I was christened as a baby, like many of us often are, but this baptism symbolised my conscious and 'grown up' decision to walk in faith and submit my life to the Lord. It has been just over eight weeks since I asked God for his salvation and so much has changed within me. I am still abstaining from 'that' (you can read all about it here) and praying for God's strength to lead me not into temptation and keep me on the narrow path until I am married.
I ask God daily to control my tongue because boy, there are so many things that go on in life that make you want to unleash some serious venom on people, but it solves nothing and just leaves you feeling worse than before, so that is something that is happening less and less. Thank God. It is not easy, but change starts from within. This scripture sums it all up;
'Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers'
So there you have it. If you have nothing good to say, don't say it. Words should be used to build up and uplift. I am learning this more and more each day.
This is also my 200th post, woah time has flown. I'm still finding my feet with this blog, but for now it is what it is, which is a reflection of me. I'd like to say a huge THANK YOU! to all of my wonderful followers who have stuck with me for the journey. I really do appreciate it. God bless you all x
