Sometimes I wonder where I would be at if I had never given God a chance. I am completely and utterly in awe of where He has taken me in all the years since I gave my life to Him. Don’t get me wrong, it has not been easy and I screw up things more than I get them right. Many days I want to just pull the car over at yell at Him because He has been so good to me when more often than not I don’t give him the time of day.
I think of Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite, and when he says, “Vote for me and I will make your wildest dreams come true.” I then think about God . . . he is not Pedro, but, He really has made so many of my hopes and desires come true. There are a few I am will waiting on him to come through on though (wink, wink).
My hope for you is that you will give God the time of day. I don’t know your situation and maybe he hasn’t come through for you when you have really needed him the most. I cannot give you scientific proof that He exists, I can only tell you that having faith has made life more full of wonder, passion, and adventure. As I have trusted him he has revealed more and more of himself when I have least expected it. The things that happen and the good that occurs makes it impossible to not accept His grace. Don’t let religion ruin it for you, leave all the laws and stipulations to the pharisees.
Give it up.
Lay your life down.
Fight against your self.
Be a sacrifice for the cause.
Chances are . . . “He will make your wildest dreams come true.”
