Student of Life. Advocate for Serious Joy in Christ

The tagline says it all.

In many ways I am a student of life. First of all, I have literally been a student my whole life. At completion of Year 12 I jumped ship to university, where I currently study. But when I move into a full time job, I doubt my tagline will lose relevance. I will forever be learning in this life. I don’t boast a ton of knowledge about most things.

Yet despite this, there is something I can strongly advocate.

There’s a lot of things I find joy in doing. Cycling and running are up there. I live pretty close to the beach and love it. Hanging out with mates over rocket league, coffee, sport. As much as I like these activities, they are but temporary joys. As much as I love to do these things, they don’t produce serious and lasting joy.

Cut to the chase – there’s nothing temporary about God.

Nothing beats a relationship with the God of the universe. Nothing beats a life of real purpose beyond the grave. Nothing produces true, lasting joy like having this secure hope (Hebrews 6:19). A glory in store, a destiny prepared, an inheritance reserved.

Now that’s something I can hang my hat on.

    Twice today my heart has been blessed by the testimony of young adults sold out in the love of Christ. God bless you on your journey.

      I’m sure hoping and praying that what you’ve said becomes true of me! No better place to be than sold out in the love of Christ!

    I liked your story about the Christian cyclist. Your honesty of dealing with social situations similar to that one is all too familiar.

    It’s funny — was able to experience Le Tour de France about 13 years ago with my family when I was 12. Loved it. Even speak some French, myself! It’s a beautiful language. Anyway, thanks for reaching out and liking my “Religion is a Dead End” post. Keep writing and sharing God! He’s given you an awesome writing gift!

    He’s the best thing we have to share, after all.

      Glad to hear! Yeah spot on – often I struggle in those sort of social situations. Glad there a people like that Christian cyclist who are willing to stand up and be counted – even if there are repercussions.

      Awesome!! Must have been a crazy atmosphere at the Tour De France. Growing up a kid in Australia, I would often have late nights/early mornings on the couch in front of the TV – watching and marvelling as the event of the Tour De France played out. Some good memories.

      No problems Manda! Thanks for dropping by here too. God is good 🙂
