Today is truly a great day to be alive. When I look back over my life and I think things over, my heart melts. I am so grateful to God for keeping me in the midst of it all! I can’t testify for you and you can’t testify for me, but I can say that I am a long way from where I come from. There have been times when I was drowning and needed a lifeline and I didn’t have anyone I could turn to for support. I didn’t have anyone I felt that I could trust with “MY” truth. I didn’t want people to judge me. I thought I was the only one in the situations I often found myself in. I had all kinds of crazy thoughts about my life. I thought this was the hand I was dealt, so I just had to live with it, therefore, I was trying to figure it out.
I was one of those people who had heard of God. I started going to church in my mid 20s. At the time, I really didn’t know what it all meant. I knew it was something that people did, mostly on Sunday’s, so that’s what I started doing. I learned how to recite Scriptures; I knew the songs; I knew what I was supposed to do and not do in church or around certain church people, etc.
Although years later when I met God, i.e. I sensed His presence for the first time, on a Wednesday night at Bible study, and my heart said, “this is home”, I still knew there was something different about me. I still didn’t feel FREE. I remember thinking that there is no way God could love me knowing all the wrong I had done. I kept trying to do everything right; the more I tried the more I failed.
Thank God the story doesn’t end there. I am grateful to have this opportunity to share my experiences with others to create a simple path to victory. Take a journey with me as I share how my life has changed for the better by adopting and applying a few simple principles which I used in my faith and deliverance process. There is nothing deep or spooky about it. Our answers are often hidden in plain sight.
There are so many things that I would do all over again if I had the opportunity, but I don’t. All I have is NOW and I plan to take advantage of every opportunity I have to live my best life NOW! I am on a mission to fulfill the plan and purpose God has for my life, which is to help others realize that God has a plan for our lives, regardless of the circumstances we find ourselves in. God will never give up on us; somebody needs to hear that! It doesn’t matter what you have done or how bad you think you have messed up, God is still so in love with all of us! He is no respecter of persons. All we have to do is turn to Him and He will turn to us. God is everything we need and so much more than we would ever expect.
Stay tuned for my weekly blogs where I look forward to continuing this discussion. I am so glad God didn’t give up on me even when I gave up on Him! God is faithful even when we’re not.
