I finally understand the true meaning of Easter now.
So, I have been living in Alabama after college for a while now and I am realizing how much God is with me. In the past it has been rough and I have had my times where my eyes weren’t focused on God instead on men, lust and money. I was consumed with how depressed I was not being an athlete anymore for the University. I didn’t have a job for a while this summer and felt like I worked so hard in college and make such an impact in college that I did not get why I was not getting a job. I almost fell in love with a man out in Atlanta who had everything that would be considered amazing in the world. I was acting like his wife without the ring… I didn’t read my Bible and did not pray. I pushed God away because I knew what I was doing was not right in his Word. It’s funny how when you think that you have the best life and that you can get away from what God has for you… He steps right in and reminds you that only HE can fill you and make you WHOLE. I quickly figured that there was something not right in my being. I had stayed in Atlanta for over a week at that moment and had applied to about 30 different jobs and did not hear one thing back from any of them. see—- where you focus is makes a difference. I quickly started feeling bad becaus I was not working and I was just sitting around. I then just felt I had to read the Bible… I realized that I had lost the yearning and my heart wasn’t desiring and longing God like it used to. That was a problem… How am I supposed to tell other people to follow Jesus and be all happy if I wasn’t trying to listen to him. So I got in the Word and he reveiled that the relationship was not of Him and that the man I was with was not going to be leading me in Christ. … you see now, I am really intimadating to most guys because of my tall athletic stature and aggressive personality. But I knew that God was calling me out of that relationship and away from him. I spent the day with his sister and got to pour my heart for Jesus and for the lost to her. She cried; as did I. I got to share to her the heart of Christ. I had to wait for him to come home and talked with him… he understood and was heartbroken that we weren’t talking anymore but I knew that it was time for me to buckle down and become the woman that God wanted me to be. So back to Ttown I went. Got another job about a week later that I am currently at. That was God, because I got the 1st,2nd and 3rd interviews all in the same day. They were impressed with the way I talked with people and built relationships with complete strangers.
Over the past couple weeks I have finally gotten to spend time with my spiritual parents and learn things in the Word. I am getting consistant in the reading praying and seeking God… to where I can get back to being obsessed with him and to where I can tell people that Jesus is my boyfriend… Realign my focus on the Lord. So I am getting poured into and we just got done with the Equipped Conference… Holy Spirit fell everywhere in our church… God has released so many chains that were holding people down. We have missionaries from Mexico staying at the church for a month. They are all about my age and I can’t wait to grow in God with them and learn a lot from them. By keeping my eyes fixed on the Lord, God has brough two younger girls for me to pour my heart into and show them His love. Also, he has let me be a beacon at my work, where I am the youngest and only unmarried person there. One lady called the office on her off day and asked me to pray for her and the situation that was going on at her house. Only by God am I able to be able to do the things that are happening lately.
I started writing love letters to my future husband again. How refreshing it is to remember that someone else is waiting for me and is growing in Christ like me!
Lord come and fill my day with happiness.
THANK YOU LORD!
