Hello Dear Readers,
Long time no hear? Yup, that’s me. I barely write in but when I do – look out world! ;p Anyhoo, just thought I’d pop in and tell you a bit about my faith life right now. I have gone through a LOT of emotional rollercoasters since last blog post. Found out some truly hurtful things happening, and recognized all the evil that’s been going on on the other side of the mountain so to speak. But God… even through this trial by fire, He never lets me give up. Trust me, I almost did many times. Between people judging me for hanging on to hope, to being thrown to the wolves, to getting stabbed emotionally and painfully more than once, and worry creeping in, it’s been a hectic ride folks. Yet God says, “Keep praying. Don’t give up.” There is hope and His Name is Jesus. He has outlasted the enemy of our souls in the battle to save humanity, and He died for me and my family and friends, neighbours, co-workers, and everyone around the world that we might have eternal life. All it takes is a little faith in Him and the will to keep following Him – taking up our ‘cross’ daily. It takes prayer, sometimes fasting, discipline, fellowship, study, meditation, living in the Spirit not in the flesh, living in the Light & Truth of God’s Word, instead of our emotions, repentance and forgiveness. It also takes much humbleness & thankfulness because if we’re not acting in this way, we’re probably living in pride which is what brought the devil down from Heaven in the first place. He wanted to be God and have His Worship. He thought he was better than God and decided to do things his way, but we all know how that turned out. And ultimately, how it will turn out. One thing I’ve noticed is there is a lot of hurt amongst Christian communities as we all continue to live in sin, without repentance, and continue to live our lives for ourselves – in our selfish nature, unless we have revelation of this, and sadly many don’t, we end up living a life of misery and failure, unfulfilling and sad. God wants us to have His best and in order to do that we need to die to self daily, we need to keep surrendering our lives to Him and praying for discernment and wisdom as the enemy tries to keep us from following Him by whispering in our ears lies and all sorts of deceit to lead us off the narrow and straight path. It sadly is happening amongst those closest to me and it saddens me. I feel burdened to pray for them unceasingly and I am. I believe God has a Plan just as He has promised in His Word and the more I keep holding on to these Words, the more light and hope I see at the end of the tunnel. So no matter what you’re going through, believe that God will make a Way and ask Him what His Will is for your life. He will let you know if you’re listening and seeking Him with your whole heart. He has and continues to do so for me. So believe!
