When we accept Christ, we die to our old selves. We become a new creation. There will be many challenges to overcome; many temptations. Just as Jesus was tempted, just as Satan sifted Peter and Job, Christians all over the country are suffering and being sifted for Christ. Because as Christians, we are called to suffer; to walk through trials; to withstand the enemy for Jesus. It is what strengthens our faith.
I didn’t fully come to realize a personal relationship with Christ until my thirties. This is where my Faith Walk began. Little did I know God had just called me to some of the most incredible, scary, and difficult times of my life.
Learning Obedience and Humility in Marriage
Our marriage went through times of intense happiness, sorrow and loneliness. Both Type-A personalities, neither wanted to yield to the Holy Spirit. I read the bible but didn’t understand what a godly wife was. Humbling myself before God was one thing. Humbling myself before my husband was something I could not grasp, no matter how hard I tried.
My daily prayer was, “Lord, please just keep my mouth shut. Please let me do no harm.”
