The Christian Life

I am a Christian

I believe in God

I believe in Jesus

I believe in the Holy Spirit

I believe Christ died for my sins

I believe I am born again through Jesus

...

I have been a Christian for as long as I can remember. I grew up in a Christian home where we went to Church every Sunday and that’s just the way it was. I’ve had an interesting walk with God, as sometimes I was really close to Him, and other times it was like I barely knew Him. I used to go to youth group but that was mainly to hang out with friends not as an extra way to spend time with God. I went to Church every Sunday because my parents told me to, not because I wanted to worship God.

On the 20th October 2019 I was baptised at Peninsula City Church. It was an amazing step in my journey with God, and really helped me feel more secure in my faith. I have grown so close to God in the past year especially, and I feel as though I get closer to Him every day. I can turn to Him with anything I have on my mind, good or bad, and just talk to Him like I talk to my friends. Because that, ultimately, is the most amazing thing about my relationship with my Lord, is that He is my best friend and I can talk to Him about anything.

I wanted to share some of my favourite bible verses here on my blog. I haven’t written any pieces before which relate to my faith. I am not a bible basher, and I’m not writing this to tell people they must now go to Church this Sunday. I am writing this because I hope these verses might help you or touch you in some way. Maybe they’re something you just need to hear right now. Maybe they spark something in you that might start your own journey with our amazing God.

Psalm 112:7“She confidently trusts the Lord to take care of her”

  • I love this verse so much, as it really speaks to me. I used this verse in my testimonial before I was baptised. I strive with all I have in me to make sure I always trust the Lord, because I know if I do that He will care for me.

Psalm 46:5“God is within her; she will not fall”

  • This verse is amazing because it makes me think that God is like a pair of wings. As long as you love, trust and talk to Him, He will make sure that nothing happens to you.

Proverbs 31:25“She is clothed with strength and dignity. She laughs without fear of the future”

  • This is yet another of my absolute favourite verses. I have it hanging on my wall, as it was a present from my fiancé’s parents when I got baptised. I want to always be as strong as I possibly can, like this verse implies. I want to always have dignity and make myself proud, like this verse implies. I never want to be afraid of the future, and I know if I trust God, I have no need to be afraid.

2 Chronicles 15:2-4“The Lord is with you when you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you”

  • This verse is important to me. It was a tough time, and I was praying to God. I placed my hand on my bible and asked Him to give me a verse which applied to the situation, and when I opened my bible, I saw this verse. The message is so simple = if you love and trust God, He will love and trust you back. If you look for and pray to God, He will listen and be there for you.

These 4 verses I’ve shared are very close to my heart, and I pray that maybe they are what you needed right now. Whether you are having a tough time, or you are just curious about this God guy and this Church thing, whether I know you or not, contact me and ask me the questions you have, and I’ll try my best to answer them.

God is love
