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 everyone! Today I have for you an amazing post from a good friend and my old small group leader. What she has to say is so crucial, and so important in life: you are unique; don't blend in!! I pray you would take her words to heart- but even more importantly, that you would take GOD's word to heart. Love you all!
Do you know how amazing you are? Seriously, I'll say it again. Do you know how AMAZING you are? Don't just take that for granted. You possess talents and abilities that no one else has! You are uniquely made!! There is no one in the world like you. You are destined for greatness! You have so much potential. Don't be discouraged when you see other peoples lives on social media. Social media only portrays the best parts of our lives. Everything is filtered and catered to show the best parts of life.
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.
We've made it through fourteen posts so far, which brings us to the third week of Watch Them Fall! Today we have a post from a good friend of mine. In this post, she really stresses on something that I think is super important. I pray that God speaks to you through this, and may you be filled with the fire of Jesus!
Have you ever been in a comfortable position? When you don't know where you belong? Or where you are going? One day I just started feeling this way because I didn't graduate on time from high school. I was feeling like a sucker because I believed that God was always with me and nothing is impossible.
