How have you been? I've been doing good!
I wanted to share with you something that I experienced Wednesday night. I went to my church's youth group for the first time ever, and it was amazing. I felt like I really needed to be there, and God knew that.
I met one nice girl in particular that was really nice and welcoming. And a nice guy from my co-op place, played the drums in the youth band, and I talked with him for a little. All of the people there were so nice and welcoming. I was extremely nervous going, as I didn't know a single person there, and I'm really shy. But now I'm so glad I went.
The sermon was about love. This verse is what we talked about mostly: 1 Corinthians 13: 1-3 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
It made me think a lot.
Even though you might be the smartest person in the world, without love, we are nothing.
Even though you might have tremendous faith in God, without love, we are nothing.
Even though you might make tremendous sacrifices, and even die for your beliefs, without love, we have gained nothing.
I know I don't usually do posts like this, but I felt like I needed to post about my experience Wednesday.
I am definitely going back Wednesday. Even though I am shy and being in large groups makes me nervous, it was an awesome experience, and I want to go back and try and make some friends and learn more about God.
Thanks for reading guys! I love y'all! (Yes, the Texan part in me just showed! :D)
