for me but today I really grasp what that mean. As it says in Matt. 20:28 :the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many". This is what Christ did for us but this is also a mandate to us. We are called to literally die to self, serve others and give our life as a ransom for many. If you are anything like me, you have fallen short. This is not new to me, but it has become more real to me today then it has ever. So join me as I strive to be like Christ, giving my life as a ransom for many.

This is my second post within 20 min. or less. If you have not read my first post please do. Its the introduction to this whole thing.
I have thought long and hard about getting a blog, but it has taken me months to actually do it. I just don't know what I am getting myself into. You will soon find out that I am not the best grammatically. I write how I communicate verbally, which most people do, but I don't talk well, at all. Often my friend Dana criticizes my poor grammar when I text. And I am sure that will not be much different in my blogging.
Now you maybe wondering, "Why does she have a blog then"? I am wondering the same thing. A few months ago I decided that I would write a book. As we go along with this blog I will give you more info about how that is going, or not going. When I started to write this book, many people encouraged me to get a blog. Honestly I am at a road block trying to figure out if this is a wise decision. I often wonder if people will think I have good things to say as much as I think I do. Or if I am able to write a fairly good book. Though my heart is in the right place and I just don't know if I am the person to write such a book.
My hopes for this blog is for you all to get to know me, my desires, Jesus and Christianity, Social Work, and my life. This blog does not one direction, its all encompassing. You will get to take a step into my brain and life. Anything goes here, anything. So join me as I take you on this journey. You can message me and ask me any questions and I will do my best to answer. If I don't have the answer I will do my best to find it. My desire through this is to figure out if I can be a writer, so it would be helpful if you guys would give me some insight on my writing.
GET TO KNOW ME, BABY!!
