I am so happy and thankful that I reconciled my relationship with The Lord and He saved me when he did. I have an immeasurable amount of peace and find so much pleasure in things of The Lord.
By now most of you know that I am a Born Again Chrisitan, if you didn't, I reconciled my relationship with The Lord almost three years ago and my life has never been the same. I grew up in with Pentecostal foundations but it wasn't until recently that I actually have cultivated and nurtured my relationship with The Lord.
The joy I have can't be compared to anything I ever did in the past. I was never going to be happy; not with a my job, my husband, my daughter, clubs, dancing getting tipsy, emotional relationships or proving myself to others. In searching for happiness and to fill the void, I actually become more and more depressed because nothing ever worked and I was believing every single lie the devil threw my way. In building my relationship with Jesus I have become so aware of how the enemy operates and how deceiving he can be. That is the key really, because once you know how something works you know how to avoid falling it to it's traps.
I can assure you I would have been divorced, on depression medication or dead. The world provides only temporal pleasures and often times pleasures that aren't pleasing to The Lord and break his heart. The joy you are given when you come to Jesus is so immense and overwhelming it surpasses all understanding. My daily prayer is for The Lord to pull me closer and take me deeper, I want to be consumed with all things Jesus cause that's when I am happiest.
My riches are in The Lord, I am not wealthy but I have lots of love and lots of faith!
I encourage you today to develop a personal relationship with the Lord if he isn't already your personal savior and if he is, dive in deeper invite him into your heart and ask him to invade it, to break it for things that break his, to move in it freely. I promise you won't regret it.
