God and Candy

My pastor had an interesting illustration in church today. He talked about how eating candy before dinner ruins your appetite by masking your real hunger. It gives you a nice sugar high, which you have to crash from later.

In the same way, I fall for the sugary things in this world that don’t actually satisfy. They only mask my true longing for God. Eventually, though, I realize that those thing won’t satisfy me, so what do I do? Oftentimes, I just try eating more of them to make up for the deficit.

About Me

I'm a high school student, a teen, who seeks to follow God with everything he has. I've got so many questions and so often I feel like I'm hitting a wall in my beliefs, my actions, and my creativity. And that's OK.

Being surrendered is more of a process than a destination. I'm not perfect by any means, and I struggle a lot. But the daily act of "presenting my body as a living sacrifice," fully surrendered to the will of my King, is what will get me through.
