We just got back from the Simply Youth Ministry Conference in Chicago and I was challenged, refreshed and overall, better equipped and in better connection with my team. It was awesome to see some of the people that I look up to in ministry and be able to interact with them.
As I look back on the conference, I am challenged to continue to discover my true identity in my relationship with Christ and not my relationship with other people and their views of me. I am challenged to discover what it means to do things for the Glory of God, even in the little things that I do. I am challenged to put the most important things first in my life. And there are some things that are required of me in order to do accomplish some of these goals.
I have noticed that my mind has been so bottled up and beginning of taking over my demeanor as of the last two days. I am confident that the reason is that I haven't written anything and have neglected that area of my life. And so this is me launching back into writing regularly. I never thought that this would be such a huge part of my life and discipline in following Christ, however I am committed to doing whatever it takes to grow closer to God and this is one of them. Writing, or blogging, is part of who I am. I am unashamed in that. And so this will become part of my life.
So, looking forward, I am excited to see what God is going to teach me about my ministry and my life. I am excited to see what He chooses to reveal to me about my identity in Christ and the things that are most important to Him as He looks on me. I will be unashamed for who I am, what I look like, how I act. Why?
Because I am Good Enough. period
