Two Things that Define Us

We all go on a journey with God, that shapes us regarding patience. It used to be a running joke with my friends – that I had none – and I would forge my way through any obstacle I came across in order to get to where I needed to go

Yet, over time, God showed me a better way

He showed me that although I could achieve things independently, by walking with Him, there was always a lesson that I may never have learnt, if I had forged my way through, as before

Plus, waiting for God’s perfect timing not only allowed me to grow, but the outcome almost always exceeded my expectations, and I realised that God’s way was the best, and so I learnt patience

However, sometimes, although we may get to where God showed us He wants us to be, it’s our humility that keeps us there. Our achievements all come down to God blessings, if we have followed His path and waited patiently, but our attitudes will show people exactly where our hearts truly are when we have success

How many times have we seen or heard about a person that was once humble, yet, fame, and all that it brings “ruined” them in some way, and ultimately destroyed where they were destined to be

Friends, God can give us a blessing, but He can always take it away too. This is never to punish us, but to protect us

I want to be the person who not only waits for the Lord to say “move” or “go”, but the person who then remains humble when my dreams are met and life exceeds my expectations

“Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.”

Colossians 3:12

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
