I gave my life to Jesus years ago, and I have never regretted making that decision. It all happened one fine day when i was in my friend’s car on the way to lunch and was somehow prompted to pick up a book called “The Confident Woman” by Joyce Meyer.
At first, I simply flipped through the pages without much intention of really digging into the contents of the book which aptly reflected the helpless and frustrating condition of my life back then. The words in that book were exactly what my heart and soul had been crying out for. It was like a punch in my face!
…It is displeasing to God
when you live life without confidence…
Through the Holy Spirit, I felt God say to me, “It is displeasing to God when you live life without confidence… the just shall live by faith and if he draws back or shrinks in fear, God’s soul has no delight in him (Hebrews 10:38 AMP). Think not of what you have missed, but instead so an inventory of you have and begin using them. Live purposefully and worthy and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise, sensible and intelligent people (Ephesians 5:14-15 AMP).
How true, relevant and timely those words were to me! I started to attend church and felt God affirming me Sunday after Sunday through messages, which continued to amaze and inspire me. I then realised that I needed Him in my life, He is the one whom i can rely on no matter what i face, and He is the only one who knows all my needs best.
I decided to give my life to Jesus, and truth be told, no gift is greater than salvation! Today, I have grown to become more dependent on Him, for only through Him, all things are possible! It has been – and still is – an amazing journey with God, where He continues to show me that He is real and ever faithful.
