This year, God has laid it on my heart that I need to develop consistency with everything He has placed in my hands and that includes my blogging. I want us to journey together this year with a better understanding of who I am as a person and why I decided to get into blogging. Soooo let’s get to it.
There is not much to know about me except for the fact that I am a 21 years old young lady who just loves Jesus and I minister through spoken word. However, the truth is that I haven’t always loved Jesus. I am an ex-atheist saved by mercy and even after I got saved, I still didn’t believe that I had the proper tools needed to truly live a successful Christian life. When I first got saved, I struggled a lot! I went back and forth with my relationship with God weekly because I did not believe this “Christian thing” was for me. I never saw a lot of Christians who were honest about their struggles so automatically I believed that everyone else had their life together while mine fell apart. For this reason, I thought that God chose some people for His work and He wanted nothing to do with me because I did not even know how to walk without falling.
I believe that I am Christ Living Microphone on earth that will be used to declare His spoken word to others. With that being said, my reasons for starting this blog is simple. I simply wanted to give a voice to issues within the Christian community that are not usually discussed. Transparency is a huge part of who I am and therefore is a huge part of this blog. I am not a Christian who has everything together at all, I am simply a mess covered in grace. I plan to expose my weaknesses on this platform a lot because I have come to realize that the strength of God cannot be showcased without bringing my struggles to the light. I am willing to be undignified for the sake of the gospel. I want to be as transparent as possible on this platform to simply encourage both Christians and those who aren’t Christians yet that this Christian life is not about perfection, but it is simply about growth. I want the unbelievers to know that they can come to God just as they are, and they do not need to fix themselves up first before coming to God. The fact of the matter is that we do not have the ability to come to God or to be a Christian by our own strength. John 6:44 says “For no one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them to me, and on the last day I will raise them up.” This verse changed my whole perspective of what it means to be a Christian because it shows that both the drawing and the raising are God’s responsibility. There is nothing that you can do to draw yourself closer to God but if there is any part of you that even desires to know who God is, that means that the Father is already drawing you to Himself. The Holy Spirit draws us to Himself and once we accept Him, we realize that the responsibility of being raised on the last day also belongs to God as well. The Father is the only one who is able to keep us from falling (Jude 1:24) and by our own strength we cannot sustain our salvation. I simply want to show Christians who may be struggling that it is absolutely okay to struggle because our struggle is just an evidence that we need to depend on Jesus more. The grace of God has proved to be more than enough for every struggle I have and every time I mess up, it drags me back to the feet of Jesus where I can obtain mercy and where I can also obtain the grace to do the will of God. The power to do the will of God literally lies with God. (Titus 2:11-12). This is why I expose my struggles so much because it is simply a representation of every time I tried to do things my way and failed. It is okay to not have everything together in this walk because truthfully nobody does. The Bible says in Proverbs 24:16 that a righteous man falls seven times and riseth up again and this verse was such a breath of fresh air to me because it allowed me to see that simply because I fall does not make me any less righteous. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I still struggle a lot with my Christian walk but in spite of my struggles, I am still righteous.
The “why” of this platform is simply the sharing of the Gospel in hopes that someone will be led to Jesus or encouraged in their faith. I want you to know that although I may have never met you, I am able to relate to your struggles in the faith and we can help each other grow. Feel free to reach out to me on any of my social media platforms if you need any prayers or encouragements because the same God that saved us from hell is able to save us from the power of sin. Truth be told, sin does not have dominion over us! Doubts, fears, sexual immorality, homosexuality, lying etc DOES NOT have dominion over us! We already have freedom in Christ and I pray that through this platform, we are able to stand firm in the freedom that Christ already gave. I look forward to sharing more content with you guys and I pray that you have an amazing week filled with the love, goodness and mercies of God.
