Today was a day of focus and reflection. I focused on my work and have been reflecting on the last 15 months. It has been an incredible journey for me. I have come from a place of darkness to a place of light. Even in my difficult moments I can still see the light in my life. It is amazing how God can transform you when you are willing to surrender.
Since I repented for being angry with God last June, I started on this path of surrender to God. It has not always been easy. In fact there have been times when I wanted to give up. It was at these moments that I was so thankful to have my best friend to lean on. She not only prayed with me through these times, she also confronted me, and supported me. She gave me Scripture to read and she gave me wise advise. She has been the best friend I could have ever asked for. I was very sad to leave her when I moved to Kelowna. Since I have moved she has still been there for me when I have needed her as much as she can be. I just hope that I can be the same kind of friend for her.
Reflecting on how far I have come I have realized just how much I have changed in the last year, and I realize how much farther there is to go. There will always be ways to grow and change and become even more Christ-like. This is why our walk with Christ is a journey. Every step has a purpose. Even the times we have wandered off the path had a purpose. Do not get discouraged when your walk gets difficult. Find a Christian you can trust to walk with you on this road and help each other, just like my best friend and myself have for each other. God did not intend for us to do this on our own.
Proverbs 8:35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord. This is so true! The journey over the past 15 months have been a journey of restoring life to me. Have you ever met someone that just seemed to have no life in them, these people are probably either walking away from God, or have never come to God in the first place. God has called us to restore these people to life!
Join me on my journey through life's joys and difficulties.
