The first blog I wrote is titled Crossroads.
I wrote it 7 years ago.
That was when I was deciding if I should go to graduate school or return to China for a second time.
I remember being in the backyard of our college house and looking up into the starry sky.
I had a feeling come over me that something big was about to happen.
Faith that everything could change in an instant and my destiny would be discovered.
I enjoyed that time, living in community with other guys and trying to follow Jesus.
Sometimes we come to that fork in the road where you have to make a decision to turn left or turn right.
Ultimately, I flipped a coin (asking God to speak through the coin) and literally made my decision like that.
7 years later, I am at another crossroads, but in more ways than one.
Every moment of every day is a crossroads for all of us.
We must deliberately choose to follow our own selfish desires or to follow the Kingdom of light in both our thoughts and actions.
I have not considered flipping a coin to make this decision.
I can say I have grown a lot since that time.
I have faith that I can hear God's voice in this area as I wait for confirmations.
And perhaps most of all, I have learned to share who I really am.
It is a dark image without the blood of Jesus, but thanks be to God who applies the sacrificial anointed blood of Christ to us through faith.
I was broken, but now I'm free.
And you can look all you want at my life for I will still declare the truth.
I am a new creation in Christ and all things have become new!
Bless God forever!
