If there’s one thing I’ve learned on my journey so far it’s that God works insanely fast in the hearts of those who seek Him passionately. It’s bizarre when I think about where I was in my life, my walk, my being- only a year ago. When I try to fathom how far I’ve come in a matter of 12 months it causes me to reflect a lot on God’s faithfulness: how I was faithful to God when He told me to stay home, even though this was the LAST place on earth I wanted to be.
But just as I was faithful to Him He remained faithful to me, and He has blessed me with so much; not by providing me with what I wanted, but by showing me that what He has to offer is so much better! He has showed me that being blessed means being a blessing; it’s amazing how many lives have been impacted just because I have one. My life has had and continues to have so many positive influences on people…where would they be now if I had chosen to take my own path? If I would have denied God’s request and abandoned His will? So many people would still be in darkness, including myself.
I don’t say that for my own glory, but for HIS. I am so humbled that God uses ME, and I find it very difficult to grasp and measure the depth of His love- that even when I thought I was useless and good for nothing, when I’d felt that way because it’s all I’d ever been told, God was here- loving me, even when I didn’t know it. He was here, reeling me in and preparing me for so much PURPOSE.
I would be absolutely nothing if Christ didn’t live in me, and for that I will glorify Him. I will sing praises to my God as long as I live.
