Is anyone looking for someone who loves you and will never diss you no matter how much you act a fool, mess up, ignore them or want to simply give up? Then God is the answer. I always claimed to have a relationship with God but looking back, it was more vocal than in actual practice. Until some time last year. Then I found the Lord when I was down and under and things looked so gloomy. I called and he answered. When the Lord answers, you will know. There is this awesome, supernatural sense of peace and joy that you feel. Your world could be falling apart, but you are so calm, happy and hopeful, it is almost infectious.
Back then I would always switch off when my "saved" friends would start going on and on about how amazing God is. But its coz I didnt know Him and thats why I was so non chalant about the whole topic. Like if I had never drank say... Sierra Mist... and there is a bunch of people going on about how good it is but in my mind I'm like "its probably played out, overrated and just like any other soda out there". Then one day I am really thirsty and almost passing out, then I kunywa a Sierra Mist and its so refreshing, I dont understand why one, I never tried it before and two why the rest of the world is not drinking it.
So I stand up and say that I experienced the most amazing feeling when I let God in my life. It was as simple as asking him to come into my heart. I was in tears. And since then, life for me is like day and night. I don't know how I was getting through life without him. He is my purpose, my begininng and end. I know life will let me down, there will be heartbreaks, disappointments, losses and deaths. But there is one thing that will always be constant. His love for me, and undying promise to be there till the end.
I never want to sound preachy, but it would be wrong of me not to share this with people. He has made such a better person. I am way kinder for one and just more pleasant and positive. And as a result, doors in my life are opening and I am realizing there is no limit to the things I will do and experience. All I have to do is ask him.
But walking the Christian walk is not easy. A lot of my friends always accuse me of becoming a goody too shoes and cant understand why I don't "hang like I used to". They are still my dearest of friends but sometimes, they fail to understand that we dont have to get down and dirrrrty to have a good time. We can hang, but we dont have to drink the whole bar (ehhm, not that we used to...) But its sometimes hard to stay on the path of righteousness especially as a young person. I don't want to loose all my old friends but there are some things we are not agreeing on. Our generation does so many things that the Bible preaches against and it has reached a point where the wrong things start looking right. Like saying its ok to drink and get drunk as long as you are not blacking out. And you are not doing it every day. There is nothing wrong with drinking, but drunkedness is a sin. Another thing is sexual immorality. Our generation has made pre marital sex okay as long as you are being safe and are in a monogomous relationship. Well, sex before marriage is wrong, plain and simple. Thinking its okay to lie as long as no one finds out. Believing that there is nothing wrong with gossip as long as the info doesn't get outside the "circle". I could go on and on but my point is we need to realize many things that look okay are actually wrong. I still struggle with many things and wanting to do what is right. Its practically impossible to meet a guy who doesn't want to have premarital sex. What is a girl to do..... I digress.
But the answer is in HIM. Do right and he will bless you abundantly. Trust him and when you pray, BELIEVE that he will answer your prayers. When you pray, don't limit God. The sky really is the limit. He will take you places and open doors that you never even imagined you could get through. Give unto others, and you will recieve more than you ever imagined.
