There's a song by Switchfoot called "This Is Your Life." The lyrics are, in part, "This is your life, are you who you wanna be?" The song got me thinking. Am I who I want to be? Who am I, for that matter? I guess I'm a lot of things. I had to make a list.
A follower of the Lord Jesus Christ
A student of those who have something to teach me
A teacher to those who have something to learn from me
In short, I am what the Lord, in His grace, has made me. What more could I hope to be? As I've no doubt mentioned, it is my prayer that He will one day make me a husband and a father, but if He doesn't, I'm OK with that. As long as I am who He wants me to be, then I am who I want to be.
I'm a 33 year old pastor-in-training, and I'm married to the woman of my dreams. I love the Lord with every fiber of my being, and though sometimes the way is hard, I will walk with Him always. Aside from my wife, my best friends are my three dogs, Galen, Bianca, and Zeke. I am happiest when I have a bass in my hands and a song in my heart. That's about it.
