have you explained this year spiritual journey? can you, please? like what started it, how it's made a change, etc.?

i had a friend who was taking a year to prepare her heart for marriage. she is 2 years older than me and was having issues with new men in her life because of old baggage.

i was done with dating at that point, so inspired by her, i decided to dedicate the year. wait let me back up. i didn’t decide anything. she told me about her hiatus and i kind of scoffed at the idea. 6 weeks later it was put into my heart to do something similar but with my own goals. i didn’t want to do it. i fought my spirit tooth and nail. but when God tells you to do something, who are you to say no?

So i set my own rules. I made commitments to going to church as well as Bible study. i decided to try the “read a whole bible in a year" thing, but yea, that aint work out lol but i did consistently read the word. i dedicated myself to prayer and developing my relationship with God. and then there was the other stuff, that’s more personal, like dealing with daddy issues and stuff that i won’t go into today.

as for has it changed me?

absolutely

i’m so firm in my walk it’s ridiculous. this does not mean i don’t have days when my faith is waning, but i have developed a heart sensitive to God. I feel Him and things have been revealed to me, like my purpose in life, as well as my purpose in dealing with the guy I’m dealing with. 

i live a life of calm now. this is not to say things are perfect, but i have a joy about me; an unshakable joy, where no matter how chaotic life is, I know to cast my worries on Him and surround myself with positive people to help me get through it.

have things changed?

yes

everything has changed

Job 22:21-30

New International Version (NIV)

21 “Submit to God and be at peace with him;
    in this way prosperity will come to you.
22 Accept instruction from his mouth
    and lay up his words in your heart.
23 If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored:
    If you remove wickedness far from your tent
24 and assign your nuggets to the dust,
    your gold of Ophir to the rocks in the ravines,
25 then the Almighty will be your gold,
    the choicest silver for you.
26 Surely then you will find delight in the Almighty
    and will lift up your face to God.
27 You will pray to him, and he will hear you,
    and you will fulfill your vows.
28 What you decide on will be done,
    and light will shine on your ways.
29 When people are brought low and you say, ‘Lift them up!’
    then he will save the downcast.
30 He will deliver even one who is not innocent,
    who will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands.”

 

thank you for sharing. this is definitely an important passage to read and it’s definitely a word in season for me, even though it’s no longer morning lol
