These past few days I was at Sonshine, a Christian music festival. I was there with 18,000 other people and 120+ bands. This was my 3rd year going. Nothing spectacular happened to me, and I was not moved greatly. But it was an amazing trip. This trip was the first year I lifted my hands to praise Jesus completely of my own will. This year I saw a good friend realize that there is so much more to being a Christian. And this year I saw God’s power work in mighty ways.
Now this music festival is one of the greatest weekends of my year, and the one I plan months, even a year ahead. Actually, I plan on going to Sonshine every year for the rest of my life. I love the people, the company, the music, and the worship.
In August there are a couple of things that I am looking forward to. August 7-8 is the Luis Palau Festival. This will be a huge Christian festival on the steps of the Capitol. There will be awesome bands including Third Day, Casting Crowns, and TobyMac. This is a free event where you can gather with Christians who are close to God and those who are still searching, and listen to a wonderful speaker.
Also in August I am attending TEC. This is Teens Encounter Christ. It is kind of like the adult cursillo, which may mean nothing to you. But it will be wonderful for me. In my faithwalk, I tend to stray a lot. I find it hard to stay close to God and keep a close relationship with Him. So I am really hoping that this will be good for me. Prayers help.
You know, I am not quite sure what I want to do with the rest of my life. But one thing I do know is that I want to serve Jesus with my life. And with Him, I know I can do that. It will take lots of time, faith, and love. It is possible.
I am going to eat my pizza now. Remember, you are all in my prayers. I love ya.
