I sat in my office, frustrated, tired, and ready to quit. I knew there just had to be more to life. After all, I was a Christian and my life was suppose to be different from those outside the church. Why wasn't I experiencing all that Christ had promised?
Here's my story.
I was raised in the church, giving my life to Christ at 9 years of age. As I entered the 7th and 8th grade, I began drifting away from God. It wasn't until I entered High School, that I decided to rededicate my life to Christ. From that point on, my desire was to experience all that God had for me.
But to be honest, I felt somewhat like the Apostle Paul. I wanted to do right, but failed. I would make progress and then slide back into doing things of which I was not proud. Over the years I began to feel more and more useless. I didn't see myself as producing fruit for God.
Outwardly, I put on a good face, and people saw me as a pillar in the Kingdom. But inside I felt like I was failing God, and failing the people who had expected more of me. Deep down inside I felt ashamed.
Then one day I finally reached the point where I knew I had to go "ALL IN" with God if I wanted my life to be different. It was my "Go/No Go" decision point. I decided to MAKE THE CHANGE.
Now I am experiencing life to the fullest. Oh yes, I still have those times of disappointment. But I am experiencing God's peace and joy, and His abundant life.
Are you tired of living life based on status quo? Are you ready to experience all that God has for you? Why not make the change today?
