It’s OK To Be Me – I’m Not That Girl Anymore!
I’m sitting here at the computer, typing this post – and that’s ok.
A few years ago, I would NOT have even been home on a Saturday night. I would have been out in Long Island or ‘Jersey or other crazy place, risking my life to see an oldies show!
Yup – I would say that from about 1984 til 2000, I would spend most Saturday nights at an oldies show. And I have to say that on some of those occasions, I was risking my life just traveling to these events.
But that was the girl that I was all those years ago. I was a rock-and-roller. I knew more about who was performing where than about the Who that created my life! That part was NOT okay!
Between you, me, and the lamppost, God had His hand on me even back then. I know that He was protecting me from REALLY bad things happening.
In those days, there were NOT a lot of Christians performing at these shows. I probably wouldn’t have known what a Christian was even if he came up to me!
Thank God there were one or two who were praying me into the Kingdom, even though they didn’t know it at the time. Both of them rejoiced when I told them afterwards that I had accepted Christ.
Even after being saved, I was still going to rock and roll concerts on Saturday nights. And the next day? I would walk into church half-zonked out of my head. FINALLY in about 2000 or so, God got a hold of me in this area.
So what do I do now on Saturday nights? Check out this post to get your answer!
These days, I would not even think about going to a rock and roll concert! Besides which, the Bible tells us not to put ANYTHING above God! And God is NOT finished growing me in this area either, so stay tuned!
I’m not that girl I used to be – and that’s ok.
