Y3W | A New Direction

I haven't updated this bloggy in quite some time. Truth is, I just haven't been inspired to write. And then it hit me tonight, as I was drafting a note on facebook about my spiritual journey, a thought struck - 'Post it on your blog too!' To me, that was a pretty clear instruction from the Lord, so I thought it best to obey. So here it is, in its entirety:

To my facebook family:

I am so thankful for this medium called the internet, which keeps us all connected, though distance and time may separate us. As I've moved away from home and had to learn new places and meet new friends, I've come to realize several things. And I just have to share with you...

You are all in my life for a reason, season or a lifetime. I'm not sure now what the outcome will be, but I will say that I am blessed to know you and you have all impacted my life in some way. Which is why I'm sharing my journey with you, I hope you'll read it through.

I was immensely blessed to grow up in a Christian home and was taught biblical principles at an early age. For all these years I've known how to 'play the part'. But now I'm truly learning what it takes to be a true follower of Christ. So I'm asking a favor of you.

If you believe you are going to Heaven, ask yourself why you believe this. And then, check out what the Bible has to say about it. See Matthew 7:13-14, Luke 13:22-30

 If you call yourself a Christian, how are you serving God-does it align with the Bible? See Luke 9:23-26

I do not pretend to be a biblical scholar or minister. I am still learning, and He's still working on me. I'm sharing with you verses that I have studied recently that are helping me grow spiritually and deepen my relationship with the Lord. And I'm learning that a major area I have been lacking in is speaking boldly about the awesome God I serve. Christians are called to share the great news about Jesus with EVERYONE, so why wouldn't I at the very least talk to my friends and family about God? 

I hope that as I continue my Christian journey you'll allow me to share what I've been learning in my personal Bible study and I'd love it if you shared your journey with me as well. 

And I have one last favor to ask. Lastly, I'm asking for you to hold me accountable. The Bible says 'all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God' Romans 3:23 As members of God's family we are to hold each other accountable, which sometimes requires that we correct our brothers and sisters, in love. If we humble ourselves and open up to other believers what we're struggling with, it will only help us grow closer to each other as well as the Lord.

So I ask-will you join me?

Please pray for me, and I will continue to do the same for you!
