  • the dreams in my heart
  • the hope that I have in Christ

Today – 15 January 2017

img_4287Today is another milestone for me, thank & praise God for it!

I attended for the first time a Christian service. For more than a year, I’ve been praying for God’s leading. Something inside of me has changed. I wanted to know God more and more, I wanted to know Him in a more personal way. I don’t want to be just a Sunday mass goer.. I wanted to follow God, obey Him and live this life in accordance to His will. I know I can only do that by studying His word and allowing the Holy Spirit to do His work in my life. It was a hard decision for me to make but God’s prompting is stronger, I just want to obey Him.

Being saved by God’s grace will make you want to please and obey God in every way possible, will make you want to be changed and will make you want to glorify God with the new life that you have in Christ.

Today, I finally made it, all because of God’s grace and work in my life. I attended the 11am service at Victory Fort. The series of talks is about Knowing GOD. Today’s preaching is about God’s generosity. I have never doubted God and His character of being a blesser, a very generous blesser. I am not rich, my family is not rich materially, but I know I am blessed since the day I was born. I am enjoying a simple, but very comfortable, sometimes even overly pampered life with my parents, I can only thank and praise God for giving me such wonderful, loving, generous parents. Because of this and a whole lot more, I am truly grateful to God.

This year and in the coming years, I am certain that God will bless me, my family, all loved ones and friends, with HIS very best. I am very expectant of God’s miracles and breakthroughs in my life.

I’m grateful that I am saved by God’s grace, I know God will extend His salvation to my family and everyone around me. May God use me so that everyone around me will have a saving knowledge of Christ. May they see God’s work in my life, may God be glorified in my life. God is generous, always, and forever. I just couldn’t thank Him enough for everything that He has done in my life. I am always and forever grateful.

Salvation is God’s full expression of His generosity, everything else is just a bonus.
