Strive To Be Better in Life🌼
We are not trees, We not buildings, We are not statues, why remain the same if you’re not happy with your life. CHANGE. Remember we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, Jesus said that, why not apply those words into our lives. It is your season of change and time to invest in your best life ever.
Everyone has a story to tell and here’s Mine….
I am a free bird and I mingle very quickly with human beings unless otherwise. I have come to the realization that in life we tend to always want to fit in and seek endless validation, because we want to be the “cool kids”. Through my journey I did end up involving myself with the ”cool kids”, I slowly but surely became like them, started drinking, messing up with boys, gossiping, using curse words etc (just anything that had a bad reflection on me basically). Don’t get me wrong I know what was I doing but at the time I didn’t seem to find/see a way to get away from the things I was doing, I kept doing these things for several years.
Now when it comes to my spiritual life…. I loved God so much I knew who Jesus was (the son of God) and that in Him was the truth of life, but I kept doing all the things that drew me further away from Him and for some reason I didn’t know why I felt lost because I prayed, went to church, sing worships songs and read the bible and felt that I had Him in my heart.
It’s funny how God loved and still loves me so much and took me out of the storms I was in at the time. Now, a friend had told me something that truly touched me and genuinely melted my heart, it was truly an amazing moment, I felt like crying because I wasn’t expect it, she was one of the “cool kids’’ but she told me ‘’Ripanga, I see Jesus in you but the things you doing are not a reflection of that light and love’’ *sigh* I remember smiling at her. I was very happy to hear that regardless of my ways at the time she saw that in me. It felt like Jesus was waiting for me to repent and come back home to Him. The reason why I’m saying this is because I used to be a born again Christian…Yes, I was a backslider….
But God says
In verse Matthew 112:28:30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
God relocated me to another town but unfortunately still I was doing the same things for another year after my move. Guys, the devil wants to win your soul if you’re not careful he will take it without you noticing it, I am not joking because I have been lost so I know how it feels. Finally I repented.
God says in Act 3:19 “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out,that times of refreshing may come from the Lord”
And also in
2 Corinthians 7:9 “yet now I am happy, not because you were made sorry, but because your sorrow led you to repentance. For you became sorrowful as God intended and so were not harmed in any way by us”
And also in
Isaiah 1:18 Come now, let’s settle this,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.
God has forgiven me, he will never remind me of my sins again as he said. I believe in His timing everything is going to work out for my good. Yes! I might not be there yet, but as long as I walk with Him, He will mould me well. I’m so happy of who I am became now, I spend time with my Father, we talk for decades and I open up to Him about everything. God is the only person who keeps secrets and will not judge you. I just want to remind you right now that God loves you so much and I believe that He wants a relationship with you, please give Him a chance.
I hope that this small piece of my journey was encouraging for you to change your lifestyle.
