This is my first day of writing on my own blog. How cool! God gave me a mouth that so often speaks too much, so now I can say what I want on my own site. The purpose of my blog is to share what God has taught me. May God always get the glory with everything I share and may He use this site to help others too.
With being born with a sin nature, I continually struggle with doing the right thing. My nature bends towards negativity, bad, wrong, junk in my life. I've learned that I need to be "intentional" about God's ways and God's will for my life and that it definitely does not come natural. However, as I've drawn closer to God through my personal relationship with Jesus, I now see that I'm starting to bend towards godliness. What a revelation! I can actually see positive changes in my life! This is God's design and purpose for me!
I've tried numerous things to "seek a better life," but only until I started to read the Bible regularly as well as study the Bible, did I experience some of the abundant life that Jesus claims that He died to give me. I just read that only about 31% of Christians today read the Bible daily. That is so sad since this is the only way to live a better life.
I used to read the Bible out of obligation rather than desire. Now I feel like I don't want to stop reading it. When I prayed and asked God to help me read the Bible, learn how to study it and interpret it just as He intended by giving me His wisdom, and the power to obey it, HE swiftly and gladly answered these prayers. I can now relate to Jeremiah 20:9 where he says....."your word in my heart is like a fire..." He goes on to say that he cannot contain this fire - he is bursting with flames to light more hearts on fire for the Lord! Amen! This is my goal!
