Early this morning I was organizing some books that I have written in, in the past. It was very interesting to see how much in my journals I talk about my appreciation for what God has done in my life. It helped me realize that I have always had a sincere connection with God. There have been times in my life when I have doubted my spiritual connection. Well I now know that God truly is at the center of my life. Growing up in the church, my mom always had me at Sunday School, serving with Acolytes, Jr. Ushers and much more. Being involved in all these activities had me grow to understand that I had to be of service in all that I do. That is similar to how Christ lived his life. He was of service to sinners, showing them God’s light and love. Even now I serve in my church, when it is feasible. What I am working to move toward doing to serve God more now is to work to evangelize to people who may not know about his love.
The last time I went to #HashtagLunchbag, the organizer and my friend KJ, gave me some extra hand warmers to give toe the people across the street who may be facing hard times. I recruited some Youth and Young Adults to join me. We went after Youth and Young Adult Sunday service and had a good time with the people. It wasn’t just us giving out something to people for the sake of giving stuff away, but to begin a relationship. I recommended that we go back on this coming Sunday to pray with the people. This is just an idea that popped in my head on Sunday evening. It just feels like the right thing to do. I’ve been waiting for the longest to want to do something like this and now in the year I am going to be turning 30, I am doing it.
Something about turning 30, has truly given me a new type of confidence. I am growing to accept things differently in life. This turning 30 has been something that I have been looking forward to for several years. I’ve been looking forward to it because I have felt stuck in a rut in my late 20s. Not anymore! This year I am only worried about focusing on my acting dreams. Everything else takes a backseat, minus God and family.
