Finally!! So I have struggled with doing this for a while, because it will demand of me, a demand I really did not want to take on. Each time I pray, it gets impressed more and more on my heart, so I surrender and trust God. I will share as he leads, I do not aim for perfection, so please forgive me in advance if my sentences are not as well structured as they ought to be.
One of the core things I believe I am about is Intimacy with God, maybe it is because I like to “DO things” and God has been teaching me about “Being” (I will shed more light on this in the coming posts, by God’s grace). Towards the end of 2017, I felt a pulling in my heart to just sit, I began to feel dissatisfied with my walk with God, there had to be more, so I began to seek him (more like crying, wondering, thinking, and just listening). Shared my heart with a friend of mine and she too was yearning for more of God, we both started reading FIREBRAND by Debola Deji-Kurunmi and began to read (Awesome, anointed book. Read excerpt here).
2018 is my year to press into God like I have never done before Philippians 3: 7-16 came alive to me and some other scriptures which I will share soon.
“But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind”.
Join me on this journey in God, let is make 2018 our best year yet!
PS: I have already stopped my Bible in One year app following (it felt more of a burden, like i was just trying to join the list of people who went through the bible in 1 year in 2018) I need to get my heart right on this before a continue, if I will.
Let me stop here, will pick this up next time.
Cheers to an amazing year, and our slogan is Day by Day by GRACE.
