wow. It's been three months! Thank you all for being so patient with me!! ;) In these past few months, God has been teaching me SO much!! The top three things, I would say, are:
1. Keep on trusting Him, even in the unknown.
2. Guys won't ever complete me - nothing and no one can but the Lord. No matter who likes me, or who doesn't, I already have EVERYTHING I need in Jesus Christ! My worth is not dependent on guys or what others say!
3. I DON'T have it all together. I'm not perfect, and I have so much to learn!
Over the next few weeks, I'm hoping to go over each one of those more in depth. But today, Iet me just brag a lil bit about how GOOD and FAITHFUL God has been!! (also sorry in advance for the long post...trying to catch y'all up on what God has been doing so I can keep moving forward in future posts!)
Okay. Guys, wow. God has been so good this year!! ;)
Oki, but if I'm honest, life has been tough and wayyy unpredictable this year. My best friend moved away at the end of last year, and it's been tough without her, tough communicating, tough staying positive and hopeful sometimes.
My GOD is AMAZING. My GOD is POWERFUL. BEAUTIFUL. MAGNIFICENT. AWE-SOME. He is full of LOVE. MERCY. FORGIVENESS. He is LIGHT to my darkness. He is HOPE to my hopelessness, my despair. He has opened my eyes and shown me things I'd never dreamed of seeing and understanding! He has brought me out of the pit I dug for myself and set me on solid ground. He has FREED me. He has broken my chains. I am NO LONGER A SLAVE!!
Hi everyone :) I am really, really sorry I have not been able to post the last couple days like I promised! I had plans of posting every single day, but turns out God said differently! I will try to do another guest post week for you sometime in October to make up for it, God willing. Since I ran out of guest posts as of right now, I decided I'd share with you all my own testimony. Now, last year, I thought my testimony was weak, and useless. I thought that, because I didn't go through like deep depression or drugs or anything beforehand, no one would think it a drastic change or anything, and it would not be as important as someone else who fought suicide or something. I'm learning now that everyone's story is significant in its own way! If you think your testimony will never make a difference to anyone, you are WRONG! Excuse my bluntness, but seriously, your story matters!! God has brought you through a beautiful journey that is completely unique, and I promise you that someone will be able to relate to parts of your story! Don't be afraid to share. I hope He speaks to you through this. Love you all!
Like maybe some of you, I grew up in a Christian home (and am growing up in a Christian home still). When I was four, my mom took me aside and explained the gospel to me. She then asked if I believed it, and I said yes. That day, I became a Christian, and that is actually my earliest memory, which is pretty cool!
Well, I grew up just like any other kid, pretty much. I knew I was a Christian, and I tried to do what my parents told me do and tried to not do what they told me not to do, but this faith was not really my own.
Hello, family! Today we have a really powerful testimony from my amazing, loving small group leader, Sindi. Some of you out there may be struggling with something similar to what she went through, and just remember that you are not alone. There are other people who have gone through what you are going through, and there is a way out: through Jesus. Not through death- remember, after death comes judgement. But through Jesus there is life- eternal life, and life to the fullest! I pray He would speak to you through this, and I'm praying for you!
Before I begin, I want everyone to know that I have never shared my whole testimony, but God's plan is better than mine, so I will just be obedient.
To understand how I got to this very moment, I think it is important to explore my childhood. I was very fortunate to have grown up with five sisters and our mother. YES!!!! Six girls … I know poor DAD, but don’t feel too bad. My father walked out on us countless times until my mother had enough and asked him not to come around. This was the best decision my mother could have made because my father was an alcoholic. Not having a male figure in my life was difficult and shaped me into the person I am today.
Today we have another testimony of God's love and how He brought someone out of a hard time in life. Family, remember- God's love is reckless (in that He doesn't think about the consequences or the sacrifices that comes but simply acts) for you and there is no shadow He won't light up, no mountain He won't climb up, no lie He won't tear down, no wall He won't break down - coming after you, brother, sister. That's the lyrics from Reckless Love, a favorite song of mine :) May you shine wherever you are, and I pray that this speaks to you. You are not alone, and this doesn't have to be the end.
Hey Guys I’m Josiah and I’m here to share my testimony to you guys.
Good morning lovelies! We have a post from a friend of mine who constantly inspired me with her positiveness and love for Jesus, and today she's here to share her story of how she became a Christian and some hard things she's been through. For those of you out there who have been through things like this courageous woman, I want you to know that you are not alone. There are other people who have experienced what you have gone through, and this is not the end. I pray that you will open your heart to Jesus and let Him heal you.
I've had a pretty wild life so far, and my testimony is extraordinary...well at least I think it it is. I no longer live with my mother, but when I did, it was a very toxic environment- my mother was an alcoholic, and when she got enough of the drink she turned very violent. It put me in a situation many teenagers never had to deal with.
