This morning as I got dressed for church I began to reflect on my 44 years of life on this earth. Nothing that I have done or did allowed me to wake up this morning but God’s grace and mercy. Out of all the mornings, why did I reflect today? I could recall being shot at, being raped, colliding with a semi-truck but with each recollection I saw God holding my hand. You may think why would God be there during the hard times and not help you, he did help me he gave me strength to endure.
God has a purpose and plan for my life, I am a living testimony; by me telling the goodness of Jesus someone who may feel like they don’t have a reason to exist my testimony may give them hope. Before throwing in the towel of failure, guilt, and shame just know we are all living testimonies and regardless of what we go through in life there is someone out there just like us who went through but came out alright. Our ability to live is within, deep down inside we have an inner strength that we didn’t think we had; we are conquerors, we are victorious, we are LIVING TESTIMONIES.
God is good and he is definitely worthy of the praise! I can’t fathom my life without him, how does one even function without him. I know there are some that don’t believe, maybe their prayer is taking a little longer to get answered or something happened to make them a nonbeliever but I trust God no matter what. I have been in situations that the only person that could deliver me from the enemies hands was God!
There is a song that my grandfather use to sing in church on Sundays the song was “somebody prayed for me, had me on their mind, took the time and prayed for me, I’m so glad they prayed, I’m so glad they prayed, I’m so glad they prayed for me.” I don’t think I would have made it this far without someone praying for me. I have faced a lot of oppositions and the most bearing ones have been lately, sometimes wanting to throw in the towel but I kept the faith that things would work out.
I don’t usually write blogs about my faith in God but someone needs to know that God will make a way just trust him and never doubt because he will definitely work things out. When you truly put your faith in God he can and will deliver you out of any situation.
