Today’s article is greatly inspired by an ongoing campaign in a ladies’ group I am a member of. I’ll encourage you read till the end and be blessed. My articles can be shared because as God helps me to bless you, you owe it to humanity to be a blessing in turn. Let the chain of blessing keep on.
I remember growing up in a Christian home under very sound Christian parents. Aside from the fact that my parent were leaders in the church, they were model leaders at home. As every child, I expected to keep basking in the Lord as my parents did after I was led to Christ. Off course I did and well now I know what I didn’t know then. When a child succeeds and does well, its natural to think you are more intelligent than others. But many of it is attached to answers to someone’s prayers.
As life continued I happened to advance forward and somewhere along the line i lost my christian experience but didn’t care so far I was morally okay. I remember “near sin” moments i had down the years. How i didn’t commit such sin even when people who I expected to be who they supposed to be happened to be otherwise, I cant explain. But looking back, I can only relate it to one thing still – An answer to someone’s prayer for me.
God bless the people I came in contact with and later the strike that happened for four months, who knew that was when God wanted me to really find him. I have seen the difference since those months. From then till now, I cannot say they were all express and bump-free. There were moments of great high and lows, disappointment in myself and people around. There were moments of depression and bitterness. But in all, there were moments of God’s faithfulness and indeed again – an answer to someone’s prayer.
I have traveled down the road of life and have had to turn back and then turn back to continue the journey. But what I am ever grateful for is that my maker never left me by myself out in the cold and most especially, he used situations, people, places, circumstances and even troubles to keep me on track. In my present position and status, I have seen God come through for me even in situations that to man is so bad. I have seen him send favors my way and i am in total awe of his wondrous acts and plentiful blessings.
I know that to a large extent, my audience would be women as much as I haven’t restricted it so. God has designed us women to always want to pursue after what is good and what we feel is needful either for ourselves (singles) or for others and even more for our families (married). I invite every visitor on my blog to understand that there is a God up in heaven who created us and he did that with a plan and purpose in mind. Seek him, Find him, Accept him and believe Him. Also, Confess all of your weaknesses, strength, plans and everything to him. Are there things you want to get off your chest but can’t because of what people would say? Tell him, I promise you, he wont judge you, he’ll listen and help you.
Lets travel down this road together with Him as our guide and watch him come through for us every step of the way. He is no respecter of denominations, persons or even faith. He isn’t bothered about the color of your skin or the kind of life you have lived. He is who he says he is. He is JESUS – The WAY, The TRUTH and He is LIFE.
To see answers to your prayers, come be an answer to someone’s prayer – JESUS. His utmost desire is to draw all men to himself.
“So Christ can save those who come to God through him. Christ can do this forever, because he always lives and is ready to help people when they come before God.” ~ Hebrews 7:25 (ERV)
“Come to me all of you who are tired from the heavy burden you have been forced to carry. I will give you rest. Accept my teaching. Learn from me. I am gentle and humble in spirit. And you will be able to get some rest. Yes, the teaching that I ask you to accept is easy. The load I give you to carry is light.” ~ Matthew 11:28-30 (ERV)
“What you should want most is God’s kingdom and doing what he wants you to do. Then he will give you all these other things you need.” ~ Matthew 6:33 (ERV)
God bless you all and remain in his love. Mrs O loves you big.
