Have you ever thought that you knew all there was to know about life? Or you felt like there was no advice in the world anyone could ever give you that you hadn’t already heard before?
I can easily answer yes to both of those questions…which is why I am sitting here feverishly typing away to tell you one small thing. YOU’RE WRONG. Now, before you try to rush and exit off of this blog page because I just killed your ego, I need you to know why you’re wrong.
First things first, let me tell you a little about me. My name is Kat, and I thought I had everything figured out and knew all there was to know about life. My friends, unbeknownst to them, have consistently stroked my ego over the years because they all came to me for advice whenever situations came up in their lives. Not to mention, I am a Psychology major so this made me feel even better about myself. There was nothing you could tell me that would make me think otherwise.
Well that was until I met my boyfriend. He gave me the same realization that I just gave you. I was wrong. I had gone completely left and was on the fast track to nowhere. He told me, in the most loving way possible, that there comes a time in life when you have to stop being so consumed with yourself and realize that you are not the end all be all, nor do you know it all. As you could have guessed, this did not go over well…AT ALL. You see, there was one GLARING difference between my boyfriend and I at this time: having a relationship with Jesus Christ.
I considered myself a Christian, but I was one notch above your average holiday church goers. I went to church occasionally, and I prayed….but it was usually in a plea to make my groceries last for a few more days until my next paycheck. When I met my boyfriend, my life changed in more ways than one. I began going to church with him and his family, I started to realize that I am not everything and a bag of chips, and I really focused on growing a relationship with God. This is when I finally understood that the only thing I know, is that I know nothing and the only way I would truly begin to grow as a person was if I had GOD.
So long story short, I am here to tell you that you are wrong…but this can change. While we will never come to know everything there ever is to know, we can discover so much more than we *think* we have when we have a relationship with God. By whole heartedly praying and reading His Word, our eyes can be opened to the truth. I have felt a burning desire to start a blog for sometime now, as a way to connect with believers and non-believers to share some of the things I am learning along my journey with God and to, hopefully, strengthen your faith, or help you to find it.
I am so incredibly excited for this new adventure and I hope that you will join me for the ride so that we may all be the light.
