“You were made for such a time as this,”, I reminded my friend as we connected over Zoom.
These are not normal times and friends that I long to hug and just give a big squeeze, I find comfort in seeing their smile over our weekly chats. The big topics for the week included not only the delay in USPS shipments, but we lamented considerably over the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the US. As she shared her concerns, it reminded me of our first weeks of the announcement on the island, my fears and how I overcame them.
I shared with her a summarization of an article that I contributed, but I wanted to leave her with the comfort that God is in control and we need to find our purpose even in this time.
“Effective tomorrow, the entire island will be placed on a curfew. No one is to leave their homes. It is a mandatory requirement for all businesses to be closed. Any business or person breaking this new law will be fined and sentenced to one year in prison,” announced the Premier.
I shared this as a contributing writer on YMI, read the rest of the article here.
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.
