Heey there!! Is it too late to say happy new year? I guess I’m one of those weird ones 🙂
Happy New Year 2018 anyhu! It’s quarter way into the year so yea greetings! I haven’t written since laaaaaast year,I haven’t taken the usual *breaks* that people take,neither have I been busy,no,I don’t even know why and I won’t bother trying to figure out why 🙂 🙂
I hope y’all have been well in the Lord,(echoing Paul, greetings brethren, grace and peace be multiplied) and I hope all is well
Well,I was asked to write about my walk with Christ,at first I was blaaank like plank(remember Ed Edd and Eddy) but now I’m smiling coz I got content!! Hehe!
I got saved in highschool, form 3.I remember vividly the sermon was about *the pencil parable* a sermon that was so detailed,precise, accurate and timely for me.(I’ll write about it in my next post).But in a nutshell it emphasized how apart from God we can do nothing (John 15:5)
I walked forward, said the prayer and felt a load lifted off of me.The peace that befell me was heavenly, it’s the peace God describes in Philippians 4:7
Before I delve into further details,I think Christianity is so often misunderstood, in this culture and age of emerging trends and religions, more so new age philosophies,it’s sad but that doesn’t discredit the fact that it’s true.7 I personally think the reason it’s so attacked it’s because it’s the Truth,and handling the truth is painful and requires the humility to change and adapt to it’s way.
Anyway,my walk with God since I got saved has been amazing. It has been zigzaggy! Huuuh!Yeees! I repeat, zigzaggy!! It hasn’t been smooth as is presumed. After that day which BTW is January 16th 🙂 I thought that everything would be perfect, but there was still refining to do,a lot of refining! Which can make you give up and just opt to renounce your salvation
The Lord knows how many nights I go to sleep saying *Lord I give up,I can’t do this it’s too hard* but he is faithful .In those moments he strengthens me. I have had ups and downs,but boy oh boy,giving your life to Jesus is the best thing you can ever do!
I bet probably you’re thinking Naah!!,with all these issues and stereotypes I’d rather not,or someone hurt you or someone’s behaviour annoyed you,I’ll say this, we are not followers of people but followers of Christ. Christ is perfect. We on the other hand are being perfected daily. Experience Jesus for yourself, you’re not worth second hand news of someone’s walk, try Him! He loves you! He’s waiting for you to live life with him
I’m not perfect yet(I’m gonna have to wait till that day He comes) and I can’t exhaust the nittygrities of my transformation, but one of my greatest joys is,I have a friend who is constant, and I no longer have to live a lonely life! Jesus is always there in my bad and good days till the end
Lots of love and blessings 🙂
