  • I went from three years of ministry school to full time vocational ministry.
    Even before ministry school, I had a craving that constantly bugged me. It said, "You need to do more, you need to be more."

    I always felt God pushing me to tell other people about His love. So as a homeschooled teenager, I started doing it wherever I could. I started small, on chat rooms online, and even in the video games I played. I was intimidated by people, but always felt the urge to keep sharing the gospel. It made me nervous and uncomfortable, but when I did do it, I always felt great.

    I got comfortable with that, and eventually the idea of sharing the gospel on chat rooms seemed like it was not enough. I needed to do more.
    I started going to the mall with friends and began sharing the Gospel with random people. We even started praying for people in public. We say God do amazing things.

    It didn't end there though. I have shared the love of Jesus Christ in Mexico, in college campuses, youth groups, and in malls. This craving to do more, and to share the Gospel with others has never stopped growing. Your cravings may take you to places you never imagined, good or bad.

    Now I work in a recovery center for teens and I tell them about Christ's love every day. I have been here for several months, but am beginning to get that sense again, normal is creeping up, and the cravings are growing.

    The cravings to BE greater, to DO more.

    I believe we all have these cravings, and we all do more with what we have. What do you do with your cravings?
