June 1, 2010 I published the last issue (at least for a while) of Girl Talk my teen girl magazine. Since this blog was originally designed for the purpose of publishing weekly devotions for the magazine and later the magazine itself I decided to create another blog that isn’t connected to Girl Talk.

I’ll probably still publish book reviews or other items here now and again but you’ll more often find me at Trusting Him with Today. I hope you’ll stop by

Why Not Christ?

(for those who haven’t yet made him their choice)

"Why not Christ?" I often wonder when I hear about senseless acts of violence and fights on our school campuses and in society involving young people.

“I wonder if he/she knew Jesus as Lord?” goes through my mind anytime I hear of a young person dying. The reason is because it seems at times to be very difficult to get teenagers to realize their need for a savior.

It all seem so obvious the choice between good and bad, right and wrong, heaven and hell… yet it’s a choice that many people struggle to make. But really what does this world have to offer that stands out more than what our heavenly father offers?

Acts 17:28 states
'For in him we live and move and have our being.'

Outside of Christ we have nothing. He is the reason for our very existence. He is the one behind everything that has gone right in our lives and he’s the one who has held us and helped us to keep it together when things have gone wrong.

God loves you young ladies. He wants you to give your heart to Him. He’s heard the excuses, “I’m too young…” “I want to have a little fun first…” “I don’t want to give up my music…” “My friends will think I’m strange….” But yet his word says

1 As God’s partners, we beg you not to accept this marvelous gift of God’s kindness and then ignore it. 2 For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.” Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation
2 Corinthians 6:1-3 (emphasis mine) (NLT)

Think about it… why not Christ? It’s an obvious choice, one that will change your whole life. Won’t you make it today?

Amen to that, Bernadine. It is so true that we should not put it off until tomorrow, because we don't know what tomorrow brings.

Beautiful devotional thoughts. Thank you for sharing.
