Welcome Angelena. Great smile on your profile picture. Let me guess, that picture was taken AC opposed to BC.I'm still fun and awesome person right?
Thanks for sharing! My background is similar, I have been a Christian for 15 years now. My friends at the time didn't understand either, some I lost and some I didn't but I have learned that having perpetual joy is far better than having fun for a time. This was very encouraging.Recently finding God and Jesus as my personal savior, I have dived head first into my bible! I started in the New Testament as a friend of mine suggested this was the best place to begin. I've personally never read threw the whole bible so right now I am. I literally bring it every where, even if I don't get to read it while I'm at the grocery store, it's in my purse. I try very hard every day now that my bible gets priority over my cell phone and if I'm on my phone I have spent a lot of time on TJ since I found it. Though threw my personal experience of the world around me, this isn't true for a lot of people. Honestly it's like I'm the outkast anymore. I have stopped drinking and tried to put all my sinful ways behind me. I've also found an amazing church I've started to go to and probably go to for the rest of my life. There is a lot of things I've prayed hard about and God has allowed me to be free from the temptations of my sins and it is an amazing feeling.
Not saying that it has been the easiest journey because of the world and people around me. I used to be the girl who was the craziest at the party, drank tons and simply made a fool of myself. It embarrasses me to think about it now, but that's not who I am anymore. Though my friends and family who still drink and party don't really understand my new life. They have told me "your not as fun anymore", and at first this was hard. I went outside and took a walk. This is something I do everyday. I find that going outside and taking a walk is my best time to pray. After being told I wasn't much fun anymore it kinda hurt. I looked up in the sky and asked God, I'm still fun and awesome person right? Truly i tell you one of the most amazing things in my whole life happened. Two little birds flew down from the tree and started flying so close to my head in a circle, I had never saw anything like it in my whole life. Right then I knew it was God just telling me, Angelena don't worry your doing the right thing! This doesn't mean I would have have ran right inside and chugged a beer without a sign like this, but it was something I will never ever forget. My new journey with God is one I will walk for the rest of my life and I am very excited to see what God has in store for me and how much I get to grow with him and the word! Though yes I do give my bible number one priority because without Christ I don't know where I might be at, honestly maybe in jail or a grave. That might sound harsh but it's the bad reality of a sinful life, it's scary and dark. Threw God it's bright and so peaceful. For the last few years I've struggled with anxiety very bad, no medicines helped. They actually made it worse, the only thing that ever helps is God.
I've try to help everyone in my life who never reads their bibles or prays, I have found that a lot of people find God scary! He isn't scary that is the devil trying to keep us away from hearing the word! In just a few short months I've learned all this! I can't wait to see all God has in store for me! I honestly think I belong in the church helping doing all I can! Maybe this is why God has helped me learn so fast, either way it's sparked a fire in my heart and it's never going out! My dream is one day maybe get to sing in church or any where about the lord! I love to sing and always dreamed of going to Nashville and getting signed. Though I think I'm meant for way more than that, singing the praises of our lord!!
Thank you for taking the time out of your days to read this!! God bless everyone
