Three years ago (2015), I started attending church regularly. Then about a month later I got Baptize and saved on Easter day (April 7, 2015). I can’t help to think of who I was, who I am, and who I hope to be. God is a part of me now. Some of the people in my life think that “this God stage” of my life will go away, but I know to remove Him from me would be like taking away my heart.
I once said, “Being a Christian is easy.” I was wrong. Being a Christian is hard, but I believe letting God love you and you loving God in return is worth it. On the hard days, I learned that I can run to Jesus. There is an image in my mind where Jesus stands with his arms opened wide, waiting for me to take his hand and be pulled into his embrace. Who I was, didn’t know this about Jesus, but who I am, knows how to hold on to Him. Who I hope to be is the person that God is creating in me and He’ll never let go.
“Hold tight to God, your God, just as you’ve done up to now” Joshua 23:8 (MSG).
This all started three years ago with me entering a loving church where God placed me. People say, “They found God’ or “God has found me.” I believe both are wrong. I didn’t find God and God didn’t find me. He was there all along. I just didn’t know it. I was blinded by the world and couldn’t see Him. Now I can see God’s love for me.
“The God of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.” 2 Co. 4:4
Jesus is the King of my heart.
