God is Faithful
I grew up in a Christian home. I always believed in God and was taught about Jesus coming into this world to save us from our sin ever since I was a little girl. Even though I knew Jesus, I never knew what it meant to LIVE for Jesus. My own selfish desires took over. A void developed in my life as a teenager and I started to become a people pleaser. I found myself worrying about what other people thought of me. I found myself trying to be whoever I thought the people around me wanted me to be. My identity was no longer.
I continued going to church off and on as a young adult. After having my 2 daughters, my husband and I dedicated ourselves to bringing them up in church. One Mother’s Day, I remember God drawing me closer to him, closer than I ever had felt before. I knelt at the altar and I surrendered my all to him. All my heavy burdens, fears, and selfish desires were surrendered and I placed God’s desires over my life.
I no longer want to please others but now I want to please God through my faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus is my personal savior from my sin. The Lord is helping me to find the person who he created me to be. I am a servant of the Lord. 1 John 1:9 says, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness". As I continue to earnestly seek God, he continues to show me his faithfulness.
