I'm growing so much ☺️

The quote below which says, “One by one I drowned all the people I’d been.”, really resonated with me.

I have been through one of the worst times in my life recently and dealt with it for months. I trusted God, all the prayers I made were answered. My faith grows everyday, and I am learning so much more about everything to do with God, and what life is really about. I have learnt that nothing in life will be perfect, and I’m only human, only God has control. I have the ability to make choices, and to choose to control certain things that I do, I can’t focus on other people. I am doing the right thing and focusing on the things I can control, and accepting what I cannot.

I feel fearless now. My life is far from perfect, but I know I am not on my own. And one thing I know I need to start controlling better is my anger, I get so angry, especially at men, two categories get it the worst…black men and white men. I cuss until the next day. And I’m learning to stop myself and let bygones be bygones. Yes, I believe the men I get angry with deserve it, but I know it’s not good to enjoy being rude to people. And it’s not good for me spiritually for me to keep being angry until it spills over to the next day when I’m no longer around the men who angered me in the first place. I’m happy I am realising this about myself, and know I need to stop. I want my anger to go away, I don’t want to be a horrible person, I want to be humble and patient and wise. So…yeh I think I can do it ☺️

The point is just be fearless. Accept yourself and ask God to help you x You can be transformed into someone new, your life will probably still be chaotic like mine is, but the way you view yourself will be different. You can’t be perfect, you never will be. When you know that, and believe it you will feel completely different about who you are.

Unplanned but most of us wore blue or dark colored outfits today, hence the desire to capture this in still frames.

These are the folks that I spend every weekend with, people that have now become friends whom I persevere reading the Bible with every week. God has brought us all together from different backgrounds and graced us with a growing faith and love for Christ and for each other.

And this is my prayer for each of them:

9 And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment,
10 so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ,
11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God. - Philippians 1:9-11
