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?
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?
everything has changed
