there are places i remember.July 28, 2009 by Karess | Filed under Random.
it was just three years ago when i was an unwitting, unemployed, oversheltered young adult, hating the world and how my life turned out thus far, and not knowing how it would be the next few years. that sunday, the 23rd of july, was cold and rainy, and as my sister and i walked thru the glass doors of that church in the fourth floor of Galleria mall, i had no idea that my life would never be the same after that.
i never really imagined that i would be where i am now. from being unemployed, i have had three jobs–the most recent and current one being my dream job. i’ve also gone thru pushing and pulling, moved to different locations, experienced joys and sorrows, received answered prayers and awesome miracles, and . . . i am still experiencing these things day by day. all because God has made himself known to me–through a relationship with him, first of all, and through relationships with other people. people whom i now consider friends.
our church has just celebrated its 25th anniversary as a movement, and after hearing the stories of the people who’d been around since Day One, i’ve realized that there is only one thing that really matters in this life: honoring God. everything falls into place from there. as we do so, we can make an impact to generations and to nations. Jesus Christ is the glue that holds us all together and makes us complete in spite of our incompleteness.
i am excited to see everything else that will unfold← Previous
