This time of year makes me reflect on life. It's because of all the graduates that are beginning a new journey in life. I won't meet half of you, okay... probably really only 10% of you, but I must share a most important message. Why is it so important? It's a message that was never communicated to me. I didn't realize this until later in life, so I wanted to do my part passing the message on.
Know this....if you forget every math equation, grammar rule, or chemistry formula, know this...God.Loves.You.
As you set out in your new journey, the phase of your life that can shape who you are as an adult, then know that whatever you do, no matter how many times you fail, when you are looking for love in all the wrong places, know that God.Loves.You!
You can't change that about God. That is his character. He will be there when you have to stay up all night to get that 50-page project completed, when you are late for your 10th time for the 7:30 a.m. Biology class, when you are alone and no one understands what you are going through, when you take a stand for your faith and do the right thing and all your friends are doing the wrong thing. Remember God.Loves.You.
God will be there when satan throws his best at you. The temptations will come... count on it. Know what you believe, prepare ahead for the road blocks that are out there, because there are too many to count. Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy you. Remember God.Loves.You!
Your professors are NOT going to tell you that, your friends, nor those annoying Facebook games like Farm-ville or Mafia Wars! God cares about you so much that He sent His Son, Jesus, to die for YOU on the cross. All religion paths don't lead you to Jesus. There is only one way, Jesus. Remember God.Loves.You.
Remember God.Loves.You. Always remember.
