Post #11

I have many passions and dreams in my life.  I love writing (and blogging) and hope to be a published author some day.  I love reading and hope to be an excellent reviewer of books.  I love music and want to create songs that reflect who I am and why I am that way or what I’m going through.  I love teaching and hope to touch many, many lives and encourage my students to dream big and achieve their goals.  But when I die, I don’t want to be remembered for any of these things.  That is, unless they bring glory to God.

When I die, I want to be remembered for following God with my entire life.  I want to seek Him with all of my life and sacrifice myself and my desires for His glory.  I want to proclaim His glory and His saving grace!  That is what I want to be remembered for!  God is so powerful!  He created everything.  He sustains everything! Only He can save us from our sin.  We are depraved, sinful, selfish people.  We need God.  In his infinite love and grace, He can choose to save us.  God is so awesome!  If I am remembered at all, I want to be remembered for Him!

Today I will discuss Daily Post’s topic of the day – what’s the single most important thing you accomplished in 2010?

I really don’t know what the single most important thing I accomplished in  2010 is.  I suppose that depends on how important is defined.  I did a lot of things in 2010.  I graduated with a B.A. in English from Bowling Green State University with three job offers.  I planned a wedding in 87 days and married an incredible man.  Then I got another job in China and moved overseas within five days of obtaining my visa.  It has been a crazy, ridiculous year; I have been quite busy.

Honestly though, all of these things are just things.  The biggest accomplishment, if I can even call it that, is the growth of my faith in God.  This growth isn’t even something I can claim to own.  God is at work in my life, as Philippians 2:12-13 says.  It is all for His glory, and only by His grace that I have made it through all the trials, along with all the joys, that this year has brought.

Today’s post topic at The Daily Post is to name someone who deserves more credit than they get.

Hmmmm… there are quite a few people who deserve more credit than they get.  However, as cliche as it is, I’m going to have to say that Jesus Christ deserves way more credit than he gets.  I mean, he is God, who created the entire universe.  He also became human, came to earth, and died to redeem humanity from its depravity.  Then he ascended to heaven.  Seriously incredible.  He also gives us the freedom to make choices, but promises to take care of us and provide for all of our needs if we ask him.  He is so good, faithful, and loving.

I would love to hear what you think about religion, spirituality, and faith.  Please leave a comment or e-mail me at rachelblesch@gmail.com.
