I Am A Witness!
Thanks you for stopping by, and welcome to my journey! This site is devoted to sharing my witness to the supernatural power of God and how it is transforming my life. Initially, I chose to use my weight loss as a "jumping off point" solely because it is tangible--it can be seen, felt and measured. Well, life happens, and what God showed me is that He is EVERYTHING! I can't put Him in a box as a dietitian, because He is much, much more than that--God is simply everything! At the center of it all is not what God does for me, but what I do as His representative and how I become a more effective witness for Him.
I've realized that it was not until I decided to give myself completely to God; to trust Him completely; and be obedient to His will in all things that I can fully access all that God is, and become what He created me to be. This means always using the gifts and opportunities He's given me to His glory. It also means being patient and having extremely "tough skin" because living the will of God is by no means an easy endeavor. In fact, it is hard, frustrating, disappointing, painful, scary, and sometimes lonely.
Intentionally building a deeper relationship with God is all those things because it goes against my human nature. It demands that I give up things--and people--that I like and feel real good. It calls me to be obedient when I don't want to. It entails me believing things I cannot yet touch, and just know that they are. It commands that I trust and believe only in God--without fail. It expects that I forgive people for ungodly things they've done and said to me, and love them anyway. It requires me to be of service to others without any expectation of personal gain or recognition. It forces me to look into the mirror of my soul, acknowledge and own my imperfections, and allow God to fix them. It obliges me to understand, accept and be comfortable with the fact that there will be times when the only person who will be with me is God. No, it has not been easy, it will never be, and I don't even think it should be. But it will always be necessary if I am to authentically live for God.
But with all its challenges, intentionally seeking to be closer to God is the absolute best thing I have ever done in my life! The joy comes not from anything material, the real joy and benefit is a life of love, peace, joy and power. The material things are simply the "icing on the cake," the "cake" is knowing God.
So, my blog will simply focus on my experiences in building a closer relationship with God and living his purpose for me. It will help keep me accountable. Some of the content will be included my book, "Another Day's Journey: My Walk With God." My commitment here and in the book is to be as transparent and authentic as God leads me to be. My desire to share in ways that inspire, give hope and affirm that a life lead by God is a life worth living. It happens one day at a time. The journey is worth every step, it's up to me to keep it moving.
To God be the glory!
