It’s been a couple days since we’ve been back from our retreat & we are STILL in awe of God. A few years ago, I would have never imagined spending an entire weekend praising & worshipping God. I remember always looking forward to the weekend & making plans to go out & drink/dance the night away. This is not meant to pass any judgement on anyone. I promise. I’m just simply stating facts on how jacked up MY life was & the destructive life I was living.
Listen, I was one who would look at someone crazy the minute they would start talking about God. I would be the first to turn away the minute they started “preaching”. But the reality was I wasn’t ready to face the TRUTH! And maybe you aren’t either & that’s to be understood. It can be scary at first.
Trust me, I get it! I was scared of the unknown. I wasn’t ready to let go of the things that felt “good” such as drinking, having sex before marriage, & doing things MY way. I wasn’t ready to confront the hurt that other people caused me, my mistakes, & the guilt/shame I carried for so long & everything else that comes with surrendering to God.
I’m far from perfect & I still have a long way to go but I thank God that I am not the “Jennifer” I once was. And that is all due to God’s GRACE!! By HIS GRACE I have been SAVED! His GRACE is sufficient.
This video was created by my sister & I just had to share because there are still no words to describe how amazing it was. This video doesn’t either but I hope it encourages you & helps you see things differently. Living for God doesn’t have to be boring.
I am beyond proud of her. She has grown so much. I give God ALL of the glory. Has it been easy? No! Does she miss the mark? Yes! On a daily basis. But that goes for every follower of Jesus. We are NOT perfect BUT every day is an opportunity to do better & that’s what matters. God’s mercies are new every morning meaning when we are blessed to see another day, which is His way of giving us a fresh new start, we can leave yesterday in the past & rely on Him for strength to keep going. I encourage you to seek God for yourself & allow Him into your heart. It will be the BEST decision you will EVER make. Looking forward to hearing all about it! Because He’s JUST THAT GOOD!!!!
