Aspirations

The world was not worthy of them... Hebrews 11:38

I've heard it said that people who make the biggest difference in our world, are those who think most often about the next...

What would it mean to be someone that the world didn't deserve. That the world was privileged, honored, and even completely unworthy of their existence.

Hebrews 11 lists numerous people that graced this undeserving world.

People who took chances, gave everything, risked their lives, gave their lives...

I believe this scripture displays the ultimate example of being Christ Like. Because the world did not deserve Jesus...

Can you imagine, going down in history, having the privilege of being being placed in such a high place of honor. To be considered too good for this current world.

I once heard a man ask, "If the Bible was written today, would you be in it?"

It makes me question my impact... my commitment... my everything...

Have I given everything? Am I willing to take chances? Am I ready to give my life?

We often think of the people who were martyred... the people who literally give their lives in exchange for whats next... but we rarely think of those who live day in and day out for the kingdom.

"Dying for something is easy because it is associated with glory. Living for something is the hard thing. Living for something extends beyond fashion, glory, or recognition. We live for what we believe."

I honestly don't know that I will ever have to face a martyrs death, but I would like to live a life that makes an impact... that changes the people around me... that changes the world...

Want to know the secret to accomplishing these things? The crux that everything else hinges upon?

Faith.

By faith...

With faith...

The entire chapter of Hebrews 11 centers on faith... and it seems that nothing good or great was accomplished without it.

I want that faith. I want to move mountains...

I want to live what I believe. No questions, no compromise...

I want to be like Christ... 

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see...

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
