I originally wanted this blog to be about my views on politics and to share some of my faith, but I wanted to find a way to properly execute both of them. Although politics have taken over this blog I thought today would be a good time to share my faith with you guys. I don’t really share a lot of personal information, and I plan on keeping it that way but in order for me to really talk about my journey with God I’m going to reveal a little bit to you guys.
At this point in my life, my relationship with God is the strongest it’s ever been. That doesn’t mean that there is not more room to grow because there is. Not too long ago I thought I had my life figured out. I made my own plan for my life. I went to church but I didn’t fully allow God to work in my life. I convinced myself that the direction I was going in was Gods plan. Then He put a stop to it. I was confused and heartbroken. I thought “Why would God allow me to live like this for so long, then when I finally think I have it all figured out he takes it away from me.” Because he knew I deserved better. He knew the life that I was living was not the one he planned for me. After he revealed that to me, he healed my broken heart. I put God in complete control over my life after that, and I’ve never been happier. In order to be truly happy, you have to let God have complete control over your life. You’re still going to go through some bad days but the good days with God are worth it.
A verse that has been stuck in my head through this journey also happens to be my favorite verse. John 16:33 “I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace, In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
God showed me that I am enough. He showed me my worth.
