Hello everyone. 🙂
The two-year anniversary of my re-baptism recently passed. I thought that I would like to do a blog post today on some of the spiritual lessons that I have been learning since then. I hope that this blog post will be an encouragement to many people.
- Trust God fully. I almost feel as if I could just stop writing right here. This is a lesson that I am still learning.
- The word of God is powerful. Last year, I went through an intense season of doubt which threatened to destroy my faith completely. One of the things that held me through that time was Jude 24 and 25. I very often claimed this promise when the doubt would come over me. God is good. He has led me out of this season of doubt and I am so grateful for Him.
- I need to spend more time thinking about God and His Word and less time thinking about my sinfulness. We really do tend to become like the things that we focus on, so in order to become more like Jesus, we need to spend time thinking about and talking about Jesus.
- I need to praise God more and to reminisce about His faithfulness to me. God is so good! He keeps giving me undeserved blessings! When I spend time thinking about and praising God for my current blessings, and when I remember the things that He has done for me in the past, I feel encouraged. Satan loves to cover up God’s blessings and to only show us all of our defeats. Let’s not participate with this depressing plan; let’s praise God instead. 🙂
I hope that these thoughts have encouraged you all. I am a definite work in progress, and I am grateful for Jesus who loves us all so much, and who is so patient with us all.
