DESPERATE for God

Cassidy, is a precious 14-year old girl that loves Jesus. You know she is filled with the power and love of God after you are with her for only a few minutes. Wisdom just leaks out of her. I do not look down on her because of her age, therefore, I actually learn from her when she speaks. God uses her in my life. Although she lacks life experiences, she doesn’t lack an all-power, consuming, wisdom giving God. 

I asked her to guest blog for me so you could have a peek into the heart of a child is recklessly abandoned to God. All of our children can have this too. We should aspire to lead their hearts to KNOW God rather than just perform for God. 

Let’s hear from Cassidy ~

There was a time in my life when I lived in passive Christianity. A time when I cared deeply about what others thought about me, and it crippled me. 



Then the Holy Spirit came and I was set free. I was changed. The filling of the Holy Spirit awakened my soul. It gave me a new desire to worship. A DESPERATE hunger for the presence of God.

The truth set me on fire. 

I still, to this day, walk in this freedom and will continue to walk in it the rest of my life. I am not going back. I do not want to go back. I do not want to go back to a life of self-consciousness and timidity. 

How silly popularity seems now that I see clearly what a prize I am in the eyes of the Lord. What’s the point of status when the blood of Jesus is our true security? 

People tell me that I’m different. That they’re not sure what it is about me but I’m just different. 

I can tell you what it is. It’s freedom, and it’s not me. It’s the Holy Spirit and it is completely accessible to all believers. 

I could say so much about this but honestly can sum it down into this: the Holy Spirit is a free gift from God generously available through the death and resurrection of Christ to all who believe. 

It is one of Gods special gifts to us because He loves us and it is truly an amazing and wonderful thing.

  1. You said “There was a time in my life when I lived in passive Christianity. A time when I cared deeply about what others thought about me, and it crippled me.

    How did this happen, I too care too much what people think of me and I want to be set free and changed. I want to want a desperate hunger for the Lord.

  2. Ah. God loves you so much. I can't even explain it to you. In 2010 I had an encounter with the Lord that opened my eyes to the Truth. I got a glimpse into the depth of His affection, the genuine richness of His love, and I seriously can't be the same. Over time the Lord has been removing the blinders from my eyes and I have seen that all the people I once tried to please really aren't as significant as I thought. Human acceptance is such a mirage. Gods acceptance is REAL.The God of the universe is pleased with me! He's pleased with YOU! Not because of anything we've earned but because of Jesus. All because of Jesus. It seems to good to be true. The fact that I get to live victoriously on earth and eternally in heaven all because of one mans selfless sacrifice for the sin of the world? But that's the best part! It is true! JESUS IS HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE WITH YOU! He's not disappointed in you, discouraged, or even a little upset. He loves you so so so much. It was love that set me free. You say you want a desperate hunger for the Lord. Hallelujah. You will not be disappointed. Pursue Him like He's pursuing you. Prioritize His presence. Dive into His love. It's all explained in His Word. Dig into the Bible (Romans 8 is a great place to start). And I promise you, He will blow you away. I am praying for you, anonymous reader. God loves you so much. I know it.
