All You Have to Do is Ask

Today I read the prayer of jabez. For those of you who don't know what that is, its a highly written about prayer that is randomly thrown into the middle of a very long genealogy story. And it is only one sentence long but it is so important and so influential. Today I also hung out with some friends but as soon as alcohol was introduced I decided it was time for me to make my leave, because a true Christian doesn't want to be around that, plus it looks kind of off. So instead of partying I said my goodnight and went home to finish reading and to talk to my roommate for a while. Now I'm sitting down to write this blog and I'm wondering what to write as a poem tonight. I want to be impressionable about who I am in Christ, and I want people to see me and really see how God is working in me, but thats something that is a day by day thing.

Don't be afraid child
I am with you
Your path I have chosen
I knew you before you were in the womb
I loved you before the Earth
I want to bless you
I want you to know me
I am God your father
I have prepared a place in heaven
For you to be
When I call you home
All I ask
Is that you put your faith in me
Trust me with your life
I will keep your path straight
All you have to do is ask
I will bless you abundantly
All you have to do is ask
I will make you a fisher of men
Just follow my son
Obey my commands
Love everyone
I will be with you
Trust in me
And your life will be blessed

Another Year at School

So another year at CalU is about to start. Our motto CALU4LIFE!!!! Because you legitimately never leave Cal, they find ways to keep you there four semester after you were supposed to graduate!!! Anyway that's not what I was going to write about. I talked to my girlfriend today for the first time in what seems like ages. I miss her very much and I hope to see her soon. But talking to her has made me see how exciting college can be. She's going to be a freshman this year at UPJ and it makes me think back to my freshman year. All the memories I had planned to keep. Now I look back at my freshman year and wish I had made more memories than, but its not to late, I've got two more years and I'm gonna make the most of it while I still have the time.

I'm staring at my life
Wondering where
All the years have gone
College is almost over
Two more years
That's all I have left
Then its hello world
Are you ready for me
Cus honestly I'm not ready for you
Life is a rushing wind
Gone before you know
Make what you can of it
You only get one
College is supposed to be
The best years of your life
So make the best of it
Don't let it pass you by
Too many opportunities will arise
That will never come again
So make the best of your time
Live a little
Have some freedom
But know the limits
Don't get out of hand
But don't be afraid
To take a few chance
College will go quickly
Don't let it slip away
