Revived

Hi! For the past 3 days, I’ve gone to a youth conference in Rochester, NY called Youth Ablaze. It was so encouraging! The preaching was… phenomenal. There was singing like nobody’s business too. The main thing that I remember from this event was this:

 God uses ordinary people to do His extraordinary work; David, Moses, Gideon, John, Paul, the little boy who gave up his lunch to help feed 5000 people… and so on! The list is long. If God could use those people hundreds of years ago, what makes you think that He can’t use you? “I’m just a high school student”, you say, “I’m just a housewife”, “I’m just a waiter.” Well, God loves you the same as He does a trillionaire and a felon; God is not a respecter of persons. God uses my father, a pastor, in magnificent ways. My dad would agree that he’s nothing special, he’s just a man who loves his family and likes fishing, but he allowed God to use him wherever he was needed. God moved our family to where we needed to be because we chose to devote our lives to serving God. That’s the key thing. If you want to serve and obey God, but you’re unwilling to change… stop. Just surrender your life to Jesus, even if you’ve already accepted His gift of salvation, and wholeheartedly live for Him. Follow His commandments. Like John 14:15 says, If ye love me, keep my commandments

God can use you where you are… but if you’re not where you’re supposed to be, let Him move you to where you need to be.

It’s that simple. Live for Him.

I AM RESOLVED

Palmer Hartsough

I am resolved no longer to linger, Charmed by the world’s delight; Things that are higher, things that are nobler, These have allured my sight.

I will hasten to Him, Hasten so glad and free; Jesus, Greatest, Highest, I will come to Thee.

I am resolved to go to the Saviour, Leaving my sin and strife; He is the true One, He is the just One, He hath the words of life.

I will hasten to Him, Hasten so glad and free; Jesus, Greatest, Highest, I will come to Thee.

I am resolved to follow the Saviour, Faithful and true each day; Heed what He sayeth, do what He willeth, He is the living way.

I will hasten to Him, Hasten so glad and free; Jesus, Greatest, Highest, I will come to Thee.

I am resolved to enter the Kingdom, Leaving the paths of sin; Friends may oppose me, foes may beset me, Still will I enter in.

I will hasten to Him, Hasten so glad and free; Jesus, Greatest, Highest, I will come to Thee.

About cassidyrizzo

First and above all else, I am a firm believer in Jesus Christ. He is my Rock and my Salvation. He is the reason that I am the person I am today. All glory and honor and praise goes to Him, my Savior. Second, I am a writer. Most of my work is fiction. My stories revolve around overcoming hardships. Generally, I write for teens and young adults. Everything is child friendly, but it's not usually on a simple enough reading level for, say, a 9 year old. And, I am in love with all things musical. I don't play any instruments. I do play the radio and my CD's. I love me some Pandora. It's a beautiful technological masterpiece. Music is what is constantly going on in my life. Love music
