If you must boast… do it this way!

Recently visited China and the one thing that was central in my mind was that this country doesn’t like Christians or Christian worship.

And I am always honest with you guys…

So I am just telling you that your girl was on her knees begging God to not let me get locked up in this country cause HE knows that I can’t control myself when it comes to praising HIM!

You see, I have aBoasting - Godly Woman 911 problem! A big one… I love to boast… and not just any kind of boasting… I am very specific in my boasting! Nothing delights me more than boasting about the power, strength, grace, mercy and abounding love of God.

Prior to my trip, a bible verse caught my attention:

““Return home and tell how much God has done for you.” So the man went away and told all over town how much Jesus had done for him.” Luke 8:39

You know this caused me to do my praise dance.

For those that worried about me travelling, I called and shared the good news I had found in the bible and encouraged everyone not to worry… God was going to do amazing things on my journey.

I am still on my journey, but I can praise God for so many things! Here is my current boasting now to you:

  • New friends in a beautiful country created by the Most High God
  • A successful trip with lots of great networking
  • A deeper understanding of the culture and beliefs of China to drive target prayer
  • Safe journeys to China and in China

I can go on and on… but you get my point.

Food for thought: What can you boast about today… telling others about the goodness and greatness of our God?

Prayer: Oh what a mighty God we serve! Creator, Most High God, King of Kings, El-Shaddai. How we love you and lift up your name in praise and adoration. Lord, when we want to boast about anything that is not you, forgive us and cause a stirring within our heart to stop. May your light and joy shine through our lives so that we can impact others. May your name be glorified and praised. In Jesus name. Amen

Mercy, grace, and love be with you.

I became a Christian at a young age and baptized at the age of 13. My journey has been bittersweet. A majority of my life I have been a Christian. But not a Godly Woman. After many failures, tears and tribulation I realized that something in my Christian life had to change. No longer can I profess that I am a Christian but don’t show daily that Christ lives in me! No longer can I claim that I am HIS child when my thoughts, actions and deeds were not overflowing with HIS love. No longer could I live the way I was living and not seek him daily in prayer, scripture and worship. As the Lord blessed me with that knowledge I felt him also calling me to write my journey and share my thoughts, learning and mistakes with others. Hence the reason for 911. Not only was it a crises in my life to become a Godly Woman but as I delved into scripture to understand how to be Godly, I realized that we are living in crazy world where the desire to be Godly was no longer important. Many boast that they are a Christian and weekly attend Church, but lack the Godly qualities that Christ seeks in ALL of his followers. My deepest desire is to serve Christ faithfully, obey HIM joyfully, trust HIM always, seek HIM eternally and become his close friend so that I can share in his truth and knowledge. I pray that this blog blesses you and provide you with the strength, courage and wisdom to be a Godly Man or Woman.
