"A man by His sin may waste himself, which is to waste that which on earth is most like God. This is man's greatest tragedy and God's heaviest grief." -A.W.Tozer

I truly do see that I'm a vapor in time. And I truly do desire with every ounce of my
being to reflect Jesus in every way possible. You either light up a room because you've just entered, or because you've just left. I want every moment to matter. I want to give and give until there's nothing left to give. And then watch Jesus give me more to give. I know some of my extended family thinks I'm extreme and just sort of weird. But really. When you die, people don't care or talk about what degree you had or the things you accumulated. They try to find something nice about you as a person. About your character. And I for one would rather go through life with some people thinking I'm strange than be normal. I want to show people Jesus. Every day. I want to reak with the scent of healing, hope, redemption, Jesus. I want to just be gushing with Him and truth so much that when people are standing around my memorial service, they're singing and dancing in praise over the beauty of the God they were able to meet. I want them worshipping and laughing in His presence, because they know that's what I love doing and that I'm doing it in Heaven. That's all I want from this life. To have people see and experience being completely in love with and obsessed over Jesus Christ because they saw what He did in me. An incredible work. A legacy of truth and healing. Man, I love Him so!
