I have always loved treasure hunts, hide-and-seek, and anything like that. Why? Because I like finding things. I like treasures. The feeling one gets when they find what their looking for is amazing. I also love adventure because you never know what's going to happen. It's a mystery, and who doesn't like mysteries? Well you know what else is a mystery? God is. He is mysterious. He makes me keep looking, keep trying, keep trusting in Him, and keep knowing that at the end, there is always a treasure. God himself is the biggest treasure that ever was and ever will be. I have never given up on a treasure hunt because of the treasure part of it. Adventures are awesome. That's all I have to say for now but I'll post soon.

I need to confess something: earlier I was trying to sum up God in a few words, but it took me a LOT more than that to sum Him up. The reason is because God truly is everything. Not the bad stuff, but everything pure, everything holy, everything wonderful, and everything perfect. I can't think of a single word to sum up everything because there is just so much. I have never been left speechless before now, before thinking of one word to sum up God. The word God in itself doesn't sum him up. Nothing can because He almost like a riddle. He has no beginning and no end, He is fully man and fully God, He's love is unending and pure, He loves all, He created all, and He will destroy all. What is He? He is God. I know that isn't saying much, but I truly fall speechless trying to sum Him up.

I was thinking the other day how lucky I am. I have a wonderful family, a wonderful home, our family can afford to put groceries on the table every day, we can afford a car. But then another idea popped into my head: Why was I, out of billions and billions of people, chosen to be in God's kingdom? He could have gotten somebody smarter, somebody prettier, somebody more talented, somebody famous, or somebody more important than me. But no, He choose me. It is impossible to answer somebody if they ask why. Because I don't know. It is easier to see now just how lucky I am. God truly does care for all of us. And then I realized that He didn't just chose me out of billions of people, He chose me out of billions of people because He loves me and wants me to spend eternity with Him. And it is just so hard to comprehend how much He loves me and everyone else that He has called. So if you ever feel like nobody cares about you, just think how much God does. How He called you instead of somebody more _ than you are. How He chose you and how He loves you and how He has a special plan for you.
