Normal?

Most would say (and for the most part I agree) I'm just a normal homeschool teen. I am the first born of five, my dad's a pastor, my mom is a stay at home mom. I hate hard things and would rather spend all day surfing the web. I enjoy socializing and shopping and love all kinds of foods. I really wasn't committed to godly things. But that was several weeks ago...
Recently I've read some books, gone to a camp, and went to a weekend conference. In the time since then I've quit playing video games, started waking up at 5:30 in the morning for quiet time (and love every second of it) and evaluating my heart in ways I never have before. Not so normal anymore...
My life is just another life to many, just like yours - right? Wrong, I believe everyone was put on earth for a purpose because God, the maker of the world made even you and that is no small thing. How should we take this? As Christians we should jump on it. We should have a burning desire that not a single day, a single hour, a single minute, or even that a second should be wasted. Just like every one of you, I am not here on this planet at this time for no reason. That's why I am starting this blog. Day by Day, how will you spend it?
