All to Him.

So I'm pretty sure I posted this video before, it's called Honeymoon with Jesus.. <---right there---
Anyways. I watch that video a lot cause I have it saved in my favorites bar so that I remember it. :) That video really means a lot though. Seriously, think about it.

 Is Jesus enough? He is enough.
Am I satisfied with Him? He is ALL I need.
Could I live on Him alone? I can live on Him alone. 

After reading that you're thinking..."ummm, whoa. conceited in relationship with God much?"
Nope, not at all. Cause here's the catch.

Is Jesus enough? He is enough. But I don't give Him full control. 
Am I satisfied with Him? He is ALL I need. But I don't let Him be everything.
Could I live on Him alone? I can live on Him alone. I can, but I don't give Him the chance.

I wrote those questions, then I was just looking at them thinking of the answers, and the catches...and I just realized when I was just writing the catches. The problem, with every single one is my pride, and laziness, and timidness to trust Him. It's all faith. If we give Him that control, EVERYTHING, that chance to take over. HE WILL. Cause He wants to be Lord of our lives. God CAN take care of me. He WILL take care of me.

Now that I went off on a tangent that had nothing to with what I was originally going to post...let's get to where I was going.

My title. Sold out.
Tonight in our youth lesson our youth pastor was talking about giving all to God.
Being God's. 
Living for Him.
Having that relationship.
Being sold out.
Living out God's plan.
There's a song that we sing at a children's program I teach and it goes like this...

"Oh I used to sit and wonder, 
as I gaze up at the sky.
 If my life would have a purpose. 
or if it would just go by. 

Though I still have many questions, 
I don't worry anymore.
I see something that I've never seen before.

God has a plan for me. 
Yes, I've begun to see.
...(can't remember this part)...
I'll put my trust in Him. 
The One who set me free.
Yes I know God has a plan.
Yes I know God has a plan. 
A plan for me.

I love that song so much. Specially that last part. 
Put my future in His hands. Cause I know God has a plan. A plan for ME.
Imagine hundreds of kids singing that. Yeah, it's beautiful.
But even though it's a kid's song, it gets to me. 
It's perfect for the way I'm feeling.
What's stopping us?
Seriously. What can we lose for God?
Would we really have to give up that much?
Not really. He just wants us to love Him.
Serve Him.
Live for Him.
After all, He gave us everything. Can't we give Him a teensy weensy bit?

Is Jesus Enough?
Can we give Him our future?
Can we live for Him?
Will we live for Him?
Will we love Him?
Will we serve Him?

I hope the answer is yes.

Sweet Summertime. :)

Whoaa buddy. I've been such a bad blogger this summer.
Ohh well. Summer's been pretty swell. :)

1. I went to a freakin awesome basketball camp with my basketball buddy, Chloe. :)
2. I fractured my leg from an epic ultimate frisbee dive (resulting in some epic road rash.) combined with basketball camp and keeping on going. I thought, "oh yeah, I've pulled a muscle or something. Let's not be a wimp and stop playing" so I kept on going...for a month. and got a nice stress fracture and had to quit running, basketball, everything for two months.
3. Went vacationing with the family in Branson, Missouri a week later.
     a. we met American Idol stars. 

    b. Had frog races.
    c. Watched some comedy shows. :)

    d.  Visited the sister friend, and bummed around Branson Landing. 


    e. Bought some TOMS finally. :)

4. Went to church camp with my spectacular youth group... :) 

5. Taught two kids programs. :) the best. :)
6. Went to see the best friend, Victoria. :) 


:) So there's part of my summer in a synopsis. :)

n. pl. he·roes
A person noted for feats of courage or nobility of purpose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed his or her life

Three people became heroes July 5th.
Three heroes acted that day.
Three heroes cared.
Three heroes acted.
Three heroes saved a life.

A man died that day. he died a hero. 
My sister said, " I guess heaven needed another hero."
Mr Richard was a second father to my two older sisters and I.
His daughter, like a sister. 
His family like my family.
We called him R Diddy. :)
We all had insider jokes.  
We were all tight like that. :)

Mr Richard was a man to be respected.
Small in stature. But a giant in spirit.
He was a spiritual giant. He loved.
He cared.
That day, he took action.
He gave his life.

There's "R Diddy" One of the greatest men I've ever known.

Some of the most beautiful words, to me. 
Why? God keeps pushing me to the limit. 
He keeps showing me, "Hey you, I have a bigger plan for you."
So I'm trying to listen. So I can be bold in what He wants me to say.
So I can have courage to step out on a limb.
So I can have the strength to carry His word.
So I can make the impact in just one person's life.
I'll have to risk all to do all this. 
But if I risk. I'll lose nothing. 
I'll need to give Him everything. 
I know He won't let me fail.

I stole this quote from my sister's blog.

To Risk
To laugh is to risk appearing the fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out is to risk involvement,
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas and
dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss.
To love is to risk not being loved in return,
To live is to risk dying,
To hope is to risk despair,
To try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken because
the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.

The person who risks nothing, does nothing,
has nothing, is nothing.
– William Arthur Ward (1921-1994)
Beautiful. It sure is. I read that and it inspired me incredibly much.
Then I found this verse on a friends facebook the other day. This verse. My oh my, it inspired me even more.
Will YOU be one of "These that have turned the world upside down.."—Acts 17:6?

Will I be one of them?
Will I change the world?
I wanna turn it upside down.
But to do that, I need to risk.
I'll need to give up everything.
Let it all go.
Then God will do His perfect work.

Ohh my, it's summertime already again. :) This excites me.
Summertime means: picnics, swimming, tans, snowcones...yeahh, I love summer. :) 
It's my favorite time ever. 
Plus, country summers are even better.

I bought some new running shoes. :) 
And I love them so much. So much, that I want to go running all the time.
I've already showed them off on facebook. 
I'd like the whole world to be aware of my new shoes. ;)

Ahhh, excuse my ramblings, I'm just out of things to blog these days.
Sooo, guess that means I'm done here for today...
