It is funny how god works . I was just going to relax, I was looking forward to it, then I get the urge to write and I feel inspired. It came to me to write about my faith, so here goes.
I would love to be able to say I was a christian from childhood, or my conversion came because I wanted to know god out of a genuine desire, but these things never happened.
I ended up on gods shores because I was a mess, wrecked, in the pits, and I was on my way out of this life. So I ended up in his lap because life eventually brought me to this place.
And am I glad.
My journey started from there, a long time ago now, but it was gradual from then on. Getting to know the one I didn’t know, a fascinating journey now I look back.
It is like a marriage or friendship, and it takes time to get to know one another.
I do know him now and alot of that has come down to attending the beautiful church that I have been blessed to be part of for the past ten years. It is here that I have grown, matured and am flourishing in my spiritual gifts.
I have been given strength to endure sometimes impossible situations and whenever I have found circumstances getting too much for me, god has made a way out.
My life since becoming a christian has not been plain sailing. It has been fraught with difficulties, but I have been challenged and grown so much that I hardly recognise myself anymore. In many ways I feel as if I have come of age.
I have read and studied, but mostly attended a church where I have been given the most amazing spiritual food and wine, all under the umbrella of a lovely pastor and his family. I am part of a growing church and christian family and I feel so blessed.
So there it is, some of my christian background.
