where do I draw the line??

I am a lil bit stuck right now. I am almost 20 years old and I realized that my life is the way it is because I dont know where to draw the line. There is still so much in life that I want to do. I still want to go out and have fun and enjoy myself but there is a very thin line that can easily be crossed. How do I go out and have fun without throwing a hex in my growing relationship with God. Like, next weekend is my sisters 21st birthday party and she really wants me to go. I really want to go. I want to go have fun, dance the night away, chill with some friends and just enjoy myself but does that make me a hypocrite? If I sit in a club half the night and then get up to go to worship service the next morning should I feel bad about it. My problem is, I dont know where the line is drawn. These days I dont even know if there is a line but I dont want to be considered someone who lives two seperate lives. I just want to have fun and I am terrified that I’ll find myself in either of the two extremes. Either I’ll live for Christ and will not have fun at all point, blank, period. Or I’ll have fun and go too far. I dont want neither of those things to happen. I think I deserve to go out and have fun with my friends. I think I deserve to just enjoy myself every once in a while without feeling guilty about. So where do I draw the line??

    IMHO, dancing and having fun will not be a sin…. but what you could do is ask God to impress on your heart if something that is going on will not be pleasing to him. DON”T do anything because others are watching – you will try to please them and not end up pleasing God…. Ask Him to guide your steps, and go out and have fun!

    Jesus mixed with ‘sinners’ and gave them more wine at Cana (when everyone else was probably already pissed from having too much!) True, there is a spiritual reason for that miracle, but I’m sure if he did it JUST to prove a point he could have used a less controversial method, right? Let God be your judge.

    I pray for you that God will increase his presence on your life and lead you along the path of righteousness… The line is drawn, not by man, but by God in His Word. Ask Him what He wants you to do, and then just follow his direction.
